It fits between the seat post and handlebar stem post of your bike to ensure level transport on your hitch-, trunk-, or spare-tire-mounted bike rack.

To install the adapter bar simply open the hooks with the integrated release buttons, wrap one hook around your handlebar stem post and the other around your seat post, and close the hooks. The hooks open outward - parallel with the bar - to help you avoid interference from the seat and handlebars during installation. The bar has red "Up" indicators on each end to help prevent incorrect installation.


Vinyl-Coated Hooks

Video Transcript for Swagman Hitch Bike Racks 64005 Review

Today we are going to show you part number S64005 from Swagman. This is their DLX Bicycle Adapter. What the DLX adapter will do for you is level out your bike on your bicycle rack. So if you have an alternative frame or a ladies bike, it keeps them from sitting at extreme angles on your bicycle rack.

We will go ahead and show you how to install this on our bicycle here. We have an alternative frame bicycle, and it is pretty easy to install. We will start with the front half underneath the handlebars here. Just open it up, pushing this button here. And then slide it around and snap it back into place. And do the same thing with the back half. Push the button to open it up and it will go underneath the seat. And let it spring back to its natural position. And you can see there is plenty of movement. And then you can go ahead and simply carry the bike that way. As you can see the bicycle carrier will do the same thing.

All right, we will go ahead and install it on a typical bicycle rack here. With the adapter bar installed, you can see that the bike sits a lot more level than it would before.And there you have it for part number S64005 from Swagman, the DLX Adapter Bar.

This adapter was just what I was looking for, and etrailer was the place to get it! Works great on my wife's bike for the bicycle hook in the garage, and the carrier on the car. Easy to use, and a good price, along with quick service. Ordered Monday, it arrived Friday. 89917


Comments

We could not go without it. It can be a little tricky putting it on the bike, however, its a lot easier once you put it on and take it off the bike a few times. We use it to carry my wifes bike on the carrier, and for hanging it on the hook in the garage.

The 2 bike frame adapters are perfect for our 2 new electric bikes. Because of knee issues we ordered walk-through models, but they are hard to install on a bike carrier so these adapters make everything work together. They were well-packaged and delivered quickly to our door. etrailer.com has been a great company to work with; we've ordered other items for our boat trailer and a hanging bike rack too. I especially appreciate George from etrailer.com keeping us informed every step of the way, and it's nice that they acknowledged we are returning customers. A little thing but appreciated. We are very glad we found etrailer.com a few years back and will continue to do business with them in the future. Don't waste your time with other sites. etrailer.com will have you covered and their instructional videos are the best on the entire web! 445923

The frame adapter is certainly substantial but I would like to see the clasping arrangement a little more secure. I haven't used it yet so the proof will be in the pudding! 554999

The adapter doesn't fit as well on my particular bike frame, so it's a little tricky to get the bike on and off the bike rack. However, it does the job. 573154

It works as advertised, however, the dimensions are a little off. It says it fits 16" to 19", but, I bought it to use on my grandson's bike that measures 17" and it just barely fits. I would say it is a little large but it works for the short distance I need to transport his bike. If I were using it on a regular basis I might consider returning it because it would eventually wear off the paint. It also allows the bike to bounce a lot because it is not really attached to the bike. 173356

The bar arrived and we installed on the womens bike so that it would fit on the bike rack. 542837

I bought this one because the other snap kind adaptor almost caused me an accident on the freeway. The snap was unlocked while I was carrying the bike. So..I think this one has the pins lock. It should not come off easily. The problem is..it's not easy to put it on. The front part is not bad you just turn the knob. The back part is not easy. I don't know why they just use a knob like the front!!! Another thing the bar came in 2 pcs and they can come apart so easy. When putting on the bike, it feel loose. 8247

The "Swagman Easy-Out Women's and Alternative Frame Bike Adapters" were highly recommended to me by bike enthusiasts. These are a welcome addition to our bike rack for this coming spring, summer and fall months. I've always had problems carrying my wife's mountain bike and last year my new "Townie" - these devices will end me time and difficulty with mounting our bikes and removing then removing them from our carrier. We'll spend more time enjoying our bikes! 33350

This thing is cool. The other night I was researching hitches and bike racks when I realized my wife's bike was not going to fit on any rack. So I was initially disappointed, then I came across this thing. I got it earlier this week and opened it tonight (by the way, I ordered Sunday night, had two or three messages from etrailer by Monday before I woke up, the last of which was telling me my order shipped - pretty awesome). It fit right on her bike and gave me a way to hang it on the rack in the garage and the rack on the car. Works great. I was concerned it would not be sturdy, but it is quite strong. Not worried about heading down the road next weekend with it. 21775

