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.

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.

This is a high quality bike rack. Installation was a breeze at 45 minutes. The only reason it took that long was a lock washer snapped when I was torqueing a tray fastener to 17 ft-lbs.

Westernbikeworks is an awesome store. You cant beat their prices, but more importantly, they never make mistakes. Everything is as promised and if they dont have it in stock, there is immediate feed back to let you know, so no additional waiting after you have paid.

They are courteous and professional with all their correspondence. Their price matching program is the best out there and I have never received a damaged product. Faster and easier than shopping at the bike store with no hidden cost or fees.

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
rating

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.

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.

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.

Great hitch rack at a great price! - Fits my girlfriend's bike with flat bars and my 60 cm road bike perfectly!

And at a fraction of the price of Kuat or Thule! Sturdy & well built and built-in cable locks for popping into a coffee shop for a post-ride beverage without the paranoia of leaving loose bikes on the car. (I still keep the car within eyesight but will definitely deter "grab & dash" thieves!)

Highly recommend!

We love our Yakima rack.

We take it on our SUV for day trips and on our RV camper for 8 weeks each summer.

We camp where there are trails.

It is easy to load and very secure. Love the fold up feature.

We have two Stromer ebikes-not the lightest bikes in the world. The Holdup (2 hitch mount) is easy to put on our truck, and easy to put the bikes on it and strap them down. The StrongArms and straps hold the bikes very solidly in place-no rocking or jiggling. Only weaknesses The tilt feature isn't really helpful for getting our bikes on the rack, and it'd be nice if the side-to-side adjustability was a little greater It took a few trips to figure out how to make sure the bikes don't bump each others' handlebars and seats.

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.

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.
