Video Transcript for Yakima HalfBack Trunk Mount 3 Bike Rack Review

Today we'll be taking a look at the Yakima halfback trunk mounted 3 bike rack. Part number Y02635. Got three bikes and somewhere to be The Yakima halfback trunk mounted bike rack is the perfect solution for you. It simply attaches to your trunk or rear hatch and is held in place by four straps. The straps feature rubber-coated hooks and our braces feature foam pads, so we don't have to worry about it damaging the finish on our vehicle. It's securing our bike in three locations. We have our top two cradles for our top tube.

And then for our down tube, we have this anti-sway cradle. It's gonna help prevent any sway in the bike while we're on the road, as well as prevent bike-to-bike contact and bike-to-vehicle contact. We've gone ahead and removed the bikes so we can go over some additional features. The bikes rest on our dual arms. The cradles as well as the zip strips feature soft, rubber pads that are designed to absorb road shock, and they also won't harm our bike's finish. Our arms are adjustable to help keep our bikes level.

They also fold down when not in use. This would be ideal for pulling in a garage or in a tight parking spot. It's made out of a sturdy Baumer 00:01:08 steel construction and has a weight capacity of 35 pounds per bike. If you'd like to further secure your bikes and your bike rack, you can pick up the steel reinforced security strap. That's part number YO2623. You can also pick up the cable lock.

That's part number Y07233. Here at the end, we have the Yakima signature bottle opener so that you can enjoy a cold beverage after a hard ride. The whole thing features a limited lifetime warranty. Now that we've gone over the features, I'll go ahead and show you how to get it installed. It's in the stow 00:01:38 position right now. This would be ideal for stashing it somewhere in your garage.

Let's go ahead and open up our upper brace. So we want to come over here to this center hub here, raise it up to unlock it, and that allows us to raise up our upper bracket. Check your instructions to get your fit guide number, and then you will just line it up with the notch here. Once we got it set, we can then position it on the rear of our vehicle. We want to make sure it's centered up, and then we'll put it in place. Now with it in position, we're gonna grab our strap here and it's gonna say, "Top." That's gonna go at the upper portion of our trunk right there. Then we can come down to our buckle and just kind of draw that in a little bit just to hold it in place. Then we'll repeat the same process for this side. Now unlike most trunk mounted bike racks, the Yakima halfback uses four straps as opposed to six. So our bottom ones are just gonna hook at the bottom of our trunk. We're actually gonna draw it in through here and then bring it down. In some cases if you need to lift up on your trunk to get these in, you can do that as well. Now with our straps in place, we can go around and snug them up evenly. So I'm just gonna pull down on the two bottom straps and then pull forward on the two top straps. Then we can just bunch up our excess strap and put it in the keeper. Now we're just about ready to load up our bikes, let's go ahead and raise up our arms. So I'll come over here to this gray hub. We're gonna roll it upwards, and then we can raise our arms into place. We want these positioned parallel with the ground or slightly elevated. Now in preparation for loading up our bikes, we can go ahead and take out our zip strips. We'll squeeze in on the two tabs on the sides and pull them out. Now we'll grab our bike, and when doing so it's not a bad idea to go ahead and put the heaviest bike on first. We'll work our way to the back. You may have to adjust your cradles a little bit. Then we'll set it in place. We want to make sure our anti-sway cradle is nice and snug up against this tube here. Then we can just go ahead and take our zip strips and put them back in. Now I've gone ahead and loaded up two more bikes. Some bikes, such as women's, children's, and bikes with alternative frame styles, may require the use of a bike adapter bar to sit evenly on the cradles. Yakima makes one, and that's part number Y02531. Now with all the bikes secure, the only thing left to do is to run our wheel strap. If we we're just using one bike, we could use the smaller strap for our front tire, but since we're using all three bikes, we're gonna use the larger strap. We'll simply just run it through both front and rear wheels of all the bikes and then back into itself. We can also go around the bike rack, then we'll bring it to the front, we'll put it through our buckle, then back through, then we'll pull it nice and tight. Some vehicles where the hooks may come in contact with glass, or if they can't be attached properly, require an alternative method to secure them. To do this, we'll remove the strap from the buckle. Now we can feed it through the second slot here on the hook. This creates an anchor point. Now we can feed the strap between the hatch and the vehicle. With the hatch closed, we'll pull the strap through creating a secure anchor point. Now we can reattach our straps to the bike rack and install it as normal. Now let's go ahead and take it out on our test course and see how it performs. Let's first go inaudible 00:06:17. This is gonna show side-to-side action, such as going around corners or invasive 00:06:22 maneuvering. Then on to our alternating speed bumps, this is gonna show a twisting action such as going over potholes or uneven pavement. Then finally onto our solid speed bumps, this is gonna show an up and down action, such as pulling in and out of a driveway or out of a parking lot. That's gonna complete our look on the Yakima halfback trunk mounted 3 bike rack. Part number Y02635.

