Great product that has served us well for over a year now mounted on a Draw-Tite 4285 draw bar with Curt A-90 ball, all purchased here. We can carry two bikes with this setup while pulling our small [email protected] travel trailer; not three due to limited clearance of our trailer's tongue jack, but that's all we need. It's fairly quick to setup & take down, though caution is required before releasing the tension when removing (I can mitigate the snapping together of the V supports by standing between the two horizontal support arms & keeping my own arms away from them). The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because I wish it was a few inches taller for better clearance between bikes & hitch coupler. It mounts very solidly though, and the sturdy rubber straps keep bikes secure. A hitch tightener can make it even more solid if the drawbar is loose. We've not had any problems after a dozen trips over the last year.

I am a 60 year old woman and I could handle installing and setting up this Curt Clamp-On 3 Bike Rack for 2" Ball Mounts! It worked really well and I did not hurt my hands installing it or removing it from the ball mount. I watched the etrailer.com video and that really helped too. This bike rack is solid and performed well when I test drove it around the neighborhood and over bumps. It stores in a compact fashion and I can see that I will be using this rack all the time to transport my bikes to the rail trail and when using my small pop up trailer too! It's perfect!

This is the best product online. I had to do a few adjustments to make room for the clamp on the trailer hitch. The particular ball hitch I had had a reinforcement welded to the ball which I had to have a piece taken off. Once it was filed down the clamp worked like a champ. Now I have a $200 bike rack that I purchased a year ago that is obsolete. The product arrived early and in good shape. I would definitely buy this bike rack and use this company again!


Comments
Thank you for your review. It looks like you have a draw-tite ball mount with a high rise. I cannot tell exactly how many inches of a rise your ball mount has from the provided photo but manufacturers like draw-tite will weld a reinforcement on the underside of ball mounts with a lot of rise. We do not recommend to trim these pieces because it can affect the structural integrity of the ball mount. However, we do have options for ball mounts without the welded reinforcements that will allow the curt bike rack part # C18013 to clamp around them. Draw-tite part # 40332
Draw-Tite Ball Mount for 2" Hitches - 5" Rise, 6" Drop - 10-1/4" Long - 16K
$65.54
provides a 5 inch rise and is rated up to 16k of towing weight. If you need more rise, Anderson ball mount part #A M3511 has a 9 inch rise but only allows for up to 8k in towing weight. Both of these ball mounts will work with this bike rack.

I was very impressed at how fast I received the CURT, Clamp-On Bike Rack in 2 days. Very easy to put on. Works perfectly on hitch/receiver, will work well for our trip to the East Coast, Nova Scotia & New Brunswick in July.

It’s been working out great. Hoping to get some more use of it this coming summer.

I investigated the Curt Clamp-On Bike Rack as an alternative to mounting my bikes on the rear of our 16' Fiberglass "egg" camper. We have a trusty old Thule version that has worked well, but I have become increasingly concerned with the risk of sway in having that much cargo to the rear of the trailer. So now we have one roof-mounted rack for one bike (leaving room also for a canoe) on our tow vehicle (Toyota Highlander), and will on future trips mount the other bike behind the tv on the new clamp-on rack. I see it as a simpler alternative to using a hitch adapter. The rack is sturdy, very well designed and built. At first when I unwrapped and examined it I thought, "Oh no, it's going to be a pain having to take off the hitch mount to insert it through the grips on the bike rack," but on further inspection I realized that it is (brilliantly) designed to open up far enough to fit over the 2" square shank, then close and lock in place. I tried it on the car just to see how it goes on and off, and it seems simple. We just got 4" of snow (a rarity in suburban Philadelphia), so we are doing whatever x-country skiing and winter hiking we can, but the arrival of this Curt Clamp-On rack gives me dreams and hopes for happy trails to come!

I bought this due to decent reviews. Shipping was rather quick, within 4 days of ordering. Loading all 3 bikes was very tight with two adult bikes and one child bike, but I made it work. As another person posted, the rack is pretty difficult to push down and secure. It takes a lot of force I don't think my wife could have done it. The first time when I tested installing, when I tried to release the rack, it released hard and hit my knuckles. The second time, the spring loaded pin broke (pictures attached) and, once again, my knuckles got hit. Caution really needs to be taken if you have this product. I am giving two stars for this due to the safety concern and the plastic handle breaking. I will be returning for a refund.

Just want to say that this is my first bike rack and wasn't looking to spend a lot. I also wanted the hitch ball free so I can pull a trailer if I wanted to. Rack is a bit tight for 3 bikes but once you do it a few times you figure out the best way to get them on and it's pretty quick afterwards. Took it on my longest trip this weekend, a 5 hour drive and no issues. Pretty steady and got the job done. Thought the price was great. Storage is also great, I actually keep it in the trunk at all times.

I've had the Curt Clamp-On Bike Rack for about a year now and overall I am happy with it. Plus Side . The mechanism that secures the rack to the hitch works well and along with the two stabilizing straps (these attach to my truck's tailgate) makes for a secure platform for hauling bicycles around . I've used it many times to haul 2 bikes without any issues . The rack attaches and detaches to/from my truck very quickly . I can now haul bikes and pull a trailer at the same time . A very good value Minus Side . The 6 rubber cradles that secure the bike to the rack are too small for many large diameter mountain bike style top tubes . Securing the rubber cradle straps to the rectangular nubs can be a bit difficult . One of the cradle straps is beginning to wear out


Comments
One Year Later: A year ago, I gave the Curt Clamp-on Bike Rack 3 stars, after another year of extensive almost daily use, I would elevate that rating to 4 stars. While I still feel that the rubber cradles are harder to use than need be, they have worn better than it seemed they were going to, and I have learned how to attach the bike to them with less effort I am a slow learner. Overall it is a very good product and I would buy it again

Strong build, very easy to put together, and disassemble for storage. The only downside is the metal loop is too short, so I use a strap to pull it up in order to not injure my hands. So far I drive 400 miles and the bike didn't even move.

This bike rack really is the most handy rack I've owned. It is extremely well made. My wife and I travel with a fifth wheel camper. I wanted something that I could use after getting to a campground, to load our bikes and travel to a trail head. And I wanted something I could remove easily after getting there, so someone would not steal it while we were riding. This rack hits the mark. I would recommend it to anyone wanting something handy, compact, and well constructed.

Excellent! It is still the best rack I have owned!

New style mountain bike frames are a bit difficult to fit 3 but other than that it's an excellent rack.


Comments
Bike rack works very well. Its intended to clamp directly to your hitch bar which works extremely well. My only warning is to watch where you put your hands as they can be pinched easily due to the pinching action of how the device locks to your hitch

The main reason that I purchased the C18013 bike carrier was that I had just also purchased the trailer hitch to mount it to. I was pleased with the quality and heavy gauge of the steel. It is very easy to mount the unit to the hitch bar. The clamp has a built in lock pin to insure it does not come loose. Be sure to use the trunk or hatch back straps to keep it from rocking left to right. The only concern is the shipping box they use. Since the bike carrier is heavy gauge, it caused the box to split open a little. No real problem, since everything was still there. I'm very satisfied with the purchase.

I purchased this along with a 16" hitch mount (#80232 ) to carry 3 bikes on the back of my truck while towing a camper. Installed fine (definitely requires some muscle to clamp it). But this mount slams together REALLY hard when removing it from the hitch, which bruised my hand very badly. (I'd recommend using a short 2x4 at a distance to release the tension bar to keep all your fingers). I saw other reviewers had this issue--it's serious and reason enough for me to return the product. Also, the cradle straps are extremely difficult to secure. I watched etrailer's product video and I can't figure out how the guy was able to secure the straps so easily---that's definitely not the case. Also, I wish it held the bikes 6" higher to get the handlebars above my truck's tailgate, which would also create more distance from the trailer and prevent the handlebars from rubbing the tailgate. Even with the longer hitch I purchased, it didn't give me enough distance between the truck/trailer for 3 bikes for tight turns. Two bikes would be okay, but even so, my bikes didn't sit well on this mount, even with additional adapters. The bikes slide down at weird angles which places the wheels in the way of the hitch mount. Overall, good in concept. Seemed secure and sturdy. But I couldn't use it for 3 bikes and would need adapters and better straps to make it work, and risk bad injury to my hand. Will be returning. I'd recommend finding it if you can find it a local store to test for yourself to avoid shipping costs.

Bike rack arrived in a timely manner and was securely packaged. The rack appears to be sturdily built. Rack requires a lot of downward force to attach it to the hitch bar. Someone taller and stronger might have better luck. Probably good because it attached very securely. The side straps for attachment to the trunk are a good stabilizing feature although their attachment to the rack was not well thought out. The rubber straps for attaching the bikes to the rack are very sturdy and stiff and again difficult to attach but were secure. Loaded 2 women's bikes with cross bar accessory and the rack bars were almost too wide for the accessory application. I removed the bike front wheels and turned the handlebars so they aligned with the bikes so the bikes could be placed closer together. Space for three regular or large frame bikes may be inadequate but ok for 2. The pin that secures the rack in the open position is spring loaded and there is an adjacent hole where an auxillary pin can be inserted for extra security. I will definitely get one and use it. Last but not least, make certain you release the spring loaded pin and lift up on the ring handle while standing to the side of the rack. The rack releases with the same force required to secure it. This rack allows me haul two bikes and a cargo carrier at the same time.

Rack fits tightly on hitch with more than enough strap length to reach the sides of the rear door on a 09 Yukon. The rubber cradles grip the bikes well. The unit doesn't move or shake. I will have to remove the front tires from the bikes to give enough clearance for the trailer to connect to the hitch but otherwise I believe it will work perfectly for a vacation trip towing the boat.

Good quality, need to be bit careful when opening. Did not work for us though - we bought to bring our bikes camping with us, but our pop up camper is too close to the car and would have smashed the bikes when making a turn. Would work much better for someone with a full size camper



- C18013
by:

A very nice product, but a couple of caveats: the shank of your hitch has to be long enough to clear 1.5 inches beyond the vehicle's bumper; and when pulling the handle to release the clamp, be careful! It takes a fair bit of pressure to squeeze the bar and set the clamp. The moment of release is dramatic. Make sure no part of your body is in the way. Otherwise, a useful and effective device.



