Adjustable levers on the bike rack allow it to be modified to the necessary angle and fit the back of your vehicle. A ‘Fit Guide’ tells you exactly what angle to set the rack to depending on the make, model and year of your vehicle. Pressing down — firmly — on the levers allows the bike rack to be adjusted to the proper angle.
The bike rack uses three different straps with two hooks on each to secure to the back of a vehicle. This includes two hooks at the top, one on either side, and two at the base of the trunk. As with any bike rack, the securing process can be difficult at first, but watching related videos on Youtube.com can make the process easier. Thule could also post videos of its own or take steps to ensure that its instructional manual, which comes in four different languages, is clearer.
