Expert Answers about Cable Locks


  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Bikes With Front Fenders
  • We have some very high-quality bike racks similar to the Kuat Sherpa that will work with bikes that have fenders, but because the Sherpa is a wheel-mounted bike rack, the ratcheting hooks will interfere with the front fenders and you won't be able to mount that type of bike. So instead what you need is a bike rack that is a frame-mounted rack. For a bike rack that will work on a bike with fenders (see accompanying photo) I highly recommend the Saris Freedom 2-Bike Rack # SA4412B, because...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation For Electra Townie E-Bikes With Step-Through Frames
  • For your Electra Townie bikes with step-through frames, the rack I recommend is from Saris: - Saris Freedom Bike Rack # SA4412B The Freedom will work with your Townie because it holds bikes via adjustable cradles that you can position to easily grasp your bike's step-through frames. The rack also has a 60 lb per-bike capacity yet is very light, weighting only 22-1/2 lbs, which means it is going to be a lot easier to handle than any other electric bike rack, most of which weigh at...

  • There is one bike rack I really like for that will work great for your Electra Townie Go! 8i bike, which is from Saris: - Saris Freedom Bike Rack # SA4412B The Freedom has a 60 lb per-bike capacity, which can handle your Townie, and has cradles that you can position at different spots that allow it to grasp your Townie's step-through frame. It also weighs just 22-1/2 lbs so it is extremely lightweight, making it much easier to handle than any other bike rack capable of carrying your...

  • Replacement Lock Core for Thule Vertex 2-Bike Rack 9028
  • The Thule Vertex 2-Bike Rack part TH9028 would require two total lock cores for security which come with the Cable Lock part # TH538XT and Hitch Lock part # THSTL2. If you want to replace both with the same key then you'd need the Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders part # TH450200. If you only want to replace one, you'd could indeed just use the Replacement Lock Cylinder and Premium Key for Thule One-Key Systems part # 1500004217 (Key Code 217) but you'll also need the Thule Change Key...

  • Recommended Cable Lock for the Reese Explore 4 Bike Rack
  • I recommend using the etrailer 10' Long Cable Lock # e98891 to lock your bikes to the Reese Explore 4 Bike Rack for 2" Hitches # 63124. Basically you'll need something that can go through the frames of all 4 bikes and then be secured on a point that isn't removable like the safety chain loop on your trailer hitch. The 10' of cable might seem a little excessive but sometimes it can feel like a puzzle getting the cable routed just right and this will make it easier on where you can route...

  • Does Swagman Dispatch Have Locks For Bikes
  • The only lock that comes with the Swagman Dispatch Bike Rack # S44FR is a hitch lock for the rack itself in the receiver. If you wanted to lock the bikes to the rack you would also need a cable lock such as the etrailer Cable Lock # e98891 or Saris Cable Lock # SA981. There are replacement arms that fit the Dispatch # S44FR which do have locks, the Replacement Locking Long and Short Hooks for Swagman Chinook, Dispatch, G10, or E-Spec Bike Racks # SP428.

There are pros and cons to each so first I'll mention the racks (and accessories that are needed) and then I'll go over the differences. Keep in mind that both have a 60 lb per-bike capacity: - Saris Freedom Bike Rack # SA4412B - Fat Tire Adapter Kit for Saris Freedom Bike Racks # SA4419 OR - Swagman Current Bike Rack # S64678 - Swagman Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Electric,...

  • Will Saris Freedom Bike Rack Work For Aventon Pace 350 Step-Thru Ebikes
  • I took a look at the specs for your Aventon Pace 350 Step-Thru Ebikes, and yes, the Freedom bike rack will work superbly with these bikes; the correct part number for the rack is the following: - Saris Freedom Bike Rack for 2 Bikes # SA4412B The Freedom bike rack has a 60 lb per-bike capacity, and your Aventon bikes weigh 46 lbs so the rack has more than enough capacity; additionally, your bikes have the correct wheelbase size as well as tire size to work with the Freedom.

  • Recommended Lock For Curt Bike Rack & Hitch
  • Manufacturers of hitch accessories such as bike rack and cargo carriers make the threaded bolts and weldnuts in the accessories uniquely threaded so that you cannot use other manufacturer's products. For example the Swagman lock # S64027 will not fit the Curt Premium 4 Bike Rack for 2" Hitches # C18064. To lock the bike rack to the hitch I recommend using Curt Adjustable Cable Lock # C23666. You would just need to route the cable through the bike rack and then through the safety chain...

  • Will a Cable Lock Keep My Bikes Safe or Can Someone Just Cut It Off?
  • Honestly, it would be pretty easy for someone with bolt cutters to cut through the cable lock you mentioned, # e98891. Locks in general are not a guarantee against theft, but a deterrent. If someone is determined to take your personal belongings, a lock is not going to stop them. But, if you have entwined a cable lock through your bikes, a thief will most likely move on to an easier target rather than fiddle with unwrapping your cable lock. If you are looking for a sturdy cable lock,...

  • Can the Hollywood Racks Hitch Pin Lock be Ordered to a Specific Key Number

  • Is the Yakima HandCuff Cable Lock Really Effective?
  • The idea behind the Yakima HandCuff Cable Lock for RidgeBack and SwingDaddy Bike Racks # Y02466 is to deter the theft of your bikes, not to completely eliminate the threat. It might be tempting for someone who is walking by your bike rack to steal it, but they might abandon that feeling when they see the cable lock. Unfortunately, if a thief wanted to steal anything, there is really no absolute deterrent from the crime occurring.

  • Troubleshooting Kuat Transfer Bike Rack that Moves in the Hitch
  • If you check out the test course video I attached for the Kuat Transfer TS02G that shows how stable it is on the road you'll see that the rack is supposed to be pretty stable once the hitch pin is tightened. What is most likely going on is that the hitch pin may not be tight enough to remove all of the movement. The easiest way to fix this is to tighten the hitch pin while you move the rack around in the hitch. This is the easiest way to get all of the movement out of the rack. For...

  • Replacement Hitch Pin for Thule Bike Rack
  • Your Thule bike rack uses a threaded hitch bolt, both for security and to hold the shank of the bike right tight up against the side of the receiver tube to prevent the bike rack from wobbling around. Because it uses a proprietary threaded bolt, you unfortunately wouldn't be able to use the Hollywood Racks Lock and Cable Lock # HRLHPC2 you mentioned as the threads would prevent the hitch pin from working. If you lost the threaded hitch bolt as well as the lock itself, you'd need part...

  • Troubleshooting Difficult BOLT Lock Key Turning When Used with 2015 Ram Key
  • I spoke to my contact at Bolt and she informed me that it sounds like you are using the emergency key on your 2015 Ram and that is why you are having the issues you are experiencing. She said the emergency key is small enough that it is hard to get enough torque on the key to turn the lock in the Bolt lock like part # BL7018452. She recommended you use the valet key or the standalone that is given with the truck and it should be easier to use.

  • Is the Thule No Sway Cage Bike Stabilizer TH955 Necessary for a Thule Parkway Bike Rack
  • You do not have to have the anti-sway cages, # 753-3530, if you do not want them. However, using them greatly reduces the movement of the bikes and I think it is well worth it to add them. I know on my Thule bike rack, before I strap the anti-sway cage to the bikes they do move quite a bit. But after strapping the bikes to them, the bikes hardly move at all.
