Replacement Cradles & Straps for Older Thule Hitch-Mount 4-Bike Hanging-Style Rack


I have an old Thule 515-0109 hitch mounted 4 bike rack. I need to replace the cradles/straps. Can I use the Thule Stay Put Cradle 853-7887 on this rack? The arm tube diameter on my Thule is ~1. Thanks


Helpful Expert Reply:

The replacement Stay-Put cradle you referenced, part # 853-7887, will fit the 1-inch diameter tubing used in many different Thule racks, including their Roadway, Parkway, Hitching Post Pro and Passage series. It works with Anti-Sway Cage # 853-7758. If these components resemble those that originally came with your rack then they are quite likely to be correct replacements.

Thule has produced quite a good number of different hitch-mount racks over the years and these various designs use different types of cradle assemblies. The part reference you provided, 515-0109, I could not verify with Thule as a current rack part number.

Please feel free to submit a photo of your rack and the cradle assemblies if you wish. This will help us verify the correct fit of these Thule replacement parts. You can also search on our site using the term 'Thule cradle' to see all replacement parts in this category.
