Expert Answers about Yakima

  • Comparing the Yakima FourTimer Bike Rack # Y02469 with the Swagman Quad 2+2 # S64692
  • Both the Yakima FourTimer # Y02469 and the Swagman Quad 2+2 # S64692 that you referenced are excellent bike racks and would do a great job transporting your bikes. They both have the ability to hold up to 4 bikes that weight 45 lbs each and they are compatible with a 2 inch receiver. They both use the hook to stabilize the bike while it is in the cradles and they also have tilting and folding features. The ability to be adapted to a 2 bike rack is also an option between both of them. Typically...

  • Best Roof Rack for 2019 Jeep Cherokee With Raised Side Rails
  • The roof rack I recommend for your 2019 Jeep Cherokee with raised side rails is the Yakima RailBar Roof Rack because it will give your Cherokee a highly functional yet sleek rack system; this rack is available in either Black # Y00447-0448 or Silver # Y00432-0433. This load bars simply attach to the raised side rails on your Cherokee and fit the exact width of your roof, which is why this roof rack has such a graceful aesthetic.

  • Yakima BigStack Kayak Carrier Compatibility with Malone Crossbar Conversion Kit for Utility Trailer
  • The Malone Crossbar Conversion Kit for Standard Utility Trailer # MPG475 will allow you to add crossbars to any standard utility trailer using 78 inch square load bars. This will allow you to use the Yakima BigStack Roof Mounted 2 Kayak Carrier System # Y04041 you mentioned as it is compatible with square load bars. This will allow you to carry 2, 3, or 4 kayaks as you stated but will require additional straps for more than 2 kayaks. I've attached a photo from the instructions to show...

  • Roof Rack for 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk Luxury
  • The best roof rack for your 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk Luxury edition - which will likely have flush-mounted rails that run front-to-back with a metal strip on the top - is from Yakima because it will give your Grand Cherokee a roof rack that is highly effective, quiet, and has a refined look. You will need to check out your Jeep's roof to ensure it has the same rails with metal strips This roof rack is made up of Yakima JetStream Crossbars # Y00425 (Black) or # Y00428 (Silver),...

  • Kayak Rack for 2018 Subaru Outback Limited with Factory Roof Rack
  • The Yakima JayLow, part # Y04073, is a great J-style carrier that fits the factory crossbars on your 2018 Subaru Outback. All of the tie-downs are included. I like the JayLow because it can be folded down when you're not using it and it can also be adapted to carry two kayaks if you ever need it. They aren't required but I like to recommend the Malone QuickLash hood loops, part # MPG308, to make the tie-down connections easier. For another option look at the Lockrack carrier, part...

  • Swing Away Hitch Extender for 1Up Bike Rack
  • I reached out to a representative of Yakima who said that the Yakima BackSwing Swing Away Hitch Extender # Y02483 had a receiver that had a depth of 8 inches and was 2-1/2 inches from the edge of the receiver to the center of the hitch pin hole. Another option for a swing away hitch extender is the Kuat Pivot # PV20B. As you can see by the accompanying diagram of the measurements, this extender has two hitch pin holes, the first of which is just under 2-3/4 inches from the edge of the...

  • Comparing Yakima FourTimer and RockyMounts SplitRail 4 Bike Racks for 2013 Subaru Forester
  • Both the Yakima FourTimer 4 Bike Platform Rack # Y02469 and the RockyMounts SplitRail 4 Bike Platform Rack # RKY1140-4 referenced in your question are great, platform-style bike racks that are compatible with 2 inch hitch receivers and can hold up to 4 bikes. I recommend the Yakima FourTimer # Y02469 for a few reasons. The Yakima carrier has a generous distance of 12 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the rack when it is folded for storage. This same...

  • Recommended Rack and Roll Trailer for Kayaks and Bikes
  • The Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer - 66" # Y08106 or 78" # Y08107 ride very well at highway speeds on long trips. These 16 inch wheels work very well at any posted highway speed in favorable conditions. Just like any trailer, you want to slow down in conditions with excessive water, snow or ice, and extreme wind. We have had very happy customers with these trailers as you can see in the customer reviews and have not had any issues with the tires. This trailer has been on the market for...

  • 3-Bike Trunk Rack Recommendation for 2017 Ford Edge Titanium
  • The best 3-bike trunk rack we offer for your 2017 Ford Edge is the Yakima Fullback 3 # Y02633. This rack uses a much wider mounting pad to distribute the weight of the bike and racks evenly and as long as you keep the bike rack mounting pad and the paint surface clean you won't have any damage. Also you need to stay under the weight capacity of this rack which is 35 lbs per bike. If you plan on carrying any kidsd or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes like you mentioned...

