Alright, today on our 2009 Toyota Yaris, we're going to do a test fit of product number S63410 from Swagman. This is our Titan 4 Bicycle Rack. A few quick notes about this bike rack, that it will work from 1-1/4 inch receiver hitches both class 1 and class 2. However only on class 1, you can only load up to two bikes. Now, this will also work in a class 3 application or 2-inch receivers which includes a spacer. In this case, we're working with a class 1 receiver hitch.
Alright, we'll start off on installing our bike rack into the hitch. We'll install the anti-rattle bolt and tighten it down and then put the pin on the other side. Ok, with the bike rack installed, we'll go ahead and give you some measurements that will give you an idea of clearance between the bike rack, and the car and the ground. Clearance to the bumper is going to be 7-1/2 inches. Ground clearance at the hitch is going to be 10-1/2 inches and ground clearance to the very end will be 14.
Alright, we'll go ahead and tilt the bicycle rack back and check for access to the back of the car. Alright, that looks good. Now, we'll go ahead and unfold the bike rack and we'll go ahead and load up the bike. When we load up the bike, we'll make sure that the straps are out of the way for the cradles we're going to use. Alright, when we put our bike into place, we'll go ahead and bounce it on the cradles and then rotate the cradle towards the seat tube on the bike.
We'll run the strap around the seat tube first and then we'll run the straps over the top tube of the bike, ok. With those few steps, our bike is loaded up and ready to go. And there you have it of product number S63410 from Swagman, the Titan 4 Bike Rack on our 2009 Toyota Yaris.
