This is a straight replacement for the original - the genuine OEM part, not a copy made of a cheaper material. I was surprised to be able to find it because my bike rack is ~20 yrs old. Thank you.



by:

Exactly the part I needed for my THULE 990XT bike rack.



by:

It is the exact part lost from my Thule 990XT Doubletrack Bike Rack. Easy install. I purchased the barrel nut and it fits this lever and my remaining bolt perfectly.



by:

This replacement tray for our Thule Doubletrack hitch rack is a perfect fit and looks identical to the lost original. Also got the new lever (853-3508), barrel nut (853-0446), and carriage bolt (915-066-31). From now on we'll be closing the lever lined up against the rack rails as shown so that it can't accidentally get flipped up and spin itself off in the wind (I'm assuming that's how we lost it, I'd hate to think it was stolen!). Thank you so much etrailer.com for making these out-of-stock Thule rack parts available, and at a fair price! Quick shipping, too!



by:

I ordered some of these levers to replace two of the original ones on my Thule 599 upright carrier (predates the 599xt and 599xtr uprights) when installing the XADAPT2 (which came with only one for the back plate). This lever is easier to clamp down. You don't have make full 360 degree turns as you seek the right clamping pressure like the earlier design. This is especially helpful because the XADAPT2 spacers add enough shim height that the clamp is either too tight or too loose. With the 180 degree turns you can get the right amount of clamping force without risking damage to the Aeroblade bars.



by:

These were perfect replacement for the levers that broke off of the barrel nut on my bike. These make it so much easier to unscrew the nut and adjust the tire mounts on my bike rack. They are high quality and shipped fast. I am so pleased with e-trailer. I will definitely order from them again when the time comes.



by:

Good replacement parts! I bought a used Thule big mouth roof rack that was missing parts and etrailer had just what I needed and was very helpful! The parts seem to be holding up quite well after one year of use too. I will be back if and when I meed more parts!



by:

I needed to order a new wheel tray for my Thule Doubletrack bike rack, and etrailer’s website was an excellent place to do it. Not only did they have everything that I needed, the website had easily accessible info on the related parts (lever, nut, and bolt) that needed to be ordered with it. It shipped out and I received it in the timeframe expected. I will definitely be going back to etrailer when needed.



by:

Received the parts after an incredibly long wait, however, was not due to eTrailer, but to a delay from manufacturer.

ETrailer kept me advised on the shipping status throughout the wait. Good company to work with. Parts were wrapped well and arrived in good shape.

The 4 star rating was because of the long wait. Would have been nice if the web site stated there was a backlog for the part.



by:

Exact part I needed, fair price and very quick shipping. Thank you!

A year later, the little lever is doing great! Also it was very nice that the site contacted me to make sure everything was still working how its supposed to. Thanks guys!



by:

Fits perfectly on the bike carrier.
Shipping
to Qc, Canada took more than twice the time estimated. (Two weeks more)



by:

Delivered as advertised. Helped replace a missing part and get me back on the road hauling two bikes on our Thule hitch rack.



by:

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.



by:

I needed to replace 3 parts on my thule bike rack. The salesperson was very helpful in locating the correct parts. They were delivered promptly. An excellent experience for me.



by:

SO GLAD etrailer.com carried this part! Couldn't get it on the Thule website even though the bike trailer was only a few years old. It fell off at some point when the bolt came loose. This replacement is identical, fit perfectly -
YAY! Thanks, people!!



by:

Bought replacement parts for Thule rack. Very reasonable prices and knowledgeable sales people. Great customer service. I had some mix up on parts needed and they were very helpful. Have used this company a few times.



by:

The replacement parts I ordered for my Thule bike rack were reasonably priced and delivered in a timely manner. Now, if someone steal more parts from my rack, I'll certainly know where to buy them.



by:

I have made several purchases over the last few years from etrailer and each purchase was flawless. I appreciate the website with all the short to the point how- to videos. I have referred the site to many friends who have had the same great experience. Thanks etrailer.



by:

We so appreciate your diligence in making sure we had the right pat!

I'm am currently at a campground in Lake George NY! 68 and sunny! Here's my Thule bike rack in action



by:

I needed this 3-piece part as I lost mine on my recent travels. William B. took very good care of me when I phoned in with questions about how to obtain this part. It came very quickly and I was able to get everything back together. Very happy with this transaction!! Thanks, William B.



by:

The original part fell off of my bike rack so this replacement was perfect!

Thanks etrailer!
