Yakima 8002443 HoldUp Bike Rack In Use

The Yakima HoldUp is a premium, tray-style bike rack that lets you carry 2 bikes using your vehicle's hitch. This rack is specifically designed to carry bikes with big tires and wide handlebars, but it will carry just about any bike, including those with wheels from 20" to 29", carbon frames, disc brakes, thru axles, or full suspensions.


Wheel-Mount Design for Easy Bike Loading

Yakima 8002443 HoldUp Bike Rack Large Front Wheel Holders

The HoldUp is easy to load, even if your bikes have monster wheels. The deep, contoured front wheel cradles accommodate just about any wheel out there, and the pivoting arms with StrongArm technology ensure that your bikes are held firmly in place.


Yakima 8002443 HoldUp Bike Rack Ratcheting Arm

To load a bike, simply place your front wheel in the holder, rotate the pivoting arm up and over the wheel, and press down firmly on the ratcheting hook. To release the hook, simply press the built-in red button and slide the hook up and off your wheel.


Yakima 8002443 HoldUp Bike Rack Adjustable Rear Wheel Cradles

Large rear wheel holders allow the HoldUp to accommodate a wide variety of bike wheelbases. These wheel holders pivot front to back, adjusting automatically to your wheel size - no need for sliding and tightening. Secure the wheels in place with the ratcheting straps built into each holder.


Yakima HoldUp Ratcheting Arm No Frame Contact

Mounting bikes by the wheels helps prevent any scratches or scuffs to the paint. The ratcheting hooks are padded, however, so they won't mark your wheels. And the pivot mechanisms in the arms are overbuilt to ensure they keep functioning smoothly over a lifetime of hard use.


Fully Adjustability Bike Trays

Yakima 8002443 HoldUp Adjustable Bike Trays

The wheel trays on the HoldUp are fully adjustable to ensure that you have all the space you need when mounting bikes with mammoth handlebars, such as a 29er. To adjust a wheel tray, loosen the 4 bolts where the tray attaches to the rack base and slide the tray left or right to achieve the desired spacing. Retighten the bolts and you're ready to roll with optimum handlebar clearance and no fear of bike-to-bike contact during transport.


Complete Security

Yakima 8002443 HoldUp Bike Rack Built-in Cable Locks

The HoldUp has a cable lock built into the end of each pivoting arm. These cables loop through your bike frames and attach to posts on the bike rack arms to secure your bikes in place. The cables store in the arms when not in use.


Yakima 8002443 HoldUp Bike Rack Locking Hitch Pin

The rack also has a HitchLock hitch pin that allows you to lock the rack to your vehicle. The threaded pin also works as an anti-rattle device to reduce noise and movement of the rack when it's mounted in your trailer hitch receiver.


The cable locks and HitchLock hitch pin include keyed-alike Same Key System (SKS) lock cores. These cores can be swapped out to make all your Yakima products keyed alike.


Tilting Design and Compact Storage

Yakima 8002443 HoldUp Bike Rack Folded for Storage

The HoldUp stores more compactly than similar platform-style racks, and features a spring-loaded pin at the base that lets you fold the rack up against the rear of your vehicle when it's not in use. First rotate the front wheel holders inward and tilt the rear wheel holders inward, then rotate the pivot arms down and use the ratcheting hooks to secure the arms to the rear wheel holders. Once the arms are in place, pull the pin and fold the rack up against your vehicle.


Yakima 8002443 HoldUp Bike Rack Tilted for Rear Cargo Access

The same pin can also be used to tilt the rack down 20 degrees for easier bike loading. The tilting feature can also be used when the is rack fully loaded, so you can gain easier access to your vehicle's rear cargo area without unloading your bikes.


