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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack to Carry 1 Catrike Expedition Trike
  • To carry one trike (delta or tadpole, either one) the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider trike carrier, # HR1000R-TRKADP, is the rack for you. It will only hold one trike and it will fit 1-1/4 or 2 inch trailer hitches. I have included a link to a video review to the right.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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....

  • 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,...

  • 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...

  • 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,...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Recommended Platform-Stype Bike Carriers For Carrying Trikes
  • Using the Trike Adapter for Hollywood Racks, part # HRTRK-ADP, on a bike carrier like the # HR1000, or on part # HR1450 will not allow you to carry an adult trike. It is intended to allow you to carry a Delta-style or Tadpole-style bike. I recommend the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 Trike Carrier, part # HR1450R-TRKADP-2. This will give you the versatility to be able to carry an adult trike as well as other bike styles. The difference between the # HR1000 and # HR1450 is that...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Can I Attach a Bike Rack to The Back of A Cargo Carrier on My 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek Hitch?
  • Great question. The reason you cannot attach a bike rack to the shank of a separate cargo basket is that they are not designed to work together. Adding another accessory to your cargo carrier reduces the tongue weight (TW) capacity of your hitch by half. The added length of the bike rack on the end of the carrier will allow greater leverage to be applied to the hitch tube, which causes the loss of capacity. Combination racks like the Hollywood Racks SE2 Bike Rack with Cargo Carrier,...

  • Fitting an RV With a Trailer Hitch Mounted Bike Rack
  • Generally speaking, RV rated racks are built to withstand the increased travel that the rack experiences when riding behind the RV. The distance from the axle to the hitch receiver is much greater than it is behind a car, causing far more bouncing and swaying when the rack is in use. Additionally, the suspension on most RV's is normally not enough to significantly reduce this travel, causing manufacturers to make racks that are significantly heftier than their passenger vehicle counterparts....

  • 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...

  • Anti-Rattle Device Suggestion while using a Towing Bike Rack and Pop Up Camper
  • For use while towing with your pop up camper trailer and hitch mounted towing bike rack, the best option would be to use the Anti-Rattle Device for a 2 inch hitch # 63232. This device will eliminate any additional rattling by pulling the ball mount portion of the hitch to one side. It also provides a secure locking mechanism for your hitch. Please keep in mind that this locking device can only be used on hollow hitch devices, it is also advised to remove this locking mechanism when...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Electric Bikes with Fat Tires

  • Will Hollywood Racks SE 4 # HR1400 Fit on a 2012 Honda Odyssey with Curt Hitch # 13608
  • 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...

  • Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for 2015 Lexus RX350 w Spoiler
  • With trunk mounted bike racks you do not want to open the trunk with the rack installed. Not only can this potentially cause the trunk to slam down and potentially injure you, but the clamps can also bind up in the hinges and dent the vehicle. The Hollywood Racks Over the Top part # HRF2 is a confirmed fit for your 2015 Lexus RX 350 though and would be a great trunk rack option. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also...

  • Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe
  • There are better options available for carrying bikes on your 2011 Camaro. Trunk mount bike racks have been around for a while and are a good, inexpensive option to carry bikes, but like you, many people are weary of using a trunk mount rack because the weight of the bike rack and the bikes is sitting on the trunk and bumper. Bike rack manufacturers test these bike racks and as long as the weight capacity of the bike rack is not exceeded and the bike rack is installed properly, you should...

  • Platform Style Bike Rack for Mountain Bikes, Beach Cruisers with Fenders and Step-Through Frames
  • The Hollywood Racks Sport Rider # HR1400 will accept a step-through bike frame as long as the top frame tube above the pedals is no less than 18 inches from the ground to the top of the tube. The Swagman XTC-4, # S64665, will fit if the measurement is no less than 12 inches. The Saris Freedom # SA4414B would work since the cradles that hold the frame can rotate and grip the step-through frame at an angle. All 3 of these racks will also accommodate bikes with fenders. I have linked...

Hollywood Racks offers their Sport Rider SE2 Trike Carrier # HR1450R-TRKADP2. This rack is designed for 2-inch hitches and can support up to a 100-lb standard trike. It is adjustable to accept a maximum wheelbase of up to 74-inches and a maximum rear wheel track width of up to 36-inches. This rack includes locks...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Biria Easy Boarding Bikes
  • I checked out pictures of Biria Easy Boarding bikes and they basically do not have any type of crosstube at all. So what you'd need to use is a bike frame adapter bar part # UB01 to provide the crosstube for the Hollywood Racks Bike Rack # HR1450. Later you will be able to add the carrier adapter pat # HR1485 as well.

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2006 Honda Pilot
  • The only trunk mount bike carriers that will fit your 2006 Honda Pilot are the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top rack # HRF2 for 2 bikes or # HRF2-3 for 3 bikes. These racks have an additional upper arm piece that moves the top straps up and over that spoiler so no weight is put on it (since the spoiler is not meant to support weight). I have included a link to a video that shows how it works. If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar that goes straight across (like...

  • Recommended 2-Bike Platform Style Hitch Bike Rack for Use on 30-Foot Trailer
  • You are correct that any bike rack that will be used on the back of a trailer or other RV must be strong enough to withstand the extra vertical and lateral stress forces found at the back of such vehicles. There are extra stresses on RVs due to the greater distance between the rear axle and the hitch tube; this greater distance translates into more leverage applied to the rack, and so RV racks are built to be extra-sturdy. The referenced Hollywood Racks TRS 2-Bike Wheel-Mount Platform...
