Yakima HoldUp Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2014 Nissan Pathfinder

Another great feature, cable lock built into the end of our wheel hook arm, this allows you to come around through your frame, depending on your bike, maybe up through your tire so we can get frames and things like that secured. When not in use it's going to slide right back into the arm there.
