Product description not entirely true... webpage description says this fits "and all models of the DoubleDown bike carrier". This is not true since the threaded screw hole on the older Double Down racks are on the bottom of the tongue which puts the hitch pin hole also on the bottom. So to remedy this you have to drill your own hitch pin hole one the side of the adapter to make it work. No instructions or explanation is provided by etrailer regarding this so you have to figure it out yourself by looking at past reviews or through intuition. Otherwise seems like it should work fine.


Comments
Thank you for your review! I can see where one could read the description and think it is a universal fit. But, if you notice the specifications, all products that this works as a replacement for are listed: Application: DoubleDown 2 Y02423, DoubleDown 4 Y02424, DoubleDown 5 Y02425, FlipSide Y02426, StickUp Y02420, BuckHorn Elite 8002442 bike carriers Also fits the following discontinued Yakima products: BuckHorn 4 Universal 8002430. I hope this helps clear up the confusion!

The replacement for original 2" adapter for the YAKIMA DobeDown ACE 2,4,5 bike rack doesn't work. The screw and the insert safety pin holes are in the same face side. It may make work for this bike rack, drilling the safety pin hole in the left side. This adapter my be perfect replacement for the YAKIMA Flipside DoubleDown, only.


Comments
Thank you for your review. This hitch adapter is not designed for the DoubleDown Ace bike rack. You will need part # Y8890342

It fit perfectly on my Yakima hitch, however I think i may need to get the screw that hold it in place in the car- hitch because i am not able to secure it with tge current bolt that i have. So I’m doing some research to what kind of bolt I need to use in order to securely use the bike trailer hitch.

Yakima hitch adapter has worked well. Nice to have a company like etrailer to offer high quality products and excellent customer service

Perfect fit with a Curt 2" hitch and a used Yakima Doubledown 4 bike rack I picked up that didn't have the 2" adapter anymore. I tried a generic from Amazon, which didn't work well, so then bought this. Looks to be solid quality, and is a perfect fit.

This is exactly what I needed. I bought a slightly used Yakima bike rack that was made to fit a 1 1/4 hitch. This adapter worked perfectly to convert the 1 1/14 to fit my 2 inch hitch. Couldn't be happier.

Website was easy to order my parts. Kept me informed of who was packing my order when it would be delivered And it arrived on the day they said i would get my package. Awesome job

Fits perfectly on my old one and a quarter inch Yakima Bicyle rack (two bikes).



- Y8890174

The product was produced in such a way that if I mounted my Yakim rack ti it the bike rack would stick out sideways. So I had to redrill the safety alignment holes. Also the original hole is misplaced and blocked by the locking system Ie this dsng


Comments
Please keep in mind this adapter only works to convert DoubleDown 2 Y02423, DoubleDown 4 Y02424, DoubleDown 5 Y02425, FlipSide Y02426, StickUp Y02420, BuckHorn Elite 8002442 bike carriers to fit 2 hitches.

etrailer was able to provide me with the parts I needed to repair the 2" adapter for my Yakima bike rack. The parts are completely compatible with Yakima's specifications. etrailer's service was quick and helpful.

Product works fine, but mine shipped without the screw or hex wrench shown. Just know, if you buy it, you may have to purchase the screw. The screw needed is a 1/4-20 X 1/2" button head. Would have been 5-stars had I not had to drive to the hardware store to buy a screw to use the adapter.


Comments
The adapter worked out well, with no rattle or movement when the rack is properly installed. No issues, It just does what its supposed to.

Yakima has always impressed me. I worked in a bicycle shop for over 5 years selling their products and came to highly value their products for their quality and smart design. This part is no different. Just a solid inexpensive solution to converting your 1 1/4" bike rack into 2". Fast and easy installation and all tools provided in great packaging! Also, this was my first experience ordering from etrailer but it was painless and fast over the phone! Thanks guys so much for a great buying experience!

Product is still meeting my expectations!!! I just ordered another similar product for a new bike rack I purchased!!! Thanks guys for another easy transaction!!!

Worked perfectly with older Yakima bike rack. etrailer shipped fast and really appreciate that. We ordered a hitch assembly for a Sienna van from etrailer last year and it arrived fast as well. The hardest part was finding someone to install it and were lucky to find a good mechanic to help us out. I wouldn't hesitate ordering from etrailer again - they haave great customer service, fast shipping, and their products are good quality!

This piece has worked out perfectly for connecting my trailer hitch to my Yakima bike rack.



- Y8890174
by:

It did fit on my Saris bike rack, but I did have to drill an additional hole on the shaft to get the small screw in that locked down the adaptor piece. Once that was done the large holes lined up perfectly so that every time I need to put the rack into my trail hitch there was no frustration when lining up the holes. And from now on I won't be leaving the shank adaptor in the hitch! It's permanently attached!



- Y8890174
by:

No stars for bad service, part seems ok but missing or lost set screw. ETrailer will not help me get a set screw, says I need to deal through Yakima. Now I have to figure out how to do that. One star for being open on Sunday.

Helen, I apologize for any inconvenience with your order and wanted to let you know that I have contacted customer service to assist you.

I bought a Yakima doubledown bike rack from someone off a local buy/sell app . After trying to attach it to my tow hitch I noticed it was missing a few things... So I got online and found etrailer and they had exactly what I needed. Very happy with the purchase.

Received it and attached it right out of the mailbox. Thank you for the good service!

I am hard to please but I can't find a single flaw with etrailer! Firstly, their range is phenomenal, which means that you can finally find that hard to get item. And secondly, their motto seems to be "first class service no matter how big or small your order"! oh yeah, that does sound like a commercial plug but the reality is that I am just another satisfied customer :-)

This was a quick and easy replacement for the original part, which was lot on our move across the country. Etrailer was FAST and fair with the whole transaction. I appreciated the video showing the part before I ordered it.

Etrailer did a fantastic job on all parts which I had been looking for several weeks to locate! Etrailer was able to locate all items. Several items, Yakima could not find or did not know when they might be possibly available. Etrailer contacted me both by email and phone in regards to: • Informing me that it would take a few weeks to receive all the items and could they send it in one package. • The expected shipping date of all items. • When the expected delivery date is. • When the items had been shipped • Did I receive the items and have any problems. Etrailer did a "FANTASTIC & OUTSTANDING" job! They have secured all my future business and I HIGHLY recommend them.

The part I ordered was perfect! The website gave me exactly what I reviewed and what I ordered. I would highly recommend etrailer.com.

eTrailer provided a reputable replacement part for our Yakima bike carrier at a very reasonable price. One year later, our bike carrier continues to function as well as it did on day one. Thanks to George and his team for the great service and reliable product.
