Note: This dual-arm rack reduces the need for a bike frame adapter bar (sold separately) to mount a children's, women's, or alternative frame bicycle. However, to mount certain bikes or to keep your bike level on the rack, a bike adapter bar may be required. Most step-through bikes, dual-suspension bikes, and small children's bikes will require a bike adapter bar.


Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Bike Rack on Vehicle

Don't let your spoiler spoil your fun. The Over-the-Top bike rack lets you carry 2 bikes on the back of your vehicle without the fear of the rack's mounting straps or frame damaging your spoiler. And it works great for traditional vehicle trunks too.


High-Rise Frame for Vehicles with Spoilers

Many trunk-mounted bike racks will not fit a vehicle that has a spoiler because the rack's mounting straps will make contact with - and cause damage to - the spoiler. The Over-the-Top is designed to provide adequate clearance to accommodate most spoilers - particularly those found on newer SUVs, minivans, and hatchbacks. The high-rise frame extends up and over the top of your trunk or hatch, and you can attach the top 2 straps at angles that keep them from making contact with your spoiler.


With multiple mounting options, you can attach the straps to your vehicle's hatch, trunk, roof rack crossbars, or raised roof-rack side rails. If your hatchback has a spoiler, then the Over-the-Top is the bike transport solution for you.


Hook Attachment on Naked Roof or Standard Trunk

Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Bike Rack Naked Roof Attachment

If your vehicle has a naked roof, use the standard straps attached to the upper frame of the bike rack. Just secure the rubber-coated metal hooks to your trunk and adjust the tension of the straps with the cam buckles.


Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Bike Rack on Standard Car Trunk

To attach the rack to a standard trunk with or without a spoiler, just fold down the high-rise frame and rest it on your trunk lid. Then secure the rack with the standard hook attachments.


D-Ring Strap Attachment for Roof Rack or Side Rails

Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Bike Rack Roof Rack Attachment

If your vehicle's roof has crossbars or raised side rails, use the included D-ring straps to attach the Over-the-Top to the roof.


Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Bike Rack Roof Rack Attachment

First, position the included canvas pads between the D-ring straps and the rails or crossbars on your roof, and then wrap the straps around the bars.


Then replace the standard straps on the upper frame of the bike rack with the included quick-connect straps.


Connect the D-rings on the roof rack straps to the hooks on the quick-connect straps, and then adjust the tension of the straps.


Fold the built-in canvas pads around the straps and hooks to protect your roof from scratches and scuffs.


Hatch Anchor Attachment

Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Bike Rack Hatch Attachment

If your vehicle doesn't have a place to anchor the top 2 straps, use the included hatch anchors. With the trunk open, thread the hatch anchors through the gap between the trunk and your vehicle's roof, placing the anchors inside your vehicle and the D-rings on the roof. Then close the hatch.


Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Bike Rack Hatch Attachment

Next, replace the standard straps on the upper frame of the bike rack with the included quick-connect straps. Then connect the D-rings on the hatch anchors to the hooks on the quick-connect straps. Built-in canvas pads keep the hooks and D-rings from scratching your vehicle's roof. Cam buckles let you adjust the tension of the straps.


Adjustment Hubs and Base Strap Attachment System

Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Bike Rack Adjustment Hubs

To fit the rack to your vehicle, use 4 of the interlocking hubs with quick-release levers. Two of these hubs let you quickly adjust the position of the base to ensure that the rack is seated properly on your bumper, trunk, or hatch. The other 2 hubs let you adjust the angle of the high-rise fame.


Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Bike Rack Strap Attachment to Vehicle

Four sturdy vinyl straps with rubber-coated metal hooks let you mount the rack to your vehicle. Just loosely position the straps around the base of your trunk or hatch door. Flip the levers up to open the adjustment hubs and rotate the rack's base to the desired position. Then line up the teeth on each hub, push the levers down, and rotate the levers until the hubs are snug. Repeat this process to adjust the rack's high-rise frame, making sure that there is plenty of clearance between your spoiler and the rack.


Once the bike frame is adjusted as needed, you can tighten down the straps. Tensioners on the rack's bottom 2 straps ensure a snug fit at the base. Four foam pads on the rack's base and two on the upper frame help protect your car's finish from scratches and abrasions.


