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

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.


Yakima FullSwing allows full rear cargo access with bikes loaded

The Yakima FullSwing is a premium, 4-bike rack packed full of user-friendly perks. The swing-away mast provides convenient access to your vehicle's rear cargo area - even with bikes loaded. Folding dual arms with adjustable anti-sway cradles support your bikes, while ratcheting ZipStrip straps keep them in place. 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.


Full Access to Rear Cargo Area

Yakima FullSwing rear cargo area access

The FullSwing has a hinged arm in the base that lets you swing the rack away from the rear of your vehicle with your bikes still loaded. This eliminates the need to unload the bikes or remove the rack to get to your stowed cargo. To open the hinged arm, simply loosen the T-bolt and pull the spring-loaded pin. Then swing the rack out away from the rear of your vehicle. The arm will lock into place once it's fully extended so your hands are free to open your hatch and remove cargo.


Yakima FullSwing swing-away arm

To close the rack, press the hinge release lever and pull the spring-loaded pin to swing the mast back into position. The spring-loaded pin will click when you've fully closed the rack. Tighten the T-bolt to completely secure the rack in place.


Tool-Free Installation with SpeedKnob and AutoPin

Yakima FullSwing tool-free SpeedKnob and AutoPin

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


Yakima FullSwing with 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.


Folding Dual Support Arms

Yakima FullSwing dual support arms

The FullSwing'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 FullSwing anti-sway cradles 3-point support

The FullSwing 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 prevents sway and bike-to-bike contact.


Yakima FullSwing 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 FullSwing 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.


Complete Security for Bikes and Rack

Yakima FullSwing integrated cable lock

The FullSwing includes an integrated cable lock that can be threaded through all 4 bikes and locked into 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 FullSwing 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.


Yakima FullSwing built-in bottle opener

And the FullSwing 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 FullSwing Hitch Bike Rack Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Yakima full-swing, four bike rack for two inch hitches. Part number Y zero two four six five. The Yakima full swing is great for minivans and SUVs to gain full access to your rear hatch without having to remove the bikes. It swings out with just a few simple steps. First come back here, undo the big black lever. Make sure it's loosened up.

Then we can pull up on the red pin. It's going to allow our center mast to start swinging out so we can push it out. We'll want to be sure to reengage the pin in the arm here. Then we can swing it the rest of the way out, and then we'll want to engage the pin here. As you can see, we've got plenty of room to remove any cargo, gear, groceries, anything we might have with us on our trip. To swing it back in, push down on the button here.

Then it will allow it to start rotating in. We can pull up on the pin here to get it to swing out and then we can finish bringing it back in. We can just push it back in place to reengage that pin. Once that's done, we'll tighten up our black lever. The dual arms are going to provide great support for our four bikes. They're rubber coated to help ensure that our bikes don't get scratched up.

They also feature a hundred and sixty pound weight capacity. The cradles themselves secure our bikes in three spots. We have two cradles for our top tube. The anti-sway cradle is going to help prevent bike to bike contact. It too has a rubber coating.

