Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the replacement wheel shaft assembly for Thule bike racks. Now, this replaces one strap assembly for the Thule Echelon Double Track and Big Mouth roof mounted bike racks. It simply installs in the T-track of the carrier wheel tray. It does come with the wheel strap, and you got the control tab right here. It's very easy to operate. Once you have it installed, I do want to point out that most of the unit is a plastic construction, but it feels very strong and durable.

The connection rivets right here are metal, as well as the buckle itself, that's a metal construction. So it does have a nice, strong, durable design.To release the strap you pull in on the control knob, or push in, and that'll release the strap from the holder. With it installed, and with your bike on there, you would place this through the wheel, feed it into the buckle, and then you can hear it clicking. Every time it clicks, it engages, and obviously that would be in the up position, as you feed that through. Then once you have it snug, you push this down, and it further secures the strap into the transport position.

Then again, when you're ready to release it, you can lift that up, push in on the tab, and remove the strap from the holder. That's gonna do it for today's look at the replacement wheel strap assembly for Thule bike racks.

Thanks for stocking Thule replacement parts. They are hard to find at retail stores. Thule is a bit pricey, but good quality.


Whenever I need a product or part, I turn to This recent purchase fixed a need to restore an old roof rack to carry my bicycle. I bought the rack years ago so I wasn't sure I be able to locate a new one. A simple inquiry with help from a well thought out menu selection, there it was! Thanks, etrailer.

The part was needed to maintain use of my roof rack. Still used and good as new.


Seems to fit Thule Prologue (and older Thule) trays as well. Doesn't include rubber wheel rim pad supplied with earlier model straps.

Still works fine.


Just a few days before we were to leave for a trip out west with our bikes on our Thule cartop rack, I foolishly drove through a drive-up window at a fastfood restaurant -- the result was that one of our bikes was ripped from the cartop rack. Fortunately the bike was undamaged, but the Thule wheel strap assembly for my rack was destroyed, rendering my rack unusable. I tried REI and they didn't stock the part, then I tried Thule and they couldn't get the part to me before my departure. Etrailer had the part in stock (at a lower price than Thule) and shipped it to me second day air. Everything worked out beautifully and we're now out west, enjoying our biking, which would have been impossible without etrailer's great service and inventory. Thank you.


I ordered these along with the wheel trays to build a custom bike rack on the frame of our motorcycle carrier. It was great to find a place that would list and sell these components which allows creativity for us handy people.
The quality, functionality, and adaptability of these parts is great. Very pleased with the pieces and purchase experience from etrailer!


Perfect drop-in replacement for my bike rack's straps which broke under abnormal circumstances. Fits and functions without any issues at all. etrailer support was very friendly and helpful throughout the exchange.


While this is a perfect replacement for the thule piece I had that rusted out ( after about 10 years) . I've found that this one has started to rust out in just a year.
It is the ONLY replacement I've found, and at a great price, so it works great.
If need be , I'll be buying all new ones next year.
( as you can see the other parts are rusting as well,,, but same goes.. only replacement I could find.. so I'll buy those in a year also )


Product is fine. Not the same quality as the older Thule straps, but everyone is making everything cheaper these days, and charging more for the cheaper product.

Comments on the service:
Initial sales person was excellent. Unfortunately the wrong product was shipped. However, my email describing the problem was answered in less than an hour, and the proper product was shipped (have not received yet). So, 5 stars for service; everyone makes mistakes.


They have obscure little parts. Ordering is easy and good check out and shipping. Should be your go-to for roof rack, hitch, whatever. Just do it and don’t worry about it.


Items as described. Packaged very well. Arrived as promised. Tracking information provided, and accurate. Less expensive than ordering directly from the manufacturer. Great transaction.


Your service is amazing. The product is ok However, I would never buy that bike trailer again because the replacement parts are way too expensive. Thule parts in general have a short life span. Läst Thule purchase fir me ever!!!


If you need hard to find parts, etrailer is your one stop seller. I needed numerous new parts for my old Thule Velo Vise Fork Mount Tray. Needless to say etrailer had everything I needed. I already told friends and family about this seller.

Thanks etrailer!


This wheel strap assembly works great. It is easier to use than the one that came with my bike rack.


The bike tray wheel straps are just what I needed. Thanks etrailer for the great service and pricing!


Great product, great service, and rgreat ecommendations for options from your staff on how I could fix my bike trailer by mix and match with available parts


the replacement strap arrived on time, and it was the right item. Wish they were designed a little more rugged. My last one broke one of the rivets holding it together, and it wasn't that old. So, not the best quality. I think being extra careful when clamping them down, making sure they are straight, could help them last longer.


These do exactly what they are supposed to do, and it was easy at to determine that this was the right part before ordering it.


New ones feel much better and more solid than old ones I have on my first gen Big Mouth bike rack. I wanted to replace them because the metal parts all rusted.


Original part from Thule to replace one on a bike rack that we are rehabilitating


The web site was easy to use. I wasn’t sure what the parts I needed were called and it was easy to find them on the etrailer site. I opted for economy shipping and my order was at my house in just a couple of days.


I needed this replacement when a tree fell on my roof rack and snapped this strap. I have no worries about the durability under normal circumstances haha.


Works perfectly well to replace the ones lost on my OEM Honda Odyssey bike rack


The wheel strap assemblies work great. Exactly as described in the pictures. Shipping was fast. I will definitely buy from eTrailer again.


Got original replacement parts for Thule bicycle roof rack quickly.


Exactly the part I needed to replace a lost wheel strap on my bike rack. Quick shipment and delivery, easy peasy ;)
