Simple, Strong, Secure …
Hollywood Racks started in 1973 when we began making trunk-mounted racks in the back of our bike shop in Hollywood, California. Our aim was simple: We wanted to make good quality products that were easy to use and came fully assembled.
We earned a great reputation fast and soon began selling our racks to other bike shops throughout California. By the late ‘70s, we began selling our racks to bicycle companies such as Schwinn, Peugeot and Nishiki. In 1981, we closed the bike shop and opened a small factory in Los Angeles, CA to exclusively make car racks, then relocated to a larger facility in 1988. In 1989, we began exporting our products to Europe, and in the 1990’s we expanded our line to include racks for trailer hitches, pickup trucks and spare tires. We have since relocated again to our present facility in the Los Angeles area. Our products are available in all 50 states and in over 25 countries worldwide.
Today, we still build Hollywood Racks the only way we know how - simple, strong and secure, and we are proud to maintain our reputation of having the toughest racks in the business that will look great on your car. We are family owned and operated, the same folks for 35 years!
Having come from engineering and retail backgrounds, we know the importance of user friendly designs and proven quality. Equally important is good customer service. Our products are built with top quality materials such as high strength steel and aircraft quality fasteners for maximum strength. We use generous amounts of padding to protect bikes and cars, and all of our products are fully covered with a limited lifetime warranty.
Over the years, we have refined our racks by innovating new designs, monitoring automotive trends & materials, and keeping up with vehicle fit requirements. What is important is that for the past 35 years, Hollywood Racks has been a trusted brand by everyone from recreational cycling families to weekend warriors to race teams on and off the road.
We’re not the biggest rack company, but we do make some of the strongest, safest, and easiest to use systems for bringing your bikes along wherever you go. Have a great ride!
