Note: This dual-arm rack reduces the need for a bike frame adapter bar (sold separately) to mount a children's, women's, or alternative frame bicycle. However, to mount certain bikes or to keep your bike level on the rack, a bike adapter bar may be required. Most step-through bikes, dual-suspension bikes, and small children's bikes will require a bike adapter bar.


The Thule Hitching Post Pro is the ultimate bike rack for riders that take their hobby seriously but don't have a ton of money to spend pursuing it. This 4-bike carrier has room for a family of bikes, as well as anti-sway cradles, a tilting mast, folding arms, a hitch adapter and - best of all - a palatable price tag.


Thule Hitching Post Pro anti-sway cradles

Hold Fast anti-sway cradles - found on Thule's Vertex racks - set the Hitching Post Pro apart from other bike racks in this price range. These innovative cradles grip your bike frame at three different points - twice along the top bar and once along a downward bar, such as a seat post. This third point of contact that is created with Thule's No-Sway Cage prevents not only sway, but also front-to-back movement and bike-to-bike contact. The cushioned cradles include reinforced rubber straps to secure the bikes in place. The cradles also include advanced grooves that accommodate bike cables.


Thule Hitching Post Pro dual armsThule Hitching Post Pro dual arms folded down

The dual arms of the Hitching Post Pro provide your bikes with excellent support during transport. The arms provide plenty of space for you to slide and rotate the anti-sway cradles for perfect bike positioning, and they conveniently fold down for storage when not in use with the simple pull of a pin.


Thule Hitching Post Pro tilting mast

For easy access to your vehicle's rear cargo area, the Hitching Post Pro mast tilts forward away from your vehicle. Simply pull a pin at the base to release the mast.


Thule Hitching Post Pro with 2" adapter sleeve on shank

An easy-to-use adapter sleeve is included to convert the 1-1/4" shank for use with 2" hitches. The rack also comes with an anti-rattle device incorporated into the shank to reduce vibration and noise in the hitch for a smooth, quiet ride - simply tighten the hitch bolt with a wrench.


A Snug-Tite hitch lock (THSTL2; sold separately) is available for locking the rack to your hitch. And you can lock your bikes to the rack using Thule's locking cable with a One Key System core so it can be keyed alike with your hitch lock - just purchase a two-pack of Thule lock cores.


The Hitching Post Pro includes an anti-sway strap to reduce movement of the handlebars and front wheels during transport.

This is my first bike rack purchase ever and I am very pleased with my choice. I was contemplating between Thule or Yakima, I decided to go with this Thule because it holds 4 bikes and the value and price was just hard to beat. The quality and build of this rack is very nice. After installing it onto the hitch and inserting the anti-rattle bolt, this piece of hardware is going nowhere. It feels very durable and sturdy. Driving with the rack on without any bikes mounted, I did not even notice or feel that there was a rack mounted behind my vehicle. Very low noise and pleasant to drive with. With the bikes mounted on the rack, it holds each bike very tightly with its straps. Still, a pretty quiet ride with the bikes on. Not much of a rattle but you do notice and hear it slightly especially for rear passengers. As the driver, I barely noticed anything until I looked into my rear view mirror. I highly recommend this bike rack, it's easy to install and worth the price. It feels like a quality rack that can last for many years. 367745

I purchased the Thule bike rack because of the high ratings and good user feedback. I was looking for a fairly simple 2-inch tube rack that would securely hold our family's 4 bikes. Assembly was simple and it's ease of use was great. My Audi Q7 trunk could also open with the hitch in place upright, but without the bikes on. When the bikes were on we were able to use the bottom angled hinge to quickly access the trunk, although it was a 2 person operation to ensure the bikes didn't fall off. We are a family of 4 and have 2 mountain bikes and 2 toddler bikes. I could see how other people have had issues fitting 4 adult sized bikes on the rack, although I can't say for sure that they wouldn't fit. The bar spacing allowed us to get the kids bikes on even though it wasn't super pretty. Once they upgrade to larger bikes it should make it a lot easier. Over all I am very satisfied with the purchase. If I were to offer any critiques I would say that the rack sticks out quite far from the back of my car. It would probably be perfect if I had a spare tire on the back of the car, but in my situation the bikes are pretty far from the car. I also see how people would like the option for a 2-inch OR 1-1/4-inch, but I would have preferred just a solid 2-inch connection. The rack was solid in place for the first hour long ride, but we will have to see over time if it stays rigid with the 2-inch adapter. 295496

