What is Need to Install a Hitch and Use a 2 inch Bike Rack on a 2006 Mazda 5 Sport Wagon


What else do I need to buy/ Screws etc. Adapter for 2inch bike rack


Expert Reply:

The installation hardware, nuts and bolts, are included with the hitches we sell. You can use an adapter like part # HTAD, but using an adapter like this will reduce the tongue weight by 50 percent. This would leave you with 100 pounds tongue weight capacity meaning the combined weight of the rack and all bikes on it must be less than 100 pounds.

Also, if you use a Curt 1-1/4 inch hitch, a Curt stabilization strap, part # 18050, must be used for any non-trailer loads like bike racks or cargo carriers. If the strap is not used, Curt will not warranty the hitch.

I have added a link below to the parts and a page that displays all the hitches available for your vehicle.
