Purchased to interchange with 1.25 tongue for Yakima HoldUp. It's also an upgrade that now I can use 2" tongue and setup to carry 4 bikes. Great price and fast shipping. 548261

Yes, I Exchanged the 11/4 Yakima Tongue for a 2 inch Tongue. I was just about thinking of ordering a completely new Bike rack system and selling my old one, Then I thought how long I have used my Yakima Hold-Up Bike Rack, on so many rides, It's sturdy, It's dependable, and you can order parts quite reasonably with Yakima, thru etrailers. I would be a fool to part with it. If it's not broke why fix it. Thank-you eTrailers once again in having what I needed to to make the transition go so smoothly. Hope to have lasting partnership with your Company. 487487

Etrailer was great as part #8880580 arrived in a timely manner, and I was pleased with the ability of etrailer's web page to help me figure out my needs. My old Yakima 2 bike tray style bike carrier needed to fit into the 2 inch hitch of my new vehicle instead of the 1 1/4 inch hitch of my old vehicle. Yakima's replacement tongue part 8880580 gets swapped with the matching part on my old carrier, and this is where Yakima proved frustrating. The through hole on part 8880580 used for bolting the new tongue on to the body of the carrier was not cleanly made and required drilling to allow the mounting bolt to pass through. I needed to reuse my existing mounting bolt and nut, and for the price of 8880580 a new bolt and nut would have been considerate. A new spring loaded pin was provided, but the threaded boss I needed to screw the pin into was filled with welding splatter. I was using an adjustable wrench to thread the pin but decided to stop as the resistance was too high. The threaded hole was about an inch in diameter and way bigger than any of my taps, so I used small screwdrivers to laboriously pick out the worst of the splatter. The pin threaded in more smoothly, but again for the price I was not entirely pleased. Thanks to the etrailer web page I knew to order Y8890200, which is a longer hitch bolt as the old 1 1/4 hitch sized bolt would be too short for the 2 inch hitch. The new tongue and hitch bolt ultimately worked, but Yakima was sloppy in manufacturing my part 8880580, and installation required more time and effort than should have been necessary. 529879

etrailer shipped very quick with a great price. Was easy to switch out for the 1-1/4” tongue on our Hold Up hitch rack. However, the distance between the hitch pin hole and the end of the tongue is longer than the previous version. As a result, the tongue hits the spare tire behind the hitch before the pin holes line up on our 4Runner. I guess I’ll leave it on the other car now. 637453

I was able to order exactly the parts I needed (after calling your staff) to switch my bike rack from a small trailer hitch on my old Acura to a standard size hitch on my new pickup truck. I installed it with the new parts the day it promptly arrived. You guys are great!! 599166

We traded cars. The old car had a11/4" receiver for the Yakima HoldUp Bike Rack. The new car has a 2" receiver. The best price was at etrailer and they shipped the 2"replacement tongue the same day as ordered. 457324

Just what I needed. I had a 1/4" hitch Yakima Hold Up bike rack . Was having a hard time finding an adapter to fit (either too loose or too tight) to go up to a 2' inch hitch, Finally called customer service at Yakima. They do not advise using an adapter as the weight of the sleeve built for a 1/4' hitch does not support the hitch mount for 2" inch. They gave me the part number and recommended etrailer. Fast and easy online and delivered as expected. Sleeve fits perfect and no play in the hitch makes me feel more comfortable with bikes in tow. I do recommend getting the pin to fit the 2" as the pin I had for the 1/4" did not work. Happy Trails ! 400567

It is a good product. I would have given 5 stars but the plastic piece broke on the bolt, but thankfully it still works .. 377750