While searching for a good hitch bike rack for our 2013 Subaru Outback I was looking for something that would be secure in the hitch and provide good capacity for multiple bikes. I had been looking at the Yakima brand units and while they look great and are strong I learned that almost everything Yakima makes other than cargo boxes is made in China now. Thule however has made a great investmeent in USA by continuing to produce most of their products here (Odd that a USA company produces in China while a Swedish company produces in USA!). The Hitching Post Pro seems like an exclusive product for eTrailer.com as I could not find it anywhere else. Other retailers have a similar unit, but without the anti-sway. The units without the anti-sway were actually higher than the price I paid from eTrailer on the one with anti-sway. I had an issue with another rack without anti-sway where the pedals off my bike scratched our previous Honda CRV. The hitching Post Pro is based on the old style Thule hitch rack, i.e. still using pins for the dual fold down capability rather than the clicking/locking mechanisms and it also has the old style box style main post, but I love the price for what you get with this rack. One suggestion would be to include the locking hitch pin. Thule wants $45 for a locking hitch pin (crazy!) 76493

Product is great. No issues so far. One thing I wish it had were a lock pin

Thule packages the Hitching Post Pro with a non-locking anti-rattle bolt to keep the cost down, but they do offer a locking unit as an opiton. The locking anti-rattle bolt is part # THSTL2
Thule Snug Tite Hitch Lock and Anti-Rattle Device
$46.95
. It's still a threaded bolt that pulls the rack snug, but it is lockable. If you have other Thule racks, you can swap out the lock cores and make them all keyed alike.

We are very pleased with our bike rack and it gets a lot of use. The only reason for one less star is we can't open our rear gate all the way when the bike rack arm is lowered. Otherwise it would get 5 stars hands down. The service has also been excellent from etrailer. They really want to make sure you have the best product to serve your needs. If I ever need another rack, I wouldn't use any other company. Customer for life :-) 431325

The bike hitch was very easy to assemble and install, and folds down to a convenient size when not in use. I’ve already used it to get my daughter’s bike from a friend’s house at night, and it was easy to load and unload. I am looking foreword to taking all our bikes to the trail and riding as a family. 574033

This is a great hitch rack. It's hard to find one that works with the Toyota RAV4 since the rear-mounted tire means a rack has to have a lot of clearance between the vehicle and the vertical part of the rack. This is an easy to use, stable rack that's been great for travel. It's easy to mount and doesn't take up a ton of space when we're not using it. We've used it for in town and out of town bike transport. It hasn't damaged anything on my bike including the paint. The reason it doesn't qualify for 5 stars, in my opinion, is it doesn't easily fit 4 full size bikes, especially those with alternate or woman-type frames. The only other concern I have (this doesn't affect star-rating in my opinion because it's more related to car style than the rack itself) is there is very little ground clearance when the rack is on because of the huge length of the shaft, again, necessary to clear the rear-mounted tire. We've bottomed out several times just driving around town even being very careful to avoid deep driveways etc. It wouldn't be great for any type of off-roading for that reason. I would definitely buy it again and feel this is a much better, more stable alternative to a tire-mounted rack. I put my bike on it so I pretty much trust it with my life :) 338699

