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

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

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

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

Comments

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

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

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

We love this bike rack! It was easy to put together and very easy to use! We really like the option to carry 2 bikes or 4. We would highly recommend this product! 99070

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

Comments

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

Customer Service was great prior to ordering. They helped answer all my many questions and determine which rack was the right rack for my needs. Ordering was easy and shipping was prompt! It arrived last night. I have assembled the rack which was easy. I have test fit the bikes, but I need to adjust a little before taking out for test drive. Very happy so far! 233449

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

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

The bike racks have been great! We have used them in every configuration possible. The racks are solid. We have a small car which has a 1 1/4" hitch on it and an SUV with a 2" hitch so we have carried 2 bikes on each vehicle or all 4 on the SUV. It is easy to setup and get the bikes on. Very glad we purchased it. 326013

Love the rack. I have done business with etrailer a few times and always the BEST customer service possible. The rack itself is simple and easy to put together. Will fit my needs perfectly as normally we travel with 2 bikes, but wanted option to take more when needed. Thanks etrailer. 259749

Great flexibility for the use of this bike rack. I can use the two inch hitch on my rv for two or four bikes, or use the smaller attachment on my car for two bikes, or with an adapter use all four on my smaller hitch on the car. Two bike racks for the price of one. Easy to assemble. 259175

Heavy duty construction well worth the money. A little on the heavy side for ease of handling but better than flimsy. I thought the straps to hold the tires in place could have been a better quality to match the rest of the unit. Very pleased. 190460

Initially the bike rack was easy to put together. Setting up each bike on the rack took some time but was easy to do. Storing the rack is pretty compact. I can set it in front of my car i the garage an still have room to get around it. 192195

This product allowed me to carry four bikes pretty easily. The downside us that the foam on the tube that hooks down on the bikes slides off and the bikes get marred pretty badly. The initial concept is good, the final design is poor. 389063

Review from a similar Pro Series Q-Slot in Hitch Bike Racks


I never put anything excellent, so good is good. First I will say it was easy to put together 5 minutes maybe. Took longer to get out of box than put together. A 5 year old can do that part. Set up for the bikes was easy. About a minute or so fer each bike. Reason I bought this was because my wife's bike is a step-through and requires a bike beam which I do not like to use. They do fail on rough roads. This should do fine. Looks like the steel is heavy enough and the welds look good. I will still use a bungee strap to secure the bikes. Just don't trust everything. 2 Items I do not like. First is the plastic 1 1/4 to 2 adapter. I believe it will work fine but is it fails I can always buy a metal one for $10. The second is the pin used to secure to the hitch is not the same diameter all the way through. But then this is used to keep vibrations and noise down. Will see how it works over time on rough roads I guess. But over all looks good. 128629

Review from a similar Pro Series Q-Slot in Hitch Bike Racks


The bike rack fits great. We had to wait a while for a company to make a reese hitch for the 2013 Hyundai Veloster. The bikes ride great just a little wobble. We had a little concern with the heat from the exhaust exiting in the middle of the rack. There is no problem with the heat. We are still able to handle the rack after transporting the bikes at any distance. There was no heat transferred to the bikes at while moving. We still would watch the heat to the bikes if we were caught in a traffic jam for any length of time. 94983

Review from a similar Pro Series Q-Slot in Hitch Bike Racks


This rack will be used to transport a road bike with a flat top tube and a mountain bike with sloped top tube. When first assembled, the pivots give the impression of being very loose and wobbly. After loading a bike onto the rack and securing it per the instructions, everything becomes very solid and stable. There is very little movement of the rack when driving over broken pavement and uneven roads. The bike is very secure. The wheel hoops are substantial, the straps are robust. The product works well. 221995

I still use the bike rack. It works well and after finally figuring out balance points for the different bikes, im more than satisified with it.

