Yakima is known for consumer-friendly designs built for quick installation and ease of use. The TwoTimer and FourPlay carry on that tradition, with the TwoTimer coming pre-assembled and able to fit a 1 ¼” and 2” hitch receiver out of the box. The FourPlay offers a one-step, tool-free assembly and fits 2” hitch receivers right out of the box.

The TwoTimer can transport two bikes, while the FourPlay can convert from a four-bike carrier to a two-bike carrier in minutes. The FourPlay and TwoTimer are both designed for fast and easy loading and unloading, thanks to their low tray height and user-friendly frame ratcheting system, which securely holds bikes in place. Their compact design lets them fold down for easy rear-of-vehicle access, and fold up when not in use.
