After the initial installation of the adapter plate behind the tire, the main rack is easily installed and removed with the locking screw knob. Two adapter plates are included to fit the widest range of tire sizes. The mounting position adapts from center mounted spare tires to left or right of center to keep the bikes centered behind the vehicle.
This "PRO" version includes an integrated security cable to lock the bicycles to the rack and the cable lock is key matched to the locking knob which locks the carrier to the spare. The extended arms easily fold down and out of the way between uses.
Bikes are held in protective Stay-Put Cradles and are kept stable with anti-sway cages. A front wheel strap is included to stop front wheels from swiveling.
