Video Transcript for Yakima Bike Racks Replacement SpeedKnob Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the replacement speed knob and wedge assembly for the Yakima bike racks, part number 8880508. The Yakima replacement speed knob is to be used with the Full Swing, Swing Daddy, Ridgeback and Full Tilt bike racks when their speed knobs are either damaged or the threads at the end are stripped out. It comes with the black knockout here which you're going to remove that and it has the control key to remove the lock core from your previous speed knob to replace it into this one. To get started we'll first remove our wedge piece here by unscrewing it and set it aside now we'll grab our damaged speed knob and start replacing it as well. Now we'll move on to our bike rack and have our Yakima Ridgeback here on our table and the issue with is the thread is stripped out in our wedge. We'll push that off to the side, remove our speed knob as well, now we'll get our new one and start installing it. First since this is a Ridgeback, we'll have to remove this top piece from the wedge. Take our allen tool, unscrew those two allen screws, move onto the one on the inside.

Now we can grab our new wedge and install this piece on top of it. What this piece actually does is it takes up the additional space on our Ridgeback so it'll fit properly in a two inch hitch. If you we're to convert this into an inch and a quarter you would remove this piece again. Finally, our second screw, one last turn to make sure it's nice and tight. Next we'll move onto our lock core switch out here. To remove this plastic cap, we'll take a small flat bladed screwdriver and just pop that out, very easy, and then we'll take our master key here put it into the core and it pulls out like so. Again, very easy.

To place it into our new lock, we'll push it in holding onto the end of the core and pull it out. Now we're ready to install this. We'll take our lock washer and install it on our replacement speed knob here and we'll install it at the end of the shank like so. Then we'll take our wedge and we'll just start to screw it in on the inside. You see the cutout here, you want to make sure that the wedge fits along that area. Here's the end of our speed knob so we'll just match them up, just start threading it in so it catches.

Now we can place it into our vehicle, slide it into our trailer hitch and go by the normal installation procedures for this bike rack. Now we'll go into the end here and tighten down our new knob. As we tighten it down, you'll notice that the shake and play has gone away which means it's working properly. All right, it looks like we're ready to go, we'll lock it into place so it's secure in the vehicle and now we can load up some bikes. There you have it for the replacement speed knob and wedge assembly part number 8880508.

Finding this replacement was awesome. No need to purchase a new bike rack. The product was a direct replacement. Everything was made easy with the video found on the website. Highly recommend this replacement.




by:

The original speed knob was no longer tightening the bike rack. I thought threads might have been at least partially stripped. This new one is doing its job. Fortunately I had an Allen wrench that fit the screws to swap out the old wedge for the new, which at first didn't really look like an Allen would work. A simple instruction sheet and even an included wrench (think IKEA) would be very helpful helpful.

I really enjoy the customer service at etrailer.
There was a slight mixup on my order but etrailer sent the part out right away, no questions ask.

Great

easy to install but just broke. Need to order another one to make the bikerack work




by:

etrailer was super accommodating when it came to getting my part. It was on back order from the manufacturer and George sent me periodic updates on the status of my order. Great company to work with.




by:

Thank you e-trailer for having this hard to find item available to order




by:

My rating is for etrailer! Yet again, they come through with the parts, when the manufacturer doesn't have them. My bike rack is awesome, but this part of designed so poorly, I anticipate having to come back to replace another in a few years.




by:

Just needed the wedge had to order the whole assembly. Fit good bike rack now useable again.




by:

Great customer service!!! We had to wait quite a while for this part due to manufacturing, but George stayed in contact throughout the process letting us know the expected time frame on it.

VERY satisfied with our experience!!




by:

This is the third time that I have had occasion to use etrailer since I purchased a bike rack for my car a number of years ago. Each time the service is great--the website is easy to use, the goods are reasonably priced and they get to me in just a few days. In this case, I needed a new Speedknob and wedge assembly used to tighten my Yakima Ridgeback bike rack into my hitch (the old one stripped out). I got it quickly and once again, I'm ready for another spring of bike riding.


Comments
Great—I just put the bike rack on the car getting ready for the spring and all is fine.

They were quick to send the item when the supply chain finally opened up




by:

This was a hard to get replacement part, but etrailer was able to get it.




by:

I've had my SwingDaddy bike rack for many years and use it almost everyday. Once in a while I get too close to things and scrap the knob pretty hard. I got this as a backup, in case I need to replace it. I love the rack and don't want to be without it for even a day!




by:

The Seedknob and Wedge Assembly comes earlier than I expected. The video of teaching how to replace it is very helpful. Thank you!




by:

Even though this product backordered, I felt everyone was on top of it and as soon as it was available it shipped the same day.




by:

Just great the way you show the tracking information... thanks I'll buy again from you




by:

I backed up into a very high curb and broke the knob on my bike rack. All that I needed was a new lockable knob for a Yakima HighLite, 2-bike rack. The only one available for that particular rack comes as part of a Replacement Mast with Anti-Rattle Knob and Adapter Sleeve, I thought that instead I would try the Replacement SpeedKnob and Wedge Assembly and see if it would work. I am pleased to say that it does! I was able to take both apart, the interior knob parts are the same, so I was able to just use the new knob on the old rack and save

Great products and service from etrailer!




by:

I bought a used Full Swing Rack that was missing a few parts. The Yakima Website was out of them all (and according to other reviews on their site, had been so for several months), and Yakima didn't have a date on when they expected to get them in. etrailer had the parts available (with one exception).

