Expert Answers about Rockymounts

  • How to Change the Lock Core on a RockyMounts Bike Rack
  • Like you said, there isn't a master key for the RockyMounts lock cores. In order to change out a lock core you will need access to the back of the lock. Then with a small flat blade screwdriver or a knife you can press down on the pin that holds the lock in the housing and then push it out of the front. In the video I made, it is a Rhino-Rack part but the process is the same.

  • Rockymounts Split Rail 4 or Kuat Base 2.0 with 2 Bike Add On Comparison
  • I really like the RockyMounts Split Rail # RKY1140-4 because it allows you to go from a 2 bike to either a 3 bike or 4 bike rack depending on the need. The Kuat NV 2.0 # BA22B-BA02B is regarded by many as the nicest bike around but it's either 2 or 4. Split rail comes with a wall rack which is super convenient too. The Split Rail has a reputation for being very easy to operate, including the raise/lower lever, and has a fantastic anti-rattle device. If I were in your situation that's...

  • Recommended Bike Rack to Make Loading and Unloading Bikes and Rack Easier on a 2017 Subaru Forester
  • The RockyMounts BackState # RKY10002 is a great rack that sounds like it would well for you. Except that it is a pretty heavy rack at around 70 pounds. Unfortunately, swinging racks are generally heavier, as our platform racks. When you combine it into a swinging platform rack it's likely going to be pretty heavy. Taking the weight of the bike carrier into consideration I have a few other options you may like. The Yakima FullSwing # Y02465 is also a swinging rack however it's a...

  • Replacement Mounting Hardware for Curt Roof Basket # C18115
  • Yes, you can indeed use the RockyMounts hardware # RKY1052 with Curt basket # C18115. The RockyMounts hardware is identical to the hardware that comes with that Curt basket.

  • Fork Mounted Bike Rack that Fits Nissan Utili Track System in 2005 Nissan Titan
  • Yes, the RockyMounts LoBall part # RKY1097 is a bike rack that coms with adapters that will fit the rack into the channel of the track system on your 2005 Nissan Titan. I attached a review video for more info on this as well.

  • 15 mm Thru Axle Adapter Recommendation that Can Lock to Roof Bike Rack
  • This is a great question. Sounds like you are trying to determine which of the 15 mm adapters will allow you to actually lock the bike to the roof rack. Of the three you mentioned the only one that actually locks the bike to the adapter and then the adapter to the roof bike rack is the RockyMounts part # RKY1081. The rest are only adapters that allow the bike to fit the rack, but when our demo guy says the word lock he means it is clamped to the rack. Not locked like "theft-deterrent"....

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2013 Toyota Tacoma with the Bed Rail System
  • The RockyMounts DriveShaft Track, # RKY1086, that you referenced will fit and works with standard fork mount bikes as well as 15-mm and 20-mm thru axle bikes. As well as Boost 110 axles. It is confirmed to work well with the bed rail system on your 2013 Toyota Tacoma.

  • Recommended Swing-Away Bike Rack for 2018 Toyota Sienna
  • For your 2018 Toyota Sienna, I recommend taking a look at the RockyMounts BackStage 2 Bike Platform Rack # RKY10002. This is an excellent platform-style carrier that can actually swing out and away from the rear of your vehicle, with the bikes still loaded, to give you complete rear cargo access on your Sienna. The platform cradles can accept tire widths of up to 5 inches, so there won't be any issue with the 3 inch tires on your bikes. It features ratcheting hooks that will secure...

  • RockyMounts SwitchHitter on a 2017 Toyota RAV4 SE with OEM/Factory Crossbars
  • The RockyMounts Switch Hitter, part # RKY1276 is sized to fit most factory crossbars. I went to the warehouse and measured the size of the mounting clamps for this rack. The front mounting point is a flexible rubber strip that can fit up to a 2- inch thick crossbar. The rear is an adjustable, screw-mounted assembly that can fit up to a 3-1/2 inch wide crossbar, and up to a thickness of 1-3/4 inch. This fits a wide number of crossbar shapes and sizes. You'll need to verify your vehicle's...

  • Solution for Mounting Roof Bike Rack on Sheet Metal Roof
  • I wouldn't say what you are trying to do is impossible, but it's not recommended for sure. The mounting studs would be too small to spread the weight of the rack through so it would most likely bend the sheet metal. You'd be better off installing the roof rack part # S80510 first on the sheet metal then installing the part # RKY1222.

