Video Transcript for Pro Series Eclipse 4 Bike Rack Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Pro Series Eclipse. This is a tilting forward bike rack. It's designed for use in two inch hitches. Its part number is 63124. The Eclipse offer a reflector here on the rear for good night time visibility. The sturdy cradles are rubber lined and have very heavy duty hook and loop straps to help hold our bike into place. It's a single mast design which allows us just by pulling one pin- which is attached by cable so we dont lose it- to tilt the center mast away from the vehicle.

As you can see, this is going to give us access into the cargo area. The eclipse has a nice corrosion resistant black powder coat finish for durability. For security, they've incorporated six slots located across the top here. Once we have our bikes in place, we can take a cable lock thread it through these around our bikes and secure it so we dont have to worry about that. The large hook and loop straps allow us accommodate up to a two and a quarter inch top tube on our bike. The 'V' shaped pads inside the cradle are going to help to securely garb the bike and hold it in place.

The large channel on the bottom side of the rubber there will allow for our break lines or cables to run through there freely. Let's go ahead and show you how to install it on your vehicle. Installation of the eclipse is as easy as sliding the shank of the rack in to the receiver tube of our hitch. We're going to line up the threaded hole in the shank of the rack with the hitch pinhole. We'll then slide in our anti rattle bolt, thread it in inaudible 00:01:51 tight. Then we'll tighten it down using our wrench.

Well then take our provided clip and slide that in the other side to secure that bolt. Now let's show you how to load up our bike. We'll first undo our hook and loop straps. We'll then grab our bike. We'll place our bike right into the cradles that we've just exposed and bring our straps back around through the D-ring and pull them tight and wrap them around. As you can see, the bike is in there securely and we're ready to hit the road. We've got three bikes loaded, we're going to go ahead and load up our fourth bike here.

Once we have it loaded, we'll take you out through our test course, let you see what this rack really looks like in action. We're going to go through our inaudible 00:02:56 course so you can see how it moves from side to side. We're going to go through our alternating bumps, thats going to give us a good look at how it acts when we are applying some twist to it. Then we'll go through our solid bumps so you can see how it moves up and down. That'll complete today's look at the Pro Series Eclipse part number 63124. .

Assembled and used the hitch over memorial day weekend. Attached to 2008 Dodge Ram 2500, carried 2 adult bikes, 2 children's bikes. PROS: - Sturdy - Heavy duty - Well made CONS: - Reflector on the end arrived broken - Weight. This thing is very heavy by itself. - Allen wrench included is useless; too small to be used to tighten the screws due to location - Tilt mechanism didn't tilt low enough to get my tailgate down; I removed the stop bolt to enable this. - When tilting down, the bikes obviously like to shift around, and depending on how they are mounted, this could (and did) result in some less than favorable 'handlebar-in-spokes' conditions. - Also when tilting down, it is pretty much a two-person job when bikes are loaded due to weight. One person supports the rack and the other pulls/inserts the pin. - Some slack is built into the hitch piece, the pivot pin, and the lock pin, so the bikes shake around side to side some. 1 layer of gorilla tape around the hitch removed some, but 2 layers was too much. - The pin that is included to lock the rack into your hitch is very strange. Its at least an inch longer than it needs to be for a 2" receiver, and for some reason its threaded for about 2" close to the non-pin end. The rest of the bolt is thinner as well. - Children's bikes may or may not be able to fit on here on the top rail of the frame. One of the bikes I had, I had to attach it to the bottom rail instead, since I couldn't get the frame around the mounting blocks. It still seemed to ride ok, its just a little worry-some. Overall summary: - This is a fine hitch, and most of the time it will be on the back of my fifth wheel trailer, so I won't need the tilt mechanism. If you are purchasing this mainly due to the tilt, I would look elsewhere, since it's pretty painful to use, even if your tailgate clears it. 198188

The Pro Series 4 bike rack was an excellent choice for my needs. Sturdy construction, features that bike racks costing 4 times as much have and ease of assembly (under 15 minutes) made it a good buy. We will use it occasionally when we want to go riding with grandkids so it has to hold 2 adult and 2 kids bikes. I might need to buy an adapter bar once I see how the kids bikes rest on the cradle. I attached the rack to the car hitch and it felt very sturdy with minimal looseness. The tilt feature is great since it was installed on an Audi Q7. Deliver was quick(3 days) and phone service by Cathy was informative. Pictures and reviews were helpful for determining what bike rack would work better for our needs. For $119 I am very satisfied. 158973


Comments

I used the rack numerous times this summer. It is easy to install and remove. Pretty heavy construction and good locking mechanism. Did not need to buy the adapter bar as bikes fit fine without it but with some maneuvering of bikes. Still satisfied with this purchase.

