Thule Access

Convenient rear of vehicle access by transforming your 2” hitch bike rack into a swing-away style.


Does the job


Keeps bikes stable without knocking each other. Easy tilt pull handle is nice. The security seems ok for hitch and rack. I feel you can still defeat the lock cables pretty easily but I think thats with any rack. The instructions were waste of paper. Tiny pictures only without text explanation. Had to youtube to figure how to fit 5 inch wheels. Almost returned it because it seems you can't. Keys are small and plain without marking. Other Thule products have plastic handle keys with Thule name. Useful when when left in pile of other keys. Otherwise good rack.




I love it.


I bought this to carry all types of bikes. I had a hanging rack before and it was good. The platform however just so much easier to load and secure bikes, no swinging or wheels rolling. It was very easy to assemble and install too.

Good Solid Bike Rack


This tray style rack is very secure when mounted to the vehicle. It does not move at all when you are driving. Bike are easy to put on/off and they also are secure when travelling. It is a very good choice for the money. The only Con I have, two of my friends and I all have a Classic T2, and all of us had at least 1 of the plastic rear tire straps break. So, work of caution is not to pull too tight when securing the rear tire. Other than that, I would have given 5 stars.
