Allen Sports Deluxe 4-bike Hitch Mount Rack 2-inch Receiver (542rr) 2680

Review for deluxe hitch mount rack

Price was $73.06.  i just bought a new car. I originally wanted a big ol' suv but i just couldn't do it with the unpredictable cost of gas. I would up going with a station wagon and love it. The only thing is i dont have the space i am used to. The thing is you dont always need all that space. Ok you get the point. I got a bike rack to use when i need it. Well the rack was super simple to assemble and took all of 10 minutes. Once assembled it is just as easy to put on your car. I like the fact that by pulling a pin it leans away from your tailgate so you can use your trunk while it is loaded. I really cant believe the price. I was looking at some that were over 3 times as much and i cant imagine they are that much better. When not is use the arm that holds the bikes folds flat. This is good for storage or if you are leaving it on your vehicle unloaded. In the video i go over assembly, installation, & use. If you have any questions about how its holding up please let me know and i am happy to respond. My only gripe is that i wish the straps that hold the bike on were ratchet straps as opposed to nylon webbing you have to thread (like a backpack strap) it does work though. Other than that no complaints. Oh one more thing. I didn't want to use the nut & bolt to hold this on my hitch and went with a standard trailer pin instead so that it could go on and come off much easier. . Update 12/16: i have used this about a dozen times and am pleased. It is easy to install, remove, and use. My kids bikes have non traditional frames and i was able to secure them just fine without the crossbar adapter. Thanks for all the feedback, i'm glad the review helps! . Update 7/17: still going strong, no issues whatsoever.

Preamble

Looks very nice and sturdy all the way from the hitch to the top. From the receiver to the hitch, that's the problem. It is not firm, it woobles. I think its because of the 1/2 inch hole that it has compared to the standard 5/8 hole that most receivers have. Using a 1/2 inch pin lock leaves too much room. I will have to test with the bikes on and see. I will update afterwards. . Update - mounted 2 kids 16" rim bikes. The bike nests turn 360 degrees to allow bikes to mount easily. The straps are good. The bikes do move from side to side when turning and again that's due to the lock not being 5/8. The bikes don't touch the car at all. They have a nice distance even when the front wheel of the bike turns, it doesn't reach the car. This on a pilot. I would drill and make the hole bigger like others have done, but i think that would accelerate the rusting process. . Brad - nice, i was hoping someone would get it.

Carry your bicycles securely and avoid the hassles of piled bikes or high threshold rooftop mounts, with the allen deluxe 4-bike hitch mount rack. Fitting vehicles with a 2-inch trailer hitch, the allen deluxe hitch mount rack is both easy to operate and super secure for your bikes. Constructed out of steel with a durable black powder finish, the rack is built to last and is backed up by a lifetime warranty by allen. The allen rack boasts a patented tie-down system and individually cradles up to four bikes in the 22-inch carry arms. As easy to install as it is to use, the rack sets up in less than 5 minutes with a no-wobble bolt that holds it still within the hitch. When the rack is not in use, the carry arms quickly drop out of the way and fold down flat with a patented single pin mechanism and the rack tilts up to allow easy access to the lift gate.

Government cutbacks led allen, a harvard-trained physicist, to transform his garage hobby into a new industry. A cycling enthusiast, inventor, and family man, allen had a personal need for a bike-carrying device. On weekends, he would take his sons and wife to cape cod or the white mountains of new hampshire. What proved difficult time and again was the transport of his family's bicycles. Rather than fight through inconvenience with twine and a dinged car, allen sought an answer for himself as well as a market in which he foresaw major growth possibilities. Always a pathfinder, allen took to work in his lincoln, massachusetts garage in search of a more efficient way to transport bikes. Drafting designs during the day and constructing them throughout the night, he put together a model made of electrical conduit, metal strapping, and fire hose casings (for padding). At first, the allens tested the prototype on weekend excursions. Finding the first trunk-mounted rack to be a success, dick started allen bike racks. Dealer acceptance came quickly, and by 1971 allen bike racks were sold nationally through a number of major bicycle distributors. Today, the company owns over three-dozen patents and offers a versatile product line of bike racks while dick's son alex now owns and operates the business.

