Dual Folding Arms with Anti-Sway Cradles

Swagman Trailhead 3-Bike Hanging-Style Rack Dual Folding Arms

The Swagman Trailhead has dual folding arms that provide excellent support for your bikes. They slope up to provide ground clearance for steep driveways and bumpy roads.


Swagman Trailhead 3-Bike Hanging-Style Rack Hitch Switch Lever

To fold the arms down, remove the pull pin at the top of the mast. This leaves a smaller footprint, so you can keep the rack on your vehicle to park in your garage. And when stored in this configuration, it doesn't take up as much space in your garage.


Swagman Trailhead 3-Bike Hanging-Style Rack Anti-Sway Cradles

Anti-sway cradles with rubber straps hold your bikes firmly in place. Each set of cradles has three straps that secure your bike along the top tube and one that secures the seat post or downtube. This multi-point contact helps keep your bikes from rocking back and forth, reducing bike-to-bike contact. The soft rubber cradles rotate around the rack's arms to accommodate bikes of different styles and shapes.


Easy Tilting for Cargo Area Access

Swagman Trailhead 3-Bike Hanging-Style Rack Tilting

The rack tilts down without your bikes loaded. This means you won't have to remove the whole rack to access your cargo area for grocery runs and other errands.


Swagman Trailhead 3-Bike Hanging-Style Rack Lower HitchSwitch Lever

To tilt the rack down, pull out the pin at the base of the rack and lower the mast. When you're ready to go, lift the mast up and re-insert the pin.


Threaded Hitch Pin and Hitch Adapter

Swagman Titan threaded hitch pin

A threaded hitch pin is included to help eliminate rattle in the hitch receiver during transport. To tighten the pin in your hitch, use a 5/8" wrench (not included). A clip is also included to keep the pin in place.


Swagman Titan 2-Bike Hanging-Style Rack Hitch Adapter

You can install the rack in a 1-1/4" hitch or in a 2" hitch. To use it in a 1-1/4" hitch, simply remove the adapter with the included Allen key.


Available Security and Adapter Bar


Swagman hitch lock and cable lock

An anti-rattle hitch lock and cable lock (sold separately) are available to secure the rack to your vehicle and your bikes to the rack.


Swagman Bike Adapter Bar

If you have a women's bike, kid's bike, or any other bike without a straight, horizontal top tube, you will need an adapter bar (sold separately) to properly mount your bike. The bar fits between the seat post and handlebar stem post of your bike to create a top tube so your bike hangs level on the rack.

After some good research on different types of bike hitches I picked the Swagman Trailer 3 Bike Rack. It arrived ready to use (THANK YOU!) and this really was just the start of using this great hitch.Taking 3 mens bikes is really easy and it works as promised. The fact that I can lower it to open my trunk is awesome. Good product. Strong and sturdy.




by:

Bike rack is perfect! I have a 1-1/4 hitch on a compact car and it fits perfectly. Installation is easy and the rack itself is great. Great quality straps that hold well. Highly recommend

My previous bike rack was a hitch mounted Yakima. It was sturdy but not well suited for my low Subaru Impreza. It stuck out too far and hung too low so that I had to inch my way down the driveway or over speed bumps for fear of it bottoming out. A roof rack or a rear window mounted rack was not suitable since I wanted to be able to also carry two kayaks. First, I tried to modify my rack by shortening the part that sticks out of the hitch. I tried to saw off about 6 inches so it wouldn't stick out so far but the steel was much too hard. I ended up ruining several metal-cutting blades on my power saw before I gave up. I looked for other rack options. There weren't many out there. But eventually, I found something that met my needs. I purchased the "Swagman Trailhead 3 Bike Fold Down Bicycle Hitch Rack" in 2013 from eTrailer.com. The part that enters the hitch curves up to increase clearance from the ground. It is sturdy and sticks out far enough so I can still open my trunk hatch without having to lower the main vertical bar on the hitch (though I could if I wanted to). It isn't often I am really excited about a piece of gear but this hitch rack has made me worry-free when I transport my bicycle(s) via car. The only thing I don't like is that it is advertised as being a 3 bike carrier but it only fits 2 hybrid bikes. Maybe it will fit 3 skinny racing bikes but for the average rider, don't expect to fit on more than 2. But my experience is that is the case for all bicycle racks.


Comments
Utilizing adapter bars will help with bike fitment. Alternative frame bikes, like your hybrids, will end up sitting cock-eyed or uneven on hanging style bike racks. Adding an adapter bar will help the bikes fit much better on the rack and may even allow you to fit 3 on the rack.

