Recommended 2 Inch Hitch Adapter for Yakima DoubleDown


Can you tell me if this adapter will work with the Yakima Doubledown bike racks? Thanks


Expert Reply:

The Replacement 2" Hitch Adapter Sleeve for Yakima TwoTimer Bike Rack # 8880519 is only compatible with the TwoTimer. Yakima did make a replacement 2" adapter for the DoubleDown, but it has been discontinued. Although this will not work for your bike rack I do have a solution.

The best way to use your 1-1/4" accessories on your 2" hitch is with a hitch reducer like the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver Adapter - 2" (Class III) to 1-1/4" - 4" Long # C45770. Keep in mind, the use of this adapter will reduce the capacity of your hitch by 50%. If the 50% reduction in tongue weight takes you below the weight of your rack and bikes, you could use the Brophy Hitch Reducer 2" to 1-1/4" Trailer Hitch Receiver # HT02 instead. This design will not reduce the capacity of your hitch.

I have attached some video reviews for your reference.