I had been wanting a hitch-mount bike rack for some time and after doing some homework, i'm glad i decided on this one. It is very solidly made and i've already used it about 4 or 5 times in just about 2 weeks. I've only had my bike and my son's smaller bike but it's more then solid enough for them and it seems like it will be fine with another 2 on it as well. I followed the reviews many mentioned about drilling the hitch bolt hole large enough to use a standard pin vs. The provides bolt. It is just much quicker especially if plan on taking the rack on and off or switching back to a trailer setup. Etc. I love the tilt away and it works very well, even with 2 bikes mounted, just note that gravity is not your friend when doing this. Overall, i am very happy with this rack and would recommend it.

Click to see NoticeAllen Sports Deluxe 4-bike Hitch Mount Rack 2-inch Receiver (542rr)"Only used once but i am very pleased. I went with this model after reading about the plastic adapter to get you to 2". This one only fits 2" hitch. Very heavy duty, tilt to open lift back works nicely. Looking forward to many more trips. I actually bought an anti-wobble clamp only to find this unit came with an anti-wobble through bolt. The bolt did the job! i almost did not buy this product because of the negative wobble reviews - did they not read the instructions?"

CURT 13105 Class 3 Trailer Hitch

The curt class 3 trailer hitch is the most common type of trailer hitch installed on full-size pickup trucks and suvs. It is also found on full-size cars, crossover suvs, minivans and mid-size trucks. That is because the class 3 packs the punch of a heavyweight hitch while still staying light on its feet. This curt class 3 hitch offers a gross trailer weight capacity of 3, 500 lbs. And a comparable tongue weight capacity of 350 lbs. It is designed to be a custom-fit trailer hitch for certain years of the toyota sienna van (to verify your vehicle compatibility, see the curt application guide at curtmfg. Com). It features a round tube frame and comes with all necessary hardware for a complete installation. The 2" x 2" receiver tube opening of this class 3 hitch is able to accept a hitch-mounted accessory, such as a bike rack or cargo carrier, or a ball mount to tow most standard size trailers, including utility trailers, single-horse livestock trailers, boat trailers and large campers. One special feature about the class 3 that is not found in classes 1 or 2 is its compatibility with a weight distribution hitch. When used in combination with a wd hitch, this class 3's gross trailer weight capacity increases to 5, 000 lbs. And the tongue weight capacity to 500 lbs. (note: never exceed the lowest weight capacity of any towing component). Curt class 3 trailer hitches are engineered to be strong and capable, having a quality steel frame and a solid finish. They are put through strenuous testing before being deemed ready for market and come with two coatings - a liquid bonderite coating and a powder coat in high-gloss black - that cure together to form a strong resistance against rust, scratching, uv damage and other wear. Our hitches are our pride, and as such, we back them up with a limited lifetime warranty and a one-year finish warranty.

CURT 22272 Rubber Hitch Tube Cover

If you own a vehicle with a trailer hitch, you know how quickly the receiver tube can get built up with dirt, debris and road grime. It does not take long before inserting a ball mount or hitch-mounted accessory into your trailer hitch becomes more difficult than it should ever have to be. With enough time and moisture exposure, the inside of a receiver tube can become seized up with rust, making it very difficult to use. Keep your trailer hitch's receiver tube clean and protected when not towing with one of curt's attractive and durable tube covers. This curt 2" x 2" receiver tube cover is constructed from quality rubber and mounts on your trailer hitch with a friction fit, meaning no hitch pin or clip is required. At curt, we want to give you a complete towing solution and that includes providing you with the products necessary to maintain your towing equipment. Defend your trailer hitch from the harsh elements with a curt trailer hitch cover.

