2017 Acura RDX

I have a 2017 Acura RDX. I had to be creative for the hooks and straps to work. The lower strap hook is not compatible with my hatch. And I really didn't want to have them hook under my plastic bumper, so I shut the straps in the hatch and hooked them to 2 hooks I have in the trunk. Works perfect. A picture is attached.

I have a Cannondale Bad Girl, which is the dumbest bike ever designed ( but that is a different review forum) so I had to be creative getting it mounted like I usually do. Works great.

The only reason I gave this a 4 star is because I don't believe the hooks are really compatible with the RDX, unless you have an awesome spouse willing to get shut in the trunk and place the hooks for you while you tighten from the outside. has the best customer service I have dealt with in a while. Fantastic crew!


Decent little rack. I mounted this on a 2020 Jeep Renegade 4x4 Limited. It was difficult to get set up and as a ton of slack on the tie downs. I just cut them and burned the nylon since this is the only vehicle that this rack will ever be on. Secured one bike, rode well with little movement. Secured two bikes, a little wiggle. Secured three bikes and I was not comfortable at all!!
The bikes I loaded are a Giant Stance 1 29er Full Suspension, Trek Marlin 5 hardtail and a Liv Bliss 2. The total of weight of these 3 bikes is 92 pounds, shouldn't be that big of an issue... however, when looking at the directions on Yakima site, it says that 90 pounds includes the weight of the rack?!?!?! I mean come on be real as to what people can put on their rack without the weight of the rack. I would not buy this again if I had the choice.

However, etrailer... you guys rock. Super fast shipping and easy check-out!!


have used it several times. first time I injured my shoulder getting it fitted correctly and loading bike in it, so it took a while for my shoulder to heal and gain confidence to give it a try again. this spring it was much better, already setup for the mounting, and easier to load

2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

I have to say it only took about 15 minutes to attach to my car (2014 Mercedes E350). I placed one adult and two children bikes on the rack. Definitely have to make sure there is room between the rack and the car for the first bike petal. Other than that, all three had plenty of room. The rubber snaps were a little difficult to stretch, but once connected it was very strong. I really like the plastic guides on the top bar to help support each bike. And for They were spot on...perfect communication with honest estimates (shipping dates), and outstanding customer service. I highly recommend!!!

2016 Ford Edge

I 've just opened the box and do not qualify to give a review. What I see looks very well made, but I have concerns about the upper straps location. I have a spoiler on my 2016 Ford Edge Titanium that will not allow me to have the straps over the top. The hinge points at the top of the spoiler are my only connection point to provide strap support. The hinge point looks adequate, but the strap hook appears to be too wide to make that connection. Any suggestions before I return bike rack?

The Yakima HangOut 3 is a confirmed fit for your vehicle, but youll need to use the glass hatch hooks included with the rack. With the glass hatch hooks, youd be limited to carrying 2 bikes on the rack, due to the weight.
-- Etrailer Expert Mike L - 07/17/2018


This was my first time using, but I would buy again from here. Ordered my bike rack and received it in less than 3 days which is amazing for the size of the product. The rack itself took me like 10-15 minutes to get it set up and handles putting bikes on it like a champ. The rubber straps are a little harder to get on and off unlike what the videos shows but that's my only con.


Purchased hangout 3 bike rack. Put 3 bikes on, one a kid’s bike, and it left multiple dents in our Acura MDX. Can’t imagine we’ll use it again and are now stuck with a dented up car.

The Yakima Hangout 3 is Confirmed as a fit for your MDX, our fit notes indicate that the outerlower support frame rests on the lower portion of the license plate below the numbers. The individual bike weight limit for this rack is 35 pounds, and the combined weight limit is 90 pounds.

2013 Ford Escape

Got this for our 2013 Ford Escape for a 4 hour trip we were making on roads varying from highway to back roads. The installation is easy if you take the time to plan out the straps and follow the directions. Lots of rubber and padding to keep from scratching the car. It seemed pretty solid even with the sway. It was a little weird when we tightened things down the top bar came off the glass. It didn't affect the performance, but it did make for a little concern going down the road. If we loosened things up to keep the bar on the glass it was too loose to prevent sway.

2017 Jeep Renegade

I have now owned my Yakima HangOut 3 Bike Rack a year now and have had it mounted on my 2017 Jeep Renegade full time and hauled bike all across my home state and to three other states. I have had no issues and the bikes are well secured.

2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee

product has a solid frame, however I am returning the product due to the side hooks not securing properly on my 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The top and bottom straps fit via the 'anchor' mode but the side straps do not fit flush below the tail lights where the Yakima fit site instructs them to go, and there is no alternative spot.