Review from a similar Pro Series Q-Slot in Hitch Bike Racks


This product is a total waste of money. I used it once and the plastic knobs used to tighten the bikes in place are very shoddy. They broke in my hands when I tried to tighten them. They must be very tight or else the bars that go over the bike frame will pop up and your bike will spill onto the road. After it broke, the bolts were exposed and I could not find a wrench that was skinny enough to loosen it up. I ended up using a vice grip. I had bought extra knobs at a local harward store and they too broke. This product just requires too much strength to tighten everything and be secure. I do not recommend this product to anyone, ever. I am very disappointed as etrailer said I could not return the product of a full refund because I bought it back in June (I first used the rack on October 1) even though I only used it one. So now I am stuck with this rack and have to carry a wrench with me everytime I use it. It also takes a considerable amount of time to use the wrench to loosen and tighten everything. I have to stop driving everynow and then and check the rack and retightening everything. What a pain to deal with. 25234

Review from a similar Pro Series Q-Slot in Hitch Bike Racks


This rack is so close to good but has some seriously fatal flaws- as mentioned by others, it is impossible to hand tighten the hooks that keep the bikes attached to the rack. I bought a rachet to be able to safely keep my bike on the rack. The fifth time I used the rack the carriage bolt turned in the holder and striped out the holder rendering it worthless. I replaced it with a standard bolt and now have to carry two wrenches to keep my bikes on the rack. The bikes WILL fall off if you don't use a tool to tighten the hooks. At this point i have completely removed all the hardware that came with the rack hooks and replaced it with my own bolt and a series of washers. It does work, but if you're not a diy-er don't even think about buying this rack. The plastic wheels that keep the wheel holders to the rack are also a major pain to tighten. You won't have to do this every time, but when i have to make adjustments there is always cursing involved. Take my advice- spend a few more bucks and get a better quality rack. I've already spent the difference on tools and hardware, and the rack is still a pain to use. 45067

Review from a similar Pro Series Q-Slot in Hitch Bike Racks


This rack was assembled very quickly and easily (about 15 min, but expect to use your own tools, the ones they included were useless). It fit very snugly in my 1/4 hitch. I have two minor complaints, those being: the vertical post has too much movement, even with the linchpin inserted; the second is that I wish the arms that hold the top rail of the bike down, were curved more. I think they would be more secure if the were a true "J" shape. Great value for the price. I'm very pleased with this rack. 269885

Review from a similar Pro Series Q-Slot in Hitch Bike Racks


I chose this particular rack because Im cheap. I admit it, I also admit that I do not buy anything without reading reviews first. The reviews for this rack were great so I figured I would give it a shot. etrailer.com were awesome, I purchased a hitch a couple weeks before and they noticed that so they shipped the bike rack the same day as a thank you for being a returning customer. Thank you. Now for the rack. This rack is nice and solid. I expected the wheel chocks to be cheap metal anywhere from 1/4 to 3/8th stock but they ended up being 1/2 which is super nice. For the price and type of rack, this thing is nice. I almost regret not going for the 4 bike setup. If youre like me where reviews and price matter I would 100% suggest this rack to you. I also bought a hitch lock to bring my total up to the $150 free shipping threshold. My only suggestion would be to ship at a reduced rate rather than getting it out a day sooner for return customers. I would rather save a few bucks than receiving it here a day sooner. 53686

Review from a similar Pro Series Q-Slot in Hitch Bike Racks


So far, so good. I've driven with this holding 27.5 and 24 inch mountain bikes for about 20 miles. The rack was simple to assemble and once I got the trailer hitch installed, it was a piece of cake to put on the car (2014 Fiesta Hatchback). The hatch can be opened without having to move the vertical bar as long as there are no bikes on it. The only issue I have so far are the straps that go over the wheels, they're velcro. I would have preferred the rubber ones but we'll see how these hold up. 222608

  • Pro Series Q-Slot Platform Bike Rack part # PS63138 vs. Sportrack 4 Bike Carrier # SR2902
  • Although they look similar the Pro Series Q-Slot Platform Bike Rack part # PS63138 and the Sportrack 4 Bike Carrier # SR2902 are different racks made by different companies. Between the two I like the Pro Series bike rack since it can carry 4 bikes, but if you only needed to carry 2 you could remove the back section of the rack and be left with just a 2 bike rack. Which this removeable section can also be used as it's own standalone rack for a 1-1/4 inch hitch. So basically you are getting...