CURT 13119 Class 3 Trailer Hitch

The curt class 3 trailer hitch is the most common type of trailer hitch installed on full-size pickup trucks and suvs. It is also found on full-size cars, crossover suvs, minivans and mid-size trucks. That is because the class 3 packs the punch of a heavyweight hitch while still staying light on its feet. This curt class 3 hitch offers a gross trailer weight capacity of 3, 500 lbs. And a comparable tongue weight capacity of 350 lbs. It is designed to be a custom-fit trailer hitch for certain years of the honda crv (to verify your vehicle compatibility, see the curt application guide at curtmfg. Com). It features a round tube frame and comes with all necessary hardware for a complete installation. The 2" x 2" receiver tube opening of this class 3 hitch is able to accept a hitch-mounted accessory, such as a bike rack or cargo carrier, or a ball mount to tow most standard size trailers, including utility trailers, single-horse livestock trailers, boat trailers and large campers (note: never exceed the lowest weight capacity of any towing component). Curt class 3 trailer hitches are engineered to be strong and capable, having a quality steel frame and a solid finish. They are put through strenuous testing before being deemed ready for market and come with two coatings - a liquid bonderite coating and a powder coat in high-gloss black - that cure together to form a strong resistance against rust, scratching, uv damage and other wear. Our hitches are our pride, and as such, we back them up with a limited lifetime warranty and a one-year finish warranty.

Reese Towpower 7020500 1-1/4 To 2 Receiver Adapter - 6 Long (Auto Accessory) FAQ.

My only complaint is that this adapter is a little bit long and sticks out from my car a bit too far. I have a 2013 ford see max energy. However, i don't think there are many options for the type of trailer hitch i purchased. Overall i don't have any complaints. It serves it's purpose. However, when i don't have my bike rack on i should probably just remove the hitch extension. Aesthetically it would look better to remove it from the car. -Notice from S. Hadley, Halton

- N. EmilyIt seems like a nice product, but you would probably be happier buying the riser version instead. Most vehicles with a 1. 25" hitch don't have enough clearance for the 2" accessories. E. G.  maxxhaul 70355 1-1/4" to 2" (fits class ii only) hitch adapter with 4" rise and 3-3/8" drop

Needed this to adapt to a useless utv 1 1/4" mini receiver into a normal (but lighter duty) 2" receiver and the extra length actually moved the receiver (outward) to a more convenient location. No regrets here. Again online store shopping convenience for specialty items a plus.

Top allen sports deluxe 4-bike hitch mount rack 2-inch receiver (542rr) Content

The F.A.Q. for allen sports deluxe 4-bike hitch mount rack with 2-inch receiver

I'll get the bad out of the way first: the straps that secure the bikes to the rack are terrible. Even dry and fresh out of the package, they are stiff and don't release, or pull tight, without considerable effort. I can only imagine working these straps after a cold, wet ride. Rubber straps would be a huge improvement, but i suppose they need to give you reasons to step up to their premium rack line. Kids bikes are also very tricky to mount due to the spacing of the support arms. I wasn't able to fit an 20" bmx or a small-frame 26" mountain bike over the arms. The only way to get them on is to have one arm through the frame and the other below the frame, which i'm not crazy about, but it gets the job done. . Now for the good: the rack frame is very robust for the price. I stepped up to the 4-bike model to get the 2" square tube for my class iii receiver and avoid the shims that come with the 2- and 3-bike models. I wasn't excited about using a bolt to lock it into the receiver, but it does a great job of keeping the rack from wiggling. It feels solid and looks good on the car. The tilt-back feature is great, too. My rig has a split tailgate and access to the boot is easy with the rack tilted down. . All in all, a decent rack at a great price. If you plan to use it occasionally like i do, it's a great option. If you plan to ride every day, i would splurge on a better quality rack. . Tip: for a cleaner install, the center post is symmetrical and can be turned around so the labels face the car. Looks way cleaner in my opinion.

A number of questions have been asked here.

