3-In-1 Bike Rack

The Pro Series Q-Slot is a triple threat when it comes to carrying your bikes. This platform-style, hitch-mounted rack is 3 bike racks in 1 tidy package. The base rack can be used as a 2-bike carrier for 2" hitches or - with the included add-on installed - as a 4-bike carrier for 2" hitches. The add-on can also be used as a stand-alone 2-bike rack for 1-1/4" hitches, making this rack perfect for people with 2 cars that have different hitch sizes.


Multiple Configurations

You can use either of the 2-bike carriers the old-fashioned way - just slide it into your 1-1/4" or 2" hitch and secure it with the appropriate anti-rattle hitch pin. For full 4-bike carrying capacity, slide the shank of the 1-1/4" rack into the front of the 2" rack and secure it with the 1/2" pin.


Easy Bike Loading

The Q-Slot is super easy to load, even when used in the 4-bike configuration. The rack has 2 upright masts with frame hooks that adjust independently of one another to hold 4 bikes of different - or identical - styles and sizes, and they eliminate bike-to-bike contact during travel. The upright masts can be folded down by releasing bail pins at the bases, allowing you to load bikes onto the rack without interference. Folding the masts down also provides easier access to your vehicle's rear cargo area.


Cushioned Frame Hooks

Once your bikes are in place on the rack, simply slide the cushioned hooks down snugly over the bike frames and tighten the hand knobs. These hooks are staggered and operate independently of each other so that you can carry bikes of different sizes, and they are padded so that they won't scratch or scuff the paint finish on your bikes.


Adjustable Wheel Hoops

The versatile rack has adjustable wheel hoops that enable you to carry bikes of different lengths as well. These wheel hoops adjust with hand knobs and slide along the bike rack frame to accommodate your specific bike lengths. The hoops include straps with hook-and-loop closures (similar to Velcro) to secure your bike wheels in place.


Excellent Ground Clearance

The rack features a unique dual rise shank (the base rack and add-on rack both have a rise) for ultimate ground clearance. These rise shanks provide great clearance when the racks are used independently and superior clearance when the racks are used together in the 4-bike configuration.


Convenient Storage

The horizontal bars can be folded up for storage when the bike rack is not in use. Simply pull the bail pins at the base, fold the arms up, and re-insert the pins.

Video Transcript for Pro Series Q-Slot 2 and 4 Bike Hitch Bike Rack Review

Today, we'll be reviewing the Pro Series Q-Slot Platform bike rack, part #PS63138. This is a hitch-mounted bike rack that can carry 2-4 bikes with 2 inch hitches when needed with an add-on rack. The add-on rack can be used separately for 1 inch and 1/4 inch hitches. The Q-slot has cushioned hooks that slide up and down independently on the masts. This helps hold bikes of different shapes and sizes in place. There's also some padding on the hooks which protects the bike's frame from scratches. There's wheel-mounts with straps that slide back and forth, which will adjust for varying bike lengths and secure the wheels in place. The masts pull down for bike loading or to access your rear cargo area. The wheel-mount arm folds up, as well, for storage after a trip. The shank of this bike rack has a dual rise, which provides more ground clearance and has an anti-rattle bolt. It has rear reflectors, which help with making the q-slot more visible at night, and it has a black powder-coat finish to make it rust resistant. Now that we've gone over some features of the q-slot, let's show you how it's installed. We'll start in its 4-bike configuration, and slide the rack into the hitch of our vehicle. Remember, the 4-bike configuration is only for 2 inch hitches. We'll line up our pin holes, then we'll install our anti-rattle bolt with the washer. Now, we'll take the provided wrench and tighten it down and place the clip on the other side. With that done, we'll pull these pins here, which will release the wheel-mount arms down. We'll repeat this for all arms. Next, we'll show you how to pull down the masts of the q-slot.

We'll remove this pin at the base and gently let them tip away from the vehicle. As you can see, we now have full access to the cargo area. As mentioned earlier, the q-slot has cushioned hooks, which hold down your bikes. To adjust them, we'll loosen these knobs, which will allow the hooks to move freely. The wheel mounts also have these knobs that, when loosened, will allow them to adjust. The wheel mounts also have this hook and loop strap which wraps around the wheel and keeps it in place during travel. With all of our arms folded out, we're ready to place our bikes on them. We'll place our first bike on the q-slot, first adjusting the wheel mounts into position. Next, we'll place our hooks into position on the frame. Now, we'll move back down to the wheel, take our hook and loop straps and secure the wheels. We'll repeat this process with the rest of our bikes. Now, we'll show you how to make our 4 bike rack into the two separate bike racks.

We'll loosen up the anti-rattle bolt and pull the inch and 1/4 shank out, and place that into our other vehicle's hitch. Next we'll repeat the installation steps to load a bike on it. That will do it for the review of the Pro-Series bike rack, part #PS63138. .

I've only used this bike rack a couple of times, but so far, I really like it. I love that you get two independent 2-bike racks that can also be put together to form one 4-bike rack. This rack holds the bikes securely. Once the platforms are set for the particular bike, putting the bikes on and lowering the arm to the frame can be done very quickly. When driving down the road, even on rough mountainous terrain, the bikes are held securely. Very little play despite the design allowing for the platforms to be folded. Things of note. This hangs out there very far when using it as a 4-bike rack. Care must be taken when selecting a parking space since it can't be folded up. (Some racks do fold up, but I knew this one didn't when I bought it. It is cheaper than the models that do and it is modular...) When using as a 4-bike model, it is quite heavy. No more than other models, just may be difficult for a smaller person to remove. No trouble for me, but my wife would have a tough time. I had no trouble with the foam pads on the arm coming off or splitting, but haven't used much yet. (I did add a dab of glue on each one to help secure them...) My bike has the cables for the brakes and gears on the top of my top tube and when the arm is lowered on it, it did cause the cable to rub some of the paint on the tube. Didn't think about that when I used it. I may put a little tape on the top tube where the arm lowers to prevent this in the future. My wife's bike has the cables below the top tube so it works great for hers. My bike is a mountain bike and gets beat up pretty regularly so its not a huge deal to me. Also, it's aluminum so no risk of rust or anything... Overall good rack and I think a great value. Much better than trying to squeeze all of our bikes on a hanging rack that we used before. Especially with such odd top tube angles on our bikes... 362133

Girlfriend and I were using a trunk mounted bike rack. Went to Zion with it and it scratched up paint and dented my lift gate because we had to tighten it down so much. So we got smart and decided to buy a hitch mounted bike rack. Girlfriends car has a 1 1/4" class 1 hitch my SUV has a 2" class 3 hitch. We both like to ride together but life gets in the way and we do ride by ourselves sometimes, this rack fits that need perfectly. Product is very unique as it is 2 carriers in one. To put it together took 15 minutes and was a piece of cake(picture 1). Parts are solid but they have some looseness(that looseness is needed for the rack to work properly) and rack will have some movement as you drive. Rack holds bikes solidly but you do need to press down hard on the lock arm(make sure the foam is between the lock arm and the bike) and use the wheel straps. I didn't push it down it well and watched my bike wobble around a bit. For Women's bikes you may want to use a straight cross tube for holding bike in position. Once I learned to do the above steps bikes are very secure on rack been off road(Nothing too crazy) with it and had no concerns. The thumb screws that hold the lock arms are nice and big and easy to turn. USE the hitch lock Softride 25056 Access Hitch Lock, works like a charm and with NO wobble. You will need a separate wrench to tighten/loosen the Softride hitch lock. There is plenty of room between car and handlebars as you can see in picture 3. The only negative of this rack is the small(2 quarter size) reflectors on it for night visibility. If you have the 4 bike setup it will stick out quite a bit from your vehicle. I put some 1" white reflective tape on the lock arm and the tire holders to increase after dark visibility.(Picture 4) . All in all this is a great rack and I would buy it again. 231827

We were looking for a 2"-hitch bike rack that would allow us to carry at least a road bike and and a recently bought electric bike (e-bike). The heavier (approx. 45 lb) of the e-bike made it important for us to find a rack that was relatively simple to install, capable of supporting over 65 lb in a platform style. The PS Q-slot platform-style 2- and 4-bike rack fit all our requirements and more. The rack arrived with the add-on piece (the extension that allows carrying two additional bikes for a total of 4 bikes already assembled. Putting together the 2"-hitch rack was relatively simple, but not 20 min as stated in the box. That would be the time you need to check that all the parts are included, especially when the box shows damage signs. We tested the rack with 3 bikes on. One was the e-bike (45 lb loaded first) and the other two standard road bikes (about 20-25 lb each). Mounting the bikes on the rack was a breeze. The adjustable padded hooks worked great securing all 3 bikes. We would recommend however using small/medium size bungee cord to keep the tires from moving, as the Velcro straps don't look very strong. The rack worked great. Nothing moved, no rattling even when going 65 mph. The instruction guide to assemble the rack could be improved, if there was a clear statement indicating that the add-on extension rack was already assembled. That would make it easier to assemble the main rack by comparing it to the add-on; it would also avoid looking for parts that are already on the assembled unit. Thus far we are very happy with the rack 411245

