Video Transcript for Swagman 2 Hitch Bike Ball Mount Rack Review
Today we are going to show you part number S64095 from Swagman. This is a 2-bicycle carrier for 1-1/4 and 2-inch trailer hitch receivers. How this bicycle carrier works is that it actually mounts into the ball hole of either/or receiver. It requires a ball with a 3/4-inch shank or you can bolt it to your bumper, also, using a 3/4-inch nut-and-bolt assembly. As you can see here, we have this bicycle rack here actually mounted to the bumper using a 3/4-inch bolt-and-nut assembly to hold it in place. Pretty simple. Again, you can do it like this on your bumper, or you can install this on your ball mount on a 2-inch or 1-1/4 inch receiver hitch.
Construction of this bicycle rack is steel tubing with powder coat on top of it. This carrier will carry two bicycles with one plate holding both of them down in place. And we will demonstrate that here. Go ahead and undo the top handle here and take the plate off. Install your bike, and then the plate goes back on top of it. Go ahead and set your bike on there and balance it if you need to, and then your plate simply goes back on top. All right, and with that your bike is safely ready to go down the road.
What is nice about this bicycle rack is that the cradles are covered with this rubber material. And it also has grooves inside of here to make way for your bicycle cables. And what is nice is there is an opening on the plate and on the bottom plate here so you can put a padlock through to secure it while you are away from the bikes. All right, and there you have it for part number S64095 from Swagman, 2-bike carrier for 1-1/4 and 2-inch trailer hitch receivers.

Great delivery! Ordering and receiving we're a snap. Only draw back is we must buy a new hitch because the hitch ball we have is too big to fit the hole in this one. Otherwise we're looking forward to trying it.
Just what the doctor ordered! This is the best bike rack I have had the pleasure of owning. The instructions were plain and simple, even I could do it. Installation was a breeze, it looks good and works perfectly. The bike is safe and secure when mounted...thanks to the attached locking system. I also use a padlock inserted through the provided hole for double security. Kudos to the customer service representative for her product knowledge and recommendation. 42467
I use this bike rack on a 2011 Toyota Corolla. I carry a mountain bike and a BMX. It is a sturdy, well designed rack that takes up very little space when not in use. Mine came with an extra feature where you can lock the tightening knob. For the money, it's awesome. I'd buy it again in a heart beat.
I also give etrailer 5 stars. Great service. Best price.
Thank you etrailer!33154
This bike hitch is just what I needed to transport my bike to and from the trails! Set up and installation was a snap! Price and delivery was perfect, in fact, etrailer upgraded my shipping choice. I got the rack in three days, THANK YOU! I have already told some of my friends about your web site! I especially like the way the hitch "locks" your bike in, with out crushing the cables running along the top tube, and the optional pad lock hole for added security!20583
The bike rack works great with two bikes. To keep the bikes stable, used tie wraps to secure both bike's pedals together and a bungee cord to secure the front wheel on the bike closest to the truck. In the photos you will see the Women's bike front wheel is secured by the bike adapter bar.
There are many different types of bike racks. Some attach to a hitch, others mount on the vehicles trunk. Some tilt, some swing out to the side. The good thing about most racks is that you can install them yourself, though a dealer that sells bike racks can install one for you.

We do have a couple of Ball Hole Mount bike racks, like the Swagman S64095 you were looking at, but they do not have the tilting ability. They would allow use of different size frames, but those cradle types would not be as secure as individual cradles.
If you were to add a hitch to your Ranger, there are several hitch mounted bike racks that will tilt-down or swing out. Some tilt-down racks may not come down far enough for a truck bed tail gate.

For a 2 bike rack on your 2007 Chevy Malibu LS I would recommend the Swagman Trailhead Folding 2 Bike Rack, # S63360. It will work in your 1-1/4 inch hitch and has the tilting feature that allows you to access the trunk of your vehicle.
It has dual arms which will give better stability and the arms will fold down when not being used. It has a maximum weight capacity of 100 lbs.

I have a couple of Swagman bike racks, part # S64095, and part # S64101, that attach to the hitch ball hole on the bumper of your 1993 Ford Explorer, but they are not going to be easily attached and removed. It will require the removing and installing of the 1-7/8 hitch ball every time you remove or install the bike rack on the bumper. They both require the ball hole in the bumper to be 3/4 inch in diameter. I am including installation instructions for both of the Swagman bike racks.

The 2 Bike Carrier, # S64095, is best used on a bumper that can accept a ball with a 3/4 inch shank like in the video I have included. If your 2005 BMW X3 fits this description, then it should work for you.

For a good bike rack that will not break the bank and still has a lot of useful features, go with the Swagman Trailhead, # S63360. It has anti-sway cradles and the ability to tilt down giving you greater acces view full answer...
There are a couple of options for you to carry a bike a rack and tow a trailer at the same time. First, you can use a towing rack. The rack you have referenced, # S64095, would be best used on a ball that mounts to the bumper of a vehicle. Instead, I recommend the Swagman XP, # S64955. It fits around a ball mount shank.
A couple of things to note about this method are the ball mount length and the tongue weight. This bike rack requires that the ball mount have a distance of 10 inches from th view full answer...

The benefit to this one is that you do not have to have a bumper mounted hitch ball to install the hitch. You will need a minimum of view full answer...
Using a quality trunk-mounted bike rack like the Thule Raceway part # TH9001 would be a cost-effective way of transporting two bikes without the expense of installing a hitch on your Sienna. Rather than the buckles and strap other racks use to attach to the vehicle, the Raceway uses 4 ratcheting cables that allow the rack to be installed or removed in seconds.
If you would prefer a hitch mounted bike rack, hitches are available for your Sienna. The Curt Class III receiver, part # C13105 is ou view full answer...
The absolute best rack for you would be the Softride Hydraulic-Assist Dura Bike Rack # SR26321. This rack tilts and lowers in a level manner so that the arms of the rack are lowered to allow bikes to be loaded and unloaded much easier. This rack also has a hydraulic assist to make it easier to lift the rack and your bike back into position once it is loaded. Check out the picture I attached that show how it lowers.

Using a trailer hitch is the best and safest way to transport bikes on vehicle. For your 2004 Honda Pilot I recommend going with a 2 inch hitch because they have a higher capacity and you will have more options for bike racks when compared to a 1-1/4 inch hitch.
For a trailer hitch I recommend the Draw-Tite hitch # 75599. I have included a link to a video showing a typical installation and a link to the installation instructions.

The Swagman bike Rack # S64095 is designed to be clamped to the bumper on a truck that has a towing ball hole in the center. It will not fit your VW.