Another easy to install product that fit very well into the purchased receiver. Once installed and loaded with bikes, we drove approximately 400 miles before unloading the bikes and tucking the unit away. Reinstallation was quick adn efficient as was loading the bikes for the return trip. Well spent money. 219137


Comments

We repeated our trip from a year go and the bike rack still works very well. We did experience some spacing issues with a fat tire bike, but learned that if we removed the pedals and altered the positions of the bikes when loading, everything fit well. Very good investment and now when we take the bikes on vacation, it is saved money as the cost of renting bikes has been eliminated and in the second year, the money saved has exceeded the amount invested in this rack and the receiver.

This is my first bicycle rack purchase. My wife and I just bought Haro mountain bikes and needed a transport method. I was concerned when we received the package because the box was pretty badly beat up and crushed. But when I opened it up there was no damage to the product detected. I bought this rack due to the large number of positive reviews and the positive experiences described with etrailer.com. I was very pleased with the build quality right out of the box. The steel is quite a bit heavier gauge than I expected, and the assembly was super easy. I've only used the rack a few times so far, but I don't expect to have any issues due to the quality of materials used. I'm also pleased to report that I did find the same rack elsewhere at a slightly lower price, but when I contacted etrailer about the price they honored their "Lowest Price Pledge" and returned 110% of the difference without any hesitation. I was concerned that the rubber-lined "saddles" wouldn't fit our bikes properly due to the oval/oblong shape of the Haro backbone. But the bikes fit very nicely, and the velcro straps that hold the bike in place are plenty long for the application. I am very pleased with the purchase and will definitely look here first for any future similar needs. 214614

I ordered this Bike Hitch 3 days ago, and it arrived today. It was securely packaged and easy to assemble with simple instructions. The bicycle mounts are cushioned with secure 2-point velcro wraps. The Hitch is sturdy and solid. I was very happy with the service I got from etrailer and I look forward to the new bicycling freedom that this bike hitch will give our family... and for a good price, as well. 93851


Comments

This bicycle rack has worked out great for us. We have used it on long trips and on short trips. It holds 5 bicycles, solid, but compact... unfortunately, the vehicle that we had with the trailer hitch on it a Honda van got totaled last fall, but I will look forward to using the bicycle rack with the next vehicle that we can put a trailer hitch on.

I have used etrailer.com before and it remains one of my favorite on line companies to trust. They not only have the best prices but they also have what I consider the best service. In this case I was able to watch a very well made video that showed a perfect, step by step instruction of just how my trailer hitch and trailer lights assembly was to be installed. The video was precise as to how to do the procedure. After watching the video I felt very able to complete this project without injuring my vehicle. On top of that I saved $170.00 and did the whole job in less time than I could have driven to the garage, waited for the installation and then driven home. Plus I saved the $10 in gasoline to drive to the shop and back. Etrailer.com played no games with me at any point in the transaction and they delivered the goods, via UPS, as promised in a timely manner. Then they checked up on the deal and made sure it was done as I wanted it to be. On top of that they carry a full line of the best quality products. I wish all companies, on-line or brick and mortar, could measure up to etrailer's level of performance. I doubt that this will ever happen. I really enjoy etrailer.com's professionalism. 24175

The value is excelent. As other reviews have indicated it is a bit heavy but it is very sturdy. the other racks we have had were lighter but the bikes scraped into each other a took the finish off. The racks were for a Rave 4 the back door doesn't open all the way but there is enough room for access. I don't usually do these types of evaluations, actually this is the first, but I felt that the customer service, product, price, assembly, and the quickness of delivery were cause to write this. 210878


Comments

We purchased this bike rack last year and mostly use it on the back of our camper when we travel. It is an excellent product I never worry that it is doing its job.

