Reviews

Tightening Knob on the rack needs a ton of bumper clearance

1

Wouldn't fit a 2019 QX50 - tightening knob that sits on an angle on the rack mount itself prevents the hitch from sliding fully into the hitch receptacle without damaging bumper. No fit manuals ever point this out. Poorly placed knob design.

I like the fact that the rack can be locked to the car and that the bikes can be locked to the rack. I also like the fact that I can leave the rack on my car for long periods and it does not obstruct my rear hatch.