Adjustable Dual Arms

Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Bike Rack Arms

This dual-arm rack supports your bikes better than a single-arm rack, and with this style of rack, it's less likely that you'll need an adapter bar to carry women's, children's, and alternative frame bikes. However, an adapter bar (HRBA-PRO - sold separately) may still be required for some bikes. The adjustment hubs on the arms have quick-release levers so that you can move the arms up or down - independent of the base and each other - to ensure that your bikes are level during transport.


Anti-Sway Cradles

Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Bike Rack Anti-Sway Cradle

Rubber anti-sway cradles with straps firmly grip your bike's frame at 3 points, helping to prevent front-to-back sway. This minimizes bike-to-bike and bike-to-car contact during transit. The cradles rotate and slide along the bike rack arms, so you can easily adjust and space them based on the type and number of bikes you're transporting. And you can use the integrated safety strap to reduce the movement of handlebars and wheels during transport.


Folding Design

Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Bike Rack Folded Up on Vehicle

The Over-the-Top's arms can be folded down against your vehicle, and when it's not on your car, the rack can be folded flat for compact storage.


A security strap and a cable lock (sold separately) are recommended to deter theft of the rack and your bikes. The strap will secure the rack to your vehicle, and the cable lock will secure your bikes to the rack.

Video Transcript for Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 Bike Rack Review

