This hitch-mounted, platform-style bike rack allows you to carry 2 bikes of almost any frame style or length. The bike carrier has adjustable hooks that hold your bikes securely in place and sliding wheel hoops to accommodate most bike lengths.
The Pro Series Q-Slot bike carrier provides an extremely versatile yet affordable way to carry up to 2 bicycles of almost any frame style or length. The hitch-mounted, platform-style rack has adjustable hooks and wheel hoops to accommodate most bikes and a shank that works with both 1-1/4" and 2" hitches.
The Q-Slot upright arm features a pair of adjustable hooks controlled by hand knobs. The independently adjustable hooks move up and down the support arm, allowing you to carry 2 bikes of unique sizes simultaneously. The hooks also have soft padding to protect your bike's paint finish.
The bike carrier features large wheel hoops that slide along the side tubes to accommodate bikes of almost any length. The wheel hoops are controlled by hand knobs and include Velcro straps to secure your bike wheels in place during travel.
All three of the rack arms - the side tubes and the upright mast - are held in place by bail pins. Removing the pins allows the arms to be folded up or down for convenient storage and access to your vehicle's rear cargo area.
The Q-Slot includes a nylon sleeve adapter that snaps into place over the 1-1/4" square shank to convert it for use with 2" square hitches. A 1/2" threaded hitch pin is included for use to secure the rack to your hitch.

Here on our test course, we'll start by going through the slalom. This is going to show us the side to side action. This simulates turning corners or evasively maneuvering. Once we get to the alternating speed bumps, we'll see the twisting action. This will simulate hitting a curve or pothole or driving over uneven pavement. Once we get to the full speed bumps, we'll see the up and down action.
This will be like driving in and out of a parking lot, parking garage or driveway. .

I never put anything excellent, so good is good. First I will say it was easy to put together 5 minutes maybe. Took longer to get out of box than put together. A 5 year old can do that part. Set up for the bikes was easy. About a minute or so fer each bike. Reason I bought this was because my wife's bike is a step-through and requires a bike beam which I do not like to use. They do fail on rough roads. This should do fine. Looks like the steel is heavy enough and the welds look good. I will still use a bungee strap to secure the bikes. Just don't trust everything. 2 Items I do not like. First is the plastic 1 1/4 to 2 adapter. I believe it will work fine but is it fails I can always buy a metal one for $10. The second is the pin used to secure to the hitch is not the same diameter all the way through. But then this is used to keep vibrations and noise down. Will see how it works over time on rough roads I guess. But over all looks good. 128629

The bike rack fits great. We had to wait a while for a company to make a reese hitch for the 2013 Hyundai Veloster. The bikes ride great just a little wobble. We had a little concern with the heat from the exhaust exiting in the middle of the rack. There is no problem with the heat. We are still able to handle the rack after transporting the bikes at any distance. There was no heat transferred to the bikes at while moving. We still would watch the heat to the bikes if we were caught in a traffic jam for any length of time. 94983

