Trailer hitch Mount Bike Rack that Can Tilt with Bike Loaded


Can the bike rack be tilted down to access the hatch when there are not bikes on it? One of the reviews says this is not possible.


Expert Reply:

It is possible but the bike rack, # TH9043PRO is not rated for it. Tilt the rack when bikes are loaded puts extra stress on the rack where it tilts. It would also be difficult to push the bikes back up and then put the pin in place to hold the rack while you are trying to hold everything in place.

For a 4-bike rack that can tilt out with the bikes loaded you can use the Saris Glide EX, # SA774. I have included a link to a video showing how the rack works.