They are adjustable along the dual arms. Once we've got them set, the anti-sway cradle raises up, locks it in position. The other cradle has a locking lever that locks it. All of the cradles do feature zip strips which are easy to install and remove. For added security, the full-swing does offer an integrated cable lock which comes out from the back of the center mast and plugs in here at the end of the arm. Don't forget Yakima offers the signature bottle opener so that you can have a drink with your buds at the end of a hard ride. The dual arms do have the ability to fold down for compact storage. Pull up on the lever, rotate it down until it snaps in. Now this is ideal for parallel parking or pulling into your garage. The auto pin makes it a tool free installation, while the speed knob reduces play and rattle. The speed knob is lockable and it uses the same key as the integrated cable lock. To give you an idea if this bike rack is for you, we'll go ahead and give you some measurements. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the front of the arms when folded down measures nineteen and a half inches. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the foot of the carrier is nine inches. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the upright mast measures fifteen inches. The distance between the arms, outside cradle to outside cradle measures twelve and a half inches. The bike rack is made out of a sturdy steel construction with a chip resistant, high gloss, black powder coat finish. It features a limited life-time warranty. Now that we've got all of the features, I'll go ahead and show you how to get it installed. Now the bike rack weighs fifty-six pounds so you may need to get an extra set of hands. I'm going to go ahead and lift it up and set it into place. I'm going to rest it on my receiver tube. Then I'm going to take my hand and hold this little tab in place so I can engage my auto pin. We're just going to push that in place where our pin hole is until it snaps in. To release it, you can use this button right here, and then you can remove it from the receiver tube. For now, we'll just slide it in like so. Then we'll come back here to our speed knob. We're going to turn that clockwise to tighten up. By doing so it's going to reduce a lot of play and rattle within our receiver tube and our bike rack. While I'm tightening it up, I'm just kind of lifting up on the bike rack just to make it a little bit easier to tighten up. Now in preparation for loading up our bikes, we'll need to raise up the dual arms. We can do that by simply lifting up on the red lever on top, folding up until it snaps into place. Now we can remove our zip strips. To do so, we could just squeeze the two grey tabs on either side and then they come on out. Now if you we're just transporting one bike, it could help to make sure those zip strips are all the way down. It can just help assist you in loading up your bike over the dual arms. You can also just fold that anti-sway cradle back around. Now it's recommended that you put the heaviest bike on first. We're going to come up over our dual arms, work our way to the back. Now it's important to line up this cradle here with our seat post tube here. This is going to be our anti-sway cradle. Then we can just take our zip strips, go right over the top of the tube, kind of push down, and pull from the underside to get it to stay in place. I've gone ahead and loaded up the rest of the bikes. Some bikes such as women's, children's, and bikes inaudible 00:06:01 turn of frame styles may require the use of a bike adapter bar to sit evenly within the cradles. Yakima makes one and that's part number Y zero two five three one. Now the only think left to do is run our cable lock, and then we're ready to hit the road. We can find that right behind the center mast here. Just go ahead and pull it all the way out. We're going to run it underneath our top tube. Once we get to our last bike, we're actually going to go over the top tube and then plug it into the arm here. Once we've got it plugged in, we can lock it up. Now we'll take it out on our test course and see how it performs. Let's first start with our slalom. This is going to show side to side action such as going around corners or evasive maneuvering. Then on to our alternating speed bumps. This is going to show a twisting action such as going over pot holes or uneven pavement. Then finally on to our solid speed bumps. This is going to show an up and down action such as pulling in and out of a driveway or out of a parking lot. That's going to complete our look at the Yakima full-swing, four bike rack for two inch hitches, part number Y zero two four six five.

Bike rack is extremely sturdy. Comes assembled and took less than 5 minutes to install. Works and looks great on the pickup truck. Unit swings aside to allow bed to be fully accessed even with 4 bikes mounted. Lock into the trailer hitch prevents removal which was the main reason for purchase over competitive Thule unit which lacks such a locking mechanism. Very pleased with purchase. etrailer was a breeze to do business with. Unit arrived within 2 days. I did place order over phone, rather than internet. Was told that this would expedite shipping. 278832

One of the better product buys I've ever made. Solidly built! No problem hauling 4 bikes and the swing out feature makes it easy to access the bed of my pickup. 310095

The Good: Solid and well-engineered, swing mechanism works as advertised, easy to strap on bikes, full 2" tongue insert, holds 4 bikes when needed. The Bad: Too heavy/cumbersome to conveniently install, remove on a regular basis. Mast is 6-8" too tall so that it blocks your view out the back window. Bikes are not safe from theft when parked because entire mast is easily removable, bikes & all, by 2 average guys (I had a ring welded to the mast so I can cable the mast to my hitch -- Yakima should have done this). Overall: etrailer was a good outfit to work with. However, while this rack is technically functional, it is a beast. I would not buy the swing mechanism again -- I have seen tilt-down and other styles that also allow rear SUV door access, but aren't nearly as bulky/heavy. I needed a 3 bike solution, but I also need something less clunky to deal with on a regular basis since I don't leave my rack on all the time. I regret buying this model. 247130