Pros: Not heavy Easy to install-I did it by myself but it would be easier if someone held it while you get straps on. Easy to follow directions Easy to load bikes on it. When driving-does not bounce around with or without bikes. Con: Broke a rubber strap holder. I feel like they would dry out and break eventually. 674889

I was very pleased with my bike rack. Vehicle's are a expensive investment so I was concerned with what I thouht were the more flimsy racks on the market possible scratching my Equinox. I delayed buying one until I saw the "etrailer" video for this rack on YouTube. I Loved what I saw and now that I have purchased it, I am very happy with it. I bought the three bike model although I own two bikes. I wanted to ensure the bikes would have a scratchless lift. I plan to travel to the local trails with my husband and enjoy the outdoors more. I do recommend this rack and do so highly. The company etrailer has also exceeded my expectations. Everything arrived as promised. One suggestion. It would be great to suggest the topbar adaptor for bikers who have a untraditional topbar at the time of purchase . I was ready to go on my first trip until I read the instructions suggesting some bikes would need the topbar adaptor. I had to then order it and wait anther two days . My husbands bike will also need an topbar adaptor. Just an suggestion. 246652

Great experience, the people were top notch, and the product (a Yakima Halfback 3) installed easily enough, and my test drive of 20-30 miles of highway and in-town driving with an adult 26" bike and a kids 20" bike had no significant motion issues (the 20" bike wiggles a bit, due to smaller tubes that can move a small amount in the cradles, but nothing of concern, as the safety straps do a more than adequate job of securing things), and there was absolutely no loosening of the fittings or straps when checked at the end of the drive. If I had one wish, it would be that there was a trunk-mounted bike rack that would allow one to open & close the trunk with the rack attached, but one can see how that is not a possibility. In any even, while removing the rack to gain access to the cargo space is a nuisance, it is a bearable nuisance, taking perhaps 10-15 minutes to remove and another 10-15 min to reinstall, if one really needs to access the trunk space. As a bonus, when accessing the (extremely slow) Yakima web page for the settings to dial in for this particular vehicle, I checked to see if this rack would also work with our other vehicle - which it does. This is for a leisure transport use - for a serious camper or extended vacation, I would recommend purchasers install a hitch and go that route … but for casual, short-range use, a trunk-mounted rack works fine. 423715

Review from a similar Yakima HalfBack in Trunk Bike Racks


Great rack that fit my little Prius C. After about 100 miles of highway speeds, I'm convinced this Yakima rack is a solid way to transport my mountain bike. A bit heavy, but easy to put on and take off. Watch the installation video! I like the "zip strips" that secure your bike to the rack. No rocking or swaying. I picked up the security cable too. Works well. Etrailer ordering, customer service, packaging and speed of delivery was outstanding! Forget other sites. 494329

Review from a similar Yakima HalfBack in Trunk Bike Racks


Very nice design, I use it on a SUV and a sedan and it fits fine. The reason I do not give it 5 stars is that I think the locking U straps should be slightly longer and give you a more solid feell in my opinion. Sometimes they tend to slip one notch. 466359

I like the product; it is sturdy, easy to attach to the car and looks nice. It was delivered in a timely manner. I wasn't aware that I needed a crossbar for my mtn bike in order for it to fit the rack though. I purchased a crossbar at REI today. As my body is getting older, it will be much easier to not have to lift my bike to the top of my car anymore. Thank you for the good service. 131406

Review from a similar Yakima HalfBack in Trunk Bike Racks


I'm still not happy with the Yakima bike rack I bought a year ago. Not only it is super bulky and heavy, I believe the information on compatibility with RAV4 has been misrepresented. There is no way to attach the bottom straps to the vehicle. It is basically hanging on the top straps, which may not be very safe when the car is in motion. Also, I have a hard time to move the handles for a bike up and down. Well-made product but unfortunately it is not very user-friendly and, therefore, in my opinion, it's overpriced. Because of its weight, I'm not using my bike that often because I need to transport it to the trail. I wish I simply bought a separate standing hitch rack. 560224

Review from a similar Yakima HalfBack in Trunk Bike Racks


Product is sturdy and heavy. Took a little bit to figure out how to install on my vehicle but I believe it is very good quality. Only issue I'm having is, my bike doesn't fit. I have an older mountain bike. Would recommend this product to anyone. 506226


Comments

Why exactly isnt your bike fitting? Is it because its a Womens bike with an angled top tube or a step-through type frame? If thats the case, you can use a frame adapter bar like # 64005
Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's, Children's, and Alternative Frame Bikes
$27.95
. The adapter bar spans the distance between the seat post and the handlebar gooseneck, providing a level place for the bike rack to attach.

