Very solid, well made rack, holds the bikes high. Bad - this thing is very heavy, inconvenient to attach to car and two of the rubber straps broke after 5 or 6 uses

Easy to install, however the screw/bolt that attaches to the hitch is not long enough. I need to order a snug tite receiver lock. I wish the sales person had told me that. there is not detailed instructions to install anti-sway cages. I looks good but it is quite bulky. I wanted some low profile bicycle carrier so I can keep it attached all Summer long.
