What our customers are saying:

Absolutely fantastic. I placed my order Saturday afternoon, and got a confirmation Monday that it had been shipped. UPS Ground arrived Wednesday afternoon, and I could track it all the way. When it arrived, EVERYTHING was there. No back orders. And the quality was outstanding. My son was impressed with the merchandise and service, and will be ordering his own receiver soon. I rate this 5 stars! Thanks.

Expert Answers about Hollywood Racks

  • How to Stop a Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack from Moving Too Much in the Trailer Hitch
  • Using an anti-rattle hitch and cable lock will add an element of security for the bike and racks but is not going to offer any additional support to reduce movement of the rack. I do have a couple of options for you though. First, you can find some additional support from the use of a stabilization strap such as # 18050. I have linked a video that shows how this strap works. Another option would be an additional anti-rattle device such as # RM-061 for a 2 inch hitch or # 93347 for...

  • Comparison Between Hollywood Racks # HR1400 and Swagman XTC-4 # S64655 Hitch Mounted Bike Racks
  • There are indeed some significant differences between the Hollywood Racks # HR1400 and the Swagman XTC-4, part # S64665. The reviews for the # HR1400 are shown on the product page for the bike rack, which you can see by using the provided link. The rack has been well received by our customers, and the reviews have been overwhelmingly positive. The HR1400 is an extremely versatile rack. It can be tilted away from the vehicle while bikes are upon it to allow easier access to the cargo...

  • Bike Carrier Suitable for Use with Heavy Electric Bike
  • Without knowing anything about your vehicle or the frame design of your bike it is hard to give you the best possible recommendation for a bike rack suitable for your 50-lb electric bike, but I can provide you with a link to our page for hitch-mount carriers that are compatible with electric bikes. We offer two hitch-mount racks that work well with electric bikes and both can be seen on the link provided. There are no trunk-mount racks designed for electric bikes due to their weight,...

  • Comparing the Hollywood Racks SE4 and Swagman 2+2 Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Racks
  • The Hollywood Racks SE4, # HR1400, and the Swagman 2+2, # S64692, are two comparable bike racks. Like you have already said, the racks can handle 2 or 4 bikes with the last 2 bike section being removable. The SE4 weighs a little less (shipping weight is 82 pounds) when compared to the 2+2 (89 pound shipping weight). For wheel cradles I give the edge to the 2+2. The actual cradles are more secure than the hoops used on the SE4. Both racks have the same 45 pounds per bike capacity so there...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack that Can Hold 16 Inch Tires on a Childs Bike
  • A 16 inch bike is small and the best option as far as a bike rack is going to be a platform style rack like # HR1400 that you have referenced. You will need to add Kids Bike Wheel Hoop Adapters, # HRSW-ADP-2, in order to carry the 16 inch bike in the rack. The adapters will prevent the tires on the bike from going too far into the hoops on the rack. I have linked a video review and the instructions for you for the bike rack. Out of the bike rack options I think this one is the best...

  • Bike & Cargo Carrier Options for Use on Winnebago View 24V Class B+ RV
  • It is generally a better idea to use a hitch receiver to support a heavy load. Lightweight ladder-mount RV bike racks are available for up to 2 bikes, such as the Surco 2 Bike Carrier # SP501BR, but if you can use hitch-mount carriers that place the load on the vehicle frame you are better off. Have a look at the safety sticker on your RV hitch. There should be a tongue weight capacity listed on it. This is important to know since that TW figure is the maximum weight load you can use...

  • 2-Inch Hitch-Mount Trike Carrier for Use with Miami Sun 24-Inch Traditional Trike Bicycle
  • We offer two specialized 2-inch hitch-mount bike carriers designed expressly for adult trikes and both come from the folks at Hollywood Racks. The single carrier you referenced, the Sport Rider Trike Carrier # HR1000R-TRKADP, is ideal for a single trike. This carrier accepts tires up to 3-inches wide and works with trikes with wheelbases up to 74-inches and track widths up to 36-inches (this is the distance between the rear tires' centers). Please see the linked review video. They also...

  • Recommended Carrier for Schwinn Meridian Adult Trike on Toyota Prius
  • All of the hitches for the Toyota Prius are Class I hitches with 1-1/4 inch receivers, so as long as you have a Class I trailer hitch you can use Hollywood Racks Sport Rider # HR1000R (for longer wheelbases) or # HR1000 and then add Trike Adapter, # HRTRK-ADP, to carry the trike. This set up is Class I compatible. I have linked instructions for you on the racks and adapter. You will need to stay within the 200 pound tongue weight rating of a class I hitch or the tongue weight rating...

