Ok when you buy a rack this cheap you expect to get what this company sends. That being said I bought two and they have securely held my bikes on the van roof. A bit of a heads up the key hole side of the main connection can be flipped around so you can see what your doing.
Not only do you get two bike roof racks but they also a GREAT deal! These work wonderful and are very easy to install and use with bikes. My family and I use them all the time to transport our mountain bikes to various trails and mountain destinations. I would recommend them to anyone who wants an easy way transport their bikes.
I've owned this rack for over 3 years. We actively used it for about 1 1/2, then it started to seem flimsy. We used it a lot, though, and it worked well. Took some very expensive bikes on long drives w/o worrying about them. However, if you're wanting to make a one-time investment in a bike rack, keep looking. If you're just getting into cycling and don't want to spend a ton of money on a new hobby, this is for you. Note to short people, though, you'll need a step or a tall friend to help you get your bikes up. I'm 5'3" and couldn't mount them alone.
Installed this bicycle rack on my pop-up camper. Rack looks great and holds the bikes very securely (I used it for two adult bikes, one mid-size bike, and one small bike). My only complaint is that the mounting hardware (nuts, bolts, etc.) are zinc-plated steel which will eventually rust (stainless steel hardware would have been much better). I saved hundreds of dollars since other racks are much more expensive. I plan to replace the steel hardware with stainless which should make this product last a lifetime.
Good product. The only thing I don't like is strap doesn't hold the front wheel in place securely because of the place of the bolts that lock the rack on to the roof. There isn't any danger of losing the bike but you can see the wheel wobble as the car is moving.
We've had these quite awhile now and used them about 2 dozen times. I worried at first due to the low price, but took a chance. The first couple of times we used them, I kept an eye on the bikes through the moon roof. Now I don't even think about them. Very happy with these bike racks.
I was looking for rooftop bike carriers as a trunk mount was interfering with bodywork on car. For the price, TWO of the is a great deal. Most places wanted $$ for just one. Quality is adequate, not ****** brand higher quality. Seemed a little flimsy at first and it proved otherwise after the first drive to my favorite riding spot. Great rack for the price.