Assembling the bike rack was not as straight forward as one would think. Some of the pieces were not fitted right out of the factory; some of the wheel cradle assemblies and the frame hook assemblies would not slide over the tubes. I had to bend the metal a few times and then they worked fine (I removed the rubber padding and placed a piece of wood inside the assembly and gently bent it). Also, the shipping box was completely open on one side when UPS delivered it. It is a very heavy box and it should have been shipped with plastic tie wraps or similar. Luckily nothing was missing. I have only used this rack once, to load 4 bikes (adults and kids) and go for a test drive. My first impression is that the bike rack is very sturdy and the bikes hardly move. To reduce movement, I also put a tie-down strap around the cross bars of the bikes. When loading 4 bikes for the first time, it takes some time to figure out the best configuration, especially if the bikes have different heights and different shaped cross bars. 342084

After scouring the web for the right product for our family, I came upon the 2+2 and it seemed perfect; 2 adult riders and 2 very small children who are still in a trailer but will soon need their own bikes carried around. The rack is heavy, feels well built and despite some of the reviews I read, the handles don't feel cheap/likely to break. Assembly took about 20 minutes with a 3 year-olds help. We took the rack out for a test as a 2 bike rack: 45 minute drive, unload at the park, ride around a bit, reload and 45 minutes home. None of the handles backed off, bikes were as we secured them when we got home. There was no noise associated with the rack, overall i'm very pleased so far. The only complaint i have is the lack of a lock on the hitch. I used a cable-lock through one of the holes in the rack, but you can only get a small diameter cable through there. 178880

This is a great bike rack system. You actually are getting 2 2-bike racks, one that fits a 1 1/4' hitch and one that fits a 2'. The 1 1/4 fits onto the 2" rack to make a 4 bike rack. I have a car that requires a 1 1/4" rack and my wife has a car with a 2" so this is the perfect set up! It really secures the bikes in place and doesn't scratch up the frame the way some other bick racks do. Haven't had any issues at all with this rack. The only thing that took some getting used to is when the bikes are secured in the rack the whole rack has some play and will move side to side. It looks a bit unsecure but believe me it is quite a solid and secure system. I've used it for long trips and use it routinely during the week. Highly recommend it especially at this price point. You won't find anything better at this price!! 295376

1 year of regular use as 2, 2 bike carriers and occasional use as a combined 4 bike carrier and this thing is still awesome! So glad I chose this over the much more expensive options. Still a solid 5 stars. Had to replace a couple of the Velcro straps other than that perfect!!

Great value! This is the cheapest option for a 4-bike tray type carrier. Also, I like that it is actually three carriers - a 1.25" 2-bike carrier for my car, a 2" 2-bike carrier for my SUV, and a 2" 4-bike carrier for my SUV. I knocked off a star for three reasons: - The first item I received was defective(etrailer shipped me a new part). Quality control is lacking, but what do you expect at this price point. - The velcro straps are not durable at all. One broke after about a dozen uses. - It doesn't fold up out of the way when not in use. Again, at this price point you make some sacrifices. Overall, very pleased with the purchase considering that alternatives are 2 to 3 times the cost of this rack. 408849

This is our second platform style bike rack. The style is so easy to hook onto the car and load the bikes. This hitch has performed well. Our last one was not anti-sway and the swaying was much more annoying than I had anticipated. This one does not sway much. The ground clearance is great. It does not rattle. The hooks are easy to get on and off and they have never unexpectedly come loose (unlike with our last one). The padding on the hooks appeared not very tough but after a year, no problems. It folds fairly compact. The only thing better would be if it folded flat. This is a great bike rack for the price and etrailer has been good to deal with. We have no regrets about his purchase. 436625

I've only used this rack one time, to take our bikes to the beach for our vacation. It was a 3 hours trip to the beach. Halfway on our route during a gas stop, I discovered one of the rubber tubes on the hooks was missing, and the other 3 were split open where they were on contact with the bikes. All of the bikes had paint damage because of this. none of the tubes are glues on. I also have a Sportrack bike carrier and the foam on that one lasted for a while before the foam started splitting on it, and they are glued on so they won't slide off. I would not recommend this Pro-Series hitch. If you do buy it, glue the foam on and wrap the foam on the hooks with bike handlebar tape or something. 275821

