Replacement Cradle and Straps for Thule 515-0109 Bike Rack


I need a replacement cradle/strap and also a bar cap for my 515-0109 Thule. Can you assist with the part numbers for ordering? Best, Doug


Expert Reply:

We do have some options for parts, but there will be no direct replacements since this rack is no longer made. For your Thule model 515-0109 bike rack, the best options for replacement straps are the # 05002200000 or the # 853-2569.

For the cradles, the Replacement Stay-Put Cradle for Thule # 853-7887 is what I can offer as a replacement option. This replacement part will fit 1" diameter tubing and fits on many current Thule bike rack models. These work with the Replacement Anti-Sway Cage for Thule Bike Racks # 853-7758. Keep in mind that this part will only work if the diameter of your arms is 1" on the 515-0109.

Using the assumption that you have 1" diameter tubing, the Replacement Round Tube End Cap for Thule Round Tube Bike Carriers # 853-2181 will be the correct replacement cap for your bar.

Should you choose to replace your bike rack, I recommend the Thule Hitching Post Pro - Folding Tilting 4 Bike Rack w Anti-Sway # TH934XTR. This rack fits 1-1/4" and 2" receivers with a weight capacity of 35 lbs per bike. It has anti-sway cradles, a tilting mast, folding arms and universal compatibility.
