The contemporary, low-profile design; silver paint finish; and folding arms are just a few reasons why the Yakima KingJoe Pro is an exceptional trunk-mounted bike carrier for owners of sedans, hatchbacks, minivans and SUVs.
A QuickTrigger hub system takes the strain and frustration out of fitting the rack to your Chevrolet TrailBlazer. Just turn the dials to adjust the padded rack feet, and they conform to the contours of your Chevrolet TrailBlazer, providing solid footing for the rack.
The KingJoe Pro attaches to your Chevrolet TrailBlazer with a built-in, six-strap system. The straps' coated hooks are labeled to make setup a snap, and the hooks ensure that the bike rack is properly anchored to your Chevrolet TrailBlazer.
The narrowly spaced arms of the bike rack help with loading bikes of varying shapes and sizes. The arms fold down for storage when you depress a red tab mounted on the inside of each arm. Because the arms adjust independently of the rack base, you can ensure that your bikes will have a level and stable ride no matter what Chevrolet TrailBlazer the rack is mounted on.
The bike rack also includes StableCradle anti-sway cradles that hold your bikes securely in place with rubber straps. The cradles prevent the bikes from rocking back and forth during transport and also help keep them from hitting your Chevrolet TrailBlazer.
KingJoe Pro comes with glass hatch hooks for installing the unit on Chevrolet TrailBlazers with glass hatchbacks or gate mounts and on other hard-to-fit Chevrolet TrailBlazers. These anchors replace the standard strap-and-hook assemblies on your bike rack and mount through the hatch opening of your Chevrolet TrailBlazer.

Video Transcript for Yakima KingJoe Pro Trunk Bike Rack Review - 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt
Today on our 2010 Chevy Cobalt, well be test fitting the Yakima Kingjoe Pro 2 Trunk Mounted Carrier, part number Y02624.Now to begin our test fit, we'll set the carrier onto the vehicle. We'll use the gray knobs on the left and right hand side of the carrier to adjust it to fit the vehicle. Once weve established this position, well put the top hooks to the top part of the trunk, the side hooks to the side part of the trunk, and the bottom hooks to the bottom part of the trunk. Now you may need to open the trunk to fit the bottom hooks in position.We'll then tighten down the straps to secure the carrier to the vehicle. We'll then secure the excess strap and were ready to load our bike. We'll flip out the two red levers on the inside arms of the carrier to swing the cradle arms out.
Note that the cradle arms do need to be level or slightly angled up. Once weve established this position, we'll lock them into place, undo the cradle straps, set the bike into the frame cradles and secure them with the straps.That completes todays test fit for the Yakima Kingjoe Pro 2 Trunk Mounted Carrier, part number Y02624 on our 2010 Chevy Cobalt.

