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.


Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Bike Rack on Vehicle

Don't let your spoiler spoil your fun. The Over-the-Top bike rack lets you carry 2 bikes on the back of your vehicle without the fear of the rack's mounting straps or frame damaging your spoiler. And it works great for traditional vehicle trunks too.


High-Rise Frame for Vehicles with Spoilers

Many trunk-mounted bike racks will not fit a vehicle that has a spoiler because the rack's mounting straps will make contact with - and cause damage to - the spoiler. The Over-the-Top is designed to provide adequate clearance to accommodate most spoilers - particularly those found on newer SUVs, minivans, and hatchbacks. The high-rise frame extends up and over the top of your trunk or hatch, and you can attach the top 2 straps at angles that keep them from making contact with your spoiler.


With multiple mounting options, you can attach the straps to your vehicle's hatch, trunk, roof rack crossbars, or raised roof-rack side rails. If your hatchback has a spoiler, then the Over-the-Top is the bike transport solution for you.


Hook Attachment on Naked Roof or Standard Trunk

Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Bike Rack Naked Roof Attachment

If your vehicle has a naked roof, use the standard straps attached to the upper frame of the bike rack. Just secure the rubber-coated metal hooks to your trunk and adjust the tension of the straps with the cam buckles.


Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Bike Rack on Standard Car Trunk

To attach the rack to a standard trunk with or without a spoiler, just fold down the high-rise frame and rest it on your trunk lid. Then secure the rack with the standard hook attachments.


D-Ring Strap Attachment for Roof Rack or Side Rails

Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Bike Rack Roof Rack Attachment

If your vehicle's roof has crossbars or raised side rails, use the included D-ring straps to attach the Over-the-Top to the roof.


Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Bike Rack Roof Rack Attachment

First, position the included canvas pads between the D-ring straps and the rails or crossbars on your roof, and then wrap the straps around the bars.


Then replace the standard straps on the upper frame of the bike rack with the included quick-connect straps.


Connect the D-rings on the roof rack straps to the hooks on the quick-connect straps, and then adjust the tension of the straps.


Fold the built-in canvas pads around the straps and hooks to protect your roof from scratches and scuffs.


Hatch Anchor Attachment

Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Bike Rack Hatch Attachment

If your vehicle doesn't have a place to anchor the top 2 straps, use the included hatch anchors. With the trunk open, thread the hatch anchors through the gap between the trunk and your vehicle's roof, placing the anchors inside your vehicle and the D-rings on the roof. Then close the hatch.


Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Bike Rack Hatch Attachment

Next, replace the standard straps on the upper frame of the bike rack with the included quick-connect straps. Then connect the D-rings on the hatch anchors to the hooks on the quick-connect straps. Built-in canvas pads keep the hooks and D-rings from scratching your vehicle's roof. Cam buckles let you adjust the tension of the straps.


Adjustment Hubs and Base Strap Attachment System

Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Bike Rack Adjustment Hubs

To fit the rack to your vehicle, use 4 of the interlocking hubs with quick-release levers. Two of these hubs let you quickly adjust the position of the base to ensure that the rack is seated properly on your bumper, trunk, or hatch. The other 2 hubs let you adjust the angle of the high-rise fame.


Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Bike Rack Strap Attachment to Vehicle

Four sturdy vinyl straps with rubber-coated metal hooks let you mount the rack to your vehicle. Just loosely position the straps around the base of your trunk or hatch door. Flip the levers up to open the adjustment hubs and rotate the rack's base to the desired position. Then line up the teeth on each hub, push the levers down, and rotate the levers until the hubs are snug. Repeat this process to adjust the rack's high-rise frame, making sure that there is plenty of clearance between your spoiler and the rack.


Once the bike frame is adjusted as needed, you can tighten down the straps. Tensioners on the rack's bottom 2 straps ensure a snug fit at the base. Four foam pads on the rack's base and two on the upper frame help protect your car's finish from scratches and abrasions.


Adjustable Dual Arms

Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Bike Rack Arms

This dual-arm rack supports your bikes better than a single-arm rack, and with this style of rack, it's less likely that you'll need an adapter bar to carry women's, children's, and alternative frame bikes. However, an adapter bar (HRBA-PRO - sold separately) may still be required for some bikes. The adjustment hubs on the arms have quick-release levers so that you can move the arms up or down - independent of the base and each other - to ensure that your bikes are level during transport.


