Shingleback Swing Arm

The Shingleback Swing Arm takes the Shingleback Rack to the next level. With this optional extra you can access the rear of your vehicle without unloading a single bike – no tools required!


$899.00 inc GST



** Please note:  due to very high demand for the swing arms and some delays caused by transport industrial action and State restrictions we are currently out of stock and there will be a short 2-3 week delay on shipping.  Pre-orders are recommended as we have a great supply in progress and will do our best to get orders out as soon as possible.  Thank you for your patience. 

The Shingleback Swing Arm opens either to the left (away from traffic), or to the right, in a simple two-step process. First you release the heavy duty safety clamp, and then you pull the safety pin. The gas strut takes over and in less than a minute you have full access to your vehicle.

Like the Shingleback Rack, the Swing Arm is an all steel construction, fully welded by a certified welder, shot blasted, zinc primed then top coated in a tough scratch resistant powder coat. The Swing Arm has double anti-rattle devices to ensure a rock solid fit to your car’s tow hitch. The solid construction ensures it can be used with all Shingleback racks – 2B902 bike rack up to the 6 bike.

The Floor Stand has been designed to be used with the swing arm – unfortunately the trolley stand is not compatible with the swing arm attached to the rack. 

* Please note: The Shingleback Swing Arm has been made exclusively for the Shingleback Racks and isn’t suitable for use on a VW Multivan or other vans with a similar large, lift up door.

    I just purchased the 5 bike rack with the optional swingarm pivot. Took it out for the first time today and im absolutely wrapped with it. I looked at all types of racks and so happy I chose this one, being able to access the boot without removing bikes is perfect for the weekend trips away. Thanks again guys terrific product.

    I originally purchased the 6 bike rack and trolley. These products are excellent. Very well made and perfect for moving 6 bikes around on all types of terrain. Simple to put bikes on and off the rack. For the 6 bike rack (which is quite heavy), I strongly recommend the trolley to move the rack around. It doubles up as a bike stand under our house and saves a lot of space storing the bikes.
    In regard to the rack, have had lots of comments from people seeing the rack asking where to purchase one.
    Recently purchased the swing arm. Consider this if you are taking bikes on holiday as it makes accessing the gear in the boot a lot easier (we would have had to have gone through the passenger doors (on a Prado) to get our luggage etc without the Swingarm.
    Highly recommend all the products from Shingleback
