    mostly solid and cheap enough to reinforce, March 12, 2013

    The most common complaint I see in regards to these universal mounts in general seems to be related to straps coming loose. Also common for these types is the price; sub $100 and ripe to be reinforced with a set of ratchet tie downs from a discount tool joint such as harbor freight. I got my rack for 50 and spent less than $10 on a set of 4 ratchet straps.

    Mounting on a 2011 kia sportage ( you might ask why not roof Mount for an SUV; I’d answer more expensive, and add shortness and bad back and legs for some potential disaster), the top straps are mostly there to provide stability as they pull over the rear spoiler. However the side and bottom straps are one piece and therefore benefit immensely from additional torque. Mount at all three points with as much tension as you can manually apply. Then attach each ratchet to excess strap and loop its hook to the opposite lower bend of the frame. The bends have a smaller diameter as such will accommodate smaller universal hooks while preventing slippage to the larger unbent tube section. Repeat for the other side evenly and you will have cross tension giving you some serious lateral stability. The upper straps can also be further stabilized with ratchets however not without risk of damaging the spoiler/light fixture on a SUV hatch like mine, I only ratchet enough to prevent vertical slippage rather than increased tension.

    Once bikes are mounted, check straps one more time to maximize tension as the foam cushions will compress. Most significant downside is that there is small chance of three adult bikes fitting. I have one adult huffy with baby seat, one child huffy and one adult mongoose and they just barely fit in that order with some serious wiggling and Lego fitting to make them all sit together. Semi benefit is that theyre so packed together you might be able to get away without using a bungee strap or two. Maybe not even a bike chain as it would take some time for a thief to offload your frankenbike rack.

    I received this item and use it for my 200 Honda Accord. Is very sturdy … and holds cycles well. Easy to Install. Only issue is bike mounting sockets move back an forth on the mounting rod – I can live with that. Over all I am very satisfied.

    Strong Rack but tough to setup, September 15, 2007
    By 
    Julie (New York, NY) –

    This bike rack is strong and feels secure when it’s set up but the actual setup is tricky. I have a sedan and the side straps don’t work on the side of the trunk (they’ll just slip off) I put both the side and lower straps on the lower part of the trunk and pulled them tight- this seems to work well. I drove a couple thousand miles with the rack and had no problem. It folds for storage- which is nice.