I recently ordered this bike rack this October. I first called etrailer to inquire about bike rack for trailer hitches and had no idea which one to go with. The salesman was very well informed and answered any question I had. This hitch for the value makes The most sense for me. I only use the hitch for two bikes, but being Thule has a lifetime warranty, I figured Id spend the extra 10 dollars and get the rack that can support the extra bikes for my future family. The bike rack came mostly assembled and is quite easy to use. The rack is not heavy and sits securely in the hitch. I bought the additional lock for the trailer hitch which is also great and made my Thule. The additional lock came with washers that help secure the hitch into place and make sure it does not move anywhere while driving. The hitch is threaded which also helps the hitch become very secure. I've used this rack quite frequently the past 2 weeks, including highway and city driving. I also had the hitch on the the bicycle mounted during a very windy storm. The hitch stayed secure and the bike was fine. I highly recommend this hitch. I would highly advise to spend the extra 50 dollars to purchase the lock as well, being these things are easy targets to be stolen. My only gripe with the hitch, is that you need an adaptor for any female bicycles. I found out the hard way. I was never made aware that I needed an adaptor and scratched my girlfriends bike all up tying to fit the bike in place. The adaptor cost 20 something bucks and I have not yet used it so I can't say how it works. Will review once I use it. Overall great hitch for the price. A great buy for bicycle enthusiast who travel frequently. 156734

When ordering this product I was excited that id could accommodate two hitch receiver sizes. However, that is this carrier's weakness. The length of the arm is so long that my bicycles bounce severely. I can't use a stabilizing strap since my Toyota Highlander has a plastic spoiler that prevents me from using it. (Unfortunately eTrailer specifically recommended this hitch for my Highlander.) Also the 1 1/4 inch beam that fits into the 2" plastic adapter allows for quite a bit of torque. If you have a 2" hitch I highly recommend buying a bike rack designed for a 2" hitch. This carrier would probably be more solid sitting in a 1 1/4" hitch. By the way, the straps are adjustable. I had trouble attaching two adult and two kid bikes until I properly distributed the location of the straps. 470662

I have contacted Thule and the plastic adapter is made of a composite material with nylon to make it strong. It has been tested thoroughly for safety. If you would still prefer a metal adapter, I recommend part # 853-7489

This product has stood up very, very well. It is difficult to get four bikes on any rack but we have managed to do it a few times with wiggling here and there. I should note these are all adult-sized bikes, too, not little kid bikes. We have driven from SE Michigan to Madeline Island in Wisconsin and back with this hitch and had no problems whatsoever. That was a 12-hour trip each way. We also drove across the state of MI to the Muskegon area recently with all four bikes on the rack. Before any big trip, we check to make sure nothing is loose. So far, it has worked out really well for us. The best way to get them on is to kind of tilt them and wobble them back and forth, slowly rotating the frames back onto the rack. We are very happy with the product. It's true we cannot open the back of our RAV4 with the rack up but we've discovered it's not such a big deal to lower part of the rack (with built-in pin) if we really need to access the back of the car. We do take the rack off during winter as there doesn't seem much point in having it on during that season. 277860

I bought this bike rack back in April but wanted to make sure I used it to give the best review. First I want to say I did a lot of research on bike racks and found this one to be the best one to fit my needs. The best price I found was on etrailer.com, at the time it was When I called the customer service to place my order, I spoke to Dan. He was very pleasant on the phone and took the time and listened to what I needed and understood my concerns. I ordered the bike rack and also ordered the Thule Snug Tite Hitch Lock and Anti-Rattle Device and the Thule Cable Lock w/ One Key System Lock. Dan suggested I also get the Thule Bike Adapter Bar, which I never even thought of getting. Delivery was in about two business days, which was really fast and at the time of order they were running a special free delivery over $99. When I went to put it together I noticed I was missing the flat cap screw M6 x 16mm, part number #853-5787-02. I emailed Dan and within 24 hours received an email that the part was sent out and also in the email their was a link to track the order. After I received the part I did notice that the flat cap screw was actually in the 2 inch adaptor sleeve. The instructions were very easy to read, and it took me about 20 minutes to put together. I did have an issue when I positioned the stinger into the cradle, with the 8mm locking nut, it was not staying tight and when I took it off I noticed the threads inside were gone, so I ended up going out to Lowes and buying a new one and its holds perfectly fine. I also had a question about that part because it is not a locking part and was worried someone would try to steal the rack. I contacted etrailer.com to find if they make a locking device for this and they said no but I can contact Thule to double check, I'm still waiting for an answer back from Thule. The weather finally broke and we installed the rack onto my hitch, tightened it and it doesn't rattle. When I finally used the rack and put my bike on, it did sway a little but at 50 mph I was very happy with it. The trailer comes out just enough away from my car that I do not have to fold completely out and I can open my trunk with no issues. I am very happy with my purchase and had a great customer experience with Dan. Would highly recommend ordering from them to anyone. 529819