Well take the strap and seat it in between the rear hatch and the back of the vehicle. Well slide it up and rest the ring on top of the vehicle and repeat the same steps for the other hatch strap.Now, with both straps in position we can simply shut the hatch door. Now with the straps in place, you can pull them out and theyll pinch between the hatch and the back of the vehicle to prevent the strap from coming out. The second way you can attach the bike rack to the vehicle is by the side rail mount. We have these adapter straps here, which we will slide on the underside of the side rail, pad side down. Theres this little tab on one end of the strap. Well take the D-ring and insert it into a 90 degree angle through the other D-ring. We can pull it tight. This pad will rest on the side rail to prevent any scratches and abrasions and the hooks from the bike rack will attach here.Now, the other way you can attach it if youre not comfortable with attaching it to your side rails are the cross bar mounts. Now youll use the same strap which you would use to attach to the side rail to the cross bar, which youll do the same exact way. Go over here remembering the pad side down, inserting the D-ring at a 90 degree angle into the other D-ring and then pulling it tight. Now if you were actually going to install the strap onto the crossbar you want to make sure that the straps are inward of the connection point onto the side rails, but just for this demonstration purpose well just show you how this attaches and then the hook of the bike rack will then hook onto the D-ring and then pull tight giving you a strong hold preventing contact from your spoiler.Now keep in mind when using the straps on the side rail of the vehicle or on your crossbars the straps will need to be symmetrical, so one on each side. Were now ready to install it onto the vehicle. Well flip out the three black levers on each side of the bike rack. Now well go ahead and set the bottom part onto the bumper. Well then unfold the larger part as well as the smaller part of the bike rack which the smaller part will need to be as far up on the rear hatch as possible to give us clearance of these straps to not interfere or put any downward pressure on our spoiler. Once we have it in position we can then clamp down the levers. Now if the levers seem too easy to clamp down and theres some space in between the gears theres a knob on the other side of the black lever that you can simply just turn to tighten any slack.Now that we have it pretty much centered well go ahead and start off with showing you how you connect it straight to the connection point between the rear hatch and the vehicle. Well just be using the clips which would simply fit right into the slot. So well do the top straps first. Well help prevent the bike rack from falling off while youre trying to install it. Now these hooks are coated in a rubber paint, which will help protect your vehicle from getting scratched. Once both of the hooks are in place we can then pull our strap making sure its not twisted. Now you dont want to tighten the straps down too tight as that could pull up and put upward pressure on since we dont have the bottom straps hooked in yet.Now with this done we can go ahead and take the other straps to go around the side of the rear hatch as well as the bottom of the rear hatch. Well start off with the bottom hooks. Once again these hooks are coated in a rubber paint so it will help protect your vehicle from getting scratched. Now at times you may need to open up your hatch to be able to get the hooks into position. Now with those in place we can tighten down our straps. Now that the bottom one is in place you can go ahead with the side straps. Now you want to kind of get the side straps as parallel with the connection point on the bike rack, remembering not to get them too tight as we dont want to offset the bike rack. Now that weve kind of made sure our straps are all in place, reduce the majority of the slack and made sure they werent all twisted we can now go ahead and fully tighten all the straps and secure the bike rack to the vehicle.Now I went ahead and started reducing as much slack in the bottom that way we can fully tighten them at the top. Then go back down to the bottom and finish off with the sides. Now with everything all tightened down and secured we can just secure the excess straps by either tying the straps to a piece of the bike rack or by folding it up and pinching it between the connection strap and the rear hatch. Now once again you may see that the strap is making contact with the top portion of the spoiler, but what is most important is that the bike rack is not putting any downward pressure on the spoiler. Now with the bike rack fully secured to the vehicle well go ahead and show you how the top straps attach to each different type of connection.First, well start with the hatch straps. Well first need to just loosen up the top straps and remove the hook from the space between the rear hatch and the top of the car. Well then fully remove this strap as well be installing a different strap which will connect to this attachment D-ring. Well take this quick strap adapter, which has the padded protection pad. Well take the end of this feed it through this buckle and as you can see theres a hook right here on the inside of this pad. Let this rest on here. Well take the D-ring, connect it to that hook and then pull the strap tight. Well then close the hook and loop fasteners. As you can see this will further protect your care from getting scratched. Well then just repeat the same process for the other side.Now with both straps attach we can then just tighten them down. Well then just secure the excess slack as we did for the previous attachment. Well now go ahead and show you how to attach the bike rack to the raised side rail adapter. Like we showed you earlier well thread this around the side rail with the pad side down, insert the D-ring at a 90 degree angle and pull it through. We can then untie this, loosen up this strap with the same clip that we used for the hatch mount. Well come up here and attach this mount. Well just pull the strap kind of tight and again close this so we dont scratch the side rail or the paint. Now remember this is just for demonstration purposes so if you did use the side rail mount you wouldnt have the rear hatch connection point in there.Now well move to the other side of the vehicle and repeat the same steps. Now that we have both straps in place we can finish tightening them down to secure the bike rack to the vehicle. We can then secure the excess straps and were ready to go. The last way were going to be showing you is how to attach it to your vehicles crossbars. Now we already had it hooked up with the raised side rail connection point so well simply undo this connection and take the anchor strap which was previously around the side rail and go around the crossbar. Now remember youll go with the fabric side, pad down to protect your crossbar from any scratches or abrasions. Wrap it around like we did and insert the D-ring into the other D-ring.Well then take the clip with the fabric pad around it and well make that connection point. Now we can then close this which will again help to secure the two connection points together and prevent it from damaging your car. Now again you dont want to tighten this strap too tight yet as that will cause the bike rack to twist to one side of the vehicle. So well move over to the other side and repeat the same process. Now with both straps in place and semi-tightened down we can go ahead and completely finish tightening them down. Now with everything all tightened down we can then tie down or secure the excess strap. Now with the straps secured to the crossbars you can see that we have a lot of room in between the straps and the rear spoiler.Now that weve gone over each of the four different types of attachments, you can see that for each attachment point we have a different amount of room between the straps and the vehicle which can accommodate for different size spoilers. Now with our bike rack all secure to our vehicle were ready to load up our bike. Well first flip out the bottom set of black levers to bring out our dual arm. Now the dual arms do need to be level or slightly angled up to ensure that the bike will ride correctly. Once we have this in place well lock our arms remembering that if the gears are a little bit loose or if the levers are not locking down tight enough you can turn these knobs on the inside of the levers to tighten them down more.Well then take our bike, set it into the frame cradles and bring the strap around the frame. Now youll want to make sure that the cradle with the anti-sway part is up against the bottom portion of the feet post of the bike frame. Well then bring the anti-sway strap around as well as the other two remaining straps. Now one important thing to remember when carrying one bike is that it needs to be loaded closest to the vehicle. Now that our bikes are all loaded up well go ahead and take it for a test drive to show you how it looks driving down the road. With that, that will complete todays review of the Hollywood Racks over the top truck mounted two bike carrier for vehicles with spoilers, part number HRF2.

