Yakima Hitch Ski Mount Review

Video Transcript for Yakima Hitch Ski Mount Review

Today we are going to show you part number Y02418 from Yakima. This is their Hitch Ski Mount. What this does is, it adds ski and snowboard capacity to your hitch-mounted bicycle rack. It comes with adjustable lower arms that grab everything from thin snowboards to thick skis. It also comes with a little bit longer arms than normal for todays extra-wide skis, and it easily attaches to your existing Yakima hitch mount, except for the KingPin 2, and most other hitch racks. This product easily attaches to your existing Yakima hitch rack, including most other hitch racks, except for the two-bike DoubleDown.

We are actually going to install this on a DoubleDown 5. We will give you a better idea of how it works and we will load it up with some skis. All right, we will go ahead and install this on our rack here. It installs just like a bicycle would on your rack here. Let us go ahead and just do it. Put it on the cradles and just strap it down into place. First, you want to loosen up the bottom clamp. Just undo the screws until they stop. Use your room to slide your skis into, because this does not come off.

Then, undo your top clamp here. And again, just slide your skis in there and then clamp it shut. Get them into position the way you want them to and then just go ahead and pull your top clamp into place and lock it down. You may have to tighten it up just a little bit, and cinch it down into place. And you also have a key lock here to make sure they do not go anywhere. Once you have that done, then go ahead and clamp down the bottom clamp. And there you have it for part number Y02418 from Yakima, the Hitch Ski Mount.

  • Recommended Hitch Ski Rack To Carry 4 Pairs of Skis on 2012 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon
  • If you already have a Thule or Yakima hitch bike rack that is compatible with the Thule Tram Ski Rack # TH9033 or the Yakima Ski Racks # Y02418, you could use either of these carriers. The compatible bike racks are listed on the product pages. I have linked all the hitch ski and snowboard racks we have available.

  • Ski Carrier Adapter Recommendation that Fits a Rhode Gear Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack
  • You may actually be able to use the Yakima HitchSki Snowboard and Ski Carrier, # Y02418. I did a test fit on the Rhode Gear Highway 4 Bike Carrier and the 2 are compatible. As long as you have this bike rack you can use the HitchSki. You would need to make sure the bike rack cradles are turn inward and you will have to turn the straps around to attach them to the bike rack, but it will work. I took a picture showing the 2 together. The Thule Hitch Mounted Bike Rack Ski Carrier Adapter...

  • Ski Rack Adapter for a Schwinn 4 Bike Hitch Bike Rack
  • The Yakima HitchSki, # Y02418, snowboard and ski carrier for hitch mounted bike racks that you referenced is designed to work on a two arm, 4 bike, hitch mounted bike rack that has Anti-Sway cradles and straight arms. If your Schwinn 4 bike rack has similar anti-sway cradles, straight arms that are no more than 24 inches wide and cradles that are adjustable on the arms, you should have no problems using the Hitch Ski Carrier on your bike rack. If your bike rack has curved arms similar...

  • Will the Yakima HitchSki # Y02418 Fit on the Yakima DoubleDown 4 Bike Rack # Y02424
  • Yes, I can confirm that the Yakima HitchSki Snowboard and Ski Carrier, item # Y02418, can be used with the Yakima DoubleDown 4 Bike Rack, item # Y02424. We have install instructions for the HitchSki on our site for you to review, see link. We have an online video review of the HitchSki and it is installed on a BigHorn rack in the video. This rack will work with all two arm Yakima hitch mount bike racks, except for the KingPin 2, and most other hitch mounted two arm racks. I have also...

  • Availability of 4 Bike Hitch Rack on Jeep Rubicon That Will Allow the Rear Door to Fully Open
  • The Softride Dura Parallelogram Tilting 4 Bike Rack, part # SR26247, is designed to tilt down and away from the rear of the vehicle on vehicles with a rear hatch that opens upwards. The rear door on your Jeep Rubicon is hinged on the passenger side of the vehicle and opens like a regular door from left side to the right side. The Softride Dura Bike Rack would not give you enough clearance for the rear door of your Jeep Rubicon to fully open. I would recommend to look at the Yakima SwingDaddy...

  • Are There Ski Racks Available for Hitch Mounted Applications
  • Both Thule and Yakima make similar racks that will attach to their bike racks. The Thule part # TH9033 will fit quite a number of Thule bike racks. The Yakima part # Y02418 will fit quite a number of Yakima bike racks. If you do not already have a hitch mounted bike rack, you would have to purchase one in order to use the above ski racks. Most of the ski and snowboard racks on the market are built for roof rack applications. Because of the shape and length of the skis and snowboards,...

  • How To Carry Skis and Snowboards On A 2008 Hyundai Veracruz With No Factory Installed Roof Rails
  • The Yakima and the Thule roof racks do need to attach to factory installed raised side rails that run from front to back on a 2008 Hyundai Veracruz GLS. I called both Yakima and Thule and they said they do not have any fitment for a Hyundai Veracruz with a naked roof. If you are wanting to carry skis and snowboards you could go with a Hidden Hitch Class III 2 Inch Hitch # 87439, and use a cargo carrier like the Surco 24x60 Folding Cargo Carrier # 52018F. This cargo carrier is 24 inches...

