Video Transcript for Review of Yakima Replacement Parts - Chain-Style Rubber Bike Straps - 8890221

Today, we'll be taking a quick look at the replacement chain straps for Yakima bike carriers. These are going to fit your older style Yakima carriers. It's going to be a direct replacement for those rubber chain-style straps. They're still going to have a little bit of stretch that allows you to get your bike mounted up and stay secure on your Yakima rack. We'll get three straps in one, or three straps total. Those are each going to have the same measurements, which'll be about nine inches long from the very end to the very top.

The distance from that first hole to our handle portion, that's about eight inches from the center of that hole. The diameter of each of the mounting holes is about half an inch. Holding that up so you can see it there. Half an inch for the diameter. The outermost portion of our strap measures about an inch and a quarter wide.

And they're about a quarter of an inch thick.This is going to fit the Yakima BigHorn, the BuckHorn Elite, and the Yakima SuperJoe and KingJoe series trunk-mount racks. This'll get you back out on the road enjoying your Yakima rack and keeping all of your bikes secure at all those points for the cradles. If you need any other replacement parts for your Yakima bike rack, check out etrailer.com. We have a lot of options available for any of your replacement part needs. That's going to do it for our look at the replacement chain straps for Yakima bike carriers..

Replacement Chain Straps for Yakima Bike Carriers - 8890221

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (196 Customer Reviews)


by:

When Yakima discontinued my bike rack, they also discontinued supplying the straps. Luckily, etrailer still had the straps in stock so I didn't have to go without or ad lib replacements just to keep using the rack.

The saddles I ordered did not work. I can’t use the bike rack.


Comments
I am happy to help you with the chains straps. Can you tell me the model name of the bike rack that you have?
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 02/16/2022
Comments
It is a Yakama 4 bike hitch rack.
-- comment by: James - 02/16/2022
Comments
Would it be possible to send a picture of the bike rack? Yakima has made several different 4 bike carriers in the past.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 02/16/2022
Comments
I am in Arizona for the winter the rack is in Illinois. I did previously send you all pictures of the rack and the saddles. I will check to see if I still have the pictures.
-- comment by: James - 02/16/2022
Comments
I did hear back from Yakima who believes that you have the double down 4 model 8002424. Which means that the chain straps should have worked for you. Can you tell me in more detail what happened when you tried to use them?
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 02/16/2022
Comments
Jenny, the straps did work. The bike saddles which hold the bike did not work. Their diameter was to small. I could not het them on the tube, therefore I could not mount the bike.
-- comment by: James - 02/16/2022
Comments
The diameter of the tube on your rack should be 1.25 inches so I would measure the inner diameter of the hole in the cradle and see if it is close. Also sometimes using soapy water will help slide the cradles on - when it dries it is easy to wipe off.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 02/16/2022

by:

Perfect fit, thank you etrailer.com! Now I can get 10 more years out of this bike rack!

Still working like a charm!!
Leon - 08/06/2021

by:

This replacement strap was about 4-6" shorter than the Yakima part I needed to stretch all the way over the bike forks. I'll need to figure out a work-around.


Comments
You mentioned that the straps were 4 to 6 inches shorter than the strap you needed. I wanted to ask you a few follow up questions. Do you know the model name of the bike rack that you have? How long is the strap that you want to replace?
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 02/01/2022
Comments
Yes, it is the Yakima HangOver 6-Bike Hitch Rack. Here are pictures of the rack and the straps that are used. Im not near the rack right now, but I can get the measurements later this evening.
-- comment by: Jeff - 02/01/2022
Comments
Great! - You do not need to measure as knowing the model is very helpful. I do have one more question though. Was your Hang 6 bought before or after August 2020?
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 02/01/2022
Comments
Before August 2020.
-- comment by: Jeff - 02/01/2022
Comments
It turns out that I do not have the strap on our site currently. I am having it added and once it is I can let you know the part number and lead time. The strap for models made before August 2020 are different then the straps made after 2020

The part number on our site is part # Y89KR
Replacement Cradle with Strap for Yakima HangOver Bike Rack
$30.13
. It includes both the cradle and the Y strap. For the pre-August 2020 models the strap is not sold separately from the cradle.

by:

Excellent straps. I use them to secure our bikes in the bed of the pickup. Although intended specifically for a Yakima rack, their design lends itself to more universal applications. The shipping from etrailer.com was very prompt, and overall I was very pleased with my experience. Therefore I will shop again from etrailer.com in the future.



by:

Straps were the same as originally purchased with my Yakima carrier. Great quality, very quick turnaround



by:

STRONG!! We use our bike rack a lot and these last forever. Our rack is stored in the garage, as with anything, if these are left out in the sun and weather, you might not get as much use.



by:

It was great that I was able to track the order from beginning to end.

The order was executed perfectly.



by:

Whether you need items great or small, etrailer always comes through. They treat all orders with the same great speed and attention.



by:

These are genuine Yakima hold down straps at a great price. Why shop [online] when you can find a better deal at etrailer. That's right, even with shipping etrailer had a better price. And NO I was not paid to write this. I've noticed over the last year or so that [online] is not always a better deal, shop around.



by:

These original replacement parts keep my Yakima bike rack looking and working like new. I have found that etrailer.com consistently has the parts I need to keep my equipment looking and working like new. Five star equipment and service!



by:

Great replacement straps at a great pri ce!

