I purchased this unit at the end of last season last year and I love it. Very easy to put on my Thule bike holder also,also safe and secure. Best add on I've purchased

I just bought this for my Jeep (using it combination with my Thule spare tire bike rack). It's awesome! I was unsure about buying it after reading some other comments, but I went for it and I'm really happy with it. My snowboard is very secure, you can lock it, and it sits high enough that the snow and ice don't get it dirty. I really don't know what some of those other people were saying, but this is definitely a great rack!! LOVE IT!!!!

Works great for me I can store 4 snowboards in it and they are pretty secure. It will even fit wide snowboards!

asked on 2/5/2012:
Do you sell the lock and bolt accessory to the hitch ski carrier?
The Thule Hitch Ski Carrier isn't sold with lock cores. Most of Thules Hitch Racks are sold with a locking cable that locks both the bikes and the hitch ski to the rack. We do sell a locking cable that we can key the same as your Thule rack. (538XT). If you have any questions you can contact us at 303-399-6900.
