This idea came from a customer’s need of transporting her wheelchair, but wanted something more stable than a tray on a hitch with bungees. We started with the Yakima Hold-up 1.25″ hitch mounted bike carrier.
We modified this by flipping the rear bike tray so that the 2 trays are facing the same direction. Next, I removed the hook used for retaining bikes and discarded it. The chair is secured with the ratchet straps in the wheel hoops, and 1 hook over the armrest area of the chair. The hoops for the front wheels were folded back against the footrests and secured with a tiedown strap. This has turned out to be an easy to use great functioning system for our customer.
