Yakima Doubledown Ace 4 Bike Rack - Dimensions: About 44 inches high by 14 inches wide. Distance from the end of the tongue to the end of the arms when folded down is 16 inches.

Designed to fit a wide variety of vehicles.
The Yakima Double Down Ace 4 is a solid bike rack system. The switchblade frame cradles prevent bikes from swaying while driving, and the rubber straps keep bikes secured with confidence. The only part of this rack that I'm a little disappointed by, and I have no frame of reference with which to compare this to other hitch-mounted racks, is that the rack is not entirely theft-proof. The part that is secured in the receiver does indeed lock-in in a secure way. However, the upper part of the rack could easily be removed with two wrenches/pairs of pliers, and this component consists of the main parts of the rack. I guess a thief would have to go to the trouble of finding/purchasing the lower part of the rack if they wanted to use it, but I do wish there were a secure way to attach the upper and lower parts of the rack so as to inspire a bit more confidence in leaving the rack mounted on my vehicle while unattended.
