3-In-1 Bike Rack

The Pro Series Q-Slot is a triple threat when it comes to carrying your bikes. This platform-style, hitch-mounted rack is 3 bike racks in 1 tidy package. The base rack can be used as a 2-bike carrier for 2" hitches or - with the included add-on installed - as a 4-bike carrier for 2" hitches. The add-on can also be used as a stand-alone 2-bike rack for 1-1/4" hitches, making this rack perfect for people with 2 cars that have different hitch sizes.


Multiple Configurations

You can use either of the 2-bike carriers the old-fashioned way - just slide it into your 1-1/4" or 2" hitch and secure it with the appropriate anti-rattle hitch pin. For full 4-bike carrying capacity, slide the shank of the 1-1/4" rack into the front of the 2" rack and secure it with the 1/2" pin.


Easy Bike Loading

The Q-Slot is super easy to load, even when used in the 4-bike configuration. The rack has 2 upright masts with frame hooks that adjust independently of one another to hold 4 bikes of different - or identical - styles and sizes, and they eliminate bike-to-bike contact during travel. The upright masts can be folded down by releasing bail pins at the bases, allowing you to load bikes onto the rack without interference. Folding the masts down also provides easier access to your vehicle's rear cargo area.


Cushioned Frame Hooks

Once your bikes are in place on the rack, simply slide the cushioned hooks down snugly over the bike frames and tighten the hand knobs. These hooks are staggered and operate independently of each other so that you can carry bikes of different sizes, and they are padded so that they won't scratch or scuff the paint finish on your bikes.


Adjustable Wheel Hoops

The versatile rack has adjustable wheel hoops that enable you to carry bikes of different lengths as well. These wheel hoops adjust with hand knobs and slide along the bike rack frame to accommodate your specific bike lengths. The hoops include straps with hook-and-loop closures (similar to Velcro) to secure your bike wheels in place.


Excellent Ground Clearance

The rack features a unique dual rise shank (the base rack and add-on rack both have a rise) for ultimate ground clearance. These rise shanks provide great clearance when the racks are used independently and superior clearance when the racks are used together in the 4-bike configuration.


Convenient Storage

The horizontal bars can be folded up for storage when the bike rack is not in use. Simply pull the bail pins at the base, fold the arms up, and re-insert the pins.

Video Transcript for Pro Series Q-Slot 2 and 4 Bike Hitch Bike Rack Review

Today, we'll be reviewing the Pro Series Q-Slot Platform bike rack, part #PS63138. This is a hitch-mounted bike rack that can carry 2-4 bikes with 2 inch hitches when needed with an add-on rack. The add-on rack can be used separately for 1 inch and 1/4 inch hitches. The Q-slot has cushioned hooks that slide up and down independently on the masts. This helps hold bikes of different shapes and sizes in place. There's also some padding on the hooks which protects the bike's frame from scratches. There's wheel-mounts with straps that slide back and forth, which will adjust for varying bike lengths and secure the wheels in place. The masts pull down for bike loading or to access your rear cargo area. The wheel-mount arm folds up, as well, for storage after a trip. The shank of this bike rack has a dual rise, which provides more ground clearance and has an anti-rattle bolt. It has rear reflectors, which help with making the q-slot more visible at night, and it has a black powder-coat finish to make it rust resistant. Now that we've gone over some features of the q-slot, let's show you how it's installed. We'll start in its 4-bike configuration, and slide the rack into the hitch of our vehicle. Remember, the 4-bike configuration is only for 2 inch hitches. We'll line up our pin holes, then we'll install our anti-rattle bolt with the washer. Now, we'll take the provided wrench and tighten it down and place the clip on the other side. With that done, we'll pull these pins here, which will release the wheel-mount arms down. We'll repeat this for all arms. Next, we'll show you how to pull down the masts of the q-slot.

We'll remove this pin at the base and gently let them tip away from the vehicle. As you can see, we now have full access to the cargo area. As mentioned earlier, the q-slot has cushioned hooks, which hold down your bikes. To adjust them, we'll loosen these knobs, which will allow the hooks to move freely. The wheel mounts also have these knobs that, when loosened, will allow them to adjust. The wheel mounts also have this hook and loop strap which wraps around the wheel and keeps it in place during travel. With all of our arms folded out, we're ready to place our bikes on them. We'll place our first bike on the q-slot, first adjusting the wheel mounts into position. Next, we'll place our hooks into position on the frame. Now, we'll move back down to the wheel, take our hook and loop straps and secure the wheels. We'll repeat this process with the rest of our bikes. Now, we'll show you how to make our 4 bike rack into the two separate bike racks.

We'll loosen up the anti-rattle bolt and pull the inch and 1/4 shank out, and place that into our other vehicle's hitch. Next we'll repeat the installation steps to load a bike on it. That will do it for the review of the Pro-Series bike rack, part #PS63138. .