  • Spare Tire Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2004 Honda CR-V
  • We do have spare tire bike racks that are compatible with your 2004 Honda CR-V, however, according to Hollywod Racks, the SR2 Spare Tire Bike Rack, # HRSR2, will not fit your CR-V. Instead, I recommend looking at either the Thule Spare Me 2 Bike Rack, # TH963PRO, or the Yakima SpareRide 2, # Y02599. Both of these bike racks have been confirmed to fit your CR-V and they can be adjusted to center the bikes with your vehicle since you have an offset spare tire. To determine which bike...

  • Hitch Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for Electric Pedego Bikes
  • For an electric bike rack that would easily carry your 2 E-bikes that weight 53 lbs a piece that have fenders you would want the Hollywood Racks Bike Rack part # HR1450E as this rack is specifically designed to work on E-bikes like yours and has a 80 lb per bike capacity. This rack secures bikes to the rack by grabbing the frame so your fenders would not interfere at all. Only issue is that you wouldn't be able to access the rear cargo door of your vehicle with the rack installed....

  • Recommended 3-Bike Trunk-Mount Rack for 2007 Honda Odyssey Van
  • For your 2007 Honda Odyssey the trunk-mount bike rack that I suggest is the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 3 Bike Rack # HRF2-3. This unique carrier features an innovative arched frame design that allows it to work well on vehicles with spoilers. Many otherwise excellent racks cannot be used on such vehicles but the HRF2-3 will avoid any interference with the rear spoiler. If any of the bikes does not have a horizontal top frame tube, such as some women's and alternative design bikes,...

  • Bike Rack to Carry Trike and Two Wheel Bike
  • The only bike rack we have that will accommodate a trike as well as a two wheeled bike is the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 # HR1450R-TRKADP2. This hitch mount bike rack will hold one trike and one two wheel bike. The maximum trike track width this carrier will hold is 36 inches. The weight capacity of this bike rack is 100 pounds. It has a built-in anti-rattle device, with an easy-to-access handle on the front of the carrier. This rack also comes with an 8 foot cable lock to secure bikes...

  • Yes, the Hollywood Racks SE 4 Bike Rack, # HR1400, will fit on your 2012 Honda Odyssey with the Curt Trailer Hitch, # C13068. In the folded position, the closest part of this bike rack will be 6 inches away from the face of the trailer hitch receiver. Once the Curt hitch is installed, the distance from the face of the Curt trailer hitch and the rear-most edge of your bumper will be 3 inches. You will have 3 inches of clearance between the rear-most part of your bumper and the closest...

  • Recommended Trunk Bike Rack for Preventing Scratches on a 2015 Mazda 6
  • Honestly, the best way to prevent scratches or damage to your vehicle's paint is going to get a hitch mounted rack like the Thule Helium # TH9042 and a trailer hitch like the Draw-Tite # 24908. 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....

  • Choosing Between Yakima RidgeBack # Y02459 and Hollywood Racks Road Runner # HR520
  • The main differences between the Yakima RidgeBack # Y02459 and Hollywood Racks Road Runner # HR520 are that the Road Runner includes locks both for the rack itself and your loaded bikes, the Road Runner's arms are a bit further apart which might make loading some bikes easier and that the Yakima can fit two hitch sizes, 1-1/4- and 2-inch, while the Road Runner fits only 2-inch hitches. If a second vehicle is in the plan then this feature may make the difference. Please note your Odyssey...

  • E-Bike Rack Recommendation for a Elux Fat Bike Cruiser that weighs 75 lbs
  • For an e-bike with fat tires we have a great option. The Hollywood Racks part # HR1450E has an 80 lb per bike capacity and when you use the fat tire adapter part # HRSPRWH-F it allows bikes with up to 5 inch wide tires to fit too. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well. Since you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Kuat Bike Frame Adapter Bar # UB01 to provide...

  • Bike Carrier for Schwinn Meridian 26-Inch Trike and Mountain Bike on Honda Ridgeline
  • According to my research Honda announced on July 12, 2013 that they were going to end production of the Ridgeline after the 2014 model year. A redesigned model is anticipated for 2016. Perhaps you have a 2014 model year? The 72-lb shipping weight of your Schwinn trike means that the bike itself probably weighs about 65-lbs, which is more than most trunk-mount bike carriers can handle. This makes a hitch and hitch-mount bike carrier the best option for your vehicle. If you don't have...

  • Recommended Bike Rack for Carrying 60 lb Yuba Mundo Cargo Bike and 3 Lighter Bikes
  • We do indeed have a bike rack that would work well for you, but the Hollywood Racks SportRider SE4 has a maximum weight capacity of 45 lbs per bike. Even though the remaining bikes are much lighter, Hollywood Racks doesn't recommend that any one single bike on the rack exceed that 45 lb capacity. The most reasonably priced bike rack we offer that would work with your scenario is the Thule T2 Classic, part # TH9044-TH9046. This bike rack has a single bike capacity of 60 lbs, which would...

