Abstract

The rack (3) has at least one holder (5). This is fixed to a connector (4) on the vehicle in the vicinity of the rear number plate (7). A double mast (6) extends upwards and can have the goods to be carried attached to it. The mast has a rectangular shape passing round the number plate. The two sections of the mast may pass between the number plate and the rear sidelights (8). The holder (5) on the carrier side may be formed from a bush (5a) which can be pushed onto the ball head of a trailer coupling (4a), and may be connected to a tubular arc to the carrier mast.

Description

The invention relates to a carrier at the rear of motor vehicles, especially for fastening bicycles in the trunk area of cars, comprising at least one support on the carrier side Attachment of the carrier to a vehicle-side connection in the Rear area near the official vehicle license plate, especially on a towbar and one with the carrier-side bracket connected, protruding upwards Carrier mast for fastening the goods to be transported, in particular several bicycles.

Such a rear bike rack on a car trailer hitch is known from DE 34 34 061 A1, the carrier on the Ball head and attached to the coupling neck of the trailer coupling and forms a removable unit with the vehicle. Furthermore, the carrier comprises a horizontal carrier part several rearward protruding standing rails into which the Bikes can be put in and attached with straps. Furthermore, a mast-like, vertical is parallel to the stern Carrier part provided on which the bicycles with special Clamps or straps attached in the upright position can be. This publication expressly refers to this noted that the bike rack continues to be a complete Lighting device for mounting the taillights as well the official vehicle registration number (license plate) having. This is required in order to Road traffic regulations to be met since the assembled Bicycles mostly the license plate and the taillights cover.

A similar bicycle rack for motor vehicles is known from DE 39 00 569, which is also plugged onto the motor vehicle trailer coupling rod, and arms with the fork pointing upwards and transversely to the direction of travel carries the frame of a suspended bicycle. As can be seen from FIG. 1 there, the license plate and the two taillights are also largely covered, so that additional, separate taillights and an additional license plate are also required with this bicycle holder. As a result, however, the rear bicycle rack is made more expensive and its overall length and weight are increased. In addition, the connection of the additional rear lights via the electrical connection on the trailer coupling often leads to loose contacts, which can lead to the failure of the rear lights. Furthermore, the only central receptacle on the trailer coupling does not preclude twisting of the bicycle carrier, so that road traffic can be impeded.

Accordingly, the invention is based on the object Generic carrier at the rear of motor vehicles continue to develop that achieves a simpler design is, which also makes handling easier and the Operational security is increased.

This object is achieved by a carrier according to the features of claim 1.

Due to the fact that the license plate is at least partially The shape of the support mast, which is cranked in the vehicle transverse direction, remains the official license plate - seen in the rear view - completely free, so that the official regulations regarding the recognizability of the license plate is fulfilled. In addition, the cranked results in the license plate enclosing shape of the mast is a particularly stable Execution, even with a certain loosening of the connection a reliable by widening the mast Protection against rotation around the vertical axis is achieved. Through the Proposed cranked shape will be the bikes in one transported elevated position, so that the taillights Completely free in accordance with road traffic regulations stay. So you no longer need additional taillights or License plates are purchased around the bike rack to be able to operate. In addition, the overall length  of the bike rack significantly shortened. Also the Operational safety with regard to the lighting system due to the lack of additional sources of interference, such as electrical Couplings increased, the overall operation and Handling when mounting the carrier is facilitated.

In a preferred embodiment, the support mast runs around it License plate around and sits between them after this embrace the license plate and the side taillights upwards away, so that there is a stable bracket, the additional on the bumper or similar vehicle parts on the side can be supported.

In a preferred embodiment, the bicycles are lying over the Trunk of the motor vehicle on the protruding Carrier mast attached. Through this lying mode of transport Bikes have less driving resistance, Cross wind influence and thus cheaper fuel consumption. Also the usual wind noise of such bike carriers can be reduced. In addition, several bicycles, in generally two to four bicycles with no essential Vehicle elevation stacked in this horizontal transport level will. Through this stacking in the horizontal plane above the The trunk of a notchback sedan is therefore self-evident if four bikes are taken up only one total height, which is the Hardly exceeds the vehicle roof. Thus the use of Garages and parking garages with an entry height of only approx. 2 Meters still possible.

