Review of the Thule Passive Security Strap for Trunk Mounted Bike Carriers


Today we'll be taking a look at the Thule Passive Security Strap for trunk mounted bike racks, part number TH533. The Thule Passive Security Strap is a quick and economical way to secure your trunk mounted bike rack to your vehicle. It simply loops around your trunk mount, the other end has, what Thule refers to as a puck, that's going to go into your trunk or, in this case, our rear hatch area, and that puck can't be pulled out. Once your hatch is secured, your bike rack is secured. I know what you're thinking, that's just a simple I could cut it, get right in, take this joker's bike rack. Not so. It's actually a nylon coated steel cable, there's two of them, and they are very difficult to just cut and get into so you can rest assured that your bike rack is going to be secure.

Now that we've gone over some features, I'll go ahead and show you how easy it is to use. We're working with our Thule Passage Trunk Mounted Bike Rack today, but this is really going to work with most of your trunk mounted bike racks. It's easy set up, you're going to want to take the puck end, which is this round end, and you're going to loop it around your bike rack and back through the loop on the other end of your passive strap. Once you pull that tight, you can then take the puck, we'll open up our rear hatch, and we're just going to toss it in there, and it's that simple. Once your hatch is locked, there's no way anybody can get your bike rack off. That's going to complete our look at the Thule Passive Security Strap for trunk mounted bike racks, part number TH533..