Fast shipping, easy to install, holds either 2 or 4 bikes and is very stable. I would recommend this product. 219688

Overall very nice bike rack. Easy to assemble. Solid construction. Seems like it will hold up well over the long haul. Really like the 2 bike rack in one construction. If I want to go out by myself I don't have to tow a big empty rack. The 2" and 1 1/4" hitch sizes work pefectly with my two vehicles. The only reason I gave it four stars (would have given 4 1/2 if it was an option) is because of the velcro straps. Very thin and cheap. Highly doubt they would keep the bike on the rack if the bikes were to ever come loose. I would also recommend getting some pipe insulators as the rubber on the hold down bars is a little thin as well. Best bike rack out there for the money! 439459

I recently purchased the platform bike rack PS63138. It was easy to put together and is easy to use. I like the versatility of using it as a 2-bike or 4-bike rack or 2 2- bike racks. My bike is easy to load, and is secure when traveling to my destination. When using the bolt that came with it, it travels well. I bought a locking bolt and that makes it a little shakier but still works fine. Only problem: I will need to put some cushioning on my bike where the top bar meets the bike because the foam got rubbed and has a small hole in it now. I already recommended this rack to a friend. The videos on the website are helpful and helped me decide to purchase this model. 422919

I have ben looking for a good bike rack that would fit 4 beach cruisers. Man I found it. This is a nice big platform bike carrier and fits 4 beach cruisers without beating them up. It assembles easy, folds up nice, is easy to store and you can't beat the price or phenomenal service that that etrailer provides. I would recommend this product to anyone asking. 182269

Does it seem as if the handles of the beach cruiser since so big and bulky impair the bikes properly fitting in the rack? We have 4 beach cruisers also and they were getting so mangles on our prior bike rack. Thanks

George. I bought this for my wife who loves to bike in the summer with friends. She had one with high bars and struggled to lift and secure the bikes. Her friend had one like yours, only it was a one-piece 4 bike carrier. She like the idea of the wheel saddle style and when I found that yours was in two sections I knew she could handle it, which she can. She now likes to put the two sections together - herself - and take three friends out to the various trails and sections around Western Pennsylvania. Sorry I can’t attach a photo, but this 70 year old guy is just catching on to computers and geared bikes. ;-) 453346

Easy to assemble - apart from you need a long reach socket which is not included so needed a quick trip to Home Depot. Would be good to include a tool to allow complete assembly with the package. Once together easy to fit to the car and adjusted completely for 4 bikes in 10 minutes. All fittings seem strong and well put together. Yet to drive the car with the 4 bikes mounted which will be the interesting part. No lock included but bought a 30ft cable and lock so can thread through all parts of the bikes and lock onto my tow hitch for security. So far, think it's a great product for the money. 144038

Even though this bike rack just arrived yesterday, I know it was an excellent choice. I bought this rack for a friend who already owned one because I borrowed it and ended up in a collision, wrecking his rack! We've used it on three occasions, including a two hour drive away, and find it an ideal way to transport 4 bikes safely. If you've ever used a hanging type bike rack, there is no comparison. The platform rack allows the bikes to ride without movement--no swinging and swaying resulting in paint chipping and bent fenders and chain guards. Security of your bikes is guaranteed! 313348

I've been very satisfied with this product. It's well built and easy to set up. The bikes are held secureally in place but it's very quick and easy to get them on or off the rack. My only gripe is the threaded bolt needed to hold the rack in the receiver hitch. I need to take the time to find a locking hitch pin that will prevent the rack from being stolen while I am away from the vehicle. Otherwise, top notch. The rack gives me the option to haul up to four bikes that are cradled and clamped down, not suspended and swinging around or banging into each other. 437469

They seem to hold up pretty good and stay pretty tight on the back of the trailer the only problem that I have so far is that the foam rubber on the hooks wiggle their way off as you're going down the road fall off and then the metal uncovered hooks Rub in to the bike and take the paint off I bought some plumbing pipe insulation and you some tiedown zip ties hopefully that will hold up my bikes are still messed up for metal to metal rubbing this seems to be only problem I have with the product itself for that it seems to be OK 323058

