How to Lock Bikes for Security When Using the Swagman Pick-Up 2 Bike Carrier # S64702


Do you sell locking fork founts that fit this bar? If I am reading the description correctly the fork mounts do not lock which defeats the purpose. Thank you.

The Swagman Pick-Up Truck-Bed-Mounted 2 Bike Carrier # S64702 comes with an integrated lock for the rack itself. If you would like to lock your bikes as well you will need to add a cable lock like part # e98891. You can also add some extra security to the adjustment lever by installing a padlock like part # 131D.

If you would rather have a truck bed bike rack that has integrated locks for both the rack and your bikes then the Swagman Patrol # S64701 is what you are looking for. This has a lock for the rack and the fork mounts plus the forks are installed on a track system making them more difficult to get at.

Please note that any lock can be defeated given enough time, determination, and the right tools. The best way to keep your equipment from being stolen is by making it look very hard to get at. This will help to deter people from even trying to mess with any locks that you have. If security is a big issue where you live I recommend adding the cable lock to the Patrol if you go that route so that it looks even more difficult to beat.
