The replacement cradle straps fit our bike rack perfectly and were easy to put on. Service was great too.


After an extensive research I decided to go with the Thule Helium 2.0. This rack is extremely light with very pleasing body structure. In addition it has a built in bike lock cable.
I received the rack 3 days after ordering from etrailer and the installation was a piece of cake.
At $379.00 is on the expensive side, however it is super light and it is not an eyesore.
Awesome Product !!!


I have a 15+ year old Thule hitching post bike rack with 1" tubing. One of the cradle straps broke and I've been looking for a replacement. REI couldn't help me. I looked on Amazon but found what I wanted on for The old cradle had an integrated strap (bad design). I bought the 853-7887 cradle and this strap. Worked great. It took a bit of elbow grease and wd-40 to wiggle it into the tubing. But it'll work just fine.


Exactly what I needed for bike rack. Strong rubber strap that easily attached to my bike rack.


Bought these with the Replacement Stay-Put Cradle for Thule Parkway and Roadway Bike Carriers to replace my Bell cradles and straps. These straps are great. They stretch just enough to make it easy to add or remove from the cradle which I do every time I use my bike rack. I remove them when I bike as they aren't attached to the cradle and I don't want them taken while on my bike ride. They secure my bike well and have stayed in great condition. Probably won't have to replace any of them unless I totally abuse them.

straps are still working great. i keep my carrier outside but in the shade and this has helped to keep the straps working like new.

Great to be able to get quality replacement parts for older equipment


Good replacement for origionals which tore in less than a year,so far holding up great after one year.


About a year ago, we purchased a number of replacement parts for our Thule aluminum bike rack. They've all been great. Both anti-sway attachments and straps have held up well, and we've now driven them up and down the US East Coast several times. Very happy with both product and service, and I'd strongly recommend to anyone in the market for replacement parts for their Thule bike rack!

As a quick follow-up, I can confirm that - after another year of use - the replacement parts for our Thule rack continue to hold up great. I literally couldnt be more pleased with the purchase, and know that - if I do ultimately wear out any of the straps or anti-sway attachments - Ill be back for more. Thanks again!

Great service from etrailer! The Thule straps work well.


Very grateful that had these straps for bike rack cradles that were "removed" (i.e. stolen) from our Thule bike rack. etrailer had a full selection of the parts we needed for our specific bike rack model. Easy to navigate, search, and order from the etrailer website. Delivery was as scheduled.


Do you guys even look at this stuff? There aren't tabs on both sides of the cradle for the strap to attach to.Totally useless.

This strap is intended to be used with the Hold Fast or Stay Put cradles like part # 7521513002
Replacement Hold Fast Cradle for Thule Archway and Apex Bike Racks
or part # 853-7887
Replacement Stay-Put Cradle for Thule Parkway and Roadway Bike Carriers
. If you have a cradle like part # 853-5829

Perfect fit for my older Thule carrier. Etrailer is my first stop for bicycle carriers and replacement parts. Exact parts, excellent service and support, good value and fast shipment are four good reasons to use


So far. The replacement straps seem to be working as intended. Thank god for to provide replacement parts for my 5+ year old bike carrier at a reasonable price.


Perfect for the wide bar on my bike. All I had to do is slide it on. Fits great.


Searched high and low looking for replacement parts for my Thule bike rack, until I finally found the parts I needed at etrailer. They immediately started communicating with me on the status of my order right up until the parts were delivered (delivered 3 days early). I would definitely order parts or supplies from trailer next time I need them. Thanks for the great service!!!!


Very fast delivery. Great assistance helping me be sure i was ordering the right item


Received what I ordered quickly and in good condition


These replacement parts for my bike carrier are very high quality, and delivery was quick! I highly recommend both the parts…and Etrailer!


I got the exact replacement parts that I needed for my bike carrier.


Great replacement for the original Thule straps, which wore out after about ten years. These seem to be thicker and more durable, so we are very happy with them!!


We have a Bell two-bike carrier that we like but the Bell cradles rotted and crumbled to pieces after a few years. I had trouble finding any that looked well-made, but finally found the Thule brand at and liked the look of them. I ordered these to go with some replacement Thule cradles and am very happy with them. They are easy to use and seem to hold firmly. I think they are very high quality and recommend them to anyone needed replacement straps for the Thule cradles.

They still look new and are still working great. Still highly recommended.

I was so disappointed when my bike straps failed and panicked - - UNTIL I found and saw that I was able to replace broken parts not only affordably but expeditiously! They did a great job of getting my much needed purchases to me quickly! I will be happy to have these folks on speed-dial or in a bookmark for future assistance!
I bought a dozen replacement straps for my expensive Thule bike rack. The straps didn't last but a year, so I'll be getting more of these, no doubt. Love the bike rack, need the happy to have a source.

so far, so good. not enough riding, however!!!

Great replacement straps for my Thule bike rack.

Every few years the straps will dry rot and tear, so I purchase the necessary amount to replace those that are a few extra to carry as spares.

This is my fourth purchase through e-trailer...and all purchases have been very successful.

It’s been a full year since your last purchased the bicycle straps. We’ve used the bicycle rack extensively throughout Colorado, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan. They remain a great, well priced product.

Good quality and worked


So glad I ordered the replacement straps for the cradles on my Thule bike rack. I probably stretch them too tight to make sure my bicycle is secure on our bumpy dirt roads so having extras in my car in case they break solves that issue. Thanks for carrying them, etrailer!

Same as when I purchased them. Perfect! I use the bike rack constantly & the straps are holding up, especially since i’m Not stretching them to their limit.
