Video Transcript for Review of Saris - Hitch Bike Racks - SA3032

Today we're gonna take a look at the replacement 1-1/4" to 2" aluminum hitch adapter sleeve for the Saris 1-1/4" hitch bike racks. Now this will replace the aluminum hitch adapter sleeve for all your Saris bike racks that use an adapter sleeve on the 1-1/4" shank to convert the rack for use on a 2" hitch receiver. This is a black aluminum construction. Does include the bolt and the nut for attaching this adapter to the shank of the bike rack. Overall length on this sleeve is gonna be right at 5-1/2". And this part is made in the U.S.A.

but basically what you would do, you see the inside would be the size of the 1-1/4" shank. Just slide that over, align the bolt hole up with the hole on the shank and then you just put your nut and bolt through there. Tighten it into place.But that should do it for the review on the replacement 1-1/4" to 2" aluminum hitch adapter sleeve for the Saris 1-1/4" bike racks.

Perfect part. Never thought I would be able to replace the lost sleeve on my expensive bike rack. Great customer service. Quick response to my questions. A very good company!!

This adapter allowed me to use a 1-1/4” bike rack with a 2” receiver. Fit is perfect and the rack does not wobble after the hitch pin is tightened. Nicely made and sturdy adapter.



- SA3032
by:

This was a much better option than buying a standard reducer for a 2" hitch (which I tried and was much looser). This part allowed the bike rack to be much more stable. Etrailer has great advice and reviews. I wish I bought my hitch from them just to give them the business.

Still working great, wouldnt change a thing.

Product was delivered on time and would have worked perfectly but it seems my measurements were off!!

Haven't used it yet but it fits with no issues on both the 1 1/4 bike rack and into the 2 inch hitch. Good quality product.

Works great as designed. I used it twice to haul bicycles behind an RV across country with no issues. Great product.

This adapter is beautifully made. However, it does not work with my rack -- the bolt threads are not long enough to engage the clamp. This adapter should have been accompanied by a new, longer bolt. Without it, it's useless.

Both our vintage bicycles weigh in at slightly over 50lbs combined. Switching to this aluminum adapter sleeve made a difference. Virtually no 'sway' while in the class III hitch and is rated for the weight for the bicycles. Great investment.



- SA3032
by:

The hitch adapter is exactly what I had hoped it would be. It allows us to use our smaller shaft , SUV hitch hauler bike rack on our truck also. Avoiding the need to buy another hitch mounted bike rack for hundreds of dollars. Plus it avoids us needing a place to store two bike racks as opposed to one when it's not in use. The price was competitive and fair. The service was prompt and the adapter arrived in less then a week using normal shipping.

I ordered this 2" adapter for an older Saris Thelma 2 bicycle hitch that fit only a 1 1/4" receiver. The package arrived quickly, looks great, fits perfectly and works great. I can now use the bicycle rack in my truck's 2" receiver with confidence.

I'm always nervous about buying online products, this adapter for a Saris bike rack fit perfect on the back of my Jeep

So glad I found this product - what a truly great resource etrailer.com is. The adaptor fit perfectly, the rack fit our van just right and I was a family hero... for a day. Thanks

The adapter functions ok as an adapter but not a well as the adapter that came with the bike rack. There is some play even after the bolt that secures the rack is tightened.

Good original Saris product. Fast delivery and courteous customer service. Thumbs up

this item was exactly what i was looking for. nice machining and coating. the only bad is that it did not come with instructions for the bolt. but over all great product. would defiantly buy again and recommend to other people.

Ask the Experts about this Saris Accessories and Parts

  • Why is There Two Holes on One Side of Saris Aluminum Hitch Adapter Sleeve and One on Other Side
    The extra hole on the side of the Replacement Aluminum Hitch Adapter Sleeve for Saris 1-1/4" Hitch Bike Racks # SA3032 that you referenced is use for attaching the adapter with the included nut and bolt to the shank of the bike rack. Basically the bolt runs through the adapter and then through the shank of the bike rack and then secured with the nut and you are set. The larger hole is then for the hitch pin of the rack.

  • Recommended Hitch Adapter for Yakima Holdup Bike Rack and Cargo Carrier
    The Replacement Aluminum Hitch Adapter Sleeve for Saris 1-1/4" Hitch Bike Racks # SA3032 is not the best option for you. There is not a shank adjustment sleeve like that for your Yakima Holdup. You would either want the 2 inch shank # 8880580 or the 1-1/4 inch shank # 8880581. An adapter sleeve just won't hold that particular rack well. The expander you referenced using like # HTAD is an option, but it will allow more sway as you mentioned and it will reduce the tongue weight capacity...

  • Adapter for Saris Freedom Bike Rack to Fit it to 2 inch Hitch
    According to Saris the adapter part # SA3032 is designed to fit all of their bike racks that have shanks for a 1-1/4 inch hitch to convert them to a 2 inch hitch. There will be a bolt hole right next to the hitch pin hole of your # SA4412B. That is where the bolt goes. See picture.

  • Using a Thule Bike Rack with 1-1/4 Inch Shank in a 2 Inch Trailer Hitch
    Replacement Aluminum Hitch Adapter Sleeve # SA3032 is not a confirmed fit for any Thule racks but there is another option. If your Thule bike rack is one of the following models I recommend using Replacement 2" Hitch Adapter for Thule Doubletrack, Hitching Post Pro, or Vertex Racks Item # 853-7489 and Replacement M6 x 16mm Flat Cap Screw for Thule Bike Carriers Item # 853-5787-02. These are designed to adapt a Thule 1-1/4" shank to a 2" and will not add much length or cause extra wobble....