Optional 2-Bike Add-On

Yakima 8002443 HoldUp Bike Rack 2 Bike Add-on

There is a 2-bike add-on available (Y02446 - sold separately) for the HoldUp that will allow you convert it from a 2-bike carrier to a 4-bike carrier. To install the add-on on your HoldUp, simply remove the endcap from the bike rack base, slide the add-on's shank into the hole on the bike rack, and secure the shank with a bolt that comes with the add-on.

Video Transcript for Yakima HoldUp Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2016 Buick Enclave

Today on our 2016 Buick Enclave we're doing a test fit of the Yakima HoldUp platform-style 2-bike rack. That part number is Y02443. Now we already have our bike secured down. We're first going to show you one of the key features of this rack. We're going to come to the back and lift up and then pull out on the red pin closest to our vehicle. That's going to allow us to tilt our bike rack away from our vehicle.

Now we do have to be careful. We do have an automatic hatch here. Going to try and open this up and see if we can't gain full access. It looks like we're just going to make contact right there at our handlebars. We're not going to be able to open that up all the way.

If you have somebody slowly open this and stop it, you may be able to gain some access into your hatch area. Just keep that in mind. We'll lift straight up on our bike rack until that secures back into place. As for how our bike is secured down, here at the back we have a ratcheting strap. We're just going to pull up on our red button here to loosen it and then ratchet it down with the black portion to tighten it. Remove that.

Then at the front we have a wheel hook which sits either in front of our brakes or in front of our frame depending on how our bike is made. We would just push on the red button there to release it and then push straight down to ratchet it down. We also have the option to use that cable lock at the top that's going to help prevent theft and tampering of the bikes themselves. We'll push that off to the side and we can take our bike off and set it off to the side as well. With that out of the way we do have a certain way we can fold everything up. We're just going to fold up our front wheel cradle towards the back, fold our back wheel cradle down so it holds that in place.

Then we'll take our wheel hook. We're going to tilt this all the way back and ratchet that down. This is going to secure everything in place and make sure nothing opens back up. What's great about this compared to other racks is that it's a more compact position. You're not adding so much on the side. We'll take a few measurements here. First is going to be overall. We've got about 29" added. Ground clearance, we have about 23-1/4". Closest point's going to be about 4" away. From the center of our hitch pinhole to our closest point we're going to have about 9". Now keep in mind that we do have a factory hitch on this vehicle. If you have an aftermarket hitch on your Enclave it might be a little different for those measurements. At this point we would be able to gain that full access into our back hatch but we're just going to move on, once again pulling out on that handle. Our bike rack folds up against our vehicle for a more compact position for parking or anything else that you may need it closer to your vehicle. We're not going to have to worry about our closest point because everything is secure. We've got about 10" added to our vehicle now, with a ground clearance of about 16-1/2". As for our hitch, this is designed to work with 2" hitches only. We have our anti-rattle bolt and lock over here that's going to help prevent theft and tampering. The anti-rattle bolt's going to keep a lot of shake and play out of the bike rack as you head down the road. That's going to be our completed look at the Yakima HoldUp platform-style 2-bike rack, part number Y02443, on our 2016 Buick Enclave.Speaker 2: This is our test course. Let's start with the slalom. This shows side to side action such as turning corners or evasive maneuvering. Then onto our alternating speed bumps. This shows twisting action such as hitting curbs, potholes, road debris, or uneven pavement. Last of all, the speed bumps. This shows up and down action such as driving through a parking lot or parking garage, or driving in and out of a driveway.

Received in good condition and quicker than promised. Product was easy to assemble and fitted to vehicle well. Loaded bikes easily and adjusted tray positions to avoid bikes coming in contact with each other (none come in contact with vehicle). Tilt down feature is great and allows access into back of vehicle. Test drove around neighborhood and bikes only moved slightly. Unloaded bikes easily and folded up carrier and drove around like that - no problems. Included cable locks are good but can't reach back tires, so need to buy another cable lock to fully secure the bikes - this is the only reason to downgrade one step from Excellent. 181598

