Q: How many bikes will it carry?
A: The KingJoe 3 carries a maximum of 3 bikes, 90 lbs. Total. See the Fit List and instructions for recommendations for your vehicle.
Q: My car isn’t listed on the fit sheet; can I still use the rack?
A: If your car isn’t listed in the Fit List, you can follow the instructions for “Unlisted vehicles”. We only make fit recommendations based on what we have tried and tested. If you use the Unlisted vehicle instructions, keep in mind that Yakima cannot warranty any installation on any vehicle that is not listed in the Yakima Fit List or on the Joe Fit Sheet.
Q: How do I know if it is secure?
A: Refer to the product instructions for mounting instructions, warnings, and safety checks. Make sure to retighten the upper straps after loading your bikes.
Q: Will it fit my bike?
A: The Joe’s were designed for maximum versatility, however there will be some bikes that are too small or have unique features that prevent it from being mounted. When in doubt, test fit your bike at a dealer before you purchase.
Q: What else will I need to use this rack?
A: Certain vehicles might require the use of Glass Hatch Hooks, so check the Fit List for recommendations for your vehicle. Glass Hatch Hooks are included with your product.
Q: My car has a spoiler; will the KingJoe 3 still work with it?
A: Maybe. First check the Fit List to see if there are any notes for your car regarding spoilers. If we don’t say anything about it, you’ll have to make the call and it will be at your own risk. If any part of the carrier contacts the spoiler, do not use this product. Be sure to test it out with bikes loaded.
Q: Do I need any tools to put the KingJoe 3 on my car?
A: The only thing you’ll need is a tape measure.
Q: The arms seem to move around a bit. Is this normal?
A: Yes. The arms naturally have some play around where they fold. This does not affect bike stability. Do not attempt to lighten up screws to eliminate this play, as over-tightened can cause parts to bind.
Q: I need measurements to fit my car!
A: That's not a question, but you can find Joe fit measurements at: http://www.yakima.com/measurements
