This replacement cradle kit includes a full cradle for securing one bike plus three rubber straps for your Yakima DoubleDown, HighLite, or KingPin hitch-mounted bike carrier.


Fixed the problem I had with my Yakima rear hitch rack. Fast delivery and great communication.


I originally ordered a different brand but when it became apparent they weren’t in stock and would not arrive in time for our vacation, Nick helped me change my order to the Yakima cradles and made sure they were shipped out the next day. Nick was extremely helpful and even gave me his personal phone # to call in case I had any problems. The cradles fit my old X-port rack perfectly , I had used hose clamps to prevent the original cradles from sliding around on the rack but the Yakima cradles seem to lock in place (I kept the hose clamps on just for extra security)

A year later and I am still happy with my purchase. We used the rack with the new cradles and straps extensively during our vacation and have continued using them on a regular basis over the last year. Even during this Coronavirus pandemic the hitch is on our car to use when we need to get out for some fresh air. This is not my 1st purchase from etrailer and I have always been satisfied with the products and service.

While the product didn't fit my bike rack as I had hoped the customer service was above and beyond any I have experienced. I received an immediate confirmation after placing my order on a Sunday evening. I also received multiple (not an overbearing number) emails providing me with status updates. We were able to retrofit the cradles to my bike rack and the product was of high quality but their customer service was EXCELLENT!


Etrailer processing of my order was impressive.Bike cradle for Yakima rack came as advertised. Description video was very helpful.


Great replacement parts for my Yakima bike rack.
Service and delivery time was fantastic and I received my order earlier than expected. I will certainly order from again.


Excellent product, excellent service and tracking information.


Good quality. Used as a replacement for XPort Slipstream Dual Reciever Bike rack with 1.25 inch bike rack support tubes.


Fits perfectly, just like original equipment, can’t wait to use it tomorrow when we leave for vacation. Don’t go cheap on products for your bike rack. Always protect your investment. Will use again!!


I appreciate the follow up on my order. I also received my order timely. Very appreciative!!!


Exactly what I needed when I couldn’t find the part anyplace else although I did have to call Yakima directly to get the correct part number.


Great , prompt & professional service. items were exactly what i needed to fix my Yakima double down. Loved the fact they personally called to explain order could be delayed due to backorders....received Notification a day or two later that product had shipped. Great job! Will fo business here again!


These replacement Yakima kits performed exactly as I hoped they would. The great customer service and fast shipping were awesome as well!


Parts arrived in less than a week with standard shipping. Parts were exactly as advertised and fit perfectly.

  • What Size Diameter Tubes Does the Replacement Cradle Set Y8890177 Fit?
    The Replacement Cradle Set # Y8890177 works with tubes 1-1/4" in diameter, so this will work on your Yakima rack that you've specified has 1-1/4" tubes. For reference, it's likely that you have a Yakima DoubleDown rack similar to the DoubleDown 4, which has 1-1/4" diameter tubes (it also comes in 2 bike or 5 bike configurations).

  • Are there Replacement Cradles Available for the Yakima BuckHorn 4
    I am happy to inform you that we still have replacement cradles for the Yakima BuckHorn 4. It is the Replacement Cradle Set for Yakima DoubleDown Hitch Mounted Bike Carriers, part # Y8890177. These were made for the DoubleDown and HighLite bike racks, but it will work for the BuckHorn as well. I've linked to a video review of this below.

  • Replacement Cradle Assembly for Yakima DoubleDown Ace Bike Racks
    The Replacement SuperCush Anti-Sway Cradle # 8880598 is not a confirmed fit for the Yakima DoubleDown Ace bike racks but we do have the replacement that fits. It is # Y8890177 and is one complete cradle assembly.

  • What Replacement Cradles Do I Need for My Yakima KingPin 4 Bike Rack?
    I have a great solution for you. I confirmed with my contact at Yakima that the Replacement Cradle for Yakima HangOut or KingJoe Trunk Mounted Bike Rack - Qty 1 # Y8890153 will not fit your Yakima Kingpin 4. However, Yakima did confirm that the Replacement Cradle Set for Yakima DoubleDown Hitch Mounted Bike Carriers # Y8890177 is the correct replacements you need.

  • Replacement Cradles for the Yakima Ridgeback
    I have a solution for you, but the Replacement Cradle Set for Yakima DoubleDown Hitch Mounted Bike Carriers # Y8890177 is only designed to work with hanging racks with 1-1/4" diameter arm tubes; the Yakima Ridgeback # Y02458 has 1-1/8" arms. The replacement cradles that fit the Yakima Ridgeback are the Replacement SuperCush Cradles # 8880597 which are the original ratcheting style cradles that came with the Yakima Ridgeback models produced after 2016. If you have an older model Ridgeback,...

  • Bike Rack Cradles Compatible with 1 Inch Diameter Bar
    I reached out to my tech contact at Yakima and all their bike rack bars that the cradles fit on are 1-1/4 inches so the cradle # Y8890177 will not work with a 1 inch diameter bar. The good news is if you have a Yakima rack, this will fit. On the flip side, if you want 1 inch diameter compatible cradles we do have one! For 1 inch diameter bars I recommend the Replacement Anti-Sway Cradle and Standard Cradle for Hollywood Racks Bike Carrier with 1" Arms # HR745AS. I've attached a video...

  • What Diameter Frame Cradles Does Thule Apex XT Bike Rack Use
    The arms of the Thule Apex XT 4 part # TH9025XT are 1-1/4 inch in diameter. Yakima's replacement frame cradles like part # Y8890177 are designed to fit this size so these would if you were wanting to go with a more standard cradle setup that uses rubber straps instead.

  • Availability Of Replacement Hitch Lock For Yakima BuckHorn Bike Rack
    I have another option for you, but the Replacement Cable Lock # 8880572 you were looking at is only confirmed to fit the Yakima Fullback bike racks. Instead I recommend the Yakima HitchLock for Yakima Hitch Mounted Bike Racks # Y07235 which is confirmed to fit the Yakima BuckHorn Elite Bike Racks. This is the only version of the BuckHorn bike racks that has a replacement lock available. For the other component it sounds like you are asking about a replacement cradle. If that is the case...

  • What is the Diameter of the Yakima Ridgeback Top Tube Diameter?
    The Yakima Replacement SuperCush Anti-Sway Cradle and ZipStrips # 8880598 that you mentioned, work with 1-1/8 inch arms, such as the Yakima RidgeBack # Y02458. If you have an Inno rack with arms that measure 1-1/8 inch then they could potentially work for you. There are also replacements for 1 inch arms from Hollywood Racks # HR740-P and 1-1/4 inch arms from Yakima # Y8890177.

  • Are There Replacement Cradles for a Yakima DoubleDown?
    The Replacement SuperCush Cradle, # 8880597, will not work with a Yakima DoubleDown, because the SuperCush works with 1-1/8" diameter rack arms. The DoubleDown uses replacements that are 1-1/4", such as # Y8890177. There are replacement cradles from other manufacturers that also fit arms up to 1-1/4" such as the Hollywood # HR750-P, but for the best fit for the rack, I recommend using Yakima replacements on your Yakima rack. If the cradles are becoming too difficult to work with, you could...
