Video Transcript for Hollywood Racks Bike Rack Hatch Anchors Replacement Review

Hi everyone. It's Evangelina here at etrailer, and today we are looking at the hatch anchors for Hollywood racks trunk mounted bike racks here at etrailer. So these are the hatch anchors that will fit into your trunk bike rack from Hollywood racks. This is especially useful if you have a full glass hatch. Here we have a vehicle that has a spoiler, but this will help with those hatchbacks to give that weight distribution and make sure you aren't breaking your vehicle. The hatch anchors have two parts.

So here at the top, you have the dog bone that's going to rest inside your hatch. And then on the other end, you have this D ring. Now that D ring is plastic coated, which allows it to sit on top of your vehicle. These hatch anchors are designed to be used with the quick connect straps. While these are ideally to be used to replace your top hooks especially because of those glass hatches.

For some vehicles, you may be instructed to use them on the side or on the bottom. Please check the fit guide to make sure which one is used for where. Now let's take a look at how to install these hatch anchors into your hatch. First, is you're going to open up your hatch. Right over there, and then you're going to feed the hook through your hatch while leaving the dog bone underneath.

Feed this up through, and you may need to move your hatch as you do so just to get that ring up there. Do the same on the other end. What I found was the best way to do this was just to leave the dog bone at the top and make sure you get as much of the strap on the top to pick it up when you do close the hatch. Like what I'm going to do right now. Once installed, you're then going to pull that D ring through just to get all that slack out of the strap and make sure your dog bone is properly or snugly installed inside your hatch.

And from there, you can just leave it here, ready to attach to your bike rack. Once you have your quick connect straps attached to your bike rack, you then attach it to the D rings on the hatch anchors, right there. As you can see, there is a canvas part. That's going to rest on your vehicle to protect it from scuffs and scratches. Once you have it fully tightened down, you can then cover it with this hook and loop patch. That will secure your canvas piece. And once everything's tightened down, that's it for the install of your hatch anchors. Now not all vehicles will require these hatch anchors. Please double check the fit guide just to make sure you get the right straps for your vehicle. We have this here on our RAV4, which only needs the hooks to mount the over the top trunk mounted bike rack. But I used it just to demonstrate exactly how you attach them to your straps, so that you have the process down. My final thoughts about these hatch anchors are that they do work in adding extra security or weight distribution to your Hollywood racks trunk mounted bike rack. One thing about them though, is that they come with the Hollywood racks over the top like what we have here. If you have other bike racks that need those hatch anchors, you may need to also pick up the quick connect straps if they are not included. So just double check what you already have with you and see if it works with your current system, or if you need more straps. You can both find those straps here at etrailer.com and all in all, once you have them both together with the quick connect and the hatch anchors, they are relatively easy to install. And that was a look here at the hatch anchors for your Hollywood racks trunk mounted bike racks here at etrailer..

  • Trouble Installing The Hollywood Racks Over-The-Top 3 Bike Rack On The 2020 BMW X3
    It sounds like you need to use the hatch anchors instead of the clips.

  • How to Install Lower Hooks of Over-the-Top Trunk Mount Rack on a 2017 Toyota RAV4 Limited
    Great question! Since you have that extra trim piece at the bottom of your 2017 Toyota RAV4 Limited you're going to want to install the hatch anchors that come with the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 3 Bike Rack # HRF2-3. The cylinder-looking piece will sit inside your rear cargo area and you close the hatch with the strap hanging out. This way when you attach the bike rack to the straps they will pull that cylinder against the closed rear hatch and that's what secures the lower portion...

  • Do I Need to Use the Hatch Anchors for the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 3 on My 2016 Mazda CX-5?
    From a previous question, it looks like you are trying to confirm whether you need to use the hatch anchor attachment on the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 3 # HRF2-3 for your 2016 Mazda CX-5. From the looks of the photographs of your vehicle, it appears that the line where the roof meets the hatch of the vehicle is too narrow for the hooks to fasten on to. For this situation, you will need to use the hatch anchors # HR44FR. Since the Over-the-Top 3 comes with the hooks, you can always test...

  • Can Thule Trunk-Mount Bike Rack be Used on 2006 Honda CR-V
    Thank you for all of the info and the picture! Normally when the hatch on a vehicle doesn't allow the hooks to properly secure you would just use an anchor type system like the Hollywood Racks part # HR44FR. These would sit inside the rear hatch area and would essentially pull against the door to hold the rack in place. I checked with all of our manufacturers and none of them list a fit for a 2006 Honda CR-V. So even if you were able to use anchors I'm not sure if a Thule bike rack, like...