I bought this hitch carrier to bring 4 bikes on a 1200 mile round trip for a 2 week vacation. I used to spend more to rent bikes than the cost of the hitch. I purchased this during a Labor Day sale last year thinking if I used it once it would pay for itself. I spent the xtra $$ on the swing feature and am glad I did as it allowed me to load bikes whenever I needed and get to the rear of our SUV at any time. Works flawlessly! I have a THULE roof carrier (love it) but when I went to Dicks to check out the THULE ‘s securing rubber ties, I realized they were pretty hard to secure whereas the Yakima zip ties are easy. Hitch lock was easy and built in bike lock made made everything secure. Would buy again, recommend to anyone! 560444

Seems like a great product based on the specs and the positive reviews definitely swayed me. But, my experience was only 3 stars. Here's what I found. I have a 2" hitch provided and installed by U-Haul on our 2007 Odyssey, so no flimsy 1" adapter. This thing still moves around a great deal. No failures, but just be prepared when you first mount bikes, go over bumps, etc. LOTS of surface rust after just a year of use where the connecting rod fits into the hitch; took 30+ minutes to work it free last time I took it off the car. We tend to leave it on because we use it often and it is heavy and beastly to put on. Consider some sort of release agent before installation or removal. Operation was fairly straight forward once I got the hang of it. However, over time, certain functions started to fail or become difficult. The key lock is a bit tricky to engage even out of the box, but became very difficult to turn the longer it has been in use. After 10 years, OK. After 1 year, not so much. The locking pin on the arm also started to come out of alignment with the hole in the arm (not much, but enough, has me wondering about the years to come) and required quite a bit of additional manipulation to get it to engage. But, my largest criticism is bike management. We have two adult comfort / mtn bikes, one kid bike and a tag-along. We bought two of the cross bar attacher thingies. No dice. My own men's bike was easy to get on and always went on first per instructions. Next was my wife's, a Trek with a pretty standard triangular frame. TIGHT, TIGHT fit to get that thing on and not the ideal placement to make it work. Our oldest son's bike, another Trek, wouldn't go; could only get one arm through. The cross bar adapter was NO help. What a waste of money, those. Can't use them on anything. They are very limited in their range of use. To get it on, I had to have the bike cocked at about 60 degrees. The crazy fit of bikes #2 and #3 eliminated any chance of getting that tag-along on it even though it is much smaller than a bike. Into the trunk it went, defeating the whole point of a 4-bike carrier. The detachable tie-downs seem like a great idea, but they sure are easy to drop when wrestling a bike, or lose OR STEAL. Where are you going to put them, or the extras, when not in use? Something else to figure out and deal with. The sliding lock downs? Again, another seeming good idea, but after a year, they become very difficult to slide back and forth. I have really had to wrench on them in certain cases to get them to move at all. Can't be good long term and very aggravating since it is supposed to be a slick feature. Why not just leave them in place once you figure out the best spot? Well, there's the principle of it, but there is also this thing called my kids' friends! Yeah, play dates or whatever. Requires a total rework. Not fun. Two adult bikes was very workable even if you couldn't move lock downs...just used the next ones over. And the swing out feature was, in general, very useful. Maybe it's an impossible task, a great 4-bike rack, I dunno. Maybe it's me. But, maybe it's the rack. If you can, try YOUR bikes before buying. Maybe a friend has one already? Maybe it requires some kind of care and feeding not mentioned anywhere. I wouldn't say don't buy it, but just be aware of what you're getting into. Talk to owners of this and other types and brands to see what their use issues might be. 292332

It is a great bike rack. It is very heavy so taking it off and putting it on is a bit difficult, but that is Ok, since it is such a well built, sturdy product. It is also a bit of a challenge to actually get 4 bikes on as designed, but you can make it work with a bit of adjusting. 413844

It fits my minivan well (after have an aftermarket hitch installed) and permits us to put all camping gear for our family of 4 and bikes (& 4 people) in one vehicle. That is awesome! It does NOT permit easy access to the "trunk" which is the reason we paid more for this model. In retrospect, I would save money and get the model without rear access as we don't have it now. 391834

Great Bike Rack. Swing feature is awesome, well worth the money. Nice additional features such as lock cable and snapping straps. Super easy to use and easy to install. Only downfall is the rack is on the heavy side but not a deal breaker. 384975