Anti-Sway Cradles

Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Bike Rack Anti-Sway Cradle

Rubber anti-sway cradles with straps firmly grip your bike's frame at 3 points, helping to prevent front-to-back sway. This minimizes bike-to-bike and bike-to-car contact during transit. The cradles rotate and slide along the bike rack arms, so you can easily adjust and space them based on the type and number of bikes you're transporting. And you can use the integrated safety strap to reduce the movement of handlebars and wheels during transport.


Folding Design

Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Bike Rack Folded Up on Vehicle

The Over-the-Top's arms can be folded down against your vehicle, and when it's not on your car, the rack can be folded flat for compact storage.


A security strap and a cable lock (sold separately) are recommended to deter theft of the rack and your bikes. The strap will secure the rack to your vehicle, and the cable lock will secure your bikes to the rack.

Video Transcript for Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Bike Rack Review - 2013 Toyota RAV4

Today on our 2013 Toyota Rav 4, we'll be test fitting the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top trunk-mounted 2-bike carrier for vehicles with spoilers, part number HRF2. Now we'll begin our test fit by placing the bike rack on the vehicle's rear bumper. Now we already went ahead and flipped out the black levers, which will allow us to adjust to fit the bike rack to the vehicle. We'll loosen up the knobs, which will allow us to bring out the small and large bars of the bike rack. The smaller one of the two bars will rest on the rear hatch of the vehicle, and the larger bar will act as a support once the top straps will come up and hook into the roof of the vehicle. Once we've established this position, we can lock down the black plastic levers and tighten down the knobs to secure it in place.

We'll now take the top straps and hook it to the top part of the vehicle. We'll take the side straps and the bottom straps and hook them as well, the side straps at the side of the vehicle, and bottom straps at the bottom of the vehicle. Now you do not want to tighten them too tight, as you want to make sure that all straps are on first, so that the bike rack doesn't favor one side of the vehicle, which will cause your bike to be held incorrectly. Once all six straps are in position, we can then tighten down the two at the top first by alternating each side as well as the bottom. Now once all six straps have been tightened down, we can then secure the slack.

Once the slack is secured, we're ready to load up our bike. We'll flip out the bottom two black plastic levers to allow us to swing out the cradle arms. Now the cradle arms do need to be level or slightly angled up. Once we've established this position, we can then clamp down the levers to secure the arms in place. We'll then undo the cradle straps and place our bike into the frame cradle.

We'll finally secure it with the straps. And now that our bike is all loaded up, that will complete today's test fit for the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top trunk-mounted 2-bike carrier for vehicles with spoilers, part number HRF2, on our 2013 Toyota Rav 4.

Have some trouble latching the sides to my automatic-open hatchback but after turning it off was able to configure and otherwise easy to use for one person attaching. Love the flexibility. 550021

I bought this for occasional use for when we travel as a family in our SUV. I researched ones that go on the roof rack and felt that the risk of hitting something was too high. The hitch-style bike racks are probably superior due to their ergonomics (designed for regular use) but also more expensive and I didn't have a hitch receptacle. This bike rack was the perfect middle ground. Initial set up (getting it to fit the profile of the vehicle) was a little challenging. I wouldn't recommend switching vehicles frequently and having to readjust it constantly. Once it's set however, it doesn't take long to put back on. The rack is quality constructed and holds very securely. 692806

Bike rack was delivered promptly. Instructions were clear and not confusing to me at all. I owned a Hollywood rack for a sedan I used to own so I was basically a step up on installing the rack to my current vehicle. This rack fits like a glove on our 2016 Honda CRV. After installation on the vehicle, mounted my back on the rack and drove to the bike shop to drop bike off for a tune up. No issues at all. The straps are certainly long enough but the Velcro ties included with rack allow you to manage the additional strap length without the straps flapping all over the place. Mounting my wife's bike which is a mono shock was somewhat difficult at first but it mounted securely on the rack. Very satisfied with product. 433078

one of the few Bike Racks I have found that fits the MDX. thus far have had a great experience with this unit. could not have asked for more. Easy to put on (once adjusted , get a friend to help with this) looks great 529760

Fairly easy to install. Had to call help line as video/instructions show you mounting rack to bike while hatch is closed. Hooks will not insert to hatch when closed. Was told to hook rack on while hatch is open. Not easy to do, as you have to hold up rack from rear bumper while closing, or hatch will automatically open if item is on bumper when closing. Difficult to hold 4 straps/hooks while holding up rack and trying to close hatch. 414429