  • Comparing Yakima DoubleDown and Ridgeback Bike Racks
  • The biggest functional difference between the Yakima DoubleDown # Y02424 and the Ridgeback # Y02458 is that the Ridgeback does come with locks. Beyond that the differences are a bit more subtle. The Ridgeback has the upgraded frame cradles that are cushioned more and use zip straps instead of the sometimes difficult to stretch rubber straps. Aside from that there's a few styling changes and a newer lever system for the rack but that's really it.

  • 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...

  • Replacement Tongue To Adapt Yakima HoldUp Bike Rack To 2 Inch Receiver Compatible
  • For your Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike Rack for 1-1/4" Hitches - Platform Style - Tilting # Y02445, the Replacement 2" Hitch Adapter for Yakima Carriers # Y8890174 will not work according to my contact at Yakima. Instead you would need the Replacement Tongue for Yakima HoldUp Bike Racks # 8880580 which will also allow you the ability to expand the rack using the Plus 2 2-Bike Add-On for Yakima HoldUp for 2" Hitches # Y02446 if you desire.

  • Trunk-Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for 2019 Subaru Forester
  • The trunk mount bike rack I highly recommend for your 2019 Subaru Forester is the Yakima FullBack because of its high-quality anti-sway cradles that ensure your bikes remain steady on the rack, as well as its integrated security features. The aforementioned anti-sway cradles on the FullBack, which is available as a 2-bike carrier # Y02634 or 3-bike carrier # Y02633, work together with ratcheting straps to secure your bikes at three different points which keep them from making contact...

  • Bike Rack for a 2019 Subaru Forester with Factory 1-1/4" Trailer Hitch
  • The factory 1-1/4 inch Subaru hitch is unique in that the hitch pin hole is very close to the face of the receiver. This means that for most bike racks there won't be enough of the shank in the receiver to safely support the rack, especially when loaded. That is why I recommend the BikeWing # B01311. It has a second pin hole which will allow you to have more of the shank in the hitch receiver. This rack also weighs just 17 pounds and holds 2 bikes at the wheels. I have linked a video review...

  • Can a Trunk Mount Bike Rack be Used on a 2016 Jeep Renegade
  • We know of 2 trunk mount bike racks that have been tested by the manufacturer and are a confirmed fit for your 2016 Jeep Renegade: Yakima HangOut 2 - # Y02637 Yakima HangOut 3 - # Y02638 If you have a different bike rack then I cannot really vouch for it and I would hesitate to use it on your Renegade. Even though these have been confirmed to fit, if you are still nervous about damage to your spoiler then I recommend installing a trailer hitch like the Draw-Tite # 76021 and then...

  • Recommended 2-Inch Class III Hitch to Replace 1-1/4-Inch Factory Hitch on 2018 Subaru Outback
  • The guidance you received about not using a 2-inch hitch on your Outback would apply if you were towing a trailer. Most 4-cylinder vehicles are generally not as towing-friendly as those with a V6 or larger engine. While this caution makes sense for towing applications it dos not really apply for use with a hitch-mounted bike rack. You are correct that Subaru's OEM hitches are not great matches for accessory applications like bike or cargo carrier use, and for the reason you stated, and...

  • Adding Two Bikes to a 2010 Subaru Forester with a Roof Basket and Hitch Mounted Bike Rack
  • The Yakima ForkChop, part # Y02117, does work with a roof cargo basket because it clamps around the bars in the bottom of the basket. I wish I had a picture or video of this but unfortunately we don't right now. Depending on your Rola basket this may be a great option for you. The ForkChop requires a crossbar spread of 32 to 50 inches. Another option is to replace the Rola basket altogether with the Kuat Vagabond X, part # VX201. It's a roof basket that includes two built-in fork...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2019 Chevy Traverse with Raised Rails for Installing Cargo Box
  • Sounds like you are looking for a roof rack that fits your 2019 Chevy Traverse and is tall enough to allow the install of a cargo box. For that you'd have to go with the Yakima Flushbar setup part numbers # Y00443-2 and # Y00158 for a rack tall enough. The Railbar would sit too low. I checked with Yakima about the Yakima RocketBox Pro 14 # Y07192 that you referenced also and it is a confirmed fit for your 2019 Chevy Traverse with factory crossbars.