  • Is Saris SA3032 1-1/4 to 2 inch Hitch Adapter Threaded for Hitch Pin
    The # SA3032 adapter sleeve is not threaded, but the shank of the Saris bike rack (I'm assuming you mean Saris, not Solaris) is threaded. The anti-rattle hitch lock for a Saris bike rack is part # SA3022.

  • Dimensions of Saris Aluminum Hitch Adapter Sleeve SA3032 for Hitch Bike Racks
    The USA-made Saris Aluminum Hitch Adapter Sleeve # SA3032 is 5-1/2-inches long and the center of its hitch pin hole (the larger of the two) is 1-1/2-inches from the end of the sleeve. Both of these dimensions are noted on the linked photo I prepared for you. This sleeve allows installation of a Saris bike rack with a 1-1/4-inch shank in a 2-inch hitch.

  • Using A 4 Bike Carrier On A 1-1/4
    I have an adapter that will allow for you to use a 2" bike rack on a 1-1/4" hitch receiver, however, the Replacement Aluminum Hitch Adapter Sleeve for Saris part # SA3032 is designed for a 2" receiver. In order to mount your Saris Bike Porter Bike Rack on a 1-1/4" hitch receiver, you will need to use an adapter like the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver Adapter part # C45785. However, the maximum number of bikes allowed to be hauled on a Class I hitch receiver is 2 and your tongue weight will...

  • Will Replacement Aluminum Hitch Adapter Sleeve # SA3032 Fit a 2 Inch Hitch on a 2016 BMW X4
    Replacement Aluminum Hitch Adapter Sleeve # SA3032 will fit the 2 inch receiver opening on your 2016 BMW X4. Just double check to make sure the receiver opening is 2 inches square and if it is then the adapter will fit. The corner radius of the hitch should not be an issue.

  • Saris SuperClamp Classic Replacement Converter Sleeve
    We do not sell the bolt individually but we do sell the Replacement Aluminum Hitch Adapter Sleeve For Saris Bike Racks # SA3032. This will fit just like the one you have on currently and will come with a bolt! I recommend bringing the rack and or the shank into your local hardware store to find the right bolt. I could give you the measurements of the bolt but the pitch of the bolt is what will be the most important for the right fit.

  • Hitch Size Options for Saris Hitch Mounted Bike Racks
    The Saris bike racks all use either a 2" hitch connection for a 1-1/4" hitch connection, there is no in-between. Furthermore, the 2" hitch connections are usually composed of a 1-1/4" to 2" adapter therefore this can be removed when the smaller 1-1/4" hitch connection is needed. The adapter is the Replacement Aluminum Hitch Adapter Sleeve for Saris 1-1/4" Hitch Bike Racks part # SA3032. There will not be an adapter needed to use a 1-1/4" Saris bike rack with a 1-1/4" hitch.

  • Replacement Parts for Saris Freedom 2 Bike Rack
    Yes the Replacement Hitch Tite Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin # SA3015 now uses a square nut and can be purchased to replace your old one. The photo we had is out of date. The Replacement Hitch Shank for Saris Freedom Bike Rack # SA20597 does not come with the Hitch Tite Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin. If the 2" adapter has been damaged that can be replaced with Replacement Aluminum Hitch Adapter Sleeve for Saris 1-1/4" Hitch Bike Racks # SA3032.

  • Hitch Bolt for Saris Bike Rack with 1-1/4 Inch Shank Using 2 Inch Receiver Adapter
    Replacement hitch pins are designed to be specific to your bike rack, so knowing which model you have is important to ensure you get the right hitch pin. That said, the Replacement Hitch Tite Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin for Saris Bike Racks with 1-1/4" Shanks # SA3015 will fit the Saris Bike Porter, Freedom, Axis Steel, Axis Aluminum, Cycle-On, T-Rax, Glide EX 4, and T-RAX Sport racks, which covers the majority of Saris racks and it is likely yours is one of these (just be sure to verify).

  • Fit of Saris Freedom Hitch Bike Carrier in 2019 Nissan Rogue Hitch
    Many bikes racks including the Saris Freedom EX # SA4412F that you referenced are smartly designed so that they can be used in either a 1-1/4-inch hitch or a 2-inch hitch. The aftermarket hitches offered for your 2019 Nissan Rogue include both sizes. These 1-1/4-inch Class II and 2-inch Class III hitches appear on the page I linked for you. You can measure the opening on the receiver tube to confirm which size you have (see photo, please). If you do not yet have a hitch on the Rogue...

  • Best Trailer Hitch for a Bike Rack on a 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe
    For your 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe, I recommend using the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C13505. The reason I recommend this trailer hitch for you is because the receiver tube opening is only recessed 3" behind the rear bumper so there should be absolutely no issue with using a hitch mounted bike rack. This trailer hitch is also a custom fit that does not require any drilling as it installs using pre drilled holes in the frame rail.

  • Can Any Cargo Carrier Be Used on a Trailer
    The 20x47 Reese Cargo Carrier part # 63155 has a fixed shank so there won't be any reason that you couldn't use it on the rear of your travel trailer. If it had a folding shank then there would be issues as the added movement from any accessory on a trailer would create problems in the pivot point for the cargo carrier. If you are looking for a trailer hitch to attach to your trailer's bumper then we do have options for you but all of them have a 2" receiver tube. For this, I recommend...
