Does the Swagman Around the Spare Mighty Bike Rack Hold the Spare Tire


Is the spare tire held in place by a bolt or plate or something? It looks like it just sits in place. What prevents it from jumping out if you hit a bump in the road? I would definately like to give this a try next year! Thanks.

The Swagman Around the Spare Mighty Rack, # S80501, is designed to fit around a spare tire that is already mounted to the back of an RV or trailer and is not designed to hold the tire. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you to view.

This rack is designed to fit on a continuous welded steel bumper that is 4 inches to 4-1/2 inches square. Make sure to check the owners manual to be sure the bumper can be used for this application. We do have several other bike racks that are rated for use behind an RV or trailer. I have included a link to them for you.
