Can You Open the Hatch On a 2013 Toyota Prius With Yakima FullBack 2 Bike Rack

Question:

We are considering the Yakima Fullback part #YO2634 for 2 bikes, but wondered whether we could raise the hatchback trunk with the bike rack installed on it? Thnx for any help you can give,

Helpful Expert Reply:

The Yakima FullBack 2 Bike Rack part # Y02634 is a confirmed fit for a 2013 Toyota Prius and an excellent option. That said, you can't open the truck/hatch with a trunk mount bike rack installed on any vehicle because you risk the two coming into contact and causing damage and the shocks that hold the trunk/hatch open aren't designed for the extra weight of the bike rack.

If you want to be able to open the truck/hatch without having to take off the bike rack then you will need to go with a trailer hitch and hitch mounted bike rack. Please let me know if this is what you want to do.
