Padded, Ratcheting Hooks

Swagman Chinook 2-Bike Carrier

The Chinook's mast has a pair of ratcheting hooks that hold your bikes securely by the top tube. And because they move independently, you can carry bikes of different shapes and sizes. The hooks have soft padding that won't scratch or scuff your bike's paint.


Sliding Wheel Cradles

Adjustable Wheel Trays

The wheel cradles slide to accommodate bikes with different wheelbases. Hand knobs let you release the cradles to slide along the bike tray and adjust for your specific bike lengths. Each cradle has a ratcheting strap so you can secure your bikes' wheels during transport. If you need to carry fat bikes, there are cradles (sold separately) that let you carry bikes with tires up to 5" wide.


Tilting, Folding Design

Fold ForwardFold Up For Storage

A spring-loaded release lever in the base of the rack lets you tilt the rack down with bikes loaded for cargo area access. You can also use that same lever to fold the rack up against your vehicle for storage. A second spring-loaded release lever lets you fold the mast down so you can fold the rack up.


Complete Security

Threaded Locking Hitch PinThreaded Locking Hitch Pin

The ratcheting hooks have lock cores in the release buttons so you can secure your bikes to the rack. Simply slide the hooks over your bikes' top tubes until they click and lock them in place. There is also a keyed-alike locking hitch pin that secures the rack to your vehicle. The hitch pin works with a built-in anti-wobble device in the shank to eliminate rattle in the hitch receiver during transport.


Removable Adapter Sleeve

Adapter Sleeve

The rack has a removable aluminum sleeve that lets you convert the rack for use in 1-1/4" hitches.

Love my new Swagman Chinook 2-bike rack! Impressive packaging to protect product for shipping. Assembled easily and transports my bike beautifully. I appreciate easy adjustments, multi-folding features, sturdy design and locks: 1) from rack to car receiver and 2) locking bike(s) onto rack.


Comments
Working great a year later. I’ve used it many times to transfer my bike and, multiple times to transport 2 bikes. Very sturdy. In generally keep the rack on the car so the folding feature is great. I have also used the tip away feature to open the back gate of my Ford Escape when the bikes are on the rack. I don’t notice any rust developing so far. I’m very happy with this purchase.

Chose this Swagman Chinook rack to haul our two new ebikes on our Honda Fit. The platform rack made loading the heaver bikes easier then a hanging rack that we had for the family van. Our ebikes did not have a top bar (step through) so the wheel straps and the top bar retaining arm holding the the down bar held each bike securely.


Comments
The rack works like a dream. We upgraded our tow vehicle from the Honda Fit to a chevy traverse. We now use the swagman Chinook on the RV and use the traverse to use the Hollywood 4 bike rack. Originally the rack were reversed so we still can handle up to 6 bikes when we have 6 family memebers or friends travel in the RV.

Works wonderfully on my Chevy Malibu. Only complaint is if you have shift/brake cables running across the top tube of your bike the clamping mechanic will cause those cables to scratch your bike bad. Just something to keep in mind as it’s more of I bought the wrong style bike rack rather then a issue with the bike rack.


Comments
After over a year of use and many trips. Still holds up strong. No issues at all. Just use a microfiber cloth between the cables and the frame to combat the scratches from the tie down bar

Overall value 5/5 Overall features 4.5/5 Overall quality 4/5 Assembly instructions that do not have a parts list??? Instructions poorly (not horribly) written. Luckily it's easy to assemble. Like the overall rack. Fits modern 29" mountain bike without issue.


Comments
Not great, had to upgrade Would rate it a three start product in retrospect. Much of the hardware is cheap. Having a single rail to move wheel cradle son really limits adjustments.

The install was super easy following along with the video. The Chinook is excellent quality. A year later and lots of local trips and two trips from PA to Florida and the rack is still in perfect condition. The key for us is IT DOESN'T RATTLE ON THE HIGHWAY! If I had to listen to 14 hours of rattling on I95 the bikes and rack would have been on the side of the highway. Exceptional value and quality!

This is a great bike rack. A great feature is being able to access the back of the SUV with the bikes attached. The rack provides for a safe and solid (not bouncy) way of transporting our bikes. Best bike rack I have ever owned.


Comments
After a year of heavy use, I still love and recommend this bike rack. It is easy to secure the bikes and is very sturdy, no bouncing when you are transporting the bikes.

Truly grooving on my wife's new Swagman Chinook bike rack. She wanted to be able to transport her nice road bike easily without throwing it in the back of her car, and since a roof rack is out of the question, this Swagman model fit the bill perfectly. It arrived quickly on the anticipated date. Kudos to etrailer.com for the email updates to keep me informed of my purchase. Within one hour, it was installed on my wife's 2014 Mazda3 hatchback. The Swagman is heavy and solid, which is reassuring as it makes me feel confident that it will keep the bikes secure. It also makes me feel like I got my money's worth. A ratchet wrench and Phillip's head screwdriver were the only tools required for the easy install. I did my research before purchasing the Chinook model as I was also eyeballing a very similar Thule rack that was slightly more expensive. I spoke with an etrailer.com expert who gave me the lowdown on both models. Ultimately, the Swagman won out because it has a smaller 'footprint' while extended or folded up ... and also can tilt away from the car for easy access to the hatchback area. Very convenient! FYI: Mazda doesn't make a trailer hitch for the Mazda3 as it's a small car with a small engine and has no business towing anything. Thankfully, the Curt company makes an aftermarket frame and trailer hitch that fits the Mazda3 hatchback perfectly with no drilling. Stupidly, I purchased it from another online company thinking I was getting a good deal. Turns out etrailer.com had it for less with FREE shipping. Oh well ... live and learn. Now I know that etrailer.com is one-stop shopping for bike racks AND trailer hitches. (Full disclosure: I had the garage down the street install the frame as it's easier with a lift) Only snafu: the shipment contained an extra set of keys that I assumed was for the hitch bolt lock (there was also a set of keys on the bolt itself). I spent 15 minutes using those keys trying to figure out how to remove the lock from the bolt to install it on the hitch. The keys just wouldn't turn in the lock. I called etrailer.com and Kevin told me to try the other set of keys ... and they worked. So an extra set of keys came with it that did absolutely nothing ... weird! Obviously, I can't speak to the longevity and durability of the Swagman Chinook 2 Bike Platform Rack as I just installed it. What I can speak to is the sturdiness of it, the ease of the installation and my complete satisfaction with the good folks at etrailer.com.


Comments
Its been a year and my wife thinks her Swagman dual bike rack is the cats meow. Its works as well as the day we purchased it with absolutely no issues. The best thing a bout the rack is how easy it is to put back on the car. My wife, out of the blue, said she wanted to go riding and that she needs the rack. I took it out of the shed, []ed it into the hitch, tightened the bolt with a ratchet wrench, and 5 minutes later, she was good to go!

I ordered the Swagman Chinook 2 Bike Platform Rack on line from etrailer and so far have been very satisfied. The bike rack was delivered in less than a week. Unpacking the rack and assembly was fairly straightforward. I have read some reviews that complained the assembly instructions were a bit vague. I didn't have a problem but can see where others without a mechanical background get confused. The rack is very sturdy, but there is some side to side play in the tilt mechanism. I'm not sure this can be avoided with a rack that folds down. Installing the Curt trunk stabilizing strap takes most of the sway out of the rack. Installation is fairly easy and quick. It takes me 6 - 7 minutes to install the back on my hitch, and to install the bike and be ready to drive away. That seems reasonable to me. So far I've only loaded 1 bike. I've included pictures of my installation on a 2014 Mercedes Benz E350 sedan. Clearance between the bikes, the rack and the car are good. With the bike loaded in the inside, most forward position, I have 6" clearance between the pedal and the bumper. With the bike removed, the center support folded flat and the rack folded up in the storage position, I have 4" clearance between the closest part of the bike rack (the fold down hinge assembly) and the back bumper of the car. I am able to open the trunk of the car without removing the bikes or using the tilt feature, but I do have to remove the stabilizing strap first. Overall, I'm very pleased with the bike rack and think it will serve me much better than my old strap on rack. Since the weather has been cool since getting the bike carrier, I haven't taken any long trips to give it a real workout.

Im still very pleased with the bike rack. Have taken several 200 mile trips with 2 bikes and am very satisfied.

I purchased this rack for my 2014 Subaru Forester. I originally bought a used Thule rack that hung the bikes from the top tube (or the top tube adapter, in the case of my mountain bikes), but my bike hung too low. After much research into various racks, I selected this Swagman Chinook. The ratings were good, the price was right, and it had all the features of a much more expensive rack. The rack was very easy to put together upon arrival, and it took me just a few minutes to adjust it to my mountain bike's size. I really like the fact that the rack locks to the car and also locks the bikes down to the rack. The rack tilts in easily to the vehicle when not in use. It's easy to put the rack on and take off of my car as well. I found the easiest way to load my bike (Niner RIP 9) is to raise the top hook to the tallest height and then lower the top tube hook rack. After I put the bike wheels in the tray and ratchet them down with the padded straps, I swing the top tube rack up and lock it down. If I attempted to load the bike with the top tube rack up, I had to really maneuver the bike around it while trying to get the wheels seated, and worried I'd scratch my car. I took it on a trip up north on a very windy day, and there was no sway. So many great features at a price that can't be beat.


Comments
Pretty good after a year. Discovered I need to re-tighten the hitch bolt where it connects the rack to the hitch - it loosens off with time. Otherwise, an excellent rack.

Great 2 bike rack, it's heavier than I thought but easy to assemble. The bikes are easy to load/unload and they stay very secured while you drive. My only concern is the tire cradles when you're not using the rack they are easy to be stolen. I bought a wire lock to add a little more security. Anyway I'm happy with my purchase.



- S64683

This bike rack is very sturdy, which adds to its hefty weight. Overall, it secures my bikes very well and the locking mechanism for both the hitch and bikes seems to be of good quality. The bikes would probably have to be damaged to be removed from the rack while it's locked, so that's about as much as you could ask for I guess. I bought this to enable transport of my triathlon bike with a disc wheel, which works perfect, even without the rear wheel strapped. The bike secures very snugly, so it doesn't shake around at all, although there is minimal play in the hitch...only very slight sway. For the price, quality, and utility, I'd definitely recommend this rack!

The bike rack is still holding up well. We use it almost every weekend and its been great. No issues whatsoever.

Love my bike rack. I've had it for almost a year now and it's still working wonderfully relatively easy install, sturdy. I clean it every so often so dust doesn't clog up any of the moving parts. But so far so good. I was hit by a car yesterday while the rack was down and closed, and it scraped off two of the wheel racks, but the frame was unmarked and my car was saved any damage. Thankfully. So yes, it is heavy as advertised, but it's also very useful if rear ended since it's so strong. That's a huge selling point for me.

I just assembled it and it was pretty straightforward. I was looking for a rack with locking hitch pin and ideally locks on the rack. Also, wanted a platform rack that could also fit a kids bike. This rack fit the bill and I also bought the security cable that goes along with it. Solid rack and look forward to using it!



- S64683

In the beginning the 1 1/4 hitch trailer did not fit in my car hit hitch, i had to pound it with a hammer to instal and use a screwdriver and hammer to pound it out. What i ended up doing was having a buddy of mine lightly grind the hitch thickness to make it able to slide in and out. Cool hitch once i got it to work.



- S64683
by:

waited a few weeks to review in order to fully use the rack as intended. First off, assembly was a breeze. I mounted this on a 2019 Subaru Outback 3.6 with a 2" receiver hitch. With 2 mountain bikes mounted up the rack showed very little to no sway while driving. The rack is very solidly built. The included wheel trays will fit up to a 3" wide tire (tested with a Specialized Fuse Comp 27.5+). The tilting feature gives plenty of room for the rear hatch to open. Levers for the tilt function and the support bar are solid and lock into place very well. The only real negative with this is that it does block the rear view camera and back up sensors but that is to be expected with something that is mounted right in front of the bumper. Overall, well worth the wait for it to arrive back in stock and highly recommend the Swagman Chinook over the pricier Thule Doubletrack.

Great product! It’s my second year, but I used it almost every day and kept it for the whole season on my car. I removed only for Chicago winter. I did few longer road trips, bikes were always safe. I like the locks, and bikes are pretty stable, even on the highway. The only issue I had, I lost one tray and I had to replace it, but it wasn’t difficult to find and buy another one. Definitely recommend!



- S64683
by:

After reading reviews before I purchased, I was a bit worried about installation but it was quite easy and only took 20 minutes overall. Bikes are easily loaded and very secure once tightened into place. Have not ventured far yet but i am not concerned at all about the security of the rack!

I was looking for a more sturdy bike rack than my previous one so I upgraded to the Swagman Chinook 2 Bike Platform Rack. Product is easy to use although a bit heavier than my other bike rack. I like that the bikes are easily locked without a separate piece of equipment. One of the pieces was chipped and etrailer quickly sent out a replacement part. Very satisfied with the product and the service.

Good - I leave on the truck year round because it is too heavy to remove. Still working well and keeps bikes safe when locked.

I recently purchased an E bike so I needed a heavier rack.The Chinook bike rack has some amazing features. The tilt away feature allows access to the tailgate of your truck or lift gate on your suv which is so convenient! As a 5’4” female I love that the mast on this rack folds down which makes it easier to unload my heavy bike! Thank you etrailer for this amazing product!

Still working great. Have only done a few local trips with two bikes, but I've made two round trips between Maryland and Rhode Island with one bike and haven't had a problem. Holds the bike very stable. I have a CR-V, and the rack folds back nicely with bikes on for opening the rear door. One of our bikes is an old women's 10-speed, and I have to use a frame adapter for it; no big deal. It's a bit heavy but nothing unmanageable.


Comments
Its still working fine. I remove it from the car when not in use because Im worried about it getting rained on and rusty, so its not much fun carrying back and forth tofrom my house, but plenty easy to put in and take out of the hitch. It still seems to be very stable when driving with the bikes on. Following up on my update of a year ago, I had indicated I needed to use an adapter to make an old womens 10-speed fit, but I have since figured out a way to put it on without the adapter.

It work perfectly for us (wife and myself). It is simple to use, secure (lockable), and very stable on the back of the Ford Explorer when driving with or without bicycles loaded. The easy access to the rear of the Explorer is also a great feature.

We just put it together today on our motorhome. It went together fairly easy, but I was hoping it would hold 2 electric bikes, but with the weight limit of 45 pounds a bike only one electric bike will fit. We also have the fat tires on our electric bike and they are a little snug. If I had to do it over again I would get a bigger rack. This will work for now because we only have one electric bike and one mountain bike. The price was right on this rack.