Quick delivery very pleased with service

fast easy, and many choices. simple and good!!!



by:

It is what they describe on the web site, no disappointment, satisfied with the purchase



by:

Prompt delivery and best price availabl e.



by:

Good product, for an older bike rack that is still functional and great!



by:

Worked perfectly as replacement straps for my bike rack!



by:

The straps work great, and have given us more use from the bike carrier than we had expected. Used them to haul my bike cross country to San Diego earlier this year - strong and sturdy all the way.



by:

Super fast shipping!



by:

It was wonderful to get the replacement parts we needed. Our bike rack is used frequently and for long distances. We know our bikes are secure on the rack.



by:

Great quality and reasonable price. Straps are perfect replacement or originals.



by:

Beware that these replacement straps are quite a bit shorter than the originals, at least on my rack. If you can't get your present straps to fit in the first 6 holes, these are probably too short, as you won't have enough to grip while trying to put them around your bike. Unfortunately, according to Yakima, they have discontinued the longer straps. If you have small tubes on your bike, they may work. My bikes are probably slightly oversize, but certainly not large tubes.



by:

Quality appears to be ok but the fit was really tight getting straps on bike mount cradle pegs unfortunately.
Would be better if holes in straps were a little along instead of round.



by:

Excellent product arrived earlier than expected.

  • Replacement Cradle Strap Recommendation for a Rhode Gear Super Shuttle
    Yakima used to own the Rhode Gear line of bike racks so the # 8890221 should work well as a replacement strap based on that and the measurements of the strap. This strap is 9 inches long and has holes that are 1/2 inch wide. I attached a picture that shows the dimensions of the strap as well. The holes will be slightly smaller but will still stretch to fit.

  • Availability of Replacement Straps for Rhode Gear Bike Rack
    I recommend taking a look at the Yakima Replacement Rubber Chain Straps # 8890221. This replacement strap is not specifically designed for Rhode Gear Racks, however Yakima used to actually own Rhode Gear so there's a good chance these will work well. There is no longer a direct replacement strap available for the Rhode Gear bike racks. In order to see if this will work, I recommend taking a couple quick measurements on your existing strap. This replacement measures 9 inches from end to...

    We do have the replacement rubber straps for your Yakima BigHorn Bike Rack with part # 8890221, however the replacement cradles are no longer manufactured by Yakima. Since this particular rack is no longer in production, your best option is really going to be with a new rack if your existing cradles are damaged. For a hanging-style rack similar to the BigHorn I recommend taking a look at the Yakima RidgeBack 4 Bike Rack # Y02458. This rack features anti-sway cradles to provide excellent...

  • Attaching the Yakima Bike Rack Cradle Strap to a Cradle
    To attach the strap, # 8890221, to a cradle on a Yakima bike rack, start with the round end of the strap. The cradle will have mounting mounts for the strap located on the forward and rearward parts of the cradle. Start the hole at the end around one of the mounting points on the cradle and then pull, very hard, to stretch out the hole and pull the strap onto the mounting point on the cradle. Then, place the bike on the cradles like in the video I have linked. Pull the strap over the frame...

  • Replacement Rubber Cradle Strap for Rhode Gear Spare Tire Mount Bike Rack
    Thank you for providing a photo of the RhodeGear bike cradle strap you are looking to replace. The Yakima replacement rubber strap you were looking at, part # 8890221, is a set of three straps. Overall length tip-to-tip is 9 inches and hole diameter is 1/2 inch. It may be possible that your existing strap has stretched from use; typically rubber-based compounds will stretch from age and wear and will tend to fit more loosely after they have been in service.

  • Replacement Rubber Straps for Rhode Gear Hitch Shuttle
    I have a recommendation for you but the original replacement rubber straps are hard to come by. The brand was acquired by Prorack and dissolved a while back. However, we do have OEM replacement cradles for Rhode Gear Shuttle Racks # RG8890084. This comes with the rubber cradle and fabric hold down straps. If you are looking for a rubber strap, the best option, which is not an exact replacement, is the Yakima Rubber Strap # 8890221. We offer these straps in a set of three.

  • Replacement Straps for a Bike Carrier and Montague Mountain Bike with 4 Inch Tall Frame
    I measured the amount of space from the bottom of a cradle to the strap in the widest position and on # HR750-P it was only 2-3/4 inches unstretched so it would not work with a 4 inch tall frame. Straps # 8890221 are 9 inches long so you are looking at approximately 4-1/2 inches of possible space, depending on the cradle, minus about 1/2 inch for the material at the ends of the straps and that takes it down to approximately 4 inches, loner when stretched. I believe this set is going to...

    The Yakima Replacement Cradle, # Y8890158, comes with a set of cradles for 1 bike. You get two cradles, one with the anti sway cradle and one cradle without the anti sway bracket. To use these cradles you would need two packages of the Replacement Rubber Straps, # 8890221, because the anti sway would use a rubber strap as well. I went out to the warehouse and pulled one of the two remaining LittleJoe bike racks that we have, this rack is being discontinued, and a cradle set and found that...

    The best option for you, since there are no direct replacements available, is likely going to be the replacement rubber chain straps from Yakima # 8890221, though you could also take a look at the straps from Thule # 852-3006-001 and determine what would work best for your rack.

Since there are not confirmed fit replacement parts available, finding the best replacement strap can be hit or miss. We know the Thule strap did not work well for your bike rack, so if you'd like to try another strap...
