RockyMounts SplitRail Hitch Mount In Use

The RockyMounts SplitRail platform-style bike rack lets you carry 4 bikes using your vehicle's 2" hitch. It is designed to carry bicycles of varying sizes and styles. The bike trays adjust to optimize bike spacing and reduce bike-to-bike contact. The ratcheting arms and wheel straps secure your bikes by the wheels so there's no frame contact. The front-mounted release lever allows the rack to easily tilt down with bikes loaded for easy access to your vehicle's rear cargo area and fold up when not in use. Finally, the rack includes integrated cable locks to secure your bikes to the rack and a locking hitch pin for securing the rack to your vehicle.


Wheel-Mount Design for Easy Bike Loading

RockyMounts Split Rail Adjustable Wheel Holder

The Rack allows you to quickly and easily load and carry 4 bicycles on the back of your vehicle. The ratcheting arms securely hold your bikes by the front wheels so there's no frame contact. Simply push the button on the hook and slide it firmly into place over your front wheel.


Sliding Rear-Wheel Straps

RockyMounts Split Rail Ratcheting Straps

The sliding rear-wheel straps allow the rack to accommodate bikes with wheelbases up to 48" long. The ratcheting, rubber straps hold your bikes' rear wheels securely in place on the tray and fit tires up to 3" wide.


Adjustable Bike Tray

RockyMounts SplitRail Rack Adjustable Bike Tray

The front and back trays adjust 4" side-to-side to ensure you have enough space when loading your bikes. Just remove the 4 bolts where the tray attaches to the top of the rack, slide the trays left or right to achieve the desired spacing, and then re-install the bolts. This will prevent your bikes' handlebars from becoming tangled, and it eliminates the fear of bike-to-bike contact during transportation.


Front-Mounted Release Lever for Easy Tilting

RockyMounts SplitRail Bike Rack Adjustable Handle for Tilt Fold Action

The front-mounted release lever allows one person to easily tilt the RockyMounts SplitRail. The rack tilts down with or without bikes loaded for convenient access to your vehicle's rear cargo area.


RockyMounts Split Rail Bike Rack Folded Up

The lever also lets you fold the rack up for storage when you're not transporting a bike. This is great for parking in places where space is limited such as a parking garage


Easy Installation with Anti-Rattle Device

RockyMounts Split Rail Hitch Mount Close Up

The RockyMounts SplitRail installs quickly and easily into your 2" hitch receiver. Adjust the anti-wobble wedge with the included hex wrench and slide it onto the shank. Once in place, insert the shank into your vehicle's hitch receiver and install the locking hitch pin. Tighten the anti-wobble wedge in the receiver for a secure hold.


RockyMounts Split Rail Adjustable Knob Tightener

Make final adjustments by turning the knob underneath the rack to make sure the rack is firmly held in place. This will reduce noise and movement while the rack is in use.


Security Features

RockyMounts SplitRail Bike Rack Built-In Cable Locks

The rack comes with integrated cable locks to secure your bikes against theft. The cables extended from the ends of the wheel hooks and wrap around your bikes' frames to lock them to the rack


RockyMounts Split Rail Hitch Mount Locking Pin

The hitch pin also comes with a hitch lock to help prevent the rack from being removed from your vehicle.


Convenient Wall Mount Storage Hook

RockyMounts SplitRail Bike Rack Wall Mount Storage Hook Supporting Rack

An included mounting hook bolts to a secure attachment point so you can hang the rack when not in use. Simply remove the rack from your vehicle, reinstall the hitch pin and then set the shank in the middle of the bracket, inserting the hitch pin into the bracket's cradles.


RockyMounts SplitRail Bike Rack Wall Mount Storage Hook

When mounting the storage hook use a pair of 5/16" x 3" lag bolts (sold separately). Select a sturdy location, such as a wall stud, and make sure the location is at least 60" off the ground so the rack can hang unobstructed.

So far it seems good and easy to use. One issue we’ve had is that the threads on many of the bolt holes seem to be not quite right. Some bolts need an enourmous amount of torque to tighten. One bolt hole on the extension piece now spins and I cant tighten the bolt. I’ll be reaching out to Rocky Mounts to see if they can resolve the issue. In pictures below, the bottom left bolt hole spins and cannot take a bolt. 491975

Fast delivery! Very pleased with fit/finish/quality! Was a little more difficult to follow assembly directions than I anticipated, but had it together two hours later. Likely the best and fastest way to transport four bikes without any damage! 443661

