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.
This is my first bike rack, and assembly was very easy. It is also quite a deal on overstock.com to get two racks for the price of one on another website (same rack). It is quite a challenge to hoist bikes on top of my car, but I was expecting that. Putting the clamp in place once the bike is up there does require some rocking back and forth of the bike. Once the clamp is on and locked it does feel secure. Initially i was nervous with the bikes up there, especially since this was my first time using a bike rack like this. We drove these loaded bike racks on about a 2 hour trip, and after awhile I forgot that the bikes were even up on the roof! So, overall they do the job :)
They had the very best price on Overstock. I found the racks easy to install. I did some trial and error adjustments but found the original setup was the best. To me the bikes seem very secure. Much more expensive racks for sure look more secure but the Swagman racks seem fine for our short trips going about 45 mph.