Very sturdy. Holds bikes in place with minimal movement. The two bikes don't touch and the rack doesn't touch the frame. I had been putting my bikes in the back of my SUV. They leaned on one another. This rack also clears up the back so I can carry passengers. Etrailer was extremely fast with shipping. Make sure you order what you want. The order will be processed and shipped before you can blink. I was extremely pleased with the fantastic communication and monitoring of the package. Great company. 22058

Excellent product. Well made. I am investing in a front wheel tie down to wrap around the wheel chock. It would be great if you included one similar to the one currently on the rear wheel chock. 83970


Comments

I have a 2004 Land Rover Discovery II with a rear tire mounting on the back gate. I do have a 2 receiver, I need a 4 bike holdup trailer hitch. Will the 2 receiver support the weight and will the unit clear the rear monstrous spare tire in the back?

-- comment by: Garry C - 09/08/2013

Check the owners manual for the weight capacity of the hitch. Look for the tongue weight figure. As long as the rack and all the bikes combined weigh less than that figure, you are good to go. Whether or not it will clear the spare requires some measuring. I have added a link that shows you how to measure your clearance. Each of out bike racks that we list will have this clearance measurement in the description.

The Yakima Holdup 2 Bike Hitch Mount works as advertised and from the product instructions had absolutely no trouble with the installation on a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Summit. The mount is substantial, sturdy and simple. One comment for "etrailer.com"...DON'T CHANGE ANYTHING. The entire online experience was flawless. Your website was so easy, very informative and communication was "above and beyond" from searching, product research, explanations, ordering, email followups with order submitted, received, shipped, tracking (both on your site with a map of where the product currently is located and UPS tracking info) and delivery. I can't come up with any suggestions. I will definitely shop etrailer.com again...THANK YOU!!! 32420

Great product!! I already had one of these bike racks I had been using for over a year and then someone rear-ended my car. the impact crushed the rack, but the rack did a great job protecting my bike so I only had minor damage on the bike. I ordered the exact same bike rack from etrailer.com and it was delivered almost immediately even with regular free shipping. 208848

The bike rack is awesome, well built and easy to assemble. The only issue that i have is that the product description says that these are suppose to have ratcheting straps to secure the tires and mine most definitely DOES NOT. Its not a big deal but still. 637274


Comments

Yakima recently made an update to the strap assembly on the wheel tray of the HoldUp. The old mechanism could stick and jam occasionally, so Yakima improved it. Well be updating our product description photos and videos shortly.

Great bike rack. Bought a new RAV 4 and needed the rack ASAP for a bike benefit in Milwaukee. Ordered it on Tuesday, got it on a Thursday left for Milwaukee on Friday. Highly recommend ETRAILER for their exceptional advice and follow up. 514883

Bike rack was shipped quickly and came undamaged. The assembly was easy with good instructions. It's a quality bike rack that should last for years. 541496

This bike carrier meets all of our expectations. The instructions were easy to follow except for one glitch. After using the carrier the first time, I discovered that I reversed the two trays. They are identical construction; the only difference is the YAKIMA sticker which ended up upside down. The instructions do not clearly state anything regarding which tray to mount first. However the illustration does show which one should be first - I didn't catch it. Correcting it was very easy - so all is well. 291026

We have used the bike carrier several times during the past year with no issues. We love the design and the ease of use.

The bike rack works as advertised, but the powder coating on the 2" steel was to thick and got stuck in the hitch. After an hour of trying to get it out and a call to a friend, I belt sanded the powder coating and it is all is good now. 546130

Build like a tank. Can mount a bike on in less than 10 sec. Really secure. Downside is bit heavy. 33126

