Yakima HoldUp 4 Bike Rack In Use

The Yakima HoldUp is a premium, tray-style bike rack that lets you carry 4 bikes using your vehicle's hitch. This rack is specifically designed to carry bikes with big tires and wide handlebars, but it will carry just about any bike, including those with wheels from 20" to 29", carbon frames, disc brakes, thru axles, or full suspensions.


Removable 2-Bike Add-On

Yakima HoldUp 4 Bike Rack Removable 2 Bike Add-on

The rack includes a 2-bike add-on that installs easily onto the base rack. When it's not needed, simply remove the add-on with the included special tool and throw it in your trunk or leave it at home. To install the add-on on your HoldUp, simply remove the endcap from the bike rack base, slide the add-on's shank into the hole on the bike rack, and secure the shank with a bolt that comes with the add-on.


Yakima HoldUp 4 Bike Rack Safety Flag and Clearance Lights

The add-on includes a safety kit with 2 red LED lights and a flag. The lights and flag ensure that the rack is visible to other vehicles on the road.


Wheel-Mount Design for Easy Bike Loading

Yakima HoldUp 4 Bike Rack Large Front Wheel Holders

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


Yakima HoldUp 4 Bike Rack Ratcheting Arm

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


Yakima HoldUp 4 Bike Rack Adjustable Rear Wheel Cradles

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


Yakima HoldUp Ratcheting Arm No Frame Contact

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


Fully Adjustable Bike Trays

Yakima HoldUp Adjustable Bike Trays

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


Complete Security

Yakima HoldUp 4 Bike Rack Built-in Cable Locks

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


Yakima HoldUp 4 Bike Rack Locking Hitch Pin

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


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


Tilting Design and Compact Storage

Yakima HoldUp 4 Bike Rack Folded for Storage

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


Yakima HoldUp 4 Bike Rack Tilted for Rear Cargo Access

The same pin tilts the rack down, while fully loaded, so you can gain access to your vehicle's rear cargo area without having to unload your bikes.

Great service as always. The rack did show up with slight damage (one of the rear wheel trays had a crack). etrailer took care of it right away and sent me a replacement. The bike rack is great as well. Thanks for the excellent service, I will shop with you again in the future.


Comments
One year later and the rack is still working great! It is so easy to load and unload bikes especially when two young boys are waiting to grab their bikes. My sons are also getting good at loading their own bikes ages9 and 11. Still happy with my purchase.

I love this rack it’s very easy to use. It keeps the bikes separated so they don’t touch and get damaged during transport. Can load and unload within seconds. My only disappointments were the keys to the back rack to make it a 4 place carrier don’t match the front part of rack and add on section doesn’t come with lock to secure it to the front portion. I ordered together so they would match. This is annoying especially for the money I paid. Second issue during transport the rear most arm that was not in use slid down and was dragging on the rd which damaged the lock and top part of arm that now needs to be replaced. This seems like a design flaw. Other wise enjoy the rack very much.


Comments
The arm needs to be folded flat when not in use. The wheel hook locks into place by the cradle. Also, it is noted in the description that the locks included with the base rack and the add-on may not use the same key. You can add a 6-pack of lock cores, item # Y07206
Yakima Same Key System (SKS) Lock Cores (QTY 6)

which are sold separately, to ensure all locks are keyed alike.

Been a Yakima user for some time. Last bike rack was the Doubledown 4. Great rack but with the newer bike frames having top bars in different shapes and sizes, putting bikes on the Doubledown was a challenge. Had to go to a platform rack.

Holdup was the fit. Carries 2 kids bikes without issues as well as my 29” and 27.5”. It is big and heavy but is solid and stable. Just makes it so much easier to carry 4 bikes. Just did a 500 mile round trip drive with them and no issues. Built in security cables is a nice feature. I did change out the two SKS cores to match up with the others.

I’ll need to replace the stabilizer pin’s holder. It’s make out of plastic and broke right when I pulled out the pin so the cable is just hanging now.

If I had to do it again, I’d buy it again. etrailer has quick shipping and great customer service.



by:

The bike rack works extremely well and fairly easy to get two adult bikes and two kids bike. The rack can be a bit heavy if lifting all in one piece. I would recommend installing the base, then the add on. Bikes are stable and secured. The locking cable is just long enough to go throught the frame, but don't expect both tires to be locked.

The only issue I had is the stablizer bold for the add on did not fit through the base rack. I called supprot and I am going to make the hole slightly larger so it will fit. Support was very knowledge and had heard of one other issue like mine so they noted my account. etrailer is great in customer support and deliver.



by:

I put together the new trailer and it is working great. Its high quality and really easy to use. It's maybe a little heavy, but I could see that from the spec sheet before I bought it.

The team at etrailer was great. There was some shipping issues with the supplier, but they were very responsive to my emails and made me feel that they were doing everything they could on their side and kept me up to date. Thanks!



by:

I own the older version and it has worked great for me. When I was considering moving up to a 4-bike rack, I decided to purchase the new version instead of the add-on to my rack. The new version had the 2 main features I was looking for: individual cable locks in each arm and adjustable trays. Ordering and shipping were easy and fast. Pre-order questions were answered quickly by etrailer.com staff. I look forward to using the full capacity of this rack when carpooling to upcoming races and the Chihuahuan Desert Bike Fest in Lajitas, TX this coming February. My only complaint is that I wish the SKS cores for all of the locks were matched so I would only need a single key instead of 2 keys.



by:

Seems like a solid rack. Really heavy and bulky which I was not expecting. You essentially have to mount the 2 bike rack to the car then slip in the 2 bike add-on. Lifting the 4 bike rack as assembled is doable but triccky. Still much better for my beloved bikes than the 4 bike cradle racks which beat the bikes up as they rub each other.
Warning: the nut in the receiver part of the rack had steel shot beads stuck in the grease so I couldn't thread the bolt in. I had to disassemble the nut holder and pick the steel beads out with a dental pick.



by:

I ordered the bike rack around 11pm on Saturday and it was delivered to me the following Thursday free of charge. The two boxes were in perfect condition and so was the rack. It was very easy to put together. I had read about some other customers having some trouble with the assembly but for me everything went together correctly and quickly. I took my Fuji traverse 1.1 for a test run on it around my town. It takes about 10 seconds to secure the bike to the rack. The bike was held in place very well and I’m looking forward to using it to transport my bikes back and forth from Rhode Island to New Hampshire this summer. It appears to be a very sturdy and well built rack. Too this point I am extremely happy with this purchase and I will give some more feedback after I have taken it on a few trips with all four bikes on it.



by:

This is a great bike carrier. It is attractive and well built. It seems to be more heavy duty than the Thule two bike carrier I have, Yakima designed this four bike carrier very well and I am looking forward to lots of trips with the option of two or four bikes. The only problem I incurried was with the bolt that holds the carrier to the two inch hitch. The threads on the bolt and the threads on the nut inside did not easily tighten down.



by:

In one word: AWESOME! Not only is the Yakima rack awesome, but the delivery was lightning fast and the purchase experience was easy! I bought the rack with the additional add-on and they were easy to install and use! Definitely recommend!



by:

I ordeed this rack and it was high quality and was easy to put together and install on the vehicle. etrailer had the best price around.



by:

Looks good. I just assembled it but have not used it yet. I did find that the included wrench does not work on my Chevy 2500 pickup. There is not enough clearance for swinging the wrench. The large hole needs to be on top. Also, I am missing a couple parts in the box but I am wondering if they were eliminated. Waiting for a response from Yakima. Looking forward for having it for RAGBRAI next year.



by:

Assembled and used it last night. Really sturdy and well built. Very cool looking too. Order and delivery from etrailer.com was painless and fast. We look forward to many trips with the family and our bikes.

Review from a similar HoldUp in Hitch Bike Racks


It's quite expensive bike rack which made in China with problematic quality control.

I have to disassemble one of the bike bases in order to remove the metal shavings inside of the end of the arm which were interfering with cable lock preventing it get fully retracted into the tube.

Inside tube, there are no coating and metal started to rust already. If you leave it mounted on vehicle and this thing gets into the rain, this will greatly accelerate the rusting process. And rusting is not covered by warranty as stated in different post. So you warned...

When I told etrailer about the quality problems... Customer support answer was hilarious. Quote from Odelia K. : "I am sorry but I do not know where you may be able to order this for shipping to the UK."

Btw, they just shipped my order to GA, USA... where did I mention UK?
I have unpleasant experience with etrailer.com. I would not recommend it.


Comments
I have not seen this metal shaving problem before. I do see that customer service is in contact with you to replace this item. Also, it sounds like Odelia mixed up her emails. I apologize for the confusion.

Review from a similar HoldUp in Hitch Bike Racks


Works well for transporting two 29" wheeled mountain bikes. However, after one year it's starting to rust in several areas (see attached photos), and the front wheel arms are becoming increasingly difficult to raise and lower. Finally the locking cable is extremely rusty as you can see in the attached photo. I'm not sure how durable this rack will be long term.


Comments
This has a limited lifetime warranty but rust is not covered under warranty. With most aftermarket products like this one, it will need taken off when not in use, lubricated often, and filed and repainted once you noticed rust forming. Here are some tips in this attached article:

Review from a similar HoldUp in Hitch Bike Racks


I just installed this on Friday and we used it for a short trip to the bike shop. So far, it is not bad. I had to laugh; Yakima applied their logo upside-down! I read the directions at least 3x to be sure I didn't have them reversed...I did it right. The directions also show a logo on both, upper & lower rack. I guess they wanted to save some $$ ? Assembly was easy with just three steps. The hitch has a lock to lock it to the car, which is great, but the cover won't stay on. It takes 2 hands, one to hold the lock in place and the other to try to put the cover over the lock. It just pops off the second you release pressure. I will try again in warmer weather, then tape it on so hopefully it will mold to the lock and eventually stay put without the tape.
I am not convinced of the stability of the bikes, really. Going over bumps they do shake. For safety, we are going to add straps from the luggage rack and through the bikes, just in case.
I really like the cable locks to secure the bikes to the rack. With our old rack there really wasn't a way to lock the bikes to the rack, and I always worried when we were traveling and stopped for food.


Comments
From looking at your photos, you installed the top wheel tray assembly opposite of the instructions. The wheel strap is to your right, and pivot arm is to your left when it comes to the bottom wheel tray assembly. The sticker belongs on the bottom wheel tray when it is in the upright position as shown in our installed photos above. Also, stabilizing straps are recommended with this rack. You can purchase something like item # 18050

  • Will The Yakima HoldUp Bike Carrier Hold Bikes with Step-Through Frames
    If you are not transporting all 3 of the step-through bikes at the same time then you could use the HoldUp, # Y02443, which has a 2 bike capacity. Otherwise you would use the 4-bike version, # Y02443-2. As long as the bikes do not have fenders on the front tires then the bikes will fit just fine. Some bikes have short fenders that do not cover much of the top of the tire. That would work too. To determine if the carrier will fit your vehicle there are a couple of measurements that need...

    Any bike carrier that will be used on a motorhome or trailer must specifically be rated for that application.

That longer distance translates into more vertical and lateral forces on the rack.