  • Recommended Lock Cores And Keys For Yakima Roof Rack
  • The Replacement SKS Lock Core for Yakima Racks and Carriers - A137 # Y8771-A137 is a specific lock for key A137 # Y8772-A137. In the same way, lock core # Y8771-A145 will work with key # Y8772-A145. Since you don't need to match a specific key number, I recommend the Yakima Same Key System (SKS) Lock Cores (QTY 4) # Y07204 which comes with 4 cores and 2 keys along with a control key.

  • How to Use 1-1/4 inch Yakima Holdup Rack in 2 inch Hitch
  • You will need the Yakima Replacement Spine Assembly for 2 inch HoldUp Bike Racks, item # 8890277, to replace the shank on your 1-1/4 inch HoldUp rack and make it work correctly in your 2 inch hitch. As an alternative you could use the Hitch Reducer 2 inch to 1-1/4 inch Trailer Hitch Receiver, item # HT02, to reduce the 2 inch hitch to 1-1/4 inch for use of the HoldUp

  • Will the Yakima BackSwing # Y02483 Fit on a 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with a Spare tire
  • It really depends on the location of the hitch pin hole on your trailer hitch. A trailer hitch like the Draw-Tite # 76104, which is a confirmed fit for your 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, sticks out significantly farther than OEM trailer hitches do so it would be less likely of an issue. I did measure the Yakima BackSwing # Y02483 and found that from the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the arm assembly measured 8-1/2" while that same measurement to the handle was 11-3/4"....

  • 70 inch Aero Crossbar Roof Rack Recommendation for 2017 Honda Pilot Elite with Flush Rails
  • I have a solution that will give you 70 inch long aero shaped crossbars on your 2017 Honda Pilot. What you'll want is the Yakima CoreBar roof rack that consists of part # Y00423, # Y00148, and # Y00245. Yakima either has 60 inch or 70 inch bars so since you needed 65 inch at least 70 seemed to be the best choice.

  • Recommended Bike Rack With Tilt or Swing for Truck Bed Camper Rear Door Access
  • For your 2014 GMC Sierra with in-bed camper, I recommend the Curt Extender for 2" Receivers -18" Long # C45796. This will get your trailer hitch out far enough so you can add your bike rack. Using an adapter like this will reduce your trailer hitch receiver's tongue weight rating by 50% which should leave you in fine condition for a 2 bike rack. For your 2 bike rack, I recommend the RockyMounts BackStage 2 Bike Platform Rack - 2" - Tilting - Swinging # RKY10002. This rack will securely...

  • Which Class III Trailer Hitch for a 2017 Subaru Forester has the Best Ground Clearance
  • Hidden Hitch as a brand is being phased out but the same company makes Draw-Tite hitches. So for your 2017 Subaru Forester the Draw-Tite Class III hitch is # 75876. When we installed this hitch on a 2017 Subaru Forester, see video link, it measured 13-3/4 inches from the ground to the top of the receiver opening. So to the bottom of the receiver that distance would be approximately 11-1/2 inches. The other Class III option is Curt hitch # C13144. When we installed it the distance from...

  • Does Spare Tire Carrier for Yakima Roof Rack Cargo Baskets fit Yakima OffGrid Cargo Basket

The OffGrid basket comes in a number of different sizes so you can select the one that fits your needs: - 44" Long x 40" Wide # Y07138 - 53" Long x 49" Wide # Y07139 - 62" Long x 40" Wide # Y07138-08 - 75" Long x 49" Wide # Y07139-09 I have also added links to video reviews of the OffGrid for...

  • Will Batwing Awning Work With Yakima Roof Rack With Round Crossbars
  • The red arrow you are referring to in the accompanying photo is a part of the mounting hardware that comes with the now-discontinued RR32105, which is the entire awning and not just one part. You would not be able to attach a Batwing Awning # RR33200 or # RR33100 to your Yakima round bars; the best option for you is the Yakima SlimShady Roll-Out Awning # Y07409 which will work with round crossbars so long as they have a spread that is a minimum of 24".

  • What is the Distance Between the Hitch Pin Holes on the Yakima BackSwing # Y02483
  • The distance between the hitch pin hole that goes into the receiver of your vehicle's trailer hitch and the receiver that your bike rack/carrier installs into is 14-1/2" on center. We pulled this part and measured that distance for you. This puts the Yakima BackSwing # Y02483 3-1/2" further out than the furthest point of the Kuat Pivot # PV20B which is 11" on center.