  • Can Yakima HitchSki Ski Carrier for Hitch Racks # Y02418 Fit Yakima RidgeBack 4-Bike Rack # Y02458
  • The Yakima HitchSki Ski Carrier for Hitch Racks, part # Y02418, is designed to fit a range of dual-arm 4- and 5-bike hitch mount racks. According to my contact at Yakima it will indeed fit their RidgeBack 4-Bike Rack # Y02458. One important consideration is the total weight load on your vehicle and hitch. I suggest you review your vehicle owners manual for information regarding the maximum tongue weight it can handle. You can also check the safety/warning sticker on your hitch to see...

  • Can I Mount the Yakima HitchSki Snowboard and Ski Carrier on Rak n Lok Hitch Mounted Bike Rack
  • I contacted our representative at Yakima, and he informed me that they have not tested the Yakima HitchSki, part # Y02418, on any other brand of bike racks besides Yakima. However, there is a possibility that part # Y02418 will work on your Rak n Lok Hitch Mounted Bike Rack. If your bike rack has dual arms and cradles you can measure the distance between the cradles that would hold your bikes to see if part # Y02418 will mount. The measurement between the 2 bars or the Yakima HitchSki...

  • Ski and Snowboard Adapter for Thule Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Racks
  • Thule has a carrier that will fit your TH912XT bike rack. Take a look at the adapter # TH9033. This carrier is designed to fit certain Thule bike racks, including yours, and it holds 6 pairs of skis or 4 snow boards. I have included a link to a video review for you. The Yakima HitchSki # Y02418 is designed for use with certain Yakima racks and would not be the best fit on a Thule rack. However the space between the 2 bars that fit around the arms of the bike rack is 24 inches.

  • Will Yakima DoubleDown Hitch Mount Bike Rack and HitchSki Ski Carrier Fit 2008 Porsche Cayenne
  • In order to determine if the Yakima DoubleDown bike rack, # Y02424, combined with the HitchSki, # Y02418, will fit your 2008 Porsche Cayenne, you will need to take 1 important measurement. On the trailer hitch on your Cayenne, measure from the center of the hitch pin hole out to the distance required to clear the rear of the vehicle. If that distance is less than 11-1/2 inches, the bike rack and ski carrier will fit. I have included links to the installation details and videos for both...

  • Carrying Snowboards on a Trailer Hitch or Roof Rack for a 2012 Chrysler 200
  • For a trailer hitch for your 2012 Chrysler 200, I recommend the Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24871 because it does not require the use of a stabilization strap for non-trailer loads like the Curt hitch does. I have included a link to the instructions and a video showing a typical installation for you. Because this is a Class I trailer hitch there are only certain bike racks that you can use. The HitchSki, # Y02418, only fits on certain Yakima 4-bike racks, none of which will fit in a Class...

  • To determine if the Yakima SwingDaddy, # Y02464, or any hitch mount rack will clear the spare tire on your 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser, you will need to take one important measurement. Measure from the center of the hitch pin hole straight back to the distance required to clear the spare tire on the vehicle. If the measurement is less than 11 inches then the rack will fit but you will also need a measurement less than 6 inches from the hitch pin hole to the back of the bumper for the lower...

Both of these carriers are designed to work with a hitch mounted hanging bike rack, which will use the cradles of the bike carrier to hold the ski rack.

  • Will a Single Arm Swagman Trailer Hitch Bike Rack work with a Yakima HitchSki Carrier Part # Y02418
  • Since your Swagman has a single-arm such as # S64955, the Yakima HitchSki snowboard and ski carrier wouldn't work out to well because you need a dual-arm hitch bike rack. The one you referenced, # Y02418, will work with Yakima hitch mounted, dual-arm style carriers: BigHorn (4 bike models only) Double Down (4 and 5 bike models only) FlipSide SwingDaddy Ridgeback (4 and 5 bike models only) I added a picture to the right to show you an example of the Yakima HitchSki # Y02418.

  • Will Yakima HitchSki Snowboard And Ski Rack Fit Yakima KingPin 4 Bike Rack
  • I spoke with my contact at Yakima and they told me that the Yakima HitchSki Snowboard and Ski Carrier, part # Y02418 should be able to fit your Yakima KingPin 4 Bike Rack, part # Y02441. They said as long as it is the 4-bike version and the cradles are able to be moved on the arms, the HitchSki should work well for you. I have attached a product review video for the HitchSki you can check out.

  • Fit of Yakima # Y02418 HitchSki Ski Carrier on Softride # SR26247 Dura Parallelogram Bike Rack
  • Although the Yakima # Y02418 HitchSki is designed for use on Yakima's bike racks, there's no reason why you couldn't use it on your Softride Dura # SR26247. The only factor that could prevent fit would be if the arms were further apart than 24 inches. Since the Dura's arms are only about 8-1/2 inches apart, the HitchSki should work great for you.

  • Hanging Bike Rack Recommendation For a Jeep That Clears the Spare Tire and Can Be Used for Skis
  • Unless, you are carrying very light weight bikes, I do not recommend using a hitch extender. Using an extender decreases the tongue weight capacity of your hitch by 50 percent, and it adds an additional flex point. Before choosing a hitch mounted bike rack, you will need to determine how much space you will need to clear the spare tire on your Jeep. I have included a link to one of our helpful articles that explains exactly how to do this. Once you have determined the correct spacing...