I’ve arrived at a point where I visit the etrailer website first to obtain detailed information on the products I’m interested in. I then do some comparison shopping to verify Quality, Pricing and Availability. The pricing is always competitive, but their service levels are extraordinary. The communications are excellent, and the follow-up (during ordering, after ordering, and after delivery) is top notch. I’ve ordered several times now from etrailer, and most the time they have the products in inventory ready for rapid delivery. On the occasions I’ve ordered a non-stocked product, I’ve received the products before the indicated times. Their service levels have kept me as a dedicated returning customer. Thanks for all you do. 551393

Seems to work okay for our ladies bike but to secure it onto the horizontal bike rack couplings, it has square ends on both sides of the housing and the couplings accommodate a round bar. I will work, just not the right fit. 541112

Absolutely Wunderbar (wonderful)! etrailer support U.S. Service member by being one of the ONLY online vehicle equipment ordering organizations that ships to an APO address. (and I searched a ton of them) I live in Germany and work for the DoD. After researching SEVERAL sites to purchase and ship a trailer hitch, bike rack, mountain bike mount and electrical system to support it for my needs, I discovered my ONLY solution I was etrailer. Lots of others had the gear I required, but NONE of them, would ship to an APO address. Yes, the prices were just a bit higher than a few of the other sites, but without the ability to ship to an APO, the price difference was negligable. So, the GREAT things about etrailer; 1. Easy/simple ordering process 2. great seach tool capability, allowing me to find everything I needed and recommended other items I may not have thought about. 3. Simple / well layed out online order ability. 4. Amazingly quick, delivery. Within 10 days of my order being placed, I had everything in the mail. Yes, shipping cost a bit more than desired, but again, paying a bit more to ship at least allowed it to actually BE shipped to my APO. I've already had hitch and electrical installed and I'll be heading out camping this weekend, WITH my bikes in TOW and all thanks to etrailers exceptional support. Thanks ETRAILER Jason S. 52004

I had previously purchased the swagman deluxe bike frame adapter bar to use on my bike when my husband and I took our bikes to the bike trails. When my grand daughter wanted me to pick her up from school one day to take her to the bike trails I realized that I didn't have an adapter bar for her bike so that it would fit on my bike rack so I ordered another one because I like this one so much. Now we have no problems when I need to transport both womens bikes. It arrived quickly and I had no problems. I would recommend this product to anyone who has a women's or childrens bike to transport on a bike rack. Well worth the price and very reasonable price also. 573775

Swagman, product worked for our EXACT needs! helped "equalize" 4 bicycles, of varying shapes and sizes, in order to mount them all on our bike carrier. etrailer.com has one of the BEST customer service programs I have EVER come across...HIGHLY recommend! 521081

Product works great for keeping bikes level on rack. Bought one for my men's bike too so I can reduce the wear and tear on the top tube. 107490


Comments

After a year, the product is still working great. Because they are in the weather so much, a little light lube was used to keep the mechanisms working freely, but theres no deterioration of product function. These make loading multiple bikes a pleasure now rather than a puzzle.

I have a comfort bike and an Subaru Impreza that sits close to the ground. This combination has the front tire of my bike sitting too close for comfort to the ground when on a hill or incline. If the part that hooks to the front of the bike could push that end of the bike up a few more inches, it would be excellent. I'm currently using layers of Velcro around the bike to give it this boost. 82413


Comments

Still using Velcro, but overall, Im happy with my purchase. I have noticed a little rust on the buttons that open each end of the adapter, which is strange because its never been in the rain or gotten wet.

The moisture in the air can be enough to get these stamped metal buttons to rust a bit. A spray of oil or something like WD-40 every now and then will help slow it.

I was unsure of which alternative frame bike adapter to buy so I bought two (S64004 and S64005). After using both of these, I would ONLY buy product S64005. The S64004 product is very cumbersome to put on your bike. The tubes don't stay together and it will take you 15mins to get it put on your bike. Also, it will scratch your seat post and handlebar stem. The S64005 bike adapter is the one to buy! It is very simple and easy design. Very easy to get on and off your bike in 1min. The tubes stay together with a magnet type design. No scratches, no hassle! I would recommend buying this product for sure! (S64005!!) 20646

Works as designed but it does not seem to have a way of locking it onto the bike for theft security. 116258

I bought a new car-I had a Camry and now a Honda CRV. I went to e-trailer to purchase the appropriate hitch for the CRV so I could still use the Swagman Bike Rack. What I did not count on was Swagmans ability to tilt out of the way of the CRVs lift tail gate. I was happy about this. Great rack!