The detail on etrailer.com gave me a lot of confidence that the Pro Series Eclipse 4 Bike Rack would fit well on my 2013 Nissan Rogue. I was thrilled with how well packaged the rack was and I had no trouble assembling it and putting it on my vehicle (I am not handy man). It fits great! The bikes I have fit on the rack well (1 men's mountain bike, 1 women's ten speed, 1 child's bike). The child's bike is a close fit but all works well. Great product, from what seems a great company. I appreciate the detail and videos on the website. 140545

Good rack at excellent price Strong rack, easy to use, really does hold 4 bikes securely in place. Used it on a 2500-mile road trip with no problems and minimal impact on gas mileage. Be careful if your hitch receiver is low, since the corner of the rack can easily hit the ground in driveway dips, speed bumps etc. Don't expect to use the tilt feature while bikes are on it; the weight of the bikes presses on the tilt pin so it can't be pulled out. The first one I got had a flaw in the base piece so the tilt pin holes wouldn't align properly when the pole was vertical. eTrailer Customer Service was very responsive and got me a replacement in time for our trip. I am also happy to see they have clarified the description about the hitch lock (this bit me because I tried to get keyed-alike hitch & cable locks); too many companies ignore suggestions like this. Again, Customer Service was great in sorting this out quickly. Thank you! And thanks also for your great Web site with instructional videos etc. - very useful! 1423

What a great product.... As a causal biker with kids I really wanted an inexpensive rack to save me from the torture of loading bikes into the back of my SUV. I looked around and found this Tow-Ready rack for $99. Not being an avid user and having little experience with other racks I can only say that I don't see it getting any better or easier than this. the rack was simple to put together in about 10 minutes(though I will add that a took the advice of another reviewer and assembled it in the hitch receiver which made things much easier), and seems strong, sturdy and durable. There is a little play in the rack, but not much, and during my "test drive" experienced little by way of noise or rattles. I do think a bungee cord or two are needed to keep the bikes from swaying and wheels spinning but nothing major. Overall for a much reduced price this rack seems like a dead bang winner. I am extremely happy and would recommend it to anyone. You will not be disappointed with this purchase. 2818

GET THIS! and the padlock! Upon opening this product and assembling it I realized that it was even better quality than I originally thought when I bought it. I think this blows all the big names out of the water, especially for the price. PROS: -PRICE! -built VERY well and STURDY -has an anti-wobble pin, holds 4 bikes -has a platform with several holes allowing more straps or bungees to be attached and an easy way to lock bikes to the rack with a cable -it tilts out of the way (my favorite feature) -the pin that releases it to tilt is attached with a small cable to the rack so you won't lose the pin -the straps fit a wide variety of bike frames -it even has a red reflector on the end for better visibility The only complaints I have are minor. Cons: -you may have to get adapter bars for certain bikes -rack does not fold down for storage (but this also is what makes it so sturdy) -it would be nice if the padlock (item # 63140-1) automatically came with the rack 3181

solid unit with decent paint. should last quite a while. reasonably priced, good service follow up. happy customer. 92207


Comments

still going. safety attachment for the tilt release pin didnt last long but not a problem. mounts and dismounts easily, hook and loop straps still work well. maybe side mounted reflectors/labels would be nice as it protrudes quite a bit and is somewhat unobtrusive when no bikes are mounted on it. still a happy customer.

The bike rack arrived quick and was well packed. No damage or missing parts. It holds my bikes well with the use of a couple bungee cords. There is no vibration since the hitch pin is threaded into the bike rack. I keep the wrench in my truck in case I need to remove the rack. I would recommend this bike rack to my friends. 129099

The bike rack was very easy to put together and it fit my Jeep perfectly. I wish I had followed the advice that I read before ordering that suggested I buy the lock for it. Perhaps you could include it as part of the package and increase the cost accordingly. 140447

Still love the bike rack a year later. Did the lock become part of the package? I have recommended this rack to many people.

This is made very sturdy, with hitch pin, it has no give and doesn't rattle around in hitch at all. Has places to run a lock cable through to secure bicycles easily. Works with some child/kid bikes. Unfortunately, due to its thickness, it work with a limited # of children bikes, and my son's bike will not fit. This is why I bought this particular model, because it is supposed to work with children's bicycles. Other than that, this receives a perfect rating. the pull pin to tilt and allow rear access works as described and the rear reflector is a good safety touch. Otherwise, I'm very happy with this product and will shop etrailer again in the future. I would like to see an option where the hitch it brought out, so that a ball can still be attached and a trailer could still be pulled etc with the rack, maybe even just a hitch extension so maybe luggage rack. 132131


Comments

Some frames, just because of the size and shape, will need an adapter bar like part # 64005
Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's, Children's, and Alternative Frame Bikes

to provide a tube that is long and straight enough to secure to.

Arrived quickly. Assembled in a few minutes. I've used it 3 or 4 times and it is easy to load and secure the bikes. The velcro straps are better than rubber. 137750

Just a follow-up note concerning the bike rack: it is the easiest, most efficient bike rack that I have seen - simple, inexpensive, and faster loading than any of those of my friends. They envy this one.

I can't say enough good things about this product. It arrived on time and in perfect condition. It was also very easy to put together and only took me about 10 minutes total. The quality of the hitch is top notch and should last a long time. It's very easy to get our bikes on and off the hitch and we can't wait to go on some bike adventures. 228678

We have been using this rack for almost three months now. It is sturdy and easy to get the bikes off and on. We have only used it for two mountain bikes (one mens and one womens - we have not needed anything extra for the womens one). Although this is a great product and is a great price and we use it A LOT we are disappointed that we did not realize that is does not tilt down if you want to leave it on your vehicle without bikes. (This was our mistake by not paying better attention when we purchased it). It does stick out very far and I have hit my head on it several times. It is a bit heavy for me to put it on the car alone (my husband has to do it). Again, this is a great product BUT if you want to leave it on without bikes get one that tilts down when not in use, I would trade this one in a heart beat for one that does if I could. 43269

This product truly exceeded my high expectations. The other reviews of this product are correct. The build quality is excellent. I had a Thule Hitch rack before and I think this is a much better build quality. Nice, heavy steel. The locking bolt for the hitch mount is just that....a bolt instead of a standard hitch pin which also makes it more sturdy. The bikes are very stable on this rack. It also sits higher than a typical hitch carrier which I like as well. It comes nearly completely assembled. You only have to install the 4 holders onto the top of the rack with 8 allen bolts (allen wrench included) and 2 bolts to put the top half on the bottom half. Does not take long at all to assemble. Etrailer was great as well and had my order to me within 3 days with standard shipping! 22528

Well made bike rack. Took a trip to Florida from Missouri and it held my bike and bike trailer very well. I like that it has anti-rattle pin that comes with it. Had to purchase a separate lock for it but that is fairly And reasonably priced - so no big deal. Specialty pin that holds the rack in upright position has a wire holder (so You dont loose the pin). So this wire holder snaped off after couple of short trips as it wasnt welded strongly enough, but I was able to re-attach it with home made ring/loop and a self taping screw. Overall good product and highly recommend it. 302279

Haven't loaded bikes yet. Just finished assembly, which was a breeze. Feels a little loose when mounted, but don't know if that is any different than other bike racks. Only small issue with assembly was the supplied Allen wrench. The short leg is barely long enough to reach the screw inside each cradle. I used one that I had around so it went together smoothly. Did take about 15 minutes to put together, just like the box says. etrailer received my order, shipped it and I got everything installed in less than a week, start to finish. 362641

Just finished putting together and mounting my new bike rack on the back of my Highlander. It took less than 30 minutes to assemble and mount on vehicle. I then placed my bike on the rack and took a brief drive with it . The only thing I noticed is that you may want to use a bunge cord to hold the front wheel in place to keep it from swinging when driving. I may also consider looking for a small padlock to replace the hitch pin clip for security purposes. The tilting feature, for ease of access in to vehicle cargo area is also a plus. While I have not used it yet for a 'road trip', I feel very satisfied with the quality, function and price of the bike carrier. 347119

