Video Transcript for Yakima Bike Racks Wheel Strap Replacement Review

Hi everyone, it's Evangeline here at etrailer. And today we are looking at our Yakima Replacement Straps for Yakima Bike Racks here at etrailer. So this works as a replacement strap for your Yakima Bike Racks, like the HoldUp, which we have here, as well as the HighSpeed or the HighRoad, or if you need an upgrade to your bike racks, like the ForkLift or the FrontLoader or the TwoTimer, this is a longer strap that will upgrade to that system. Here we have our old strap on our Yakima HoldUp Bike Rack. So I'm gonna lead you through the process of how to replace these straps. So first you're gonna turn it over and you're gonna see a tab right over there.

So you're gonna get a flat head screwdriver and just pry that tab down. So using your screwdriver, just push that tab down, so that it fits inside of the bike rack cradle, and then push the strap all the way through. And then get your replacement strap and just feed it through your bike's cradle. Pull it all the way up and then put it into place here with our lever. And that's it for the replacement.

The strap itself is 12 and a quarter inches long. So for some bike racks, this is the exact replacement straps. Other bike racks actually have an original, shorter strap. So if you need a little extra length, you're gonna get 12 and a quarter inches of it. Here we have the old ratcheting strap on our Yakima HoldUp Bike Rack.

So it's already suffered a little bit of wear and tear over the years. It still works well, but you can see why we wanted to replace it. Now, even though we've had the original strap for a couple years, you can see how there actually isn't that much of a difference when it comes to the flexibility of the strap. It has developed a little bit of a curve for being in position for so long, but it's nice to know that most straps don't need replacing unless you lose them or really, really damage it. So my thoughts about this replacement strap is that it works really well in terms of replacing your old straps.

The whole process itself is very simple, since you just need to push that tab right in there and it slides right through. So if you have the older bike racks, which have the shorter straps, I highly recommend getting this just to upgrade your system. And if you have just the regular, like let's say, HoldUp, HighRoad, HighSpeed Bike Rack that already comes with a strap that is this length. It might not be a bad idea just to pick one up as an extra to keep on hand, just in case this ever needs replacing. And that was a look here at our Yakima Replacement Straps for Yakima Bike Racks here at etrailer. My name is Evangeline and I hope you enjoyed the journey..

Replaces or upgrades the ratcheting strap on your Yakima bike rack. Measures 12-1/4" long strap.


Could not find a replacement wheel strap anywhere local. First time using etrailer and was very satisfied with the delivery. Order arrived faster than expected and was the exact part I needed. It should hold up as long as I don’t drive into the carport with my bike on the roof.


This is just the product I needed for my Yakima Forklift rooftop fork mount rack. The stock strap was too short to accommodate the wheels/tires on my new 29" mountain bike. These longer straps are perfect. They are genuine Yakima parts.


etrailer is one of the few places with this longer strap for my Yakima Front Loader. Now I can secure the 650B 2.8" back tire of my Specialized Fuse no problem!


They are too short for my fat tire bike. I thought they would be longer.

You mentioned that the strap was not long enough for your fat bike tires. I am happy to help and I wanted to see if you know the name of the bike rack that you have?

It is a Yakima bike rack. The straps were the correct configuration just to short.

Sometimes the straps can differ amongst different Yakima racks.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 04/12/2022


I've been doing business with them for a few years now and etrailer is consistently on-target with their pricing, shipping and customer service.


The strap was perfect! You guys had the best price and as always great service. Wish the USPS took notes from you! ;). Got my rack back up and running and now on to more adventures!


A perfect fit and replacement part


worked great on the Yakima universal mounts- can accommodate mtn bike tires.


All that I needed to replace the wheel strap for my old Yakima bike rack. Perfect!


I ordered these straps just based on them visually looking like what my Yakima Bike Rack's straps look like, and happily they fit like a glove!


The Yakima replacement wheel strap came on time and fit my bike rack.


Great customer service for getting the right part.


Pretty hard to get this wrong. It is a replacement strap for Yakima bike racks, but a little longer than stock. It enabled me to use my frontloaders with the newer range of 2.8 to 3 inch plus tires on mountain bikes, without letting air out of rear tire to get strap secured.


Great service and communication.


Arrived as expected.


Exactly as I needed!! Quick shipping great prices


Just like new!


The product was advertised as being 2 1/2 inches longer than the original, but it turns out that they are exactly the same as the original. I am still looking for straps that are longer.

Yakima offers two versions of this part, # Y8880229
Replacement Wheel Strap for Yakima Bike Racks
which is 12-1/4 inches long or # 8880191
Replacement Wheel Strap for Yakima Frontloader Bike Carrier
which is 9-7/8 inches long.

Straps fit perfect to replace 2 that I broke trying to knock a tree down with my bike rack attached to my camper...ha!


Greg with etrailer was very helpful. They had the replacement part I couldn't find anywhere else and rushed the delivery. I had it within 2 days. Great service, Thanks.


Exactly what I need to replace the rear wheel strap that I broke!
Easy to install too!!


I need a much longer strap than this one. Kept it because the price was okay (it is the size of my original but was looking for longer for mu fat tire bikes).


Great service!!! Thanks so much!!!


Product fits perfectly with our Yakima bike racks and has extra room for the thicker tires on our kids bikes.

It still works fine, thanks.