I purchased the Yakima bike rack because of the companies' reputation that for making quality products, and the informative video presented by the staff at etrailer. This carrier is everything they claim it is. It's very heavy duty, easy to mount and secure all types of bikes, whether they be BMX, mountain or road bikes, and, most importantly, rides so smoothly behind the vehicle (due to the well engineered arm that goes into the receiving hitch) that you forget it's there. I truly believe many a bike will wear out before this rack wears out. I would not hesitate to recommend this carrier to anyone who serious about quality and value. It may be pricier than some of the competitors, but most of the time you get what you pay for. Thanks also to the people at etrailer for ranking the Yakima so highly and for how well it was packaged for shipping. 330008

The bike rack exceeded my expectations! Well-designed and sturdy , yet not so heavy that I couldn't install it on my vehicle myself. Also E-trailer delivered the product as quickly as promised. 91902


Comments

Entirely disagree with the light enough comment- I purchased the 2 2 version and it has to weigh the most awkward 125 lbs Ive ever carried. Pay the extra $$ and get the KUAT aluminum version. Makes it even more of a PITA when trying to lift it up to vertical. Takes two people and cannot expect my wife and 7 yr old to manhandle it. Enginerds should have used a coil spring to assist with the lift. Also- after owning for 8 months, theres significant pooled corrosion i.e. orangered liquid oozes from every nook/cranny after a rain. They clearly did not protect the interior and expect that very soon the powdercoating will give way to flaking leafs of corroded metal. A huge shame for something that set me back so much $$$.KUAT- lighter and wont rust!

I spent nearly $800 for the 2 up with plus 2. Light enough, maybe if you only use the 2 bike version, it weighs over 50 lbs. I have the older grey 2 up along with the 2 plus making it hold 4 bikes. Combined they weigh about 100 lbs. No way one person can put the receiver in the hole. Very difficult for one person to raise up the unit from horizontal also. Two different size wrenches needed to take on and off bike as I have to remove the plus 2 first, 34 wrench then a 15/16 is needed on hitch. The plus 2 also does not come with a lock to secure it to the 2 up or a cable to lock the bikes to the rack. You will need to purchase them separately, another $50. I have also had two of the arms fail in a little over a year now, they have a lifetime warrantee but that gets old replacing them.Rack does hold bikes very good, but I am not happy overall with my purchase. Other models out there for this kind of money take a look.

This is a great rack and extremely well made. The consumer assembly is only the two cross arms with two bolts each. I debated between this and a similar Thule. The cable with integrated lock and the lockable hitch pin sold me on this one. I have two K2 29'ers and they fit well in the tire saddles. The pivot arm locks down tight on the front wheel as does the strap on the rear wheel making the bikes are very stable for traveling. The large threaded hitch pin dampen all the slop in the hitch receiver. The only con I have is the 20 degree fold down does not allow my 2009 Town & Country rear hatch to fully open. This may not be a problem with other vehicles. For all the pros on this rack I can live with the con. 64381

The Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike Rack for 2" Hitches works as intended. We have hauled our bikes on a trip over 2000 miles behind our Ford F-150...completely satisfied so far. 726090



- Y02443
by:

This rack is your best bet if you’re looking for an economical and quality platform rack. The comparable Thule and Kuat models do not have an integrated lock system like the Yakima. It was very simple to assemble and even easier to hitch up and load my bike. Works great with a Tacoma. I used to have a hanger-style rack and this platform is far superior. 705806



- Y02443
by:

Great rack! I like that it literally takes 2 minutes to put two mountain bikes on or off. Holds bikes securely without scratching or damage. It's so easy to use that it encourages you to just throw the bike on the back of the van and go somewhere. Previously, we had to take the seats out of the mini-van, roll the bikes into the van leaning them against the side, and tie the bikes down inside the van so they wouldn't fall over while driving. This was a major pain. 704954



- Y02443
by:

Love everything about this EXCEPT, the "hook" bar that holds the bike down should 1) be extendable, and 2) be able to be pulled toward you and out of the way of parts of the bike so that you can maneuver it over parts of the bike (say, handlebars) so you can position it where you want (say, middle of the frame). It is somewhat limited in where you can position it. 676599

