Our aim was simple: We wanted to make good quality products that were easy to use. Almost 45 years later we are still family owned and operated, with the same goal of building the best products that we can.

Hollywood racks started in 1973 when we began making trunk-mounted racks in the back of our bike shop in Hollywood, California. Our Aim was simple: we wanted to make good quality products that were easy to use and came fully assembled. We earned a great reputation fast and soon began selling our racks to other bike shops throughout California. By the late '70s, we began selling our racks to bicycle companies such as Schwinn, Peugeot and Nashik. In 1981, we closed the bike shop and opened a small factory in loss angels, CA to exclusively make car racks, then relocated to a larger facility in 1988. In 1989, we began exporting our products to Europe, and in the 1990's we expanded our line to include racks for trailer hitches, pickup trucks and spare tires. We have since relocated our offices, R and d and us warehouse to our present facility in the loss angels area with manufacturing in Taiwan. Our products are available in all 50 States and in over 25 countries worldwide.
This heavy-duty platform-style rack is designed as a 2 + 2 system so it can be easily converted to hold either two bicycles or four bicycles. It mounts on a 2-inch hitch and folds flat against the back of a vehicle when not in use. The rack uses padded universal top clamps and adjustable wheel holders. Bikes need simply to be dropped into the wheel holders and clamps slid down onto the frames. Velcro wheel straps add security. To prevent rack sway, the hitch system is "no-wobble/no-tools" and includes a locking pin and 9-foot security cable. The rack carries a limited warranty against defects.

Long story short - this is an amazing rack. There is a Youtube video on the Amazon site that does a good job of showing how to put it together (as the instructions that were sent with this are simply not that good). It took me maybe 35 minutes to have it fully operational and on my vehicle.
This is what I really liked about it:
1) Very sturdy and adjustments available make it so that the bike rack doesn't sway or jiggle at all. If it does - then you are not doing it correctly.
2) The PINS in the rack are all attached to the rack by little strings (so you don't lose anything) AND you know exactly where PINS should go.
3) Easy to load four bikes in less than 4 minutes.
Want I didn't like ....
1) Adjusting the sliding cradles is a little difficult, but once you have them set for your four bikes - then all is good.
2) Unloading and loading requires you to take off the sliding hooks - but not a major deal.
Anyway - save $500 to $600 and buy this over higher end products.
Fast on; fast off; solid; flexible. Only thing is, you do need some room to store it when it's off the vehicle.
What I love is that this rack is versatile. You can put an adult bike and a kid's bike with training wheels on the rack in 2 bike mode, and off you go. You can put 16" or larger bikes on this rack, assuming that you have the seat of the smallest bikes in a position where the frame hooks can go over the seat. The velcro wheel holders appear to be sturdy and help to ensure that the bikes do not move. The fold up and tilt down actions were very easy to accomplish; much better for you and your car than a trunk mount rack.
The 'no wobble' levers for the base unit and the 2 bike extension seem to be awesome. There is no 'play' in the connections and the rack seems to be secure. As previous reviews have stated, this rack is heavy. However, if you store it in two pieces there's no real issue dealing with the weight and length.
For my money it does not look like you will be able to find a better quality product for the money that will allow you to take 1-4 bikes with you on any trip, safely and securely. Also, Hollywood Racks does everyone a solid by including a locking hitch pin AND a 9' locking bike cable. Both locks use the same keys (at least for mine) so you can carry one key and be able to lock/unlock the hitch pin and cable lock as needed.
November 2012 Update:
After making several long trips with this bike rack, I can re-affirm the 5 star rating.

rock solid, no wobbles. easy to adjust. lockable. tiltable - what more do you want?
took 2 adults bikes and 2 kid bikes on a long trip. bit of adjusting for the kids bikes to fit but once on there they were fine.
had one moment pulling out of a gas station and the driveway was really steep. thought id struggle to clear the back but the bike platform clearance at the back was more than enough.
Tilting is a bit heavy with 4 bikes loaded and i needed 2 people to do it. one to take the weight off the platform and the other to pull the pins at the front.
Likes: - good ground clearance
-fit 2 kids bikes (including a todler bike with training wheels)
-twisting lever to tighten connections on hitch so theres no wobble
dislikes: - heavy
whole unit weighs about 40kgs and is pretty large to store, but i dont see any way around that. just an FYI
Only issue was my daughters cruiser bike will not clamp down. Unfortunately the tubes on her bike are oval so adding a tube crossbar adapter is not possible so we resort to bungee cords for her bike. This would be an issue for any rack and her bike...
