I found that to be the best fit for our inaudible 00:00:49 here.Just a quick tip for you, if you fancy your paint job, I highly recommend just wiping it down just so a lot of that dirt and stuff isn't being pushed down onto your paint to make marks. So we did that, and another thing we need to do is, you notice this pad here, it's nice and wavy on the round end, we want that to be down. more

Kuat  Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2014 Volkswagen Passat

Speaker 1: Today on our 2014 Volkswagen Passat we're gonna be doing a test fit on a Kuat Highline Three Bike Trunk Mount Rack. That part number's HIT3S.Now we have the silver installed right now, however it does come in black under part number HIT3B.This is a trunk mounted bike rack that mounts to the trunk of your vehicle, and it can carry up to three bikes. This is gonna be one of the nice hybrid versions of a trunk mount bike rack. It's very light, so it's gonna be very easy to install, but it's also gonna be durable and be able to support your bikes very well.If we look at the bike and how it's attached to the rack, excuse me, we're gonna see we have to ratchet straps on the top of our bike frame securing it into the cradles. We also have a third point with an anti-sway cradle and a strap. Once we secure that, that's gonna prevent our bike from swaying too much while we're traveling. more

Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Subaru Outback we're going to be doing a test-fit on the Hollywood racks over the top two bike carrier. And that part number is HRF2. This bike rack is specifically designed for vehicles that have these spoilers at the top of their hatch so that it can prevent any type of damage from occurring.As you can see the connection points for straps from the bike rack to the top of the hatch isn't adding on any extra weight or pull onto the spoilers, which is going to help protect it from any type of damage. Seeing our bike installed right here we're going to see it secured at three different points of contact.We have two straps on the top of our frame and we have this anti-sway strap securing it into this cradle. Once that's secured, that's going to prevent the bike from swaying too much while we're traveling and prevent the bike from making contact with the rear of our vehicle or with the other bike we could have installed.Let's go ahead and remove it. I'm going to just remove these straps like that. more

Hollywood Racks Express Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2017 Hyundai Elantra

Speaker 1: Today on our 2017 Hyundai Elantra we're going to be doing a test fit on the Hollywood Rack's Express Three Bike Carrier, part number HRE3.Now this is a very economical bike rack and what I mean by that is that if you're just looking for a bike rack to get you from point A to point B with your bikes this is going to be great for you. However, if you're more of an avid cyclist, I would suggest maybe doing a little bit more research and trying to find a bike rack with a little bit more bells and whistles.Let's go into the bike rack itself, we see we have cradles that can pivot left and right, and that can also move up and down the rack to accommodate any spacing between bikes you might want. We have two different points of contact where our bike is secured. We have these nice rubber straps that are securing the top frame of our bike into the cradles. I do want to point out because we don't have any type of anti-sway or anti-rattle cradle in place, our bike can move freely when we're driving and with it sitting pretty close to the vehicle, so you do want to be aware that it could make contact like this pedal right here is pretty close to our license plate, and we also have our front wheel up here that's pretty close to making contact. However, to fix this problem you could purchase a wheel shock separately at etrailer.com and just secure the front wheel to that.Let's go ahead and remove the bike. more
