Fair price, and items came earlier than promised, which was nice. Glad Etrailer had them. One of these came with my Thule ski racks, but I forgot where I put it by the end of ski season, so I ordered two more. Luckily, I found the original one, so now I have one in the glove compartment, one in the tool chest and one where the ski racks are stored ! They're unique, so it would have been easier if Thule had included two originally, but that's them.

I bought this tiny wrench for my Thule rack a year ago and e trailer had it available for a good price. They shipped quick as well. The day it arrived, I found my old wrench, but now I can’t find either so I will probably order again .

etrailer.com has the best customer service! The part I needed, I couldn’t find on their site. But one of the reps found it for me and had it in the mail next day. I only needed the special wrench to remove my snowboard rack from my jeep. Joshua K. and George J. were both extremely helpful in getting the wrench shipped to me. I was able to remove the racks and store them away until winter! Thank you very much!

I misplaced the secure wrench for my ski rack during a move. I was so happy to find it available from trailer! I ordered two and received them within days. Great response time!

Easy to use website, picture is exactly what you get, I requested quicker shipping because we were leaving out of town and I needed to get them off before our road trip out of state and they actually got here a few days before their estimated delivery date. Shipping was a bit pricey but I guess that's what you pay for when you lose the original wrench!! Ouch!


Comments
It’s been performing perfectly, especially since I’m not losing it anymore.

This was the perfect tool! I picked up a pair of Thule ski racks from a local buying group but couldn't install them. I found etrailer and this tool. They shipped it fast and it was exactly as advertised. Very satisfied!


Comments
Wow, thanks for reaching out. I wasnt expecting a follow up. Yes, I love the product. In fact, Ive loaned my roof rack to a friend numerous times and the tool continues to work flawlessly. Again, I appreciate you reaching out and checking up. Happy Holidays to you!

Exactly what I needed. There is no substitute as it's a security hex-type key. Standard hex keys won't work.


Comments
I wouldnt leave home w/o my Thule Hex. Still very pleased.

I had lost my original tool to help remove and put on my Thule ski rack. I got a new car and didn't want to buy a new rack so I ordered a new one from etrailer. Works perfectly and got to me quickly. Would recommend and may use again if I lose it again!

The product--the key that is the only one that can unlock Thule ski racks from the main car rack-- worked as expected. It came fairly quickly and the price was right. In fact, not only did I not find it cheaper anyplace else...I didn't even FIND it anyplace else!