This product is a total waste of money. I used it once and the plastic knobs used to tighten the bikes in place are very shoddy. They broke in my hands when I tried to tighten them. They must be very tight or else the bars that go over the bike frame will pop up and your bike will spill onto the road. After it broke, the bolts were exposed and I could not find a wrench that was skinny enough to loosen it up. I ended up using a vice grip. I had bought extra knobs at a local harward store and they too broke. This product just requires too much strength to tighten everything and be secure. I do not recommend this product to anyone, ever. I am very disappointed as etrailer said I could not return the product of a full refund because I bought it back in June (I first used the rack on October 1) even though I only used it one. So now I am stuck with this rack and have to carry a wrench with me everytime I use it. It also takes a considerable amount of time to use the wrench to loosen and tighten everything. I have to stop driving everynow and then and check the rack and retightening everything. What a pain to deal with. 25234
This rack is so close to good but has some seriously fatal flaws- as mentioned by others, it is impossible to hand tighten the hooks that keep the bikes attached to the rack. I bought a rachet to be able to safely keep my bike on the rack. The fifth time I used the rack the carriage bolt turned in the holder and striped out the holder rendering it worthless. I replaced it with a standard bolt and now have to carry two wrenches to keep my bikes on the rack. The bikes WILL fall off if you don't use a tool to tighten the hooks. At this point i have completely removed all the hardware that came with the rack hooks and replaced it with my own bolt and a series of washers. It does work, but if you're not a diy-er don't even think about buying this rack. The plastic wheels that keep the wheel holders to the rack are also a major pain to tighten. You won't have to do this every time, but when i have to make adjustments there is always cursing involved. Take my advice- spend a few more bucks and get a better quality rack. I've already spent the difference on tools and hardware, and the rack is still a pain to use. 45067
I chose this particular rack because Im cheap. I admit it, I also admit that I do not buy anything without reading reviews first. The reviews for this rack were great so I figured I would give it a shot. etrailer.com were awesome, I purchased a hitch a couple weeks before and they noticed that so they shipped the bike rack the same day as a thank you for being a returning customer. Thank you. Now for the rack. This rack is nice and solid. I expected the wheel chocks to be cheap metal anywhere from 1/4 to 3/8th stock but they ended up being 1/2 which is super nice. For the price and type of rack, this thing is nice. I almost regret not going for the 4 bike setup. If youre like me where reviews and price matter I would 100% suggest this rack to you. I also bought a hitch lock to bring my total up to the $150 free shipping threshold. My only suggestion would be to ship at a reduced rate rather than getting it out a day sooner for return customers. I would rather save a few bucks than receiving it here a day sooner. 53686

Great produce at an excellent price. All parts needed for assembly included with detailed instructions. Easy assembly. I do have two negatives about the rack. First, due to the design with the different hinges and pins, the rack seems a bit shaky and wobbly going down the road loaded. Despite that, it is very secure and I am comfortable with my bike on this rack. The other negative is that somehow the frame hooks got squeezed together too much somewhere in the manufacturing or packaging process. Right out of the box they would not fit over the upright rail. I had to beat on them with a hammer to open them up to go on. Now that they are on, I love this rack. Would definitely purchase again from etrailer! 38544

This race is very nice and it holds the bike on very nicely. I purchased a rack last week when I got my new bike but had to stop 3 times on the way as it did not hold the bike secure and I thought it was going to fall off. I have no worries with the ps63134 . The hooks were to tight and would not slide on the the up and down bar. I had to spread them just a little to get them on and for them to slide but the wheel loops were also to tight and would not slide on but I could just spread them a little and they work GREAT. I'm very happy and very pleased with this rack it is really the first one I have owned for a hitch mount. My local bike shop has a rack that is similar to yours other than it had teeth like the old bumper jack it might be a step up from yours but it was 279.00 dollars but to be honest I very glad to have found yours and again I'm very happy with it. 35388

Brilliant product! It took me less than 15 minutes to put it together and it is nso easy to put the bikes on. I had a "T" bar type rack but my wife go a new ladies bike and that those not work with the T type rack. It's easy to put on and take off and folds nicely for storage. 138865

I put it together and like what I see so far. I haven't actually used it yet but will do so in a couple days when I go from western NYS to Florida. 30434

Thank you for all your help! The packages came on schedule and installation was a breeze! Thank you for your great customer service skills. Here's a few pics! 104031
Pros: It gets the job done. Cons: VERY difficult to get the plastic wingnuts tight enough to prevent slippage of both the wheel cradles and the bike frame holders. I have to use a large adjustable wrench on these. Since I carry the same bike, the wheel cradles only require one instance of that process, but the bike frame holder must be moved up/down each time the bike is unloaded/reloaded. There is also a lot of play at each junction point - at the trailer hitch, and each hinge point of the rack itself. This allows for a lot of overall wobble, but doesn't seem to cause any problems so far. It may be normal for racks of this type. 16570

Just received the rack this morning. Ready to roll with my new Cruiser! Thanks for the quick turnaround with the order. 29876

