Replacement Spine for Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike Rack for 1-1/4" Hitches - Gray - Y80126

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (5 Customer Reviews)

Replaces the spine for your Yakima HoldUp 2 bike rack for a 1-1/4" hitch receiver.


Worked great to convert my original 2" Hold up into something that would work with a 1 1/4" hitch. Threads on the hitch pin insert were a little dirty and I had to chase them with a tap to get the pin to thread correctly.

I also had to notch the end of the insert so it would sit far enough into the hitch to get a solid connection. More of a hitch problem than a problem with this particular product but worth me ntioning.

Ryan,Thank you for your review.This is the correct yakima spine to convert your older version of the Hold up from a 2 to a 1 1/4. Although, this is the correct part for a 1 1/4 inch hitch it is still a class 2 accessory. If your hitch receiver is a class 1 hitch then the tab you mentioned is there for safety reasons. The tab is in place to make sure customers do not exceed their weight rating for the class 1 hitch and will not allow class 2 accessories to be used in the hitch. If you file the tab out you may void your warranty and overload your hitch leading to failure in the future. If your 1 1/4 hitch is a class 2 hitch the pin you would need is part # Y8880129

I had a 2011 Yakima Hold Up with a 2" hitch that I used on my 2011 Dodge Ram, along with the extender so it could carry 4 bikes. Now I've got a small hybrid car that can only take a 1.25" hitch. This product was the most cost effective solution. It allowed me to still use most of the parts from my old rack, rather than throw it all out and start over. Was able to change it all out in a half hour. Everything was a great fit... wasn't sure what to expect as I thought my rack was so old. My old part was quite worn anyway, so this is a great refresh. Highly recommend this product and also this website. Part arrived 2 days sooner than promised.


The product was adequately packaged per a spec for an object this size and weight. Assembly instructions were easy to follow and require only common hand tools. My suggestion to the manufacturer (Yakima) is that they include the hitch bolt, as the hitch bolt for the 2" version is different than the 1 1/4" version. Consequently I found myself calling local dealers to purchase the 1 1/4" hitch bolt. As for eTrailer, I appreciated the fast shipping.


Exactly as advertised. Sturdy with secure locking in either up or down position.
I plan to use this as a base for a light duty cargo carrier. The combination of extra ground clearance for the cargo floor and the ability to fold it up when empty both made this the perfect place for me to start.


Excellent customer service. Great product and fast shipping.
