Vehicles with unique trunks, including truck tailgates and rear mounted spare tires, can improve rear access with a hitch adapter. By extending VelociRAX hitch racks back 4 inches and down 3.5 inches, most tailgates can fully open and spare tires can live freely on your vehicle while the rack is in the load position. Enjoy added space to the back of your vehicle while your hitch car rack is installed!
Hitch adapters have a built-in anti-rattle system, also used with VelociRAX hitch racks, to eliminate rack movement. Installing a VelociRAX bike rack on other hitch adapters is not recommended due to our unique anti-rattle ability.
Hitch Adaptors Include:
Important - sizes refer to your hitch receiver (2-inch, 2.5-inch or 3-inch) and the adaptor takes them all to 2-inch, which is the required receiver size for the VelociRAX hitch rack. NOT for towing.
3 - 3/8-inch depth past center of hitch pinhole to insert a VelociRAX
2-inch, 2.5-inch, or 3-inch class III hitch with tongue weight capacity of 500 lbs
