Thule Hitch Cargo Carrier - Watersport Carriers - 853-5210-02 Review

Hey everyone, I'm Ellen here at Today, we're taking a look at the replacement pin and clip for the Thule Goalpost and the Thule Parkway. The Goalpost and the Parkway are going to both be available here at These are items that need to have a pin to keep in place that pivot point, and then also be able to remove that, so that you can pivot it down into the storage position or maybe in the upright position, whatever the case might be. And this is a pretty universal pin with that capture pin or capture clip. So, it can be used for a lot of different things.

I'm going to go over some measurements with you to make sure that this is going to work for your application. So, this square kind of capture pin here, the inside measurement is about 2 5/8", really, I'd say it's about 2 1/2" of usable space inside there to make sure that it's going to fit around whatever you need it to. The pin itself, open that back up from the head to the very end of the pin, we have exactly 3" or pretty close to about 3" to work with that capture clip.It does have a little spring to it. It's about 2 1/2" again of usable space there to where it actually clips in place. So, even though the pin itself is 3" long, you can really only use about 2 1/2" before that clip kind of bottoms out.

It does have a little stretch to it, so it should work out all right, for just about anything that would fit inside that 2" or so. Open this back up and try not to snap my finger again. The diameter of the pin is about 3/8", the head is about 5/8", and the distance or the height of this capture clip is about 1 3/4". So, works out for a lot of different applications, a lot of different bike racks out there, including the Thule Goalpost and the Thule Parkway by carriers. But that's pretty much going to do it for our look at the replacement pin and clip for various Thule accessories..
