BackSwing

Hitch Rack Swing Adapter
SKU: #8002483
$299.00
 

Now you can rack up the bikes and still access your tailgate. The BackSwing hitch adapter turns your hitch product into an easy-to-use swing-away rack that locks up tight while you're on the road. It works seamlessly with most 2" bike racks, like the HoldUp EVO - as well as almost any other rack using a 2" receiver - to let you swing your fully loaded rack out of the way so you can easily get to your coolers, gear, and Fido.

    LOVE IT

    Review by BA Posted on January 29, 2020

    I put this on the back of my van with a four bike rack. it works perfectly. I can go up to the mountains and have an awesome time riding with friends, put the bikes on the back and still access the rear of my van. I have a GMC Savana 4x4 with a custom built out kitchen in the back, so in order to ea...read more

    Sturdy but not without flaws.

    Review by Gabe Posted on July 31, 2019

    As some other have said this item pushed your hitch back so far that you might not even need the swing functionality by the time you have your item mounted. Additionally I wish the receiver was not closed at the end, it prevents me from pushing my hitch mounted item (in this case a tire carrier) ba...read more

    Backswing for my Jeep

    Review by David Posted on July 17, 2018

    I have a Jeep Wrangler JK and I have the Yakima Holdup racks. For the past few years I have not had access to the back of my Jeep when I have my bike rack on. This solves that problem. It works perfect. I can now get into the back of my Jeep with the rack on and even when I am loaded with bikes....read more

    I hope this review helps other Jeep owners looking for a bike transport solution other than the spare tire mounted variety.

    Great Product..however

    Review by Gayee Posted on June 4, 2018

    Finally got my hands on this product. the product is solid, good materials used and heavy. The weight of this item will lean to the right. When I installed the product and attached my holdup I didn't realize how much it extended the entire system. It looks like if I added the 2+ extension. Plus with...read more

    Not for Sprinter Vans :(

    Review by mfkekoa Posted on May 25, 2018

    Product is rock solid but sadly I had to return it because it does not work with my 2016 Mercedes Sprinter + Hold Up combo. (The reason I was under the impression that this would work was because I watched the Interbike 2017 highlight video on Yakima's Youtube channel and the guy talking about all t...read more
