Saris Swing Away Hitch Extender for Bike Racks - 2" Hitches - SAR36VR

Average Customer Rating:  4.5 out of 5 stars   (20 Customer Reviews)

This hitch extender converts your Saris bike rack or hitch accessory into a swing-away rack. It rotates out 90 degrees to provide easy access to the rear of your vehicle. Fits 2" hitches and bike racks that hold up to 4 bikes.

by:

The construction of the unit is above anything that could be made for the relatively light weight of bicycles, even electric ones. The Unit fits so perfect into the existing hitch receiver and the additional bracket that comes in with the unit for the purpose of stiffening the extender up against the hitch receiver makes it supper firm. The unit does not move even one millimeter side to side or up and down.
I am super happy with the purchase.




by:


Excellent swing hitch for the price.
Pin at 90 deg. has some give in it, my only fault.

Fits van perfect. MBS 3500. Able to attach bike rack. Swagman




by:

Very well engineered and made. Just mounted it and will be using on a trip shortly with a bike rack and cargo platform




by:

This thing is big, strong, and gets the job done. My only concern is the spring loaded pin that keeps it open. It's the only piece that seems chincy compared to the rest of the rig. Definitely a quality product and fully loaded the bikes swing clear of the truck tail gate so you can load gear or truck camp etc.

Excellent quality and great help from very knowledgeable staff at etrailer. Works well with Hollywood RV rack

See what our Experts say about this Saris Hitch Adapters



  • Will Exhaust Gases Affect the Saris Access Swing Away Hitch Extender
    The Saris Access Swing Away Hitch Extender for Bike Racks part # SAR36VR is made of steel which is powder coated for protection. It can sit pretty close to the exhaust on some vehicles but this won't create any issues as far as function goes. The most you could experience is a slight discoloration in finish.

  • Will the Saris Swing Away Extender SAR36VR Extend Out Past a 66 Inch Wide Bumper?
    I had the Saris Swing Away Hitch Extender for Bike Racks - 2" Hitches # SAR36VR measured and have some diagrams below that will help. I will say that the hinge will measure about 23 inches from the center of shank and will not extend past your bumper though, so just a heads up on that.

  • Can Doors On Mercedes Sprinter Open All The Way with Saris Swing Away Extender
    I have attached a diagram showing the dimensions of the Saris Swing Away Hitch Extender for Bike Racks item # SAR36VR. The arm extends out 23" from the center of the receiver hitch. It will most likely not be long enough to reach past your rear door with a bike rack attached. None of the extending arms are designed to fully accommodate opening both rear doors. The passenger door may be limited to slightly less than 90 degrees. The drivers side rear door will be able to open to its full...

  • How To Open Rear Door on Jeep with Cargo Basket Installed
    I do have an option for you but the only way you'll be able to open the rear door on a Jeep with cargo basket installed is if you install it on a swing away adapter like the Saris Swing Away Hitch Extender part # SAR36VR. This can then be used with any 2" hitch mounted cargo carrier like the 24x60 etrailer Cargo Carrier for 2" Hitches part # e98874. This option allows you to get in and out of the rear cargo arear without having to remove the carrier. Please note, the adapter will reduce...

  • How to Tell If Rear Hatch of 2004 Toyota Sienna Will Open with Curt Spare Tire Carrier Installed
    The top of the Curt Trailer Hitch Mounted Spare Tire Carrier # c31006 will sit 9-1/2" out and 24" up from the center of the hitch pin hole on your 2004 Toyota Sienna. I don't have a way to verify whether this gives you enough clearance for your rear hatch (I don't think you'll have enough clearance) but you can use the dimensions I gave you as a way to eyeball it or hold your spare at this height to see if this will possibly work for your application.

  • Will The Thule Hitching Post PRo Work On My 2021 Jeep Wrangler With The Spare Tire?
    Measure from the center of the hitch pin hole of your receiver to the back of your spare tire. If it's more than 11 inches then the Thule Hitching Post Pro # TH934XTR will not fit, but I have something to solve that! I love the look and functionality of the Swagman Swing Away System # SAR36VR. This will give you the extra room you need to clear your spare tire on your 2021 Jeep Wrangler and will make the back hatch of your jeep just as accessible as if you didn't have the rack on the back....

  • Does The Thule Helium Fit My Jeep Wrangler 2021
    The Thule Helium Pro # TH9043PRO will work with your 2021 Jeep Wrangler, but the spare tire may cause an issue. You could get this swing away adapter # SAR36VR which will allow you to swing the rack away when you're trying to access the back of your jeep. This is a PERFECT product for Jeep owners. The Thule Helium seems to fit a stock tire on a Wrangler but if you've already upgraded wheels/tires then you may need the swing away adapter.

  • Can I Flip the Saris Swing Away Hitch Upside Down?
    It is not recommend to mount the Saris Swing Away Hitch Extender for Bike Racks item # SAR36VR upside down so that it swings to the drivers side. The weight from the bike and rack when not extended is sitting on top of the receiver mount. If you were to flip this around that weight would be hanging down and supported only by the locking mechanism. This would be putting unnecessary stress on a part not designed for that purpose and it could potentially fail. I recommend the Kuat Item #...

    Yes, you will be able to use the Saris Swing Away Hitch Extender for Bike Racks # SAR36VR with the Thule T2 Pro XTR Bike Rack for 4 Bikes # TH69TX. What we've found is that bike rack manufacturers tend to only "confirm" something works if it has their brand, but the specs for the Saris swing away have provisions enough for the T2 Pro XTR like what you're talking about. The only thing to really keep in mind is that the swing away has a weight capacity of 250 lbs and this bike rack weighs...

  • Is The Saris Freedom Compatible With My Winnebago ERA On A Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van Chassis
    Yes, the Saris Freedom Bike Rack for 4 Bikes - 2" Hitches - Frame Mount, part # SA4414B, will work on your Winnebago ERA. Though it is a motorhome, we consider it a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van for hitch bike rack fits. Please keep in mind when this hitch bike rack is in use on your Winnebago ERA, you might not be able to open the rear doors when the rack is in the tilted down position and you are carrying bikes. This is due to the two doors opening outward instead of a hatch opening upward....

  • Can MORryde Jerry Can Mount be Installed on Swing-Away Arm
    The MORryde Jerry Can Mount for Jeep Wrangler TJ and YJ # MR69MR has a 2" shank so it will fit perfectly with either the Wilco Offroad Hitchswing or the Saris Swing Away Hitch Extender # SAR36VR. I recommend the Saris over the Wilco simply because it has a few extra connection points so you have more peace of mind about the swing-arm being secure while you're driving around. Attached are some review videos for you to check out.

This carrier works with spare tires that have a bolt pattern up to 6 on 5-1/2 inches. So 5 on 4-1/2 inches and 4 on 4 inches will work as well. The carrier can support up to a 121 pound tire.

  • Will Saris Swing Away Hitch Extender Work for Ram ProMaster Van
    The Saris Swing Away Hitch Extender for Bike Racks # SAR36VR will sit about 5" above the center of the hitch pin hole once the arm is swung away so you should have enough room to open up your Ram ProMaster doors. If you'd like something just as strong but with a lower profile check out the Kuat Pivot 2 Swing Away Hitch Extender # PVP20B. Kuat actually built this with ProMaster vans in mind so it's perfect for your application.
