Take advantage of no overhead lifting, plus total access to the cargo area of your SUV, mini-van or truck. Even when fully loaded, this rack's unique, patent-pending design allows it to glide away from the vehicle for convenient access to cargo area. Rack also pivots from side to side for added vehicle access convenience. Anti-wobble device eliminates play so that rack fits snugly into 2" receiver hitch; safety latch automatically locks rack to hitch when closed. Advantage(TM) saddles provide scratch-free, stable attachment for four bikes. Saddles fit bikes with 1" to 2" top-tubes, or can be rotated on support arms to accomodate women's, BMX and complex geometry frames. Ready for rough use, the strong steel tubing construction with phosphate treatment and powder-coated finish is corrosion- and rust-resistant. Travel lock secures rack to receiver hitch for added protection against bumpy roads. For theft deterrence, use your own padlock with the included cable to secure bikes to rack. Rack can be left on vehicle with support arms easily removed and out of the way when not in use. Rack installs easily in 5 minutes.