After much research, we decided to purchase this bike rack. We have a 2012 Honda CRV. The rear hatch has a small spoiler/rear tail light at the top and we were concerned about using a rack that would push against it. This rack didn't do that and based on that feature we purchased the Hollywood rack. The video explaining how to assemble it make it easy to relate to the directions and we had it up and ready in a very short time. We have used it multiple times and absolutely love it! The bikes are securely attached. I did read a review about the concern about what to do with the extra straps...we used plastic zip ties or velcro ties to secure them. Yes, this rack did cost more than the ones in the sporting goods store, but we think it was well worth it. We are very pleased with this purchase and highly recommend it. 138241





Comments

Hi Linda, we have exactly this same kind of car. Im concerned that this bike rack will interfere with the rear windshield wiper, which apparently can automatically turn on if your front wipers are on and you drive in reverse Ive never tried this, but some people on a CRV owners forum talked about this. Also Im concerned that the weight of the bikes might press against a weak park of the rear hatch door and damage it again, I dont know from experience that this area is weak, but its something that was raised in the owners forum. Do you know anything about this?ThanksStefanie S.

Hi Stefanie S.,We, too, were concerned about the rear wiper while going in reverse. To ensure that we dont have an issue, we will be putting the wipers in the off position whenever the CRV is going in reverse. The weight of the bikes have not caused any issues on the exterior of our vehicle. Hope this helps!

I bought this for my 2010 Chevy Camaro. I like it a lot. I wish the instructions were clearer for putting on the Camaro. Even though etrailer said it would fit perfectly, the bottom rollers cover my license plate - not sure that's legit and I think I could get pulled over for that. However, other than that, it seems to fit, and I used it to carry two mountain bikes on the hightway, doing about 75 mph for about 2.5 hours (yeah, I could probably get pulled over for that too). It was nice and snug, didn't damage my trunk and didn't touch the spoiler on the back. It didn't detract from the cool factor of the camaro either. :) Better instructions - that would be great. I had my bike shop guys show me how to put it on and he had a little trouble figuring it out too. 137747

The service & shipping status updates were prompt and professional. The instructional video on how to install the Over-the-Top carrier to my 2014 Toyota RAV4 was very helpful. Since this rack can be attached to roof cross-bars, we will also be using it on my wife's Subaru Outback. I did wind up buying some velcro straps to gather in the excess straps. Overall an excellent experience. 93759

After searching a bike rack for my Toyota Sinenna 2011.... The Hollywood over the top bike rack seems my only choice. I dont have the hitch installed.My question is... it is only a 2 bike rack.But usually I have at least 3 bikes.So, can I open my mini vans backdoor when the Hollywood over the top bike rack is installed?Thanks

It not be advisable to open the door with the rack installed. It would end up shifting out of place. It would be better to use a roof mounted bike rack for the 3rd bike if your van is equipped with a set of roof rack crossbars. If not, adding a hitch and using a hitch mounted bike rack would be the best and probably least expensive way to carry 3 or more bikes.

I needed a carrier to fit over a plastic spoiler on my lexus 400 h. Bike stores near me said nothing would work and I'd need an expensive trailer hitch or roof rack. I found this one and it's perfect. It adjusts so I can attach it several different ways and holds my two bikes well and doesnt rub the car. Only complaint is the learning curve on getting it set up and attached and it's a little hard to open the ratchets to position the various arms- I managed to pinch my finger. But overall I'm thrilled and like the fact it will fit both my cars. I feel like I got 2 racks for one reasonable price. 121841

The HRF2 was the only unit I could use for my Honda CR-V. Although it was not a brand name I recognized, I read a review on the etrailer website that said it was a quality unit. They were right. It was a little difficult setting it up for the first time, but the instructions were easy and accurate and once it's set up it's easy to remove and install. It is a well built unit and I trust it with my new (expensive) bikes. Also, they expedited shipment without a request from me which shows me how much they care about their customers! 135215