I own the $250 thule rack, similar to this one. We needed a 2nd rack so i took a chance on this after reading reviews. The thule is better made, but the extra beef isn't really necessary. Sometimes overbuilt really isn't necessary. This rack is lighter and folds flat for storage, both advantages. There is one issue with this rack noted on a number of reviews. The pin for the hitch that comes with this is about 9/16" and a standard 5/8" hitch pin won't work. For $10 you can get this harbor freight step drill bit set item 60379. In about 3-minutes drill out the hole in this rack to 5/8" and any standard hitch pin will work. That is what i did. And you have a set of step drills for all sorts of projects around the house, especially if you have to drill sheet metal duct, electrical, plastic whatever. . Another issue with this bike rack is it's a little sloppy in the receiver but a couple of wraps of electrical tape solved that one. . Issue 3, have 4-3/8" flat washers to put under the bolt heads and nuts to avoid scarring the powder coat during assembly. No washers included. . The one feature that exists on both the thule and this rack is the hinge pin near the bottom that lets you rotate your bikes away from the vehicle to open a hatch door. While it takes two people to rotate the bikes back up and put the pin back in, this is a valuable feature. . In summary, a great value for the money.

Best bike rack for the money. Easy to assemble, easy to use. It would have been convenient to use a trailer pin instead of a bolt, but whatever it's not the end all. First box came severely damaged and rack had rust on it. I received a replacement right away. Thank you!

Q. Denise, Michigan says

It s very well made, easy to assemble and use. One caveat though, it s moving in a hitch receiver, there is some very small, but still empty space. Ie on each road bump, whole thing is moving up and side. Would it sit firm in a receiver, i would probably feel myself safer. Will try to play w layering.

T. Alba, Wiltshire

I never write reviews, don't have time. This product is outstanding. It mounts easily and quickly. The design is well thought out and the construction is heavy duty. Finally a good product, this looks and feels like it will last for years and years. I have a jeep grand cherokee. The design allows to pull one pin and lock the empty rack in the down position. A different pin allows the vertical beam to tilt 40 degrees or so away from the vehicle to allow the opening of the vehicle hatch with or without bikes on the rack. With four bikes on the rack this may be heavy depending on the weight of your bikes. I have one men's bike and three women's bikes and all fit on the rack ok. I did purchase the cross bar for the women's bikes for around $13 and they work very well with this rack. Overall i am very satisfied and recommend this to anyone.

J. Florence, West Berkshire says

Let me begin by stating that i bought this rack at pep boys after reading one of the negative reviews (there's irony for you). After using the allen deluxe 4-bike rack last week to haul two bikes from baltimore, md to brunswick, me (12 hours), then four bikes from brunswick to acadia national park (3 hours), plus round trips and the time we spent in acadia, i can say this inexpensive rack performed admirably. For the most part, the pros and cons supplied by other reviewers seem fair. (although why you would want to fold down a rack with 4 bikes attached is beyond me, probably because of my lack of strength. ). . Installation: my husband and i had a hitch installed on our 2001 pathfinder specifically to take our inexpensive hybrid bikes to acadia. The guy who installed the hitch, bob, also assembled the rack in about 10 minutes; he's used to assembling thule racks, so he's experienced but it didn't look terribly difficult. Bob didn't like the "sway" and recommended a locking pin that would fix that problem (which another reviewer also mentioned). The locking pin, however, would not go through the bike rack's holes, so bob expanded the hole by re-drilling it (again, another online store reviewer mentioned the need to do this). Clearly a design flaw in a rack specific to a 2" class iii hitch, but it was "easily" corrected by bob who had the tools and know-how. . Use: getting two men's hybrid bikes on the rack was simple. Getting four bikes was a tight squeeze, and it was made more difficult because one of the bike's was a woman's bike. Still, with some trial and error, the four bikes fit. For 3 days the four bikes were put on and off the allen rack with little difficulty. They were extremely stable. We used an assortment of chains and locks to deter any opportunistic thieves who may have been looking for low-end bikes. We were able to access the inside of the suv through the back window which required only a slight movement of one bike's handle bars. Although the rack folds down, you need to remove the bikes and we could get to what we needed without doing this. . Recommendation: if you have the money to spend, have expensive bikes, and/or transport your bikes frequently, buy a more expensive rack with more bells and whistles built in (locking pins, locking cables, etc. ). If, as we did, you need a rack to transport more than two bikes and can't justify or afford to pay at least $250 on hitch rack, buy this one with confidence. Although our need for a 4 bike rack was specific to our vacation trip, we now have the ability to carry 2 bikes easily and up to 4 with a minimum of hassle. All this, for less than $150. We're happy. If we decide to become more than occasional recreational bicyclers, we'll invest in better bikes and possibly a different rack.

