Yakima BackSwing Demonstration Swing Away Hitch Extender

The Yakima BackSwing converts your existing 2" bike rack into a swing-away rack, giving you complete access to your hatch or tailgate area. This swing-away hitch extender is also compatible with other 2" hitch accessories, like cargo carriers and grills. The BackSwing installs in your 2" hitch with the included anti-rattle hitch pin, and a SKS hitch lock deters theft of the extender.


Swing-Away Design for Full Access to Rear Cargo Area

Yakima BackSwing Ford F-150 with 4 Bike Rack Demonstration

The BackSwing features a hinged arm that lets you swing the rack, or accessory, 90 degrees away from the rear of your vehicle. This provides maximum access to your vehicle's rear cargo area and eliminates the need to unload or remove the accessory when you're unloading cargo or letting your dog hop in or out of the back.


Yakima BackSwing Works with Jeep with Spare Tire Full Access

Because the BackSwing also works as a hitch extender, it's perfect for vehicles with a rear-mounted spare tire.


Yakima BackSwing Lever Safety Latch Demonstration Swinging Open

To open the hinged arm, simply disengage the release lever, pull the spring pin, and swing the rack away from the rear of your vehicle. The BackSwing will easily rotate outward to provide an additional separation from the rear of the vehicle. The arm will lock into place once it's fully extended at 90 degrees, so your hands are free to open your hatch and remove cargo.


Yakima BackSwing Lever Safety Latch Demonstration Swinging Close

To close the BackSwing, just pull the release lever at the end of the adapter and swing the extended arm back into position. Once you hear the spring pin lock into place, put the safety latch back into position, and you're ready to go.


Compatible with Most 2" Hitch Accessories

Yakima BackSwing Swing Away Hitch with Bike Rack

This versatile hitch extender will work with most bike racks or hitch accessories with a 2" shank. It works with both platform and hanging bike racks, and it can support up to 4 bikes on either syle of rack. The BackSwing has a weight capacity of 250 lbs, not including the weight of the bike rack or bikes, so keep in mind the weight of your rack when deciding how many bikes can be safely loaded for your application.


Yakima BackSwing Swing Away Hitch Extender with Cargo Carrier

The BackSwing also works with hitch-mounted cargo carriers to provide expanded storage without limiting access to your vehicle's hatch or tailgate area. You can even pair it with a hitch-mounted grill, allowing you to pivot the grill out away from the vehicle, while retaining full access to coolers and supplies while grilling.


Before mounting your accessory, be sure it is a compatible hitch accessory. The BackSwing is only compatible with accessories that have a dedicated 2" shank, and it shouldn't be used with any type of adapter. If you aren't sure if your acessory is compatible with a hitch extender check with the accessory's manufacturer. Once confirmed, slide your accessory's shank into the BackSwing, install the accessory's hitch pin, and then follow any specific directions the accessory has for installation.


Yakima BackSwing Swing Away Hitch Extender Stablizer Bolt Securing Accessory

Once you have secured the shank of the accessory into the BackSwing's receiver, tighten down the stabilizer bolt and nut on top of the receiver tube until snug. This will hold the accessory in place and ensure a tight connection that reduces movement and noise while on the move.


Easy installation with Threaded Hitch Pin

The BackSwing installs quickly and easily with a threaded, anti-rattle hitch pin. Simply slide the shank into your 2" hitch receiver, insert the threaded hitch pin, and tighten it down with a wrench. This will also reduce noise and movement while the extender is installed. The unit comes with a hitch lock that uses a Yakima Same Key System (SKS) lock core to secure the extender to your vehicle. SKS cores can be swapped out to make all your Yakima products keyed alike.


Lastly, the BackSwing is only compatible with 2" receivers and shouldn't ever be used with a hitch adapter, reducer, or extender.

Yakima BackSwing Swing Away Hitch Extender for Bike Racks - 2" Hitches - Y02483

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (46 Customer Reviews)

This hitch extender converts your existing bike rack or hitch accessory into a swing-away rack. It rotates out 90 degrees to provide easy access to the rear of your vehicle. Fits 2" hitches and bike racks that hold up to 4 bikes. Lock included.

by:

Solid, bullet proof, yet the convenient swing away allows unrestricted access to the back of my vehicle. It is heavy, but being made of steel, it holds a heavy load. I have an old solid steel Thule rack that I modified so that I can move the bike carrier bars 180 degrees - from the traditional position carrying the bikes away from the car and carrier, or flipped over so that the bike carriers rest on my spare and carry the bikes between the rack and the car. This allows me to carry very heavy bikes, such as e-bikes compactly without extending the length of my vehicle much, and still allowing me to use the swing away feature of the Yamaha extender. Photo shows a light road bike on the hitch, but it works equally as well with heavier or multiple bikes.