Just got the rack installed over the weekend and it works wonderfully. It is a very versatile rack that would probably fit on most vehicles, but definitely solves the problem of clearing the rear spoiler on our SUV. Very sturdy, well put together product. Initially I had a difficult time finding the right bike rack for our car but once I came across the etrailer.com website I found what I was looking for right away. The customer service was excellent, the staff is knowledgable, and the prices are great! 144233

Have a 2007 BMWX3 and was told by the bike shop, I only had one choice but to get a hitch installed because the top spoiler was made of fibre glass and would break with a typical rear bike rack......well so glad I found this bike rack!! Just installed it this past weekend (was so easy and sturdy) and worked great with my mountain bike!!! So happy with it!!! So much better than spending $600 for a hitch install! 126621

This worked very well on my Lexus RX350 with roof racks. Unfortunately, it isn't as friendly on my wive's Acura RDX without roof racks. We both have spoilers above the back window which makes it necessary to not have straps come across the spoiler. Having said that, I found the HRF2 to be the most secure and stable bike rack I have ever had. 139567

  • What Trunk-Mount Bike Carriers Will Clear Rear Spoiler on 2010 Lexus RX350
  • A rear spoiler often poses a challenge to the fit of a trunk-mount bike carrier.

  • Since your 2010 Nissan Rogue has that rear spoiler at the top of the rear hatch you will not be able to use the Thule Passage bike rack # TH901XT. But do not despair because there is a trunk mount bike rack that was designed to work with vehicles that have that rear spoiler and it is the only trunk mount that will not put pressure on the spoiler. I recommend the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top rack, # HRF2. It has an extra structure that allows the top straps to go up and over the rear...

  • Should the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Bike Rack be Left On a 2005 BMW X3
  • The Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top trunk mount bike rack, # HRF2, can be considered as an easy to install and remove item. It mounts to the back of the vehicle with 6 straps. After the first time installing the rack and getting the straps to the correct length, subsequent installations will be quick and easy. The rack should not stay on the vehicle when not in use or for extended periods of time. It is always recommended to remove the rack if it will not be used for long periods of time. You...

  • Bike Rack Options for 2013 Audi Q5
  • I spoke with my contact at Thule, who tells me that they do not recommend using a trunk mounted bike rack on an Audi Q5, as there is not a strong enough place to attach the top hooks holding the rack to the vehicle. Attaching the racks directly to the glass of the hatch or plastic covering the hatch can damage the vehicle. Hollywood Racks offers a 2 bike rack, their Over-the-Top, part # HRF2 that would work great on your vehicle. Its unique design splits the weight between the vehicle...

Check out the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 Bike Carrier for Vehicles w Spoilers # HRF2. This rack has been confirmed to fit your vehicle and after having the opportunity to see this rack installed on a vehicle in our install bay I can highly recommend it.

  • Availability of Thule or Yakima Trunk Mount Bike Rack for 2014 Honda CR-V
  • At this time, Hollywood Racks is our only vendor offering a trunk mount rack that's compatible with the 4th Generation CR-V. A Thule or Yakima rack would need to attach to the vehicle at the top edge of the rear hatch glass, which is not capable of holding the weight without shattering the hatch glass. The Hollywood Racks 2-bike model # HRF2 or the 3-bike model # HRF2-3 mount to the vehicle a little differently, using an additional padded bar that rests on the hatch in the middle of...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike rack Recommendations for a 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek
  • Because of the spoiler you will not be able to safely mount a trunk mount bike rack to the 2013 Subaru XV Crostrek. There is a good chance that the Over-the-Top bike rack # HRF2 will fit but it has not been a confirmed fit yet for the Crosstrek. What I recommend is what I know will work and what will actually be the safest option to carry bikes. You can install a trailer hitch like # C13135 and use a hitch mount bike rack. For a bike rack I recommend the Swagman Titan, # S63405. It holds...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Subaru Forester With a Hatch Visor/Spoiler
  • The Hollywood Racks Over-The-Top Bike Rack # HRF2 will fit your 2014 Subaru Forester with the back visor/spoiler on the hatch. This rack was designed to clear most spoilers on a variety of vehicles. This bike rack can carry two bikes up to 35 lbs per bike. If you are planning on carrying either womens, childrens or alternative frame bikes, I recommend the Hollywood Racks Adapter Bar # HRBA-PRO. By using this adapter, your bikes will be carried level and have ground clearance. I have...

