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.

Yakima FullSwing 4 Bike Rack - 2" Hitches - Swing Away - Y02465

Average Customer Rating:  4.5 out of 5 stars   (47 Customer Reviews)

This rack swings away from the rear of your vehicle with bikes loaded for full cargo access. Easy-to-adjust cradles with ratcheting ZipStrip straps hold bikes securely on dual arms. Tool-free installation with locking knob. Includes cable lock.

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.




by:

This is an excellent rack. The hinge and locking mechanisms work very well under heavy loads, allowing the opening of the car's rear door without having to unload or even adjust the bikes on the rack.




by:

This is a great bike rack. It’s amazing how much weight it can hold while swinging out of the way of the lift gate. Because of that, though, it has to be quite heavy, so keep in mind that it is a little bit of a beast to handle. It can be a little tricky to fit four bikes on it, and my small kids’ bikes required Tube Tops to fit, but this might be similar for most racks.




by:

Product is great. Would not recommend using etrailer however. It took over 6 weeks to get my rack. I was not told when I purchased the rack that they did not have it in stock and it would take this long. After about 2 weeks, I called etrailer and they said it would be another week or so, which was clearly inaccurate.


Comments
Aftr a year, I cant say I am a big fan of this rack. It is very difficult to get 4 bikes on it and the swing function has some give in it and makes for a challenging closure at times.

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.

We love it

Don't Buy, purchase a tilt version.

Annoying
and time consuming. You must unscrew the swing arm every time you enter your rear car door. Difficult to close the swing arm with bikes attached (2x adult and 2x kids), due to weight. Love the attachment clips, integrated wire bike lock and hitch lock. DO NOT USE ON TRAVEL TRAILER!!! I had to use on my fifth wheel traveling from Bad Lands to the Smokey Mtns due to a van issue and the receiver bent destroying the bike rack.


Comments
As mentioned in our product description and in the manufacturers instructions, this rack is not intended for use on an RV, camper or a towed trailer.

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!


Comments
A year later hitch is working great. Very happy with product.

Very versatile bike rack. I love the way it swings away from the hatch for easy accessibility into the back of the vehicle.
Would definitely buy more accessories from etrailer.




by:

This bike rack works great. It is beefy, and takes some strength to install or remove, but is rock solid and holds my bikes firmly without damage. The feature I like most is the swing away arm that lets me lower the gate of my truck to access the bed. I have a tonneau cover that keeps the contents of the bed safe while I'm out riding.




by:

This is the best rack I’ve seen or used for being able to have full access to the trunk / back hatch of the vehicle. That said, it is very heavy and an awkward shape so storing it when not in use is no treat if you’re short on space. All in all, probably the best rack I’ve seen.




by:

Heavy duty rack, fit very nicely on my Highlander




by:

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.

Fantastic
Matt E - 07/04/2016


by:

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.




by:

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.




by:

We love our new bike rack and are very happy with our choice. It's super easy to gets biked on and off, the bikes do not bounce or shake when on the rack, and the swing rack allows us to open the back with ease whether the bikes are already loaded up or not. Our only issue with our bike rack is that it's not very easy to remove and reinstall, and thus we leave it on all winter.




by:

This bike rack is very sturdy and good looking. The swing arm works great. I love the hitch and bike lock that comes with the rack. for the high price of this rack, I expect it to be near perfect but it disappointed me on day one and I almost wanted to return it. I think the engineer tested the arms with standard adult bikes (triangle frame) only because I had a really tough time trying to install 2 kids bike and a non standard adult bike frame on the rack. The problem is that the arms are too thick which excludes many bikes, like mines from fitting. The ties are cool but once I remove the bikes, I don't know where I should put them. I actually like ties that are attached to the rack. Maybe it is just a personal preference. if these issues are corrected, it will make this rack even better.




by:

A quality product with heavy construction. Locks to the tow hitch and also has a cable lock for the bikes. Heavy to install but does allow full access to side opening door on my Land Rover defender; should also work well on a Jeep Wrangler or similar. I also needed a 2 inch trailer hitch extender to provide another 9 inches of clearance from the back of the vehicle to clear the door-mounted spare wheel. Bikes without a crossbar need a Yakima Tube Top Adapter or similar to use the device. It obscures the rear license plate, so I also ended up ordering a Yakima License Plate Holder. Also straps to stop wheel spinning during travel are a good idea. So accessories are needed to use the rack but I'm impressed by the quality.




by:

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.




by:

The Yakima FullSwing arrived on time. Took a little while to assemble - cold weather does not help. That said, the rack fit perfectly in my Subaru 2020 Outback (factory installed) 2" hitch. Very little wobble and felt very, very solid with 2 bikes attached. Better (but also much heavier) than my old Thule. Service from etrailer was excellent!




by:

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.




by:

I didn’t know anything about this company until a few days ago. I’d been waiting for the Yakima bike rack to come back in stock on the Yakima website for months now and it never did. I finally started searching for this specific rack on google shopping and found it at eTrailer. I was hesitant to purchase from an unknown third party distributor online but very glad I did. The price was fair, the acceptance of the order was quick, and the shipping and delivery of the item blew me away - crazy fast. I’ve had multiple emails come to me from them thanking me for my order and letting me know to notify them immediately if I had any issues. I still haven’t had a chance to open the box and review the product. But from all accounts thus far, this company is the real deal with superb customer service. Highly recommend.




by:

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.




by:

Great Product. Fits all 4 bikes well and sits securely in hitch.
It is a little heavy so I'd be inclined to buy a single bike carrier for when my wife wants to mount it on the truck by herseld




by:

Very satisfied with the bike rack,and the service was great.




by:

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.

    I confirmed with my contact at Yakima that when their FullSwing # Y02465 rack is fully extended the spacing from the center of the rack's shank to the center of the upright tube will be approximately 36-inches.

  • Trouble Uninstalling the Yakima FullSwing's Auto Pin From the Trailer Hitch
    On Yakima's Full Swing, part # Y02465, the hitch lock free spins if the hitch is not unlocked. This can lead to the pin disengaging from the handle, making it difficult to remove. To engage the pin again, unlock the hitch lock, then press in and rotate the handle until it feels like it grabs something. This can occur in either direction. Then, turn the handle about three more times. From here, rotate the handle to the left to disengage the auto pin and remove the rack from the vehicle.

The foot of the carrier will be and it will be 6-1/2 inches back from the center of the hitch pin hole.

    On your 2003 Toyota Rav4, you will need to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole to the furthest point on the rear of the vehicle, in this case, the spare tire. If that measurement is greater than 6-1/2 inches, the 4 Yakima Full Swing 4 Bike Rack, # Y02465, will not fit. On some hitch installations we have done on the RAV4, we have come up with 4 to 7 inches needed to clear the spare tire but you will need to measure your RAV4 to be certain.

  • Why Does Yakima FullSwing Bike Carrier Swing To The Passenger Side Of Vehicle
    The swing action of the Yakima FullSwing, part # Y02465 is designed to swing open to the passenger side of the vehicle.

    Four-bike racks are only going to have cradles to hold 4 bikes with the exception of the Yakima FullSwing # Y02465; which doesn't have cradles per se though still has straps and anti-sway cages to hold just 4 bikes though it would be your best bet. It is hard enough some times to get 4 bikes on a 4-bike rack.

    The automatic (AutoPin) hitch pin on the Yakima FullSwing bike rack # Y02465 is basically a fail safe device.

Removing the AutoPin will void the bike rack warranty so I cannot recommend taking it out. There also would not be a way to use a regular hitch pin because the anti-rattle mechanism would be in the way...