Great solution to use hitch mounted bike rack while maintains easy tail gate access
WJ - 04/15/2022


by: 06/24/2022

The Yakima Backswing works great as it was designed for. It let me access the back door of my sprinter. I am not happy with the services because of the missing hardware and it took two months to get all the hardware.




by:

High quality product. Fits my stock JK Wrangler hitch. Allows clearance for my slightly oversize tire and swings out far enough for access to the back of the Jeep. Easy install with no hiccups. I use it for my fat tire E-bike with no problems. I do not keep my bike rack installed all the time due to the length of the swing arm and bike rack combined adding extra length to my daily driver Jeep. Check out the pics. Installation of the bike rack is very easy to do. I ride my bike daily and at times have need to get picked up due to mechanical problems. Since I don't have the bike rack on the Jeep my wife has to install the bike rack in order to come get me. I have a rolling cart jack with the bike rack so my wife can load up the rack in just a few minutes to get me and the bike. The swing arm and bike rack tends to place the bike a distance from the back of the Jeep but it also allows easy access for the install and prevents the pedals and other bike parts from contact with the Jeep. Very pleased with this unit. My bike rack is a 2 bike rack but I have removed one side.




by:

The product came in a timely manner and everything went together perfectly. I’m using the swing hitch to carry a Champion 2000 dual fuel inverter generator (see picture) on a TorkLift generator carrier. The generator is being used to power a portable 200 square foot Hisense A/C. I ran the truck down the highway and everything is solid.




by:

Another excellent Yakima product. Now I can get in and out of my truck camper without climbing over bikes. Great service from eTrailer




by:

This is awesome. I am now able to use the back door on my Jeep and still keep my bike on the rack.
This is my second item purchased from e-trailer. You need to let the people of Rad electric bike know about your great products.

I am posting some pictures on the Facebook page for the other owners.

Thanks again

Great. We have traveled to cape cod and used our electric bikes on there trails. With out this bike rack I don’t believed I would transport the bikes anywhere. Thanks. We are super happy.
James R - 02/15/2020


by:

Received the Universal Spare Tire Carrier yesterday. It is exactly what I expected and will work perfectly for my Class B motorhome. Once I receive the balance of my order (Yakima Backwing) I will be set.

Thank you etrailer.




by:

This product seems to be really well built. I just got back from a 3 day off-roading trip. No issues what so ever and we encountered hours of extremely rough roads. This allowed me to carry gear and cleared my aftermarket tire carrier.




by:

One of the best accessories I’ve bought for my Jeep!! It makes traveling with a hitch basket SO easy! Prior to getting this, I would have to get on the ground to unlock the basket hitch, have my wife help me pull it off (with or without stuff on it), and then finally have access to the trunk. We travel with our dogs in a cage system in the back buckled in so this process made bathroom stops almost a 45min ordeal. With the Backswing I can get into the trunk area in 15seconds, what used to take 5mins or more. AMAZING!!!

Phenomenal!!!

I am excited about using the Yakima backswing on my camper van to haul bicycle and cargo carrier on different outings. Manufacturer’s Box arrived on my porch unwrapped with a hole poked on the front of the box. Hope nothing is missing inside since the box was not wrapped nor taped closed!




by:

Best rack ever. Sturdy, solid, easy to use, no shaking. Love love love it. A plus is that it folds up when bikes are removed. You do need to still lock your bikes to it though. Additionally though, we purchased a swing hitch so this track smoothly slides out and we can easily open the hatchback of our Ford Explorer. We already recommended these 2 products from this company. They were very helpful and helped me find the best product for us. All delivered quickly, purchased over the phone.




by:

I installed this unit on my Sprinter van because my bike racks did not have enough clearance for the rear doors to open. The BackSwing was as advertised. It provided plenty of clearance for both doors to open without interference. I've purchase a few items from etrailer and have not been disappointed.


Comments
Weve taken several road trips and the Back Swing has worked as advertised with no issues.
Jake - 12/05/2020


by:

Works perfectly




by:

Purchased this to use with the Yakima HoldUp EVO bike rack. It's very convenient to be able to swing the bikes out of the way instead of having to remove them to open the tailgate, especially when it may not be necessary (or practical) at the time to take the bikes off your rack.

It requires tools and doesn't install as quickly as the HoldUp EVO, so I don't use it in quick trips around town, but you can leave it installed and take the bike rack on an off if necessary.