The product arrived on-time and in good condition: the reflector had been jarred loose in transit, but popped back into place with minimal effort (a little gorilla glue will make sure it stays put). Assembly was simple: 2 carriage bolts, 4 button head (hex-drive) screws with pre-applied thread-locker and it was done. I did note that the threaded weldment is on the LEFT (driver's side) side plate; the instructions show the hitch-pin bolt installed from the RIGHT (passenger's side) -- this is incorrect; the hitch will not be secure to the receiver if the hitch pin is installed from the RIGHT. I'd recommend this rack to anyone looking for an economical 4-bike transporter. 137388

Had some doubts since it was lot less expensive than the Thule Parkway that I've used in the past. But I was pleasantly surprised. The construction is solid. The design is simple and effective. Biggest difference being the single support vs. double bar of the Thule. Used it this weekend on a long road trip transporting a mt bike. Solid! Key is to balance the bike on the rails. The bolting hitch pin work great. Zero rattle. The support bar does not tilt like some of the ones out there but not a big deal for me. The whole rack does and is actually a far better design than the Thule.....much stronger. Can't go wrong with this one. Or etrailer for that matter. 63984

Low price, great product! I recently bought and used this rack with four bikes (two 24'', one 26'' and one 27'') and it worked perfectly. We used two of the 'Swagman Easy-Out Women's and Alternative Frame Bike Adapters' which worked really well as well. The rack is solid and made transporting bikes a pleasure. The rack does tilt for opening the hatchback but it does not fold, which is not an issue for my use but could be for others. If you can live without the folding feature, I would highly recommend this one. Also, the Velcro on mine is black (like in the video), not yellow as in the photo. That did not matter to me. 2271

In looking for a bike rack for our 2009 Honda Pilot, I read a number of reviews and found this product to be most favorable. So far, it has met (and even exceeded) expectations. It was easy to assemble, and I am able to attach and remove it to our Pilot without assistance. The bikes stay very secure; we added an additional bungee and bike lock on a long trip as "back-up" and it worked perfectly. I love the option to tip the rack so that I can get into and out of the back of my Pilot without having to remove the rack altogether. In addition, the cost is difficult to beat. All in all, a great value for our family! 409730

This bike rack is very sturdy. It assembles easily. All you need is a Crescent wrench and 13mm box end wrench. You will also need to carry a 12" Crescent wrench or correct socket/box wrench for the pin that holds mount to trailer receiver. The trailer socket pin is threaded and matches to a welded nut inside the bike rack. Standard clevis pin retains other end. There is a pull-pin that allows the vertical post to tip away from tailgate or rear hatch, if needed. If carrying ladies bike or "hybrid" bike, you will need the adapter bar. I highly recommend this bike rack. You will be happy with it. 108550

I had not heard of this brand, and was tempted by some of the more commonly known brands. If you have a full size truck or SUV, this is the product to get. It is extremely well made, all metal, rubber, and nylon fabric webbing, NO PLASTIC PARTS AT ALL. The thing is heavy but every single component is heavy duty, and it is built to last. I had some hesitation about the single arm design, it works really well and holds the bikes steady. I can't say enough about how much I love this product - for those where build quality is more important than light weight, you will not be disappointed! 283770

I have used etrailer for all our needs for many years. From Kayak accessories to bike racks to hitches and have been very happy with all of our purchases. Whenever you need to have have any questions answered, I know that I can call or email and get quick responses with all the right answers. We have bought several bike racks, this one will go on the front of my truck to carry additional bikes when camping with the grandchildren. Now I don't have to store 3 rather large bikes in the cap of my truck. Also reading the other reviews on the product helped greatly. 394755

I found the post into the hitch a little small and has some play. Having a bike or two weighs it down and makes it less likely to sway. I like the way the velcro straps tighten the bike to the frame. I wish there was some way to put the holder of the bike frame to swivel and lock at a slightly different angle to hold the bike straighter - especially related to women's bike. For the price however, I would not have expected that. Overall - I am pleased and have taken it on a longer trip with no problems driving up to 75 miles per hour. 129256

Very easy to install. Installs in seconds. It is a hefty product and not at all cheap. The Velcro straps are very strong and there was no slipping on the road trip. I noticed the rack does wiggle after being inserted into the hitch but the weight of the bikes kept it from being noisy. I wonder if some kind of rubber collar would help with that? Overall we are very glad to have the rack. It's a great product at a very reasonable price. Now, getting the kids' bikes on will test your creativity. Flipping upside down works too. :) 98888

Check out an adapter bar too. It clamps on to the seat post, just below the seat, and the handle bar tree. It will provide a straight, level tube to hang the bike by.

