Padded, Ratcheting Hooks

Swagman Chinook 2-Bike Carrier

The Chinook's mast has a pair of ratcheting hooks that hold your bikes securely by the top tube. And because they move independently, you can carry bikes of different shapes and sizes. The hooks have soft padding that won't scratch or scuff your bike's paint.

Sliding Wheel Cradles

Adjustable Wheel Trays

The wheel cradles slide to accommodate bikes with different wheelbases. Hand knobs let you release the cradles to slide along the bike tray and adjust for your specific bike lengths. Each cradle has a ratcheting strap so you can secure your bikes' wheels during transport. If you need to carry fat bikes, there are cradles (sold separately) that let you carry bikes with tires up to 5" wide.

Tilting, Folding Design

Fold ForwardFold Up For Storage

A spring-loaded release lever in the base of the rack lets you tilt the rack down with bikes loaded for cargo area access. You can also use that same lever to fold the rack up against your vehicle for storage. A second spring-loaded release lever lets you fold the mast down so you can fold the rack up.

Complete Security

Threaded Locking Hitch PinThreaded Locking Hitch Pin

The ratcheting hooks have lock cores in the release buttons so you can secure your bikes to the rack. Simply slide the hooks over your bikes' top tubes until they click and lock them in place. There is also a keyed-alike locking hitch pin that secures the rack to your vehicle. The hitch pin works with a built-in anti-wobble device in the shank to eliminate rattle in the hitch receiver during transport.

Removable Adapter Sleeve

Adapter Sleeve

The rack has a removable aluminum sleeve that lets you convert the rack for use in 1-1/4" hitches.

The install was super easy following along with the video. The Chinook is excellent quality. A year later and lots of local trips and two trips from PA to Florida and the rack is still in perfect condition. The key for us is IT DOESN'T RATTLE ON THE HIGHWAY! If I had to listen to 14 hours of rattling on I95 the bikes and rack would have been on the side of the highway. Exceptional value and quality!

STILL NO RATTLE! We use it all the time and it is as great as the first day we used it!

Love my new Swagman Chinook 2-bike rack! Impressive packaging to protect product for shipping. Assembled easily and transports my bike beautifully. I appreciate easy adjustments, multi-folding features, sturdy design and locks: 1) from rack to car receiver and 2) locking bike(s) onto rack.

Working great a year later. I’ve used it many times to transfer my bike and, multiple times to transport 2 bikes. Very sturdy. In generally keep the rack on the car so the folding feature is great. I have also used the tip away feature to open the back gate of my Ford Escape when the bikes are on the rack. I don’t notice any rust developing so far. I’m very happy with this purchase.

We bought the Swagman Chinook Hitch Bike Rack a year ago for our 2017 Subaru Forester. We had to have a hitch installed and the rack attached. It was too heavy for us to do it ourselves. But we needed an easier option than lifting our bikes onto the hanging rack we had. We realized we weren't riding as much as we wanted because it was such a hassle to get the bikes up and on the rack. This platform solved that problem, and now we ride several times a week. It is so much easier to handle the bikes now. We live in a high traffic, hilly area so we aren't comfortable riding on city streets. But now we can easily load the bikes and get to greenways and trails where we can safely ride. Great solution! We have talked with other older couples who have racks similar to our old hanging rack. They express frustration. But they also say adding a hitch + this Chinook rack is "too expensive". Yes, it does cost. But hey, our health--we're in our mid-70's--is worth everything, and if this means we ride more, it's money well spent. It too awhile to learn the steps when loading and unloading but now it takes only minutes. Thanks, Swagman!

We still ride, still use our Swagman Chinook Hitch Bike Rack, and still think its the best! A great investment. We leave it on all the time and its been through all kinds of weather. Still works great. I added fingernail polish to mark where the wheel trays go as they can get loose and move around when bikes are not on them makes it a lot easier to make sure theyre in the right place before loading. Its frustrating to lift a bike and then have the wheel trays not be in the right place. Minor issue, easily solved.

