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 Yakima FullTilt is a premium, 5-bike rack packed full of user-friendly perks. The rack has dual arms that offer excellent bike support and fully adjustable anti-sway cradles with ZipStrip ratcheting cradle straps for quick and easy bike loading. The mast tilts away from your vehicle for cargo area access. A built-in cable lock secures your bikes to the rack. And installation is tool free with an integrated anti-rattle device that locks the rack to your vehicle.


Folding Dual Support Arms

Yakima FullTilt dual support arms

The FullTilt's dual arms offer excellent bike support. Your bike's top tubes rest in grooves on the padded arms. The grooves cup your bike frames, and the TPE padding absorbs road shock and minimizes vibrations.


Pull the red TriggerFinger control lever on top of the mast to lower the arms for storage or parking clearance. When you're ready to load bikes again, simply lift the arms back up until they lock into place with an audible click.


Adjustable Anti-Sway Cradles

Yakima FullTilt anti-sway cradles 3-point support

The FullTilt has anti-sway cradles that grip your bike frame at 3 different points - twice along the top bar and once along a downward bar, such as a seat post. This third point of contact helps to prevent sway and bike-to-bike contact.


Yakima FullTilt ratcheting ZipStrips

Ratcheting ZipStrips let you quickly and easily secure your bikes in the cradles. These straps require none of the tugging and stretching that conventional straps require. Simply insert the strap into the buckles on the cradle, and push it down until it's snug around your bike frame. The ZipStrips can be removed quickly by pressing the release levers on the sides of each anti-sway cradle.


Yakima FullTilt adjustable anti-sway cradles

You can adjust the cradles by sliding them along notched tracks in the bottoms of the arms. This allows you to optimize the spacing between your bikes on the rack. Simply lift the cradle's control lever to move it, then lower the lever to lock the cradle into position.


Tool-Free Hitch Connection with SpeedKnob

Yakima FullTilt locking SpeedKnob

The FullTilt has an integrated SpeedKnob and AutoPin that allows tool-free installation. The knob controls an anti-rattle wedge on the shank. Simply turn the knob to tighten the bike rack shank in your hitch receiver. This not only secures the rack to your vehicle, but also reduces noise and movement of the rack in your hitch. The rack works with both 1-1/4" and 2" hitches. To use it in a 1-1/4" hitch, simply remove the red adapter and wedge extension with the included Allen key.


The AutoPin is the rack's spring-loaded hitch pin that pops into place when it enters the side pin hole of your hitch.


Yakima FullTilt AutoPin spring-loaded hitch pin

A handy thumb-release button disengages the AutoPin so you can easily slide the rack out of your hitch. And, since the AutoPin is part of the rack, you won't lose it.


Easy Access to Rear Cargo Area

Yakima FullTilt rear cargo access

The FullTilt's mast tilts so you won't need to remove the rack for rear hatch clearance. And the UpperHand control lever is conveniently located near the top of the mast so you won't need to bend over to reach a lever or pin at the base of the rack.


Complete Security for Bikes and Rack

The FullTilt includes an integrated cable lock that can be threaded through all 4 bikes and locked to the end of the right rack arm with a Same Key System (SKS) cylinder. The braided steel cable is 1/4" thick, and it is coated with vinyl to prevent scratches and scuff marks on your bike frames. When not in use, the cable stores in the rack arm.


Yakima FullTilt locking SpeedKnob

The SpeedKnob also includes a SKS lock cylinder, operated by the same key that opens the cable lock. This lock prevents a would-be thief from being able to loosen the knob and remove the rack from your hitch.


SKS cylinders can be swapped out if you own other Yakima products and want to use the same key to lock them all.


Compact Storage

Yakima FullTilt fold flat storage

The FullTilt easily folds flat for compact storage. Use the TriggerFinger control lever to fold the arms down. Then use the UpperHand lever to fold up the shank.


