easy to install unit. comes with a locking bolt to attach to hitch which is a nice feature. most times you need to buy your own as an extra. The tilt and the folding feature is more manual than on the upper end competitor models but they are not worth double the price to have so I am OK with what I knew I would receive. The main post only bolts to the lower fame unit so anyone with a wrench can take the entire unit if they want. But for a short road stop I feel safe that no one will casually walk by and take the unit. You can lock your bikes to the locking lower unit so again a casual thief will be deterred but with any unit if someone wants your stuff they will take it with a bolt cutter. The folding arms are just long enough and spaced enough that when lowered they line up with my rear parking sensors so in reverse I have the constant alarm go off. Very annoying. My older unit was not in that line so my backup alarm was still working well. That is the only major draw back for me.