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2010 Lexus RX 450h
  • When I go through the standard Thule fit guide and the mobile fit guide the Thule Raceway # TH9001XT does come up in both fit guides for the 2010 Lexus RX 450h. Maybe you went through it a different way but it does come up for me. Your concerns about the spoiler are valid and whether it was tested or not if you are like me you just do not want any part of the rack putting pressure on that spoiler. Luckily one bike rack manufacturer, Hollywood Racks, developed a trunk mount bike rack...

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack for a 2013 Mercedes ML350 with Rear Spoiler
  • Since your 2013 Mercedes ML350 has the spoiler at the top of the rear hatch you will need to use the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top bike rack # HRF2. This rack has a unique design and extra arm that moves the upper straps up higher to go over the spoiler. All of the other trunk mount bike racks would end up putting stress on the spoiler which it is not rated for. The Over-the-Top bike rack is the perfect solution.

  • 2013 Nissan Pathfinder Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendation
  • If your 2013 Nissan Pathfinder is equipped with a rear spoiler, and from my research it most likely is, you might want to consider the Hollywood Rack Over the Top # HRF2. Currently we only have this bike rack in 2 bike configuration. This bike rack is one of our newest products and is specifically designed to be used on vehicles with a rear spoiler. The design of this trunk mounted bike rack reduces the stress that can be placed on the rear spoiler when using a trunk mount bike rack. The...

  • Bike Carrying Options for a 2010 BMW X3
  • There are a few different options for carrying bikes on your 2010 BMW X3, but if you wanted to go with a trunk mounted bike rack like the Yakima KingJoe Pro Bike Rack, # Y02625, that you referenced, then I recommend going with the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 Bike Rack, # HRF2. Your X3 has a plastic spoiler at the top of the rear hatch that was not designed to support the weight of a bike rack and bikes. The Over-the-Top bike rack routes the upper straps up and over the spoiler to eliminate...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 2010 Honda Odyssey Without Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • The most popular bike racks for etrailer customers who have the 2010 Honda Odyssey are indeed the hitch-mount type, but we do offer a trunk-mount 2-bike carrier from Hollywood Racks that will work on your Odyssey that does not have a trailer hitch receiver. The Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2-Bike Carrier, part # HRF2, will work on your Odyssey. This unique carrier is compatible with vehicles that have a spoiler, a feature that makes many carriers unusable. The arching upper arms and...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2006 Subaru Outback
  • I am afraid that there are no trunk mount bike racks that will fit the 2006 Subaru Outback Wagon. A trunk mount bike rack cannot be safely attached to the vehicle. Instead, the best bet would be to install a trailer hitch. Since you will just want to carry the one bike, possibly 2 bikes, I recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 36334. This is a Class II trailer hitch with a 1-1/4 inch receiver. I have included a link to the installation details for you. For a compatible bike rack,...

  • Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Options for 2012 BMW X3
  • I spoke with my Thule Representative, who has confirmed that the Raceway # TH9002 is not considered a fit for the 2012 X3 because the top straps that connect the rack to the vehicle would need to pass over the spoiler located atop the rear hatch. Their testing has indicated that the spoiler is not strong enough to handle the weight of two bikes and the weight of the carrier. This is the most up-to-date information available from Thule. The Yakima KingJoe you mentioned, part # Y026205...