I. Powell, Connecticut

Very stable and much more rigid than the allen 2 bike rack. Only problem i have is that the cradles don't move. They are at fixed positions unlike their 2 bike rack. And don't ask me if it will fit on your car. If your car is capable of having a 2 inch receiver hitch (class 4), then it should fit. It will not fit vehicles with spare tires mounted on the back either. It holds four bikes easily, but if i was driving cross country with four bikes, i would remove the pedals to keep your spokes intact. We typically carry three with the rack and it's fine.

X. Monique, Solihull says

I took some time to use this product before i wrote my review because i wanted to be able to help people decide if this was right or wrong for them before spending their hard earned money on this. So for starters, here is how i am using the bike rack. I have it attached to the hitch of my pickup truck and we usually only travel about 10 miles to where we ride. . The pros are as follows. . I bought the 4-bike deluxe rack really cheap. I paid $68. 00 when i bought it and have seen it double in price. My suggestion don't pay more than $68. 00 for it as it will come down again. I have seen this happen recently. . It is fairly solidly well built and i only put it on the truck when i need it so i cannot say how it would hold up long term in the weather. This is definitely made from heavy steel and it is not light weight so that should be a plus as far as durability is concerned. . The padded cradles that the frame of the bike rests in swivels 360 degrees so it accommodates odd shaped frames and girls frames without having to buy the extra support bar to mount on a girls frame style bike in order to use the bike rack. . Instead of a locking pin to attach it to the receiver, it uses a tension bolt (bolt and nut) to remove the rattle. This mounting system is both a pro and a con. The pro is that it does a great job of stopping the bike rack from rattling inside of the hitch. . The bike frame support arms fold down to give somewhat of a lower profile to store it away when removed or so that it takes up less space if you keep it mounted to the vehicle. . So far the straps and buckles have been adequate to keep the bikes secured. I am unsure of how they would hold up if left in the sun and weather everyday. . It also swivels down at the lower joint in addition to the bike support arms folding down. This is in case you would need to open a hatchback type suv rear door. . Cons. . As i list the cons, keep in mind i don't think this particular rack is terrible, i just think you can only design any hitch mount bike rack to do so much. I don't think some of the cons i list can really be much improved upon with this design. . 1st. The bikes mount close together. This means that every bike you add after the first you have to manipulate pedals and handle bars etc. Etc. As they do hit each other as you stack the bikes together. . You will need extra bungee cords to secure spinning wheels and handlebars turning from side to side. Not because the bikes will come loose, but to prevent everything from constantly hitting together and scratching all of your bikes up. Also the bottoms of the bikes swing front to back when starting and stopping if not bungee strapped. . You will get some scratches no matter how carefully you mount things because they are close together and pedals and handle bars stick out. No way to avoid that. . The pivot feature in my opinion is useless when bikes are mounted. It is far too heavy to lower the rack down with 4 bikes mounted if you would need to open a hatchback on an suv type vehicle. (but then maybe its not supposed to be lowered with bikes mounted). I haven't tried this, but it would have to be extremely heavy and i'm not sure it would even lower down enough with bikes mounted to clear an suv door. I have it on a pickup, so no concern of mine. . The con side of the tension bolt is that it isn't quick to remove like a hitch lock. You need 2 tools to loosen it from both sides as it is an aircraft style locking nut. Also i guess if someone wanted to take the time they could unbolt your rack and steal it. I already tried mounting it with a hitch lock, and it allows far too much play in the bike rack swinging and rattling all over the place. So the tension bolt will have to do for now. . Lastly, there is a bit of side to side play where the bike support arms mount to the upright. I think they could have designed this area to be a bit more solid and have less play to it, but i don't think it would be an issue with breaking. . So those are the main points i've noticed form using mine. As far as this style rack is concerned, i could see some minor improvements but i'm not sure how you could vastly improve this type of rack. Read the review and decide if it's right for you.

