Will the Replacement Hitch Pin Bolt for Yakima HoldUp Fit on a Toyota Hitch Receiver Tube

Question:

Will the Hitch Bolt and Pin PN. Y8890200 fit my wider 2inch receiver on my Toyota truck? I have a older Yakima Roc 2 Bike Rack, the original Hitch Bolt and Pin is too short. It looks likes like this should fit.

I have actually seen this issue before since the 2 inch receivers on Toyota trucks and SUVs have a slightly larger diameter on the outside of the receiver tube than most typical 2 inch hitches; it's partially the powder coating but the steel itself is also a bit thicker.

With that said, the Replacement Hitch Bolt and Clip for Yakima HoldUp and BigHorn Bike Carriers # Y8890200; they're usually about 2-7/8" overall and the useable length of the # Y8890200 is 3-1/2" so this bolt should work without issues. My contact at Yakima says that it will have the same thread pitch and diameter as the Roc 2 used, but is approximately 1 inch longer overall.

I do recommend measuring the outside of the receiver tube to make sure it's not larger than the 2-7/8" I mentioned, but as long as it's less than 3-1/2" you will be able to use this hitch pin.
