Video Transcript for Yakima Fat Tire Straps Review

Toady we're going to be reviewing the Fat Tire Straps for Yakima TwoTimer and FourTimer Hitch-Mounted Bike Racks, part number Y02470. The extra long ratcheting straps allow you to carry one fat tire bike on your Yakima TwoTimer, which we have her, part number Y02468 or on you Yakima FourTimer, part number Y02469. All you'll need to do is replace your front and rear wheel straps to accommodate for your fat tire bike. Our fat tire straps are going to fit around most of your fat tire bikes. Now, we do have a 4.6 here today and if we head around back, you can see we still have a little bit of excess there. The straps come in a quantity of 2 and have a limited lifetime warranty. Now that we've gone over some features, we'll show you how to get it installed.

We already have the passenger side done since it's the same exact way, we'll just show you on the driver's side. Now, the first thing we're going to do is release the strap and then we'll come to the front here and push down this center tab and then we're going to push on our strap until it slides through and then we can pull it out on the other end. We're going to feed our fat tire strap through on the outside slot and pull up until that clicks into place there. We'll then feed our strap through and secure it in place. Now we can load up our bike.

That's going to complete our look at the Tire Straps for Yakima TwoTimer and FourTimer Hitch-Mounted Bike Racks, part number Y02470.

Extra-long wheel straps let you hold a fat bike on your Yakima TwoTimer or FourTimer bike rack. Replace the existing wheel straps with these longer straps to hold tires up to 4-1/2" wide.


I hadn't used the straps yet and held off from submitting the review. Had a friend show me how the original straps worked on my bike rack and the larger straps are not necessary now. I plan to keep them in case the ones I have wear out and/or I need to use them to strap a fat tire bike down?

The straps do appear to be of good quality and durable.


These replacement straps make my Yakima Fourtimer rack capable of taking any bike with any size tire. I already had them on 2 of the 4 positions and ordered these will finish out the rack. Great OE product, great price and fast shipping!


Worked on another bike yakama rack I had I use 88 mm disc. Wheel and needed a longer strap got here on time thanks guys


They work great on my fat tire bike


Except for the wait time, they fit perfectly and are now ready to fit the new bike.


works perfect on my yakima rack for my fat tire bike. need to be aware that the standard yakima straps have "tracks" that go in different directions and can be racheted from either side. these replaces are "one way." just need to be aware of that so you don't cut the end off like i did and try to use it like the standard yakima straps. fortunately, my shipment was a pack of 2, and i only needed one, so it all worked out.

Still working great. thanks!

These straps were just what I needed for my fat bike. I've had Surly, Salsa, and Trek fat bikes loaded up on my rack and it has done a great job every time. These straps are solid and have held up over the past year that I've owned them, no signs of weathering.

2 years later and these straps have held up great. I do keep my car in a garage at home so they aren’t baking in the sun every day, but the rack stays on my car all the time.

etrailer is outstanding - needed a hard to find part which they found and then they kept me up to date on ordering status as they searched for (and located) another part that I needed. The customer service is fantastic - highly recommend!


Great product but even better customer service from etrailer.


Great/timely service and user-friendly website: I recently bought a Yakima Two-Timer hitch mount bike rack to transport two fat-tire bikes from a local store. But unfortunately the tire straps that come with the rack are not long enough to secure the oversized tires and accessory "Fat Straps" have to be purchased. After contacting all my local sports stores that carry Yakima products to no avail and discovering they were out-of-stock on the Yakima website, e-trailer came to the rescue!


Amended my bike rack with these longer stronger wider straps to accommodate my fat tire bike. Work well.

The straps are okay, but I am disappointed in the bike rack that was not cheap, where the latch pin on the right hand side has fallen out. When I look at other Yakima bike racks there are very few that still have the Latch Pin .... its obviously a design fault. We have two Yakima bike racks, and both of them have lost their latch pin.

Excellent! High quality Yakima fat tire straps for the two timer and four timer hitch bike mounts. Great quality, durable, and work perfectly. As always etrailer is excellent with all aspects of the purchase! A+


I've bought those for my yakmia Highroller roof racks with the hope that will fit. They did! Now i can mount my Specilized Fatboy with 4.6 " tires without using additional straps and cords! Great service from etrailer!!


