Very happy with etrailer and the add on bike carrier. Excellent communication throughout and felt very comfortable though the shipping and receiving even though it was during shortages and covid.


I have an older Holdup model, but this current one fits just perfect. They have improved the wheel strap design, and include a few extra parts—such as the hitch pin, and pin that locks the rack in the upright position. It was nice to replace a few beat up parts! The keyed locks did not match my original, but Yakima has a process to request new ones. Really happy with it—and glad etrailer doesn’t have an oversized freight charge for shipping!


This rack is heavy once attached to the base unit, but ROCK SOLID! I have no worries of bikes shifting or bouncing around. It takes two people to install and remove the rack when set up for all four bikes. If i am only taking 1-2 bikes, I definitely remove this from the base unit to make it more manageable.


Ultra heavy-duty setup and the weight capacity crushes everything else on the market. Pair the four bike setup (HoldUp and a Plus 2) with a BackSwing for the ultimate bike hauling experience. Works with large and heavy bikes, ala electric.


Great price on the +2 extender for my Holdup. Just installed with no issues, thanks to clear instructions from the website.


Great to purchase from etrailer as always. Prompt service and delivery. Will always do business with them.


Shipping was fast and was very happy with the price. Love the product.


Delivered on the estimated date in perfect condition at a great price.


Great product and service. thanks


Exactly what I expected. Works well and easy quick delivery


very good

  • Yakima HoldUp Plus Two Extension Part # Y02446
    The Yakima HoldUp Plus 2 is intended to be used with the Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike rack, part # Y02443. It slides into the end of the bike rack, and is held in place by a retaining pin. The wheels of the bike rest in the wheel hoops, and the padded ratcheting hook secures the bike from the top of the wheel. I will provide a link to the instructions for the HoldUp. You can find the links below. I have also linked you to some product demonstration videos you might find helpful.

  • Will Black Yakima HoldUp Extension Fit Older Gray Yakima HoldUp Bike Rack
    The HoldUp has 3 generations. The first 2 were gray. I checked with Yakima and the extension, # Y02446, for the current generation black HoldUp is retro-compatible with the HoldUp (2009) 8002433 model. This is the version that only fits 2 inch hitches.

  • Tilt Away Bike Rack Options for 2013 Hyundai Tucson
    Of the options that you have researched and the points you identify, I suggest the Yakima HoldUp # Y02443. This is a highly reviewed product and currently has a 4.8 rating. With your concerns of damage to your bikes painted surface this is good option since it secures the bikes without frame contact.

  • Will a Trailer Hitch for a 2015 Subaru Forester Fit a 2017 Subaru Forester
    I have good news for you! The trailer hitch for a 2015 Subaru Forester is the same as the one for a 2017 Subaru Forester so the factory trailer hitch you have should work for you. You would just need to obtain the appropriate fasteners needed to install it on your vehicle which can usually be found at your local hardware store. Unfortunately, we do not install factory trailer hitches so I would not be able to inform you of the installation process but the option we have for you in the Draw-Tite...

  • Converting Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike Rack for 1-1/4 Inch Receiver for Use with 2 Inch Receiver
    I have a perfect solution for you. To convert your Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike Rack # Y02445 for use with the 2 inch receiver on your new vehicle, you can simply replace the tongue with the Yakima # 8880580. This is compatible with the 1-1/4 inch models to convert it for use with 2 inch receivers and is completely safe to use. It includes the updated latching spring pin. The Plus 2 2-Bike Add-On # Y02446 that allows the carrier to hold up to 4 bikes is not compatible with the # Y02445 for 1-1/4...

  • Recommended Hitch to Carry Yakima HoldUp Bike Rack on 2006 Honda CRV
    For a 2 inch hitch confirmed as a fit for your 2006 Honda CR-V the Draw Tite hitch part # 75690 that you referenced would be exactly what you would need. This will work well with the Yakima Holdup part # Y02443 you are interested in. If you ever needed to expand the bike rack to a 4 bike rack you'd only need the part # Y02446.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver and Platform-Style Bike Rack for 2012 VW Golf
    When one of the available hitches for your 2012 VW Golf is installed, the receiver will be located so that it's hitch pin hole sits about 6 to 7 inches forward of the furthest rearward part of the bumper. Because it's recessed under the bumper pretty far, unfortunately the shank of the Thule TH44VR Helium wouldn't be able slide into the receiver tube far enough for the hitch pin hole in the shank to line up with the hole in the receiver. I do have a combination that would work for you....