Solid steel construction and durable.




by:

Appears to be strong and well made.




by:

This allows us access to our truck camper while parked. It is very heavy duty and has had no issues. I am very happy with it after our first year!




by:

Used this in conjunction with a 2'x4' cargo carrier on the back of a jeep Wrangler. Works quite well even with the spare tire still mounted. The spare tire does keep the door from opening past about 80 - 85 degrees but it is more than enough room to open everything. The unit comes with a bolt and lock rather than a hitch pin and I drilled that out to accept a standard pin as I take this off and on very frequently and need the convenience of a standard pin and snap ring. Happy with the unit and fit.




by:

Nice unit. Installed on my 2019 Subaru Ascent. The way the factory hitch is on this vehicle (very high) any accessory like a bike rack or tray is going to be hit by the lift gate. This takes care of that. Assembled easy except for one snap ring that needed some extra efforts to install. Attached a tray carrier and seems to be a nice set up . I may end up bolting tray hitch pin to allow it to be tightened up assure it doesn’t wiggle too much. If your tray or bike rack has a locking pin set up that would be the best. It does add a bit more than a foot of length to the whole set up. In my case I would have needed to install an extension anyway so this is the best option.




by:

Love this extender. After a year of use, it has worked flawlessly and shows minimal signs of use. I highly recommend this product.




by:

Does exactly what it says.




by:

works great, fits perfect to our etrailer subaru hitch i had installed in the spring and our 15 year yakima bike rack mounted right on




by:

I use this in conjunction with a Hollywood bike rack. They are on a Chevy Express van with cargo doors. I haul 2 tandems. This set up has been a life saver.




by:

Game changer! Easy to assemble and install. Nice smooth rounded design vs other swing adapters I was researching. Heavy duty for sure. Nice product Yakima! Installed in 2016 Chevy Suburban LT.

Thank you etrailer.com for the videos reviews. Was a major influence in making this purchase!

Also- it came 2 days early!




by:

Product functionally works great! The only flaw is that the plastic cover around the main hinge sits in front of the exhaust pipe and has melted a bit. My car makes a low hum when getting up to higher speeds and I think it's due to air getting under the melted plastic and causing a vibration but I can't test this theory.




by:

Great cust. service and keeping me updated, Yakima products have been hard to find, great job!

  • Why Does Yakima BackSwing Appear Damaged
    I wouldn't be very happy if I just go a new damaged Yakima BackSwing, part # Y02483, either. The good news is that yours actually isn't. The BackSwing has an intentional bend in it that looks like a dent. Yakima designed it that way on purpose because it positions the BackSwing so that it gains and additional 2 degrees of ground clearance.

  • Why Can't Yakima BackSwing Bike Rack Swing Away Adapter be Used at Rear of Motorhome
    At the rear of a motorhome is much rougher than at the rear of a vehicle. This is due to the much larger distance between the rear axle of the vehicle and the rear of the vehicle that exaggerates the bumps similar to how the seats at the back of a school bus are much rougher than the front seats.

    I have not heard of there any issues with legality and the use of the Yakima BackSwing Swing Away Hitch Extender # Y02483 on any vehicle. I can, however, say that this will work perfectly on a Dodge ProMaster as I have had a few people ask me about the # Y02483 for use on a ProMaster and they were very happy with it.

  • Solution For Excess Movement And Free Play In Yakima Backswing
    I see the movement you are referring to in the attached video. The Yakima BackSwing Swing Away Hitch Extender # Y02483 will likely add some form of bounce or movement compared to not using it at all since it adds a few components and moving parts to the bike rack setup. But in this case, the excess free play was likely due to the latch needing an adjustment and needing to be tightened down more. This latch connects the two pieces of the swing away hitch extender together and is typically...

  • Using A Rack Swing Arim With A 2020 Mercedes Sprinter Van
    The rack swing arm I recommend is the Yakima BackSwing Swing Away Hitch Extender For Bike Racks, part # Y02483. Any extender will add extra length to your vehicle. Our options will all add about 14" onto your bike hitch rack configuration. I also prefer the Yakima Backswing because it weighs less than the other options. The Yakima BackSwing only weighs 35lbs. This extender will lock to your vehicle and it also has an anti-rattle hitch pin to eliminate movement between the rack and the hitch...

The Yakima BackSwing Swing Away Hitch Extender # Y02483 will extend 11-3/4" from the hitch pin center to the center of the swing arm. You can test your sensors with an object at this distance behind your Tesla to see if the sensors detect it at the receiver height.

    If your Thule Vertex has a shank compatible with a 2 inch receiver only (not a 1-1/4 inch shank with the adapter sleeve) then yes, the Yakima BackSwing Swing Away Extender # Y02483 would work. Unfortunately, Thule (nor any of our other vendors) offer a swinging adapter that's compatible with a 1-1/4 inch shank or a 1-1/4 inch shank with an adapter sleeve.

To get your swing away, I recommend the Yakima BackSwing # Y02483 which is 14-1/2 inches from pin to pin and will be away from the spare tire with restricted clearance versus on top.

  • Why Do Swinging Bike Racks All Swing Towards Passenger Side
    The reason bike racks all swing to the driver side is because when people pull over on the side of the highway they almost always pull to the right side. So if you were on the side of the highway and needed to swing the bike rack out you wouldn't want to swing it out into traffic. That's why the bike rack manufacturers like Yakima make their pivots like the part # Y02483 swing to the passenger side.