Yakima FullTilt built-in bottle opener

And the FullTilt includes a built-in, machined-steel bottle opener in case your beverage of choice doesn't have a twist-off cap.

Video Transcript for Yakima FullTilt Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2015 Subaru Forester

Today on our 2015 Subaru Forester we're going to do a test fit of the Yakima FullTilt. This is a folding and tilting four bike rack. It's been designed for use with inch and quarter or two inch hitches. Part Number on it Y02462. If you need an extra cradle set we do have this available in a five bike that Part Number is Y02463. To begin our test fit we'll slide the shank of the rack right into the receiver tube of our hitch. We'll need to slide it in far enough so that the small silver pin appears on our hitch pin hole.

We'll then come right here to rear. Were going to turn the red triangle shaped knob. This engages the anti-rattle device and it will further secure the rack to our vehicle. It's a good idea to lift up and down on it and move it side to side a little bit. This will help us ensure we get all the play out of there that's possible.

As you can see now weve got no movement in our connection point. Weve got a good solid ride ahead for our bike. Lets go over some clearance measurements now. We'll start with ground clearance. It looks like we're going have about 10-1/2 inches worth. At its closet point to the rear of our vehicle our rack's going to be about 3 inches away.

Overall we've added about 8-3/4 of an inch to the length of the Subaru. Right here on the rear of the rack we got a black lever. That's going to allow us to tilt this out and away from our vehicle. As you can see that gives us all the room we need to get into that cargo area. Well now lift back up on the mast until that lever goes into its original position. We can then pull the red lever located here at the top.

That allows us to swing out the dual cradle arms. With the arms in the extended position let's get another measurement; looks like weve now added about 35 inches to the length of the Forester. To remove our zip strips we're going to pinch the two grey levers together and pull them right out. We can then grab our bike, place it up into the rack, and then we'll go through and secure it with our strips. Just like that we're loaded up and ready to hit the road. Now that we've been able to see how the Yakima FullTilt fits onto and works with our 2015 Subaru Forester let's take a look at how that same rack performed when they had it out on the test course.Here on our test course we'll start by going through the shalom. This is going to show us the side to side action. This simulates turning corners or evasively manoeuvring. Once we get to the alternating speed bumps well see the twisting action. This will simulate hitting a curb or a pothole or driving over uneven pavement. Once we get to the full speed bumps we'll see the up and down action. This will be just like driving in and out of a parking lot, parking garage or driveway. .

This is my second purchase from etrailer.com, first one being a set of crossbars for my SUV. I came back because of the level of service and professionalism in the reps that I worked with. They provide quick, knowledgeable and friendly service. The Yakima FullTilt 5 arrived within a week of my order placement and everything was pretty much assembled and ready to go! It took me about 10-15 minutes to install, but only because I spent about 10 minutes reading the instructions to make sure I didn't miss anything. The bike rack literally just needs to be unpackaged, and connected to your hitch. I installed it easily and was on the road. Depending on your bike, you may need to buy a tube adaptor (which I did) in order for your bike to fit properly on the rack. I purchased the Yakima Top tube adapter. I forgot to take pictures but will need to do that next time and update this post. You can't go wrong with the rack and etrailer.com! 262874

Now, let's be honest... squeezing 5 bikes onto a hitch rack is not for the faint of heart. However, this rack does a pretty good job of it. I had to spend some time figuring out which bike needed to go where because the different frame geometries and handle bar types made things more complicated. Once I figured that out I wrote down the order of operations on a sheet of paper and tucked it in the glove box. That has made subsequent loadings easier. The rack is solid when installed and the bikes really don't jostle around much at all. Drawbacks? The integrated cable lock is useless with 5 bikes - it just isn't long enough. It works well for three bikes on the rack. This rack is a beast weight-wise, but given the load it'll carry, I guess that is to be expected. 664171