The bikes swing a little more than I expected them to. I had to use bungie cords to keep the bikes from swinging into each other. It is still a good rack. 308703

Installation today was pretty straight forward. We had no problems. It may require two people to install the bike rack onto the hitch because it is pretty heavy. But, as a 41 yo woman I was able to attach the bike rack to the hitch by myself. We haven't used it yet to transport our bikes, but I imagine that will be seamless too. 278438

A really nice looking bike rack. It is a bit of a beast in terms of size, but my wife was itching to use it and was able to get it on the truck no problem without me. Used it a couple times now and all features work nicely. It does appear that the rubber arms scuff pretty easily and have the potential to wear down eventually... something I will watch for. The locking cable is nice, but not that big a deterrent if someone really wants your bikes. I've had bikes stolen with larger cables that were cut. That said, probably less likely to happen during the day. Got a sweet deal from etrailer. 255702

I drive a 2009 Toyota Sienna. I did a lot of research online and even called around to U-Haul and a few of the car dealerships to price installation for a hitch receiver and wiring harness. If you are even semi-handy then do it yourself!! I had to clean out the holes on the frame for the bolts for a while but once they were clean the hitch went on without a "hitch" :) The wiring harness was super easy to install as well. Communication and shipping through etrailer was flawless. We just came back from a road trip with the Yakima bike trailer. It worked awesome! I fit 4 bikes on with ease. The securing straps are heavy duty. I would also recommend this product. The price through etrailer was the same as anywhere else I could find it online. 221516

Sturdy bike rack, performed as advertised. It is heavy, but otherwise easy to install an operate. We use it for 3 kid's bikes, which are a challenge because of their size & configuration, but were able to make it work, even without adapter bars. It would be a challenge to mount 4 bikes. 210506

The product (FullSwing) is rock solid. My favorite feature beside the stability is the integrated lock. I'm not sure when I'll use the beer opener but that is cool also. I can't say enough about eTrailer. I considered a purchase through anazon of course, but the product was not in stock. Using eTrailer was a great decision. I received the product in two days with normal shipping, just in time for a trip the next day. 208792

  • Hanging Bike Rack Recommendation that Allows Full Access to Rear Cargo Door
  • While there is a similar option I can offer you that will work well you can't tilt a hanging bike rack down with bikes loaded. The bike cradles are not designed to hold a bike at that angle plus the rack would be very heavy and difficult to lower and raise. Instead the best option is a Yakima FullSwing part # Y02465. This bike rack allows you to swing the bikes out and away from the rear of the vehicle with the bikes loaded so that you get full access to the rear cargo area. I attached...

When we installed this hitch on a 2017 Subaru Forester, see video link, it measured 13-3/4 inches from the ground to the top of the receiver opening. So to the bottom of the receiver that distance would be approximately 11-1/2 inches. The other Class III option is Curt hitch # C13144. When we installed it the distance from...

  • Recommended 2-Inch Class III Hitch to Replace 1-1/4-Inch Factory Hitch on 2018 Subaru Outback
  • The guidance you received about not using a 2-inch hitch on your Outback would apply if you were towing a trailer. Most 4-cylinder vehicles are generally not as towing-friendly as those with a V6 or larger engine. While this caution makes sense for towing applications it dos not really apply for use with a hitch-mounted bike rack. You are correct that Subaru's OEM hitches are not great matches for accessory applications like bike or cargo carrier use, and for the reason you stated, and...

  • Compatibility Of Swing Away Hitch Bike Rack With Cargo Basket That Has Extender
  • The Curt Dual 2" Receiver Tube Adapter, 8" Extension # D-192 will reduce your trailer hitch receivers tongue weight capacity by 50%. The swing away adapters like # 8890313 will not work prior to the adapter based on design. So you will need to make sure you have the clearance for the adapter height. The 48x32 Lets Go Aero GearCage FP4 Slide-Out Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches - Steel - 300 lbs # H01380 or similar will give you the 17 inches of clearance difference when extended. For...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack For 2019 Acura MDX
  • We do have hitches that fit the 2019 Acura MDX but the full size spare tire does need to be removed. The P245/50R20 wheel has a 20 inch diameter and all of the hitches available for your vehicle only install with 18 inch or smaller wheel. I recommend the Curt Class III Hitch part # C13146 because it provides the most ground clearance when carrying a bike rack on the Acura. You have about 14-1/2 inches from the top of the hitch receiver tube to the ground. It is a custom fit hitch...

