So glad this arrived after being on backlog. Got a Swagman with two EBikes on the back of my Sprinter van. Waiting on the Kuat swing away, had to remove the bikes and Swagman to open the rear doors.......Awesome. The Kuat swing away is a solid piece of hardware, love the locking anti-rattle feature. Combined with the Swagman, not much movement even with two 50 lb bikes. Very little assembly with the Kuat.....went on in about 3 minutes ; ). Definitely recommend for anybody requiring rear access to their vehicle.

The swing out feature of the Kuat allows access to both rear doors. The swing out is a simple two step process which is not physically challenging which is important for a 73 year old. Hitch lock up is solid and secure with a release lever as a backup. Driverside swing is very helpful since access to the Travato sliding side door for camping is on the passenger side. I therefore do not have to move around the loaded bikes to access the side door. Swing out provides easier loading of the inside bike, allowing two people to load the heavier eBike. This was an unanticipated advantage. Rack in up travel position (no bikes) Presents a very sleek and stable look. Kuat hitch to the Travato hitch and the Yakima hitch to the Kuat hitch were all very strong and solid. Both the Kuat and the Yakima have strong built in hitch tighteners which create a solid not wiggle fit. With two hitch points this is a critical part of the hitch design. Very pleased with the Kuat to this point. A 100 trip with the bikes loaded is planned to determine if the system maintains the tight and secure fit and how well the bikes ride with the rack extended this far from the rear bumper of the Travato. My rear view camera will be very handy. My only concern at this point is the distance of the bikes from the back of the Travato. I anticipate that some driving modifications and extra care will be required to limited bounce and flip of the whole unit. I am pleased that the bikes ride a safe distance above the ground. Thank you again for you efforts in getting the hitch to me in time to enjoy some early (though limited access due to Covid 19) summer trips.

Awesome product! I was looking for something to work in conjunction with my spare tire carrier on my Outback, and specifically needed a swing out that went to the driver's side. It seems everything on the market swings out to the passenger side and that was not what I needed. Product is extremely high quality and had minimal assembly. I am very happy with this product.

This is my second pivot. I had the passenger swing arm prior and I also bought the NV 2.0 with add-on through etrailer.com which was my third NV 2.0. Theses racks are the BEST!!!!!!!!!. No need to ever buy another rack system in my opinion. Unfortunately this new gear went on my RV which is now covered for the winter so action pics are not currently available. I also have to say the etrailer.com was did a great job keeping me in the loop with delivery times due to COVID and greatly appreciated the continued updates until all my gear arrived. Much appreciated!

Review from a similar Pivot 2 Hitch Extender in Hitch Adapters


The Kuat Swing Away is wonderful! It is simple to install and works perfectly. In the past we have left our bikes behind because we either had to take them and the bike rack off the Jeep at every stop or leave the back door and window closed for the duration. This product completely solves the problem and looks good too. The etrailer review video was spot on and a big help in making our decision to buy. I highly recommend this product and, as always, etrailer.

We love our Kuat Swing Away. It has made taking the bikes so much easier. It is working perfectly, easy to open and close. Really happy we purchased this product

Review from a similar Pivot 2 Hitch Extender in Hitch Adapters


This is an excellent product. Very solidly made, easy to operate and easy to install/remove. I use it to swing my bike to the side so I can more easily access my hatch-area. Beware the small stub that sticks out however! It can bang your shins! The rack operation is smooth, and the safety-latch works very easily, and prevents the bikes from swinging back if the car is parked on a hill.

Review from a similar Pivot 2 Hitch Extender in Hitch Adapters


This was an add-on to our existing rack to get the entire loaded rack out of the way. Anyone that has road-tripped knows that when you can get to the back without taking of bikes first, is a pain. This simple add-on makes it painless. Solid materials, solid purchase.

Review from a similar Pivot 2 Hitch Extender in Hitch Adapters


I love the swing arm. Makes it super easy to open my back hatch door when the bike rack is on. It does push the bikes quite a bit further back behind that car which makes it much longer for parking, etc. but would rather have the swing arm than not!

Review from a similar Pivot 2 Hitch Extender in Hitch Adapters


Product is awesome...but the customer service was the best part of the experience. I ordered the Pivot V2 swing arm on Black Friday along with a Kuat hitch rack. After the order was placed I noticed that the Pivot V2 wasn't targeted for shipping until March of next year. I called customer service and the helpful Rep explained the COVID related supply chain issues they've been dealing with. She split the order so I could get the rack now (instead of waiting for both pieces to ship together). She also mentioned that the dates are conservative estimates. By some miracle both the rack and the swing arm showed up within two days of each other. Couldn't be happier w/ both (functionality is advertised and happy to get them both expeditiously).

So far the Kuat pivot has worked great. It’s definitely heavy duty and will do the job it’s meant to do. I’m very happy with it. I’ll be driving across country with it soon and I will have no problem trusting $15,000 worth of bikes attached to it on my 1up quick rack.

  • Can the Kuat Pivot 2 Swing Away Hitch Extender Be Turned Upside-Down To Swing Both Ways
    The Kuat Pivot 2 Swing Away Hitch Extender for Bike Racks comes in two styles, part # PVD20B which opens towards the driver side and part # PVP20B which opens towards the passenger side. The reason they make two options is so you can have the bike rack swing away from traffic no matter which side of the road you drive on which is not the same for all countries. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend you just flip the swing away upside-down as Kuat does not recommend this. If it was possible,...

    The Thule Apex # TH9027XT has similar dimensions to the Yakima Full Swing # Y02465 and will come in contact with your spare tire if you try to swing the back trunk door open. I attached a picture where we tried this bike rack with a Jeep with a spare tire and it did not clear. The common issue with bike racks that sit far out enough to clear the spare tire is that they are still too high to clear the back door even when tilted or swung away.

The TRS 2 rack lets you carry up to 2 electric bikes weighing up to 65 lbs each, and can handle fat tire bikes with tires up to 4.5" wide.

  • Which Kuat Pivot do you Recommend for my Jeep Wrangler with Oversize Tires?
    For your situation either will work but I like the Kuat Pivot 2 Swing Away Hitch Extender for Bike Racks - 2" Hitches - Driver's Side part # PVD20B that you looked at. This allows the rack to swing to the driver's side rather than the passengers so it will allow you to open the door with no worries of the oversized tire coming into contact with the bikes on the rack.

  • Will Kuat Pivoting Assembly part # PVD20B Allow Access to Rear Door of Mercedes Sprinter
    Yes, with the Kuat Pivoting assembly part # PVD20B swung out all the way you would be able to fully swing open the rear door of your Sprinter. We had a customer with a similar Sprinter send us a picture where you can see that it would give the clearance and they told us it worked well. Kuat actually designed the pivot with the Sprinter in mind so we know it works well in that regard as well.

If there are any videos out there showing the Transfer 2 TS02G installed on this swing away extender then they are incorrect. For safety purposes only bike racks with a solid 2" shank should be used.

In regards to weight, you have a 250 lb limit so this will be the weight of the bike rack with bikes or the weight of the cargo carrier with cargo.