Review from a similar Yakima FullTilt in Hitch Bike Racks


This took a little bit of time to set up but once done, it carries well - little to no sway. I did under estimate the height once it was on my Expedition since I am only 5 foot tall! I can literally walk under it! Regardless I can easily lift onto and off of the rack. I don't leave it on my truck all the time and so having a second person to help reinstall it on the hitch is helpful but not a requirement. I can do it by myself. I am a 60 year old female in average shape. Highly recommend this carrier. 546115


Comments
I have had this bike carrier for a year now and I still LOVE it! It is easy to take on and off my vehicle as well as getting bikes on and off the carrier. Since I drive an Expedition, it is still a bit high for 5 ft 2 of me, but manageable! You just have to learn how to lift the bike over your head safely. I have also learned faster ways to install by myself and have it down to less than 5 minutes start to finish. There is still little to no sway of the bike once on. Highly recommend for any one!

Review from a similar Yakima FullTilt in Hitch Bike Racks


If you have a new OUTBACK, Subaru has gone out of their way making your job easy carrying equipment, The roof rack is poorly designed and the OEM etrailer receiver is very shallow... MOST bike carriers DO NO fit. I had a Swagman , from etrailer from our RAV4. IT did not fit the shallow receiver. This is the only one I know of that will fit the shallow receivers. Madison was very helpful in the selection of the bike rack and the rack arrived quickly. It fits well as it has an expansion fitting to tighten the fitting in the receiver. etrailer is always helpful and I purchase all car/trailer/sport products fro from for their knowledge and customer service. 253739

Review from a similar Yakima FullTilt in Hitch Bike Racks


I researched for about a week. I wanted to get the best fit, quality and value for my purpose. I ended up deciding between the Yakima and the Thule. Thule seemed the more popular choice but when comparing the two models that had the same features, the Yakima seemed a better value at almost $100 less. The Sales lady on the phone was very helpful and the product was shipped and arrived as promised. I was able to install the bike rack easily and used it the first weekend. Very happy with my choice and with etrailer.com. Thanks. 152675

Review from a similar Yakima FullTilt in Hitch Bike Racks


So I am someone who really likes to look at products and compare and compare some more, before I make a purchase. So, I really put some effort into finding the right product for our family. And I can say that this is one of those that hit a home run with us! This rack is incredibly easy to use and the fold flat ability for storage was the tipping point for the perfect rack for our family. The ease of use is incredible, I think that hardest part is holding the weight of it up while inserting into the trailer hitch hole and that's really not hard at all. You can load/unload bikes fast and easy, the rubber coated arms help keep your bikes from getting scratched. The quick click clamps work great and are adjustable on a slider to accommodate bikes of varying widths. Only thing I think that could use improvement with this is, I would like the integrated/included bike lock cable to be a bit longer and a little thicker but that's just nit picking. It's really a great bike rack that is extremely easy to use, install, remove, and store almost flat when not in use. 585664

Review from a similar Yakima FullTilt in Hitch Bike Racks


Shipping was fast. The rack was easy to set up, including the zip ties. It has some nice features and some I would change. When inserting the rack into the hitch receiver, there is only one peg that extends through the receiver hole. I was thinking that there should be two, one on each side for more stability. The rack was easy to insert into the receiver hitch. The only issue I see is that when tightening the rack into the hitch receiver, the instructions tell you 10 foot pounds of tork. How can one possibly know that by tightening by hand. I tightened the rack inside the hitch to what I thought was enough. It says not to over tighten. The rack was securely inside but there was a little more wobble, not much mind you, but a little more than I expected. I tested it out with my 2019 Trek Marlin 7 and it fit nicely. The bike was held securely without any wobble, it was the rack itself which had a little wobble to it. I wish it came with more than one tie down strap to secure the wheel for other bikes. Overall, I am pleased with the rack and recommend it. 552788

  • Recommended Bike Rack to Carry 4 or 5 Bikes on 2018 BMW X5 With Class II Hitch
    Before getting into specific racks I wanted to mention that if you are using a hitch adapter, they will decrease the tongue weight capacity of your hitch by 50 percent. So if you were using an adapter such as # C45785 that made your Class II 1-1/4" hitch receiver a 2" receiver and you had a 300 lb tongue weight capacity, the adapter would reduce the capacity to 150 lbs, which would be the maximum weight your bike racks and bikes could weigh; there are great racks for a Class II hitch that...