Draw-tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver Class I - 1-1/4
Swagman Trailhead 3 Bike Rack - Tilting

The Draw-tite Sportframe class 1 trailer hitch and Swagman Trailhead 3 bike rack were ordered for a 2017 Honda Fit. The online order and shipping went just as expected. The trailer hitch and bike rack are very heavy duty. I recommend watching the trailer hitch install video before installing, whereas the video is very helpful.

The bike rack has triangles that you can rotate to find the best fit for your bicycle's frame. The rubber straps are thick and secure the bicycles when you pull them tight. This bike rack will stay on the vehicle for 6 months each year. The tilt feature and folding arm feature are must haves for a smaller hatchback.

I am pleased with this purchase, it appears to be good quality and good value.




by:

I used it to transport two bikes from Tn. to Fla. and three on the way back as my wife purchased an ebike while we were down there. The rack is easy to use and works well. I never worried about the bikes while doing 70 on the Hwy. Would recommend this rack Doing business with etrailer was easy and they stand by what they sell. Around 5 stars.


Comments
Year later and the rack is doing its job. Have made several long trip and no complaints. Good buy.

Nice heavy duty rack. Putting it together is quite simple if you read the instructions. I like the ability to use both a 2" or 1 1/4" receiver. etrailer is very easy to deal with.


Comments
Love my Swagmann rack. I will be calling etrailer for an accessory shortly. Good people to do business with.

So far my Swagman Trailhead 3 Bike Rack has been great..the tie down straps are nice and thick and hold the bikes down
very nicely. Nice to not have any swaying and rocking like my old rack.
The only issue I have is that it is to tall. I am 6'1 and really have to lift the bikes up to get them on the carrier.




by:

Overall I am pleased with my bike rack--
What i didnt know was if your car or truck does not have a hitch on it, you need to have one installed ( this costs extra!)
My rack arrived on the date given ( took 3 days). My rack went on EASILY. It does wobble a bit ,and i was told THIS IS NORMAL-- so I have left it alone, I have hauled my bike on it and run over a few potholes to ensure the rack and bike stayed-- BOTH STAYED!
So far I am pleased with mine.
Oh I forgot to include-- I drive a Chevy spark ( tiny car)




by:

Great Bike Rack (Swagman 3 Bike Rack) + we added extra security with purchasing the Deadbolt 10' Long Cable Lock and the Anti Locking Rattle, would recommend to friends and family. We use it with the family or when I am going for my work out ride.




by:

Super fast ship! Items exactly as described. Just had hitch installed. On the bike rack easy to put together and load the bikes. I really like the strapping choices.




by:

This was an early covid purchase...took up bike riding since we were locked in, and wanted to venture out past the neighborhood. Very easy installation, and easy to hang/store when not in use. The swivel feature is a must for access to the hatchback. e-trailer folks were good about communicating order status proactively. i would order from e-trailer again.




by:

My wife and I love this bike rack. We had another bike rack that caused us a lot of problems. But when I found this company’s website I called and spoke to a real person that new everything I needed to know and what I needed to carry my bikes with us on our trips. It was very easy to set up and you can rest assured to know your bikes are safe. If you need a bike rack call them they know what you need.

The bike rack is heavy duty, easy to install, and the straps are very secure! Great bike rack! We purchased this for our son for graduation from high school so he could take a couple of friends biking with him. The price was reasonable for the quality.

It has been great! It is stable, not wobbly, easy to take off and put on. Fast delivery…all around food experience!

I bought a bike rack and this hitch receiver yesterday and installed them both. The hitch is definitely going to be easier to install with 2 people, as lifting it into place is awkward with this hefty thing. The install will also definitely be easier with a raised vehicle. Of course, I did this without raising the car, and I did it all on my own haha. Obviously, this took me longer as a result. I've very little experience working on cars, so I made a conscious effort not to be daunted by lowering the exhaust- I had never even lowered/removed the spare tire before this. Huge props to etrailer for the install video. It helped SO MUCH. The product's printed instructions for this install were so terrible I would have removed a star, but the vids answered all the questions I had.
If you're concerned about tools: I removed the rubber hangers for the exhaust with my hands for the most part, though the one closest the rear of the vehicle, I employed a screwdriver then wrench to pry it off. I'm convinced I could have done this with my fingers as well. The WD-40 was a nice tip. I think it helped slip those off easier.
I ended up having to jack up the car to re-hang the exhaust, as the newly installed tow rig reduced wiggle room under the car, but this wasn't a big deal. I'm going over all this stuff for those of you looking to do your own installation.
To sum up: Love the hitch. Looks great, and is definitely sturdy. 5 stars for sure, because the cons are vastly outshone by the pros.




