Little thing that make major differences

Adaptation for platform is our goal and this kick out adapter is just such item

Got a low vehicle like a mini van or a ford Transit , this product allows for the rear wheel to be further lifted in a vertical fashion creating a higher clearance for your bikes

Perfect for super long bikes as well to create a better clearance for all bikes

directly mounts to the vertical post to interface to the low bar

Easy to assemble and use

Helps for distribution of the weight of the bikes as well, we see positive results with E bikes

    Can use a lower setting for the top rail with this adapter.

    This allowed me to open my driver’s side rear door on my 144″ wb Sprinter with the Three Pack when leaned back. It’s a much better solution than using a hitch extension.

      WE agree, keeping the rack closer to the vehicle and angling the bike for a better carry experience.

    I haven’t installed it yet so I don’t know how it works at this time. Use has been limited at this point do to snow. Bike season is right around the corner. Rack and customer service has been rad. Thanks

    The 6 inch kickout adapter works as advertised. I’m running it on my 2008 Honda CR-V and my wife’s 2019 Subaru Outback (two vehicles with low clearance hitches) with the short hitch option, and it lifts the bikes to a comfortable position. I have a raked out Specialized Enduro, so it hangs low inevitably- this adapter gives me the extra height to make it work. I’ve tested the clearance on different scenarios- quick changes in incline/decline, dirt roads, parking lot barriers- clears it all. Would recommend if you need that extra bit of clearance for peace of mind, especially on low hitch vehicles like the CR-V or Outback.