  • Comparing RockyMounts SplitRail and Saris Freedom SuperClamp 4 Bike Platform Racks
  • The RockyMounts SplitRail 4 Bike Platform Rack # RKY1140-4 and the Saris Freedom SuperClamp 4 Bike Rack # SA4026 that you referenced are both excellent, platform-style racks that will secure bikes by their wheels with no frame contact. Between these two options, I do recommend going with the Saris Freedom # SA4026 for a couple of reasons. As you mentioned, the Saris Freedom utilizes a ratcheting hook to secure both wheels on the bike, which not only allows for a bit of a tighter,...

  • Which is a Better Bike Rack Between the RockyMounts MonoRail and the Hollywood Racks TRS
  • Hollywood Racks makes a good bike rack. But with that said I am not impressed with the TRS # HR3000 or # HR3500. I find that the RockyMounts MonoRail # RKY10003 is the superior bike rack between the 2. I will say this about the TRS though; the hook design is compatible with bikes that wider forks compared to the MonoRail. The MonoRail is compatible with Class I hitches whereas the TRS is compatible with Class II only on the 1-1/4 inch side. Both are compatible with 2 inch hitches. All...

  • Can RockyMounts BrassKnuckles Roof Bike Rack for Fat Bikes Also Secure Standard Bikes
  • The RockyMounts BrassKnuckles Roof Bike Rack for Fat Bikes # RKY1201-FB referenced in your question does include an adapter that will allow you to also mount standard road or mountain bikes. You will be able to transport a bike with standard tire sizes or a fat bike with tire widths of up to 5 inches on this carrier. The ratcheting, padded hook and metal wheel brace will secure your bike by the front wheel, preventing any damage or scratching to the frame. The rack has a weight capacity...

  • Carrying Fat Bike with Thule # TH594XT Sidearm Roof Mounted Bike Rack
  • Your best bet would be to go with a rack that is compatible with the fat bike adapter. The RockyMounts BrassKnuckles roof mounted bike rack # RKY1203 is compatible with fat bikes when equipped with the # RKY1240 adapter kit. I spoke with my Thule representative, and was told that Thule doesn't offer a fat bike adapter for their # TH594XT Sidearm Roof Bike Rack. Because RockyMounts is a completely different manufacturer, Thule couldn't say if the RockyMounts Adapter Kit would be compatible...

  • Will Yakima Lock Cores Work With RockyMounts Products
  • I spoke with my contact at RockyMounts and he confirmed that the Yakima lock cores will not fit RockyMounts products, like the Flagstaff Towers # RKY3002 that you referenced. To lock the RockyMounts Flagstaff Towers # RKY3002 you will want to use the Lock Cores # RKY0332. Lock cores look similar, but typically each is specific the to manufacturer.

  • Roof Rack Channel Mount Bike Carrier That Installs into T-Slots
  • The RockyMounts BrassKnuckles # RKY1201 will not mount using T-slots on crossbars. However, the RockyMounts JetLine Bike Rack # RKY1321 can. The Jetline will only work with bikes that have a quick-release front wheel. It does feature a locking option by adding two lock cores # RKY0332. For another channel mount bike carrier that uses T-slots the Thule ProRide # TH598003 is a frame mount that doesn't require the front wheel to be removed. It uses a padded clamp that holds your bike...

  • Can RockyMounts Bed Rail Bike Carrier # RKY1097 Stay Mounted With Installation of Tonneau Cover
  • The RockyMounts Truck Bed Rail Bike Carrier, part # RKY1097, you have referenced, is designed to be installed on the factory-installed deck rail system rails of your 2012 Toyota Tacoma. The square brackets in the mounting hardware of the bike carrier will slide into the channel of the factory deck rail system. Then, the two bolts are inserted through the bracket and tightened down to hold the bracket in place. If your tonneau cover is installed in the channels of your factory rails,...

  • Opening the Rear Doors on a Ram ProMaster With a RockyMounts BackStage Hitch Bike Rack Installed
  • The RockyMounts BackStage, part # RKY10002 swings open to be 49 inches from the shank to the closest part of the rack. This should allow the doors of your ProMaster Van to open, but not to the full distance they normally do. 2017 Ram ProMaster doors swing open to 260-degrees, and you won't be able to get to that full distance with the RockyMounts swung out. You'll probably get closer to 90 to 120-degrees open, which is still plenty to load and unload cargo.

  • Truck Bed Bike Rack Recommendation for 2017 Toyota Tacoma with Cargo Rails
  • If you have bikes that are too long to face sideways in the bed of your truck and only have rails that are on either side of the bed there really isn't a way to utilize the rail and orientate your bike the way it needs to be to fit your truck bed. Normally I'd recommend a LoBall part # RKY1097 as it is locking and fits the channel of your 2017 Toyota Tacoma but your bike won't fit sideways. Realistically you would have to go with something like the Swagman Pick Truck Bed Rack part...