Acura RDX

This worked very well on my Lexus RX350 with roof racks. Unfortunately, it isn't as friendly on my wive's Acura RDX without roof racks. We both have spoilers above the back window which makes it necessary to not have straps come across the spoiler. Having said that, I found the HRF2 to be the most secure and stable bike rack I have ever had. 139567

I am using my F2 on a 2016 Jeep Cherokee Limited that has a spoiler. I am very pleased with how easy it was to install the carrier. It is flexible enough that I can see how it will be adaptable to a wide range of vehicles so it may be the last one I ever have to buy. My initial trips have shown the rack to be sturdy and much easier to load that my previous rack. I also like the anti-sway grips on the vertical seat post. The only suggestion would be some kind of a locking device to lock the rack to the car. I can easily cable the bikes to each other and the rack. 268999

Have a 2007 BMWX3 and was told by the bike shop, I only had one choice but to get a hitch installed because the top spoiler was made of fibre glass and would break with a typical rear bike rack......well so glad I found this bike rack!! Just installed it this past weekend (was so easy and sturdy) and worked great with my mountain bike!!! So happy with it!!! So much better than spending $600 for a hitch install! 126621

2016 Volvo V60

It was rather difficult getting it set up and secured, plenty of straps and attachment ends. Once I got the rack setup correctly, I marked the locations so the 2nd install will be much easier. had to rethink the strapping connections with travel, but again, once I got it right, the return trip did not require any adjustments, stopped to check, all was secure. 406958


Comments
Unfortunately, due to the roundness of the hatch door on the Volvo V60, the rack does not stay secure, the clips on the hatch slide, had to stop every 10 miles or so and tighten the straps. Could not get to attach without a lot of hassle to the Jetta. I am not able to use the rack, just hangs in the garage.
Les c - 07/17/2018

This bike rack should work just fine with both your Volvo V60 and your Jetta with no issues. For the Volvo rear hatch the straps should not be resting on the spoiler, the straps should be positioned so that the strap sits above the spoiler. This can be seen as a comparison in figures 12 and 13 of the installation instructions. This bike rack should also attach to your Jetta if it is a sedan or a hatchback version. I have provided a link to the installation instructions for your reference.

Just got my rack yesterday and mounted it. Discovered that in placing the side straps on first while still holding the rack in position, it helps to use making tape to hold the strap hooks in place until the straps are tightened. The rest was easy, except the safety strap. Have not figured out how to route the strap through the buckle so it is easy to tighten and stay in place. Rack and bikes are secure but front forks are free to rotate. Secured parts of both bikes together with velcro straps. Yes, they touched but they did not move or rub. Putting two bikes on and taking them off took me five minutes. So far, so good. 420581

2017 Subaru Forester

I was excited to find a rack that would work with my 2016 Subaru Forester with a spoiler, but after using it was frustrated that I had to modify my wife's bike to make it work. If I was not leaving on vacation and had to use it I would have sent it back. It is a good quality rack and overall I am pleased with it, but you need to engineer it for women's bike too. My man's bike was an easy fit, but my wife's Trek 7100 17.5" frame design did not go on easy. The placement of the water bottle holder did not allow me to attach the bike. I had to take it off and place the water bottle on the upper frame bar. I do not like drilling into my bikes. You may want to figure out what women's frames do not easily work with your rack and warn the buyer that it will need modification. (See pictures) I also noted that you never show any women's bikes in any of your illustrations. So yes, for a man's bike this is a great rack to carry bikes when your vehicle has a spoiler. I'd give it a five start review. If you have a women's bike think again or be prepared to modify your bike. 405106


Comments
Thanks for your recent review about your Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top bike rack. I completely understand the struggles of installing a womans bike on this bike rack. There is an adapter bar that is designed for this exact purpose. I see that you were able to install your wifes bike on the bike rack, and kudos for that. We do reverence in a note on the bike rack page that an adapter bar may be needed, and the adapter bar HRBA-PRO is linked as a related item. Note: This dual-arm rack reduces the need for a bike frame adapter bar sold separately to mount a childrens, womens, 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 childrens bikes will require a bike adapter bar. I have included a link to this page for your reference and you can see the use of an adapter bar on other styles of bikes too. Thanks for your feedback and have a great day!

