This is a top quality product and comes with a quality light board. All you need is a number plate. But even here, the light board has plastic lugs which pop out and grab the number plate so you don't have to drill it or use sticky pads.

It may take a while to build confidence in the rack as it is quite simply grabbing hold of just the tow ball. It's crucial therefore to tighten the clamp bolt to the manufacturers specs. I might see if I can get hold of a long socket so I can use a torque wrench.

The only thing I would ask Thule to do is provide a longer lighting lead. Our 7 pin sockets are hidden beneath the bumber, like many 'concealed' systems these days. The Thule lead just won't reach so we have to use a coiled extension lead which means additional expense and hassle. This is a minor niggle though

Excellent bikerack, covered 2000 miles with 3 bikes on it. Was unable to open boot with rack of bikes tilted, but was prepared for this. Easy to build and fit but had to buy connector adaptor for Zafira electrics. Bikes felt secure through out trip and car wasn't scratched or view disrupted as with back window rack. Bikes removed easiy unlike roof mount. Classed as bike rack on ferry crossing even though sticks out considerably.

Great bike carrier! If you have tow bar this one is a must. Comes with build instructions which are easy to follow and once put together is a very sturdy carrier. Once attached to the car it tilts allowing access to your boot which is a great help. During the journey the bikes feel completly safe. Highly recommended!

Had to buy a new bike carrier as my new car has a swan neck rather than a flange towbar & the old one didn't fit. Lighter than my previous carrier so easier to put on the car. Bought at the best price anywhere & worth every penny. It will fit either style of towbar so will never have to worry about style of towbar fitted again. Delighted with it.

Used to have the older two bike version (9502) of this carrier and was so impressed that i bought the 3 bike version(9503). I've done a review on amazon for the 9502 as well.
Again I found this carrier quite straight forward to assemble, and it only took a little while to complete.
Fits onto the towbar by a simple 'cup' bracket that has a single bolt holding it. The bolt has a gnurled surface that allows it to be finger tightened, though you the need to use the supplied 19mm spanner (or one of your own) to tighten the bolt fully. Once again i found this to be quite easy. Note the 19mm bolt seems to have changed a bit and now has a flange on it that may make fitting the 'lock' (not supplied) a bit difficult. I ended up swapping for the old bolt. Best to check!

Relatively easy to fit the bikes to.I found i needed to put one arm through the frame holding the bike, whilst i put a strap round the upright on the carrier and the bike frame to hold it in place. once in place the straps could be threaded around the wheels on the carrier to hold it more securely and then adjust the upright strap to ensure everything is held firmly. for peace of mind, you can also add extra straps round the upright and other bikes. Fiited two adult mountain bikes and a childs bike easily. Have also fitted 3 adult road bikes, though needed to move saddle heights to ensure all 3 fitted, may not be a problem for others
The carrier is tiltable to allow access to the boot/hatch, though i understand that this may not be the case on all cars, especially some of the people carrier types.

A very well thought out piece of kit. We drove from Bedford to Aberdeen and back and the bikes were rock steady the whole time. My doubts about the towball mounting were completely unfounded - the towball clamp is very strong indeed. We only have two bikes at the moment but I decided that the three bike carrier offered more flexibility for little extra cost. It also gave a bit more boot clearance when carrying two bikes. Overall, a highly recommended product.

Yep, it's a three bike carrier. It carries three bikes. Fairly straightforward to put together, nice and sturdy, and fits neatly into the boot of a medium sized car when not in use - provided you haven't got too much in there. Make sure you check the tightness of the mounting bolt after you've put the bikes on board though, as the slight adjustment in position caused by the extra weight can give it just enough play to swing sideways. Other than that, it's the most practical bike rack I've ever used.

I have the 2-bike version of this, rather than the 3-bike version. It is advertised as allowing 'boot access' by tilting. Nowhere on the packaging (or on descriptions on internet sites) does it say that you may only be able to open the tailgate a few inches. Any pictures show a car with tilted bikes and a tailgate fully open.

When I wrote to complain that my tailgate would not open fully, all they said was that I should have tried it out before buying it. How can you do this if buying on the internet? Or even if you buy it from somewhere like Halfords? It comes in pieces which you have to assemble yourself.

So - if you choose this because you want access to your boot without taking the bikes off, just be aware that you might not get it!
