A fully loaded bike rack represents the potential for good times, fresh air and great family experiences. However, accessing the cargo in your “wayback”, truck bed or Jeep tub can be a real pain when your bikes are in the way. Yakima has been the leader in taking any and all obstacles out of the way, between you and outdoor fun. With the availability of their new BackSwing bike rack hitch adapter, they’ve made it easier to take more stuff, and take more friends.

BackSwing Bike Rack Hitch Adapter
Fully loaded racks can prevent tailgate doors from swinging or dropping open, blocking access to cargo, or Fido. Regardless of what bike rack you have, if it mounts to a 2″ receiver, the BackSwing can help. Adding a BackSwing allows the loaded rack to swing out of the way, essentially converting it into a swing away rack.
The BackSwing allows your bike rack to swing a full 90°, and better yet it locks into place. Your bikes won’t come crashing back into you as you’re fishing a cold one from the cooler. The locking position is easily released by an ergonomic lever.
The BackSwing bike rack swinging adapter weighs a hefty 43 lbs. and includes SKS locks for added security. The beefy design allows it to support 250 lbs. of bikes and rack.
