Hook adapters expand the fit of Yakima's "Joe" series trunk mounted bike carriers. Adapter serves as an alternative when standard hooks cannot be used for mounting racks on glass windows of hatchbacks or other hard-to-fit vehicles.


I recently Ordered the Saris Bones 2-bike rack and recommended window straps. The glass hatch straps I ordered were not readily available (out of stock), so etrailer called me and recommended a pair of Yakima straps/hooks that would fit as well (same price). I accepted, and within 3 days I got my bike rack and straps. The rack installed quickly and fit great (see picture). Great customer service, selection, and follow-up. Thanks again ,al.


I have been searching for a stable bike carrier for my Hyundai Elantra 5-door hatchback for several years. I finally found the Superjoe Pro 2 with these glass hatch hook adapters. I couldn't be happier!

If you have a hatchback you have to get these with the SuperJoe Pro 2. Great combination.


Well, my order was delivered so fast I think I went back in time. Seriously, it was like a day and a half before my UPS driver was ringing my doorbell, and I even asked him what he was delivering before remembering about my Yakima order. I haven't opened the box yet to ensure that everything is there, and if not I'll be posting again. But I'm guessing, based on the efficiency of order fulfillment, that the order is complete. You folks are setting a high bar; your competitors will hate you.

I still like it!

I ordered an extra set of these Glass Hatch Hook Adapters since my 2008 CR-V requires them for attaching the bike rack to the top and bottom of the hatch. Used them once so far. Worked like a charm. An ingenious solution to the idiosyncratic hatch of the CR-V.

Hi,I have the same model CR-V and was wondering if you actually need the adapters since the top hooks actually fithook into the top metal not glass??Thanks

Hi, M.H.,I dont have time to go back through the steps and see why I decided I needed the adaptors, but I know my first impression was like yours, but then, after trial and error, I concluded I couldnt use the metal hooks without a problem, whether it was closing the hatch or damaging the metal or paint, etc. And youll definitely need the adaptors for securing the rack to the bottom of the hatch. Good luck.

My wife and I purchased the Yakima Kingjoe Pro 2 bike rack for our 2010 Honda CRV and it works great. We did purchase an extra pair of glass hatch adapters to make it easier to secure the rack to the hatch back of the vehicle. It's easy to mount and fits our vehicle like a glove. It's an excellent value for this quality rack and we would recommend it to anyone.


The reason for the purchase was that the rubber part of my strapes cracked and broke into halves, so they wouldn't work. I bought 2 new ones and one has held up great but the other is become destorted and probably will end up doing the same as the ones I had before before too long. I would take a pic but I just put my rack back on my car a couple of days ago.
I have a 2 bike rack. I usually only carry my bike, but the past 3 years I have at times carried 2. I think the extra pressure might be what is causing this to happen.


box was broken when it arrived ..not opened as yet...will advise further later..

  • Glass Hatch Hook Adapter Installation on 2007 Scion tC
    On your 2007 Scion tC, the Glass Hatch Hook Adapter, # Y02612, is installed by first opening your hatch, and then threading the hatch anchor through the gap between the hatch and your vehicle's roof, placing the anchors inside your vehicle and straps on the roof. Then close the hatch. Next attach the straps to the top strap tension adjuster. Last, adjust the tension to secure your bike rack to your vehicle. I've attached a picture of what this should look like.

  • Are Glass Hatch Hooks Needed to Mount KingJoe Bike Racks to 2006 Scion xA and 2007 Toyota Yaris
    I checked with Yakima and to mount the KingJoe bike rack Y02620 or another model KingJoe to the 2006 Scion xA you will not need the glass hatch hook. You will just use the straps as they are. For the 2007 Toyota Yaris sedan it is the same; no glass hatch hook accessory required to mount the KingJoe bike racks!

  • Installing Top Hooks of Trunk Mounted Bike Rack on 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser
    You didn't mention which bike rack you have, but luckily enough one of my co-workers has a PT Cruiser that he uses a trunk mounted bike rack on. He agrees that getting those top hooks in place can be a challenge, but he's found that it's easier if you insert them at the top corners of the hatch, because the gap between the hatch and the vehicle is wider at that point. Once you have them inserted, you can slide them over more toward the center of the hatch. If this doesn't work for you,...

  • Can Curt Stabilization Strap be Used on a Trailer hitch Mount Cargo Carrier on a 2012 VW Jetta
    The Curt strap, # 18050, can be used with a cargo carrier as well as a bike rack. The strap length is adjustable from 20 inches to 35 inches. Based on that you should be able to determine if it can be used for your application. Even though Curt has this strap, you could use any similar strap if this one is not long enough. You will just want to avoid using bungee cords or anything that has similar elasticity because the stretching of that type of material would not work to provide stabilization...

The hook adapters expand the fit of Yakima's 'Joe' series trunk mounted bike racks and serve as an alternative when standard hooks cannot be used for mounting racks on glass windows of hatchbacks.

