Video Transcript for Review of Yakima Replacement Stainless Steel Bike Carrier Skewer - Y8880080

Hi there. I'm Michael with Today, we're going to take a quick look at this Yakima replacement bike carrier skewer. This is a nine millimeter stainless steel skewer that will replace a lost or damaged skewer. Can also work to switch out if you have a plastic skewer that you don't necessarily like as much, you would prefer the stainless steel option. This is gonna do a great job for you.

It's a Yakima product so you can trust it's gonna work with your Yakima bike carriers. This is specifically designed for the Yakima Sprocketrocket, as well as the Forklift and the Sidewinder roof-mounted bike carriers. So if you have any of those, you can trust this is gonna fit right in place of the original. You're not going to have to worry about compatibility issues or anything like that. This will secure your bike to the roof rack and your roof rack to the crossbars.

It's going to be nice and secure and steady for you. It does use the same key system core to lock in place and that core can be changed out to match your other Yakima locks so that they're all keyed alike but it does come with these two keys from the manufacturer, so, if you do want to switch out that core, you can do that separately. It's also going to have this integrated adjustment knob so that you can easily tighten and loosen with just one hand to make sure that everything is going to fit nice and snug there and be attached for you. So, very easy to get this put in place and then close that up when you lock it so everything is going to be secure for you. So if you are needing to replace your skewer, whether, or just upgrading to the stainless steel option, or if your original has become lost or damaged, this is going to be the Yakima product that you need.

So that's going to complete our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with Thanks for watching..

I've had my roof top Yakima Forklift bike mount for quite a long time. Well, last month I was driving on a
"washboard" dirt/gravel road and the skewer head of my Forklift mount fell off without me noticing it and was lost. I was pretty bummed because I figured that it would be impossible to find a replacement for a rack I've had for at least 10-15 years. Well, "Lo and behold", I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it for sale on etrailer's website!
I received it today and it also included a lock and key which I really didn't expect because nowhere in the description did it say a lock and key was included (unless I misread the description).
So, needless to say, I'm extremely pleased with etrailer and would recommend them to anyone and everyone.

Product still working great!

After 5 years of service, my skewer on my Yakima Forklift bike carrier started to malfunction. What I loved about the stainless steel skewer, was the locking mech offers greater security for my expensive road bike and the ease of operation which makes mounting my bike on the top of my car quick and convenient. I was worried that when I had to replace the original skewer, I wouldn't be able to find the same OEM one.

I was surprised to find the same exact Yakima stainless steel bike skewer was still available at The part was shipped immediately and etrailer's detailed tracking info was second to none. After placing my order, I received a follow up email from George in sales and the same day the product was delivered, I received a follow up email from Carol. No matter the amount of purchase, is totally committed to making sure their customers are happy from start to finish. First class customer service! Thanks etrailer.


I have a basic Yakima lock that just didn’t work, I have one of these on one rack and decided to change the basic lock. Works great by letting you adjust the tension based on the type of fork and the cover keeps it all clean..

Still working great

Fit perfectly and is stronger than the original skewer.


Exactly what I needed. Had difficulty finding this elsewhere. Arrived very quickly.


This is the original Yakima skewer and some bike carriers are now being shipped with a lower cost type that has a plastic handle. I ordered two bike carriers and ended up with one of each type. I found the newer model with plastic handle difficult to operate and it resulted in a bike falling off the car. I am glad that e-trailer provides the option to buy this model as I have never had an issue with it.


I bought this to replace a skewer that was not secure while driving. We have the ForkLift model. I like this one more than the old one because it screws is in easier. The old Yakima skewer had a very strange adjustment mechanism. The item came very quickly from eTrailer and I would buy from this business again.


This skewer is very easy to use. Holds bike forks securely. Used frequently at highway speeds.


Easy order process. quick delivery. impeccable product that i could not find anywhere else. good price. Highly recommend


Product as described: brand new Yakima skewer/lock body


Overall, best company for customer service and expertise.


Exactly what I wanted, fast shipping, no hassles, will purchase from etrailer again


Needed to buy a replacement skewer as mine was stolen. I'm totally satisfied with the original and I'm the replacement is just as nice. Great product and I can't recommend it enough.


This is a superlative replacement skewer. It is easy to adjust and should last a long time.


Looked high and low for these and yall had them. Thank you for the fast and quick service!


Fast and speedy service.


Haven't used it yet, but I know it is just what I need.
Prompt service is great.

Exactly as expected, a perfect replacement for the original.