Just used this for the first time and I'm happy to report a total success! I installed it in 10 minutes and loaded up all 4 of our bikes very easily (2 adult and 2 kid). Prior to purchase, I read a review stating that you could not fit 4 bikes on the rack--as you can see from my photo that is totally false-- all 4 fit well. I definitely suggest the tilting version because otherwise you probably won't be able to open your hatch to load. On the road, it was stable, no bouncing and quiet-- no rattling. Highly recommend this model! And thanks to Wayne H at etrailer for the great and kind help! 143111


Comments
Thank you for posting pictures. I read the same comment about having trouble fitting 4 bikes, but those four bikes were all adult bikes which hardly compare to your two childrens bikes that are quite small. It would be good for the company to be more specific about what size bikes will fit if they say you can fit 4 bikes on a rack. I will have an adult bike and two kids bikes as well, but for older kids with bigger bikes. My sons being almost as big as mine, but your picture helped put that into perspective. My husband doesnt have a bike right now, but wanted the capability of the rack I purchase of holding 4 bikes if he decided to get one.Thanks for your picture!

Thanks for your comment Kristin. I have included a video link for you to view below where we demonstrated loading 4 adult bikes on a similar hitch mounted 4 bike rack. A few of helpful hints when you get to that point are: make sure that you load the bikes in an alternating fashion, adjust the pedals as needed, and use an adapter bar if needed. The Thule # TH982XT
Thule Bike Adapter Bar for Women's and Alternative Frame Bikes

adapter bar is best used when loading women's, children's, or alternative frame bikes, it allows the bike to be carried a level position.

This is a solid bike rack. We recently invested in a couple of really nice Trek bikes and I didn't feel comfortable strapping them to the back of my car with a $50 bike rack. I am very happy with the sturdiness and the quality of this rack. Fitting 4 bikes on it would be a tight squeeze, but probably doable. I've only had three on mine at any one time. One of the features that I like over this one is the ability for the arms to fold down. This allows me to be able to keep the rack on my car and it still fits in the garage. Definitely worth the extra $50, especially if you plan on keeping it mounted on your vehicle. Oh, and the upgrade in shipping was awesome as well. I received it in just a few days. I highly recommend. Get your's today! 51678

This Thule Hitching Post Pro is a very solid bike rack that fits my 2007 Jeep liberty perfectly. There is no jiggle movement, the bikes fit snug and secure for any length transport. The rack was easy to assemble with the instructions and folds down in a secure position when not in use. I would highly recomment for use with a vehicle that has the spare tire on the rear outside. 438912

I'm very happy with this rack. I bought it strictly on the brand recognition and reputation of Thule. It's very sturdy and well built. It easily installs in my class III receiver and the anti-rattle bolt snugs it in very well. This rack is perfect for my frequency of riding (4-5 times per month). I also take out after each use. If you are a higher frequency rider or plan to leave the rack mounted for the entire season, I recommend a higher end rack. My only complaint (like many others) is the additional $50 fee to purchase a locking bolt for this rack. I still highly recommend this rack for my level of riding! 431731