Love the bike rack but it doesn't fit my BMW receiver. My 2014 X5 has a 3500 lb hitch supplied by BMW - made buy Brink. The receiver is 5/16" too short to accept the bike rack without modification. 674919



- Y02443

Love this product so far! I’m using this with the Yakima Backswing for my 2018 Jeep Wrangler JLU. Makes loading and unloading a breeze and uninhibited access to the rear hatch. Installation was a breeze. Sturdy set up that also looks good! 674568

We have had this Yakima Holdup hitch bike rack for a year now and found it was shipped quickly, installed easily, and is handy to use on the back of our 2014 Grand Cherokee. We did have one bad screw head while assembling it and Yakima sent us a screw kit with no charge also quickly. No other problems. It seems to be quite heavy duty and should hold up well. The bikes are held on tight and do not sway. For this vehicle, you do have to tilt it back a little to open the tail gate. That has not been a problem. Label me a happy camper. 658528

Bike rack is solid and easy to assemble. The inclusion of the hitch pin lock is a nice bonus! It will handle 29'ers with no issue. The built in wheel cable locks are nice but too short so you can only lock the front wheel (the rest of the bike can be easily removed). Overall, this is a great bike rack. etrailer.com was on their game (as usual) with best price and free shipping. The item arrived a day early which was nice. I've purchased 2 hitches and a bike rack and will continue to purchase from etrailer. The best in the business. 652223

I like the product but for only one thing, it is a little small for my ebike, other wise for regular bikes it's fine. I bought it because it said that it fits ebikes and there weight but alas that is not so with mine. So I give it a 3 star out of 5. It is well made they can also improve on their locking mechanism. 619495

This is the first time that I've used etrailer and I'm impressed with the customer service. Molly was very helpful in helping me to place may order and follow-up with the status. I had found a lower price on the web and the etrailer team quickly refunded 110% to my credit card with no hassle. Shipping was quicker than quoted by one day. The product, Yakima Holdup 2, is perfect for our two Pedego Interceptor ebikes. Easy to load and unload and definitely can see the quality. I've always used Yakima and this product does not disappoint. Fits perfect on my Nissan Titan with 2" tow receiver. 471618

Both items were shipped very quickly and arrived as expected. Very useful and informative videos on etrailer’s website for the hitch installation specific to my car. 467757

It has been a year since I bought this bike rack and I am so pleased with it. I owned a different bike rack prior to this one and it was a nightmare. I lost one of my expensive bikes due to poor engineering. Yakima is amazing I don't have any issues with it. I highly recommend this product. 321820

Had one of the bicycle trays replaced. The arm had too much play. Replacement was free and the folks at etrailer and at Yakima were great. Go Trump. Replacement part was free and shipped quickly and free as well. I really like the product. I would purchase it again. 317117

Ask the Experts about this Yakima Hitch Bike Racks

Do you have a question about this Hitch Bike Rack?


  • Why Yakima HoldUp Bike Rack Is Not Rated For RVs
  • Bike carriers that are designed to work on the rear of an RV are made so that they can take the additional stress at the back of the RV. Yakima does not recommend using the HoldUp Rack on RVs because a bike rack mounted on the rear of a motor home will be subject to more shaking and jarring than would be experienced when mounted in the receiver on a passenger vehicle. This is primarily caused by two factors, the distance between the rear axle of the RV and the receiver, and the stiffer...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for Carrying an E-Bike with a 2016 Land Rover Range Rover
  • Thank you for the picture! Based off of that it looks like your 2016 Land Rover Range Rover is either an Evoque or a Sport. If you have an Evoque then I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13128 but if you have the Sport use the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13243. Both options give you what you need to carry a hitch mount bike rack but a stabilizer strap like part # 18050 must be used for non-trailer products (like a bike rack) to keep in accordance with the Curt warranty.

