This frame stinks when camping

I would never recommend this product. It's useless. My bike crashed due to poor rack design. Rubber mounts slide off the rack itself, causing the bike to drag across the road. And if you don't notice it right away, you could ruin your tires and maybe even your rims. Not to mention your bike could fall completely.

This bike rack is a joke

The bike rack is not strong, it is NOT stable, it is not easy to assemble and the worst thing is that the straps don't even fit my bike frame. The only frame they are long enough for is a 6 year old. I am very angry and regret that I never spent money on this product joke. You could at least mention that this only applies to expensive, lightweight, narrow frames that not everyone has access to.

NOT attached to Honda CRV 2009 -

The top and bottom hooks don't fit my SUV. Before purchasing I checked their website to make sure it was compatible between the trunk and my car. The hooks on the sides scratch the paint. Soft bumpers protected the car well. Folds up fairly easily. I don't like that bikes are only secured with a small piece of Velcro - even the instructions recommend using a bungee cord in addition to the rack. Am I not paying for this rack to store my bikes?

It worked fine but I'm not sure I'll use it.

Used on Acura MDX. It worked well, but I'm not sure I'll use it again with an Acura MDX on long trips. The part of the tailgate where the top straps attach is plastic, not metal (an auto part, not a hook). It could carry the weight of two bicycles. I have a Volvo XC60 that fits better in this trunk. The top mount does rest on the glass, but judging by the fact that the picture shows the exact scenario, I find it more convenient to use. The stand itself is very easy to install and remove.

worked fine After we found it in our Jeep Gr.

A little concerned after reading other reviews, used immediately upon receipt, just to check. worked fine After not installing it on our Jeep Gr Cherokee for over a month my husband and I forgot what it was like. I did, but I knew it wasn't quite right. Driven 2 hours on bumpy country roads on winding, windy, hilly roads. He was fine. When we got to our campsite, the straps hadn't even loosened a bit. nor did he lean to one side or the other. I was very impressed. Would recommend again to…

Got my bike rack in the mail tonight. .

Got my bike rack in the mail tonight. he was wrong! The handrail that holds the bikes will NOT slide all the way up to the locked position because one of the black metal channels is too narrow. This piece of metal was bent about 1/4 inch and it already had metal/abrasions exposed! I was able to bend and snap it easily, but now I have a scratched/faulty post that will likely rust sooner due to the exposed metal. The weather in New England is terrible so I'm sure you understand my concerns! I…

Not recommended except for recreational use

I hate this thing. it leaves/leaves marks on the trunk of my car where the rubber pads meet the top of the trunk. It also doesn't work well at high speeds. I had to pull over on the 55 mile freeway to try and sit down a bit more. I highly recommend not buying this item and looking for one that also has latches on the side of the trunk lid as those four (2 top, 2 bottom) tend to slip even if they are tight enough that I can can't squeeze them. more lines of it. Another thing to keep in mind is…

Definitely worth the price

I've been using this bike rack on the trunk of two of my family's cars for two years now. Getting in and out is incredibly easy and allows the trunk to be opened with the luggage rack installed. It stays safe when cruising around town or on long highway trips. After driving on the freeway, I usually check the belts to make sure they haven't come loose. The trunk holds all of my bikes—a road bike, two mountain bikes, and a frame with steps. If you have kids or adult bikes with small triangles…

Either defective or incompatible with the 2012 Highlander.

Unfortunately, this article does not fit in my car. Either that or the device is defective. I ordered a brand new shelf from Revain Warehouse Deals. It was apparently used on arrival - scratches on the support bar suggested the bikes had been transported long enough to leave a mark. My husband and I spent about 10 minutes installing it on my 2012 Toyota Highlander. It's definitely a two person job as you have to keep some straps under tension while supporting the rack itself to attach it. We…

I'm NOT impressed: Bike rack

**Edit* I retract my previous review in full. My son got back on his bike today after using this rack 2 weeks ago. The crank (next to the pedal) was bent so badly that he said it was very wobbly and he couldn't ride it. When we got to the campsite he noticed that it was slightly bent, but apparently even more so when we got home. We assume this happened when we were trying to mount three bikes on a tricycle rack. The only thing that makes sense is that this happened when I was trying to mount…