  • How To Carry Bikes on a 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with Third Brake Light and Rear Camera
  • The Hollywood Racks SR1 2-Bike Carrier part # HRSR1 will fit your 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara with a 255/75-18 Bridgestone Dueler A/T spare tire however, the third brake light would need to be removed as it would interfere with the rear support bar. If you do not want to remove the third brake light then I recommend the Hollywood Racks SR2 2-Bike Carrier part # HRSR2 however, the back up camera would need to be removed as it would interfere with the mounting bracket for the carrier.

  • Best Bike Rack for 2018 Toyota RAV4
  • The best bike rack for your 2018 Toyota RAV4 will be a hitch-mounted option that allows you to open the rear hatch without having to unload the bikes. For this I highly recommend the Yakima FullSwing 4 Bike Rack # Y02464 as long as you have a 2 inch hitch receiver installed. 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. It can handle up to 4 bikes...

  • Hitch & Bike Rack Recommendations for 2017 Acura RDX AWD SUV
  • Between the Curt # C13130 and the Draw-Tite # 75784 2-inch Class III hitches I recommend the Draw-Tite since it does not require you to use a support strap # 18050 as the Curt does, and since its 400-lb tongue weight rating is more than adequate for any bike rack. Plus it costs less! As for hitch bike carriers to use with this hitch, you can use any compatible 2-inch Class III rack that has enough clearance to avoid contact with the back of the RDX. When we installed this hitch on a...

  • Trailer Hitch for 2014 Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet for Use with Hitch Bike Rack
  • For the 2014 Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet convertible we do have a hitch option from Curt, their 2-inch Class III model # 13577. This hitch comes with all required mounting hardware and is a no-drill installation. A hitch installation article and video are linked to help you with the install. With this hitch installed you can use a 2-inch hanging or platform bike rack of up to 5-bike capacity, thanks the to hitch's substantial 400-lb tongue weight (TW) rating. TW is downward force on...

  • How Much Clearence Is There When Curt Hitch # C13043 Is Installed With Yakima FullSwing Bike Rack
  • The Yakima FullSwing 4 Bike Rack # Y02465 is 1-1/2" from the hitch pin hole and the back of the shank. I went out to our warehouse to measure how far the ends of the receivers are from the hitch pin holes. The Curt # C13043 measures 2-1/2 inches from the center of the rear mounting holes to the back of the receiver (towards the spare tire). When the FullSwing 4 Bike Rack # Y02465 is inserted inside the Curt # C13043, it will not stick out the back of the hitch. In fact you will have...

  • Can Rightline Gear Cargo Hatch Saddlebag RL100B90 Install on Vehicle with Roofline Spoiler
  • The roofline spoiler on your 2016 Nissan Rogue (thank you for the photo!) is not intended to bear any weight so if you wish to attach the Rightline Gear Cargo Hatch Saddlebag # RL100B90 you will need to connect the straps to your raised roof side rails and then around the sides of the spoiler to avoid placing weight/stress on it. You also need to make sure you have at least 40-inches of space between the two tail lights so that they are not blocked. This bag has no security provisions...

  • Will EcoHitch Trailer Hitch Fit a 2016 Kia Sorento with Full Size Spare
  • I spoke with my contact at EcoHtch and they said that since they only test fit the trailer hitch # 306-X7320 with the OEM spare tire (donut) they wouldn't be able to confirm if it will fit the larger tire that you have. The other trailer hitches, like the etrailer.com # E98843, have more of a width issue but since the EcoHitch has a higher crossmember I believe that the larger diameter of your spare will be an issue. If you like the hidden look of the EcoHitch and you still have your...

