Review of the SportRack Escape 3 Hitch Bike Rack on a 2013 Ford Escape


Today on our 2013 Ford Escape, well be test fitting the Sport Rack Escape Three Bike Hitch Mounted Folding Bike Rack for inch and a quarter and two inch hitches, part number a30403. Now to begin our test fit using the included adapter for the two inch hitch, well slide the shank into the hitch, line up the hitch pin hole, and install and tighten down the anti-rattle bolt, with the bolt tight our bike rack is secured to the vehicle. Well now go ahead and give you a few measurements. Our ground clearance here at the back of the bike rack measures 11-3/4 inches and from the closet point of the bike rack here at the mask to the back of the vehicle measures eight inches. We can now pull the pin here at the bottom of the mask which will allow us to bring the mask down. We can then open up our cargo door and as you can see we can still gain access to the cargo area even with this bike rack secured to the vehicle.

Well now move up to the top of the mask where well pull the pin and bring out our dual arms. After reinstalling the pin we can then undo the straps to expose the cradles. Well place the bike into the cradles and bring the straps around securing our bike to the bike rack. Thats it our bike is loaded and were ready to head on down the road. That completes our test fit of the Sport Rack Escape Three Bike Hitch Mounted Bike Rack, part number a30403 on our 2013 Ford Escape..