  • How to Secure a Bike on the Hollywood Racks TRS Hitch Bike Rack to Deter Theft
  • The Hollywood Racks TRS Bike Rack, # HR3000, does not include integrated locks on the ratcheting arms. However, I do have a recommendation for a platform rack that has integrated locks. The Swagman Sitkka 2 Bike Platform Bike Rack, # S64687, is a tilting 2-bike platform rack that has integrated locks in the ratcheting wheel hooks. The Sitkka can carry bikes with tire widths up to 5 inches wide making this rack great for Fat Bikes. The Sitkka has a 45 lbs per bike weight capacity and...

  • Platform Bike Rack Recommendation for Beach Cruiser Bike and Boys Mountain Bike
  • I recommend the Hollywood Racks Trail Rider 2-Bike Rack # HR200. This platform bike rack will secure your bike as the wheels and frame. The wheel holders will adjust to fit bikes of different wheel sizes and wheelbases, and will hold bikes with wheelbases up to 60 inches and tires no wider than 3 inches. Exceeding similar bike racks, this rack has a weight capacity of 50 pounds per bike. The anti-rattle hitch bolt will reduce movement of the rack in the hitch receiver. When storing the...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack to Carry 1 Catrike Expedition Trike

  • Compatibility of Hollywood Racks # HR1450 with ElliptiGO Bike
  • I did some research, and found that ElliptiGo offers a modified version of the Hollywood Racks # HR1450R. The rack features a fork mount at the front wheel hoop that will accommodate the bike once the front wheel is removed. We do not offer the rack, but you could purchase a # HR1450R and add one # HR915 for each ElliptiGo bike you wish to carry, and you'd have the same rack (see photo). The HR1450 would probably not work, as the HR1450R model is specifically designed for wider bikes...

  • Recommended Bike Rack for Transporting 2 Electric Bikes
  • Don't worry, I can help get you what you need to transport your electric bikes and two additional bikes. First thing to know is that all racks are not created equal; so while the SE2 and SE4 Hollywood Racks bike racks look similar they cannot serve the same purpose for your electric bikes as they can for the average bike. This is due to the heavy weight of electric bikes. As you found we offer two racks that allow for 2 electric bikes to be transported with a 2 inch or Class II 1-1/4...

  • Will the Hollywood Rack SE4 or Swagman Quad Bike Racks Fit on an 05 Jeep Wrangler With Spare Tire
  • I recommend the Swagman Quad Bike Rack, # S64691. This rack measures 9 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the rack body when it is folded up. this will give you 1 inch clearance between your spare tire and the rack. The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider 4 Bike Rack, # HR1400, may fit on your 2005 Jeep Wrangler, but you will need to take one more measurement to be sure. Once installed and folded upright, the Sport Rider 4 will measure 6 inches from the face of the trailer hitch...

  • What Prevents the Rear Portion of the Hollywood Racks Bike Racks # HR1400 From Getting Stolen
  • The pin that secures the two pieces of the rack together to make it a 4 bike rack actually is threaded so that it there is no movement between the two pieces. In order for someone to steal the back portion of the rack he would have to have the right size wrench to un-thread it. Most bike rack thieves don't run around with sets of wrenches on them so the odds are that your rack wouldn't get stolen like this. Check out the review video I attached for this rack.

  • Differences Between Hollywood Racks SE2 Racks HR1455E and HR1450E
  • The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Bike Rack for Electric Fat Tire Bicycles # HR1455E and the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 # HR1450-FB are very similar bike racks but the key difference is that the # HR1455E is designed for E-bikes which are much heavier so the rack is reinforced more so that it has higher capacities. This rack has a capacity of 80 lbs per bike whereas the # HR1450-FB only has a 45 lb per bike capacity.

  • Depending on the weight of your tandem bike I have a solution for you. I recommend the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2, part # HR1450R. This will accommodate bikes with a wheelbase up to 74 inches. This is a 2-bike carrier so it can also carry your grandson's BMX bike. The bike rack does have a limit of 45-lbs per bike. This has a tilting feature when empty that allows rear cargo area access. For an additional add-on that allows you to be able to carry 2 more bikes you can use part...

  • Comparing the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider and Swagman XTC2 Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Racks
  • Many of the platform style bike racks are similar. In terms of overall quality and performance, the Swagman XTC2, # S64670, is my top choice when compared to the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider, # HR1000. Apart from the same basic design these two racks do have some key differences. First, the wheel hoops used on the Swagman have rubber straps which are durable and protect the bike wheels. The straps used on the Sport Rider are Hook-and-loop straps (similar to Velcro) and can fray over time. The...

Both hook styles have padding and both use an incremental adjustment system. Each system minimizes bike movement the manufacturers had a slightly different interpretation of how to implement this feature. The Swagman system is able to be adjusted in a downward position with out releasing the latch. The Hollywood Racks will...
