Thule Apex XT 4-Bike Hanging-Style Rack Locking Cable

Note: The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the face of the hitch must be 1-1/2" or greater to use this rack.


Approved for use on cars, trucks, vans, SUVs, and motorhomes - not approved for fifth wheels or towable campers

Note: This dual-arm rack reduces the need for a bike frame adapter bar (sold separately) to mount a children's, women's, or alternative frame bicycle. However, to mount certain bikes or to keep your bike level on the rack, a bike adapter bar may be required. Most step-through bikes, dual-suspension bikes, and small children's bikes will require a bike adapter bar.


Thule Helium Pro 2-Bike Hanging-Style Rack

The Apex Swing XT is the same premium hitch-mounted rack as the standard Apex XT, but with a huge upgrade. You can swing the Apex Swing XT away from your vehicle - with bikes loaded - for easy access to your rear cargo area. It has fold-up anti-sway cradles and ratcheting straps that make it easy to load and unload your bikes. The cradles are set 7" apart, so there's enough space between your bikes to prevent them from becoming tangled on the rack. It also has a hand knob and integrated cable with keyed-alike locks that secure your bikes to the rack and the rack to your vehicle.


Swing-Away Design

Thule Apex Swing XT 2-Bike Hanging-Style Rack Swing Away Design

The Apex Swing XT has a hinged arm at the base that lets you completely swing the rack away from the rear of your vehicle with your bikes still loaded. This eliminates the need to unload the bikes or remove the rack to get to your stowed cargo. To open the hinged arm, simply pull up on the spring-loaded pin, loosen the hand knob and swing it away from your vehicle.


Folding Dual Arms with HitchSwitch Lever

Thule Apex Swing XT 4-Bike Hanging-Style Rack Folding Dual Arms with HitchSwitch Lever

The Apex Swing XT has dual arms that provide your bikes with excellent support and ground clearance during transport.


Thule Apex Swing XT 4-Bike Hanging-Style Rack Hitch Switch Lever

The HitchSwitch lever lets you fold the arms down when not in use.


HideAway Anti-Sway Cradles

Thule Apex Swing XT 2-Bike Hanging-Style Rack Anti-Sway Cradles

The Apex Swing XT has HideAway anti-sway cradles that secure each bike twice along the top tube and once along the seat post or downtube. This reduces rocking to help eliminate bike-to-bike and bike-to-vehicle contact. The soft rubber cradles rotate around the arms to accommodate your bikes' frames. Each cradle is set 7" apart on the arms, so there is more space between your bikes when compared with many other hanging-style racks. The added space helps prevent your bikes from becoming tangled on the rack.


Thule Apex Swing XT 4-Bike Hanging-Style Rack Grooves

The cradles have grooves on the surface that prevent your brake and shifter cables from getting pinched.


Thule Apex Swing XT 4-Bike Hanging-Style Rack Folding Cradles

Durable, dual-molded ratchet straps hold your bikes firmly in place on the cradles. You can remove the lower straps and fold the cradles up against the arms to make it easier to slide your bikes onto the rack.


Tool-Free Installation

Thule EasyFold XT

The knob at the front of the shank lets you quickly and easily install the rack. Just slide the shank into your hitch and turn the knob until snug. The knob deploys an anti-rattle wedge in the shank to help take play out of the hitch connection. It also sets the integrated SnugTite hitch pin into place, securing the rack to your receiver.


Complete Security for Bikes and Rack

Thule Apex Swing XT 4-Bike Hanging-Style Rack Locking Cable

The Apex Swing XT includes One-Key System locks to secure your bikes to the rack and the rack to your vehicle. The integrated cable lock threads around your bikes' frames and inserts into the lock at the end of the left arm. The cable stores inside the mast when not in use.


Thule Helium Pro 2-Bike Hanging-Style Rack Locking Cable

The lock on the hand knob secures the rack to your vehicle. The hand knob will spin freely when locked so a would-be thief can't operate it to remove the rack from your hitch. The locks are keyed alike so you can use the same keys for both locks. Additional One-Key System locks (sold separately) let you make all of your Thule products keyed alike.

