Replacement Molded Strap for Thule Insta-Gater Truck Bed Bike Rack - 853-7056

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (60 Customer Reviews)


Great that it came so fast!!!!!!! Love that.

Little expensive but needed it.

This is my third set=> the rubber just doesn't last. Would recommend looking at a different material.


Better than the original


Great replacement parts for my Insta-Gater. Now I can secure my bike in bed of my truck without worry.
etrailer has the best customer service I have ever experienced.


Thankfully they still make these. The product was just what I needed to get my Tailgaters back in working order.

Theyre still chugging along.

Exactly what I needed to get my Thule Insta-Gater back to working . Original straps lasted 13 years, so no complaints. Super fast shipping!


They had this hard to find part and got it to me quickly.


Parts came on time & as advertised. However the usps destroyed the shipping box they shipped in good thing they did not get damaged or fall out of the box as the box was delivered open. Thanks etrailer !!!


The original straps lasted for six years, but one finally busted. The Insta-Gators are useless without two straps each, so to the rescue. The replacements showed up at my house within 5 days (with std shipping) so my camping trip this weekend is a GO! Thanks!

My Insta-Gators are still working perfectly. Replaced the straps last week, but that was a pre-emptive strike because I saw a few small cracks. These things hold a bike so stable!

I picked up a Thule Insta-Gator from a friend of mine who had lost the original mounting straps to hold the rack against the tailgate. These work like a champ! Mine is the older style rack that has a set up similar to the original T2 racks, and I’m using it on a Nissan Titan.


Very fast shipping, and perfect replacement match.


This is one of only a few sites where I could order replacement straps for my Thule truck bed rack. These are OEM replacement parts. etrailer has lots of Thule parts, quick response time, and fit. Recommend etrailer.


Was online to order a new bike rack for my husband, the rubber straps had dry rotted and came apart, well I saw you can get only the straps, so I ordered them from, got them in and they work perfect, saved me a lot of money, so glad I found your site ! Thanks


The Thule Insta-Gater Truck be bike Rack is awesome. I've used it so long I wore the strap out. I'm so glad trailer had the straps.


I was notified that the items I ordered were shipped the same day I ordered them. I received them 3 days later. The items I ordered were exactly what I needed especially since they were repair parts for my Thule Insta-Gator bike rack. Great service, thanks. I will be willing to deal with them again. No complaints here.


My original Thule Insta-gator trucked bike rack needed new tailgate straps. These look like they will work great. Very fast shipping too.


This part is super easy to change out for my previously broken strap. I now keep the rack inside, so hopefully the straps won't break. Still going strong after a year.


Several times now I have ordered from etrailer and have not been disappointed. Delivered fast. And good products that I just could not locate any where else


Sometimes repairs or replacements are a part of a product. I only needed some replacement plactic parts that had broken for my bike rack. Easy ordering, curteous customer service. Thanks so much.


Product was exactly what I needed! Fast service. Received my order sooner than expected.


Replacement part worked perfectly.


Hard to find part. Thank you etrailer for stocking it.


exact match to the strap on the Thule, i had a simple question about another part and it was answered by email within 30 minutes; excellent customer service. i'll use these folks again!


Delivered a tough to get part quickly & saved me from having to by an entirely new bike rack!


Great replacement strap. Had fantastic follow up on my order and it was delivered sooner than promised. Definitely will use these guys again.


Perfect fit and super fast shipping, even with the cheapest option. I will definitely shop here again!