2012 Honda CR-V

After much research, we decided to purchase this bike rack. We have a 2012 Honda CRV. The rear hatch has a small spoiler/rear tail light at the top and we were concerned about using a rack that would push against it. This rack didn't do that and based on that feature we purchased the Hollywood rack. The video explaining how to assemble it make it easy to relate to the directions and we had it up and ready in a very short time. We have used it multiple times and absolutely love it! The bikes are securely attached. I did read a review about the concern about what to do with the extra straps...we used plastic zip ties or velcro ties to secure them. Yes, this rack did cost more than the ones in the sporting goods store, but we think it was well worth it. We are very pleased with this purchase and highly recommend it. 138241


Comments
Hi Linda, we have exactly this same kind of car. Im concerned that this bike rack will interfere with the rear windshield wiper, which apparently can automatically turn on if your front wipers are on and you drive in reverse Ive never tried this, but some people on a CRV owners forum talked about this. Also Im concerned that the weight of the bikes might press against a weak park of the rear hatch door and damage it again, I dont know from experience that this area is weak, but its something that was raised in the owners forum. Do you know anything about this?ThanksStefanie S.

Hi Stefanie S.,We, too, were concerned about the rear wiper while going in reverse. To ensure that we dont have an issue, we will be putting the wipers in the off position whenever the CRV is going in reverse. The weight of the bikes have not caused any issues on the exterior of our vehicle. Hope this helps!

We got this to go on a 2018 Honda HRV, it arrived in 48hrs, fully assembled. Our car has a non metal spoiler so figuring out how to do the initial installation was a bit tricky, good instructions helped since I am not very handy. It took me about 45 minutes to get it attached the first time but once it was on it is solid as a tank!! No issues what so ever as to anything coming loose or even moving at highway speeds. Not inexpensive but also not cheap. Once we got the initial set up subsequent attachments are quick and easy. Highly recommended 475629

2019 BMW Z4

In Feb 2019, I purchased a Model F2 Hollywood Bike carrier to carry my Electra Townie bike on-board my 2008 BMW Z4 Roadster. Typically, I carry only one bike, but the ability to take a friend is worthwhile. I am extremely happy with the quality and utility of the rack. It is, however, intimidating to look at, at first sight, but I find it user friendly to attach to the car and mount the bike. I was worried about security until I realized that by utilizing the towing eyelet and my cable lock, I can secure both the bike and the rack to the vehicle. Although the rack is specified as correct for my Roadster, I found that the integral brake light mounted on my trunk lid has shattered. The rack does not mount on or near the light. I surmise that the six mounting straps affixed to the trunk lid may distort the lid slightly enough to put a compression load on the light itself. This is a potential problem for all roadsters and convertibles with a similar brake light arrangement. Therefore, I can only give it four stars **** 747068

Kia Soul

I’ve only had it on for an evening and rode around with my bike secured. It feels very sturdy and my bike was extremely secure... it didn’t move at all. I’m glad to find something that won’t put pressure on my spoiler and a Kia Soul is considered a hatchback but has more of a flat surface like a mini van. I’m very satisfied thus far with my purchase. It took about 30 minutes to install once I figured out which install was best because it came with additional components. I didn’t need to use the “hatch” install so set up was fairly quick. 719618

This bike rack is a great product. Installation was not difficult. It works great so far, although it has only been in use for a couple days. We first tried a cheaper roof rack but it was too hard to get the bike on and off on the steep driveway. The quality of this rack is well worth the higher cost. 716302

I'm pleased to say that we have gotten lots of mileage (and our money's worth) out of this product. At first it looked a bit complicated, but the video clearly and efficiently showed us how to install and adjust the bike rack. It's been getting regular use for a year now, as we take our bikes on lots of day trips. Bikes are easy to rack and remove, and once on they stay secure. This leaves more time for enjoying the trails. Five stars for the product and the video support! 705112

I was somewhat skeptical about this bike rack for my Toyota Sienna. Another bike rack kept falling off due o the spoiler. However, it seems to be perfect! I could not have figured this rack out without the fantastic video sent to me. That made my life so much easier and I greatly appreciate having the video as an instructional resource. The Hollywood instructions were not user friendly. 699940

This rack can be adjusted and used on various vehicles. I wanted to attach a trailer hitch but there was no way with a plug in hybrid. It would have required altering the battery compartment and nullifying my warranty. So I had to go with the over the trunk rack. This rack is easy to use, is very stable. It takes a minute to figure out the best way to set the rack, but once you do it's great. I don't get any twisting, no bouncing and it has not damaged my finish. I used it for (max) 2 mountain bikes, usually one. 692558

I have a 2016 Highlander and it fit perfectly. It takes a bit to set it up and get it fitted for the car but once we did it’s great. I would definitely recommend this bike rack. 682592

  • Recommended Bike Rack for a 2019 Honda CR-V
    The options to carry bikes on your 2019 Honda CR-V are the roof (which you said you don't want), a trailer hitch (which you don't currently have), or on the trunk. The trunk mount appears to be your obvious option. Putting a trunk mount rack onto SUVs with a rear hatch can sometimes be tricky; however, the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top, part # HRF2, is the clear solution. It has a high-rise frame which reaches over the top of the hach and the spoiler. A lot of racks either don't sit...

