- Y02446

I have an older Holdup model, but this current one fits just perfect. They have improved the wheel strap design, and include a few extra parts—such as the hitch pin, and pin that locks the rack in the upright position. It was nice to replace a few beat up parts! The keyed locks did not match my original, but Yakima has a process to request new ones. Really happy with it—and glad etrailer doesn’t have an oversized freight charge for shipping!

- Y02446

This rack is heavy once attached to the base unit, but ROCK SOLID! I have no worries of bikes shifting or bouncing around. It takes two people to install and remove the rack when set up for all four bikes. If i am only taking 1-2 bikes, I definitely remove this from the base unit to make it more manageable.

- Y02446

Ultra heavy-duty setup and the weight capacity crushes everything else on the market. Pair the four bike setup (HoldUp and a Plus 2) with a BackSwing for the ultimate bike hauling experience. Works with large and heavy bikes, ala electric.

- Y02446

Great price on the +2 extender for my Holdup. Just installed with no issues, thanks to clear instructions from the etrailer.com website.

Delivered on the estimated date in perfect condition at a great price.

  • Yakima HoldUp Plus Two Extension Part # Y02446
    The Yakima HoldUp Plus 2 is intended to be used with the Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike rack, part # Y02443. It slides into the end of the bike rack, and is held in place by a retaining pin. The wheels of the bike rest in the wheel hoops, and the padded ratcheting hook secures the bike from the top of the wheel. I will provide a link to the instructions for the HoldUp. You can find the links below. I have also linked you to some product demonstration videos you might find helpful.

  • Is there a 2-Bike Add-On for the Yakima StickUp Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack
    The Yakima StickUp, # Y02420, is stuck being a 2-bike rack. There is no add-on that will allow you to carry 4 bikes. Since you need to carry 4 bikes you have some options. You can go with a full time 4-bike rack or you can go with a 2-bike rack that does have an add-on feature that will allow you to carry 2 bikes when needed. I will give you the best options for each of these racks based on similar functionality and other characteristics displayed by the StickUp. For a strictly 4-bike...

  • Recommended Platform Bike Rack Compatible With EcoHitch Invisi-Hitch on 2013 Subaru Impreza
    I'll start by saying that because the EcoHitch # 306-X7211 is a completely hidden receiver on your 2013 Subaru Impreza Sport, you're going to need to use a bike rack that has a bit longer shank and will get it out away from the vehicle in order to have full functionality. The length of the shank in front of (towards the exhaust) is still important, but the distance available behind the hitch pin hole is going to be more important in determining the functionality of the rack. Because...

  • Can Yakima Plus 2 2-Bike Add-On be Used with Replacement Spine to Make a HoldUp Rack
    Since the front/rear trays that come on the Yakima HoldUp 4 Bike Rack # Y02443-2 are the same for both the regular rack and the Plus 2 2-Bike Add-On # Y02446 I see absolutely no reason why you can't simply install the trays onto the Replacement Spine # 8890277 to have a 2nd HoldUp bike rack. Please note that if you want to use these bike racks apart from each other you'll need a second hitch bolt and clip # Y8890200. If you want to upgrade the bike rack to include a lock on the hitch...

  • Ladder Rack and Tonneau Cover Combination for 2018 Ford F-150 Short Box for Kayak Transport
    Thank you for all the details on your desired setup. In my opinion nothing compares to the combination of the TracRac SR adjustable ladder rack and BAK Revolver hard tonneau cover. Both of these are outstanding products and they are fully compatible with each other on your F-150 short box. The USA-made TracRac SR sliding ladder rack # TH43002XT-508 has a 1250-lb weight rating and includes adjustable load stops. This rack gives you the wide crossbar stance and weight capacity you...

  • Can I Add Two Additional Bikes To My Yakima Platform Bike Rack
    If you have the Yakima HoldUp Bike Rack part # Y02443 or the Yakima HoldUp EVO Bike Rack part # Y02479 then yes, you can use the 2-Bike Add-On for Yakima HoldUp part # Y02446 or the 2-Bike Add-On for Yakima HoldUp EVO part # Y02482 to carry an additional two bikes assuming you have the capacity on your hitch. These are the only two Yakima bike racks that have this capability.

  • Converting Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike Rack for 1-1/4 Inch Receiver for Use with 2 Inch Receiver
    I have a perfect solution for you. To convert your Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike Rack # Y02445 for use with the 2 inch receiver on your new vehicle, you can simply replace the tongue with the Yakima # 8880580. This is compatible with the 1-1/4 inch models to convert it for use with 2 inch receivers and is completely safe to use. It includes the updated latching spring pin. The Plus 2 2-Bike Add-On # Y02446 that allows the carrier to hold up to 4 bikes is not compatible with the # Y02445 for...

  • Comparing the Yakima HoldUp 2 and the Kuat Sherpa 2.0
    Between the Yakima HoldUp 2, part # Y02443 and the Sherpa 2.0, part # SH22G, I personally like both, however, they are built around different bikes and uses. The Yakima HoldUp is a better rack if you have kids bikes, heavier bikes, or could possibly need a 4 bike carrier in the future. The rack is expandable to carry a total of 4 bikes with part # Y02446, or the two out of the base model. The HoldUp is also able to carry bikes with 14 to 29 inch wheels, covering a wide grouping of family...