  • Are Glass Hatch Hooks Included With Yakima KingJoe Trunk-Mount Bike Rack
    The Yakima KingJoe Bike Trunk Mounted Rack includes 2 glass hatch hooks for glass trunk or gate mounts. An additional set of glass hooks, part # Y02612, is required for your RDX. This bike carrier has a weight capacity of 60 lbs for 2 bikes, and weighs just 16.2 lbs. When carrying bikes with alternative frames like kids bikes or women's bikes I recommend using an adapter bar like part # 64005. This attaches between the seat post and the handlebar stem and allows the bike to be carried...

  • Will the Yakima King Joe Pro 3 fit an Acura RDX 2014
    The Yakima KingJoe 3 Bike Trunk Mounted Rack # Y02620 that you referenced is confirmed to fit your 2014 Acura RDX. I would imagine that as long as you didn't overload the rack you would have no problem using it on your leased vehicle. We see a lot of people go this route on leased vehicles where they aren't allowed to install hitches. The included glass hatch adapter is recommended for the upper straps. You will need to get another set for the lower straps as well as only one set is included....

  • Recommendation for a Trunk Mount Bike Rack to Carry 2 Bikes,1 Being a Womens bike,on 2008 Honda CR-V
    For a trunk mounted bike rack for your 2008 Honda CR-V, I recommend the Yakima FullBack # Y02634. This is a trunk mount rack that will hold both of your bikes. To carry the women's bike, you will want to use the Yakima Tube Top Adapter # Y02531. With this adapter, your womens bike will be carried level and provide good ground clearance. This rack has folding arms which makes it easy to store. Be advised, that by having a trunk mounted bike rack on the back of your vehicle, you will not...

  • Is There a Hitch That Fits a 2013 Mini Cooper S
    You will be able to carry bikes with your car, but there is not going to be a hitch that will fit your 2013 Mini Cooper S-Class; the center exhaust you mentioned is too problematic. I recommend going with a trunk-mounted bike rack so long as your Mini is a hardtop. The Yakima HangOut, # Y02637, stabilizes your bikes at three points with anti-sway cradles, secures to your car with six cam buckle straps, and uses padded feet so as not to scratch your Mini in any way. You will need to use...

  • Installing Trunk Mount Bike Rack to Fit 2016 Mazda CX-5
    The Yakima is the FullBack 2 # Y02634 is an approved fit for your Mazda CX-5. The FullBack uses a 4-strap design that allows you to connect the upper straps at the top edge of your hatch lid and the lower straps under the bottom edge. The lower support frame will then sit on the lower portion of the license plate just below the numbers. Another good option is the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 Bike Carrier # HRF2 is a great rack that works well with hatchback vehicles.

    No, The Yakima HangOut 2 Bike Rack part # Y02637 does not require the use of glass hatch hook adapters part # Y02612 on the 2012 Honda Crosstour. I confirmed with Yakima that the glass hatch hook adapters are needed with the "Joe" series Yakima trunk mount racks. The HangOut has an anchor mode that flips the hooks so they fit behind the hatch and act as an anchor. The Yakima HangOut does not come with the steel-inforced security strap to secure the rack to your trunk. That strap is part...

  • Are 2 Sets of Glass Hatch Hook Adapters Needed to Install Yakima KingJoe 3 on a 2004 Volvo XC70
    Some vehicles require a second set of Glass Hatch Hook adapters to mount the Yakima KingJoe Pro 3 # Y02625 but you will NOT need a second set for your 2004 Volvo XC70. However, since it does require the use of the adapters in place of the top straps (one set is included with the rack) then it limits the bike rack to 2 bikes. For a bike rack that does not have the adapter requirement and that will hold 3 bikes I recommend the Thule Passage # TH911XT. I have included a link to a video review...

  • Carrying 3 Bikes on a 2019 Volvo XC90
    Both the 2-bike, part # Y02637, and 3-bike, part # Y02638, versions of the Yakima HangOut trunk mount rack do fit your 2019 Volvo XC90. However, you're correct, the Glass Hatch Hooks, part # Y02612, that are included with the racks can only be used with 2 bikes. So even though the 3-bike rack fits your vehicle you're limited to 2 bikes on it. To carry 3 bikes on your Volvo I recommend adding the Draw-Tite trailer hitch, part # 76194, and a hitch mount bike rack. Hitch mount racks are...

Normally, you'd use a Stabilizing Strap like part # 18050 but like many hatchback vehicles, you're running into a simple problem that is easy to fix. For this, you'll want to purchase part # Y02612 , a set of Yakima Glass Hatch adapters. This part will give you an alternate location to hook the stabilizing strap to that will evenly apply pressure to the padded security bar, removing the need to mount the support...

    The Thule OutWay # TH56BV is not a confirmed fit on your 2017 BMW 220i. For your vehicle, the inside of your tailgate does require a different fit. I recommend the Yakima FullBack 2 Bike Rack - Trunk Mount - Adjustable Arms # Y02634 or 3 Bike # Y02633. When you look at the attached instructions the upper hooks must be changed and installed in anchor mode on your vehicle. This allows the inside of the hatch to carry the weight and not the outside trim. If you already have the OutWay...

The Over the Top series is specficially designed to work on vehicles with hatchbacks, and installs without having to modify the straps or add any glass hatch hooks, part # Y02612 to the setup like the HangOut 3 would have you do. I recommend adding a few accessories to your rack to make using it even easier. A Swagman Frame Adapter, part # 64005 comes in handy...
