Hollywood Racks started in 1973 when they began making trunk-mounted racks in the back of our bike shop in Hollywood, California. Their aim was simple: We wanted to make good quality products that were easy to use and came fully assembled. They earned a great reputation fast and soon began selling their racks to other bike shops throughout California. By the late 1970's, they began selling their racks to bicycle companies such as Schwinn, Peugeot, and Nishiki.
In 1981, they 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, they began exporting our products to Europe, and in the 1990's they expanded their line to include racks for trailer hitches, pickup trucks, and spare tires. They have since relocated our offices, R&D and US warehouse to their present facility in the Los Angeles area with manufacturing in Taiwan. Their products are available in all 50 states and in over 25 countries worldwide.
