Video Transcript for Yakima Hitch Bike Racks Y8890297 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the replacement zip strip straps for the Yakima standard bike rack cradles. This is for a quantity of two. This set of zip strips will replace the lost or damaged straps for the Yakima standard anti-sway cradles. These are nice hassle-free zip strip straps that'll secure your bike to the bike rack and they are fully removable. They are designed to fit the Yakima hitch-mounted bike carriers that utilize these zip strips and that would be the Ridgeback that are manufactured before 2016, the Swing Daddy, which is manufactured before 2016, the Full Tilt and the Full Swing. This part does include the two replacement straps and then just for a demonstration purpose, I happened to pull, here's what the anti-sway cradle would be like on those bike racks. The way the zip strips would work as you can see, you just insert it right over like that, push it all the way in, and push it down as far as you need to to tighten your bike to the cradle.

Then to release it, all you have to do is push in on these, and it's fully removable. Comes right out. That includes two of them, because you can use one for the anti-sway cradle portion also. Again, you just adjust them by pushing them in. Push these levers in and you pull it out as far as you need or completely all the way out. That should do it for the review on the replacement zip strip straps for the Yakima standard bike rack cradles, quantity of two..

Replaces the ZipStrip straps on your Yakima bike carrier with standard cradles.


Looking for very hard to find replacement straps for a Yakima rack. After an ordering issue (my fault), I was able to return the incorrect ones and the replacement straps were delivered within the week! Very prompt and convenient!


The straps fit perfectly. About 8 years ago, I purchased a used Yakima 4 bike carrier. It was an old model and straps did not come with it. I've been searching for these replacement straps ever since and was the only place I was able to locate them.


I'm writing to apologize for the online review that I gave about the delivery of the above order. I totally confused etrailer with Yakima; all of my comments are about my order with them. I did receive my ZipStrip straps today and they are just what I needed!


The strips had larger ridges on outside top and to wide to fit into slot. When I called into discuss I was asked for model number of bike rack which I can not locate. I will stop on bike shop for guidance. However I have moved from lo a new location and can not go to store where rack was purchased. Thank you

If you know if the rack is a Yakima rack and if you can send a picture of it, then I am happy to help.

Exactly what I need for my Yakima bike rack. Good price, reasonable shipping and fast & friendly service. Thank you……


I have been looking for these straps for while and came across etrailer.

I have to say, the information on the site was spot on, there were good reviews and I was able to make the correct selection.

I did the standard shipping and still received my items within a week.

I will definitely use them again.

Job well done!!!


Somehow, after a major bike ride, our zip straps were missing, and without them, we could not use our Yakima carrier, especially because my husband's electric bike is heavy. I could no longer get replacements from [online store] or Yakima and was even sent the wrong size once. I was really grateful that Noah from your company sent me exactly the right size, and they arrived quicker than I expected. I expect to use the carrier for many more years and will definitely look to etrailer if I ever need anything else for it.


Item is exactly as described as pictured. The item was on a significant back order from the manufacturer and etrailer kept me updated as to the status and shipped the item as soon as it became available.


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, these ZipStrips.

etrailer had given me an expected ship date of a week out from when I placed my order. A month later, and after the trip I needed the parts for, my order shipped. The main problem I have with etrailer, is that they held the entire order until this part was in. I could have worked around these straps, but really needed the SpeedKnob they were sitting on, until the entire order was filled. However, etrailer still gets 4 stars, because they are the only place on the internet (including Yakima) that sells these (they are discontinued) and they aren't trying to gouge you on the price.

As for the Strips themselves, they fit perfectly.

Thank you for your review. In order to get the free shipping, your entire order ships at the same time. If you wanted the other parts sooner, you would have to pay for shipping.

Finally found these replacements to fit Tesla bike rack made by Yakima.


Excellent product but hard to get with supply chain issues.
Thanks trailer


They did not fit into the slots. Too thick. Do you have an early version that was not as thick?

I am happy to see if we would have the straps that you need. I do have a few questions that I want to ask. What is the name of the bike rack that you have and do you know when it was manufactured?
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 11/09/2022
I would guess the rack is plus or minus 5 years old. It attaches to the top of the hatch door and the rear underbody. These straps secure the pads - one at top of window & one on rear bumper.- The rack holds 2 bikes. It only has the company name on it YAKIMA, no model indication or other ID could be found.
-- comment by: Charles - 11/09/2022
I hate to ask you for more info, however since it is a trunk mounted bike rack, I will need to. Is it possible to send a picture of it? Also, what is the year, make. and model of your vehicle?
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 11/09/2022


These bike racks are extremely easy to use (mount and demount bike); only problem is i often missplace these tie downs.
I even recommended the rack to a friend recently who bought one.

Great, very durable

Bought the rack used, and didn’t realize there are two different sizes and thicknesses of strap.Luckily I was able to cut it down!


These zip strips do not work on the newer Yakima Full Tilt bike racks. (I bought the rack this year) After doing some more research on the Yakima site, I believe the newer Full Tilt bike rack require the super crush zip strips. Online e-trailer description for what racks these fit is not correct (although the customer service rep said she would correct this description). Do extensive research before purchasing these to see if they will fit your rack. DOES NOT FIT FULL TILT RACK. Fast shipping and good customer service.

Yakima FullTilt bike racks made after 2016 will use the newer ZipStrip for SuperCrush Cradles 8880566.

These guys have been awesome with geting things shipped quickly. Unfortunately I ordered the wrong thing and need to reorder


Ordered these zip strips from website which said they were the correct ones for my Yakima Ridgeback2 rack. They are the wrong size. Apparently they fit racks manufactured prior to 2016, mine was manufactured in 2017. The size of the teeth on the zip strip changed on the newer racks. No way to know that when ordering them. Old part #8899257, newer part #8880566. I had to contact Yakima Customer Service myself to find all this out. I was told the receiver for the zip strip is grey on the older mfg rack and black on the newer racks. Etrailer is checking to see if they can just send me the correct ones. It would have saved a lot of hassle if the website made that distinction for ordering parts.

That is correct Colette, the older Yakima Ridgeback that was produced before 2015 has a gray release button, and the newer version has a black release button.

Great communication. Perfect transaction. Once in stock, fast shipping!


Thank you. So happy to get this order. Hard to find item.


Answered my question on a weekend! Excellent service.


Considering Packaging and delivery cost, price for 1 set of 2 is fair but as my carrier needs 12, a larger set with more straps and lower unit price would be welcome.


Will use these for a latching system that I plan to machine to secure things (not only bicycle related) in the bed of my pickup truck. Prompt shipping, thank you A+++


I have had many Yakima products over the years. Their product line and customer service are top notch. Most of the items I have ordered from etrailer. These ZipStrip straps were hard to find but etrailer had them in stock. They are sturdy and hold my bikes securely in place. Easy to use and beat the homemade tie downs I had been using on my rack.


Zip straps for this older model bike rack were near impossible to locate and I had no spares. Other Yakima zip straps looked similar, but closer examination showed they would not work. etrailer to the rescue.They had aphoto of the correct product and took the order. Although the product did not arrive from China for months, Carol at etrailer, kept me in the loop with regular updates up until the shipping.


Worked as expected.
