Swing Away Adapter Compatible With Saris Freedom 4-Bike Rack For 2 Inch Hitches  


Is there a swing away adapter that is compatible with the SA4414B? I have a 2018 GMC Acadia and looking to purchase a 4 bike platform rack with a swing away option.


Expert Reply:

I have some good news for you because the Freedom rack does have a compatible swing-away adapter that you can use. So what you will need are the following:

- Saris Freedom 4-Bike Platform Rack # SA4414B

- Yakima BackSwing Swing Away Hitch Extender for Bike Racks - 2" Hitches # Y02483

These two are compatible because the BackSwing is designed for bike racks with dedicated 2 inch shanks, which the Freedom # SA4414B has, and the BackSwing also has a total load capacity of 250 lbs, which is enough to mount the Freedom and utilize its full capacity for your bikes.

The BackSwing comes with a lock to secure it to your Acadia's 2 inch hitch, and I do recommend adding a hitch lock to the Freedom to lock it to the BackSwing; for that you will just need the Hitch Tite Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock for Saris Bike Racks # SA3022.
