How To Use The Curt Trailer Hitch Support Strap Part # 18050  


Hi, It was recommended to me to purchase a Curt Bike Rack Support Strap by someone in your company. I did, but now I am confused what I am supposed to do with it. The background is that I also purchased a hitch and new bike carrier Hollywood TRS rack. Please let me know what I do with the support strap. Thanks!

The Curt Trailer Hitch Support Strap part # 18050 is required to be used with all Curt Class I hitch receivers for all non-towing purposes. As you are using the hitch to secure a bike rack, you will need to use this strap to further support the load and minimize jostling.

In order to install the support strap, you will need to slide the looped end around the upright mast of the bike rack and then pull up and over the arms. You will then need to attach the hook to the vehicle using either the trunk pan or hatch. The integrated cam buckle feature is designed to remove all slack for the line for a tight fit.

This can all be seen in the video I have attached for you.