  • Lock Recommendation for 9 mm Dummy Axle for RockyMounts DriveShaft Bike Rack
  • For the RockyMounts DriveShaft Track Truck Bed Bike Rack # RKY1086 that you referenced the Dummy Axle part # RKY1082 does allow you to transport a 9 mm skewer like you mentioned. This does bypass the lock of the rack so a locking skewer like part # RRRBCA022 would be what you need for this as well.

  • Will this Work with the Unistrut Channel System
  • Yes, the RockyMounts LoBall Bike Rack, # RKY1097, will work with the Unistrut rail system. It is also compatible with the OEM truck bed rails systems from GM, Nissan and Toyota. This bike rack works with quick-release front wheel. I have attached a review video of this bike rack for you to check out.

  • Swing Away Bike Rack Recommendation for Mercedes Sprinter 3500
  • My favorite bike rack to recommend is the Thule Vertex Swing part # TH9031XT because it can carry up to 4 bikes and can swing out and away from the rear of the vehicle to give you complete access to the rear cargo area with bikes loaded. The arms of the rack can also fold down when not in use so that the bike rack doesn't take up much space as well. Check out the review video I attached for more info on this rack as well. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes...

  • Will the Locks Be Keyed the Same If I Purchase Two of the Rocky Mounts Truck Bed Rail Bike Carriers
  • In order to ensure that the locks are keyed-alike on the RockyMounts Bed Rail Bike Carrier, # RKY1097, RockyMounts offers replacement Lock Cores, # RKY0332, which come in a pack of two. You would simply remove the original lock cores and install the replacement, keyed-alike cores.

  • Best Trailer Hitch Receiver Bike Rack for a RadRover E-Bike on a 2015 Honda Odyssey
  • Between the RockyMounts Monorail, part # RKY10004 and the Malone Pilot, part # MPG2112, I would say that going with the Malone Pilot is the better choice. The Pilot is a very solid rack and I really like its bent rail styling, making loading a heavier bike just a little easier. Additionally, your bike having fenders means that most wheel mounts won't work for the bike, and out of the box the Malone Pilot is able to fit to either a frame or wheel mount, giving you flexibility with the...

  • What Keeps the Rear Tire on the Bike from Bouncing or Moving Around Over Bumps During Transport
  • The RockyMounts LoBAll Truck Bed Rail Bike Carrier # RKY1097 is designed to hold your bike in an upright position when used in the back or your Tacoma. We do not offer a specific product that is designed to secure the rear tire in the bed of your Tacoma, nor is one included with the RockyMounts Bed Rail Carrier. However you can use any general purpose strap to secure the rear tire of your bike down during transport.

  • Will RockyMounts TomaHawk Carry a Standard Size Mountain Bike
  • Yes, the RockyMounts TomaHawk Roof Bike Rack # RKY1222 will hold all styles of bikes that have tires from 20 to 29 inches. It includes two wheel strap extensions to fit fat tire bikes up to 5 inches wide. If you'd like to add some security to the TomaHawk you can use RockyMounts Lock Cores # RKY0332 to lock the carrier to the roof rack and the bike to the carrier.

  • Is RockyMounts BrassKnuckles Bike Rack Compatible With Rockwood Premier Pop-Up Trailer?
  • The RockyMounts BrassKnuckles Roof Mounted Bike Rack # RKY1201 may fit the roof rack on your Rockwood Premier Hard Side A213HW, though you will need to measure the distance between the crossbars. If they are between 24" and 43" then the RockyMounts rack will work great for you. I highly recommend using the Lock Cores for RockyMounts Bike Carriers # RKY0332 to secure the investments you made in your rack and bike. I've added links to video reviews of these products for you to take a look...

  • Using a Thule EasyFold Bike Rack Behind an RV
  • I have a recommendation for you, however Thule does not recommend the use of any of their racks behind an RV for any reason. RVs put additional stress on racks because of the distance that the trailer hitch receiver is from the axle, resulting in a bigger bounce when you hit a bump in the road. There is also more rattle and shake that occurs as the RV drives, causing a greater chance that the rack could fail. Thule does make sturdy products, but they maintain their current stance...

  • Do All Locks on the RockyMounts SplitRail 3 Bike Platform Rack Use the Same Key
  • Because the RockyMounts SplitRail 3 Bike Platform Rack - 2" Hitches - Wheel Mount - Tilting Item # RKY1140-3 is comprised of the 2-bike version plus the add-on the locks included with the base rack and add-on may not use the same key. Add a 4-pack of lock cores, # RKY0334, sold separately, to ensure all locks are keyed alike. I have included a link to a video review of this bike rack for you.