    Hollywood Racks bike racks may not have the most modern of looks but they are solid racks that just get the job down well. For a vehicle that has a spoiler like your 2017 Ford Explorer you won't find a better trunk rack than the Hollywood Racks Over the Top part # HRF2. I attached a demo video for this rack on a similar 2015 Explorer as well. Other option is a hitch bike rack which opens up quite a few different sleek rack options. If you are in need of a hitch the Draw Tite part # 76034...

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2019 Honda Fit
    Since your 2019 Honda Fit has the spoiler at the top of the rear hatch I highly recommend the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top trunk mount bike rack. This comes in both 2-Bike # HRF2 and 3-Bike # HRF2-3 versions and is specifically designed to avoid contact with spoilers. Both bike racks have weight ratings of 35 lbs per bike, have hubs with quick-release levers for easy adjustment of the arms, and are designed to fold up for compact storage. Neither bike rack comes with locks but they can...

  • Recommended Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Compatible with 2019 Forester Sport with Spoiler
    Saris does not confirm the Bones 2 bike track as a fit for your vehicle. The best rack I can confirm as a fit is the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 bike # HRF2 or 3 bike # HRF2-3. Hollywood Racks does confirm this fit and this rack is designed to give you the best trunk mounted bike rack for a spoiler like on your 2019 Subaru Forester Sport. This rack is adjustable to fit your vehicle perfectly. If you have step-thru frames, I recommend using a bike adapter bar like # 64005 to give...

  • Recommended Bike Carrier for 2018 Ford Focus ST
    The Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # C11431 is a confirmed fit for 2013-2018 Ford Focus ST models. It is a confirmed fit for your 2018 model and will fit above the exhaust and under the bumper. This will work well for your bike rack, but you will want to make sure to install and uninstall the rack only after the exhaust pipes have cooled for safety when maneuvering in that tight space. I recommend the Swagman Chinook 2 Bike Platform Rack # S64683 which will have the locks included. If...

  • Bike Rack That Allows Full Rear Hatch Access on 2013 Honda Odyssey
    The trunk-mount Hollywood Racks # HRF2 is an excellent carrier but to give you full access to the rear of your Odyssey while you're transporting bikes the way to go is a hitch and hitch-mount bike rack that will tilt or swing away from the vehicle to give you access to the cargo area. All trunk-mount bike racks share the limitation of not allowing you to open a rear hatch or trunk when one is installed. They also prevent use of a rear wiper when one is present on the car. Other benefits...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 2019 BMW X3 and 2018 Lexus NX 300 for Heavier Bikes
    Since you need a weight capacity of 40 lbs per bike you do have to go with a hitch mounted option as all of the trunk options are limited by a 35 lb per bike capacity. For brand new vehicles like yours you really wouldn't want a trunk rack touching the paint of the vehicle anyway. So you'll need a hitch on both vehicle. For that you'd want the Curt # C13337 for the 2018 Lexus NX 300 and part # 76226 for the 2019 BMW X3 and that's taken care of. Then for a 3 bike rack we have the...

This rack is made specifically for the spoilers on the top of the trunk and is the best option for vehicles with that fin. I confirmed the fit for 2013-2018 model years of the C-Max for both the standard and hybrid. With this bike rack, I also recommend the Softride Soft Hook-and-Loop Tie Down for...

  • Recommend Trunk Mount Bike Rack to Fit a 2015 Mini Cooper S Hardtop
    To keep from damaging the spoiler on your 2015 Mini Cooper S Hardtop I recommend the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top. We have both 2-bike # HRF2 and 3-bike # HRF2-3 versions. The Over-the-Top is specifically designed for hatchback and vehicles that have a spoiler. It reaches over the spoiler securing itself on the top part of your MIni for safer, better mounting point.

