Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information.
Today we are going to show you part number TH558P from Thule. This is Thules tandem carrier, pivoting model. And what this carrier does is, it mounts on the very end of your roof-rack bars and what it does is, it allows you to load up either a long, recumbent bike or a tandem bicycle. And what happens is, you put your bicycle on the vehicle at a 90-degree angle first, lock it into place with the front fork skewer, and then just push the rest of this bike onto the back of this carrier. We will go ahead and show you the components. We will cover some of the parts that are involved in the kit.

First off, this is your skewer right here that is what actually clamps down on your fork to hold the bike into place. Next we have these two bars here these work as a clamp with the rack itself. It goes underneath and clamps to your existing roof-rack bars. And also your bar adapters, these plastic pieces here. And also there is a strap right here. Basically what this does is, it helps keep your handlebars straight on your bicycle while you are loading it up. Now obviously this is the carrier itself here this is the main component. You can actually use it for a single-person bicycle. But if you are going to use it for a tandem, then this boom right here is added onto the very end of it to extend it out to carry a tandem bicycle. All right, and this is the pivot point for the bicycle itself. It is held in place by a simple snap pin.

Once you take the pin out, this will actually rotate out so you can load your bicycle at an easy 90-degree angle. At this point we can go ahead and start partial assembly of the bicycle rack. We will start off with adding the skewer to the front here. It installs just like that. And we will leave it loose. We will go ahead and put it back in straight and then flip it over. There is some hardware that gets installed on the bottom half with one of the clamps. One of the short carriage bolts gets installed into that track, and one of the clamp plates goes on top. Then you install the flat washer and the nut. You want to leave this loose because you have to adjust this to match the width of your roof rack. Match up your first half and then reinstall the pin. That is about all we can do for now. Let us go ahead and get the roof rack itself ready.

The blocks simply stretch and slide over the bar. And we are going to cover the tower here, just to make sure we have it as close to the edge as possible. And that way all the weight is on the tower, too. Next we will lay one of the clamp plates on top of the blocks on the front rail and just loosely install the hardware. All right, now we ready to install the carrier itself. Two tabs on the carrier will mount on these holes here, and then the rear part of the carrier, the part we slid onto the bottom, will mount up onto the rear bar. Again, just loosely install the washers and nuts. Once you get everything loosely installed, go ahead and take a few seconds to straighten it out. Make sure it is in a straight line with the vehicle. At that point, you can go ahead and start tightening down all the hardware. Watch that you do not get tangled up here.

All right, we have got our rack fully installed we are ready to go. Let us go ahead and install a tandem bicycle and give you a better idea of how it works. And also, as you can see, this bicycle rack comes complete with a strap to hold the handlebars straight while you load the bike onto your bicycle rack. The strap attaches to the handlebars on both sides, right here and right here. And, depending on how the brake lever and the different types of handlebars are out there, you will probably do these a little bit differently each time. And the other half goes down to the seat post. And this buckle in the middle here actually does all the tightening. OK, let us go ahead and install this on a bicycle rack and give you a better idea of how it looks.We will start off with the front wheel off the bike. And then we will put it on the front fork mount, where it swivels away from the vehicle. Just tighten down the forks. All right, we have got our bike in place. We will go ahead and put our safety pin back in the front so it will not swivel any more. This strap here you just simply wrap it around itself around the beam. This is only being used for a regular single bike. All right, and there you have it for part number TH558P from Thule.

    These bike racks are exactly what I was needing to carry my bikes. The space between the roof racks on my 1995 Ford Escort are spaced closer than the racks on my Explorer. These are fully adjustable. I highly recommend these bike racks. Putting these on was a piece of cake as well as taking them off. they were shipped faster than I expected. Quality of the construction and ease of installation is A+. Compare these to Thule and Yakima. You will be pleasantly surprised

    After shopping around everywhere on-line, including the classified and auction sites, this was the best deal in a reliable bike rack I could find. Combined with free shipping, it ended up being less than half of the price of the alternatives! This rack is really solid and very quick to take the bikes on and off. It is especially nice that the vertical bar can be rotated flat. This allows quick and painless access into the back of hatchback vehicles without having to remove the rack. A lot of good engineering thought went into this device.

    There are two minor points that prevent this item from having five stars. First, beware of the ratcheting top clamps, as they can be a real finger pincher if you are not careful. Second, even though the rack goes together painlessly and quickly, it would be better if the documentation discussed the more subtle but nice features and the best ways of loading and using the rack. For example it is important that the chain side of the two bikes face away from the center post, otherwise there is a clearance problem getting both bikes to fit. Another is the best way to load the first bike (remove both top clamps and rotate the vertical bar down to the back tire position). And yet another is the best approach for optimum positioning of the tire rings (keep all four loose until everything fits, no rubbing points exist and the bikes are centered behind the vehicle).

    All in all a great and solid product that will certainly outlast the bicycles it will be hauling around!

    A Great Bike Rack!, January 7, 2009

    This review is from: Swagman XC Cross-Country 2-Bike Hitch Mount Rack (1/1/4 and 2-Inch Receiver) (Automotive)
    This is a great bike rack for SUVs with rear door mounted spare tires. I’ve got a Toyota FJ Cruiser with a 32″x11″ mud tire mounted on the rear and this rack will easily clear this large tire.

    Here’s why I highly recommend this bike rack. First, it’s CHEAP, well made and easy to put together and install. Second, there’s a 19″ hitch extender that’s probably long enough to clear up to 35″ spare tires mounted to a rear door. Third, the hitch extender is attached to your 2″ hitch with a threaded hitch pin bolt that firmly secures the extender to the hitch, so that the extender doesn’t move around. Fourth, there are also 2 large pinch bolts that securely attaches to the bottom of the rack at the other end of extender, so that the rack doesn’t move around either; this setup is as “solid” as these things get. Fifth, you can choose to use the rack for one or 2 bikes, depending on your needs; ie., you don’t have to install the extra hoops and locking mechanism for a 2nd bike if you only carry one bike like I do. Sixth, your bike(s) is (are) firmly attached to the rack and released with a simple padded ratchet mechanism; no need for tie downs for the wheels and/or handles. All you have to do is place the bike in the tire hoops (which are easily adjusted side to side with a tension nut) and then lower the ratchet mechanism on to the bike’s cross bar until the bike is firmly secured and it doesn’t matter if you have a straight or slanted cross bar, so no special crossbar attachments to the bike are required either. Seventh, you can get into the back of your SUV by removing the bikes and removing the pin in the center vertical locking bar which allows you to lower it to one side or the other. This isn’t as convenient as the more expensive tilting or side arm set ups, but it’s not as expensive as them either. Eighth, you don’t have to lift and load the bikes up high on the car. The tire hoops are at the level of the hitch and aren’t perched precariously high up on the roof or on the tire, which makes loading an unloading a breeze. Ninth, if you need to carry more than 2 bikes, there’s an accessory that will allow you to carry 4. It doesn’t get much better than this!

    BTW, I couldn’t find a spare tire bike rack that would fit my 32×11″ spare tire, so if you have a spare tire that large or larger don’t even bother looking for a spare tire bike rack. There aren’t any that will work for tires that large. They are for designed for regular passenger sized tires only.

  5. @overcum1 There are two things you can do. First, I would try to turn off the closed captioning on your youtube settings. If that doesn't work, you can watch the same video on our site. If you go to the top right of this page underneath etrailertv's user name and the date the video was posted, there is a link that will take you to the video on our sight, which will work for you. Please let me know if I can help you with anything else!
