This Hitch Platform Bike Carrier provides everything needed to ease installation to the vehicle, simplify loading for any kind of bike, and enable safe and secure transport, as you would expect from a carrier with the word “Premium” in its name. The carrier’s low platform makes raising your bikes into position virtually effortless, and securing them couldn’t be easier. Just rest each wheel inside the cradles. The cradles can be adjusted to suit different wheelbase bikes just by loosening the knobs and moving the cradles along the tube. Push the button on the ratcheting arm with rubberized hook on the center post and push the hook down to firmly grab the frame; the rubberized hook will be gentle to the bike’s finish and the ratcheting mechanism will automatically maintain tension. Secure the wheels to the trays with the Velcro wheel straps and you’re ready to roll.
With the Premium Hitch Platform Bike Carrier, you’ll be able to carry everything from kid’s bikes to road bikes to mountain bikes. Each of the hooks on the center post can be positioned independently, as can the wheel cradles, so you can carry different size and design bikes at the same time. The Premium Hitch Platform Bike Carrier comes in a model that can carry up to 2 bikes with a maximum weight capacity of 90 lbs., or 45 lbs. per bike position, and one that can carry up to 4 bikes with a maximum weight capacity of 180 lbs., or 45 lbs. per bike position. The 2-bike carrier can be directly installed in a 1 ¼” receiver, but a 2” receiver requires use of the included adapter. The 4-bike carrier requires a 2” receiver. To prevent rack sway, the carrier is secured to the hitch receiver with a locking “no wobble” threaded hitch pin. The locking hitch pin will prevent theft of the carrier from the vehicle.
When you need to open the hatch, trunk or tailgate, most hitch mounted carriers are in the way, but not this one. If you need gear from the rear of your vehicle, just remove the clip, pull the pin, and let the center post tilt down. When not in use, the wheel cradle tubes can be folded up for compact storage.
The ratcheting arms can be locked to secure the bikes to the carrier. These along with the locking hitch pin provide complete security so you can transport your bikes with confidence. The Premium Hitch Platform Bike Carrier comes with instructions detailing how to mount the carrier on your vehicle, and how to mount bikes to the carrier. The limited lifetime warranty applies to the original purchaser of the product, and warrants the product against manufacturer’s defects in materials or workmanship.176.40 320.04

We purchased this bike rack over a year ago and we loved it from the first day we used it. It's very user-friendly for making adjustments to fit the bikes. We have had four adult bikes on this rack and not one of them has ever touched each other even on an 8-hour trip. We love that the bikes are not hanging but rather supported by the wheels of the bike. The rack is easy to mount and unmount from your vehicle. However, the rack is a little on the heavy side for a women to mount by herself. For storage the rack folds up and can be placed against your garage wall. We highly recommend this bike rack.7 people found this review helpful.Was this review helpful for you? YesNoShare this review:
