Rack 'em up.
With Yakima's FullTilt Four-Bike Rack, you can bring all four of your personal whips—oops, bikes for the whole family—anytime you hit the road in search of pristine pavement or dreamy dirt. With all your bikes on the back, you'll be able to fill the rest of the car with whiskey and beer—we mean children and significant others, obviously—and head out for an easy long weekend of debauched pedaling. Er, quality family time.
No matter your reasons for loading up, the FullTilt makes it super easy, with an AutoPin automatic positioning system, a tool-free SpeedKnob to lock it in place, and an integrated same key locking system that lets you lock everything to everything else (Yeah, Jimmy knows where he'll end up if he doesn't stop poking his sister). The UpperHand tilting and storage lever easily lets the rack swing up and down when unloaded, and the padded arms, anti-sway cradles, and replaceable ZipStrips make sure your bikes won’t go anywhere when you hit a speed bump or rally down a rugged dirt road. Yakima designed the FullTilt to fit with both 1.25in and 2in hitches, and even integrated a bottle opener so the kids can enjoy a fancy root beer after they pedal the 300-foot loop around the campground. You'll probably be on to something stronger by then.

Quick and Easy Part 2
The rack can be installed or removed in about 45 second. For my full suspension bike I use the Tube Top and it works well. My kids bikes fit fine with a bit of creativity, usually hanging by handlebars. The only complaint are the ridiculous zip strips. Whose bright idea was it to develop something so inconvenient?
Quick and Easy
I spent too much time researching the best system for my Outback and ended up with the Yakima Full Tilt.
Easy and effective
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I did an unhealthy amount of research on hitch mount bike racks and I ultimately decided to splurge on the Fulltilt 4. I am glad I did. It came down to the Fulltilt and the Swingdaddy which basically means ease of installation vs. the ability to access the trunk/hatch with the bikes on the car respectively. I am very glad I went with the Fulltilt as it can be installed/uninstalled in about 20 seconds. Another benefit vs. the Swingdaddy and other accessories is the the built in lock which saves the cash for an extra accessory, but more importantly it is built in and nicely stows. I would highly recommend the tubetopper accessory or equivalent for any non straight top tube bikes (most aren't).
This rack is worth every penny

I have been obsessing over which hitch...
I have been obsessing over which hitch mounted bike rack to get and I've got it down to either the Yakima FullSwing or FullTilt. I like the simplicity of the FullTilt (and reduced price of course) but I was wondering: with the bikes strapped onto the rack, can you reasonably tilt it forward to open the car's back hatch? We have dogs and on road trips we will be opening the back frequently without taking the bikes off. Thanks for your help!
The bikes have to be removed before tilting this rack. With the FullSwing the bikes to not have to be removed to access and open the back hatch.
It might be a bit more money but, the ease of the Full Swing is amazing that's the one to get.
It may depend on your hitch type. The swinging racks only fit in 2" receivers. The tilting racks can fit in 2" or 1 1/4" (common on cars and crossover SUV's). If you are just letting a dog out of the cargo door, it is definitely possible to leave the bikes racked as you tilt.