As they say, "you get what you pay for. This is an excellent example. For what I paid, I got a mediocre piece of equipment. I have a 2" receiver, and the adapter is a piece of hard plastic that goes over the bar. I expect that to last a year or two. The entire rack shakes and vibrates more than I should think is acceptable. Do not buy this for long distance travel, I wouldn't. We are using these carriers for short trips, less than 50 miles. All I can say is that I hope this will last until I can save for a Thule, and you definitely get what you pay for, for that carrier! 94280
I received my bike rack in a timely manner/4 days. Using the instruction booklet was very simple with good pictures and not a lot of confusing parts. I really like the fact the I put it all together,by myself in less than an hour,to see how it would look on my vehicle, a Jeep Liberty, that I could lift my bike on myself. Also i could use it for only one bike, and take the rack off easily if didn't need it. I am 71 years old and my bike is a one speed, old Beach Comber, so it worked out just fine and at a great price.!!! Thanks! 220891

This rack will be used to transport a road bike with a flat top tube and a mountain bike with sloped top tube. When first assembled, the pivots give the impression of being very loose and wobbly. After loading a bike onto the rack and securing it per the instructions, everything becomes very solid and stable. There is very little movement of the rack when driving over broken pavement and uneven roads. The bike is very secure. The wheel hoops are substantial, the straps are robust. The product works well. 221995
So far, so good. I've driven with this holding 27.5 and 24 inch mountain bikes for about 20 miles. The rack was simple to assemble and once I got the trailer hitch installed, it was a piece of cake to put on the car (2014 Fiesta Hatchback). The hatch can be opened without having to move the vertical bar as long as there are no bikes on it. The only issue I have so far are the straps that go over the wheels, they're velcro. I would have preferred the rubber ones but we'll see how these hold up. 222608

I received the bike rake on Thursday, and we used it on Saturday. The instructions were clear, the product did exactly what I wanted it to do,,,I can honestly say I would recommend this product, I would recommend the shipper, and the etrailer company. its kinda refreshing to have a company do what they said they would. Well done keep up the good work, hopefully Directv and a few credit card companies can look at this company and take some notes. PEACE out ! 95602
Just what I needed. I use this bike rack to carry my beach cruiser and BMX style bikes with me. It is easy to assemble and easy to install. Loading bikes on-and-off is fairly easy as well. Those are the 'pros'. The only 'con' I have for this rack is that the adjustment knobs have to be turned really hard to get them completely tight to where they wont move, its not impossible just a little tough. But once they are in place you know your bikes are secure. 3933
by: Mary D01/19/2012
Received my order quickly, very pleased with my purchase. Straight forward instructions and assembled quickly. Took 2 bikes out today, a trek and my cruiser. They are both girls bikes so I had the trek stabilizer turned upside down and used as a hook. Worked great! I did use a couple bungees for insurance, but overall, I am very pleased. Would recommend this product. Also appreciate the friendly customer service. 29925
by: Tony R03/09/2015
We love the new bike rack. The last one we had for many years required me to lift both bikes quite high and securing the one that went closest to the vehicle was a real chore. My wife says that even she can load the bikes on the new one. The only thing that is missing is a second hole that would allow me to insert a lock to the hitch receiver so that the nice new rack does not walk off! 177675
by: Alex Labora09/03/2013
The product is easy to assemble and use. The assembly instructions are a bit off. If you follow the assembly instructions then the bike installation direction needs to be reversed for best results. A tandem will not fit without tinkering. Rack is a bit heavy. It would be nice if it could fold for rear trunk access on a Scion Xb and Xd and similar vehicles. 98004
by: Jeff G07/02/2013
Assembly and installation was easy. Adjusts for any bike size. Bikes fit great. Wish it had a place to lock them in but I think my cable lock will work great for that.center post wobbles a bit but I may remove the spring clip and install a nut and bolt since it is far enough away from my trunk I will have no need to fold it down to get into the trunk. 87165
by: Lisa K03/31/2015
I am impressed with how fast my order arrived. Thank you! The bike rack was a little heavier than I expected but that is not a bad thing. It was very easy to assemble and I like the fact that it is adjustable to fit any size bike. I’m pleased with the purchase and yes, I would recommend the product and this company highly. 181841
Installed quickly and easily with only a couple of socket sizes. Loaded two bikes and drove 45 miles to a park with no problems. Bikes loaded and unloaded easy. Felt comfortable that the carrier would handle them. Appears to be a good quality and sturdy built but would prefer a USA made product over China. 141298