I ordered the Swagman Chinook 2 Bike Platform Rack on line from etrailer and so far have been very satisfied. The bike rack was delivered in less than a week. Unpacking the rack and assembly was fairly straightforward. I have read some reviews that complained the assembly instructions were a bit vague. I didn't have a problem but can see where others without a mechanical background get confused.

The rack is very sturdy, but there is some side to side play in the tilt mechanism. I'm not sure this can be avoided with a rack that folds down. Installing the Curt trunk stabilizing strap takes most of the sway out of the rack.

Installation is fairly easy and quick. It takes me 6 - 7 minutes to install the back on my hitch, and to install the bike and be ready to drive away. That seems reasonable to me. So far I've only loaded 1 bike.

I've included pictures of my installation on a 2014 Mercedes Benz E350 sedan. Clearance between the bikes, the rack and the car are good. With the bike loaded in the inside, most forward position, I have 6" clearance between the pedal and the bumper. With the bike removed, the center support folded flat and the rack folded up in the storage position, I have 4" clearance between the closest part of the bike rack (the fold down hinge assembly) and the back bumper of the car.

I am able to open the trunk of the car without removing the bikes or using the tilt feature, but I do have to remove the stabilizing strap first.

Overall, I'm very pleased with the bike rack and think it will serve me much better than my old strap on rack. Since the weather has been cool since getting the bike carrier, I haven't taken any long trips to give it a real workout.

Im still very pleased with the bike rack. Have taken several 200 mile trips with 2 bikes and am very satisfied.
Capt J - 03/21/2018


Good for transporting a range of bikes with different tire widths and wheel sizes (29er mountain bike, 27.5 mountain bike, fat bike, etc.). Have now had it for 2000+ miles. It does wobble and bounce a little, especially on bumpy roads, and the mechanism to unfold the rack tray is a little sticky at times. But otherwise a good value.

One year later, Im moving on to a better rack. The Swagman Chinook was fine, but the constant adjusting of the wheel trays to fit different bikes took its toll: one of the trays fell off the rack by accident. Still a good rack for anyone who uses it less often andor with only one size of bike.
George - 08/01/2022


This bike rack is very sturdy, which adds to its hefty weight. Overall, it secures my bikes very well and the locking mechanism for both the hitch and bikes seems to be of good quality. The bikes would probably have to be damaged to be removed from the rack while it's locked, so that's about as much as you could ask for I guess. I bought this to enable transport of my triathlon bike with a disc wheel, which works perfect, even without the rear wheel strapped. The bike secures very snugly, so it doesn't shake around at all, although there is minimal play in the hitch...only very slight sway. For the price, quality, and utility, I'd definitely recommend this rack!

The bike rack is still holding up well. We use it almost every weekend and its been great. No issues whatsoever.

Overall value 5/5
Overall features
Overall quality 4/5

Assembly instructions that do not have a parts list???
Instructions poorly (not horribly) written. Luckily it's easy to assemble. Like the overall rack. Fits modern 29" mountain bike without issue.

Not great, had to upgrade Would rate it a three start product in retrospect. Much of the hardware is cheap. Having a single rail to move wheel cradle son really limits adjustments.
David I - 06/09/2021


Haven’t used the rack a great deal, but have had no problems with it. We did have to purchase a bar adapter for the girls bike, as it just wasn’t stable enough without it. We have fenders on our bikes and cannot use the clamp on the tires. It’s not lightweight. It takes some strength to install it. We use it on a Toyota Tundra and a Subaru Crosstrek.


This bike rack does everything I need you want a bike rack to do - and at a reasonable price. It holds the biked snuggly but has rubber coating to protect the bikes. It ha locks for the bikes and where it attaches to the hitch. It is light enough and easy enough to take off. It folds up when not in use and it tilts easily to allow access to the rear lift gate. We looked for a long time but we got the right rack!