Purchased this bike rack for use with women's beach cruiser, women's mountain bike and two boys bikes. Ended up needing frame extenders for the women's bikes to have them fit properly. The rack was very sturdy and the Velcro fasteners held very securely. However, I did not feel confident traveling with the hitch pin being the only source of connection. Felt that there needed to be something else to help eliminate bounce/movement and hold the rack more tightly to the hitch itself. A simple U-clamp solved the problem. 141055

This product is excellent. It took approximately 10 minutes to put together out of the box. I looked at similar Thule and Yakima racks for more than twice the price and believe this is a superior product. The biggest thing I noticed is the quality of construction. You can tell it's built to last and doesn't rattle around like similar racks. I highly recommend this rack over Yakima or Thule. I was also very pleased with Etrailer's customer service. Great product, great customer service, I couldn't be happier. 36252

Good Value This is a very good rack for the price! I bought the rack and trailer hitch receiver at the same time and installed both with ease. It was free delivery and arrived in four days..excellent service! Unfortunately, there is too much play between the hitch receiver and the bike rack, which really concerns me. The anti-rattle pin does not come with a lock washer so it's only a matter of time before it becomes loose. I went and bought a stainless washer and lock washer for added reliability. 3437

The bike rack I ordered is constructed extremely beefy and was very easily put together. The instructions that came with it stated that it was not made for installation on RVs.; how ever the reason I bought it was because the website listed it as approved for RVs. Called e-trailer who in turn called the manufacturer who state that it was indeed designed for RVs but they forgot to update the instruction pamphlet. Great job e-trailer for immediately following up and getting me the correct info. 41610

Do you have a question about this Hitch Bike Rack?


  • Bike Rack Sways With 4 Bikes Loaded on ProSeries Eclipse Carrier # 63124 on 2007 Honda Odyssey
  • These two Pro Series bike carriers are similar overall but differ in that the Eclipse uses a single arm, 2-inch shank and offers 8 inches of clearance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the upright mast. Your Translite uses dual arms, fits both hitch sizes and provides 11 inches of clearance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the upright mast. This additional 3 inches of distance will tend to allow the Translite carrier to flex a bit more under load. My contact at ProSeries...

  • A hitch extender or adapter, like the dual-receiver MaxxTow # MT70070, cannot be used with weight distribution (WD) systems. As you note, use of ANY adapter has the unavoidable side-effect of cutting your hitch's capacity by 50-percent. An adapter would prevent the WD system from doing its job of shifting trailer tongue weight forward to the Dakota's front axle to keep your braking and steering performance intact. But we do have better alternatives for you. If you have an a-frame trailer...

  • Recommended RV Bike Racks to Transport 5 Bikes on 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Any bike rack (or other accessory) installed on the rear of a trailer will be subjected to severe up-and-down and side-to-side forces. Bike racks designed for trailer use are built specifically to handle those stresses but there are no 5-bike racks suitable for use on the back of a 5th wheel trailer. The maximum capacity for a trailer-rated bike rack is 4 bikes. I do have a way for you to load 5 bikes but it will require you to use 2 racks, and one of those will have to be a ladder-mount...

  • Recommended Hitch Mount Bike Carrier For 2015 Honda Pilot EX-L
  • The first thing you want to check when considering a hitch mounted bike rack is the clearance you need. I have attached a helpful article that explains how to measure to make sure any carrier clears the back bumper of your 2015 Pilot.

Place the straight edge vertically against the back of the bumper, letting it extend below the trailer hitch receiver opening. Then measure from the center of the hitch pin to...

  • How to Transport Small Motorcycle on Carrier Installed on Rear Hitch of Tiffin Allegro Motor Home
  • Any type of carrier - bike, cargo or motorcycle - that will be used on the back of a motorhome or trailer MUST be made specifically for that application. These accessories when used on a trailer or MH will be subjected to strong vertical and lateral forces that would easily destroy a standard carrier intended for use on a passenger vehicle. We do offer such bike carriers, such as the Pro Series hitch-mount RV bike rack # 63124. The hitch-mounted motorcycle carrier # SMC600 from Rage...