by:

We've gotten a lot of use out of this bike rack. It fits 3 full sized bikes with no problem. Very well built. It attaches to the car seamlessly and never rocks or bounces as we drive along. It's sn excellent product and I would highly recommend it to anyone. If I were to make one change it would be that the rubber straps be easier to snap into place around the bicycle frame.They are very tight(which is a good thing because they hold the bikes tight to the rack)but as a result they require a man's strength to secure the bikes onto the rack (my wife has difficulty stretching them). You'll be happy you bought it. I am. It's a great bike rack.




by:

It installed nicely. The only issue I had was the push pins kept breaking off since they were brittle. Nothing to do with the hitch. Fit perfectly and the bike holder I got is really nice. Looks of high quality. I've hooked it all up but haven't had time to use it. Hope to take the bikes to the trails this weekend since I sold my truck. Overall I'm very satisfied with my purchase. It was better than I expected for the price.

No issues at all. Ive used it to haul a couple of bikes many times to the bike trails. Works great!

I just received my Swagman Trailhead 3 bike carrier. It was very easy to unbox and install it for the first time on my hitch. The instructions were clear. I did a test run with one bicycle and I had no problems.


Comments
After we sold our SUV our Thule bike rack with a 2 x 2 tongue was no good for the receiver on our new Subaru Outback. I was able to sell the used Thule for the same price of the new Swagman bike rack. The Swagman works just as well as the Thule so I am very happy with the purchase. Thanks for asking.
Bernie - 10/30/2014


by:

Everything has been great so far. One issue I am having is with the hitch bolt and pin. I have a 2020 Subaru Outback and a hitch installed by the dealer. The bolt screws in just fine, but is about 1/4 inch short to allow the hitch pin to be inserted into the bolt. While not a major concern, it does up the anxiety that the bolt may become loose with extended driving. I am currently looking for a solution.


Comments
I do not recommended carrying the bike rack without pinning it in to avoid it coming out of the hitch. It sounds like your hitch may have thicker receiver side walls compared to other hitches. Can you measure the outside measurement of the receiver? You should be able to use Swagman Locking Anti-Rattle part S64029 which has 4-38 usable span.
-- Etrailer Expert Heather A - 06/19/2020


by:

I am happy I purchased the Swagmann 3 bike hitch bike rack last year. It's everything I hoped it would be. The straps are beefy and easy to lock the bike into. Thhe rack doesn't shake much after it is in the hitch. I can take the bike rack out and put it into the hitch very quickly. I went on a trip recently and had two mountain bikes on it and it was no problem. My only complaint is it is hard to put the pin through the rack when I want to lower or raise the horizontal bar that carries the bikes. The rack isnt too close or too far from the car. I have a Toyota Rav4. Otherwise, very good purchase. Would recommend.




by:

The Swagman bike rack is a little less expensive than the "name" brands, but appears to serve just as well. This is our first rack that fits a hitch receiver and we are delighted to have a more substantial rack that provides a little more confidence than a rack hanging on the back door with web straps when on long trips and traveling an interstate speeds. A bonus is that you can pull a pin and swing the rack back/down and open the back door of a small SUV to access luggage. Only improvement I can suggest is to add spacers between the holders for bikes to keep them in place. I keep them from moving around by using bungee cords from the seat stem on a bike to the front of the rack.




by:

This bike rack has been reliable. It is fairly easy to install and remove from my hitch. It is light weight but solidly holds the bikes. One difficulty I have is when I want to drop or raise the arm, the pin is difficult to go in and out. I have wished this was easier many a time. I also bought an adapter bar for the female bike which has worked well. This has been a good bike rack for its value and I recommend it.




by:

Overall, I like this rack. It's solid and sturdy, with convenient points to thread a bike lock through and a delightful tilt feature. I added reflective tape to make it a little more visible.

However, on its first voyage (2,000-ish miles), I had to tighten the bolt where it attaches to the hitch several times, the tether for the tilt pin broke, and the pin that keeps the arms extended was SO HARD to get in (while I had no problem at all with the tilt pin or the lowered arm position). It was no fun wrestling with that pin in the dark, while being eaten by ravenous mosquitoes. (Moral of the story, put the arms up BEFORE you're trying to break camp at 9pm!) I'm hoping it loosens up a little with age.

All that said, I'd buy this rack again. I like the way it collapses for storage, and the "anti-sway" knob adds another layer of security.




by:

This bike rack comes basically fully assembled. All I had to do was flip around the tongue and take off the 2 inch adapter. Slides right in and attaches firmly. There is plenty of clearance between the rack and the trunk to allow for opening.