However, the use of the bike rack is not on Notchback vehicles limited. So through an in Vehicle longitudinal direction beveled or cranked shape of the Carrier mast easy adaptation to the respective rear shape be made. This also means an optimal adjustment Hatchback or hatchback vehicles possible. Especially the proposed carrier is also suitable for off-road vehicles or Convertibles. The simple is still of particular advantage  Assembly, preferably using a socket on the ball head a trailer hitch. However, there are others Fastening options depending on the intended vehicle side Connection type possible. So the bike carrier can by means of a suitable adapter to the bumper of a vehicle clamped and fastened. For example, at Off-road vehicles within the bumper are often a muzzle trained so that then the support on the carrier simple. Inserted into this trailer mouth and with bolts can be secured. The carrier is preferably in this case on the one hand with regard to the mast and on the other hand divided in two with respect to the carrier-side bracket, so that the desired bracket to connect to each Existing vehicle-side connection can be easily replaced can.

The girder mast itself, despite bypassing the License plate and the upward-facing fastening part very small dimensions so that after acceptance (e.g. from the trailer hitch) in the trunk of the vehicle can be stowed. If necessary, the Have one or more separation points, for example plug connections, so that the mast in the Length can still be divided, and therefore extremely can be stored in the trunk to save space. The assembly the bike carrier is also done very quickly here by for example, the bracket on the carrier corresponding connection points, e.g. B. the ball head one Trailer coupling is plugged on, with a suitable Coupling of the protruding one, which encloses the license plate Carrier mast is put on, and then immediately the bikes the mast can be mounted.

In a preferred embodiment, the transition point is near the License plate between the mast and the bracket, for example on the trailer hitch, designed to be pivotable, so that the girder mast from its approximately vertical  Transport position in a horizontal recording position can be folded back. This can, for example Bikes in an upright position on the horizontal aligned mast, and then the Carrier mast together with the bicycles up 90 ° over the Trunk can be pivoted. This results in a particularly easy handling. Is essential here also the formation of a fitting in the manner of a Clamp that is attached to the bike to be transported. This fitting preferably has a non-circular, non-rotating Recess, for example a square hole with which the Fitting together with the bicycle on the mast can be threaded. The "non-round" shape results a twist-proof storage of the bike around the vertical axis. Of course, this recess can also be an oval or hexagonal shape depending on the cross-sectional shape of the mast be educated.

In addition, a loading area can also be provided on the carrier be so that to expand the trunk volume container or additional suitcases on the carrier or other Transport goods can be transported. Here be on it noted that by the pivotable mounting of the mast the goods to be transported are relatively simple about a horizontal transverse axis can be removed.

Further advantageous embodiments are the subject of Subclaims.

Fig. 12 is a side view similar to Fig. 3;

FIG. 13 shows a rear view according to FIG. 12; and

Fig. 14 shows an enlarged illustration of the connection region of the embodiment of the carrier according to Fig. 12 and 13.

In Fig. 1, the rear view is shown on the rear or trunk region of a motor vehicle 1, to which several bicycles 2 are fixed by means of a carrier 3 as an example of the transported goods. The carrier 3 consists essentially of an upwardly projecting mast 6 for fastening the bicycles 2 and a lower, carrier-side bracket 5 , which is detachably connected to a vehicle-side connection 4 . The connection 4 here consists of a trailer hitch 4 a, while the carrier-side bracket 5 is formed from a corresponding socket 5 a.

This receptacle 5 a can be pushed onto the ball head of the trailer coupling 4 a and fastened by means of one or more clamping screws 10 . This results in secure support and mounting of the carrier 3 .

It is essential here that, starting from the holder 5, the support mast 6 extends upwards in such a way that the official vehicle registration number or license plate 7 is at least largely enclosed. This is achieved in that the carrier mast 6 has a bent shape in the transverse direction of the vehicle, so that the license plate 7 is gripped like a frame. The support mast 6 runs between the license plate 7 and the side rear lights 8 with the license plate 7 completely released. Over the number plate 7 , the offset of the support mast 6 is performed so that the support mast 6 converges again and thus the central recording of several bicycles 2 is formed in a lying position above the trunk 9 of the vehicle 1 . It should be pointed out that the support mast 6 can also be formed by only half of the shape of the support mast 6 shown here, that is to say, for example, the number plate 7 is gripped only on the right half. This ensures that the view of the license plate 7 and the rear lights 8 remains completely clear. Furthermore, after the frame-like encirclement of the license plate 7 , the support mast 6 can also run upwards in the form of two spaced-apart support mast parts, provided that the attachment of the bicycle 2 at several points is desired.

Although the carrier-side holder 5 is preferably designed as a plug-in sleeve 5 a for plugging onto the ball head of a trailer coupling 4 a, other forms of connection between the connection 4 / holder 5 can also be provided. For example, the vehicle-side connection 4 can be formed by a sturdy bumper 4 b, for example a plug-in pin connection 5 b being provided as the support 5 on the support side, with which the support mast 6 can be fastened to the vehicle 1 by inserting bolts or screws.

Another alternative is / c as a terminal 4 / holder represented by reference numeral 4 c 5 5, wherein, for example swivel bearing plates 5 c are bolted to the rear of the vehicle, and locking pin 5 c of the frame-like wrap-around of the number plate 7 through the support mast 6 to the compound are provided. As such connection points 4 c, sturdy vehicle-side bores can be used, such as the attachment points of the bumper 4 b or similar stiffened articulation points which are suitable for receiving the support load of the carrier 3 .

In Fig. 2, an embodiment of the receptacle 5 a is shown, which is divided, and can be clamped by means of a clamping screw 10 on the ball head of the trailer hitch 4 a. Furthermore, this split receptacle 5 a below the ball head has a stop element 12 which engages around the ball head in order to ensure a secure mounting of the receptacle 5 a. Above this support 5 on the support side, a pipe bend 11 runs in the direction of the license plate 7 and is connected to the lower part of the support mast 6 , which is designed like a frame and surrounds the license plate 7 . After the throwing power of the number plate 7 of the formed here as a tube support mast 6 extends to a transverse mounting bracket 16 for supporting the bicycles 2 in the horizontal plane. Quick fasteners, in particular hook screws 17, are provided on the fastening carrier 16 in order to be able to fasten the bicycles 2 to be transported quickly. These transverse mounting brackets 16 are preferably arranged such that they can be adjusted in height on the support mast 6 so that they can be adjusted to different rear shapes of the vehicle. From Fig. 2 it can also be seen that the part of the support mast 6 surrounding the license plate 7 can also be produced with rounded corners, for example by bending an aluminum tube, the upper part of the support mast 6 then being inserted at the converging upper end. At the lower end of this frame-like part, a bracing screw 13 is provided, which is used to fasten the bracket 5 , here the two-part socket 5 a, to the vehicle-side connection 4 .

FIG. 3 shows a side view according to FIG. 2, the design of the plug-in sleeve 5 a with the pipe bend running towards the support mast 6 being evident. The bracing screw 13 runs towards the coupling neck of the trailer coupling 4 a, and is fastened there by means of a clamp 15 and a nut part 14 . As a result, the upright position of the support mast 6 can be precisely fixed with the bracing screw 13 . For mutual alignment, the nut part 14 is movably mounted on the clamp 15 about a horizontal axis 14 a. It should be noted that the bracing screw 13 is displaced forward in relation to the ball head in order to create a corresponding support lever arm. In the vicinity of the bracing screw 13 , the upstanding mast 6 can be exchangeably attached. The support mast 6 can be carried out approximately halfway up or at the transition from the frame-like wrap around the license plate 7 , for example by means of a plug connection, so that different support mast ends, for example a version with a rectangular, oval or round cross section, can be plugged on. However, the upper part of the support mast 6 preferably has a non-round, non-rotating shape. In addition, this interchangeable fastening of the support mast 6 serves to adapt to different rear shapes of the vehicle 1 , as is indicated in FIG. 6. The carrier mast can be bent forward in the longitudinal direction of the vehicle (reference number 6 ') or run obliquely to the rear (reference number 6 '''), provided that this requires the special shape of the rear area of the vehicle 1 .

FIG. 4 shows a representation similar to that shown in FIG. 3, but with spacer sleeves 18 threaded onto the support mast 6 between the individual bicycle stacking levels in order to ensure a secure spacing between the individual bicycles 2 here. This embodiment is particularly suitable for the advantageous threading of the bicycles 2 by means of a clamp-shaped shaped piece 19 shown in FIG. 5 as a special form of the fastening bracket 16 . This fitting 19 is attached in the vicinity of the bottom bracket 2 a of the bicycle, so that the fitting 19 is attached approximately in the center of gravity of the bicycle. This fitting 19 has a non-rotatable recess 20 , for example a square hole, so that after fitting the fitting 19 on the support mast 6, the bicycle 2 is mounted against rotation (about the vertical axis according to FIG. 1). Of course, the support mast 6 is designed to correspond to the recess 20 , that is to say here with a similar square profile. This threading of the individual bicycles results in a particularly simple and secure fastening of the bicycle to the vehicle 1 .

FIG. 7 shows a modified embodiment of the carrier, with a loading area 30 being fastened to the lower part of the carrier mast 6 encompassing the number plate 7 . In this area, stops 21 are also shown, which serve to support the bumper 4 b or the rear vehicle area. As indicated, 30 containers or other transport goods, such as sporting goods, can be transported on this loading area. FIG. 8 shows the illustration rotated by 90 ° according to FIG. 7, the arrangement of the stops 21 for securing the support 3 and thus the support mast 6 and the loading area attached thereto being particularly evident. The loading area 30 is also, as described above, attached to the support mast 6 above the part encompassing the license plate 7 by means of a push-on sleeve 31 (cf. also FIG. 9). Of course, this push-on sleeve 31 is fixed to the support mast 6 by a clamping device, for example one or more clamping screws 32 .

FIG. 10 shows a preferred embodiment of the carrier 3 , the upper part, namely the support mast 6 on the lower part, namely the holder 5, being pivotably mounted by means of a pivot axis 40 running in the transverse direction of the vehicle. This pivot axis 40 is preferably formed approximately through the center of the ball head of the trailer hitch 4 a, provided that a trailer hitch 4 a is selected as the bracket 5 or vehicle-side connection 4 . As a further alternative, the attachment by means of a wrap-around element 5 b for attaching the carrier 3 to the bumper 4 b is shown here in dash-dot lines. Here, too, the pivot axis 40 can thus be formed, for example, on the upper edge of the bumper 4 b. Above the pivot axis 40 , the carrier mast 6 in turn runs upwards, framing the license plate 7 , in order then to store at least one bicycle 2 in a horizontal orientation above the trunk edge. It should be noted that the arrangement of the bicycle 2 shown here with wheels pointing in the direction of travel is preferred, since this causes the handlebar and the bicycle saddle to point to the rear and therefore cannot come into contact with the trunk lid. After folding down from the upright transport position into a horizontal position of the support mast 6 , the saddle points downward. However, in order to avoid twisting the bicycle into the overhead position here, the bicycle 2 can also be threaded onto the support mast 6 in the normally set up position, as shown in a second variant. Due to the offset arrangement of the bicycles, a total of more bicycles can be stacked on the support mast 6 .

In Fig. 11, the design of the pivot axis 40 is shown enlarged, for example screw bolts 41 are rotatably mounted in the socket 5 a, so that the pivot axis 40 runs centrally through the ball head of the trailer hitch 4 a. Thus, several bicycles can be attached to the folded mast 6 , preferably threaded through the fitting 19 shown in FIG. 5, and then folded up about the pivot axis 40 by 90 ° into the transport position over the trunk 9 . This swiveling design also makes the trunk of a notchback sedan easily accessible. Also, the folding movement of the mast 6 to access the trunk can only be 30 ° down, for example, so that the trunk lid can be opened. In this case, for example, a locking position can be provided for the bracing screw 13 (see FIG. 3), which then holds the support mast 6 in a position which is folded down slightly to the rear.

In Figs. 12 to 14, a particularly simple to produce variant is represented, wherein the framing of the license plate 7 of the lower part of the support mast 6 to the bracket 5 and the engaging therein connection 4 (4 a case in the form of the hitch) is continuously bent. This eliminates the need for complex welding work. For mounting the bracing screw 13 , a reinforcing profile 42 is fastened by means of pipe clamps 43 under the bend of the support mast 6 . The pivot axis 40 is arranged slightly behind the ball head of the trailer hitch 4 a.
