Video Transcript for Review of Yakima - Hitch Bike Racks - Y8890342

Today we're going to take a look at the replacement adapter sleeve for the Yakima HighLite and DoubleDown Ace bike racks. Now, this adapter sleeve will convert a 1-1/4-inch shank on a Yakima bike rack to fit into 2-inch hitches. It converts the 1-1/4-inch shank on the Yakima HighLite part number Y02438, 8002436, Y02439 and Y02437. Also on the DoubleDown Ace bike rack 8002450, 8002451 and the 8002452. Now, the DoubleDown Ace bike rack must be manufactured after 2014. Basically what happens, this is an adapter sleeve that will attach to the shank with the included M8 bolt and the Allen wrench.You just go ahead and slide this onto part of the shank, put your bolt in there, tighten it down and it will allow you to slide it into a 2-inch hitch receiver.

This adapter sleeve is aluminum construction and it includes everything shown here, the sleeve itself, the M8 bolt and the Allen wrench. But that should do it for the review on the replacement adapter sleeve for the Yakima HighLite and DoubleDown Ace bike racks.

Part works great. I could not find the older version of the part so I ordered the new version (the same size just shift in the screw tread location). I just had to add a screw thread to the bike rack mount bar with a simple tap and die set and was good to go. The bike rack now fits my 2" trailer mount and there is no shaking or wobbling. Very happy with the end result.




by:

It was exactly what we needed for our Yakima bike rack.

The help I received from Heidi to make sure that I had the correct replacement adapter sleeve for my Yakima bike rack, was outstanding! After I received the adapter, however, I found out that the accompanying metric bolt provided by Yakima did not fit my older production model rack. Etrailer representative Preston then contacted Yakima on my behalf who provided the correct fix for my problem.
Outstanding customer service from both etrailer reps! I have made many purchases from this company, and plan to continue to do so.

Just fine!

Perfect replacement for my lost Yakima adapter. This does not fit the older version of the Yakima Doubledown Ace bike rack but can be made to fit by drilling and tapping the existing 1-1/4" receiver to 8mm X 1.25 for which the included bolt fits. Perfect fit, great quality, excellent packaging and fast shipping!




by:

This is the part needed when one little screw snapped on the adapter for my High Lite bike rack. The guys at etrailer helped me figure out the issue and the right part with yakima directly. They were wonderful! Highly recommend them.




by:

Overall I'm very pleased with the entire process and product. Easy to order and part received on time. Only reason for the 4 stars is because of the bolt size. As mentioned in numerous reviews, the older racks used a smaller bolt: 1/4 20, not the M8 that came with adapter. It was easy to go purchase the correct size bolt, but for the extra $1, it probably should be included in the kit. Not sure if this is a Yakima issue or etrailer. Once i got the correct bolt, install was simple and rack is now securely installed on my truck.




by:

Ordered to replace adapter for highlite2. The hex retention screw does not fit. Called etrailer to explain and they were very professional but couldn't really offer help and passed me on to yakima customer service. Yakima explained that they have started making the adapter with a larger hex screw to make the assembly stronger. I gave them my rack purchase info and they sent a replacement spine.




by:

Good part, but the included M8 sized set screw does not fit a 2011 HighLite. A quick visit to the hardware store to pick up a 1/4 x 20 set screw (slightly smaller diameter) resolved the issue. The M8 screw fits more recently manufactured HighLites only. It would be good to include both screws with the product or allow a choice.




by:

Exactly what we needed and etrailer.com is the ONLY place I found this part. I could not even find this on the Yakima website.Shipping was quick too! This part broke a few months back on our bike rack due to an accident. I thought I could fix it myself, but decided to check etrailer.com and could not have imagined the price would be so affordable! etrailer.com will always be our first "go to." The piece took about 5-10mins to put in and it fit exactly.
Thanks again!

As many have mentioned, some of the earlier versions had a smaller screw size than what is included with this adapter. My rack must be one of the earlier ones. No worries, I have metric taps and the necessary drill bits.

I opted to drill and tap the rack to accept the included M8x1.25 screw. Perhaps it will last a bit longer than the smaller bolt/screw, I saw several people wrote that they sheared off the smaller screw. Time will tell, but the adapter appears to be nicely machined and finished. And it's nice that they included the allen wrench to fit the screw!




by:

I didn't need the adapter when I bought the bike rack, because my Subaru had a 11/8" receiver, so must have put it in a good place to save it. Bought a jeep with 2" receiver and couldn't find the adapter so bought a new one.




by:

Great stuff just the shipping got out of hand with original shipper switching to another shipper but besides that great stuff for yakima parts




by:

The part was as described but for some reason, the Allen bolt that was included was too big for my rack. Not a big deal but I ended up using a smaller bolt that I had to make it work. Not sure what size it came with or what the rack is spec'd at.
.Great service! Part arrived one day early.




by:

This is what I was looking for, the product works, but the set srew is to big and I paid for two day shipping and didn't get it until 6 days later.




by:

The product was unbelievable but the service as even better. Extremely happy and very pleased with the quality and availability. I am now a customer for life.




by:

Product works well however this a replacement for the original as the set screw sheared off after a year of use. Original was purchased elsewhere.




by:

I like that the product was accurately described. I will definitely come back to this website for my future truck needs. Trusted site and seller! Greatly satisfied! Thank you!!!




by:
