Can Hanging Style Bike Racks Tilt Away from Cargo Hatch With Bikes Loaded?


can you tilt the bike rack away with loaded bikes to access the back of a subaru forester


Expert Reply:

The Inno Vertical Hang 4 Bike Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting # INH540 you asked about is not designed to be tilted with bikes loaded. You will need to unload bikes to tilt the rack away and allow that rear cargo access on your 2020 Subaru Forester. Most manufacturers of these hanging style racks will not allow the tilt feature with bikes loaded. This is due to the angle, weight, bikes hitting each other or the ground, etc.

If you have a 2 inch receiver, I recommend adding the swing away # Y02483 or you can instead use a platform style carrier which can be tilted like the Hollywood Racks Destination 4 Bike Platform Rack - 2" Hitches - Frame Mount # HR4000.
