Today on this 2009 Toyota Yaris we're going to do a test fit of product number TH990XT from Thule. This is the Doubletrack Platform-Style Bike Rack. Couple quick notes about this bicycle rack is it will work with 1-1/4 inch receiver hitches both class 1 and class 2. This will also work with 2-inch receiver hitches with the included spacer. We'll go ahead and start off our test fit by installing the bike rack into the hitch. We'll install the anti-rattle bolt and then lock on the other side.
Next, we'll give you some measurements that will give you the idea of clearance between the bicycle rack and the car and ground clearance. Clearance between the wheel well and the back hatch is going to be about 6 inches. Ground clearance will be 10 inches and we'll go ahead and pull back on the hitch switch and lower the bike rack and give you one more measurement at the very end of the rack. Alright now, it looks like 17 inches. At this point we can go ahead and check for access at the back of the vehicle.
Alright, that looks good. At this point we can go ahead and start loading up our bike. We'll start off by making sure the straps are out of the way in the wheel wells and we also make sure that the center post clamps around to the very top and also we'll pull up just a little bit to get it out of a lock position. Ok, we then load up our bike. We'll put the wheels in wheel well.
We'll run the post up over to see and pull the clamp down onto the top tube. Then we go ahead and move on to our inaudible over the wheels. In just a few steps our bike is loaded up and ready to go. One last observation, it looks like you cannot open up the back hatch with the bike in place. And with that that will finish it for our test fit of product number TH990XT from Thule the Doubletrack Bicycle Rack on our 2009 Toyota Yaris..