We became serious bicyclists last year when we pedaled over a 1,000 miles, mostly local. This year we wanted to do weekend getaways to experience different trails which required driving to and from each location. I went to shops in our area/scoured the Internet, but could not find a bike rack that would accommodate our 2005 Toyota Celica GT, so to load them into the car we had to dismantle the seats and front wheels, then do a lot of finagling to get them both to fit inside the hatchback’s trunk area. It was time-consuming and frustrating, with the bikes and the car getting scratched up in the process and then fighting to get the wheels balanced on their forks without rubbing on the brake pads once we got them back out. The last straw was last weekend when we took them to the Ozarks—the car was loaded with bikes, bike parts, luggage, clothes and was a huge mess. Never again without a rack.
The day we returned home, I luckily found your Website. I called and one of your representatives who suggested buying the Kakima KingJoe Pro. The rack was delivered very quickly—one day—and came out of the box already assembled. Now for the real test—would it fit the sloped glassed back and around the spoiler of the Celica GT when others would not? YES! Six straps secured the rack very nicely, with fitted rubber pads that protected the glass hatchback and the metal trunk. My husband is “mechanically-challenged” so we took it to our mechanic and bike shop and they all agreed that the rack seemed safe and secure. The sweetest part is that we can place the bikes on the fitted frame-holders, strap them down and go without a big hassle.
We are anticipating many nice biking adventures away from home this summer and are grateful to eTrailer for making it possible without a lot of unnecessary fuss and stress. Thanks!!
Easy to setup and configure specific to my car. Excellent instructions specific to my car. I've used this style bike rack in the past and that one doesn't even compare to this. The Yakima KingJoe Pro 2 is extremely sturdy and smart. Excellent stability. Thank you! Looking forward to many more trips.79144
DIrections were easy to understand. The product was easy to install. Had a little difficulty with attaching the bike due to getting the rubber straps to hook. All in all great product and great service. I have included a pic of it on our HHR.74606
I ordered a Yakima KingJoe Pro 2 Bike Rack. The product arrived on time and was exactly as described. Shipping was free and the price was cheaper than local "outdoor stores". I have test-mounted it on my Scion Xb and look forward to better weather when I can take my bike and my girlfriends to the mountains, beaches or local greenways to ride. Very happy with my purchase.61914
This is a very well made, sturdy bike rack! I needed something that worked on a hatchback, which this does. I was impressed that the distance needed to set the arms in advance is listed for every car model that this rack fits! The instructions were also car specific as to where to best attach straps and where to place the bottom of the back. This was incredibly helpful. My one trip so far with the bike went very smoothly.
Problems I had: 1) For the car straps to fit all cars, they are very, very long. The first time I put the rack on, there was too much strap to work with and it took forever -- especially since I was also balancing the bike on the back of the hatchback at the same time. However, after the first ride I trimmed the straps and seared the ends to make them more manageable.
2) The straps have nothing to keep them from pulling all the way through the buckle, in which case you have to rethread the buckle (while you are balancing the rack). After I trimmed the ends, I put metal bull dog paper fasteners on them so they won't go through the buckle. I will look for something that is plastic for long term use though.
3. Because of the design of the buckle, I felt that I had trouble pulling the car straps as tightly as I would like. One has to maintain pressure on a lever inside the buckle with a finger, and the finger seems to get in the way of really tightening the strap. Perhaps I just have to work with this for awhile.
4, And finally, the reason I am not giving this rack a 5 star rating is because I found the rubbery anti-sway straps impossible to use. They are too thick, the holes in them are too small, and the knobs to put the holes over are too big. In addition to not being able to pull these straps tightly enough around the bike to be really secure, I was barely, barely able to get a strap hole over the plastic knob on the cradle before I left. And. . . when I arrived at my destination, I was completely unable to detach the strap from the knob. I eventually had to cut through the straps with a jack knife. I have since removed all of the anti-sway straps and will simply criss-cross the 12 in. Softride straps E-trailer also sells. (Some of the rubbery anti-sway straps had to pulled off knobs rather than cut off, and this was painful as they recoiled and stung my hands.)
I did write to Yakima and ask why they put such straps on the bike. They said these straps are for increased security in attaching the bike to the rack. Well, if you have the hands of a gorilla and are 6 feet tall (to get good leverage) these straps will work for you and your bike will be very secure.
All this being said, I consider the car strap and anti-sway strap issues to be minor. I will simple keep the Softride velcro straps attached to the bike rack when not in use so they are easy to find when needed.
Just got the rack and like it so far. Solid feel to it. The padding is substantial. Directions for putting it on the car are clear. Easy to put on and take off. As someone mentioned, the rubber straps for attaching the bike to the carrier are stiff and a little difficult to use, but if you push with your thumb with one hand while stretching the rubber with the other, it goes on easier. I'd rather they were stiff than too elastic and able to break. I am using a couple of bungee cords instead of the 2 free straps to attached the lower bike frame
to the carrier because the bungees go on and off very easily. Overall, nice looking carrier and easy the use. Also, liked dealing with etrailer.com. Fast shipping and the price was right.50983
There is a solution for carrying bikes with your 2007 Subaru Outback Wagon, but none of the trunk mount bike racks are a safe fit for the vehicle. What you can do is install a trailer hitch and use a hitch mount bike rack.
If you need a trailer hitch, I recommend a Class III Hidden Hitch, # 87446, because the 2 inch receiver will afford you more options for bike racks. I have included some informational links for you.

The Yakima KingJoe Pro 2 Bike Rack, # Y02624, would be a great choice for both your 2008 Honda Fit and your 2009 Toyota Prius. I posted a photo showing the KingJoe Pro 2 on a Fit, and a standard KingJoe rack on a Prius, which is very similar to the Pro 2 model, see link.

You can determine the material of the hood, possibly, if a magnet will stick to it. That would indicate it is some sort of steel or other metal to which a magnet would stick. The Thule and Yakima fit guides do not have any installation notes on a 2004 Nissan Maxima with a fiberglass or composite trunk lid so if they are out there, they are not excluded.
If you determine that you want to go ahead with a trunk mount rack, keep in mind that most of the weight will actually be on the top tier of view full answer...
The Yakima KingJoe Pro 2, # Y02624, is a fit for a 2008 Ford Escape hybrid, but any trunk mount bike rack could potentially set off the back up alert. However, keep in mind that it will only go off, if at all, when you are in reverse.

Given the small amount of space between the back glass and the rear edge of the trunk, it is unlikely that a trunk mount bike rack will fit if there is a spoiler on the trunk. The racks we carry have been tested for fit on a tC but not with a spoiler.
You would need to install a trailer hitch, # 24827, and use a hitch mounted bike rack. Because this is a Class I trailer hitch, the bike rack will have to be compatible with a Class I and you are limited to carrying a maximum of 2 bikes.

Generally speaking, if the straps can pass beneath the spoiler and secure safely to the vehicle, you can use the KingJoe Pro, # Y02624, on your 2012 Land Rover Evoque. If any part of the bike rack, including the straps, are touching and putting stress on the spoiler, a trunk mount bike rack cannot be used.
Make sure that the vehicle and the bike rack are clean and free of dirt/debris before mounting the rack to avoid scratching the vehicle. A coat of wax where the bike rack will contact the view full answer...
According to our friends at Yakima, the KingJoe Pro you referenced, part # Y02624 will indeed work on your 2010 BMW X5.
When attached to the vehicle, the weight capacity of the rack is 30 lbs per bike, and you will want to be sure NOT to use the rear wiper while the rack is in place, or it will be damaged.

We have numerous trunk mount bike racks that will fit the 2009 Honda Civic Coupe. I have included a link to them for you. If you are looking for a 2 bike rack, I recommend the Thule Raceway 2, # TH9001 or for a 3 bike # TH9002.