  • Should Trailer Hitch for Bike Rack be Installed on a 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid Limited
  • While I can't really override what your dealer said in regards to installing a trailer hitch on your 2018 Chrysler Pacifica, I can say that you are protected by the Federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. The Act states that if something breaks on your vehicle and you take it in for warranty repair, the dealer must honor your warranty unless whatever modifications you have added to your vehicle actually caused the problem in question.  I do recommend installing the Curt 2" Trailer Hitch...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack to Carry 4 Bikes with a 2018 Honda CR-V
  • Unless you have the Touring model of the 2018 Honda CR-V I recommend using the etrailer.com Trailer Hitch # e98848 because it has the 2" receiver needed for carrying 4 bikes and it gives you a really clean-looking installation. If you do have the Touring with the Hands-Free Liftgate then you will want to use the Draw-Tite # 76128 instead as it is the only 2" trailer hitch that doesn't get in the way of the sensors. Then for a bike rack I recommend the Yakima FullSwing # Y02465 because...

  • Transporting 4 Bikes on Hitch Rack on 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon 2.5i
  • The factory 1-1/4-inch hitch on your 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon is a light-duty Class I type that can handle the load of only two bikes. Even if a higher-capacity rack fits the hitch, such as the Curt # C18030, you are still limited by the Class I hitch to only two bikes. You will want to install a much sturdier 2-inch Class III hitch to allow use of a 4-bike hitch rack. Of the three options shown on the linked page I suggest the Draw-Tite # 75673 for its combination of high tongue weight...

  • Replacement Part for Damaged Anti-Rattle Wedge on Yakima FullSwing Bike Rack
  • It sounds like maybe your anti-rattle wedge was stripped or damaged on your rack, especially if your able to remove it from the rack completely. The correct replacement part for this is the # 8880508. This is a replacement SpeedKnob and wedge for the Yakima FullSwing, SwingDaddy, RidgeBack, or FullTilt bike racks. It comes with a control key so that you can remove the lock core from your previous rack and insert it in here. I have linked this replacement product to this page for...

  • Hitch Bike Rack Recommendation for Carrying Two 60 lb E Bikes
  • I have a hitch rack that will carry two e-bikes but the Yakima FullSwing part # Y02465 is not rated for that much weight per bike. Instead you would need a bike rack that is designed specifically for carrying the heavier e-bikes. The Hollywood Rack part # HR1450Z-E will carry your bikes well so it would be our best recommendation.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for a Bike Rack on a 2016 Acura RDX
  • We always recommend using a trailer hitch with a 2" receiver over the 1-1/4" size because they have higher weight ratings and because you can use a wider variety of bike racks. Technically since the 1-1/4" is smaller it will be less noticeable but realistically there isn't that big of a visual difference between the 2 sizes. I recommend using the Curt Class III Trailer Hitch # C13130 for your 2016 Acura RDX which gives you that 2" receiver plus it installs in such a way that only the receiver...

  • Recommended Swing Away Bike Rack For 4 Adult Bikes On Class III Hitch Receiver
  • For the strongest and best bike rack for carrying 4 adult bikes, I recommend using a bike rack with a 2 inch shaft. Yes, this limits your ability to use with a 1-1/4 inch receiver, but it does give you additional strength for a long road trip. For your application, I recommend the Yakima FullSwing 4 Bike Rack - 2" Hitches - Swinging # Y02465. This rack is rated for up to 160 lbs versus the 140 lbs of the Thule racks or the 150 lbs of the SwingDaddy. It has the built in anti-rattle...

  • Bike Rack for 2013 Toyota Highlander That Allows Rear Hatch Access
  • The Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 3 Bike Rack # HRF2-3 is a confirmed fit on your 2013 Toyota Highlander and it works well on many similar vehicles that have a roofline spoiler. These spoilers are not meant to bear any weight or pressure and so that straps of most trunk-mount bike racks which would contact the spoiler would be an issue. This rack poses no such concern thanks to its unique arched design that prevent strap-to-spoiler contact. However, any trunk-mount type bike rack brings...

You can refer to the photo I prepared for you to see this dimension illustrated. You can then compare it to your Ford Explorer or any other vehicle on which you'd like to use either of these racks. This rack extension provides more than enough clearance for the vast majority of...