I'm using it on the rear of a Front Loader with a 27.5+ & 3" tire and it's a little long and touches the roof. There's a 12.5" strap available on etrailer for the front loader that I bought from etrailer prior to this, and fit well, but it snapped when I was opening in 20 degree weather; hopefully this will hold up better. With a two pack I'll have a backup if it does break.


Performed as expected, I use them for fat tire bike on my Yakima tray, I had to drill out the front rivets to remove the plastic wheel piece so the front wheel would fit.


Just bought these to extend the length of the OEM straps on another brand bike rack so I could use it with a fat tire bike. They work perfectly and etrailer ship time was very fast.


Although my parts were backordered, I was kept informed on a regular basis as to the status of my order. Once shipped, my parts arrived in a timely manner, exactly as ordered. Would definitely us wer etrailer again.


Just what I needed to properly secure my fat bike without using bungee cords.


Communication was great with the folks @ etrailer - the product I ordered was delayed from the manufacturer and they let me know right away. As soon as the product was available, they shipped it to me. Good service.


Great item.


Fat straps came earlier than expected and are exactly what etrailer said they would be!


They fit!!! That was great.Now i can secure the bike to the rack.


Holds fat tire bike great


Work very well for fat tire bike


Great product. Easy to install. Easy to use. Sturdy. Reliable.

  • Is There a Fat Tire Adapter for Yakima TwoTimer Bike Rack
    For the Yakima TwoTimer we don't have a wider wheel cradle to allow it to fit better with fat bikes but we do have a longer strap that allows the fat tires to secure better with part # Y02470. The wheel cradle you referenced would not be wider than what you have currently.

  • What is Difference Between Yakima FourTimer and FourTimer for Fat Bikes
    The difference is the wheel tray straps actually. The Yakima FourTimer 4 Bike Platform Rack # Y02469 comes with straps that are for standard tires. You simply add the longer strap # Y02470 needed to fit around the fat tires of the fat bikes. The wheel trays are actually the same. The straps allow tires up to 4-1/2 inches wide to fit the cradles. With 2 sets of straps you can carry 4 fat bikes on the FourTimer.

  • How Far Out Does Yakima FourTimer Bike Rack for Fat Bikes Extend
    Yakima lists 47 inches folded down from the center of the hitch pin hole to the end of the rack on the regular version of the FourTimer # Y02469. Adding the fat bike straps that are longer # Y02470 for tires up to 4-1/2 inches wide does not increase that distance.

  • Will Yakima Fat Tire Straps Y02470 Fit the Yakima Holdup Bike Rack
    The Yakima Fat Tire Straps # Y02470 that fit the TwoTimer and Four Timer hitch-mount platform bike racks will not work on their HoldUp carriers. I confirmed this with my contact at Yakima. The Hold-Up carrier cannot be retro-fitted with larger straps and wheel cradles to allow it to be used with fat bikes. Extra Long Wheel Strap # Y8880229 does fit the Hold-Up rack but it is intended for aerodynamic rims, not fat tires. Even if you did manage to get these installed you'd be risking your...

  • Replacement Straps for the Yakima FourTimer # Y02469 That are Not for a Fat Bike
    You can actually use the Replacement Extra Long Wheel Strap # Y8880229 for your Yakima FourTimer # Y02469. The Fat Strap # Y02470 is 16" long and the Extra Long part # Y8880229 that I referenced is 12-1/4" long and can accommodate up to 20" tires. I confirmed this with my contact at Yakima.

  • Fat Tire Straps for Yakima Forklift Bike Rack

    The distance from the center pinhole of Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76020 to the end of your 2019 Mazda CX-9 bumper will be about 7 inches. Fortunately, most trailer hitch bike racks have extra length on the shank to ensure that you will have enough room to both install the rack and allow you to open the back cargo hatch on the vehicle. I recommend the Yakima FourTimer # Y02469. The reason why this rack stands out above the others is that it will give you more room on...

  • 4-Bike Platform Rack to Fit Electric Mountain Bikes with 3 Inch Tires
    It sounds like you're asking about the Yakima FourTimer platform bike rack, part # Y02469. As is it only holds bike tires up to 2-1/2 inches wide but you can add the Fat Tire Straps, part # Y02470, to increase it to 4-1/2 inches. For a Yakima rack that fit up to 5 inch tires without needing additional straps look at the HoldUp EVO, part # Y02479-2. It also includes locks to secure the rack to your vehicle as well as the bikes to the rack.

