Product Description

Master Lock Bike Carrier is a bike hitch receiver-mounted bike rack with a powder-coated finish. This bike rack features a tubular steel rack that is designed to hold four bikes when it is inserted into a 2" wide hitch receiver. The padded bike cradles eliminate scratches while driving and has safety reflector mounted to the back for driving at night. It's great for the family SUV, CUV, or truck for family weekends.

Customer Questions & Answers

Top Customer Reviews

The Good: great price for a heavy duty (4) carrier hitch rack. Solid construction and folds down on a hinge so you can open your SUV back door without having to remove the rack. Easy to attach and take off, and relatively easy to mount your bikes on and take off too. Has holes in the plates so you can lock your bike on the rack.

The Bad: The lock down plate with screw in lock knobs is not the best design. Bike tend to twist out of the lock down plate mount and can give the impression that bike might actually come out depending on how you mount your bikes and how you drive. Tightening the plate down very tightly to compensate does not help and tends just bend/warp the plates in the middle. Because the rack is designed to mount your bike from top tube of your frame this rack WILL NOT work for women's bikes, or higher end bikes that have heavily angled top tubes type frame (such as a Specialized Stumpjumper FSR or other full high end full suspension bikes). Also the rack, although very solidly built, tends to wabble around more than I'd like when traveling (not that your bikes will be in jeopardy though). Lastly it's not very good with one bike as each lock down plate is meant for 2 bikes and with only one the plate sits at an angle and tends to shift slightly to to righ or left even if you screw the knob down hard. The holes on the plates are mean for padlocks (that it does not come with) so perhaps the padlocks would help keep the plates from shifting around.

Overall a good rack but be aware you get what you pay for.

It fit extremely loose. It does not sit straight off the back of my truck it fits a little off to the right which I think is very strange. My other bike rack was straight but I use that on my camper trailer. All I can say is that it works for the price. You get what you pay for.

GOOD PRICE, NOT THE BEST FOR LOCKING BIKES, I STILL USE A CHAIN TO LOCK BIKES, PROBLEMS WITH TWO DIFFERENT SIZE BIKES, THE PLATES DONT LOCK DOWN EVENLY. NEXT TIME I WILL GET ONE WITH TWO BARS STICKING OUT TO BETTER BALANCE BIKES. I DID TAKE 2 BIKES ON A 400 MILE TRIP AND HAD NO PROBLEMS.

Just used this for the first time. Took 4 bikes on a 4 hour trip and it passed with flying colors. I really like the 1 point (~6" actually) hanging point that others were concerned with. Pretty easy to find a secure spot to load each bike even with my wife and daughters bikes that do not have a perfectly straight middle bar but have slight angles. I don't think the two arm versions would have been able to hold my daughters smaller bike.

Unit is pretty solid and I'm glad I made this purchase.

Great product for the price. Used it many times last year and quite like it. Once assembled only take 3 minutes to put onto hitch and put 2 bikes on. Just as easy to take off and bikes off when get home from ride. Holds bikes very securely so there is no movement even driving at highway speeds. Only complaint is that where hitch attaches to carrier it is a fair bit of movement when driving. I am not too worried about this however because it is securely attached to hitch. I would highly recommend this product!

Bought this bike rack and it works perfect. Amazon was running it on a deal so I like that I got it for even cheaper than it was originally posted. My only complaint is that if your bike isn't shaped just so the bike sits a bit funny on the rack. It still works but you have to secure it from a bar that fits into the plate.

I bought this product and it arrived promptly. Before I opened the box, I noted a statement on the outside that said 'Not recommended for RV or Trailer Use' or something similar. This was my intended use and had not appeared in the online description anywhere. Although I had intended to use the product immediately, I returned it since it was inappropriate.
