Premium 4 bike Carrier for 1 1/4 ” HitchCarry your bicycles securely and avoid the hassles of piled bikes or high threshold rooftop mounts, with the Allen Premium 4-Bike Hitch Mount Rack. Fitting vehicles with a 1.25-inch trailer hitch only, the Allen Premium Hitch Mount Rack boasts the new Quick Carry Arm Release, making it both easy to operate and super secure for your bikes. Constructed out of steel with a durable black powder finish, the rack is built to last and is backed up by a lifetime warranty by Allen.

The Allen rack boasts a patented tie-down system and individually cradles up to four bikes in the 22-inch carry arms. A separate tie down strap is included with the rack and eliminates lower bike movement completely. As easy to install as it is to use, the rack sets up in less than 5 minutes with a no-wobble bolt that holds it still within the hitch. When the rack is not in use, the carry arms quickly drop out of the way and fold down flat with a patented single pin mechanism and the rack tilts up to allow easy access to the lift gate.

About Allen Bike Racks:
In 1967, after a few years of working on the aerospace technology for the Apollo missions, Dick Allen was out of a job. Government cutbacks led Allen, a Harvard-trained physicist, to transform his garage hobby into a new industry. A cycling enthusiast, inventor, and family man, Allen had a personal need for a bike-carrying device. On weekends, he would take his sons and wife to Cape Cod or the White Mountains of New Hampshire. What proved difficult time and again was the transport of his family’s bicycles. Rather than fight through inconvenience with twine and a dinged car, Allen sought an answer for himself as well as a market in which he foresaw major growth possibilities.

Always a pathfinder, Allen took to work in his Lincoln, Massachusetts garage in search of a more efficient way to transport bikes. Drafting designs during the day and constructing them throughout the night, he put together a model made of electrical conduit, metal strapping, and fire hose casings (for padding). At first, the Allens tested the prototype on weekend excursions. Finding the first trunk-mounted rack to be a success, Dick started Allen Bike Racks. Dealer acceptance came quickly, and by 1971 Allen Bike Racks were sold nationally through a number of major bicycle distributors. Today, the company owns over three-dozen patents and offers a versatile product line of bike racks while Dick’s son Alex now owns and operates the business. What started out as a small garage run operation now operates three warehouses nationally, two factories abroad, and has products sold in more than a dozen countries around the world.

Allen Bike Rack Product works very well. Have three bikes that fit perfect and don’t see why a fourth wouldn’t fit without a problem. Wish the hole for bolt going through receiver was bigger as the lock I bought was too big for the hole that was drilled in the rack. Would recommend for purchase.

Satisfactory This bike mount definitely is worth the price paid. I did not carry 4 bicycles yet, just only 2, but so far so good. Besides, it is easy to mount and assemble. The folding mechanism works good and allows you to open your car’s rear door easily. I really, really like the movable supports, because they adapt themselves to different kind of frames.Two things bother me a little bit: First, the strip with the hook that goes attached to the high edge of the rear door; I would like for…