Seems like a nice product when you first hold it in your hands. Solid build and tough quality. It does what it is supposed to do very well, which is to give you additional clearance on odd frames, like women's specific geometry, to mount to the rack. The biggest problem is because of the needs of the design, the bike will sway quite a lot. So much so that it totally negates the benefit of the swagman XP standard racks rock solid mounting. I had to strap down the bike to ensure the bike doesn't sway so much. It may be a necessary evil... but the jury is out as I just got it and only got 3.5 hours of driving with it. 23802

I was looking for something to help hang my wife's bike on a car bike rack. The girls style bike is hard to hang properly if at all. I found this adapter bar on etrailer. I ordered it and wow.....Works nice, just what I needed. The service from trailer IS top notch. I was told personally when my order would arrive @ wanting to use it for a vacation very soon. I will do business again with trailer. Thank you. 84111

Stupid easy to use. In fact, so easy I was convinced I must be missing a part or something. It worked well and I could not have loaded my women's bicycle onto the rack without it. It's hard to see in my picture but it's right under he seat of the grey bike on the front. 426837

Works just like it should. makes carrying my bike on my rack easier and not so crooked. Strong, no problems worrying if it will stay put or hold the bike. I use it on a specialized womens rockhopper comp and a Framed Minnesota 2.0 fat bike. 571349

I used the bike rack for the first time today drive over 100 Miles. The installation video tutorial was excellent and helped me in installing it on my vehicle. I have a RAV4 with a spoiler and The bike rack fit perfectly not touching the spoiler as described. It was able to fit 3 bikes securely as described. I had a Thule before this and this bike rack far exceeds the quality and I feel comfortable and safe using it. I would highly recommend this bike rack and etrailer. 628362

Purchased this for my sons bicycle. Although it gets the job done, the bicycle seat has to be raised all the way tip for this bar to fit. Wished I had measured before purchasing. Is not good for small child’s, or beach cruiser type bicycles. Maybe more but definitely those two types. 615744

It fits my wife’s old mountain bike well. It would get narrow enough to clamp on my 16” son’s bike but then there wasn’t enough room between the bar and the bike’s top tube to put in on the Thule Vertex 4 bike rack. It is high quality, well made, and easy to use. No problems. 594016

  • Do you Need a Bike Adapter Bar when Carrying Women's Bikes
  • If you are mounting any women's, children's or alternative frame bikes without the top horizontal cross tube, it can be very difficult to secure your bike to a bike rack. I highly recommend, if you are carrying a women's bike without the top horizontal crosstube on a hanging bike rack, to get a bike adapter bar so your bike is as secure as possible when carrying it. I recommend the Swagman Bike Frame Adapter # 64005 for your bike. This adapter can carry one bike and it has easy push-button...

The Thule Passage 2 Bike Carrier, # TH910XT, will fit on a Ford Escape. It has a weight capacity of 70 lbs. and attaches to the vehicle by six straps for added stability..

  • Recommended Bike Carrier To Use Between RV And Towed Vehicle
  • In order to be able to carry bikes between your towed vehicle and the RV you will first need a dual receiver for your trailer hitch. I recommend the Curt Dual 2 inch Receiver Tube Adapter, part # D-192. the bottom receiver is used for the tow bar and the upper receiver has a 2 inch receiver for the bike carrier. Bike carriers need to be RV rated because they are built to take on the added stress at the rear of the RV or motorhome. The carrier I recommend is the Swagman Original,...

  • Recommendations for Attaching Girls and Alternative Framed Bikes to the Swagman #s63380 Bike Rack

We have several of these adapters available (see link). The most economic adapter bar is the Swagman Easy-Out Women and Alternative Frame Bike Adapter for Hitch Bike Racks, item # 64005, and would be a good match for your bike rack. The Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter Bar, item # Y02531, is the one I like to recommend because it has...

  • Other than the outward appearance of the more modern-looking Vertex, there are a few other differences between the Vertex # TH9029 and the Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR. To fold the arms down or to tilt the rack back away from the vehicle, the Hitching Post Pro uses snapper pins that need to be removed, while the Vertex uses quick release latches. Both mechanisms serve the same purpose, but the Vertex latch is easier to use. Since the Wrangler has the rear mounted spare tire, clearance...