Installed and used 1 year not very often. Fits perfect as designed and instructed. I use to add a couple of extra straps just to be sure the bikes don't hit the car or each other. Very easy to set up 1-2-3-4 bikes, whatever their size or shape. With just 1 part (2 bikes) is much comfortable on the ride, with full equipment is getting a bit shaky, but everything stays in place. Nice looking gear! eTrailer service excellent, just Purolator keeps missing my work address and have to recall them every time. 252307

by: Jeff M08/30/2017


The product works great as expected. However, it should be noted that because the product uses its own tapped 5/8 anti vibration bolt, regular hitch receiver locks like the bulldog 2 inch receiver lock do NOT fit this product. Do NOT expect to buy a 2 inch receiver lock with a pin diameter of 5/8" and have it work. It does NOT fit. But that has nothing to do with the product. Its related to this product working with other etrailer products. 426721

Is there anyway you can lock the rack to the 2 receiver instead of using just the provided cotter pin?

-- comment by: Armando - 01/12/2014

I called up my contact at ProSeries and he confirmed they do not offer a locking version of the anti-rattle bolt or have a way to lock it. It is possible that there are padlocks out there with a small enough shackle to fit in the cotter pin hole, but we do not have any that small.

-- Patrick B - 1/23/2014

Oh wow. Excellent question Armando. So it would be pretty easy for someone to just remove the cotter pin and walk away with the rack?

-- comment by: John - 04/07/2014

The potential thieft would need a wrench as well. A threaded bolt is used to snug the rack in the hitch and the cotter pin is used make sure the bolt could not back all the way out. ProSeries does not have a locking option for this rack. For a similar rack that will lock, check part # HR1400

This is the second time I have ordered this bike rack. Not only is it a great rack for carrying all of our bikes but my fiancée and I were in a rear end collision and the insurance adjuster said ""if this rack was not on your car the damage would have been much worse". So we plan on keeping it on the car all the time. Thanks e-trailer for such a great product. 172472

Came well boxed and rather heavy. Took about 1/2 hour to put it together. Used it yesterday and couldn't be happier. Two hitches for the price of one! For what it's worth, the Softride 25056 hitch lock is supposed to fit this rack according to e-trailer. You might want to order one at the time you order the rack to save some shipping charges. 198679

The product was as described, assembly was easy. It works with both women's and men's bikes. Small child's bike will fit, but requires a strap to hold it in place. It took a few minutes to figure out how to arrange two women's, a child's and men's bike. We plan to use this on a Class C RV, View and on a SUV next week when we go camping. 410474

Easy to assembly. Held together nicely on a 635 mile trip. No marks were made on the bikes from the hold downs. There was only one problem, the hold downs would not slide down low enough to stabilize a Townie bike (the hold down bottom outs on the center tube). To rectify the problem, I wrapped a rag around the arm of the hold down bar. 251278

Disappointed with velcro strapping breaking 4 of the 8 and the tearing of the foam on the hold down bars.

The reason is that this rack is designed for flexibility; it will fit in both smaller lighter-duty 1-1/4-inch hitches as well as higher-capacity 2-inch hitches. This means that the smaller 1-1/4-inch shank would not have the strength needed to handle the weight of 4 bikes. You will notice that all 4-bike platform carriers we offer, shown on the linked page, are made...

  • 2 Bike, Platform Bike Recommendation with Threaded Locking Hitch Pin
  • The diameter of the hitch pin included with the Pro Series Q-Slot Platform Bike Rack # PS63138 is 5/8 of an inch. However, this rack has a threaded hitch pin so an unthreaded locking hitch pin would not work. I think your best option would be to get a Hollywood Racks Sport Rider part # HR1400, this is a very similar rack that comes with an anti-rattle bolt that locks. Check out the review video I attached for this rack for you to check out also.

  • Will the Pro Series Q-Slot Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack Clear the Spare Tire on a 2008 Toyota RAV4
  • The Pro Series Q-Slot just might be a fit for your 2008 Toyota RAV4. You will need to take an important measurement first. You will also need to have a 2 inch trailer hitch for the rack to fit. Measure from the center of the 2 inch trailer hitch pin hole straight back to the distance required to clear the rear of the vehicle. If that measurement is less than 12 inches then the rack will fit. I have included a link to our help article that shows how to take the measurement. I have...

