Pivot 2 Swing Away Extension

Whether you drive a truck, sprinter van, Jeep, or SUV, using a hitch rack to transport your bikes can make it difficult to access the rear of your vehicle. The Pivot Swing Away Extension solves this problem by allowing you to swing your fully-loaded bike rack to the side for clear access to tailgates, rear doors, and hatchbacks.

The Kuat Pivot Swing Away Extension is welded to be tough, holding up to 250lb when loaded, and it attaches to your 2-inch hitch receiver while accepting up to a 4-bike rack. It swings a full 90 or 120-degrees, allowing you to fully open your hatchback or drop down your tailgate for access to gear. A locking anti-rattle hitch pin ensures that the rack stays secure and doesn't give your bike too much of a shake on the ride to the trailhead. The added distance from the Pivot Swing Away Extension system offers a touch of extra room, an added bonus that enables those with rear-mounted spare tires to fit Kuat racks with fewer issues.

  • Swing your bikes out of the way to access the rear of your vehicle
  • Quick-release lever allows both 90 and 120-degree swing away

Huge design flaw in tightening system

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This product seemed great, but as soon as I tightened the cam-based mechanism that secures it to the hitch, the whole cam assembly broke in two. If you look at reviews on other sites you'll see many people with the same issue - unfortunately kuat really dropped the ball with the materials they used for the tightening system here.
