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 traditonal 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.


Dual Adjustable 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.

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 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.

  • 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

  • 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 Hol

  • Fit of Hollywood Racks Over the Top Bike Rack # HRF2 on 2012 Honda CR-V

I have confirmed the fit of the Over the Top # HRF2 on your vehicle by consulting Hollywood Racks. To carry womens bikes or bikes with sharply angled top tubes or step-through frames, using a frame adapter like part # HRBA-PRO is recommended. The adapter spans the distance between the seat post and the handle bar gooseneck, and provides a level attachment point

  • 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 when

  • For your Subaru Outback and your 2011 Toyota Highlander, the trunk mount bike rack that I would recommend is the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 bike rack, # HRF2. Most trunk mount bike racks are not recommended for the Highlander because of the rear spoiler. The rear spoiler on the Highlanders is made of plastic and it cannot support the weight of traditional trunk mount bike racks.

I verified this on the Hollywood Racks website. They show no trunk-mount racks for the 2007 Honda Fit Sport; they instead suggest installation of a hitch receiver to allow use of a hitch-mount carrier.

I spoke with my contact at Hollywood Racks and in order to prevent damage to the spoiler, a trunk mounted rack including their Over-the-Top 2 Bike Carrier, # HRF2, is not recommended. The compatibility issue comes from the rack interfering with the automatic open/close feature and the plastic liner inside the edge of the hatch.

However, a hitch mounted bike rack is preferred for a few reasons.

This would be the ideal trunk mounted bike rack for your vehicles since they have plastic spoilers and this rack is designed to fit over spoilers without contacting them in any way.

  • I checked with Hollywood Racks and they do not list the Over-the-Top rack, # HRF2, as a fit for the Infinity EX35. If you can tell me the year of your EX35 I can determine if there are any other options that will fit. If the vehicle has a little spoiler at the top of the rear hatch then none of the other racks will fit either. In this case the best option is to install a trailer hitch and use a hitch mount bike rack. We have 1 hitch that fits 2008 to 2012 Infiniti EX35 Journey models, # C1151

  • 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.
