Quick Grip quick release hitch – “Up & Out”


Our “Up & Out” carrier is a unique design… allowing you to carry bikes on a top quality bike rack and tow something at the same time.  This hitch is what makes that possible.

Key Features

  • ONLY  for the “Up & Out” carrier.
  • Fits any standard (75mm wide) tow bar tongues per below.

  • Fixes to tow bar using your own tow ball.
  • Built-in anti-rattle bolt.
  • Allows carrier to be padlocked to vehicle/towbar (padlock not included).
  • Heavy duty & zinc plated for extra protection.
  • Comes complete with Q/R pin and “R” clip.

PLEASE NOTE 1There are clearance issues you need to be aware of before using this ‘hitch’. The Up & Out carrier slips in and out of this hitch vertically, so you must ensure there’s enough room for this i.e enough room for the rack to slide up and down (in and out of the hitch) past things like rear mounted spare wheels etc. Take note of the clearances needed (set out below) in order to use this hitch.

PLEASE NOTE 2 – A longer towbar tongue (as shown below) should help with any clearance problem. These are available from any auto accessory store, towbar supplier or eBay etc.

PLEASE NOTE 3To use this hitch, your towbar tongue must be turned upwards as shown below.

GripSport carriers are designed and manufactured right here in Australia by GripSport. Each GripSport bike rack has a lifetime structural guarantee if fitted, used & maintained correctly.

  1. Accidental Damage – If you run over one of our products with a truck (in other words “accidental damage” where the breakage is your fault) then you’re up for the repair/replacement cost. Similarly, if your product isn’t setup, used or maintained properly then any resultant damage is on you.
  2. Wear and tear is not covered by warranty (because things like painted/plated finishes, moving parts and rubbers etc have to wear out eventually), but if our product breaks because of faulty workmanship or materials (in other words the breakage is our fault) all you’ve got to do is return it along with details of what happened and if it really was our fault it gets fixed or replaced free of charge.
  3. ‘Bike Racks for Cars, 4WD’s & SUVs’ are designed for Cars, 4WD’s & SUVs and are NOT covered by any warranty if fitted to the rear of caravans, trailers or camper trailers. Don’t do it.
  4. ‘Bike Racks for Caravans and Campers’  (both front & rear mounted) must be fitted per the relevant Fitting Guides on our website. If not then there’s no warranty.

Simple really, just the way a guarantee should be… but hardly ever is!

PLEASE NOTE 1: Trailers, LED lamps and custom made (non-standard) “mounting systems” (for caravans, campers and trailers etc) are covered by a 2 year warranty.

PLEASE NOTE 2: We do not accept returns just because someone changes their mind. Our products do exactly what we say they do, they will fit where we say they’ll fit and sorry, but a change of mind is not a valid reason for a refund.
