Replacement Cradles for Graber Hitch-Mounted Bike Rack


I am in need of replacement cradles on an existing Graber hitch Style rack where the bikes hang from two round bars with cradles mounted on them. The existing round bar is 1 inch outside diameter and I was wondering if your thule stay put cradles would slide onto my existing bars. Your thule cradle mounting hole would have to be at least one inch for it to fit.


Helpful Expert Reply:

The Replacement Stay-Put Cradle # 853-7887 referenced in your question is indeed designed for 1 inch diameter tubes, so it could potentially work as a replacement for your Graber hitch-mounted bike rack. These will simply slide over the arm of the bike rack to provide the necessary attachment points for your bike.

Keep in mind that these have not been tested with the Graber bike racks, but if your carrier does feature 1 inch diameter arms, then these may work great. I have also attached a video demonstration on the cradles that you can check out.
