You can use either the basic threaded pin and clip, part 5902, or the locking version part S64029.

  • P315 Conversion Bar for Swagman XP Bike Racks
    Part # P315 probably would not work with your hitch. My information shows that the only available hitches for your 2008 Kia Optima are Class I hitches and P139 is for Class II only. We do have another adapter that will work for a Class I hitch. It is part # HTAD and it will allow your Class I 1-1/4 hitch to accept 2 inch accessories. You will need part # PC2 to hold the adapter into your hitch, and if you do not already have one, part # PC3 to hold your bike rack to the adapter. Please...

  • Can Swagman XC Hitch or RV Bumper Mount Rack # S64663 Be Used w/ 2012 Ford Fusion 1-1/4 Inch Hitch
    In order to use the Swagman XC Hitch or RV Bumper Mount Rack, # S64663, with the 1-1/4 inch on your 2012 Ford Fusion you will need a hitch adapter like the Brophy, # HTAD. Please do keep in mind that using an adapter reduces the tongue weight capacity of your hitch by 50 percent and can cause extra movement in the rack. This is where using a support strap, like part # 18050, would come in handy. I spoke with my contact at Swagman and they do not offer a 1-1/4 inch replacement shank for...

  • Availability of Replacement Shank for Swagman XP # 64960 Bike Rack
    The correct replacement shank for your Swagman XP # S64960 is part # P315, as long as your rack was manufactured after 2009. The # P132 shank you referenced is a replacement shank for Swagman 3 bike racks, and is not designed to accommodate 4 bikes nor is it designed to work with your Swagman XP model. I have confirmed this by phone with Swagman. The # P315 does feature a threaded pin hole. According to my Swagman representative, there is not a 2 inch only shank available for your bike...

  • Replacement Swagman XC Shank Recommendation to Allow an XC Rack to Be Used in a 1-1/4 inch Hitch
    It sounds like you need the Replacement 1-1/4 inch and 2 inch Shank for Swagman XC Series Bike Carriers # P306. This product can be used on older model Swagman XC bike racks that originally only were designed for 2 inch hitches to allow them to be used on 2 inch and 1-1/4 inch hitches like you have.

  • Way to Convert a 2 inch Swagman Original Bike Rack to be 1-1/4 inch Hitch Compatible
    Yes, you would want the Replacement 1-1/4 inch Shank part # P315. This will replace the shank of your Swagman Original Bike rack part # S64400 and will let you install it in either a 2 inch or 1-1/4 inch hitch. If you plan on installing this rack into a Class I hitch you should note that you will be limited to only carrying 2 bikes.

  • Replacement Fold-Down Foot for Swagman Original and XP Series 3 Bike Carriers
    I spoke with Swagman and the replacement shank, # P310, is not a fit for the 2005 XP bike rack. My contact did say you could use replacement shank # P315 but then the bike rack will not fold. There is another option. You can use an adapter # HTAD to use the 2 inch bike rack with the 1-1/4 inch hitch. But, the use of an adapter will reduce the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent. You will need to make sure the combined weight of the bike rack and the bikes does not...

  • Replacement 2 inch Hitch Adapters for Swagman XP Bike Rack and Curt Cargo Carrier
    The only way we offer the 2 inch adapter for your Swagman XP # S64960 is with the replacement shank part # P315. Since Curt does not have replacements available for their shank adapters you'd need a sleeve adapter like the part # HT02 and you'd be set.