- C18013

Super fast shipping, great price, and fits my truck perfectly! So far so good! Love the etrailer website! The product descriptions were on the money! The videos showing how to use products as well as performance tests were instrumental in me making the purchase. That took the guessing out of the game of online purchasing! I will purchase from them again no questions asked.



- C18013
by:

At the price point this is a very good buy. Certainly it is not as convenient or robust as a unit that would go into the receiver but it does leave your receiver open to use for other purposes which is a big plus. It would be a challenge to fit 3 bikes onto here but two work very nicely. it is a little bit of a challenge to get it off as it is a major pinch hazard but once you get used to it it's easy enough to avoid.

  • Bike Rack That Allows Trailer To Still Be Hooked Up
    I do have an option for you but the Curt Bike Rack for 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches part # C18029 does not allow for a trailer to be hooked up as well because the bike rack pins into the trailer hitch that would be needed to tow with. I recommend the Curt Clamp-On 3 Bike Rack for 2" Ball Mounts part # C18013 which fits around 2 inch ball mount and allows you to carry 3 bikes. You can then use the ball mount and ball to connect the trailer to. I have attached a video for your reference.

The only available replacement parts currently available for this rack are the Replacement Straps for Cradles on Curt Standard and Premium Bike Racks # C18007. For this reason you would need to replace the entire bike rack with a new one. If you're missing a different part and I'm misunderstanding what you're looking for, please let me know...

  • Compatibility of Bike Rack on a 2000 Trail Lite Bantam Camper without Mounting on Bumper
    You have a few options if your 2000 Trail Lite Bantam Camper cannot handle a bumper mounting bike rack. One option is to use a Ball-mount-mounted towing bike rack like the Curt Clamp-On 3 # C18013. This will allow you to carry up to 3 bikes using the ball mount you use to hook up your trailer to your vehicle. It does require a Class III hitch or greater and 3" of space along the ball mount's shank. I have linked the other bike racks that are similar in mounting style to this one for...

  • Can Curt Clamp-On Bike Rack be Used on an RV Towing a Vehicle
    Curt Clamp-On 3 Bike Rack # C18013 is not rated for use at the back of an RV so I do not recommend using it. If you have 3 inches or more free space on the shank you can use Swagman bike rack # S64664. I have included a link to a video review of this bike rack for you. The other option is to use a dual receiver such as # RM-077-2 and then use an RV-approved rack, see link.

  • Fit of Curt C18013 Clamp-On Bike Rack on 2014 Lexus GX460
    The Curt # C18013 Clamp-On bike rack can indeed be used when not towing a trailer. The rack has a 135 lb total capacity. In order to carry the bikes level and to provide maximum ground clearance, I'd highly recommend an adapter bar like part # 64005 be used. The bike rack doesn't have any built-in locking mechanism, but the clamp that locks the rack on to the ball mount can be locked using a coupler lock like part # e98886. The rack includes a cable that can secure the bikes to the rack...

  • How Far do Arms of Curt and Swagman Towing Bike Racks Extend?
    The Curt bike rack you referenced is for use with a 2" ball mount and not for a hitch extender; additionally, the hitch extender would reduce the tongue weight capacity of your hitch by 50 percent. Do you not have the required 1-1/2" of space on your ball mount's shank to use the Curt bike rack? If you let me know the issue and what you are trying to do I may be able to help you find a solution.

  • Longer Ball Mount Availability for Use with the Ball Mount Bike Racks
    We do carry longer ball mounts so that you can use the Ball Mount Bike Racks like the Curt Clamp-On 3 # C18013. For example the Ball Mount part # 80232 has a distance of 15-3/4 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the ball hole. If you need a ball mount with a drop of 2 inches this ball mount would work great for you. If you are unsure how much drop you need check out the help article I attached. I also attached a link to a page that has all of the longer ball mounts we...

  • Can the Thule Roadway # TH912XTR be Used on a 5th Wheel Trailer
    As much as I would love to help you find out a way to use the Thule Roadway # TH912XTR for your application, it has not been tested and approved for use at the rear of a 5th wheel trailer. Since the trailer hitch on a 5th wheel (or even a travel trailer) sits further back from the rear axle than it does on a vehicle, there is a lot more stress which some bike racks cannot handle. The Roadway is one of them. The best solution for your application is to go with the Curt Clamp-On 3 Bike...

  • Recommendation for a Bike Rack for Use When Towing a Trailer with a 1996 Jeep Cherokee
    There are a couple of options for you to carry a bike a rack and tow a trailer at the same time. First, you can use a towing rack. I recommend the Curt Clamp-on, part # C18013. It fits around a ball mount shank. A couple of things to note about this method are the ball mount length and the tongue weight. This bike rack requires that the ball mount have a distance of 10 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the center of the ball hole. If you need a ball mount that is compatible,...
