My original down cradles were worn out. One was broken. Glad I was able to order these high quality replacement parts. Got them quickly and they were easy to install
This strap works better than the one which came with the rack. I do not need to use pliers to push the button down. Thanks for the improvement.
The part is ok. But I believe the center post on the XR200 rack is the reason it broke. The post is too short to reach the cross bars of my bikes and other trade off positioning doesn’t line up well either, so there is always added stress on these clamps one or the other.
The quality is good and I bought these as additional tie-downs. However, they they don’t come with the tightening screws to hold them in place. Why wouldn’t these be supplied as well?! So now I just have them as spares.
Very good to start over w/new cradles! One old one had a cracked strap-bracket, the other was torn loose (because that bike had been strapped down incorrectly to the tire cradle and bounced around). I only wish I could do the same on my alternate brand bike carrier on my wife's car.