It has been a year and still loving this rack. Still works well and locks down tight and is tight in the hitch. As always - when you have something for a while you will find some issues. I have only found two. 1. the tire holding brackets can move after a while even after I really tighten the screw. So I drilled a hole and put a small bolt through the bar that stops my brackets from sliding. This would be a nice addition to the bracket. 2. I have not had an issue as we have a male and female bike but the 2 hooks that come down on the bike frame must be at different heights. This MIGHT be a problem with two of the same bikes as you cant hook both of them at the top bar?? I would absolutely still buy this rack again!!

Highly recommend the Swagman Chinook Bike Rack! I have been using mine regularly during the last year and have had no issues. It's easy to attach and remove from my Honda CR-V. It's very sturdy and doesn't shift or 'bounce' around when I'm driving.


This is a decent bike rack for the price. It is sturdy and works really well with my hatchback. It doesn't take very long to install. It took me and a friend less than two hours total. The only reason I took off a star is because getting the bike into position closest to the car can be tricky and awkward. Not sure how to make this better. It does get easier the more I use it, but I have managed to smack myself in the face with my bike a few times. I have recommend this bike rack to other friends.

Still loving my Swagman bike rack! I made the mistake of leaving it on my car over the winter so it got snowed on a lot and now it is rusty in some places. Still works great and holds my bike securely.

waited a few weeks to review in order to fully use the rack as intended. First off, assembly was a breeze. I mounted this on a 2019 Subaru Outback 3.6 with a 2" receiver hitch. With 2 mountain bikes mounted up the rack showed very little to no sway while driving. The rack is very solidly built. The included wheel trays will fit up to a 3" wide tire (tested with a Specialized Fuse Comp 27.5+). The tilting feature gives plenty of room for the rear hatch to open. Levers for the tilt function and the support bar are solid and lock into place very well.

The only real negative with this is that it does block the rear view camera and back up sensors but that is to be expected with something that is mounted right in front of the bumper.

Overall, well worth the wait for it to arrive back in stock and highly recommend the Swagman Chinook over the pricier Thule Doubletrack.


Things I wanted in a platform bike rack:
that could accommodate at least a 49" wheel base
-At least 35 lbs per bike capacity, but preferably 45 lbs
-A Rack that could fold up and out of the way without hitting the bumper or interfering with the rear hatch opening.
-A rack that would have enough clearance to still open the hatch with the bikes mounted and tilted away.
-My bike (that I was concerned about fitting): 2017 Trek Fuel EX 7 29er, size XXL.

This rack hit all of those requirements! I was a bit hesitant because there was no confirmed fitment for the 2014+ Forester (beyond some measurements), but I ordered it anyway.

I'm happy to report that the rack fits perfectly. I attached pictures that show that there is plenty of clearance when the bike is mounted, bike is mounted and tilted away (to open the hatch), and when the rack is folded up (to clear bumper and open the rear hatch).

Rack itself:

-Assembly and installation was fairly easy. The directions could be somewhat confusing, but read carefully and pay attention and it will be easy.
-The cam locks that are used to tilt/fold the rack and to release the vertical arm are much more convenient than having to remove and re-insert a pin.
--there is some up and down play from the tilt/fold cam lock, but it actually does not cause excess movement when the bikes are mounted and the car is moving, hitting bumps, turning, etc.
-Very minimal movement from the rack while in motion.
-The padding on the hooks is fairly hard, so I did buy some pipe insulation to protect the top tube on my bikes.
-The rack hooks lock and there is a lock for the hitch pin. No cables necessary!
-The wheel trays are very sturdy and easy to adjust.
-The price was very reasonable, especially considering that locks are included.

-awesome database of information AND the best prices that I could find.
-the support team is also very responsive and helpful.

I'm very happy with my hitch rack so far, and I'm very happy to have ditched my roof bike carriers!


I have been using this with 1 bike (not 2 yet) for about a month now, and it has worked great for me so far. Yes it is pretty heavy and still has movement going over bumps, but it seems very strong. I just took the 2nd bike tire mounts off until I need them. Everything is metal on this except the bike frame ratchet track and button mostly. I use it on a 2014 sonic hatchback with the trailer hitch I bought from here as well. I recommend this for people not wanting to risk scratching the paint on their car. The pictures make it look like it sticks way past the sides of my car, but that's not correct.


