Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by works great ... Only rated this a good and not great because it is a bit of a challenge putting the unit together out of the box. Probably took 20 mins or so -- unboxing experience could be improved (a lot). Otherwise ... works great and would buy again. October 12, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Caution: Not for Mini Vans or most bike geometry The bike rack is solid and easy to assemble. The FitDial mad it easy to adjust to the prescribed angle however the installation manual inside the box was from 2013 and did not therefor cover newer car makes and models. The anti-sway feature is nice and the cradle straps were easy to use. That's where the good part ends. The arms are show short and cradles so close together that there is no way to mount three bicycles on this rack. Two bikes maximum. The cradles although made of rubber do not fit the diameter of current mountain bikes sold over the last six years. It will hold a narrow framed road or city bike or very old mountain bike. The bar spacing and width prevent any of the newer style bikes from fitting at all due to the geometry of the frames. I have two bikes, one a mountain (Specialized Hard Rock) and the other a city bike (Bianchi Milano) that would simply not fit due to their frame geometry. I would not use this rack with a Chrysler Mini-Van. The rack does not tighten down very easily and the rear spoiler will get damaged if you do. Even using the fit guide, once the bikes are on the rack the angle is still off just a bit that the rack pulls away from the vehicle and then just rests on the bumper. This rack is only good for a sedan and flat bar or road bikes. September 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product, easy to use! I'm a single mom, needed a way to transport our bikes when we went to the river. Was a little sceptical because it was so easy to use. But it worked great, very sturdy, bikes were secure, and I put it on by myself and my 15 year old daughter helped me load the bikes. A little more expensive than a couple of the others but it holds 3 bikes, the others only held one or two, and a trusted brand. Note: directions say that if my model of SUV has a fin (which it does) then I couldn't use it, but I used it anyway, and had no issues at all. July 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Made in the USA Very stable rack with added bonus feature of the seat tube stabilizer device to keep bike from sliding during turns. Went over pumps and manholes without an issue as the side and bottom straps kept everything tie down securely. The bike holder arms were easily rotated, for storage, simply by pushing the pushpins. Adjustable positions of the rack accommodate all shapes and sizes of trunk designs. It fits nicely onto my sedan's trunk as well as the lift back hatch of my Subaru wagon. Best of all it's Made in the USA July 5, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by I Returned It The concept is good. Well made rack. But I am a woman who thought it would be nice to put a good bike rack on the SUV and have the freedom to take my bike anywhere, by myself. The rack was difficult for me to put together! Then, it was even more difficult to try to single-handedly fit it to the back of the SUV. There are 6 straps that kept slipping or falling. I was concerned that the strap hooks would scratch the paint on the car. It was awkward for me, especially trying to do it by myself. Ended up very frustrated with the whole thing! Returned the rack and will look for something more user friendly for 1 person to work. June 16, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by very secure on vechile Easy to attach and load bikes. Does not fit smaller bikes well. October 14, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not very secure I used this rack one time and returned it. I used it to hold two bikes on a Honda Accord for a 45 mile trip. By the time I got to my destination, the clips holding the rack to the bottom of the trunk had both come off the trunk leaving the rack swinging about. September 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Performed better than expected. Held 3 bikes with no issues. Minor scratches at spot if clip attachment. August 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very secure transport system I was looking for a non-hitch rack that allows me to open/close the rear hatch without removing the rack. This system fits the bill. It's a little tricky to learn the assembly, but once done, you don't have to disassemble for storage. You can also leave it on the car after the bikes are removed because the arms fold down and lock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Works Great When it first arrived we thought it wouldn't work on my 2010 Ford or my husbands 2002 Jeep Cherokee, found out it works perfect with both vehicles and holds the bikes sturdy and still while driving on the highway and backroads. March 18, 2015