Ordered the Draw-Tite 24763 for my 2015 Honda Civic Sedan, and was very satisfied at the speed and detail of not only the correspondence and email between etrailer.com but also the shipping speed and condition of packaging. I received this in six days from start to finish of order. I did not spring for faster shipping and was satisfied with this type of time frame considering the size and weight of packaging. I also got the Thule Hitching Post TH934XTR four bike rack and THSTL2 hitch lock anti-rattle device. I had planned ahead by watching all of the great videos on etrailer and printed out some instructions from the site. I guess I shouldn't have been surprised with their attention to detail that this was unnecessary as they included a copy of the same instructions I printed in the box. The install went exactly like the instructions/videos said it would and if I hadn't been interested in getting the beauty plastic underbody piece back on I could have been done in fifteen minutes with a lift and another set of hands. All in all a very easy kit to install, and thanks to etrailer for the speed, quality, and including all the necessary hardware and instructions. 5/5 would definitely do business with again and recommend. 269805

Very happy with my Thule hitch-mounted, four-bike rack. I used to worry about hauling two bikes on my old strap-on rack, but no more! I've yet to use it with four bikes, but it's handled one, two, and three bikes with ease. It's easy enough to install and un-install for one person, and a breeze with two. I've taken several camping trips during which I get stuff out of and put stuff into the back of my Ford Escape. The rack folds down quickly and easily to make this possible-- getting it almost completely out of the way. The one area that could be better is security. There's no way to lock the rack to the hitch nor the bikes to the rack. 558365


Comments
There are several cable locks that are available that would help in getting the bikes locked to the bike rack, such as the # TH538XT
Thule Cable Lock w/ One Key System Lock - 6' Long
$30.95
. For locking the bike rack to the hitch you can use the Thule Snug Tite hitch lock # THSTL2
Thule Snug Tite Hitch Lock and Anti-Rattle Device
$46.95
. I do recommend using this Thule hitch lock since Thule does us propietary threads on their bike racks, so standard hitch pin locks would not work, and would not provide the tightening features.

Mounted on a DrawTite Class III hitch for a 2008 Outback. Assembly was VERY easy, and it seems pretty sturdy overall. I feel a little iffy on the sleeve that converts/fits it to a 2" hitch from a materials perspective - I wasn't expecting it to be plastic/nylon (not 100% sure what it is exactly so correct me if I'm wrong!) but I imagine it'll probably be fine. The small plastic bars that mount the anti-sway cages also seem like they could be subject to wear from the twisting motion to install them, so that's something I'll have to watch out for. Concerns aside, the test drives I did on suburban streets and a few miles of ~75 MPH interstate seemed to go pretty well with two 30-lb bikes on it. I will say that my wife's Salsa Marrakesh has a slightly compact enough geometry that it was a little bit of a challenge getting the top tube over the cradles, so I'd imagine anything smaller than that is going to be difficult to put on there as well, but my Cross Check fit on it just fine. 523278


Comments
Successfully made it on a 800 mile trip with no loss of bikes this spring. Did get some small paint rub on the frame of one of the bikes where the anti-sway cage is located, but I probably could have done a better job of protecting it. Easy to take off and put on when needed. Overall, very satisfied with it.

I ordered the hitch and Thule bike rack for my 2013 Honda CRV and I couldn't be happier how fast I received the products and how easy it was to install. I was able to install the hitch to the car in two hours by myself by following the online video instructions. The one change I made was reinstalling my bottom plastic debris protector panel after I installed the hitch. I added slits to where the cutouts were located and reattached to the underbody of the car. Only one plastic locking fastener I could not re-install afterwards due to the interference of the hitch but was secure enough anyway without it. I hesitated in buying a hitch for the CRV because I thought it would be too expensive to buy and to install but etrailer.com changed that misconception for me. The bike rack was very easy to connect to the hitch and was very secure with no swaying on the hitch. Bikes were easy to load although don't expect the bikes to fit as intended by the manufacturer but I made it work. 276696