  • Comparing the Yakima HoldUp 2 Part # Y02443 with the Kuat Transfer 2
    For your 2017 Lexus NX, the best bike rack for you is going to depend on the type of bikes you have and how often you plan to carry them. Both the Kuat Transfer 2 part # KU74FR and the Yakima HoldUp 2 part # Y02443 are excellent bike racks that will work well for you. However, I recommend the Yakima HoldUp as it has a bit more features that will work with your bikes and vehicle better than the Kuat Transfer will. For starters, the HoldUp can carry bikes weighing up to 60 lbs each whereas...

  • Alternative Bike Rack to Kuat NV 2.0 Base for 2020 Kia Sportage
    The Kuat NV 2.0 Base # BA22B is probably my favorite bike rack that we carry, and part of that is because you can add the extension # BA02B down the road if need be. An alternative option that I like is the Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike Rack # Y02443 which is comparable on all metrics aside from that it can only handle up to 3" wide tires as opposed to 4.8" wide tires like the Nv 2.0 Base. You can eventually add the Plus 2 2-Bike Add-On # Y02446 and then if you want to match all of the lock...

First some similarities. All three racks are capable of folding up against the rear of the vehicle when the bikes are removed, and all three can tilt rearward with the bikes in place, allowing easier access to the rear trunk or liftgate of the vehicle. All three racks include hitch locks of some...

  • Parts Needed to Use the Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike Rack for 2" Hitches with a 1-1/4" Hitch
    To convert your Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike Rack for 2" Hitches # Y02443 so that it will fit a 1-1/4" hitch receiver you need the Replacement Tongue # 8880581 along with the Hardware Kit # Y90195. Please note that when using this smaller tongue you cannot utilize the 2-Bike Add-On # Y02446. You will only be able to carry 2 bikes with the 1-1/4" tongue.

  • Comparing the Thule T2 and Yakima HoldUp Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Racks for a 2011 Mazda CX-9
    Bike racks are not vehicle specific there are just some that vehicle owners purchase more often for certain vehicles than others. Since you have a 2 inch trailer hitch on your 2011 Mazda CX-9, you can use the Yakima HoldUp, # Y02443. The Thule T2, # TH83JV will also fit. I have linked video reviews of both racks for you. Both racks are rated for 60 pounds per bike. The HoldUp will accept 14 to 29 inch bike wheels. The T2 will accept 20 to 29 inch bike wheels. The T2 will accept bike...

  • Will Black Yakima HoldUp Extension Fit Older Gray Yakima HoldUp Bike Rack
    The HoldUp has 3 generations. The first 2 were gray. I checked with Yakima and the extension, # Y02446, for the current generation black HoldUp is retro-compatible with the HoldUp (2009) 8002433 model. This is the version that only fits 2 inch hitches.

    The Swagman XTC4 4-Bike Carrier for 2-inch hitches, part # S64665, does have tilting upright masts to allow hatch access when not loaded with bikes but the main horizontal structure can drop only to a level position (as with bikes loaded and going down the road). It does not tilt down below the level position. With your four bikes loaded you will not be able to open your rear hatch. A better option for rear hatch access is the Yakima HoldUp 2-bike carrier # Y02443 partnered with the...

    We do have a few bike racks that can expand from 2 to 4 bikes but the Swagman rack for RV bumpers # S64663 is not one of them. If you need a rack at the back of an RV or trailer that holds 4 bikes then there are only certain bike racks that you can use. I have included a link to them for you. Not all bike racks are rated for the back of an RV or trailer. For a 4-bike rack that attaches to a 4 inch continuous welded steel bumper on an RV or trailer I recommend Swagman rack # S80600.

  • Maximum Tongue Weight Capacity of 2019 Honda Odyssey With Trailer Hitch for Bike Rack
    The tongue weight capacity - or the most a bike rack and loaded bikes can carry - is going to depend on the specific trailer hitch. For your 2019 Honda Odyssey the best hitch to use for a bike rack is the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Receiver # E98855 which has a tongue weight capacity of 525 lbs. The etrailer hitch # E98855 is the best option to use a bike rack because it offers the best bumper clearance with a distance of just three inches from the hitch pin hole to the bumper, as you...

    For a 2 inch hitch confirmed as a fit for your 2006 Honda CR-V the Draw Tite hitch part # 75690 that you referenced would be exactly what you would need. This will work well with the Yakima Holdup part # Y02443 you are interested in. If you ever needed to expand the bike rack to a 4 bike rack you'd only need the part # Y02446.

  • Best E Bike Carrier for a 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe for Girls E-Bikes
    For any kind of an alternate frame e-bike, your best rack is always going to be a wheel-mount, platform style carrier that fits into a trailer hitch. This is because the weight capacity and ease of loading are the best possible solution for carrying your e-bikes safely and easily. One of my favorite racks for e-bikes is the Yakima HoldUp, part # Y02443 . It is a wheel mount carrier that can hold a massive 60lbs per bike on a Class III hitch. It includes an integrated hitch and cable...

    While the Thule Apex XT 5 Bike Rack # TH9026XT does have a weight capacity of 150 lbs, this is for when it is fully loaded to 4 or 5 bikes (30 lbs - 35 lbs per bike). The individual cradles won't be able to handle a 50 lb bike so we'll need to find an alternative to transport your E-Bike. An alternative option from Yakima is the HoldUp 2 Bike Rack # Y02443 which can carry up to 2 bikes weighing 60 lbs each.

  • Recommended Add-On Kit For Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike Rack
    In order to add an extension to be able to carry an additional 2 bikes on a Yakima HoldUp bike carrier like part # Y02443, you would need a bit more than just part # Y8890279 and the wheel trays. You would need the upright masts needed to secure the bike frame to the extension, so I recommend part # Y02446 to make sure you have all the components needed to be able to carry 2 more bikes.
