Video Transcript for Review of Thule Ladder Rack Parts - Replacement Rubber Block - TARB-11032-1

Hey everybody. I'm Ellen here and we're taking a quick look at the replacement part for your base rail track rack ladder rack. So this is going to be what goes into the stake pocket of your truck. And then the bolt goes through, attaches it into that plate nut to tighten it down and give you that good secure fit in the stake pocket without damaging your truck. So, something happened to this. Maybe it got lost or damaged or just fell down and went into the ether somewhere.

This is going to be a direct replacement from the manufacturer. So you make sure that you can get rolling again with your install. So let's take a closer look. It is just going to be a rubber block. It's a nice sturdy or firm rubber.

So it provides a little bit of give, but not so much that it's going to, again, damage that stake pocket. So if you ever take your ladder rack off, you shouldn't have to worry about anything being bowed or bent out of place. So the small hole is the top. That's where your bolt is going to drop through. You have open sides there, so you can kind of see what's happening.

Not that you really will see what's happening cause it's going to be inside that stake pocket. But anyway, give you some measurements. Width is right under two inches. I'd say about one and 15/16. And then about two and 3/16 by about one and 3/16.

We want to get really technical on those measurements. That's pretty much all there is to it for our look at the replacement rubber block for your base rail installation of your track rack sliding ladder rack. I hope that this has been helpful in deciding if this is the right replacement part for you. We do have a lot of other replacement parts [email protected] And all kinds of stuff for your trucks, SUVs, RVs, boats and more, [email protected] So be sure to check them out. Thanks for watching..

Replacement Rubber Block for Base Rail Installation of TracRac Sliding Ladder Racks - Qty 1 - TARB-11032-1

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (104 Customer Reviews)

Replaces 1 rubber expansion block for installation of TracRac base rails. Fits in stake bed pocket to attach rails to truck bed.


This item seems overly expensive (what doesn’t these days?). Nonetheless, I needed four new ones because I got a new tonneau and needed to remove my TracRac (Thule) ladder rack rails for compatibility analysis.
The new rail pocket blocks worked great and the new Retrax One MX tonneau and old ladder rack are beautifully compatible on my 2015 F-150. Thanks!


Thule needs to revisit the engineering on these Rubber Blocks. the blocks that came with my rack didn't last one removal. Hopefully I can retire th metal "net" from the Ford's stake wells. If it issuing to cost me $xxx USD each time I remove the rack I could not recommend the Thule racks to others,


Hard to find but etrailer delivered!


Quite pricey for a piece of rubber, but it does what it's suppose to do. Have bought many items from etrailer and there customer service has always been excellent!!


seemed to have gone well installing pocket stake rubbers, bolts and used rack. cinsidering i had to cut rails from 8 ft to 6.5 and deal with fused nuts and bolts. it istalled in under an hour. no complaints besides it raining on me.
also bought the rack knobs. all are nice and work well


Parts was all good fit like a glove


Well. Here’s what I think. The parts came quickly and worked well. So I’ll give a 5 star with that. Its the face that they charge XX+ dollars for EACH little rubber plug is Robbery.
So they get a 1 star for that.


As described


This is a cheap piece of hard rubber necessary for installing the rails. If you need to remove the rails for any reason, the old block base is too deformed to use again. $XX+ for four replacements is terrible.


great service


Prompt delivery and products were exactly as advertised. Great service!


these replacements are Not as beefy or as pliable as original equipment.
I haven't installed them yet; I hope they will "lock" the tracks in place and not fail when the rack is under load on roadway conditions.


a good fit in my stake pockets. made a firm connection of the rack to the truck when torqued correctly.

no problem after first year.

Great product! Tightened up after the initial break-in and it’s been doing what it’s supposed to do and keeping the rack/cover and bed rail in place with no issues.


We had a set of truck racks that we purchased years ago thru Trac-Rack that worked perfectly for us. Last year our truck was involved in an accident and totaled but the racks weren't damaged at all. We needed to replace our truck and wanted to use the same racks but we needed to purchase the rubber block for the base rail. We have been satisfied and continue using the truck racks daily.


Not as substantial as my factory original blocks (my TracRac SR is older...prior to thule's acquisition of TracRac), but they work

TIP: In cold areas, keep these things inside till you are ready to go out and install them. Even warm them up in warm water first, and keep them in your pocket till you are ready to drop them in. This design doesn't expand as easily as the old style, but a little heat helps big time.


I needed these in order to put my TracRac ladder racks onto my new truck. They worked perfectly. Price was very reasonable and shipping was fast. Thanks!!


Just what I needed. They work great


etrailer delivered all products as described on their website. I am pleased with their service and would recommend them to others.


grateful i can find small replacement parts for this truck rack. Items were delivered ultra-quickly and were as ordered. I'll use etrailer as a proven vendor for my needs.


Worked fine, a bit expensive for rubber blocks.


The place where I had purchased my Trak Rack has closed and there are no places close enough or with a good enough rating to have them install the system on my new truck. I ordered the necessary parts from you and after a very short time on the phone we were all set. The package came, everything was there and i couldn't be happier.
Thank you very much.


Fast delivery


The rubber blocks worked great. Just what I needed to put my rack back on.


I was VERY SATISFIED with my experience with, The staff was extremely helpful and handled my order quickly and accurately. I definitely recommend them!