I really like this bike rack! 4 instead of 5 stars because the plastic feels a little cheap, but overall this rack is GREAT. Fits my 2005 Outback perfectly, lots of safety straps, and has straps for the bike down-tubes as well which keeps them from swinging back and forth. I don't think I could've gotten a better deal! I only wish there was an extra set of straps to go sideways so the rack doesn't sway when I go around corners. 663570

I purchased my Yakima HalfBack about a year ago. This bike rack was easy to hook up to my RAV 4 and just as easy to secure my bikes to.

Yes. Mazda CX3. Have had for one year. Works very good. Fits very good. Feel worry free safety with bike on rack. Material tubular seems more heavy than needs to be. Concerned about potential auto body pressure point damage both where rollers and strap hooks mount. Auto sheet metal is very thin these days. Am appreciative of asking for a ONE YEAR AFTER review. 660778

Review from a similar Yakima HalfBack in Trunk Bike Racks


Thule makes a great product and etrailer provided the correct information for our vehicle. Surprisingly it fit our other Nissan as well as the intended car. I don’t think that it was nessasary to purchase the extra arm bar for the slanted tube but have it just in case. Impressive follow up by your company. 525815

Review from a similar Yakima HalfBack in Trunk Bike Racks


Is was just what I was looking for. Nothing bulky but strong and works gently with my car. No scratches, no marks! Easy to install, it has long straps to secure my bikes and make me feel secure on the road with them. I am very happy with it!! 515749

Review from a similar Yakima HalfBack in Trunk Bike Racks


Very good bike rack. Solid, very well made. It is a little heavy but, that makes it very stable on the car- doesn't move around. It fits on my 2017 Ford Escape perfectly. 513326

Review from a similar Yakima HalfBack in Trunk Bike Racks


Works on my 2017 Toyota Prius! A bit heavy to lift on and off easily for me, (I'm a 5' 4" 105 lb woman however). Despite this, I couldn't be happier with this product. Very well designed and built. No one else had a carrier that worked with my car! Two enthusiastic thumbs up! 509226

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a Leased 2017 Subaru Impreza 5-Door Hatchback
  • I did some checking and there are some trunk mount bike racks that you can use on your leased 2017 Subaru Impreza 5-door hatchback. For a 2-bike rack you can use either the Yakima HalfBack # Y02636 or the FullBack # Y02634. For 3 bikes the HalfBack model is # Y02635 and the FullBack model is # Y02633. These racks will work even if the vehicle has a rear spoiler at the top of the hatch because the rack is positioned in such a way as to not put any stress on the spoiler. I included a picture...

  • Difference Between Yakima HalfBack and Yakima FullBack Trunk Mount Bike Racks
  • The real difference between the Yakima HalfBack, 2-bike # Y02636 and 3-bike # Y02635, and the FullBack, 2-bike # Y02634 and 3-bike # Y02633, is that the FullBack has locks. The FullBack includes an integrated cable lock to secure the bikes to the rack. Then there's also an included security cable that helps keep the rack secured to your Volvo. Of course you can add locks to the HalfBack. The Yakima security strap is part # Y02623 and the integrated cable lock is part # 8880572. Also...

  • Difference Between Yakima FullBack and HalfBack 2 Bike and 3 Bike Racks
  • The difference between the Yakima FullBack, part # Y02634 and the HalfBack, part # Y02636 is that the FullBack is fully loaded. The Yakima FullBack includes integrated bike and rack locks, which provide improved security over the HalfBack that does not have these locks. Beyond that, they are identical racks. They are available in 3 Bike variations as well, as part # Y02633 for the FullBack and part # Y02635 for the HalfBack. I've included a video review of both racks so you...

