I had no intent of writing a review but Carol C. at eTrailer wouldn't except my refusal so here is my not so positive review.
The bolts were overpriced comparatively. I would have purchased them direct from Thule but they were out of stock. If you have a local reliable nut and bolt/hardware store do yourself a favor and purchase them there. Just make sure you purchase the proper grade.




by:

I went to three different stores including the two big box hardware stores to find the correct bolt to connect my Thule rack and it wasn’t until I decided to look on etrailer.com that I found the correct bolt…. Now I can haul four bikes instead of just two!




by:

I have ordered this product for many years. The reason I gave it a four-star rating is that it doubled in price within a year! Ridiculous!




by:

I ordered these parts to modify my Thule 916 to carry an Elliptigo in addition to my two road bikes. Ordering was quick and easy plus shipping was upgraded at no charge. Do yourself a favor and order all your racks and parts from these guys. I know I will!




by:

Wish it had washers also




by:

Had a great experience with etrailer. Needed a bolt for my Thule Bike Rack Hitch. No one else could get me one. They delivered quickly and on time as I had a trip coming up and wanted to take a couple bikes.




by:

Excellent service and timely delivery of product! I was desperate as I lost the screw that attaches my Thule bike rack to the hitch. Thought I could run to the hardware store and grab a screw. Nope! etrailer came to the rescue. Thanks!




by:

The quality is good and got here on time. 10/10 will order from here again.




by:

Right part with quick delivery




by:

Fast and easy to get what I needed!




by:

Looks good




by:

The bolt arrived a day or two before it was promised - overall I am happy.




by:

Product is the correct replacement for the tuhle bike rack.




by:

It was the piece I needed. Your website was clear, cart and payment efficient, and delivery timely. Thank you.

I live in Upstate New York and owned a Thule bike rack for a long time...but during a recent move I lost the bolt holding the rack to the hitch. I tried to find a replacement at local hardware and bike stores, but no luck (and a few wasted $$$). Then, I saw the internet your internet site with the right bolt right there on the screen. I placed an order for two of them (to be safe....one long and the other short) and they arrived at my house forthwith in a couple of days. Happily both bolts fit perfectly. I am most impressed with the quality of your service...you emailed me about my order, the delivery date, and my satisfaction.....All EXCELLENT. My bike and I are on the road again...thanks.

Replaced my late 90's Jeep Cherokee Sport with a new Toyota 4Runner. The Toyota has a 2" receiver, so I needed a solution for my older Thule Hitching Post Pro 4-bike rack. Ideally, it would be nice to get this bolt about 3/4" longer, so it could go deeper (maybe all the way through) the 2" receiver and the adapter to the other side. But it worked good enough as-is. My old bolt was showing some age. Once I inserted the Thule adapter and the bike rack, I tightened it down and the rack did not jiggle around at all while driving. Problem solved!




by:

Great service. I highly recommend etrai ler.com




by:

The right part and on time!




by:

The BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE I have ever experienced!!!
A friend asked to borrow our Thule 5-bike hitch for their summer vacation...as I pulled it out I realized it was missing a bolt. I found etrailer on line and called their customer service...They were amazing ...expedited the bolt the same day :)




by:

Product was as ordered and fit perfectl y.




by:

Bought a Thule 4 Bike rack carrier off of Marketplace. Was told everything was good and foolish of me I didn't double check. The bolt it came with was stripped slightly halfway and wasn't securing correctly. Bought this bolt here and man what a smooth fit. Glad it'll worked out and now feel better that it's more secure.




by:

This bolt, plus the washer and the lock washer were exactly what I needed for the old Thule hitch bike rack I bought.




by:

The original bolt that came with my Thule Roadway bike rack broke off- originally I thought it had backed out and fell off. Fortunately both sides of the receiver are threaded. I found this OEM bolt on the etrailer web site and it was a perfect fit. Rebecca was great on the phone helping me find the correct part- a true asset to the etrailer.com team! Thanks Rebecca.




by:

This bolt was just what I needed for my Thule bike rack. I should have ordered the washer and lock washer at the same time, penny wise dollar foolish. live and learn. Thanks for all the help.




by:

Very nice company and easy to deal with. I ordered a few small replacement parts and they were delivered in about a week. Very quick service.