  • Recommended Bike Rack For Carrying 4 Bikes Behind a Flat Towed Vehicle
    I recommend the Yakima FourTimer Bike Rack # Y02469 for your flat towed vehicle. This is a platform rack which I find to be much stronger and stable than your hanging racks. It mounts into a 2" receiver and is capable of carrying 4 bikes up to 45lbs each. The carrier itself weighs only 66lbs and the shank includes a 4" rise to help with ground clearance. The rack will secure the bikes in place with ratcheting hooks that hold the bike by the frame. Wheel straps also ensure the bike stays...

To get the Yakima Rack that is compatible with Fat Bikes, you would need the Yakima FourTimer Bike Platform Rack # Y02469 with Fat Tire Straps for Yakima TwoTimer and FourTimer # Y02470 for something similar.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your bike! I am assuming you are looking for a flat-towed approved bike rack for your 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL Unlimited with a 2-inch hitch. For a great rack, I recommend the Yakima FourTimer Bike Rack for 4 Bikes - 2" Hitches # Y02469. Not only are the FourTimer model approved to withstand the bouncing and force exerted on the rack while on a flat-towed vehicle, it also comes with a long shank that measures 12 inches from the center of the pinhole to the closest...

  • What is the Length of the Cradle Straps on the Yakima OnRamp Bike Rack?
    I confirmed with Yakima that the strap length of the Yakima OnRamp # Y96FR (for 1-1/4 inch hitches) and # Y36FR (for 2-inch hitches) is about 10 inches long. However, if you need a longer strap, you can switch out the original strap with fat straps # Y02470. These straps will work in the cradles of the OnRamp for attaching your bike's frame. They are 16 inches long. In order to know for sure if you have long enough straps, I recommend measuring the thickness of your Lectric XP 2.0's frame....

  • 4 Bike Carrier That Can Be Converted To 2 Bike Carrier For Bikes With Fenders
    I can definitely help you out with that! Your best option for a 2-bike carrier is the Saris Freedom 2 Bike Platform Rack for Fat Bikes - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Frame Mount # SA4412B-FB. This secures the bike by the frame, so it will not interfere with fenders or racks/baskets. The tire trays can fit tires up to 5" wide, so it works well with fat bikes. It also has a weight capacity of 60lbs per bike; if your bike weighs more than 60lbs then you can remove the bike's battery when transporting...

    In choosing between the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE 4 for Fat Bikes # HR1400Z-FB and the Yakima FourTimer # Y02469, I recommend the Yakima FourTimer for transporting your fat-tire bike, women's beach cruiser, and 2 20-inch kids bikes. One of the advantages of the FourTimer is that the rack has a longer measurement from the shank's pinhole to the closest part of the rack when folded up (12 inches compared to the 5 inches of the Sport Rider SE). This measurement is important for rear bumper...

  • What 4-Bike Bike Platform Bike Rack do You Recommend with a 1-1/4 Hitch on a 2018 Ford Fusion?
    I have a solution for you. If you are looking to carry up to 4 bikes on your 1-1/4" with a 2-inch adapter like the # HT5R, you will be over the hitch's weight capacity with bikes mounted on the Inno Tire Hold # INH142. This is because any time you use a hitch adapter on your vehicle, you decrease the overall hitch capacity by 50%. For example, if you have the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Class II - 1-1/4" # C12091 installed on your 2018 Ford Fusion, you will only have 175 pounds of total...

    Yes! We do have a class II hitch receiver for your 2021 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid. For that great hitch, I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class II - 1-1/4" # C66KR. The Curt hitch includes a gloss outer coat on top of the base powder coat to provide you with superior rust and corrosion resistance. Since the ground clearance measurement with this hitch is 10 inches from the ground to the bottom of the receiver tube, I recommend using an accessory with a rise such as the...

I recommend going with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver 1-1/4" # C11085 then using adapter Hitch Adapter 1-1/4" to 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver with 5" Rise # HT5R to convert it to 2".