  • Bike Rack and Trailer Hitch Receiver to Clear Spare Tire on 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • The Draw-Tite # 76104 measures 6-1/2" from the front mounting plate to the edge of the receiver (see accompanying photo), and that is the longest hitch available for your 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. As you mentioned, the Thule T2 Classic 2 Bike Platform Rack # TH9044 measures 4-1/2" to the closest part of the rack when folded so there isn't going to be a hitch that lets you fold the rack up on a '16 Wrangler Unlimited. That leaves you with a couple options - 1) Get the Thule T2 Classic...

  • Can the Yakima HoldUp Be Used On a 2018 Jeep JL Wrangler Unlimited with the Yakima BackSwing
  • Yes, the Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike Rack part # Y02443 and the Yakima HoldUp EVO 2 Bike Rack part # Y02479 will work with the Yakima BackSwing Swing Away Hitch Extender part # Y02483. I confirmed this with my contact at Yakima for you. They have tested these together which is why they are able to confirm fit. The Kuat Pivot Swing Away Hitch Extender part PV20B is no longer available but you could still use the Kuat NV 2.0 2-Bike Platform Rack part # NV22B with the Yakima BackSwing Swing Away...

  • Comparing the Yakima HoldUp 2 Part # Y02443 with the Kuat Transfer 2 Part # TS02G
  • For your 2017 Lexus NX, the best bike rack for you is going to depend on the type of bikes you have and how often you plan to carry them. Both the Kuat Transfer 2 part # TS02G and the Yakima HoldUp 2 part # Y02443 are excellent bike racks that will work well for you. However, I recommend the Yakima HoldUp as it has a bit more features that will work with your bikes and vehicle better than the Kuat Transfer will. For starters, the HoldUp can carry bikes weighing up to 60 lbs each whereas...

  • Why Won't Replacement 1-1/4" Tongue # 8880581 Fit in 1-1/4" Receiver
  • If you currently have the Yakima HoldUp # Y02443 for 2" receivers then it is for some Class II but mostly Class III receivers. However, since you installed the Replacement 1-1/4" Tongue # 8880581 this essentially made it part # Y02445 which is compatible with 1-1/4" receivers as long as they don't have a weld stop like some Class I receivers have (see attached photo). If the problem is that you can't get the shank of the bike rack to even start in the receiver then I would measure the...

  • Replacement Rear Wheel Assembly for Yakima HoldUp Bike Rack
  • I'm sorry to hear that you were hit by a car (hopefully you're ok!) and we do have exactly what you need, though the arm by itself is not something that is available from Yakima as a replacement part. For your Yakima HoldUp 2-Bike Rack # Y02443 you will need the Replacement Rear Wheel Assembly for Yakima HoldUp Bike Carriers # 8890281. Just in the interest of thoroughness (because front and rear can be confusing on bike racks) I did add a photo showing the difference between the Rear...

  • Replacement Tongue For Yakima Holdup Bike Carrier To Replace 2-inch Tongue With 1-1/4 Inch
  • If you have a 2-inch Yakima Holdup bike carrier like part # Y02443, we have a replacement tongue, part # 8880581, that can be used to make the bike carrier a 1-1/4 inch carrier. I spoke with my contact at Yakima and they said an adapter cannot be used with any of their bike carrier to reduce the tongue other than the Holdup bike rack I mentioned above.

  • Comparison of Yakima Holdup, Kuat Transfer 2, and Sherpa 2.0
  • If I had to pick between the three bike racks you mentioned I would go with the Kuat Sherpa part # SH22G for a few reasons. It's the lightest weight at 32 lbs, (Transfer is 37 and Holdup is 49), it's the most stable on the road (I attached a test course video for each and over the speed bumps it was the most stable). I would not worry about the wheel trays being smaller either. The straps and wheel hook are very stable and secure the bikes well. We also have quite a few reviews from our...