Things I wanted in a platform bike rack: -Rack that could accommodate at least a 49" wheel base -At least 35 lbs per bike capacity, but preferably 45 lbs -A Rack that could fold up and out of the way without hitting the bumper or interfering with the rear hatch opening. -A rack that would have enough clearance to still open the hatch with the bikes mounted and tilted away. -My bike (that I was concerned about fitting): 2017 Trek Fuel EX 7 29er, size XXL. This rack hit all of those requirements! I was a bit hesitant because there was no confirmed fitment for the 2014+ Forester (beyond some measurements), but I ordered it anyway. I'm happy to report that the rack fits perfectly. I attached pictures that show that there is plenty of clearance when the bike is mounted, bike is mounted and tilted away (to open the hatch), and when the rack is folded up (to clear bumper and open the rear hatch). Rack itself: -Assembly and installation was fairly easy. The directions could be somewhat confusing, but read carefully and pay attention and it will be easy. -The cam locks that are used to tilt/fold the rack and to release the vertical arm are much more convenient than having to remove and re-insert a pin. --there is some up and down play from the tilt/fold cam lock, but it actually does not cause excess movement when the bikes are mounted and the car is moving, hitting bumps, turning, etc. -Very minimal movement from the rack while in motion. -The padding on the hooks is fairly hard, so I did buy some pipe insulation to protect the top tube on my bikes. -The rack hooks lock and there is a lock for the hitch pin. No cables necessary! -The wheel trays are very sturdy and easy to adjust. -The price was very reasonable, especially considering that locks are included. Regarding etrailer.com -awesome database of information AND the best prices that I could find. -the support team is also very responsive and helpful. I'm very happy with my hitch rack so far, and I'm very happy to have ditched my roof bike carriers!

  • Recommended Platform Bike Rack for 2015 Jeep Wrangler With Spare Tire on Back
    There is going to be a platform rack that works for you, though it will have to have a very long shank to clear not only the rear bumper but also the more than 11" wide tire on your 2015 Jeep Wrangler. The exact length you need is going to depend on a quick measurement you need to take. Just take something with a straight edge like a yardstick and hold it against the back of your Jeep's spare tire and then use a tape measure to find the distance from the center of your hitch pin hole...

    The Swagman Chinook # S64683 has an adapter that allows it to work with 1-1/4" and 2" Class I, II, and III trailer hitch receivers. The only thing that you will want to take note of is that from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the rack when it is folded up is 6". That isn't a problem for most vehicles so you should be good to go!

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a Trailer with a 1-1/4 Inch Hitch
    The Swagman Chinook # S64683 is not rated for use on the back of a trailer (Motorhomes are fine) so I cannot recommend using it on a trailer. You can instead use the popular BikeWing # B01311. This is the only bike rack that is approved for use on a trailer AND that fits a 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch receiver (there isn't a 1-1/2 inch hitch size).

    When the Swagman bike rack part # S64683 is folded up it has 6 inches from the center of it's hitch pin hole to the nearest part of the rack when folded so it would not clear. The part # SA4412B doesn't fold but would easily clear the rear bumper so it is a viable option as well.

  • Are the Wheel Cradles and Upright Post on the Swagman Chinook Removable
    The upright post and wheel cradles on the Swagman Chinook part # S64683 are removable. However, whenever using a bike carrier it is always recommended to place the bike on the first available spot closest to the vehicle. The liftgate on your 2017 Subaru Forester more than likely has a built-in sensor that will not allow the hatch to open/close if an object is in the way.

  • What is the Weight of the Swagman Chinook Bike Rack?
    I can confirm for you that the Swagman Chinook # S64683 weighs 47 lbs. This is a tilting and folding rack that fits 1-1/4" and 2" hitches, comes with an anti-rattle hitch lock and has a weight capacity of 45 lbs per bike. It holds your bike by the tube with padded ratcheting hooks and by the wheels with ratcheting straps. I've added links to a pair of video reviews on this rack for you to take a look at as well.

  • Does Swagman Chinook Bike Rack Come with Threaded Hitch Pin
    The hitch pin of the Swagman Chinook part # S64683 is threaded and is designed to pull the entire assembly tight to the side of the hitch tube to take out all movement.

  • Is Key Locking the Ratcheting Arms of the Swagman Chinook Required?
    The Swagman Chinook 2-Bike Platform Rack # S64683 does not require you to key lock the arms. The ratcheting arms allow you to secure the bikes in place with or without locking the arms in place. This will allow you to use them for your short commute to the trail without locking, but also gives you the security of locking them to deter theft when taking a longer trip out of town.