This by far the strongest bike rack I've ever used. Its heavy mind you and can be a little tough to attach and detach, but that being said is easy to lock into the hitch and tighten, reverse also an easy process. I love the ability to swing the arm and gain full access to the hatch on my Highlander and then simply swing it back in place, even with 4 bikes attached, this alone makes this rack well worth the money.


Comments
One year in and this has been a great investment for us. The rack remains in great shape despite heavy use and now when I see other similar racks out there I always compare them and there is no comparison to this Thule rack, very happy we bought this and well worth it.
Jason - 07/12/2022


by:

It’s nice and sturdy rack that is great for jeeps or trucks to be able to maintain full use of the tailgate. What I dislike is that it cannot possibly hold 4 bikes. My wife and I both have gravel bikes with drop down handlebars. And this rack can only accommodate those two bikes plus our 5 year olds small bike with 18” wheels. There’s no way we can even fit 3 adult sized bikes. So that’s very disappointing for the price. I don’t know why they couldn’t have made the horizontal bars that the bikes rest on longer so there would be enough room for 4 bikes.


Comments
When mounting the bikes to the rack, you will need to make sure that the bikes are facing in the opposite directions. For example, you would have the first bike handlebars facing the drivers side, while having the second bikes handlebars facing the passenger side. Then for the pedals, you will want to make sure that they are on opposite sides of each other as well. Four bikes will be snug on the rack, but they will fit on this rack.

The rack is pretty inconvenient when it comes to loading our families bikes. There’s lots of negotiating around how to put them on as we have adapters for kids bikes and it’s just an all around pain. Plus my husbands bike and mine don’t like being near either and it a real hassle getting them on! Also the screw to lock the rack in place has now been stripped so we can’t take the rack off till the end of bike season. It’s not the best product, but it at least gets us from home to the local trails.




by:

Happy to find it in stock. It took a couple of hours to assemble both the rack and the tram. Looking forward to many years of use!


Comments
Still working well!
Francis - 07/26/2021


by:

It came dirt/dusty all over the parts. When I pay for a new product, I kind of expect it to be clean. But no big deal. It works great and seems very sturdy. Most of all, I love the swing-away function.




by:

Received the product in good condition and install was quite straightforward. The rack is solid and the fact that all critical points allow for adjustment and tightening via knob vs needing tools is indeed a plus. It fits snugly in my receiver and tightens down for zero movement on our Subaru Ascent. I’ve yet to load bikes but I can already tell its much better than our previous Saris rack.

There was only one install issue - make certain you place the right locking mechanism into the proper lock. I don’t know why but it uses two separate keys - and the single key lock is the one that goes into the hitch receiver knob - and the instructions were slightly ambiguous on cautioning for that.

Overall it’s heavy duty and should last year’s.




by:

The hitch did not fit tight the way it should because the bolt holes did not match up. Clearly a defect. Was so heavy that it remains a piece of trash that is unusable in my basement.


Comments
This bike rack has two different holes to accommodate different bumpers. You can choose which length you want and then add item # e98942
etrailer Hitch Pin Alignment Collar for Bike Racks, Cargo Carriers, and Tow Bars - 2" Hitches

, so next time you go to put it on, it will stop where you want it without trying to fumble around to find the correct spot.

Excellent swing rack! I can open both rear doors of my 2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500. I couldn’t be happier.




by:

It is heavy, but if you want all of the options that this provides (4 bikes, swing away rack) it's great.




by:

Excellent design and robust construction. Assembly took about 30 minutes, perfect fit on my Grand Cherokee. Put a bike on, actuated the swing and drove around a bit, no vibration, no interference with backup camera. First impressions very positive and I'm very pleased I chose this brand and model.




by:

I ordered this carrier during the pandemic - so it was a hot item and it took a while to get it - but it was worth it. It connected easily and carried the 4 bikes (2 adult, 2 kids) really well. I haven't gone on any really long road trips with it yet - but from the performance thus far would recommend this product.




by:

Purchased this so we could access rear of our minivan with bikes on the rack. The bar is very hard to swing open and get closed and turning the bolt to secure the swing arm is very difficult given the space between the bumper of the car and hitch. The plastic casing around the hitch broke on day one.




by:

Very happy with this bike rack. We've put well over 1,000 miles on so far with three full sized bikes on the rack and no issues. Really appreciate that all the installation and adjustments are tool free, making this very user friendly to install and use. My only concern is around the long term durability of the straps to hold the bikes. They do not feel as robust as the rubber straps on my old Thule rack that has lasted me now over 15 years. Only time will tell long term if these straps will be as durable. Everything else seems quite solid and robust.




by:

I just love my Thule Swing Apex rack. Was able to install it in 10 minutes. It fully swings out more than far enough to
accommodate my Ford F-150 tailgate which was my main reason for purchasing. Great product!
As for etrailer.com, they were simply wonderful to deal with. The first rack I ordered was not able to be delivered quick enough so they gave me a nicer rack for the same price. Then they shipped it out within a couple of days. Great service!




by:

Amazing service and guidance... this works amazing for a large SUV and a family of 4. The swing out function is genius because u can still open and close back of suv.
Great purchase




by:

Regardless of received the wrong item at first time. I notified etrailer and they sent the free return label for returning the wrong item and they shipped the correct item the next day. For a quick response and for this reason I gave it a 4 1/2 stars for customer services. I would recommended etrailer and I would shop at etrailer again in the future.

Thank you for taking care of this matter so quickly.




by:

Easy, good pricing, had a professional install it.




by:

Bike rake is easy to use and perfect for 4 bikes




by:

Hard to manipulate with 4 bikes on,but otherwise worked well on 800 mile trip. Very sturdy.




by:

Assembled the rack today. I haven't used it for any trips yet. It is very difficult to get the two major pieces to align so the bolt can be installed. I was finally able to get it to work.




by:

Fantastic product! Instruction manual could be more descriptive.

Easy assembly. Solid product. You get what you pay for. Easy operation. Great seller, fast shipping.

  • Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Rack that Allows Rear Door to Open on a 2004 Toyota RAV4
    The Rola NV2 does not tilt down so in order to access the cargo area of your 2004 Toyota RAV4 you would have to remove the bikes and fold the arms on the rack down or remove the rack. The only type of bike racks that are going to allow you access to the cargo area and keep the bikes loaded are swing away style racks, see link. Please note that the Softride racks that tilt out would not go out far enough to allow you to open the rear door. I recommend the Thule Apex, # TH9027XT. It swings...

    If you were to park your 2006 Toyota Sienna so that the rear end is facing the driving lane of the parking lot and you had the arms folded down on the Thule # TH9027XT then it is entirely possible that the rack can swing open and not make contract with the adjacent vehicle. On most vehicles, when the rack arms are folded down, the rack would not extend out to the side of the vehicle beyond the side mirrors. The rack does not have a half-way point that it can lock into.

    The first thing you will want to consider is the clearance at the rear of your 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

You will need a tape measure and a straight edge like a yardstick or a dowel. Hold the straight edge against the back of your bumper or if you have a rear-mounted spare tire, hold the straight edge against the back of that, making sure...

    I'd recommend the Thule Apex Swing bike rack part # TH9027XT that you referenced as the best 4 bike rack. It's easy to load/unload, is very secure and stable, and unlike most racks out there can swing out and give you complete access to the rear of the vehicle with bikes loaded.

  • Removing Movement from Thule Apex Swing Bike Rack # TH9027XT
    Swing away bike racks like the Apex Swing # TH9027XT have more moving parts than other bike racks so it's a little more challenging to get all of the movement out of them. What we recommend doing is moving the rack around with one hand while you tighten the anti-rattle device and that will get all of the movement out of it if possible.

    The Thule Apex Swing 4 Bike Rack, item # TH9027XT, should work on your 2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and allow access to the rear of you vehicle, as long as you do not have an over sized spare tire mounted on the rear of your vehicle.

One common issue is that the attachment straps are not clicking into the cradles all the way. Secondly, it is important to not be over-tightened. The straps need to be snug, but any more tension can cause them to get stuck.