  • Will Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike Hitch Rack # Y02443 Clear Rear Spare Tire on Toyota RAV4
    It's easy to find out if a specific hitch-mount bike carrier like the Yakima HoldUp 2 # Y02443 will fit properly at the rear of a particular vehicle. All you need to do is take one simple measurement on the car and compare this to the bike rack's clearance distance from its hitch pin hole. A hitch such as Curt # C13149 will mount on a RAV4 so that its hitch pin hole is between 3-inches and 5-1/2-inches from the back edge of the tire. This varies by vehicle model year and since I do not...

  • What is the Difference Between the 2 Yakima HoldUp Trailer Hitch Mount Bike Racks
    The Yakima HoldUp comes in 2 versions: one only fits 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch receivers, # Y02445, and the other only fits 2 inch trailer hitch receivers, # Y02443. Also, on the 2 inch version you have the option to add an additional 2-bike extension, # Y02446. You cannot add the extension to the 1-1/4 inch version. Other than that they are exactly the same. I have included video review links for both versions for you. If you do not know the size hitch receiver you have, measure the width...

  • Recommended Add-On Kit For Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike Rack
    In order to add an extension to be able to carry an additional 2 bikes on a Yakima HoldUp bike carrier like part # Y02443, you would need a bit more than just part # Y8890279 and the wheel trays. You would need the upright masts needed to secure the bike frame to the extension, so I recommend part # Y02446 to make sure you have all the components needed to be able to carry 2 more bikes.

  • Will Swagman XTC4 4-Bike Carrier # S64665 Allow Rear Hatch Access on a 2013 Toyota 4 Runner
    The Swagman XTC4 4-Bike Carrier for 2-inch hitches, part # S64665, does have tilting upright masts to allow hatch access when not loaded with bikes but the main horizontal structure can drop only to a level position (as with bikes loaded and going down the road). It does not tilt down below the level position. With your four bikes loaded you will not be able to open your rear hatch. A better option for rear hatch access is the Yakima HoldUp 2-bike carrier # Y02443 partnered with the matching...

  • Maximum Tongue Weight Capacity of 2019 Honda Odyssey With Trailer Hitch for Bike Rack
    The tongue weight capacity - or the most a bike rack and loaded bikes can carry - is going to depend on the specific trailer hitch. For your 2019 Honda Odyssey the best hitch to use for a bike rack is the Trailer Hitch Receiver # E98855 which has a tongue weight capacity of 525 lbs. The etrailer hitch # E98855 is the best option to use a bike rack because it offers the best bumper clearance with a distance of just three inches from the hitch pin hole to the bumper, as you...

  • Recommended Hitch Mount Bike Rack for 2 Electric Bikes
    My favorite bike rack to recommend for electric bikes is the RockyMounts Backstage, part # RKY10002. It carries 2 bikes up to 60 pounds each so it'll handle yours just fine. The thing I like about it most is that it swings completely away from the vehicle, with the bikes loaded, to access to rear. Take a look at the video I attached. The only downside is the BackStage is heavy, weighing in over 70 pounds. Another option I like is the Yakima HoldUp, part # Y02443. The HoldUp only weighs...

    The Thule EasyFold XT 2 E-Bike Platform, part # TH903202, does not have an add-on for additional bikes, but we do offer an alternative that will get you what you need. It's the Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike Rack, part # Y02443, combined with its 2-bike add-on, the Plus 2 Add-on, part # Y02446. These two together will allow you to carry up to four backs and maintain the same tilt-away and fold-up features of the Thule XT 2. I've included a video review of the two Yakima parts together.

    To convert your Yakima HoldUp 2 Bike Rack for 2" Hitches # Y02443 so that it will fit a 1-1/4" hitch receiver you need the Replacement Tongue # 8880581 along with the Hardware Kit # Y90195.