A. Noguera, District of Columbia

Very sturdy and well made. The part that goes into the car trailer device has a nice steel locking mechanism. The devices holding the bikes are done in plastic but so far has been working well. I dont keep in in the car all the time and we mount the rack in the truck when we need it, so is not subject to the conditios all the time. It is easy to mount and dismount. I definitely recommend this product.

V. Ophelia, Vermont says

Very well made and has some handy features. One of the more useful features is the ability to easily lower the rack so the tailgate can be opened. I purchased a hitch locking pin. Make sure you get a 5/8 size lock pin.

W. Pete, Rutland

Solid, sturdy and reasonably easy to use. I just couldn't bring myself to spend for a thule or yakima carrier and this works fine. It was on the car for a couple of weeks while we vacation a block from the ocean and got some light surface corrosion in a couple of places. Otherwise i'd give it 5 stars. But to be fair, almost any untreated metal corrodes outside in this salty air. . Like all of these carriers, this thing is really not ideal for its actual rated number of bikes. I can get 3 comfortably on it. 4 would be tight and require a lot of padding to keep them from banging up against each other. But this is a flaw in all of these carriers. If you actually need to carry 4 bikes, i'd suggest buying the 5 bike carrier from the same company for a few bucks more.

O. Watson, New Brunswick says

Perfect for 4 bikes on a suv. Easy to put on the suv, easy to get into my trunk, easy to fold up! i love love love this bike rack. I love being able to easily take my kids out to trails or just go by myself. I love not having issues getting into my trunk!

M. Clara, Mississippi

Super easy to use! we love that it folds down so we can access the back hatch of our jeep! all 4 of our bikes fit! the next time we use it, we're going to use straps to keep the wheels from bouncing around as much, but the bikes stayed secure! we did buy 3 adjuster bars to use, but we knew that was required before we bought.

F. Terry, Bayern says

Saved so much money by purchasing this product instead of a more pricey name brand and it works great! i love it when you save money and are happy with the product! . . It attached to the vehicle easily, and we have had three bikes on there without any problems. We could have put a fourth one on there as well. . If you want to hook up a ladies' or girl's bike, you will need to purchase the allen sports tension bar bicycle cross bar (or something similar). This would be the case for any similar bike rack because the bikes are supported from the frame instead of the tires. Also, it would be very helpful to have short bungee type cords about 2-3' long (with hooks on them), or something to secure the bikes a little bit more if you have more than two mounted. . You can leave it on your vehicle when not in use and still have access to open your hatch (when the bikes are not on the rack). To gain access to your hatch, you first fold down the top portion that holds the bikes. Then, it takes only seconds to unhook a very secure bolt. This allows you to move the entire piece away from your vehicle so you can have access to your hatch. . Very convenient, we have kept the hitch mount rack on our vehicle all summer long.

T. Jarvis, Lancashire

This is really a great bicycle rack. I only use it for 2 bikes and would recommend for that many because the 4 slots give a little extra space to comfortably fit 2 without any issues. * i had the 3-bike rack before and that one had a smaller hitch size which fit into a larger adapter and it would sway back and forth and move around a lot because the fit on the adaptor was not as tight as it could be. This 4-bike rack is much sturdier than the 3-bike because it has the larger hitch size that goes directly into the hitch without having to size it up from a smaller size. Because of that the fit is tight and it does not sway like the 3-bike version. I did some comparing of other brands before making a purchase and think this is the best one for the money.