  • Trunk Bike Rack to Fit a 2018 Civic Hatchback EX
  • We do carry a few trunk mount bike racks that have been confirmed to fit your 2018 Honda Civic Hatchback. They're from Yakima; the HalfBack 2 # Y02636 and 3 # Y02635, and the FullBack 2 # Y02634 and 3 # Y02633. The only difference, besides the 2-bike and 3-bike versions, is that the FullBack includes an integrated cable lock and a security strap. I've attached a picture from Yakima's website that shows one of them on a hatchback Civic for you. As well as videos on each one going over...

  • Trunk-Mount Bike Racks for 2018 Volvo XC60
  • I checked with several of our main trunk-mount bike rack makers and did find that Yakima has several confirmed fits for trunk-mount bike carriers that will work on your 2018 Volvo XC60. For 2-bike racks you can use either the Halfback # Y02636 or the Fullback # Y02634, or for 3 bikes their larger versions # Y02635 or # Y02633. I recommend one of the Fullback carries since these include locks. Please check out the linked video on the Fullback 3.

The Yakima FullBack includes integrated bike and rack locks, which provide improved security as an anti-theft device for the bike and racks over the HalfBack that does not have these locks. Beyond that, they are identical racks. They are available in 3 Bike variations as well, as part # Y02633 for the FullBack and part # Y02635 for the HalfBack.

  • Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2015 Volvo XC60 without a Roof Rack or Trailer Hitch
  • Other than the roof and a hitch the other way to carry bikes on your 2015 Volvo XC60 would be a trunk/hatch mounted carrier. There are 1, 2, and 3-bike carriers available. The only 3-bike model is the Yakima HalfBack # Y02635. I have linked a video review of this rack for you. If you need to carry more than 3 bikes I recommend going with a trailer hitch and using a hitch mount bike rack. And should you ever need to tow a trailer or use a cargo carrier for extra storage space you will...

  • What Trunk Mount Bike Racks are Recommended for 2016 Mazda CX-3?
  • I recommend the Yakima 2 Bike Halfback part # Y02636 or Yakima 2 Bike Fullback, part # Y02634. These are similar models with the Fullback having an integrated bike lock for safety and security. These include Yakima's ZipStrip mounting system, including an anti-sway mount. The Fullback models are black, while the halfback models are a dark grey. Additionally, if you have a women's, child or aggressive (BMX or trick style) framed bike, you may need to purchase a Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation and Comparison of Yakima FullBack and HalfBack 2-Bike Trunk Racks
  • Honestly, the best way to prevent scratches to your vehicle's paint is going to get a hitch mounted rack. The difference between the Yakima HalfBack # Y02636 and the FullBack # Y02634 is that the FullBack comes with integrated locks that lock the bikes to rack and rack to vehicle. 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...

  • Comparing the Yakima HalfBack and FullBack Trunk Mount Bike Racks
  • The Yakima HalfBack # Y02635 and FullBack # Y02633 are very similar but there are some key differences. The FullBack has an integrated cable lock and comes with a security strap. Locks are available for the HalfBack but are sold separately. The security strap is # Y02623 and the cable lock is # Y07233 which also requires a lock core # Y07202. Adding these items would make the FullBack the better value. If you are not concerned about locking the bikes to the rack and the rack to the...

  • Recommended Trunk-Mount Bike Rack for 2016 Toyota Prius
  • Yes, we can help you choose a compatible 2- or 3-bike trunk-mount bike carrier for your 2016 Toyota Prius. All confirmed fits in 2- and 3-bike trunk racks for your 2016 Prius are shown on the linked page. Even if you need to transport only 2 bikes you might want to consider using a 3-bike rack since this will provide more space for the two bikes (helping to prevent them from bumping together) and make loading a bit easier. Do note that a rear wiper cannot be used with any trunk rack...

  • Will the Yakima HalfBack Trunk Mount Bike Rack Fit a 2013 Toyota RAV4 XLE
  • Yes! I checked with Yakima and I am happy to report that the HalfBack trunk mount bike rack # Y02635 is a fit for your 2013 Toyota RAV4. I have included a picture from Yakima showing the rack installed on a RAV4. If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar that goes straight across (like a typical men's bike would) then I recommend using bike adapter bar # 64005. This will allow you to carry those bikes more level and will provide better ground clearance. I have...