  • Availability of Platform Style 2 Bike Rack That Can Be Converted to a 4-Bike Rack
  • For a bike rack that's easily convertible between a 2 and a 3 bike rack I recommend the # HR1400 from Hollywood Racks. The rack includes a hitch lock and a cable lock to secure the rack to the vehicle and the bikes to the bike rack. If you click the provided link you can see a product demonstration video featuring the Hollywood Racks # HR1400. Pro Series offers the Q-Slot, part # PS63138, that's also convertible between a 2 and a 4 bike rack. The Q-Slot is at a less expensive price...

  • How to Mount a Girls Bike on a 2-Arm Trailer hitch Mounted Bike Rack
  • If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar that goes straight across (like a typical men's bike would) then I recommend using bike adapter bar # 64005. This will allow you to carry those bikes more level and will provide better ground clearance. I have to use these adapters and without them my wife's bike would be at a severe angle and I would not be able to load my son's bike at all. I have linked a video showing how the adapter works. Another option is to use...

  • 4 Bike Rack that Can Be Used in 2 inch Hitch and Used for 2 Bikes In 1-1/4 inch Hitch
  • The Pro Series Q-Slot part # PS63138 would be the best rack option we have as it is the only one that can be used as a 4 bike rack in a 2 inch hitch or a 2 bike rack in a 1-1/4 inch hitch. To lock the rack and your bikes to the hitch of your vehicles you would need to use the cable lock part # CAB-10. You will need to route the cable through the bike frames and the rack and then secure it back to the safety chain loops of your hitch.

  • Hitch Lock Recommendation for a Pro Series Q-Slot Platform Bike Rack
  • For the Pro Series Q-Slot Platform-Style 2 Bike and 4 Bike Rack # PS63138 that you referenced we have found that the Softride hitch lock part # SR25056 works great as a hitch lock. We have had a few customers come back and try this hitch lock with the rack and they stated that it worked great. The threaded portion of the lock is a little over an inch long. It's hard to say if this would fit through a 2-1/2 inch to 2 inch thick adapter as it hasn't been tested.

  • Recommended Platform Hitch Bike Rack with Locking Option
  • Sorry to hear your vehicle was rear ended! The platform hitch mount 4-bike rack I recommend, that has a locking option, is the Swagman XTC4 4-bike rack # S64665 because it includes an anti-rattle hitch lock to secure the rack to your receiver hitch, and a steel cable lock to secure your bikes to the rack. The weight capacity is 35 pounds per bike. The Pro-Series Q-Slot platform style 2 and 4 bike rack # PS63138 you referenced is a very nice bike rack, but there is no locking hitch...

  • Availability of Hitch-Mount Multi-Bike Rack That Does Not Make Contact with Bike Frame
  • Your 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan with Stow-N-Go seats can be equipped with either a 1-1/4-inch Class II hitch or a 2-inch Class III hitch. All 2-inch hitch-mount bike carriers, including the Pro Series Q-Slot Platform-Style rack # PS63138 that you referenced, fall into one of two general types, either hanging style or platform style, and to some degree both types will make frame contact. Hanging style racks suspend the bike from one or two arms on which the main top frame tube rests. Platform...

  • Recommended Platform-Style 4-Bike Hitch Rack for 2010 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring
  • Your 2010 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring AWD can be fitted with two different classes of hitch, either a 1-1/4-inch Class II from Curt, part # C12112, or a 2-inch Class III from any of several makers. All can be seen by clicking on the link provided for you. A 4-bike platform rack can be used only on a 2-inch hitch like Curt # 13575. When we installed this hitch on your car we found that the hitch pin hole was 4-3/4-inches from the back edge of the bumper. Please see the linked video. This...

  • Do the Vertical Arms on the Pro Series Q-Slot Bike Carrier Fold Down
  • The Pro Series Q-Slot bike carrier # PS63138 upright arms can fold down. I have included a picture showing how they fold down. In the picture the forward mast could go down a little further if the hooks were adjusted.

  • Recommended Tilting 4-Bike Platform Bike Rack with Locks on a 2004 Toyota RAV4 with Rear Spare Tire
  • The Pro Series Q-Slot Bike Rack # PS63138 will not allow your daughter to open the rear hatch of her vehicle with bikes loaded. This bike rack does not tilt away. She will be able to open the hatch when no bikes are on the rack and the upright masts are folded down but not with bikes on it. Another option that does tilt is the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE # HR1400. It will also carry 2 or 4 bikes and it includes locks for both the hitch and bikes. We haven't fit it on a RAV4 like...
