Easy loading and safe
Review by stacy Posted on March 6, 2019I bought this last year and wanted to see it go through the rigors of actual use. This is a great product and works very well. over time just make sure you grease the pin that releases the bike rack down , it started to get harder and harder to pull the pin.

Best Rack I've Ever Owned!
Review by Jeff Posted on February 5, 2017I am an avid biker and have owned several racks over many years. Racks that mount on the roof are probably the most difficult to load. Racks that mount on the back (hitch, spare tire, trunk) traditionally hang the bikes from the cross bar - easy to load, but the bikes swing and rub against each ot...read moreher and potentially the vehicle. The tires spin in the wind. For some bikes, we had to purchase a false top bar ($40 each) to hang them from that.
This rack attaches the bikes at the wheels. It is low to the ground so you don't have to lift the bikes very high. The wheels don't spin. There is no way for the bikes to touch. The rack securely locks to the vehicle and the bikes securely lock to the rack via an ingenious built-in locking mechanism. The rack is heavy - sturdily built. But it folds up really easily when not in use and you can leave it attached to your vehicle all summer.
We acquired this rack after we were re-ended and our last rack was destroyed, along with my favorite bike. The only thing good that came from that accident was this new rack. I'm glad to have it.
Review by Jenn Posted on May 19, 2015Attach point is held on by a plastic insert with metal threads for the bolt. Those threads failed and the part is easy to remove. However, it is not listed on the website as a replaceable part. We have already lost a pin from the rack so I question a design that has such a high failure rate.
The ticket for a family of 4
Review by Jenny Posted on May 19, 2015Obviously is goes with the Holdup. It is the perfect solution for a family of 4. Hauling 4 bikes is not easy. This rack does the job well. It's very well made. It's not light, which is a good thing. If you can lift bikes you can work it.
Couldn't be happier!
Review by ridinRazorback Posted on May 19, 2015Recently purchased a HoldUp2" and +2 together, and couldn't be happier. Excellent product--alone (HoldUp2") and together (with +2 mounted on HoldUp2"). Compared to my previous carrier by a different manufacturer, the HoldUp2" and +2 are very easy to use: my wife and 14-year old s...read moreon and his friends have no problems or complaints and also use it frequently. It literally only takes 30 sec to secure a bike. As a result, we all ride our bikes a lot more now.
Great rack for 4 bikes!
Review by Brian Posted on May 19, 2015This rack is one stable and tough rack capable of handling 4 downhill bikes each weighing 35 lbs. Can't get any better!