This worked well on my 2015 Chevrolet Malibu. I bought this rack to haul my two bikes 2300 plus miles from Charleston, SC to Las Vegas, NV and I am extremely pleased with it. It comes with bike and hitch locks that give you just enough security for those quick bathroom stops where your bike might be out of your sight for a few minutes. I was travelling alone so this was perfect for my needs at quick stops. The one night I stayed in a hotel, I did bring the bikes in the room with me. The mounted rack with the bikes felt solid and sturdy but did have a little wobble which is normal with hitch type bike racks. I have a Class II Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver (Item # C12115) and Curt recommends the use of stabilzer straps to be used with all non trailer loads so I used the Curt Cam Buckle Stabilizing strap (Item # 18050) and let me tell you, it works and I recommend it. It drastically reduced the wobble and kept the bike rack steady during my trip. I encountered heavy rain, snow, high winds and wind gusts and the rack withstood speeds up to 80 mph with no problems whatsoever. I love this rack and I highly recommend it. Great bang for your buck in my opinion.


I have a Specialized Turbo Como, which is an Electric assist bike, so a bit heavier and bulkier than a standard bike. I ordered the Swagman Chinook because I wanted support for the wheels as opposed to hanging by the frame.
It works perfectly.
I added a picture of the through bolt that is designed draw the 2" rack insert tight to the receiver to minimize sway, which it does. The problem is that the locking feature won't work because it extends too far and interferes with the tow package connections. If this bolt was 1 1/2" shorter it would work fine. I don't know why it is as long as it is for a 2" receiver, but it makes the lock unusable. My vehicle is a GMC Denali, but this would probably be true for all GMC and Chevy vehicles for the past ten years. That would be a great fix.


Chose this Swagman Chinook rack to haul our two new ebikes on our Honda Fit. The platform rack made loading the heaver bikes easier then a hanging rack that we had for the family van. Our ebikes did not have a top bar (step through) so the wheel straps and the top bar retaining arm holding the the down bar held each bike securely.

The rack works like a dream. We upgraded our tow vehicle from the Honda Fit to a chevy traverse. We now use the swagman Chinook on the RV and use the traverse to use the Hollywood 4 bike rack. Originally the rack were reversed so we still can handle up to 6 bikes when we have 6 family memebers or friends travel in the RV.

So, I remember wanting to write a review when I bought bike rack and receiver. The experience was awesome. I spoke to a real person. I gave her my VIN number and I sent her a pic of my bike. She told me exactly what I needed. She even gave me a direct dial so that I could contact her - that's right the same person that helped me with the order - if I had any problems. I was almost in tears as I am not sure I have ever dealt with an internet company that assigned 1 person to take care of me. It was awesome. The product worked as advertised, the experience was great and I would highly, highly, recommend etrailer.


Initially this rack was back ordered. But eTrailer kept me up to date and informed me when it shipped. Today I put the rack together~~instructions were easy to follow and all parts were delivered. I’m a 65+ year old female and I had no problems. Can’t wait to attach to my car and hit some trails.

Follow up after one year: still love it! I haven’t removed it from my car as it easily folds out of the way to open the back SUV door to load groceries, etc. All equipment still works wonderfully wheel wells, straps, etc.
Marilyn - 08/22/2022


Works wonderfully on my Chevy Malibu. Only complaint is if you have shift/brake cables running across the top tube of your bike the clamping mechanic will cause those cables to scratch your bike bad. Just something to keep in mind as it’s more of I bought the wrong style bike rack rather then a issue with the bike rack.

After over a year of use and many trips. Still holds up strong. No issues at all. Just use a microfiber cloth between the cables and the frame to combat the scratches from the tie down bar
Jakob - 02/15/2022


I'll be using this rack for a Trek Remedy 29er. Overall, the fit/finish of this rack is fine, and the added wheel protection on the ratcheting loops is a nice touch. The arm(s) that touch the bike frame could be softer, but I might just use a towel or something to cover the frame.
I am, however, less than impressed with the locking hitch pin. I've never seen one that needlessly long before. Would be extremely easy to snip off. I don't know if Swagman makes a shorter one, but it's certainly needed.
I give 4 stars for the rack build quality, and 1 star for the threaded locking hitch pin.


I purchased this rack for my 2014 Subaru Forester. I originally bought a used Thule rack that hung the bikes from the top tube (or the top tube adapter, in the case of my mountain bikes), but my bike hung too low. After much research into various racks, I selected this Swagman Chinook. The ratings were good, the price was right, and it had all the features of a much more expensive rack. The rack was very easy to put together upon arrival, and it took me just a few minutes to adjust it to my mountain bike's size. I really like the fact that the rack locks to the car and also locks the bikes down to the rack. The rack tilts in easily to the vehicle when not in use. It's easy to put the rack on and take off of my car as well. I found the easiest way to load my bike (Niner RIP 9) is to raise the top hook to the tallest height and then lower the top tube hook rack. After I put the bike wheels in the tray and ratchet them down with the padded straps, I swing the top tube rack up and lock it down. If I attempted to load the bike with the top tube rack up, I had to really maneuver the bike around it while trying to get the wheels seated, and worried I'd scratch my car. I took it on a trip up north on a very windy day, and there was no sway. So many great features at a price that can't be beat.

Pretty good after a year. Discovered I need to re-tighten the hitch bolt where it connects the rack to the hitch - it loosens off with time. Otherwise, an excellent rack.
Theresa - 06/21/2019


Used our Swagman Chinook 2 bike platform for the first time today. My wife and I really like it. Drove about 60 miles to a rail trail at a state park. Easy to load and unload, travels well on the highway and secondary roads. Love the ability to tilt the rack with the bikes on for easy access to the rear door of our Subaru Outback. It appears to be a very well made carrier. It does weigh almost 50 lbs, and that is our only complaint.

One year later and we have used it numerous times. Still works great, no complaints.
Howard - 07/05/2018


This is a good durable bike rack and easy to use


Very easy to install by one person. Easy to put bikes on. My 38lb electric bike ride without much wiggle/wobble. I did put a piece of insulating tubing on my bikes cross bar to double protect the paint. Very happy with this bike rack. Have told my friends they should consider the Swagman Bike Rack for their lighter weight ebikes or non ebikes.

  • Recommended 2-Bike Hitch Rack for Use on 2014 Prius and Motorhome
    Hitch-mount bike racks that will be used on a motorhome must be specially built and must be rated specifically for that application. The reason is that at the rear of a MH there will be greater vertical and lateral stresses applied to the rack than when it is mounted on a car's hitch. The Swagman G10 S64682 and their Chinook # S64683 are both excellent racks but only one is rated for RV use so in order to use one rack on both your Prius' 1-1/4-inch Class I hitch and on the 2-inch MH hitch...

    There is going to be a platform rack that works for you, though it will have to have a very long shank to clear not only the rear bumper but also the more than 11" wide tire on your 2015 Jeep Wrangler. The exact length you need is going to depend on a quick measurement you need to take. Just take something with a straight edge like a yardstick and hold it against the back of your Jeep's spare tire and then use a tape measure to find the distance from the center of your hitch pin hole...

  • Will the Swagman Chinook # S64683 Fit a Class III Hitch
    The Swagman Chinook # S64683 has an adapter that allows it to work with 1-1/4" and 2" Class I, II, and III trailer hitch receivers. The only thing that you will want to take note of is that from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the rack when it is folded up is 6". That isn't a problem for most vehicles so you should be good to go!

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a Trailer with a 1-1/4 Inch Hitch
    The Swagman Chinook # S64683 is not rated for use on the back of a trailer (Motorhomes are fine) so I cannot recommend using it on a trailer. You can instead use the popular BikeWing # B01311. This is the only bike rack that is approved for use on a trailer AND that fits a 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch receiver (there isn't a 1-1/2 inch hitch size).

