Can etrailer 4-Bike Rack be Locked to Trailer Hitch Receiver


Can the etrailer 4 bike rack be locked to the hitch receiver? If so, can you please tell me what would be needed?


Expert Reply:

Yes, there is absolutely a way for you to lock the etrailer 4-Bike Rack for 2" Hitches # e98913.

This is a really good idea as it will ensure the rack stays on your vehicle where it belongs, and the only thing that you'll need in order to do so is the following

- Threaded Anti-Rattle Hitch Pin Lock # e99047

This will work as both an anti-rattle device and a lock so the rack will be more stable in your 2" hitch as well as being safe and sound. The etrailer 4-Bike Rack # e98913 also has slots in the top plate where the bikes are mounted, so if you wanted to add a cable lock that can thread through those slots to protect your bikes you can do so and even get it keyed-alike with the Anti-Rattle Lock # e99047 by adding the etrailer Cable Lock # e98891.

The only other thing you will want to note is that for hanging racks like this one, if you plan on carrying a small child's bike or a bike with a step-through frame you will need an adapter bar to give the bikes a horizontal mounting point; for that you'll need the Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar # 64005.
