This Apex 4 bike swing away is the best built, best looking, versatile and convenient bike rack I have ever owned/used. With a small SUV, the swing away is great. I have owned for over 4 years, and have had no issues, including any strap breaks. The straps are not expensive, so carry a few spares in trunk,,,just in case (However, as I said, none have broken yet). The rack is left on all season. May have posted this same review to swing away 4 bike Vertex rack site. Sorry, I have the Apex 4 bike swing away.
