The Swagman G10 64682 is a platform style hitch rack that gives you the ability to carry two bicycles. The G10 features built in locking arms that are used to secure your bikes onto the rack along with a locking threaded hitch pin that secures your bike rack onto the vehicle.
Ability to fold the rack away from the back of the vehicle
The G10 has the ability to fold away from the back of your vehicle in order to give you better access to either your trunk or hatch. The tilt away feature can be used whether you have bikes loaded or not. Often with the bikes still loaded the rack can be tilted down you will still be able to open the hatch. When the bikes aren't being used you can fold down the centre mast on the rack and then the entire rack can be folded up to the back of the vehicle giving you significantly better clearance for parking.
Locking mechanism to secure your bikes
The G10 includes a locking hitch pin which is used to secure your bike rack onto your vehicle. There are also 2 lock cylinders which are built into the ratcheting hooks that are used to lock your bikes onto the rack.
Fits 1 1/4" and 2" hitches
The G10 has a 1.25 inch hitch tube which gives you the ability to mount the rack directly into your 1.25 inch hitch out of the box.

Once the rack is in the hitch and you have the pin hold lined up you can the use the included threaded locking hitch pin to secure the rack onto your vehicle.
Fits a wide variety of bikes