I waited to write a review until this bike rack was well tested. I have used it now to carry two bikes on the front receiver of my Jeep Rubicon and with well over 2000 miles of use I have had zero problems and nothing but good to say about this rack. When I carry four bikes I carry the other two on my back receiver with a 2" x 1 1/4" reducer also purchased from etrailer. When my daughter and husband want to carry bikes, they use the 1" 1/4" rack on the back of their Fusion with a hitch I purchased from etrailer. Through all the miles and rain, I have never had any part of the rack loosen up or become inoperable. I overcame the "no lock" problem by simply drilling out the pins to 1/4 inch and using standard Reese locks. It does help to carry a 1/2" ratchet with the appropriate socket to tighten the "no rattle" bolts. I have some wear on one of the straps from riding against the spokes, but that is my fault for not being more careful when loading. Driving with the bike in front does not impair my vision like it looks from outside the drivers seat and this way I can control how close I pull up behind someone. When the bikes are in the back, I cannot prevent someone from rear-ending me and taking the bikes with it. Definitely not for night driving though, unless you have extra lights, which I do not have yet. This rack is exactly what I was looking for and well worth the money spent. 149581

After scouring the web for the right product for our family, I came upon the 2+2 and it seemed perfect; 2 adult riders and 2 very small children who are still in a trailer but will soon need their own bikes carried around. The rack is heavy, feels well built and despite some of the reviews I read, the handles don't feel cheap/likely to break. Assembly took about 20 minutes with a 3 year-olds help. We took the rack out for a test as a 2 bike rack: 45 minute drive, unload at the park, ride around a bit, reload and 45 minutes home. None of the handles backed off, bikes were as we secured them when we got home. There was no noise associated with the rack, overall i'm very pleased so far. The only complaint i have is the lack of a lock on the hitch. I used a cable-lock through one of the holes in the rack, but you can only get a small diameter cable through there. 178880

Easy to assemble - apart from you need a long reach socket which is not included so needed a quick trip to Home Depot. Would be good to include a tool to allow complete assembly with the package. Once together easy to fit to the car and adjusted completely for 4 bikes in 10 minutes. All fittings seem strong and well put together. Yet to drive the car with the 4 bikes mounted which will be the interesting part. No lock included but bought a 30ft cable and lock so can thread through all parts of the bikes and lock onto my tow hitch for security. So far, think it's a great product for the money. 144038

Comments

Is there anyway you can lock the rack to the 2 receiver instead of using just the provided cotter pin?

comment by: Armando - 01/12/2014

I called up my contact at ProSeries and he confirmed they do not offer a locking version of the anti-rattle bolt or have a way to lock it. It is possible that there are padlocks out there with a small enough shackle to fit in the cotter pin hole, but we do not have any that small.

Patrick B - 1/23/2014



Comments

Oh wow. Excellent question Armando. So it would be pretty easy for someone to just remove the cotter pin and walk away with the rack?

comment by: John - 04/07/2014

The potential thieft would need a wrench as well. A threaded bolt is used to snug the rack in the hitch and the cotter pin is used make sure the bolt could not back all the way out. ProSeries does not have a locking option for this rack. For a similar rack that will lock, check part # HR1400

I have ben looking for a good bike rack that would fit 4 beach cruisers. Man I found it. This is a nice big platform bike carrier and fits 4 beach cruisers without beating them up. It assembles easy, folds up nice, is easy to store and you can't beat the price or phenomenal service that that etrailer provides. I would recommend this product to anyone asking. 182269

This is the second time I have ordered this bike rack. Not only is it a great rack for carrying all of our bikes but my fiancée and I were in a rear end collision and the insurance adjuster said ""if this rack was not on your car the damage would have been much worse". So we plan on keeping it on the car all the time. Thanks e-trailer for such a great product. 172472

Heavy duty construction well worth the money. A little on the heavy side for ease of handling but better than flimsy. I thought the straps to hold the tires in place could have been a better quality to match the rest of the unit. Very pleased. 190460

Review from a similar Pro Series Q-Slot in Hitch Bike Racks


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

Review from a similar Pro Series Q-Slot in Hitch Bike Racks


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

Review from a similar Pro Series Q-Slot in Hitch Bike Racks


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

Review from a similar Pro Series Q-Slot in Hitch Bike Racks


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

Review from a similar Pro Series Q-Slot in Hitch Bike Racks


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

Review from a similar Pro Series Q-Slot in Hitch Bike Racks


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

Review from a similar Pro Series Q-Slot in Hitch Bike Racks


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

This rack is adequate but not excellent. I made two trips to Florida and back, one in 2012 and one in 2013. I used rope and straps to reduce some of the sway and wobble but here is where I particularly recommend the ropes or straps. The tightening knob on the hook that goes down over the crossbar of a bicycle needs be tight but I WOULDNT RELY JUST ON ITS TIGHTNESS to secure the bicycle on the rack especially on a long trip. If you get this rack, I would use ropes or straps to make sure the hook remains in place even if the knob should loosen.

Review from a similar Pro Series Q-Slot in Hitch Bike Racks


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

Review from a similar Pro Series Q-Slot in Hitch Bike Racks


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

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

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

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

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

  • 4-Bike Rack Recommendation for Use on the Back of a 5th Wheel Trailer
  • The bikes racks that are rated for use on the back of a motor home or 5th wheel are built specifically to withstand the extreme twisting forces found at the rear of such vehicles. For the same reason that the rear-most seats on a roller coaster or school bus get a rougher ride than those in the front, a bike carrier mounted at the rear of a 5th wheel will be subjected to forces that would potentially destroy a carrier intended for use on a standard passenger vehicle.