  • Recommended Bike Rack for Tongue of R-Pod With Electric Tongue Jack
  • To mount a bike rack to the tongue of your R-Pod you will want to start out by using the Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk Trailer-Mounted Bike Rack Carrier for A-Frame Trailers # CC-275. This will give you a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver opening for you to use a bike rack with. From the top of the A-frame of your R-Pod to the top of the cross tube is 33-1/2 inches, which should clear your electric tongue jack, and it has a weight capacity of 100 lbs. The bike rack that I recommend using with...

  • Is the Yakima HoldUp Replacement Shank # 8880581 Compatible With Draw-Tite Receiver on 2014 Mustang
  • Normally the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24863 is the hitch receiver that I would recommend for your 2014 Ford Mustang, but since you are wanting to use the Yakima HoldUp with a 1-1/4 inch shank, like part # Y02445, you will need to go with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11210 instead. Keep in mind that the Curt hitch receiver requires the use of a Support Strap # 18050 for all non-trailer loads per the Curt warranty. The reason that I recommend the Curt in...

  • How To Replace the Locking Cable On a Yakima HoldUp Bike Rack After Face Has Been Damaged
  • In order to replace the bike lock cable on the Yakima HoldUp Bike Rack like part # Y02443 you will need to use the Replacement Cable Lock Assembly part # Y8890284. There would be no way to unlock the core you have now if the face was damaged but this is not required to replace the cable anyhow so long as it is not inserted into the pin. Please note, the above cable lock does not come with a lock core or change key which you will need therefore you will either want to let me know your key...

  • Parts Needed to Tow with a 2015 Honda Accord EX V6
  • Out of the available trailer hitches for your 2015 Honda Accord I recommend going with the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11681 over the Draw-Tite Sportframe # 24899. They are both identical in Class and weight ratings and come with a 1-1/4" receiver. Please note that Class I trailer hitches are only rated to carry up to 2 bikes. The Curt warranty requires a Stabilizer Strap # 18050 for all non-supported loads, like the Yakima HoldUp # Y02443, but it doesn't have the weld stop inside...

  • Can I Add Two Additional Bikes To My Yakima Platform Bike Rack
  • If you have the Yakima HoldUp Bike Rack part # Y02443 or the Yakima HoldUp EVO Bike Rack part # Y02479 then yes, you can use the 2-Bike Add-On for Yakima HoldUp part # Y02446 or the 2-Bike Add-On for Yakima HoldUp EVO part # Y02482 to carry an additional two bikes assuming you have the capacity on your hitch. These are the only two Yakima bike racks that have this capability.

  • How To Reduce Wobble On the Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike Rack
  • I do have an option for you but I cannot confirm the SilentACT Anti-Rattle Trailer Hitch Accessories Lock part # SHP2082 will work with the Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike Rack like part # Y02443. That said, even if it were to fit it would likely not reduce wobble any more than the threaded hitch pin included with the bike rack. Instead, I recommend the Gen-Y Anti-Rattle Clamp part # 325-GH-033 for 2" or part # 325-GH-013 for 1-1/4" as these will reduce wobble (inside the shank) and they also make...

  • Will BikeBag Bike Rack Cover Fit over Yakima Holdup Bike Rack
  • I have a way for you to check but it's hard for us to say if the Yakima HoldUp 2 # Y02443 will fit with the BikeBag part # B01571 that you referenced. Take a rope and use it to measure the distance around the circumference of your bike rack when loaded (measure around the tire as that's the widest point), now lay that rope out and measure it with a tape measure. If the distance is less than 180 inches the cover will fit. See picture.

  • Ladder Rack and Tonneau Cover Combination for 2018 Ford F-150 Short Box for Kayak Transport

Both of these are outstanding products and they are fully compatible with each other on your F-150 short box. The USA-made TracRac SR sliding ladder rack # TH43002XT-508 has a 1250-lb weight rating and includes adjustable load stops. This rack gives you the wide crossbar stance and weight capacity you...