Works great every time I use it. Sturdy and holds my bike tightly.

  • How Many Bikes Can you Carry with Swagman Trailhead Bike Carrier on a Class I Hitch
    Class I hitches can not handle the additional weight and leverage that the third bike will put on the hitch. The weight of the third bike will be extended pretty far out and away from the hitch pin so the leverage would be too much for the hitch. You could use this Swagman Trailhead 3 Bike Carrier # S63365 that you referenced on the hitch that is on your 2008 Chevy HHR but you should not put more than 2 bikes on this rack at a time. I attached installation instructions for this product...

  • Will the Swagman Trailhead 2 Bike Rack Clear the Spare Tire on a 1997 Honda CR-V
    In order to determine if the Swagman Trailhead 3 Bike Carrier, # S63365, will clear the spare tire on your 1997 Honda CR-V, you will need to take an important measurement. Measure from the center of the hitch pin hole to the furthest out part of the spare tire. If this measurement is less than 13 inches, the rack will work. However, I spoke with my contact at Swagman and they stated that they are switching makers of components for the rack and the specifications might change. If you...

  • Lock Recommendation for the Swagman Trailhead Bike Rack
    The Swagman Trailhead 3 Bike Rack # S63365 does have an anti-rattle device that can work when used in a 2 inch or 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch. When used in a Class I hitch like the # 24831 I can't recommend you ever use more than 2 bikes. Doing so would void the warranty. This is a great rack at a great price so I would recommend it for you. For a lock for this bike rack you would just need the part # S64029 as well.

    I spoke with my contact at Swagman. He stated that the pin used on the Trailhead 3 Bike Rack, # S63365, is a 1/2 inch diameter pin. The Wire Lock Pin, # 2471, that you have referenced is a 1/2 diameter pin. The 3-1/2 inch length is plenty long enough to fit the Swagman rack, so you can use it as a replacement. To verify, just measure from the outside of the hole where the pin goes to the outside of the opposite hole. The distance should be less than 3-1/2 inches.

  • Carrying More Than 2 Bikes with Class I Hitch on 2010 Honda CR-V
    The hitch and bike rack manufacturers all agree that a bike rack installed in a Class I receiver should be limited to two bikes. The weight is not the only issue, any additional bikes added will put the load of the rack and the bikes further away from the receiver opening. As this distance increases, so does the leverage applied to the hitch and its attachment points to the vehicle. This leverage can bend and eventually break the hitch or cause the hitch attachment points to the vehicle...

    With the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 75270, the distance from the ground to the top of the receiver tube is approximately 11-1/4 inches. That would mean you would have about 9 inches from the ground to the bottom of the hitch (these measurements vary from vehicle to vehicle). That is a decent amount of clearance but on a steep enough incline or bad enough dip, some contact could occur. I have included a link to the installation instructions and a video installation. A platform rack with...

  • What Bike Rack Will Work On The Draw-Tite Class I 1-1/4 Inch Hitch # 24796 On A 2010 Nissan Altima
    The Draw-Tite Class I 1-1/4 Inch Hitch, part # 24796, will fit your 2010 Nissan Altima. I am including a link to the installation instructions on the Draw-Tite hitch. The SportRack Evader 3 Bike Carrier, part # A30403XT, will fit a 1-1/4 inch hitch but it has to be a Class II hitch. The Draw-Tite hitch # 24796 is only a Class I hitch. So the bike carrier will not work on the Draw-Tite hitch. A Class I hitch is a 1-1/4 inch receiver and is rated at a maximum tongue weight capacity of 200...

  • Recommended 3 Bike Rack for 2000 Jeep Wrangler
    To determine which 3 bike rack would fit on your Wrangler, you will need to measure the distance from the hitch pin hole in your receiver rearward until the spare tire is cleared (see photo). We have three bike racks to choose from. You will need to choose a rack whose hitch pin hole to the closest portion of the rack dimension is longer than the measurement you took between the hitch pin hole of the receiver and the rear of the spare tire. The Swagman Trailhead, part # S63365 offers...

  • Which Trailer Hitch and Three Bike Rack Is Recommended On 2010 Nissan Murano
    I recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 75647, for your 2010 Nissan Murano. It has the low profile design and will be mostly hidden underneath the vehicle. It is a bolt-on installation with no drilling required. The Dual-Arm design bike racks seem to work good for long distance highway traveling because it gives two attachment points to strap the bike down. That will help give the bikes better support if you encounter any crosswinds when driving on the highway. One of our most popular...