  • Using Trunk Mounted Bike Rack on 2007 Honda Odyssey

Hollywood Racks makes a trunk mounted rack that would work for you. Their Over-The-Top model is available in a 2 bike version as part # HRF2 or as a 3 bike version, part # HRF2-3.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 2014 Airstream Sport
  • I recommend going with the Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk Trailer-Mounted Bike Carrier for A-Frame Trailers, # CC-275, and the Swagman Original 4 Bike Rack, # S64400, for your 2014 Airstream Sport Bambi. The Bike Bunk, # CC-275, mounts to the A-frame trailer tongue to allow you to carry any 2 inch hitch-mounted bike rack and has a 100 pound weight capacity. The Swagman Original, # S64400, was designed to provide lasting toughness and has a carrying capacity of 35 pounds per bike. Please...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a Specialized Low Entry
  • The Specialized Low Entry you are planning on buying has an incredibly low cross tube on it. You can use the Swagman XC bike rack # S64650 with your bike but you will also need the adapter bar part # 64005 to provide a higher attachment point for the arms of the XC. The arms of the XC can go pretty low, but since the cross tube of the bike rack is so short it's hard to say for certain if the arm would line up properly with the bikes frame. The arms of the rack can go down to 15 inches.

  • Differences Between the Thule Archway, Gateway and Passage
  • The best of the three you mentioned is the Thule Archway XT part # TH9009XT. This rack has an integrated cable lock and upgraded frame cradles. Aside from that it is the exact same as the # TH9006XT. The big advantage the two mentioned racks have over the # TH910XT is the adjustable arms. This rack has a fixed position for the arms of the rack so the bikes might be carried at a sharp angle. The other two racks allow you to adjust the angle of the arms so that the bikes can be carried...

  • Recommendation for 4-Bike Racks for Use on a Jayco Jay Flight Trailer
  • As you probably know there are only certain bike racks that are rated for use at the back of an RV or trailer. I have included a link to the ones that carry 4 bikes for you. If the bumper is 4 inches square you can use the Swagman rack # S80600 which you can position around the spare tire if you want. I have linked a video review of this rack for you. If your Jayco trailer has a 2 inch trailer hitch at the back then I recommend the Swagman Trailhead # S63381. This is a hanging style...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2012 Chevrolet Sonic Hatchback
  • There are many different styles of bike racks that you can use on your 2012 Chevrolet Sonic Hatchback, but due to the spoiler that comes on the rear hatch of your vehicle, I would recommend using a roof or hitch mounted bike rack over a trunk mounted bike rack. The rear spoiler on your vehicle was not designed to support any type of weight and it will be forced to support the weight of a bike rack and bikes when you use a trunk mounted bike rack. Instead, I would recommend looking into...

  • Recommended Trunk Mount Bike Rack that Won't Scratch or Dent 2015 Mercedes-Benz 300C
  • Let me begin by saying that anytime you have a piece of equipment strapped to the painted finish of a vehicle, the potential for scratches or dents exists, no getting around it. This being said, the risks can be minimized by putting as little weight as possible on the racks and by observing the racks weight capacity, by installing the rack exactly as described in the instructions, and by keeping the surfaces where the rack and vehicle touch absolutely clean. A good coat of quality car...

  • How to Mount Womans Bike with No Crossbar onto Swagman Chinook 2 Bike Carrier
  • I have a perfect solution for you. The Swagman Chinook 2 Bike Platform Rack # S64683 referenced in your question is a platform style rack, which by design is usually more compatible with woman's bikes that have an alternative frame. However, if your bike has a step through frame with a sharp downward curve or angle, then you will just need to use a bike adapter bar like the Swagman # 64005. This will clamp around your bike's seat post and handlebar's stem post to create a horizontal...

  • Comparing Thule Hitching Post And Yakima DoubleDown Hanging Bike Carriers On 2016 Honda Odyssey
  • The Thule Hitching Post, part # TH934XTR and the Yakima DoubleDown, part # Y02424 are both really nice bike carriers and would both do a nice job on your 2016 Odyssey. Both have anti-sway and both tilt away from the vehicle when empty for rear cargo area access. I recommend the Thule Hitching Post because it has a higher weight capacity at 35-lbs per bike where the Yakima DoubleDown has a weight capacity of 31-lbs per bike. One nice feature of the DoubleDown is the built-in bottle opener...

  • Recommended RV And Front Hitch Mounted Bike Rack
  • If you are looking for a 2 bike rack, I recommend the Swagman Dispatch 2 Bike Platform Rack - 2" Hitches # S64684. This rack holds bikes at the wheels as well as at the frame for a very controlled ride. This rack is designed for RV use, so it is sturdy and it comes with an anti-rattle hitch lock and cable to secure your investment. If you are looking for more bikes or a hanging rack option, I recommend the Yakima LongHaul 4 Bike Rack - 2" Hitches - Silver # Y02476. This is a heavy...