  • Thank you for all of the details regarding your situation! I will do my best to address all of your concerns so that you can go on rides with your sons in the future. You are correct that an adapter will reduce the weight rating of the trailer hitch by 50% but the good news is that it won't reduce the weight rating of your vehicle at all (which is 100 lbs for tongue weight found in the owner's manual). For your 2004 Honda Accord EX you need to use the Curt Trailer Hitch # C11327 as it...

  • Can Bike Rack be Used on Front Mount Hitch of 2019 Toyota Tundra
  • You can use a bike rack in the Draw-Tite Front Mount Trailer Hitch # 65080 although this is a 2" hitch so you would not be able to use a bike rack with 1-1/4" shank; you would need a bike rack for a 2" hitch like the Thule T2 Classic # TH9044 or Yakima HoldUp # Y02443. It is possible that using any bike rack will interfere with sensors that are located on the front grille of your '19 Tundra. We have not tested this specifically but it would make sense this would be the case.

  • How to Convert Yakima HoldUp for 1-1/4 Inch Hitch Receivers to Fit 2 Inch Hitch Receivers
  • The Hitch Adapter # Y8890174 is for the Flipside, DoubleDown, and StickUp bike carriers. It's a direct replacement part for the adapter that was included with those racks. The HoldUp doesn't have a model that fits both a 1-1/4 inch and a 2 inch using an adapter. It has two different models, one for 2 inch hitches, # Y02443, and one for 1-1/4 inch hitches, # Y02445. To convert the HoldUp from a 1-1/4 inch to a 2 inch you can replace the spine using # 8890277. Or to convert it the...

  • Will Yakima or Thule Bike Rack Clear Spare Tire on 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited w/ Draw-Tite Hitch
  • You are definitely correct that the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver # 76104 will give you the best clearance of any trailer hitch receiver for a bike rack on your 2020 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. When we test fit this hitch on a '20 Wrangler Unlimited, the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the edge of the spare tire was 6 inches. I have added a link to a video install of the hitch on a 2020 Wrangler Unlimited for you to check out. In regards to the Yakima and Thule platform...

  • Adapting a Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike Rack with a 1-1/4 Inch Shank for a 2 Inch Hitch
  • The adapter, part # 80300 is likely not a great fit, as it will reduce your hitch's tongue weight by 50% and may make your rack entirely unusable because your hitch won't have the capacity to carry anything else. Instead, I recommend a little more involved process that will preserve the rack's capacity. You can replace your tongue/stinger with part # 8880580. This will swap the 1-1/4 tongue with a 2-inch tongue by reinstalling the tongue. This has the benefit of behaving exactly like...

  • Recommended Bike Rack for 2019 Forester Touring Hitch to Minimize Interference with Back-up Camera
  • The 2019 Subaru Forester Touring has the nice backup camera integrated just above the license plate and close to centered. When using a trailer hitch like the Draw-Tite Max-Frame # 76271 for instance, you will want to account for the hitch pin hole to outermost bumper to ensure you have the clearance needed. For example this hitch pin is 5 inches recessed from the outer bumper so it will not allow folding of the Kuat Transfer # TS02G for example. Because of the location of the camera,...

Please note that when using this smaller tongue you cannot utilize the 2-Bike Add-On # Y02446. You will only be able to carry 2 bikes with the 1-1/4" tongue.

  • Can Yakima HoldUp Bike Rack be Used on a 2017 Subaru Impreza with a Class I Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • I'm afraid your husband is correct to be concerned. The trailer hitch receivers we carry for your Impreza, like the Draw-Tite # DT24959, are all Class I hitches and will need an expander to fit the Yakima HoldUp for 2 Inch Hitch Receivers # Y02443. Using an expander, like the Brophy # HTAD, will give you a 2 inch receiver opening but it will also reduce your hitch's tongue weight capacity by 50 percent. That puts your maximum tongue weight at no more than 100 pounds using the Draw-Tite...

We do offer two platform-style racks with sufficient weight capacity to safely carry your bikes.