  • Different Ways To Carry An E-Bike On a 2004 Honda Pilot
    The only way to carry an e-bike on a vehicle is with a hitch mounted bike rack because none of the trunk mounted or roof mounted bike carriers can handle the weight of this type of bike even if only one bike is carried. That said, the installation of a trailer hitch is very easy for most vehicles and they rarely require any permanent modifications. The other major advantage that the trailer hitch option has over a trunk mount or roof mount bike rack is that you can use the trailer hitch...

  • How to Carry 2 Bikes on a 2015 Nissan Rogue
    I do have options for you but the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 Bike Carrier part # HRF2 will not fit your 2015 Nissan Rogue. I called Hollywood Racks to confirm this. The only way to carry 2 bikes on your Rogue would be on a hitch or the roof as they do not make a 2 bike carrier compatible with your vehicle. For a trailer hitch I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 75902. This is a class III hitch with a 2" receiver tube opening. It will not require any...

    When it comes to a trunk mounted bike rack that can be used on your 2012 Prius V, as well as your 2005 Prius Hatchback, I recommend taking a look at the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 Bike Carrier, # HRF2. The Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 Bike Carrier, # HRF2, is very versatile (making it one of my favorites) and offers a high-rise frame with multiple strap mounting options to prevent damage to your spoiler. This rack is equipped with anti-sway cradles and soft rubber straps to secure...

  • Bike-Carrying Options For 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK Series
    There are a few options you can consider to carry bikes on your 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK. As you mentioned, it would be easier to use a trunk mount bike carrier, but you would not be able to open the rear hatch with a trunk-mount bike rack installed. A roof rack is another option, but it may be difficult to place bikes on and off the roof in a bike rack. A third option which I recommend is to have a hitch installed and use a hitch-mount bike carrier. This keeps the roof open, and...

  • Recommended Bike Rack for 2-Bikes on a 2016 Ford Fusion Hybrid with Spoiler
    The only 2-bike trunk mounted rack that will fit your 2016 Ford Fusion Hybrid with spoiler is the Hollywood Racks # HRF2. We typically recommend a fresh wash and wax before installing any trunk rack. It is important that the rack be installed securely to reduce bouncing or movement, which causes scratches. But honestly it is the nature of the location of the rack and the elements it encounters while on the road. Dirt and debris will get caught by the rack and then rub against your paint....

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack for a 2016 Subaru Crosstrek
    Since your 2016 Subaru Crosstrek has that spoiler there is only one type of bike carrier I recommend; the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top rack # HRF2 for 2 bikes or # HRF2-3 for 3 bikes. These racks have an additional upper arm piece that moves the top straps up and over that spoiler so no weight is put on it (since the spoiler is not meant to support weight). I have included a link to a video that shows how it works. If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar that...

  • Recommended Hitch And Bike Carrier
    The Expert answer you are referring to is for a 2013 BMW X3. The Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 Bike Rack, part # HRF2 will fit an X3 for the years 2013 and 2014. It is not a fit per the manufacturer for a 2005 through 2011. Unfortunately we do not have a trunk-mount bike carrier that will fit the 2006 X3 except for the SeaSucker carriers. I've linked the selection confirmed to fit for you. I recommend installing a trailer hitch and then a hitch-mounted bike carrier for your vehicle....

    The Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 Bike Carrier # HRF2 mentioned in your question is a confirmed fit for your 2016 Honda CR-V. This is a great trunk mount 2-bike carrier designed specifically to fit over the spoiler on vehicles like your CR-V. It also has durable anti-sway cradles that will prevent both bike-to-bike contact and bike-to-car contact. I have included a video demonstration on a similar vehicle to yours for you to check out.

    For your 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon I really like the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 Bike Carrier # HRF2 because it is essentially designed specifically for vehicles like this one that feature a rear hatch opening and spoiler. The Over-the-Top Carrier uses a high-rise frame and multiple strap mounting options to prevent any damage to the vehicle, specifically the rear spoiler on your Outback.

    Pedal removal is not a standard step for mounting a bike rack on a trunk rack like the Hollywood Racks Over the Top part # HRF2 that you referenced. In the attached RAV4 install video the pedals are off the bike as the bike is a demo-only bike and it was basically given to us without pedals.

It will fit a 2017 Nissan Rogue S as you mentioned but this is because the Nissan Rogue had an update from 2016 to 2017 in which parts of the vehicle were redesigned such as the rear bumper fascia. In order to carry bikes on a 2016 model you are going to want to install a trailer hitch like the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver part # 75902...

    For your 2019 Jeep Cherokee, the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 Bike Carrier # HRF2 will not interfere with your towing ability at your hitch.
