Not happy with this Yakima product. I was under the impression that this bike rack can be locked to the receiver. This unfortunately is not the case. By comparison, Thule receiver bike racks have a means where the rack is actually locked to the receiver, Yakima apparently does not. The small pin, which does not go all the way through the receiver, is really the only thing holding it in place......the "locking mechanism" is simply a pressure type system , which can easily be beaten, or more to the point, could become loosened due to road vibration. The entire bike rack can be easily pulled out of the receiver, even when supposedly locked in place. Very poor design. Also, the bike rack does not include any means to lock your bike to the rack....some bike racks have a loop or some means that you can run a cable lock through....again, poor design.


The rack was every thing I thought it would be. Thanks

Two-arm hanging racks can cause difficulties with some frames, wo

This rack doesn't offer rear vehicle access out of the box. However, if your trailer hitch is 2" you can use the Yakima Backswing to add this feature to the rack. Just note the 250 lbs BackSwing weight limit.