    You can't really safely modify the Chinook # S64683 or the hitch. If it is a wheel cradle that is rubbing against the back of your 2012 Mazda 3 then you could remove the end caps, slide the wheel cradles off, and either keep them off or put them on the rack upside down so that when the rack is folded up they would be sticking out away from the back of the vehicle.

  • Recommended 2-Bike Hitch-Mounted Platform Rack for 2017 Toyota Prius Prime
    It looks like the trailer hitch for your 2017 Toyota Prius Prime is most likely a Class I hitch with a 200 pound tongue weight capacity. When choosing the best bike rack for your vehicle and bikes, we just need to make sure that it will be compatible with Class I hitches. I recommend looking at the Swagman Chinook 2 Bike Platform Rack # S64683. This is a great platform-style rack that can carry 2 bikes of up to 45 pounds each and is Class I compatible. The sliding wheel cradles with ratcheting...

  • Recommended Platform-Style Bike Carrier For Ram ProMaster City
    The biggest concern you need to consider is clearance for anything you place in the trailer hitch on the ProMaster City. We have installed a hitch on a 2017 and the distance form the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the rear bumper is three inches. The platform-style bike carrier I recommend is the Swagman Chinook, part # S64683. This 2-bike carrier has a capacity of 45-lbs per bike. The bike carrier has padded ratcheting hooks that hold your bikes firmly in place. The carrier...

  • Recommended Hitch-Mount 2-Bike Carrier for 2016 BMW X3
    Based on the trailer hitches we have available that are custom fit for the 2016 BMW X3, the installed hitch is most likely a Class III with a 2 inch hitch opening. I do still recommend verifying this information. There should be a sticker somewhere on the hitch that lists its class and weight capacity. Hitch-mounted bike racks are class and hitch opening specific, so you will want to make sure that the bike rack you choose will be compatible with the trailer hitch on the X3. For a hitch-mounted...

    On the Swagman Chinook bike rack # S64683 it measures 25 inches from the center of the hitch pin hole to the end of the rack when in the folded down position. The 1-1/4 inch shank bike racks do not bend over time unless they are overloaded. This bike rack is rated for a maximum of 45 pounds per bike. The 2 inch hitch on your 2016 Honda CR-V won't have a problem at all. Keep in mind that the tongue weight capacity of your CR-V is 150 pounds even if the hitch can handle more. You always...

  • Recommended 2-Bike Hitch Rack for Use on 2014 Prius and Motorhome
    Hitch-mount bike racks that will be used on a motorhome must be specially built and must be rated specifically for that application. The reason is that at the rear of a MH there will be greater vertical and lateral stresses applied to the rack than when it is mounted on a car's hitch. The Swagman G10 S64682 and their Chinook # S64683 are both excellent racks but only one is rated for RV use so in order to use one rack on both your Prius' 1-1/4-inch Class I hitch and on the 2-inch MH hitch...

  • Recommended Hitch Mounted Bike Rack With Tilt Away Capability
    First of all, thank you for your service. I have some options for you, but unfortunately the racks that fit over the ball are not able to be folded or tilted and there is not a way to retrofit any kind of tilting kit to them. If you don't need a rack that will allow you to tow a trailer and carry your bikes at the same time, there are many other options for tilting bike racks that fit within a 1-1/4 or 2 inch receiver. I recommend the Swagman Chinook 2-Bike Platform Rack, # S64683, for...

  • Rear Door Access on 2011 Toyota RAV4 When Using Swagman Chinook 2 Bike Platform Rack S64683
    When the Swagman Chinook 2 Bike Platform Rack # S64683 is tilted down with a bike loaded you will not be able to open the side-opening rear door on your RAV4. On a vehicle with a vertical rear hatch, like the Rogue shown in the linked video, you can tilt the loaded rack down as shown to open that hatch. But if the rack is not loaded with bikes, and you have the mast tilted down AND tilt the whole empty rack down you would be able to open the side-opening door.
