A perfect fit for every bike. The HoldUp is the most versatile of Yakima's hitch carriers and holds the widest range of bike styles, shapes, and sizes. It's perfect for heavier loads and those seeking a little extra peace of mind.

This updated model is stronger than ever thanks to its redesigned arm pivot, and Yakima has added side-to-side adjustability to eliminate bike-to-bike contact.


  • Requires 1-1/4” or 2" hitch receiver.
  • Fits 2 bikes (up to 4 with Yakima's add-on HoldUp +2 - not included).
  • Side-to-side adjustability reduces bike-to-bike interference.
  • StrongArm™ retention securely holds bikes in place.
  • Tilts for easy rear-of-vehicle access and folds when not in use.
  • Zero contact with bike frame.
  • Accommodates carbon bikes, disc brakes, thru axles, and full suspension bikes.
  • Integrated SKS locks - secures bikes to rack and rack to vehicle.
  • Integrated bottle opener.
  • Weight: 49 lbs.
  • Dimensions: L 34.5 in x W 64 in x H 12 in.

Great hitch and superior customer service

What a great and sturdy hitch. Ranked as one of the top three hitch's for the money, it didn't disappoint. Easy to use and install although a bit heavy. The heaviness speaks to the sturdiness of the hitch I think. Initially the box came missing the mounting components and locks. Bike Tires Direct pointed me to the manufacturer for resolution and if I was not satisfied, Bike Tires Direct would replace the hitch. I called Yakima customer service and without question, they sent me the missing parts immediately and I received them two days after I called. Great company that stands behind their product. I would definitely recommend this hitch and company to anyone who's in the market.

Easay to Use

Bought this rack about two weeks ago and overall am very happy with it. Loading and unloading bikes couldn't be much easier and bikes are very secure. Only issue I've had was with the little plastic pinpiece that secures the stabilizer pin.....it didn't hold and the pin fell off en route. by the time I retrieved it, it had been run over by another vehicle(s) and was rendered unusable. Will need to order another pin, but have to say that the design of securing this particular part does not meet with the overall quality of the Yakima hitch rack (will make this piece secure myself). Am very pleased with the pricing I got on this rack from BTD and all things considered, would definitely buy again. Thank you BTD!!

Extremely sturdy and easy to use bike rack - the best out there!

This rack is amazing! It is really easy to use and keeps bikes very secure. It fits all types of bikes, so there is no need to buy additional adapters. Since it does not touch the bike frame, there is no concern about putting nice bikes on it either. Bottom line, I love it!

I tried a typical tree style bike rack prior to this and didn't like it because it touched the bike frames and was difficult to get bikes on and off. In addition, it didn't fit some types of bikes without an adapter.

Excellent product

Holds my bikes firmly in place, easy to use and looks good on my car. I use it for my 29r and my road bike. Has cable locks included. Pricy but worth it.

This bike rack works great.

I purchased this bike rack so I wouldn't have to take my front tire off and make transportation quicker. I like all the features, but it would be better if the cable lock was a little longer. The little plastic piece that attaches the secondary retaining pin with a cable to the frame, broke the first day. Other than that and the price, I am happy with the purchase.

If you want a hitch rack, this is the one to get

This rack holds the bikes very firm, even with my 25psi mtn bike tires I run. Road bikes are very snug as well. I have always been a fan of roof racks, but with a roof that is pushing 7ft on my SUV, it is not easy to put bikes on it. This holds the bikes very secure, they do not sway, like with toptube restraining designs. The only negative I see is a problem with all rear mounted bike racks... a lot more road grim gets kicked up on the bikes than with a roof rack.

Assembly was a breeze. It took longer to unpack the box and remove the protective wrap than it did to screw it together. While it comes with the tools needed I used my ratchets and 1516 socket for the hitch bolt and 5mm allen socket for screwing the crossarms on, this saves a lot of time.

Piece of advice, Yakima isn't very clear with the instructions, but the 2 bike trays are slightly different. Look at the YAKIMA reflective red stickers to figure out which tray is designed to go against the car and which is meant for outside. Outside tray has YAKIMA sticker on side so it can be seen when folded down. The tray nearest to the car has the YAKIMA sticker on the bottom so it can be seen when the rack is folded up.

Solid Rack...

Between my wife and I, we have several different styles of bikes. From race ready road bikes and mountain bikes to Dutch-style city bikes... this rack works with all of them. The connection to the hitch is solid so the rack doesn't jostle around while driving. The ease of use is awesome, too. In a few words... it just works. It's heavy and awkward to move around when putting into the hitch or taking out of it, but I'm a bit weak so it's probably just me. Great rack, get it.

Solid Rack and a Good Purchase

Used the rack for a few weeks now and am pleased with the purchase. Bikes are stable on the car in the rack (as long as you make sure the bolt is tight) and go on and off easy. It's not what you would call light weight and you have to lift it to install it on the car. It doesn't take a strong-man of course, but its not a feather either. But the whole install takes about 5 minutes so is very quick.

Yay, fits my 9er, out grew the older version of this rack when I went big

Love the pull out lock cables for road bike, they are too short for my 9'er.

Love that this fits my larger tires on the new Mtn. bike.

Sorry they switched from the old original steel square tube design, can't plug the extension in from the old rack so have to buy the new style extension to make 4 bike rack.

Also the old design stood up on the floor when in the folded position.

When you take this rack out, and fold the curved receiver piece over, doesn't quite fold over into a nice package. Won't stand up on the floor, takes more space on garage floor because of that.

Good bike rack to use with hitch.

This is the second Yakima hitch rack that I have purchased, the first was for me this one was for my son. It holds bikes securly and when not needed it folds up out of the way. Most of the time I just leave it on my Jeep and only remove it when winter is here and the snow is to deep to ride, 3-4 days here in Oklahoma. It's worth the money I have had mine for 4 years now with no worn out parts or problems.