  • Center Exhaust on 2013 Hyundai Veloster Can Melt Plastic Trailer Hitch Accessories
  • The center exhaust on the 2013 Hyundai Veloster is fairly high up in relationship to where a hitch receiver would be. That is going to be a problem for any hitch mounted accessory. Interestingly enough the bike rack probably ended up protecting the bikes. The only option for this is to have an exhaust down turn, see link, to direct the exhaust downward instead of straight out. The only problem with this is finding one that fits the exhaust on a Veloster. A metal handle is not available...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Two Bike Rack for 2009 Nissan Rogue
  • I'd recommend the Draw-Tite Class III hitch, part # 75606. The hitch uses the more popular 2 inch receiver opening, so you'll have a better selection of bike racks and other hitch mounted accessories to choose from. I've linked to an install video. The number of bike racks compatible with your Rogue are too numerous to mention, but if you click the link, you can see a listing of the top 20 most popular bike racks with Rogue owners.

  • Does the Hollywood Racks Over the Top # HRF2 Block the Rear Wiper and Window on a 2012 Honda CR-V
  • There are a couple of different ways to mount the Hollywood Rack Over the Top # HRF2 on your 2012 Honda CR-V depending on how your vehicle is currently accessorized. Even with the different mounting options for the Over the Top the middle support frame arm would still be in contact with the rear glass on your 2012 Honda CR-V, and would prevent you from using your rear windshield wiper. There will also be some visibility interference with the bike rack mounted to your vehicle, especially...

  • Will Thule Raceway Platform 2 Bike Fit 2013 Toyota HIghlander
  • At this time we have one bike rack that will fit your 2013 Toyota Highlander and it is the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top # HRF2. This bike rack is designed to go over the top of the spoiler at the top of your rear hatch so it will not damage your vehicle. The # HRF can accommodate 2 bikes at 35 lbs per bike. The Thule Raceway Platform # TH9003 will not fit because of the spoiler the Highlander has at the top of the rear hatch. Thule does not have a trunk mount bike rack that will fit...

  • Trunk-Mount Bike Carrier Fit Limitations for 2008 Honda Odyssey with Roofline Spoiler
  • You ask a very good question about your 2008 Honda Odyssey and what design feature makes it less compatible with trunk-mount type bike carriers. That feature on your Odyssey is the spoiler at the back of the roof above the rear hatch. Spoilers on many vehicles pose a challenge for fitting many otherwise great options in bike racks. The reason is that the attachment straps or cables that secure trunk racks to vehicles will make contact with the spoiler, and over time could lead to marks,...

  • Does the Yakima QuickBack 3 Bike Trunk Mounted Rack Y02622 work with a 2004 Honda Pilot?

Hollywood Racks offers the Over the Top Trunk Mounted Bike Rack for two bikes, part # HRF2 which is compatible with your Pilot. If you have a hitch on your Pilot, there are many bike racks to fit. You might try the Yakima DoubleDown Ace 4 Bike rack, part Y02451. It tilts for access to the cargo area, and features...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Audi Q5
  • The Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Bike Rack part # HRF2 that you referenced is a fit for your 2014 Audi Q5 and would work well for you. I attached a review video. However, a hitch mounted bike rack is preferred for a few reasons. The rack doesn't contact the vehicle, has more capacity usually, and allows for more flexibility for future towing accessories like cargo carriers or towing a trailer. If you are even considering a hitch I would recommend you do go this route. The hitch will...

Take a look at the Hollywood Racks Over-The-Top rack # HRF2. This rack has an additional upper arm piece that moves the top straps up and over the spoiler so no weight is put on it. I have linked a video review of this rack for you. If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar...

  • Hitch and Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Recommendations for 2007 Acura RDX
  • The best trunk mounted bike rack solution for your 2007 Acura RDX, according to my technical contact at Hollywood Racks, is the Hollywood Rack Over the Top # HRF2. When installing this rack, you will need to use the hatch catcher clips instead of the metal ones (both are provided in the box) at all three attachment points - top, side, and bottom. One point of consideration is that when your rack is attached, you will not be able to access your cargo area without removing the unit. The...

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2012 Toyota Prius c
  • The 3-bike trunk mount bike racks that we carry for the 2012 Prius c will only fit if the vehicle does not have a spoiler at the top of the rear hatch. Or, if there is a spoiler, it would have to be made of metal or have a gap between it and the hatch large enough for the hooks and straps to fit through. The most economical option is the Yakima KingJoe, # Y02620. If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar that goes straight across (like a typical mens bike...