Hitch rack was really easy to install and super easy to use! I had a rack that hung off of the rear spoiler on the back of my SUV. My son opened it while the rack was attached and it was torn off. After having it fixed I looked for a different rack that would hold multiple bikes. I did not want to lift the bike onto the top of the car for our normal weekend rides out of town and for our longer family trips there is often a rooftop carrier up top. The rack sits far enough away from the lift gate but I will still have to be careful. I am going to get some pipe insulator and wrap it around the upright so that if my kids open the tailgate, I won't be crying!! 442987

etrailer is a good place to look for hitches, and provided quick and easy delivery. This new trailer hitch by Thule is an improvement over the last one I have because it allows you to easily fold down the bars if you do not have any bikes on them. Also, the entire hitch can easily fold down and out of the way if you need to get into your car trunk. This is the 3rd hitch we have in our family, and we all love our Thule Hitches. 216910

The Thule is a secure system for 4 bikes. Once I spaced the support blocks optimally (especially putting the outermost blocks as far apart as possible), it was not hard to mount all four bikes. The only downside is that the rack sticks out pretty far, and as a result it strikes the ground on speed bumps and sloped driveways. My setup is a Drawtite hitch mount on a Camry, so it must be a fairly common configuration. I even had a machine shop chop off two inches and tap a new hole, to use the available mount clearance and reduce how much it sticks out. I think the frequency of ground strikes is reduced, but it still happens. 212054

The product seems quite sturdy. It was easy to install into the 2" hitch on my 2011 Honda CR-V. The cradles hold the bikes nice and snug, and the anti-sway arms provide added security. As others have mentioned, the anti-sway arms are not described in the installation instructions, so I had to figure those out from pictures. The folding arms and tilting mast made it quite easy to access the rear compartment of the vehicle. I was able to get 4 adult road bikes onto the rack, but it was extremely tight. With the weight of 4 bikes on it, the rack bounced up and down quite a bit while driving. I purchased the hitch lock to go with it, which added 50 bucks to my cost (that seems a bit steep!). But overall I am quite satisfied for the price. Great service and quick delivery from etrailer.com! 143862

Ordered both the Draw Tite Class 3 hitch receiver (75235) and the Thule Hitching Post Pro (TH934XTR) for my 2013 Rav4. Both items arrived quickly, at the same time and in good shape though the hitch was sticking outside of the box in two spots. I did a little sanding and spray painted a couple of chips (with Rustoleum) that took all of 10 minutes. The only real issue (and I'm sure this is pretty standard) was getting the bolts started with the rusty in-frame nuts that most vehicles have. Once I got that done (3 of the 5 nuts), it was all a piece of cake. I did not get a wiring kit for the hitch but may in the future. Thanks to etrailer for giving me a real reason not to use another online retailer! 385326

  • What Does Thule Hitching Post Pro Come with and Will a Female/Child's Bike Fit
    The Thule Hitching Post Pro - Folding Tilting 4 Bike Rack w Anti-Sway - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches Item # TH934XTR is a complete bike rack that comes with the bike rack itself, the 1-1/4 to 2 inch adapter, cradles, anti-sway cages, straps, and threaded hitch bolt. Since you will be putting on a female, child bike on the rack you will likely need adapter bar # 64005 in order to mount the bike to the rack and to carry it more level. I have included links to videos on the bike rack and adapter...

  • Is Threaded Hitch Bolt or Hitch Pin Better for Hanging-Style 4-Bike Rack
    A hitch pin is absolutely a better option than a threaded hitch bolt for a bike rack because it is much easier to use and does not have any comparative drawbacks. A 4-bike hanging-style rack such as the Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR is a very high-quality rack but because of its threaded hitch pin you would also need to carry around the Ratchet with 3/4" Socket for Anti-Rattle Hitch Bolts # PTW38106-24 to tighten it down. A similar bike rack, the Yakima RidgeBack 4 Bike Rack # Y02458...

  • 4-Bike Hanging-Style Hitch Rack for Use in 1-1/4-Inch and 2-Inch Hitches
    Thule's Hitching Post Pro hitch bike rack # TH934XTR has a shipping weight of 41-lbs, so by the time you remove the packaging materials from the equation the rack's actual weight is right around 38-lbs. This is a fairly average weight for a 4-bike rack. This USA-made 4-bike carrier offers excellent value and the flexibility to work well in both 1-1/4-inch hitches and the 2-inch hitches made for your 2016 Toyota Highlander. For a similar 4-bike hanging-style rack that weighs a lot less...

  • Can You Carry Four Bikes On a 2016 Nissan Leaf With Class 1 Hitch
    I do have an option for you but the maximum number of bikes that can be carried on any class 1 hitch is two. The reason that you cannot carry more than two bikes has to do more with the leverage that the additional two bikes place on the trailer hitch more so than the weight. Therefore, if you want to be able to carry more than two bikes you will need to use the EcoHitch Hidden Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 306-X7221 which is the only option for this.

  • 4-Bike Rack Solution that Can Two E-Bikes
    While I have a solution that will allow you to carry 4 bikes including the 65 lb e-bikes you mentioned there isn't a hanging bike rack that would have the needed weight capacity. The Hollywood Rack E-Bike rack part # HR1450Z-E can be used with the 2 bike add on part # HR1475Z and you'd have a 4 bike carrier with the inside two bike cradles having an 80 lb per bike capacity. Looks like you might have fat bikes too so if your tires are wider than 3 inches you'll also need the fat tire...

  • Recommended Economic 4 Bike Rack for 2018 Toyota Highlander XLE
    There are lots of options for bike racks compatible with your 2018 Toyota Highlander XLE. My recommendation is to go with a platform style rack that will tilt for cargo area clearance and fold close to the vehicle when not in use. Hitch pin location is key, but your Highlander won't have any issue with most bike racks because the hitch pin hole is not extremely far back from the outer bumper. My recommendation for you is the Swagman XTC4 4-Bike Rack for 2" Hitches - Platform Style...

In that video you will notice that we measured 7 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole back to clear the rear bumper.

  • Thule Hitching Post Pro Adapter Bar and Locks for Women's and Children's Bikes
    The Thule Hitching Post Pro part # TH934XTR is a great choice with a lot of great reviews from our customers. Most women's bike frames do not have a horizontal cross tube to hang the bike from on the bike rack .

  • Best Bike Rack for 2018 Toyota RAV4

This sturdy hanging-style rack features a hinged arm that allows you to swing the rack out and away from the rear of the vehicle to allow for complete access to the cargo area on your RAV4.

  • How To Install Anti-Sway Cradle On Thule Trailway or Hitching Post Pro
    The anti-sway cradles part # 852-2903-001 for the Thule Trailway which is the same as our Thule Hitching Post Pro part # TH934XTR just snaps onto the main cradle body part # 853-7887. It may take a bit of force to do this but nonetheless that is the process. This does not require any tools nor do you need to remove anything to do so. The rubber strap part # 852-3006-001 then secures the bike to the anti-sway cradle.

    It sounds like you are looking for a hanging-style bike rack that can be extended from a 2-bike model to a 4-bike model, and vise versa. The best option for a hanging-style rack will be to simply go with a 4-bike model, such as the excellent Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR, then only use the inner most cradles when transporting just 2 bikes. There is not a hanging-style rack currently available that can be physically converted from a 4-bike design to a 2-bike. The Thule Hitching...

  • Can Carbon Fiber Road Bike be Carried on Thule Hitching Post Bike Rack

    When we installed the Draw Tite hitch part # 75116 on a 2004 Mitsubishi Montero like yours we found that the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole out to the rear most portion of the spare was 13 inches. That means you will need a bike rack that has at least 13 inches of clearance from it's pin hole to the upright bar of the rack.

To fold the arms down or to tilt the rack back away from the vehicle, the Hitching Post Pro uses snapper pins that need to be removed, while the Vertex uses quick release latches.
