Approved for use on cars, trucks, vans, SUVs, and motorhomes - not approved for fifth wheels or towable campers

The RockyMounts SplitRail LS platform-style bike rack lets you carry 3 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. You can also easily remove the front position on the rack to carry 2 bikes if you don't need that 3rd bike position for your ride. 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 SplitRail LS Adjustable Wheel Arm

The Rack allows you to quickly and easily load and carry 3 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 SplitRail LS 2 Bike Rack Adjustable Rear Wheel 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

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.


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 SplitRail LS Anti Wobble Hitch Lock Diagram

The RockyMounts SplitRail installs quickly and easily into your 2" hitch receiver. Insert the shank into your vehicle's hitch receiver, then install the hitch pin and tighten it down. As the pin tightens, it engages the 3-axis anti-wobble bolt inside the shank. This system will reduce noise and movement while the rack is installed.


Security Features

RockyMounts SplitRail LS 2 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 SplitRail LS Hitch Lock and Hitch 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 LS 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 LS Hanging Mount

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 36" off the ground so the rack can hang unobstructed.


Optional 1-Bike Add-On for 4 Bike Carrying Capacity

RockyMounts SplitRail Bike Rack Add-On Demonstrated

There is an optional 1-bike add-on available (RKY1150 - sold separately) for the RockyMounts SplitRail that will allow you to convert it from a 3-bike carrier to a 4-bike carrier.

The product is great, love the sturdy build of the rack. It was easy to assemble, instructions were clear to understand. The only thing I didn't like was that I ordered the 3 bike rack, it shipped in two different boxes so the security key lock was not "Keyed Alike" meaning I now have two different keys, one for the hitch loch and two of the bike rail locks and one for the third bike rail lock. Very inconvenient. 688106

Ask the Experts about this RockyMounts Hitch Bike Racks

  • Why is 3-Bike Rack Not Approved for Use Behind Flat Towed Vehicle
    The RockyMounts SplitRail LS 3 Bike Platform Rack # RKY11404-3 has not been approved for use behind a flat towed vehicle or trailer by the manufacturer because a rack that far back from the main vehicle chassis results in significantly extra movement. It can create a jarring effect that can damage the bike rack, so only certain racks which have been tested by the manufacturers are approved for use when towing or on motorhomes. While you can do it, the warranty would be voided if anything...

  • Does Rockymounts Splitrail LS3 Fit 2019 Subaru Outback without 2 inch Hitch
    As long as you have a 2 inch hitch on your 2019 Subaru Outback the RockyMounts SplitRail LS 3 Bike Platform Rack # RKY11404-3 fits without requiring a hitch adapter. If you are in need of a hitch the Draw Tite part # 76227 is a confirmed fit and would work well. It would easily have clearance for the SplitRail and since only the hitch opening hangs below the rear bumper it looks better than most hitch installs as well.

  • Instructions Link for Bike Add On for RockyMounts SplitRail 3 Bike Tray Style Rack
    If you check out the install link down below (probably the second one listed), you'll see specific instructions for just the add-on portion of the RockyMounts SplitRail 3 Bike Tray Style Rack # RKY11404-3 that you referenced. There are tools involved in the process.

  • Vertical Clearance for RockyMounts SplitRail 3 Bike Platform Rack RKY11404-3 Above Hitch Tube
    RockyMounts' SplitRail 3 Bike Platform Rack # RKY11404-3, when not loaded and with its ratcheting arms folded down, will extend up 9-1/2-inches above the top of the shank while in the carrying (down) position. So if you measure from the top of your receiver opening up 9-1/2-inches you can check to see if the tailgate will open without contact.

  • Do All Locks on the RockyMounts SplitRail 3 Bike Platform Rack Use the Same Key
    Because the RockyMounts SplitRail 3 Bike Platform Rack - 2" Hitches - Wheel Mount - Tilting Item # RKY11404-3 is comprised of the 2-bike version plus the add-on the locks included with the base rack and add-on may not use the same key. Add a 4-pack of lock cores, # RKY0334, sold separately, to ensure all locks are keyed alike. I have included a link to a video review of this bike rack for you.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 2019 BMW X3 and 2018 Lexus NX 300 for Heavier Bikes
    Since you need a weight capacity of 40 lbs per bike you do have to go with a hitch mounted option as all of the trunk options are limited by a 35 lb per bike capacity. For brand new vehicles like yours you really wouldn't want a trunk rack touching the paint of the vehicle anyway. So you'll need a hitch on both vehicle. For that you'd want the Curt # C13337 for the 2018 Lexus NX 300 and part # 76226 for the 2019 BMW X3 and that's taken care of. Then for a 3 bike rack we have the...

  • How to Use Replacement Integrated Cable Lock for RockyMounts SplitRail Bike Rack
    You can replace the integrated cable lock of your RockyMounts SplitRail LS 2-Bike Platform Rack # RKY11404 - as well as the 3-Bike # RKY11404-3 and 4-Bike # RKY11404-4 with the SplitRail Integrated Cable Lock Replacement # RKY12005. I asked a representative of RockyMounts about how to replace this lock and was told that you will only need to undo a set screw and they include a Torx wrench with the lock so you can easily accomplish this.

  • Recommendation For Hitch 3 Bike Rack For a 2011 Toyota RAV4 With Rear Spare Tire
    For a solid hitch mounted bike carrier, I recommend the Kuat Transfer 3 Bike Platform Rack, Item # TS03G. To see if it will clear the rear spare tire of your 2011 Toyota RAV4, you will need to take some measurements. On the Transfer there is 7-1/2 inches between the hitch pin hole and the closest part of the rack when it is folded down and 5 inches when it is folded up. For some other 3 bike options that have more clearance for your spare tire, I recommend looking at the RockyMounts...

  • Platform Style Bike Carrier that Can Hold at Least 3 Bikes for the Back of an RV
    There are only certain bike carriers that can be used at the back of an RV. And since you are looking for a platform style and want to carry at least 3 bikes there are 2 options. We have the RockyMounts SplitRail, # RKY11404-3, and the RockyMounts MonoRail 3, # RKY10004-10005. Both racks fit 2 inch trailer hitches only, hold 3 bikes, and secure the bikes at the wheels. Both racks can also easily convert to 2-bike racks if needed. I have included links to video reviews of these carriers for you.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch And Bike Carrier For 1999 Honda CR-V
    The trailer hitch we offer that has the shortest distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the outside edge of the rear-mounted spare tire on a CR-V is the Curt Trailer Hitch, part # 13314. That measurement is 6-1/2 inches. This is a Class lll hitch and it has a 2 inch receiver opening. This measurement was taken with a 2000 CR-V, but a word of caution is to make sure you do not have an oversized tire on the back that could affect the clearance you need. I have attached a link...