Excellent, easy to install. Very good quality

2009 Honda CR-V

Can’t review the bike rack as it’s a gift for someone. But order process was easy, shipped quickly and arrived on time. Communication was awesome. And shipping was free.


Easy to set up and very sturdy with three bikes on it!


This bike rack fits my vehicle perfectly. Excellent customer service and timely delivery. Thank you!

2016 Fiat 500X

Bike rack is really good, exactly what we expected. Easy in use.
Very helpful customer service.


The product is amazing! I had to look up how to install it on my suv from youtube so that was a pain but using it since has worked out great! Thanks so much!


The bicycle rack is well designed and light, it is very easy to install just by one person. Once I tightened up the straps this rack is well secured and it did the great job as described.


Great product. Easy to install on the back of my car.






Review from a similar HangOut in Trunk Bike Racks

Very nice, works well. The only thing that was an issue was with the "Anchor" part of assembly. The straps it came with were 2-3 ft. too short. So I had to replace/substitute my cargo straps for the Yakima top straps. Other than that, I'm pretty satisfied with this item.

Still very worth every penny.

Review from a similar HangOut in Trunk Bike Racks

Great rack. Fits my Nissan Rogue Sport perfectly. Took me a while to attach it to the trunk as the instructions weren't very comprehensive. The red knobs for adjusting arms sometimes get stuck, so it can slow you down adjusting the arms. But overall it's a pretty study rack and so far held well and didn't get lose after travelling from NJ to TX.

I went on a 7 months cross country trip with my bike on the back and the rack did a great job holding the bike. It kept a steady and tight grip. One rubber tightener with holes broke up as I used it a lot and in cold weather. I just took off the spare rubber band from the second bike set as I only transport one bike. My trunk glass got a scratch line from constant contact with the rack but its kind of expected as dirt and dust get in between the rubber bar and the trunk window. Wipe the bar and the glass before every installation.

Review from a similar HangOut in Trunk Bike Racks

When I started the search for a bike rack, I was so disappointed and upset to hear that I would need to install a hitch and spend even more money to buy another bike rack for my 2016 jeep renegade. I ordered this bike rack with a little hope but got a huge surprise! Not only is it super convenient and easy to install but I can fully use my trunk and not spend a ton of money!

Still loving it and Getting lots of use out of it !

  • Is Yakima HangOut3 Bike Rack Safe to Use on Vehicle
    We haven't had any reports of the Yakima HangOut3 part # Y02638 causing vehicle damage. Like with all trunk racks the important thing to do is to keep the vehicle pain clean when using the rack and to always stay under the weight capacity of the rack which is 90 lb or 35 lbs for a single bike.

  • Will the Yakima HangeOut 3 Fit on a 2014 Kia Forte Sedan
    The Yakima HangOut 3 # Y02638 is a confirmed fit for your 2014 Kia Forte Sedan. The hooks have a vinyl paint and the cam buckles are in a rubber housing to help protect your Forte's finish. Per Yakima, the side straps are to be installed below your tail lights so you should not be worried about the hooks rubbing against your lights.

  • Installing a Yakima HangOut 2 on a 2016 Jeep Renegade With Spoiler
    For the Yakima HangOut 2, part # Y02638, you'll want to uninstall the rack when it is not in use, as prolonged installation can wear the strength of the spoiler down over time, however, normal use and correct installation go a long way to protect your spoiler. You'll want to make sure that the top hooks are correctly put into the "Anchor" mode. I've included the instructions on how to do that.

  • Yakima Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2012 Lexus LS400
    Only the Yakima HangOut 3 bike rack is confirmed to fit your 2012 Lexus LS 460, so I would not recommend using the HalfBack 3. The HangOut 3, # Y02638, would be my recommendation even if the HalfBack fit because the HangOut 3 bike rack has arms that can be adjusted independently from the support arms. I have attached a video for you to check out.

    The Yakima HangOut 3 Bike Rack # Y02638 is capable of holding children's bikes but you'll need to use the Adapter Bar # Y02531 to do so simply because the bike won't have a big enough frame for the arms of the rack to go through. This adapter bar clamps onto the tube for the handlebars and the seat post which then gives you the spacing needed to mount the bike on the HangOut. I have attached a picture of this rack on a sedan where we have the child's bike at the rearmost location. If...

If you will be carrying any women's, children's or alternative frame bikes, I recommend picking up the Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter Bar, # Y02531. Bikes with small or angled frames can be difficult to load on hanging style bike racks and they can cause ground clearance issues. This adapter will allow you to load the bikes easily and safely.

If you plan on carrying women's, children's or alternative framed bikes, I recommend an adapter bar like the Swagman Easy-Out, # 64005. This bar attaches between the seat post and the handlebar stem and allows the bike to be carried more evenly in the carrier while providing more ground clearance.
