Review of the Hollywood Racks Hitch Bike Racks on a 2015 Toyota Sienna


Today on 2015 Toyota Sienna we're going to be doing a test fit on the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE four bike platform rack, part number HR1400.With the bike installed, let's take a close look and show off some of the features. To start, like most platform racks, you can tilt this away from your vehicle. I'm going to come in here and remove this pin and clip like so and then we're going to pull on this pin right here and let it tilt away. However, you are going to find that when you try to access your trunk with it tilted away, the trunk does make contact with the bike that you have installed so you won't be able to access your trunk when you have bikes installed.To tilt it back, just pull it up til it clicks then we'll go and replace our pin and clip. Sometimes pulling up on the back of the rack will help out with that process.The trays are adjustable just by loosening and tightening this hand knob right here you can slide it along the tray or you can slide the tray along the bike rack to accommodate bikes which are different lengths. Our bike has three different points where it's secured.

We have a hook and loop strap on the back wheel right here and we also have one on the front wheel. These straps secure the wheels into the trays. The third point of contact is our padded frame hook right here putting downward force on top of our bike frame, forcing it down into the wheel trays. With these three points of contact, it's going to make sure that your bike is secure. Let's go ahead and remove it.We'll start with the straps.

You just got to tear off the hook and loop and then pull it out. We'll do the same on the other side. Then we'll come to the frame hook. You want to make sure you have a grip on bike as to not let it fall into your vehicle. We're going to push on that trigger and pull up on it and then remove it.I do want to point that even though we can't tilt it away and access our trunk, we can access our trunk while it's installed, just no bikes installed.

We'll fold down this arm like so. Now as you can see we got plenty of space to open up our trunk and get whatever we might need.Now I'm going to provide you guys with a few measurements. First, from the back our Sienna to the outermost point, we've got it on about 43 and a half inches to the back of our vehicle. What's nice is that if you only are taking two bikes out on a day, any given day, you can pull this pin and clip right here and remove the two bike extension, making it a two bike rack rather than a four bike rack. If you only have a two bike rack then you're only adding on about 24 inches to the back of your vehicle.Thanks to that angle shank we got, our ground clearance is going to be 19 inches at the back of the bike rack so you won't have any trouble with bottoming out or going up any curbs.

And then our closest point on the bike rack to the bumper is four and a half inches but it's locked in place and it's not going anywhere.We can fold this up towards our vehicle to conserve on space added onto the back. But as you can see, it locks into place right here however if you're driving on the road and you go over any bumps and you push down, it will make contact just barely with your vehicle so you do want to keep that in mind.Let's come down and take a look at this measurement now with it folded up. We're at 12 and a half inches so if you do drive with it folded up or if you just want to fold it up to park somewhere or in your garage, it's going to take up a substantial amount of space.Now down here we have a standard 5/8ths pin with a lock on the other side. It's a nice security feature so no one can remove your bike rack without unlocking it. The anti-rattle system is back here. Once we've tightened down this handle, that's going to pull on this pin right here to lock it into place and that takes away the shake and play from our bike rack while we're traveling.Now that we've gone over some of those features, let's show you guys how it's performed on our test course fully loaded.
