Review of the Yakima StickUp 2 Hitch Bike Rack on a 2012 Chevrolet Impala

Today, on our 2012 Chevrolet Impala, we'll be test-fitting the Yakima Stick Up 2-bike carrier, part number Y02420. Now, to begin our test-fit, we'll slide the shank of the carrier into the opening of the hitch, align up our pinholes, thread our anti-rattle bolt to the pinholes and tighten with a wrench. Now, we'll go ahead and go over few clearance measurements to see how the bike carrier and this vehicle will fit together. There's about 11 inches of ground clearance. Closest part of the vehicle to the closest part of the carrier is about 1/4 inch. With the platform folded up, we've added about 11 inches to the overall length of the vehicle.

With the platform folded down, we've added about 30 1/2 to the overall length of the vehicle. With this bike carrier and this vehicle, you can access the trunk with the platform folded up or by pulling the red knob located at the base of the carrier to tilt the platform down. This will also allow you to have access to your trunk. To load the bike, we'll raise the frame hooks to the top of the mast, raise the mast by pulling the red knob located at the bottom of the mast, and undoing the cradle strap. We'll set the bike into the wheel cradles, adjust the frame hook tightening against the frame and secure with the strap.

That completes today's test-fit for the Yakima Stick Up 2-bike carrier platform style, part number Y02420, on our 2012 Chevrolet Impala.