  • Capacity of Hitch and Bike Rack for 2014 Mazda CX-5
  • One of the main advantages of a hitch mount rack is the higher possible capacity (trunk mount racks carry a maximum of 3 bikes) while hitch mount racks can accommodate up to 5 bikes. You already touched on the other advantage, the hitch mount rack does not come into contact with the painted finish of the vehicle, therefore the rack cannot dent or otherwise mar the finish. Although the Draw-Tite Class III hitch you referenced, part # 76138 has a 675 lb tongue weight capacity, you will...

  • Comparing the Chinook and G10 Bike Racks for a 2007 Chevy Equinox
  • The Swagman Chinook # S64683 and G10 # S64682 are similar but there are some key differences. The G10 uses 2 rails with 2 wheel cradles each so it theoretically is compatible with more bike styles. Other than that they operate the same way. The XTC # S64670 does not tilt down so it would not really be comparable to either of the above bike racks. Also, there is no guarantee that you would be able to open the rear hatch on the vehicle with the bikes loaded on either of the top two...

  • Does Thule # TH958 Parkway 2 Bike Rack Include Anti-Sway Cradles
  • The anti sway device mentioned in the video isn't included with the Thule # TH958 Parkway Bike Rack, It's sold separately. To add that feature, you'd need the following parts: 2) of the Anti-Sway Cages, part # 853-7758 2) Straps, part # 852-3006-001 Or, you can go with the Thule Roadway, part # TH912XTR which is less expensive than the Parkway rack you referred to, but is actually a better bike rack. The Roadway includes the anti-sway cradles you were asking about, but also uses...

  • Will Hitch Mounted Bike Carrier Interfere With Back up Sensors On 2017 Subaru Forester
  • When you use any hitch mounted accessory like a bike or cargo carrier in your trailer hitch, it will likely set the backup sensors off. If the rack does not set the sensors off, the bikes probably will. You may have a setting that allows you to mute the sensors when you are carrying bikes. When choosing any accessory for your Forester you want to make sure you have enough clearance at the back of the vehicle. I have attached a helpful article that explains how you can measure to make...

  • Preventing Bike Wheels From Spinning When Carried on Hitch-Mounted Bike Rack
  • You can use a strap like the Thule Tie-Down Strap, part # 753-2030-03 to secure the front wheel to the frame of the bike or the bike rack to prevent it from turning or spinning. Also when carrying womens, childrens, or alternative frame bicycles, I would recommend using the Swagman Frame Bike Adapter Bar, part # 64005. This will allow you to carry those types of bikes level on your bike rack. I have included some links to instructions and videos for you.

  • Recommended Bike Rack Frame Adapter for a Womens Bike Frame on a Thule Vertex Bike Rack
  • With the Thule Vertex bike rack, item # TH9029XT, a frame adapter bar like part # 64005 would span the distance between the handlebar gooseneck and the seat post, which provides a secondary attachment point for the bike rack. This allows the bike to be carried level, which maximizes ground clearance. We have a product demonstration video that shows the adapter bar in action. Click on the link to view the video.

  • Recommended Economic 4 Bike Rack for 2018 Toyota Highlander XLE
  • There are lots of options for bike racks compatible with your 2018 Toyota Highlander XLE. My recommendation is to go with a platform style rack that will tilt for cargo area clearance and fold close to the vehicle when not in use. Hitch pin location is key, but your Highlander won't have any issue with most bike racks because the hitch pin hole is not extremely far back from the outer bumper. My recommendation for you is the Swagman XTC4 4-Bike Rack for 2" Hitches - Platform Style...

  • Front Mount Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for 2013 Ford F-250
  • The front mount hitch receiver I recommend for your 2013 Ford F-250 is the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch Receiver # 65049 because it is a bolt-on installation that does not require any drilling into your truck's frame and Draw-Tite's strong reputation for making high-quality trailer hitches. This hitch has a 2" receiver and will work great as a way for you to use a bike rack while you are towing your 5th wheel. I have added a link to an install of this hitch on a F-250 for you to...

  • Bike Rack and Hitch Recommendation for 2014 Toyota Sienna
  • To install a bike rack on your 2014 Toyota Sienna, you'd first need to install a trailer hitch, if you don't have one already. The Curt Class III trailer hitch, part # C13105 would be an excellent choice. The Class III hitch uses the more common 2 inch receiver opening, which would give you a better selection of hitch mounted accessories like a bike rack like the Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR or a cargo carrier like the Curt # C18153. For carrying 4 bikes, you cannot go wrong with...
