Review of Thule Accessories and Parts 853-5829

Today we're going to be reviewing part number 853-5829. This is the Two Lead Replacent T3 Cradle Body for Thule bike racks. The T3 cradle body is going to slide onto one of the support arms of your bike rack and it's going to provide an anchor point for your bike frame. See here it's got the nice little indentions in there. That's going allow and cables that you may have running under your bike frame to sit in there nicely without causing any type of damage to the cables or to the frame of your bike. This unit's going to replace one worn out or damaged cradle body for Thule bike racks with one inch diameter arms. That's going to be the diameter of this central hole here.

It is going to require a rubber strap, part number 753-3535 to secure the bike. That's going to be sold separately. One end of the strap's going to secure in the indention right here. Then it's going to come over the actual cradle body. Then it's going to have holes in the strap that are going to loop around one of the two provided anchors there for the strap.

Again, this is designed for bike racks with one inch diameter arms. Bike racks that this would work with are going to be the Thule Ridgeline, the Thule Roadway, the Thule Revolver and the Thule Spare Me bike racks. Nice rubber construction here on the internal component that slides over the bike rack arm. That's going to provide that nice, tight, secure fit. Again, you've got the rubber pad right here to comfort the frame of the bicycle. Few measurements to go over with you real quick.

I want to measure the length of the rubber pad going this direction. That's going to give us a measurement of about 2 and 13/16ths of an inch. If I measured going this way, just measuring this center section here that rubber pad we're going to be looking at about 1 and 5/8ths of an inch. That's going to do it for our review of part number 853-5829. This is the Thule Replacement T3 Cradle Body for Thule bike racks.