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack for a 2013 Toyota Venza and 2018 Mazda CX-9
  • For a trunk mounted bike rack that will fit both your 2013 Toyota Venza and your 2018 Mazda CX-9, I recommend the Yakima HalfBack Bike Rack part # Y02636 for two bikes or part # Y02635 for three bikes. This will be the most cost effective bike rack we have for you that will fit both of your vehicles. Although it is cost effective, it does not lack in quality. The HalfBack has anti-sway cradles to keep the bikes from contacting each other, adjustable arms to keep them level, and cushioned...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Honda Civic EX
  • We do have trailer hitches that are a confirmed fit for the 2018 Honda Civic EX as long as it does not have center mount exhaust. For a sedan or hatchback you'd want the part # 24954 from Draw Tite and you'd be set! For a bike rack then I really like the Saris Freedom SuperClamp part # SA4025F. This is a platform bike rack that only touches the bike at the tires and only weighs 30 lbs. The biggest drawback to platform bike racks has always been the weight of them, but with this rack...

  • Recommended Method for Transporting 3-Bikes on 2009 Honda CR-V
  • The Yakima HalfBack 2 Bike Rack # Y02636 is a 2-bike rack; the 3-bike version is part # Y02635. What limits this 3-bike carrier to only 2 bikes when used on your particular vehicle is the limited weight-carrying capacity of the hatch. Some people still prefer to use a 3-bike rack for only 2 bikes since this provides for more room between bikes and, depending on their type and size, easier loading. There is a safe way to transport 3 or more bikes on your 2009 Honda CR-V. That is to install...

  • Can the Malone Runway Hold Children's Bikes on a 2014 Chevy Equinox
  • To get some bikes such as smaller children's bikes to fit the Malone RunWay 3 Bike Rack - Trunk Mount - Adjustable Arms Item # MPG2142 will likely require the use of adapter bars such as # 64005. The problem on smaller bikes is that there isn't much space under the top bike frame tube to fit over the arms on the bike rack. A strategically placed bike adapter bar can solve that problem. The other option is to go with a bike rack with arms that are closer together and for that I recommend...

  • Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2013 Nissan Leaf
  • The Yakima HalfBack 2 Bike Rack # Y02636 would be an excellent choice for a trunk mounted bike rack for your 2013 Nissan Leaf. I checked with Yakima to confirm that this. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Yakima Tube Top Adapter Bar # Y02531 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. I attached a review video for this product also. This will allow the...

  • Rubber Bike Straps are Hard to Stretch
  • A bike rack's rubber straps can be tough to manipulate, but they are made that way for a reason. If the straps were easy to stretch, then they may not last as long or provide a secure hold for your bike. Over time the straps will become more flexible. Also, as long as the strap has a snug grip on the bike, it is not necessary to over-tighten the strap around the bike's frame. If the bike rack is fairly new, my suggestion for you would be to let the straps warm up by leaving them out...

  • Recommendation to Carry 4 Bikes with 2011 Volvo XC60
  • We do have a nice selection of trunk-mount bike carriers that are confirmed to fit your 2011 Volvo XC60, such as the Yakima HalfBack 3 Bike Rack # Y02635, however the most this or any trunk rack can safely hold is 3 bikes. To transport 4 bikes with your XC60, I recommend using a hitch-mounted bike carrier like the Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR. When used with a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver, this will allow you to transport up to 4 bikes at 35 pounds each. This carrier features...

  • Compatibility of the Kuat 2.0 Bike Rack Plus Kuat Add-On to Fit a 2013 Nissan Leaf
  • I have a solution for you, but the Kuat 2.0 Rack and Add-on cannot be used on your 2013 Nissan Leaf. Your best option would be a 3 bike trunk mounted bike rack. The Yakima HalfBack 3 Bike Rack, # Y02635, would work well on you Nissan Leaf. The Yakima rack can carry 3 bike up to a total weight of 90 lbs. The rack mounts to the back of the Leaf using 4 cam buckle straps and uses foam pads to protect your vehicle's finish. The carrier is lightweight at 20 lbs. The only restriction you...

Also the HalfBack has a 90 lbs weight capacity when carrying 3 bikes. What I like the best about the Yakima HalfBack bike rack is, unlike most trunk mounted racks,...

That said, if you are using the Curt Class I Receiver Hitch part # C11473 then it will fit but if you are using the Draw-Tite Class I Sport Frame Receiver Hitch part # 24966 it may not if you have the weld stop installed inside the receiver tube opening.

  • Will a 16 Inch Kids Bike Fit on the Yakima HalfBack Trunk Mount Bike Rack on a 2015 Mazda CX-5
  • Because the frame of a 16 inch bike is so small you will likely need to use a bike adapter bar such as # Y02531 to mount it on the Yakima HalfBack # Y02635 for 3 bikes or # Y02636 for 2 bikes. I have linked videos on the adapter bar and HalfBack for you.