Review from a similar RockyMounts SplitRail in Hitch Bike Racks


Etrailer had the best price and their follow up to make sure I'm happy with the bike rack has been great. I did a significant amount of research before buying the RockyMounts Split Rail bike rack. It does everything the other guys do but always in a better way. The way the rack attaches to the hitch is brilliant, not only does it have the non rattle wedge but that wedge and the bike rack are pulled into the receiver when you tighten the knob. This not only tightens the area around the wedge but also the pin is pulled against the receiver too, creating not only a very solid connection but probably the safest connection in the industry. That hitch pin is also locked to the receiver so even if that knob were to loosen the rack would never fall out going down the road. The cost of a lawsuit from a hitch coming loose and taking out a vehicle following you could be very expensive. Hands down this is the best design on the market! The convenient location of the handle is one of two racks on the market that have it located at the back of the rack. No contortions pulling a pin underneath while raising or lowering the rack. This rack comes with two trays and if you want to add just one more tray it is again one of two racks on the market where you can just add one tray. Most racks sell a two tray add on which makes the rack pretty big especially if you only need a total of 3 trays. This rack is the only one on the market that has all of the features listed above in one bike rack. My only initial negative turned out to be a positive, the lock that pulls out of the hook was difficult to pull out at first and I thought it was a design defect, but on closer inspection there are ridges on the part that pulls out and indentations on the part it slides into making it secure so the locks will not come loose and drag down the road when its unloaded. I've only had the rack for a short time but looking at the engineering and construction I'm sure it will be around for a long time. 324355

Review from a similar RockyMounts SplitRail in Hitch Bike Racks


Placed rack on a 2014 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab 4x4 with a Leer Camper Shell. Customer service was spot on! I was worried about handlebars (30") striking glass on camper. etrailer sent detailed measurements on rack and how to compensate measurements on truck to assure my clearance concerns. The tail gate will clear bike and drop fully down without touching rack when rack is in the down position. The tail gate will not go fully down when rack is in the load position. It strikes the tire block on closest tray. The rear latch handle is in great location when rack needs to be manipulated up or down. Rack is built like a tank. It will last. Assembly was straight forward with included directions. Took longer to unbox parts than to assemble rack. Very pleased with purchase 370397

Review from a similar RockyMounts SplitRail in Hitch Bike Racks


I like this rack; it's solid, and after a year it still feels well-built. Still looks new. Bikes are held effectively. I would recommend it to others. The positives aside, here are the negatives, which is why I only gave it four stars: -The anti-rattle device isn't particularly effective, because it doesn't fit into my trailer hitch (looking at other reviews, this is a common problem). It's less-rattly than my old rack (Saris Cycle-On Pro), but still not as good as it should be. -The screw that retains the lock cable was missing on one arm; I contacted RockyMounts, and they mailed a replacement screw to me a couple days later. 457912

Review from a similar RockyMounts SplitRail in Hitch Bike Racks


I have just installed this product on my Toyota Highlander. As a nearly 60 year old female with rheumatoid arthritis, I was able to assemble and manipulate this rack by myself. Yes, it is awkward and heavy but worth the effort. I did have someone else go after me later to tighten the screws. Once installed, it is easily manipulated into all positions: storage, transport, and tilted. I am better able to lift my Townie bike onto the rack and feel much more confident as I travel; that the bike and rack are staying in place. 382894

Amazed at how fast I received this rack. Everything was there and in good condition because it was packed very well. Clear directions and all of the tools and fasteners made it easy to assemble. I was surprised at how secure it held my ebikes even when driving over a rough road. Very pleased with my purchase. 433258

I really like this Platform carrier.. It is super sturdy and holds the bikes really secure. The only thing I wish was better was the anti sway mechanism. While it is good it throws the carrier off camber or centered I should say.. Just doesn't look symmetrical with the back of the vehicle... 392345

Do you have a question about this Hitch Bike Rack?


  • Rockymounts Split Rail 4 or Kuat Base 2.0 with 2 Bike Add On Comparison
  • I really like the RockyMounts Split Rail # RKY1140-4 because it allows you to go from a 2 bike to either a 3 bike or 4 bike rack depending on the need. The Kuat NV 2.0 # BA22B-BA02B is regarded by many as the nicest bike around but it's either 2 or 4. Split rail comes with a wall rack which is super convenient too. The Split Rail has a reputation for being very easy to operate, including the raise/lower lever, and has a fantastic anti-rattle device. If I were in your situation that's...

  • Will RockyMounts Split Rail Bike Rack Fit 2008 Honda Odyssey and Fold Up
  • When we installed the Draw Tite hitch part # 75270 on a 2008 Honda Odyssey we found that from the center of the hitch pin hole to the furthest point out on the rear bumper it measured 5-1/4 inches. The RockyMounts Split Rail part # RKY1140-4 will clear that folded up as it has a distance of 6-1/2 inches from the pin hole to the nearest part of the rack when folded.

  • Both the Yakima FourTimer 4 Bike Platform Rack # Y02469 and the RockyMounts SplitRail 4 Bike Platform Rack # RKY1140-4 referenced in your question are great, platform-style bike racks that are compatible with 2 inch hitch receivers and can hold up to 4 bikes. I recommend the Yakima FourTimer # Y02469 for a few reasons. The Yakima carrier has a generous distance of 12 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the rack when it is folded for storage. This same...

