Well made, sturdy and able to handle four bicycles without concern of product failure. The tilt feature is great since I use the hitch on my F-150 Supercrew without obstructing access to the tailgate. I did add some some additional scratch resistant tape to the mounting points considering the kids are not as careful when loading and unloading the bikes.
This rack was sold to us by a trailer place and mounted to a hitch on the back of trailer. Three out of four bikes did not fit. Bought adapters so women's bike would fit. the bike were properly mounted as per directions, yet the moved wildly on the hitch. The pin in the receiver can not be adjusted. other nuts loosened and could not be tightened. We were pulled over by the police, because they thought there was a safety issue. The bike closest to the hitch bent the hitch and fell out, thankfully it was chained to next bike. the bike and trailer were scatted in this incident. On cross country trip, bought a different brand and style from Walmart, ***, wheel tie down. working very well.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Did not perform
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? not as used
I ordered this bike rack and couldn't wait to receive. We attempted to put 4 bikes on rack however it wasn't going to happen. 3 of the bikes were considered over-size frames so the rack wouldn't close. It is better suited to slender frames with maybe 1 oversize.
I bought this to use on my Jeep Liberty which has a rear spare tire. I bought an extension so that I could use the bike rack. I wanted to be able to tow my camper behind the bikes. You can not, so this is not the product I thought it was. I don't like the fact that it doesn't have a lock or the fact that the top plate that holds the bikes in place has three knobs that must all be screwed down to hold all the bikes in place so when you unscrew this all the bikes are loose at once. I also had to purchase cross bars to put on my womens bikes. It does hold four bikes however and the quality is good.
I just used this carrier on a 2,200 mile round trip drive and it worked very well. I had it loaded with 3 full size mountain bikes(one also had a kid's seat mounted to it) and a 20" bike, so safe to say it was fully loaded. I used this with a 2" hitch on a 2wd ford explorer.Mounting and removing the bikes was very easy, and bikes did not move around much once fastened in. The hardware and carrier itself were good quality and heavy duty enough.I did not have occasion to use the tilt feature, so I can't comment on how that works.Nice that you can still tow a trailer with this set up also.All around good carrier.
