The rack has worked great for us.
Brewpaul
It was a bit hard to assemble, the hitch nut that goes inside the receiver pole would not stay still while mounting.
Kathleen Wadley
Tried lots of things to try to make it better, but nothing seems to help.

This a good rack for the price. It is made solidly, easy to install, keeps the bikes well secured, and looks pretty good. It is also very convenient to be able to bring your bikes along, but still have all the storage in your truck bed or SUV for passengers and stuff. There are a couple other things worth mentioning, though...

The 'drop-down' feature is nice in theory, but a pain to use in reality. Since you have to have the rack empty anyway, it's easier to just un-bolt the whole thing instead of fighting it.

All of the negative reviews mention the bikes in the rack "swaying", but I've never seen it happen. I've only loaded two bikes on it, but never seen them move much. Maybe the other reviewers didn't follow the instructions... there's a plastic piece that holds the nut in place (one moron reviewer used tape! no wonder it didn't work well...), and there's another plastic piece to use if you have a 2" hitch receiver (another idiot reviewer tried to use "shims" - again, no surprise that it didn't work...). If you follow the directions, the rack is very stable! One more thing - the people saying that it isn't secure might not have tightened the bolt that goes through the vehicle's hitch mount! You can't just thread it enough to slide in the cotter pin - you need to tighten it down all the way WITH a wrench! The cotter pin is only there in case the bolt works itself loose - so the rack will wobble instead of dumping all of your bikes on the highway!

Overall I think this is a good rack for the money. It folds down so you can open your trucks hatch in the back without removing the rack.

I have seen a few reviews that said it is not sturdy. This is WRONG! There is a special 3/4" bolt with about 3/4" of thread only near the head of the bolt. This must go through the hitch and then thread into the the racks threaded mounting tube hole. Before inserting the locking pin, you MUST TIGHTEN THIS BOLT WITH A 3/4" WRENCH! This will tightly clamp the mounting tube to the hitch. If you do not, it will be very wobbly. If you do, it is as solid as a rock. Don't overlook this installation technique. As another reviewed mentioned, the locking pin is only in case the bolt would happen to work itself loose over a very long trip. This is unlikely to happen if tightened sufficiently and the provided lock washer is used.

This bike rack does a great job of holdig the bikes. It is very sturdy and I love how the tie downs work. It is nothing like bike racks of long ago where you had to use bunge cords and rope. It was a bit hard to assemble, the hitch nut that goes inside the receiver pole would not stay still while mounting. We ended up having to tape it in place and then it worked. I also like that it can adjust so you can get into the trunk.

The set-up was easy and the bikes were easy enough to load, but when used in a 2-in. hitch it wobbles like crazy! I was a nervous wreck just driving across town watching our bikes sway 45 degrees on every right turn. I had a neighbor who knows alot about bike racks look at it and he said it was assembled right, but it's just not that tight in a 2 inch hitch.

Bought it; set it up and stuck in on. Loaded bikes and feared for my life! Far too slack a fit in the 2 inch hitch for this thing ever to stay vertical; off by a good 30 degrees; tried to shim it but no joy. Packed it up and returned it within the hour.

Am buying the Allen 4 Bike rack based on good Amazon reviews.

I bought this product several months ago, and brought it home. The cardboard package exploded when I drug it out of the truck, and the instructions warranty, and god knows what else blew away in the wind faster than glam rock fell out of style. As I stood there teary eyed watching my guidance flap away into traffic, I promptly got mad and tossed the components into the closet and forgot about it.

Tonight, I found them again and started to get ambitious. It took 20 minutes to assemble with a tap hammer, box wrench, and no instructions. It is easy to build as it's so simple.

I took it out the old ford truck, I have a two inch hitch, and broke down the rack and put it in. My hitch is a little rusty as I haven't had a receiver in for a few months. And the plastic adapter they sell you does allow it to fit a wee bit loose. So if you hitch is over wide, you'll get a lot of wobble. If you have extremely valuable bikes, this might make you pucker a bit. But MY bikes are Schwinn junk for my Schwinn rack.

When I went to lift it up into the secure position it wouldn't close. The factory spare mounts on a swing arm that locks to the back of the vehicle. I was literally lacking 1/4" to get the pivot completely aligned to reinstall the cotter pin. I was extremely frustrated. I then took it back out (the plastic adapter stays in the receiving hitch every time) and set the cotter pivot pin in place, immobilizing the unit. I then put in back into the receiver to see how short the mount was. I then tapped the base with a mallet driving it into the receiver with more force the hands, but still gently... and it fit. Unmodified (with luck) this will fit a Full Size Ford Bronco.