  • On the RockyMounts SplitRail bike rack # RKY1140-4 when folded up it measures 6-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the rack. If you measure the distance between the center of the hitch pin hole to the rear edge of the spare on your 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and find that it is less than 6-1/2 inches the rack will fit when folded up. If you have a longer measurement let me know and I can make other recommendations.

  • Hitch Mount Bike Rack for Kids Bikes with Training Wheels and Adult Bikes
  • Your 2 kids bikes are not going to fit on the Pro Series Q-Slot # PS63138. There aren't really any good bike rack options for bikes with training wheels. The RockyMounts SplitRail # RKY1140-4 is a potential option though. It is compact enough that the training wheels will be supported. It could prove to be an awkward way to carry a bike that small though and the hook may not come down far enough to clamp down on its front tire.

  • RockyMounts SplitRail Compared to Kuat NV 2.0 4-Bike Racks
  • One of the biggest differences between the Kuat NV 2.0 4-Bike Platform Rack # NV22G-NA22G and the RockyMounts SplitRail part # RKY1140-4 is going to be the price. The SplitRail is around $300 less expensive. It weighs a few lbs less than the NV as well at 76 lbs compared to 86 lbs. So for those reasons I would probably go with the RockyMounts instead. Unless you really want the bike repair stand that's built into the Kuat. The other thing the Kuat wins is stability on the road. If you check...

If you need to upgrade to a 4-bike rack you might take a look at the RockyMounts SplitRail, part # RKY1140-4. When using only 2 bikes it has the same 60 pound per bike weight capacity however, that does drop to 40 pounds when adding the 3rd and 4th bikes. Similarly to the NV, it does include locks for the rack and the bikes, and it also holds the bikes by...

  • Best 4 Bike Rack for a 2013 Chrysler Town and Country
  • Hitches are sold separately from the bike racks, but in general keep compatibility with almost all bike racks. For your 2013 Chrysler Town and Country, I recommend the Draw-Tite Class III, part # 75579. This hitch is a Class III hitch, giving you a wide range of 4 bike rack options, as well as additional options if you ever want to tow a trailer. The installation doesn't require drilling, though you may need to trim the plastic mudflap on the rear wheel wells of the vehicle. I've included...

  • For your 2013 Toyota Sequoia and 2007 Jeep Wrangler I recommend going with the Yakima HoldUp # Y02443-2 because it is more versatile. Both racks have the ability to be 2- or 4-bike racks. Since you will only be carrying 2 bikes on the Jeep this is an ideal set up. The HoldUp also has a little more clearance compared to the SplitRail # RKY1140-4 but neither will be able to fold up on the Jeep (they will clear the spare when in the folded down position). It will also be a little easier to...

  • Can Extension be Used so Folded Up RockyMounts SplitRail Bike RackWill Clear Jeep Spare Tire
  • While there are extensions such as # C45791 that will work there are a couple of problems with using one. First, the use of an extension reduces the tongue weight capacity of the trailer hitch by 50 percent and puts a lot of extra stress on the hitch. And second the use of an extension voids the warranty on RockyMounts bike racks including # RKY1140-4. There are no 4-bike platform racks that can clear 9 inches when then are folded up.

  • On your 2018 Subaru Forester, the Draw-Tite trailer hitch receiver # 75876 will be about 5 inches from the center of the hitch pin to the outer most part of the bumper. The RockyMounts SplitRail 4 Bike Platform Rack # RKY1140-4 will measure 6-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin to the closest part of the rack when folded up for storage, which is adequate clearance. When folded down for carrying bikes, the closest part of the carrier is 11-1/2 inches, so you won't have any issues...

  • Will 4 Mountain Bikes Fit on the RockyMounts SplitRail # RKY1140-4
  • On the RockyMounts SplitRail # RKY1140-4 the center to center spacing from one bike position to the next is 9 inches. It will likely be a tight fit for 4 mountain bikes. The rack will accept tires up to 3 inches wide. The Yakima Yakima FourTimer # Y02469 will offer a little more space so it will be easier to get your 4 mountain bikes on it. The 3 inch wide tires would not be a problem. The FourTimer is the better option for your needs between these two racks.

  • Where Does Spacer Install on RockyMounts SplitRail When Adding 2 Bike Add On
  • I attached a picture of the install instructions for the RockyMounts SplitRail part # RKY1140-4 that you referenced that details the portion that covers the spacer you mentioned. Looking through the included parts that come with this rack it looks like there's only the one spacer and not any extras. For the screw that's not wanting to thread there's a possibility that the threads aren't perfect and that's preventing it from being able to install all the way. Make sure you aren't cross...