  • Comparison of Yakima Fulltilt 5 and Yakima RidgeBack 5 Bike Racks
    The Yakima FullTilt 5 # Y02463 and the Yakima RidgeBack 5 # Y02459 are very similar. There is the cable lock like you mentioned and there are slight styling differences. Probably the largest difference, which doesn't sound like much, is the usable length of the arms. The RidgeBack has 28 inches of usable space on the arms and the FullTilt has 29 inches. Only 1 inch right? True, but when you're trying to fit 5 bikes onto the rack that can make a big difference. Some would say the...

  • 5-Bike Hitch Rack with Capacity for More Than 150-lbs
    The Yakima FullTilt 5 Bike Rack # Y02463 does have a 150-lb total bike weight limit which is not quite enough for your 5 bikes' combined weight of about 167-lbs. Most hitch racks top out at this same 150-lbs. But the Curt Premium 5 Bike Rack # C18065 stands apart with its 225-lb total weight capacity. The Curt Premium 5 features dual folding arms that taper, which lets them fit more types and sizes of bike frames, reducing the need for adapter bars like # UB01. And the mast tilts for...

The only way I can recommend you use this adapter is how Swagman (and all of the other adapter manufacturers) recommends...

When you have bikes loaded overall height will increase based on the diameter of the bikes' top tubes.

  • Recommendation for a 5-Bike Rack for a 2013 Volvo XC90
    The Yakima DoubleDown Ace 5 bike rack is an older rack which we no longer offer because the Ace series has basically been discontinued. What it comes down to in the current line up is the RidgeBack 5 # Y02459 and the FullTilt 5 # Y02463. When it comes down to it I would go with the RidgeBack # Y02459 because you aren't giving up a whole lot and you are saving a lot of money. The FullTilt has arms that are closer together than the RidgeBack which makes it compatible with slightly more...

  • Distance From Nissan Armada to End of Yakima FullTilt and Kuat NV Bike Racks
    I can help find the distance from your Nissan Armada to the farthest end of the bike racks you referenced though as of January 2018 we have not had a chance to test these racks with an Armada. To find out if either rack will work for you, just measure from the center of the hitch pin hole on your Armada to your garage door so you know the amount of room you have to work with. The Yakima FullTilt 5-bike rack # Y02463 is 14 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the...

  • Hitch Mount Bike Rack for 5 Bikes and a 2015 Chevy Traverse
    All of the 5-bike racks for trailer hitches are hanging style racks but there are some good options. The best rack for your bikes is the Yakima FullTilt, # Y02463. The padding on the arms is designed to absorb road shock to keep the bikes from vibrating. I have linked a video review of this rack for you. I have also included a link to the 5-bike rack options for you. If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar that goes straight across (like a typical men's...

  • Is Using a 5-Bike Rack to Carry 4 Bikes Easier than a 4-Bike Rack
    Five bike racks actually are a great solution for carrying 4 bikes. They give you a bit more space between the bikes which will make loading easier. It also allows you to carry a 5th bike if ever needed. A lot of people swear by getting a hanging rack designed for more bikes than needed for the exact reason you mentioned. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Kuat Bike Frame Adapter Bar #...

  • Recommended Hitch-Mounted Bike Carrier For 5 Bikes
    Trying to use a cargo carrier that can fit 5 bikes would require a very large carrier and I am not aware of any that have the feature to allow you to secure them without running the risk of damaging the bikes in the carrier. For that reason I would use a bike carrier that is designed to carry bikes. The Yakima FullTilt, part # Y02463, is a 5-bike carrier that may work well for you. This carrier has locks that secure the bikes to the rack and the rack to the vehicle as well. This bike...

