Video Transcript for Thule Hitch Bike Racks 853-7002 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the replacement wheel strap for the Thule T2 hitch-mounted bike racks. This part number comes with one strap. It's going to fit the Thule T2 bike racks, part number TH916 and 917. This end right here, this is the end of the strap that goes into the wheel tray housing. The other end feeds through the ratcheting side of the tray. Let's take a look at some of the dimensions real quick, starting with the overall length. Measuring edge to edge, it's going to give us a measurement of about 11-1/2".

Just the rigid area, so from this point here to the end of the strap, is about 8-1/2". Side to side it's going to give us a width of 13/16". Right here it's got the indention. It's just a nice, easy-to-grip area. That way when you're placing it over the wheel, place it through the ratcheting mechanism. You can grab that, pull it tight, and then finish the tightening process with the ratcheting portion of the wheel tray.

That's going to do it for today's look at the replacement wheel strap for the Thule T2 hitch-mounted bike racks.

I had the wheel straps for my Thule bike rack stolen and needed replacements. I have purchased other items from etrailer with great results and decided to buy their product offered to fit my bike rack. It was a easy purchase, super fast shipping and they worked great. A+

We have a Thule bike rack that is a few years old and wanted to get some spare straps that lock the wheels in. etrailer.com made it very easy to find our model and a list of parts for it. They were very easy to order from and our shipment was received quickly. First time ordering but won't be the last!!

Etrailer spent time to research and locate the precise product for my older platform style bike carrier. With so many varieties and styles of hitch mounted bike carriers, it was no small task. Thank you!

No matter how hard I try to keep these straps together and in the same place inside my truck (I have a 2-bike Thule carrier that I leave attached to the truck) they seem to migrate to parts unknown. That's why I ordered a spare. So far these straps have held up. It's not the quality of the strap but the fact that I don't want to lose one on a bike trip. P.S. I have found very few retailers who carry these accessories and am thankful that etrailer.com does. I've purchased bike rack parts, and kayak rack parts. My go-to place.


Comments
Excellent replacement part for my bike rack. I have ordered parts before and eTrailer.com always has what I need. Parts are OEM, holding up well.

This replacement strap fits the original Sportsworks hitch-mounted bike rack that morphed into the Thule T2. The rack itself is expensive but well worth the money; a lockable, strong rack that doesn't wobble. The straps don't like the Florida sun so plan on replacing every three or four years. The strap holds down the rear wheel but the real security is on the front wheel. I've had the rack for more than ten years and never had a problem at freeway speeds or on rough roads.

Still works well, doesnt show sun or heat damage

Just what I needed. Seems to me if I'm going to have any trouble with the incredible Thule T2 bike rack, I'll probably lose one or two of these straps, and then what? This was easy to order two spares from etrailer. Their price plus S&H was the most reasonable. Only reason for 4 and not 5 stars was that the order (sent USPS) seemed a little slow for the S&H cost. USPS is not known for speed, but the order did still arrive in about 5 business days.

I have a Thule T2 hitch mounted bike rack and misplaced the strap for the rear wheel lock down. I could not find a replacement strap at any LBS. I found this replacement part on the etrailer.com WEB site. The order was delivered on time and the strap was just what I needed to replace the misplaced (lost) part.

A main requirement if you own a Thule hitch bike rack, for those who do, you know what I mean. They seam to grow legs and walk off, or...maybe I leave them on the rack and drive off!!! Either way, I order 4 from etrailer, immediately received a confirmation email of my order. Then very quickly received the second email my order was shipped. My kind of Internet shopping. Product arrived USPS soon after. Great experience. Thanks.

It took my a while for me to find this because I have an older model Sportworks tray bike carrier. I come to find out its the same as the Thule T2 carrier. The straps fit perfectly in my carrier. The ordering process was painless and it arrived as scheduled as per the tracking information. Solid in all areas.

Just bought this for a spare part. I've had the bike rack for 12 years and the original parts look fine but this looks like the only part that would ever wear out which is the reason I bought it. I bought the Thule rack from etrailer about 10 years ago and a few other things over the years and would recommend them to anyone. They have an easy to navigate site and their shipping and prices are very good.

My original straps finally wore out after almost 18 years. So I called Thule to order replacements. Unfortunately Thule informed me they didn’t have any more of the straps I needed. I looked around the internet and found this company. The straps were marked up almost 1.5x the price that Thule had them listed for, but, as we know, Thule told me they were out. So... I took a chance here and bought from this company. The product arrived very quickly, and while it is not OEM, they both fit very well. I give this company an A plus, and well, beggars can’t be choosers so I have to give them a pass on the price increase, Even though I hate to do that. They were my only option, and they eere Worth the extra cost. Sorry I don’t have a pic.

Got my order fast and it worked as I'd hoped. My replacement parts fixed my bike racks issues. Now it is like new again. Thanks heaps!

I ordered direct from Thule first and was sent the wrong items. I surfed the web and found etrailer and was impressed by the nice descriptions, pictures and best of all actual measurement of the straps I was looking for. Ordered and receive very promptly the exact parts I needed. They are the go to on-line store for trailer and rack parts for me.

  • Replacement Tire Strap for Sports Works Platform Bike Rack
    I am not familiar with the Sports Works bike racks, but I recommend measuring your wheel strap to see if the Thule Replacement Wheel Strap # 853-7002 has matching dimensions. The Replacement Strap # 853-7002 is 11-1/2 inches long by 13/16 inch wide. I have attached a picture with these measurements on it for you. I cannot guarantee that they thread patterns will be the same. If you could send me a picture and the measurements of your strap, I will be happy to see if we have the correct...

  • Replacement Tire Strap for Sportrack Hitch Mounted Platform Style Bike Rack
    I spoke with my contact at SportRack and if you need a replacement strap for your SportRack Super EZ Platform-Style 2 Bike Carrier, SR2901XT, you will need part # 853-6512. Although the Replacement Ratcheting Wheel Strap, # 853-6512, and the Replacement Wheel Strap for Thule T2 Hitch Mounted Bike Racks, # 853-7002, looks fairly similar, the # 853-7002 has not be tested for use on the SportRack carrier so we can not guarantee that it will work.

  • Solution for Needing Rear Strap for Thule T2 Pro Bike Rack
    I checked with Thule and the only way to replace the strap of the Thule T2 pro is to replace the entire cradle with the part # 7521682001. They do not offer the strap by itself. The strap you mentioned does not fit your bike.

  • Replacement Strap and Rear Wheel Cradle for a Thule T2 Bike Rack
    You will need to replace the whole rear wheel cradle since the ratchet part is fixed to the wheel cradle. The original rear wheel cradle was replaced with a version that will now also accommodate fat tire bikes (but it still fits the T2 bike rack). It is # 7521568001. The strap is included as well.

  • Replacement Key for Thule Bike Rack
    We can help you with replacement keys for your Thule bike rack. Thule products use coded lock cores and the number code on your lock will tell you which key to order. Please refer to the linked photo that illustrates a lock core. You will use partial part number THKEY and add to it the code from your lock. In the photo example that shows lock code N030 you would then order part # THKEYN030. Since keys are sold individually you might want to order a couple so you have a spare. In case...

  • Replacement Strap for Thule Bike Rack
    I spoke with my contact at Thule and in order to try and determine exactly what model bike rack that you have, it would be best if you could provide us with a picture of the rack. Two products that you may want to take a look at are Replacement Strap, # 852-3006-001, and Replacement Anti-Sway Cage, # 853-7758. Both of these pieces were used on hitch mounted bike racks so I would compare these to the ones currently on your bike rack. If we still don't have a match, please send me a...
