Hollywood racks started in 1973 when we began making trunk-mounted racks at the back of our bike shop in Hollywood, California. Our Aim used to be simple: we wanted to make good quality products that were easy to use and came fully assembled. We earned a great reputation fast and soon began selling our racks to other bike shops all the way through California. By the late ’70s, we began selling our racks to bicycle companies such as Schwinn, Peugeot and nishiki. In 1981, we closed the bike shop and opened a small factory in los angeles, CA to exclusively make car racks, then relocated to a larger facility in 1988. In 1989, we began exporting our products to Europe, and in the 1990’s we expanded our line to include racks for trailer hitches, pickup trucks and spare tires. We have since relocated our offices, R and d and us warehouse to our present facility in the la area with manufacturing in Taiwan. Our products are to be had in all 50 States and in over 25 countries world wide.
This heavy-duty platform-style rack is designed as a 2 + 2 system so it may be easily converted to hold either two bicycles or four bicycles. It mounts on a 2-inch hitch and folds flat against the back of a vehicle when not in use. The rack uses padded universal top clamps and adjustable wheel holders. Bikes need simply to be dropped into the wheel holders and clamps slid down onto the frames. Velcro wheel straps add security. To prevent rack sway, the hitch system is “no-wobble/no-tools” and includes a locking pin and 9-foot security cable. The rack carries a limited warranty against defects.
