Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have a Yakima Holdup I bought new about 5 years ago. From a functionality standpoint, it basically works as promised. It carries any bike from a kid's bike up to whatever (pennyfarthings and unicycles excluded), and does not contact the frame. Occasionally I have to move the seat of 1 or 2 bikes, as a handlebar from the opposite bike will rub against it, but this is not a big deal.
As my model is several years old, it is not a locking model, but I find the locks that come with bike racks are basically worthless. Get yourself a monster chain & lock if you even remotely feel that your bike might seem attractive to thieves.
My main problems with this rack are twofold. The first, is that the main hold-down clamp for the front wheel needs to be compressed with significant force and enthusiasm. On a few occasions, I have had the hold-down arm come loose from the wheel, fall down onto the road, and drag along the pavement for a while. I never lost a bike, but one time one of my road bikes was found hanging on by the little rear wheel ratcheting strap...fortunately no bike damage! Just remember to really pounce on the front wheel arm when you're securing it to the bike. This looseness of the arm strikes me as a design flaw, but maybe Yakima has fixed it in recent years.
The other issue, is one of general quality of the rack. Although my rack still works, it just doesn't seem to have the same quality I expected from an expensive bike rack. Most of the attachment components are made of plastic, and in the case of the swing-arms, have seemed to stretched, and made the whole unit rather loose and floppy. While I have used this rack a decent amount over the years, I would certainly not call it frequent use. I store it off the vehicle, out of the elements, and in the shade, and generally take good care of all my equipment.
The red plastic bottle opener worked for about 3-4 bottles before the plastic was shredded beyond use!