This is the second one of these I have purchased - one was for my husband and me - and one was for my daughter and her husband !! Awesome bike rack - easy install - easy on/off for bikes - we love them - and did I mention the price was definitely right !!!! 190974
by: Joe M06/28/2013
It came in and it looks like it will work fine for our uses. I would only ask that future models allow the long arm that goes into the trailer hitch on the vehicle is able to fold up to decrease the amount of storage space it takes up when it's off the car. 86654
by: Don T.04/04/2011
The rack that we purchased is exactly what we needed. I purchased this rack so that we could use it on a Volvo withan 1&1/4" hitch and also on my truck that has the 2" hitch. It folds neatly for storage and swings out of the way for easy trunk access. 11020
Not bad for the money! I will replace all the pins with bolts to tighten it up. It moves around ALOT!!!! when loaded with the bikes. I will also replace the padding on the retainer hooks with something more substantial. 46923
by: James E.02/11/2012
The bike rack is just the thing that I have been looking for. I havn't used it yet but have assembled it and tried it on the car. Well made and delivered quickly. Thank you for a well made and good looking product. 31526
This is our first time working with etrailer and everything from support to customer service is impeccable. This bike rack is solid and works well to carry and protect our bikes while on the road in our RV. 201689
Easy setup and worked as advertised. Glad I went with the 3 points of contact securing system. Excellent customer service provided by your phone support staff also to assist with my selection. 122044
by: Tom D12/11/2014
I am impress with the bike rack and would recommend it. If I changed any it would be to charge a little more( emphasis ) on little and use a sleeve to reduce size. Good service and product. 164330
by: Kyle S.05/27/2011
Works as advertised. Time will tell how well it holds up, but It has worked well so far. The knobs can be a little difficult to tighten and loosen, but it's not that big of an issue. 15560
Easy to assemble and install. Used it first time this weekend, worked well. Would suggest that straps be included to reduce movement. Bikes seem to be held securely. Well made. 178294
by: James M.06/02/2015
Looks like a great product. Got it installed in about 30 minutes. It appears to be sturdy enough to do the job although we haven't had a chance to go anywhere yet. 199751
by: Joyce P01/13/2016
Product was fairly easy to assemble and is just perfect. Bikes stand up with tires in the racks and it easily holds a woman's bike without an additional crossbar. 235332

I was impressed how it went together havent used it yet I know it will work to my satisfaction Guy 56534
by: Dan Zorovich06/20/2012
The bike rack was very easy to assemble and the quality is very good. When I use it for one bike I leave the hardware for the second bike out to make it shorter. 44970
Easy to put together and use. Would suggest having an option for a locking hitch and ask for hitch size. But other than that we look forward to years of use. 146394
by: Victor P10/01/2014
Very good bike rack. Keeps bikes secure. Minimal movement. Not like other bike racks you see on the freeway where the bike looks like its about to fly off. 153887
by: Sheryl M.08/08/2012
Dealing with etrailor was nice. Product arrived quickly. Directions were a little difficult to follow. Watch an instruction video first. 51012
Love the fact that you don't have to use bungee cords to hold bike in place. Fit 2 29er mtb's with ease on the rack. Excellent product. 157099
by: Frank P07/26/2012
This was exactly what I needed and I received it within a week. Very easy to put together and the videos helped in using it correctly. 49447
by: Tony Adams07/07/2015
This works quite well for my purposes, easy to install and use. I'd rank it a bit higher if there was less play in the mechanism. 210065
by: Jim O08/22/2012
For the price this is great. It works just fine and compared to the $450 rack I was looking at this is the best deal !!!!!!!!!! 52630
by: Herb D11/16/2012
I received the order in a very timely manner. The order was also shipped in a very good container with no damage to items. 59490
Works well, but is a bit heavy. I had to install washers on the knobs to be able to turn them enough to secure the bikes. 59757
by: Larry L.10/03/2012
Assembled easily, take down also easy, one of the cushion pads, on upper hold down, starting to tear, on initial trip. 56264

Very happy with unit. Installed on my 1999 chev van and mounted bikes. Everything is working well. Thanks 215659