I thought this was going to be a knockoff SpeedKnob, but it is a genuine Yakima product. As such, it fits perfectly. It it super easy to add a lock tumbler and install on the hitch rack.




by:

Fast service. Arrived on time.




by:

Part was what I expected. The box it shipped it was poorly taped and I as amazed the part was still in the box considering the tape was not holding the box closed.




by:

Great communication with customer. My replacement SpeedKnob was delayed (not etrailers fault) due to the part coming from overseas. etrailer sent me an email to let me know, give me a direct contact person for questions and an updated delivery date. After receiving the package etrailer sent me a follow up email, which included a video on how to replace the part.




by:

Wow fast shipping thanks

  • Replacement Red Speedknob Wedge Solution for Yakima Bike Rack
    Just the red wedge of the Replacement SpeedKnob # 8880508 is not available separately so your best option is to replace the entire thing with this.

  • Replacement Wedge in Yakima Speed Knob
    The wedge you are seeking is only available in the Replacement SpeedKnob and Wedge Assembly for Yakima Bike Racks # 8880508. Yakima doesn't offer just the wedge as a separate piece.

  • Installation of the Yakima Swing Daddy Replacement Speed Knob and Wedge
    The Speed Knob replacement # 8880508 for your Yakima SwingDaddy will require removing the wedge and then inserting the threaded screw in the interior. It will be the same basic installation as the RidgeBack model you mentioned. To get the play out of the rack, you will slightly lift and lower the shank of your bike rack as you tighten the speed knob. Any of the small movement that is taken out at install will give you a more stable connection for less play in the receiver.

  • Replacement Tongue Assembly for Yakima DoubleDown Ace Bike Racks Just Turns
    If the knob of the Replacement SpeedKnob and Wedge Assembly for Yakima Bike Racks # 8880508 spins freely that means it is locked. You'd need to insert the change key that came with this into the old lock core from your rack to install it in this wedge so that you can use your actual key to unlock the knob and allow it to turn.

  • How To Remove Stuck SpeedKnob on Yakima RidgeBack Bike Rack
    I spoke with Yakima about removing the SpeedKnob on the Yakima RidgeBack Bike Rack and she stated that you need to just use more force since the threads are likely stripped. The other option which would not require excessive force would be to take some sort of blade or saw and cut off the knob directly at the rear. This can then be replaced with the Replacement SpeedKnob and Wedge Assembly for Yakima Bike Racks part # 8880508.

    Your Yakima RidgeBack 2 Bike Rack uses a SpeedKnob that tightens the rack inside your trailer hitch receiver.

To help with removing the red 2 inch adapter from the shank, you can try manipulating the SpeedKnob on the front of the rack while you try to remove the silver and red pieces. You should be able to free up these pieces so they can easily slide...

  • Replacement SpeedKnob and Wedge Assembly For Yakima Ridgeback 4 Bike Carrier
    I am unsure of what could have caused your Yakima RidgeBack 4 Bike Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting # Y02458 to lose its Speedknob. The only thing that makes sense to me is that it wasn't tightened or locked correctly, or the knob was faulty and came unscrewed. The wedge may still be in your hitch. I recommend the Replacement SpeedKnob and Wedge Assembly for Yakima Bike Racks # 8880508 and trying to connect it without the wedge to see if it is still in place. If it is there,...

  • Yakima Ridgeback Speedknob Replacement
    By design the Speedknob on your Yakima Ridgeback part # Y02458 should spin freely when it is in the locked position this prevents anyone from being able to remove your rack from the vehicle. When unlocked it is supposed to have friction that allows you to tighten the rack up to the vehicle then re lock it so it again spins freely once again. With what you are describing I say it has gone bad on you since it will not turn when locked and spins freely when unlocked the exact opposite of...

  • Why Isn't My Speed Knob on My Yakima RidgeBack # Y02458 Unscrewing?
    I have an answer for you. From the looks of your included pictures (thank you!), you have the Yakima RidgeBack 4 # Y02458. The latch mechanism is integrated in the whole mast assembly, so there are unfortunately no replaceable parts available for replacement. The best bet is to use a tool like a screwdriver or wrench to see if you can maneuver that tab to release the tilt mechanism. As far as the speed knob # 8880508, it is important to make sure that the knob is unlocked before releasing....

    The Yakima RidgeBack 4 Bike Rack # Y02458 has a SpeedKnob at the bottom that is designed to spin freely when it's locked and have the friction needed to loosen/tighten the bike rack when it's unlocked. It sounds like the opposite is happening to you and sometimes it's just a case of the lock not lining up with the Knob. I see you've tried push/pull while turning. Sometimes I find luck with wiggling the key around to get it synced up. Or trying to rotate the knob while inserting the key....