  • Installing the Swagman Chinook Bike Rack into a Class III Trailer Hitch Receiver
    When you install the Swagman Chinook, part # S64683, Swagman recommends 40 foot pounds for its locking hitch pin. I don't recommend using an impact wrench to install the hitch pin, as the correct installation can be achieved with a traditional wrench or socket set.

  • Dimension from Hitch Pin Hole to Furthest Part of Swagman Chinook Bike Rack When Folded
    The Swagman Chinook 2 Bike Platform Rack # S64683 referenced in your question will have a length of right around 15 inches from the hitch pin hole to the furthest part of the rack when it is folded up against the vehicle. I recommend simply taking this measurement out from the hitch pin hole on your trailer hitch receiver so you can see exactly how far out this will extend. This will allow you to determine if it will fit inside the garage with it mounted to the hitch. This is a really...

  • Bike Rack that Fits 2011 Subaru Forester that Will Fold up and Clear Rear Bumper
    When the Swagman bike rack part # S64683 is folded up it has 6 inches from the center of it's hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the rack when folded so it would not clear. The part # SA4412B doesn't fold but would easily clear the rear bumper so it is a viable option as well.

  • Determining if Swagman Chinook Can Fold without Hitting Rear Bumper on 2010 Toyota 4Runner
    The Swagman Chinook 2 Bike Platform Rack # S64683 referenced in your question will have a distance of 6 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole on your 4Runner to the closest part of the rack when it is folded up. In order to see if this will interfere with the rear bumper on the vehicle, I recommend taking a quick measurement from the center of the hitch pin hole on your hitch receiver to the outside edge of the rear bumper. If this measurement is less than 6 inches, this bike rack...

  • What is the Weight of the Swagman Chinook Bike Rack?
    I can confirm for you that the Swagman Chinook # S64683 weighs 47 lbs. This is a tilting and folding rack that fits 1-1/4" and 2" hitches, comes with an anti-rattle hitch lock and has a weight capacity of 45 lbs per bike. It holds your bike by the tube with padded ratcheting hooks and by the wheels with ratcheting straps. I've added links to a pair of video reviews on this rack for you to take a look at as well.

  • Does Swagman Chinook Bike Rack Come with Threaded Hitch Pin
    The hitch pin of the Swagman Chinook part # S64683 is threaded and is designed to pull the entire assembly tight to the side of the hitch tube to take out all movement. Also the 2 inch hitch adapter is designed to tighten to the shank of the hitch as well. If you check out the 4:24 mark of the review video I attached you'll see our installer taking off and installing the adapter.

  • Is Key Locking the Ratcheting Arms of the Swagman Chinook Required?
    The Swagman Chinook 2-Bike Platform Rack # S64683 does not require you to key lock the arms. The ratcheting arms allow you to secure the bikes in place with or without locking the arms in place. This will allow you to use them for your short commute to the trail without locking, but also gives you the security of locking them to deter theft when taking a longer trip out of town.

  • Compatibility of Swagman Chinook 2-Bike Rack on 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 High Country 4x4
    The Swagman Chinook 2 Bike Platform Rack # S64683 will absolutely work on your 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 High Country 4x4. The best way to show clearances for fit is to measure from your hitch's pin hole. From the center of the hitch pin hole, the closest part of the rack when folded up for storage is 6 inches. The closest part of the rack when folded down for use is 12-1/2 inches and the end of the rack from that same point is 25 inches. This is a very nice frame mounted platform...

  • Can Swagman Chinook be Modified to Sit Further Away from Rear Bumper on 2012 Mazda 3
    You can't really safely modify the Chinook # S64683 or the hitch. If it is a wheel cradle that is rubbing against the back of your 2012 Mazda 3 then you could remove the end caps, slide the wheel cradles off, and either keep them off or put them on the rack upside down so that when the rack is folded up they would be sticking out away from the back of the vehicle.
