Video Transcript for Review of Thule Replacement Cradle Strap For Parkway Bike Racks - 853-2569

Hi, everybody. Andy here with And today, we're gonna take a quick look at this Replacement Cradle Strap for the Thule Parkway Bike Racks. If you're needing to replace a cradle strap for your Thule Parkway bike rack, then this just might be the strap that you need. Specifically, this is going to work with the Parkway bike racks with the item numbers that you see on the screen. And then let me pull out my ruler here and just give you some overall measurements.

The overall length of this strap, we are sitting right at 5 1/8 inches long, and then the measurement of the adjustment hole width, and not the inside width of the hole but the actual outside width of the hole, we are sitting right at about 5/8 of an inch. Now, this does include one cradle strap. And because this is the replacement from Thule, you can have the confidence that this is going to work with your Parkway bike racks. Well, that's gonna conclude our brief look today. I do hope that it was helpful for you.

Again, my name is Andy. Thank you for joining me..

Replaces 1 cradle strap for Thule Parkway bike racks (TH956, TH957, and TH958).


Two of the straps broke the second time used.


The replacement cradle straps were high quality and a perfect fit. One year in and they are holding up well. Highly reccomend


Only place to find these replacement cradle straps for an older Thule bike carrier. Exact replacement, high quality rubber straps.


This replacement was EXACTLY the same quality as the orignal which lasted approximately 14 years. Thank you for the quick delivery. I will using my bicycle rack this weekend, as we are taking our bikes on a Halloween adventure.


I lost a strap for my Thule bike rack. This fit and worked GREAT!!!


Great service! This was the only company I could find that carried the correct replacement product for my Thule bike carrier.


I almost lost my bike two Times until I got the new straps now it’s nice and tight again


I ordered replacement bike straps for my bike rack, but what I ordered didn't fit. I called etrailer and got wonderful customer service. The rep told me exactly what to do to return the merchandise and he told me to take a few pictures of my bike rack along with a picture of the good straps I had on the rack. He emailed me back the very same day with not only the name of my Thule rack, (which I didn't know since I got it from a friend) but he also had the straps that should fit. I ordered those right away and received them within about a week. And they fit! Great service, thanks so much for your help.


My original straps that came with the bike rack broke and I did not want to throw away the rack since it was not cheap.'s replacement parts did the trick and added life to my bike rack that was unusable.

Thank you etrailer.


There straps for my Thule 4 position Parkway Bike Rack, are in my opinion one of the best systems to secure my bike for transport. eTrailer Customer service did an outstanding job of support my order. This item was Out of Stock 6 months ago, so I called directly instead of using the web. site, spoke to Paula and the rest of the Order process with flawless! I have dealt with eTrailer four times in the last 10 years, inclduing Hitches, Equipment, etc. and every time the experience has been very satisfactory. This company is a "Class Act" in their field.


We were grateful to find the cradle straps for our old Thule bike rack (since Thule doesn't sell the replacement straps anymore). After searching the internet we found that etrailer sells them. After looking at reviews we were hesitant to order them. We called and ordered them on the phone and everything went perfectly. We needed the straps quickly to transport our bikes for a triathlon and paid extra for quicker shipping. They arrived yesterday and they are exactly what we needed.
The staff were good to work with on the phone and very professional


I was looking everywhere for these Bike straps for our Thule Bike Rack.
They are not available from the Mfg. But found them at
They fit perfect, and are exactly like the originals ones.
Great customer service and quick delivery.


Perfect straps for my old bike rack . Hard to find. Excellent turn around time. Thank you !


Arrived quickly even with international delivery. Looks and fits just like the original


These were a perfect replacement and have held up great for the past year.


I have been searching for these straps for years. Shipping was fast and the straps get my bike rack working properly again.


Good quality and fast service


The replacement strap works great!! Tha nks!!


I was surprised not only did I receive communication when my products were shipped but received an email from Etrailer when they were delivered. The replacement straps for my older Thule bike rack worked as intended and saved me from having to upgrade.


Terrible. Broke second time using. Very disappointed


Timely delivery and just what I needed.


Bought these replacement straps for my Thule bike rack. Quality material. Fits perfect! Reasonable price. Fast shipping.

Still great

Tried buying these at local bike shops and on[line] but they either weren’t available or more expensive. One bike shop tried to sell me the wrong straps. etrailer came through and I’ve purchased replacement straps several times to keep them on hand. Fair price, good service. Recently ordered replacement straps for my Swagman bike rack yoo


Correct product and timely delivery tim e!


Works great and still looks like new after one year.
I recommend this product and!

Everything still working just fine.
