Unfortunately I'm going to return this item. It was not nearly as user friendly as I had expected it to be. I was unable to securely fit this rack on to the back of my vehicle. The rack straps just didn't cinch up tight enough, consequently the rack tended to slosh around on my trunk. I also found the adjustability of the rack pivoting mechanism to be a bit clunky. It was difficult to adjust and fold down for storage. It just didn't live up to the THULE standard of quality I have come to expect.
