  • Will Yakima SpareTime 2 Bike Carrier # Y02599 Allow Rear Glass to Open on 2007 Jeep Liberty
    The rear glass of your 2007 Jeep Liberty would have no problem opening with the Yakima SpareTime 2 Bike Carrier # Y02599 installed. If you check out the video I attached you will see that the rack sits pretty low in relation to the rear glass, and since the glass opens up and not out over the tire it would fit just fine.

  • Replacement Bolt for the Softride Bike Extender Bar with the Softride Bike Rack
    The Softride Bike Rack Extender Bar # SR26033 is meant to replace the existing hitch bar on your Softride Bike Rack like the Softride Hang 2 # SR27041. I attached a picture with the pieces side-by-side so you can see how it replaces and "extends" the hitch bar. Once you've uninstalled the old hitch bar and replaced it with your extender, you can use the anti-rattle bolt that came with your bike rack to attach the rack to your hitch receiver. You are correct in that the bar only has holes...

  • Compatibility fo the Softride Bike Rack Extender Bar with the Yakima Double Down 2 Bike Rack
    The Softride Bike Rack Extender Bar, item # SR26033, is only intended for the 2 inch Softride Dura and Versa bike racks, and only provides up to 8 inches of extension. I would recommend using the Hitch Extender For 2 inch Trailer Hitch Receiver 14 inches, item # HE12, to provide the clearance you will need to mount your bike rack. Remember that when using an adapter the overall capacity of your hitch is reduced by 50 percent. Along with this extender I would recommend using an anti-rattle...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack that Allows the Rear Hatch to Open on a 2016 Chevy Traverse
    Most bike racks that tilt down are not rated to do so with the bikes loaded. You would have to unload the bikes from the Thule Helium # TH9043PRO to be able to tilt it down and even then some times it isn't enough to open the hatch on some vehicles. The tilting racks that generally allow you to keep bikes loaded are the platform style that hold the wheels tight to the carrier. What I recommend is the Saris Glide EX, # SA774, which is similar to the Helium but it tilts out instead of down...
