Video Transcript for Thule TracRac and Xsporter Ladder Racks Replacement M8 T-Bolt Review

Adam: What's going on, everybody Adam here with etrailer. Today, we're just going to be talking about some replacement parts for your Thule track rack or your Xsporter ladder rack. The one in particular we're doing now is going to be our T-bolt here. And it is just going to be an exact replacement, but I'm going to go over some measurements anyway.It's going to be about three quarters of an inch wide, this little flat part here. It's going to be about an inch tall, and the diameter of the threaded side of our T-bolt here is going to be about three tenths of an inch. But, so pretty much what we're going to use with this is what our little knob is tightening down on.As you can see here, we're not having any issues, it isn't seized up or anything like that.

And that's what we want. But if you guys aren't getting that smooth of a roll with this knob, it's probably time to replace it.So we're going to go ahead and show you guys how right now. We are going to have to remove this end plate here. Grab the right size Allen tool and loosen that up. Actually going to remove it completely.

Just like that, take that out. And then we can go ahead and actually completely remove, a little hole down here. We're going to slide that out real quick. Put the new one back in. Pretty much done deal after we replace our cap.So this isn't really a long thing, but if you're dealing with threads that are cross threaded or rusted or anything like that, it's definitely a very quick fix just to not have that frustration whenever you're using your ladder rack.Whenever I'm working, the least amount of frustrations I have the better.

But just know we have replacements for pretty much everything you guys need here at etrailer. And all of them are going to be relatively easy, just because we did assemble this ladder rack when you guys got it out of the box. So it's going to be that same exact process. And as of right now, we are pretty much done. Did this down, now we're good.So hopefully you guys enjoyed the video and just know that we do have a lot of replacement parts for these ladder racks to help you guys to get your work done a little bit smoother.So when we're viewing the website, we see you guys ask a lot of questions on, if you guys can customize your stuff.

A lot of people are wondering if you guys can use it with the wing bars and you can. The slot is going to be wide enough to be able to fit this through there. So if you guys are really customizing your guy's rig and you guys think that the dimensions that I said earlier are going to work with this replacement part, you guys can go ahead and go for it. Make it yours, but do us a favor and share it on our website. So we know what you guys use it for.Well, everybody that just about does it for a look at the replacement table for your Thule track rack or Xsporter ladder rack.

Replacement M8 T-Bolt for Thule TracRac and Xsporter Ladder Racks - 853-5715

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (64 Customer Reviews)


Fitment was perfect Also works good with my Retrax Toneau cover


These are the M8 Tbolts I needed to attach my rhino sunseeker awning to my thule evo wingbars. The rhino M8 Tbolts have a 21x21 mm square head that do not fit the thule evo wingbar's 19 mm wide channel.


I bought a couple of M-8 T-bolts to reinforce the installation of quick-release brackets for the Ironman awning on the
Thule Wingbar Evo 127 roof rack on my Subaru Crosstrek. The order was shipped and delivered very quickly, and the t-bolts are good quality.
I could not find M-8 T-bolts in local hardware stores (could only find smaller and shorter bolts locally), so I was glad to find them available on etrailer website! Thank you!


I am pleased to find what I was looking for so fast on their web site.

They are working great. I find it only takes 10 minutes to take him off or put them back on again so I run most of the time without him to get better gas mileage.

I needed the correct hardware to install an awning off my roof rack. This was exactly what I needed


Perfect! Just what I have been needing!


These guys are great. I tried getting these parts from the company who makes them and they were slow, expensive and not in stock. etrailer had them in stock and they are now on my truck. etrailer is now my go-to company for the parts I need.


It works and delivery was fast.


Parts as described. Came in timely fas hion.


As described and worked for my application. etrailer is a great place to find exactly what you are looking for, even when you are looking outside the box.


Great service, shipped on time.


Nice that I can get replacement Thule parts from you easier than Thule!


Great customer service and great produc ts!


Bolt worked great in my Thule Xsporter Ladder Rack to secure my ratcheted tie down accessory. Outstanding product.


Excellent product. Perfect Thule replacement bolts. Works perfectly with my Thule Xsporter Pro 500 Truck Rack. eTrailer is great to work with, great prices and super fast shipping!


Productswere exactly as described, fits great. Allowed me to bolt my old rack to the top of my new one using the footbase. Great support from etrailer, product shipped on time and got here fast.


This is not a review so much of the product; it's just a bolt for the ladder stop. But E-Trailer is a fantastic company, the smallest parts order is given the same treatment as a large one, they have everything you need and delivery is fast.


These M8 t-bolts are exactly want I needed for my truck bed rack. The fit perfectly in the slotted aluminum extrusions. The items got to my home very fast and the customer service from etrailer is top-shelf!!

Thanks guys!


It was the exact part that I needed and for my thule load stops and was shipped fast.


Exactly like original product


Exactly as described. Using them to secure some older modified kayak racks to the newly purchased tracrac.


Product works great, paired with a T bolt to hold Thule kayak cradles.


Perfect fit for my Thule Aero cross bars


etrailer team was excellent with support and updates.
Item is exactly as described. I have not yet installed it, but I don't foresee any issues.


Needed additional parts for my Thule Exsporter. Reached out to etrailer, they had what I needed and a couple of days later they arrived. Will purchase from again.