  • How To Determine If Yakima Fullswing Bike Rack Will Clear Tailgate of Truck When Swung Out
    I spoke with my contact at Yakima and he gave me the dimension you asked for. He said that from the top of the shank of the Yakima FullSwing part # Y02465 to the top of the swingarm measures 8-1/2 inches. So basically you would need to measure from the top of your hitch opening up 8-1/2 inches to determine if your tailgate would be able to fold down without hitting the bike rack when it is swung out.

  • What Is The Difference Between Class II And Class III Bike Racks?
    The difference between a class II and class III bike rack is the trailer hitch receiver size it fits into. Many bike racks allow for 1-1/4 inch receivers (class I or class II) as well as 2 inch receivers (class III, IV, or V), but some will only fit one or the other. For instance, the Yakima FullSwing 4 Bike Rack - 2" Hitches - Swinging # Y02465 will only fit 2 inch receivers like Class III, IV, or V. The larger shank on the 2 inch models will allow for more bikes and greater weight...

  • Hitch Mounted Bike Rack to Carry 4 Bikes and Allow Access to Rear Cargo Area on a 2006 Honda CR-V
    It's not very likely any hanging bike rack will tilt far enough away from a 2006 Honda CR-V to access the rear cargo area. For a 4-bike rack to allow rear cargo access you'll need a swinging rack like the Yakima FullSwing # Y02465. It has the ability to swing completely out of the way to allow you access to the rear of the CR-V. The FullSwing can carry up to 4 bikes and includes a locking hitch pin to secure it to the Honda.

  • Comparing the Yakima FullSwing with the Thule Apex Swing
    The Thule Apex Swing 4 Bike Rack (discontinued), and the Yakima FullSwing 4 Bike Rack - 2" Hitches - Swinging, # Y02465, are both very nice bike racks. I haven't heard any issues with either one regarding a snug fit. Both have quick install pins and anti-rattle integrated with a knob. The systems work differently, but we haven't had any issues with any of our test fits including the road handling tests. Both systems have provided a secure connection at the hitch receiver. If I were...

  • 4 Bike Rack Recommendation for 2016 Lexus GX460 and 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
    The Yakima Fullswing part # Y02465 is going to be your best option for a bike rack that will clear the rear spare tire and give you full rear cargo area access with bikes loaded. You will need to take one measurement though. You will need to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole out to the furthest point out on the spare. If that distance is less than 15 inches then the bike rack will clear the spare. This rack has one of the largest clearance here so it would be your best option...

  • Does the Yakima FullSwing 4 Bike Rack Include a Receiver Lock
    Yes, the Yakima FullSwing 4Bike Rack, # Y02465, does include a lock that will secure the rack to your vehicle's trailer hitch. The lock on the Yakima FullSwing is integrated in to the orange anti-rattle knob that is located at the bottom of the rack. When you install the bike rack into your trailer hitch, you will turn the anti-rattle device knob until the rack is secured in the hitch. The Yakima FullSwing will include a set of keys that will fit the lock in the knob. Once you use the...

  • Will Yakima FullSwing Fit Factory Toyota Trailer Hitch
    We haven't tested the Yakima FullSwing 4-Bike Rack # Y02465 specifically on a 2017 Toyota Highlander with a factory OEM hitch but I don't foresee any issues with the depth. If you take a look at the accompanying cutout, you can see the measurement you can take from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the hitch to find out. If that measurement is at least 3" you can use the Yakima FullSwing 4-Bike Rack # Y02465. I have added links to video reviews of this rack for you to check...

  • Hitch Adapter For A Four Bike Platform Carrier On An RV To Clear Vehicle When Turning
    With any 4 bike platform rack and a flat towed vehicle you are going to have clearance issues. Adding a raised shank is not going to give you enough clearance to get above the hood of your vehicle when making turns. I recommend putting the Yakima FullSwing 4 Bike Rack - 2" Hitches - Swinging Item # Y02465 on the back of the towed vehicle. This rack is designed for flat towed vehicles. Has 160lb weigh capacity and has a swing away feature to give you access to the truck or hatch of the vehicle...