  • How to Carry 5 Bikes with Alternative Frames on a 2014 Chevrolet Tahoe
    The main factor to consider when deciding if a bike rack will work on your vehicle is the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the outer edge of the bumper. You can then compare that to the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the bike rack. This distance on the Yakima FullTilt 5 Bike Rack part # Y02463 is 10" which should be more than enough for you 2014 Chevrolet Tahoe but you may choose to just do a quick measurement to be sure. The problem...

  • Is it Easier to Load 4 Bikes onto a 5-Bike Carrier of a 2010 Honda Odyssey
    You are right about going with a rack designed to hold 1 more bike than what you need. It will give you additional space between each bike. If it were me I would go with the 5-bike version, # Y02463. The only thing to consider is that with a 5-bike rack the last bike will stick out a little further than on a 4-bike rack. It would not cause the bikes to sway any more than on a 4-bike rack. The rack does have anti-sway cradles to eliminate most of the movement in the bikes. I have...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and 5-Bike Rack for 2019 Honda Odyssey
    Starting with the trailer hitch I recommend going with the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch Receiver # E98855. I like this hitch for your particular application because the receiver won't be tucked too far behind the rear bumper to cause any interference issues between it and a mounted rack. Its matte black finish also adds a unique rugged look that isn't present on other options. It has a 525 pound tongue weight capacity and will be a simple bolt-on installation. I have attached an installation...

  • Bike Adapter Bar With Tension
    Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter Bar # Y02531 and Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar # 64005 will fit loosely on the bike until the bike is placed on a hanging style bike rack # Y02463. These adapters have tension pushing out on them both ways. At that point gravity pulling the bike down, and the bike rack arms holding the adapter bar up, will keep it secure. The Thule Bike Adapter Bar # TH982XT has a telescopic bar that allows you to adjust for different bike sizes and has A locking...

  • Recommended 5 Bike Hitch Mounted Bike Rack for Cargo Access
    The Thule Vertex 5 Bike Rack - 2" Hitches - Tilting has been discontinued but was the the 5 bike option of the similar rack. It is able to tilt away from the rear cargo area for cargo access. There is not a 5 bike option currently available in the swing away option from any of our manufacturers.

  • Can Yakima HangOver 6 Bike Rack Be Used for Kids Bikes
    I reached out to my contact at Yakima and she did say that the HangOver 6 Bike Rack # Y02485 is not going to be a good option to secure kids bikes. Since the carrier is a wheel-mount style and the cradles cannot be individually adjusted, all 6 bikes really need to be pretty similar in size. As you mentioned, the rack also isn't compatible with bikes that don't have the needed suspension forks for the cradle strap to attach to. This is the only 6 bike rack we have available but we do...

  • Can Cradles on Thule Apex XT 5-Bike Rack be Adjusted for Different Sized Bikes
    The cradles on the Thule Apex XT # TH9026XT are actually set at fixed points on the arms which is what the small screw is for. I confirmed this with my contact at Thule. This was actually an upgrade from the original Thule Apex as it helps to keep the cradles in place and from possibly sliding on the arms during transport. The cradles are set apart by 5-1/2" (on center) and you are supposed to alternate which way your bikes are facing. This combination should give you enough clearance for...

  • Recommended 5 Bike Capacity Rack for Rear of a Chevrolet Suburban
    We do offer a few racks that are capable of carrying 5 bikes (see link). All can carry 5 bikes, but the problem is that all bikes have different frame configurations, handle bars and overall sizes. With 5 bikes it is like a puzzle to figure out the configuration that will accept all of the bikes on the rack. Usually after a bit of trial and error you can figure out how to get the bikes loaded on the carrier and would then have to stick to that order each time you load the bikes. I...
