I don't love it because it feels really insecure, it feels like it is going to break, because when you wobble it with the bikes on it really flexes and seems like the thing will just break. They do offer two straps to secure the central metal bar to the car. The only thing is that the strap is not long enough to reach my volvo XC90, so I have to tie the strap to one of the bikes instead, this feels bodgy, why could they have not just made them longer!

It took me 2 hours to put together, you need spanners, a socket wrench is helpful, screw drivers and lots of patience. Getting the plastic wheel stops on the horizontal bars is not easy until you work out a way to do it, you need pliers for that.

You need a socket wrench to screw the thing onto the toe hook, I don't really like the design of it, it does not seem that secure and does not hold the bike rack horizontally to the ground, and I think it gets worse and ends up sagging down a little more.

I can't help but think I should have opted for an expensive bike rack, but I brought this in a rush.

So it's ok if you put the straps and if the straps fit your car. Also once the straps on on the car, they can't come off easily, so right now the strap is just dangling off the back of the car, what is needed is a couple of different types of hooks to hook to the top of your boot.

Also the picture in the item listing does not show the straps that you attach to the car, in the manual it shows the straps, and I would not be comfortable not using it, and I don't want to test it to breaking point, I tested it with two adult bike and one child bike, I just can't imagine putting 4 adult bikes on there and no strap! I wouldn't even try it as it is now.

A very good carrier. It was slow to arrive ( by standard mail ). It was packed well and undamaged. If your not a fan of self assembly then beware, this has many, many parts, it took a long time to build initally. The quality is excellent, its well made from good materials except the light holder, this is plastic moulded but very thin, it can be braced to improve it but it shakes alot on the road and is a concirn when storing the rack when not in use.
This has a modern trailer socket and an adapter to 7 pin is supplied, but the adapter is not good quality. In use this is very good overall, it is secure on the ball and the bikes can be quickly loaded/unloaded. It takes some time to set up the bike position initally ( but im sure they are all like that ), it can be stored flat when not in use. I am pleased with this rack it holds 4 heavy, large bikes without damaging them.

As a 4 bike rack generally good.

Aluminium extrusions are tough and a decent length.

Plastic end caps are a fiddle and I can't imagine them taking much to break through general use.

Once on the car it was sturdy enough - the extra straps to attach were just about long enough (is on an s-max). The front bike is a bit close to the car boot - but that's as much to do with the shape of the car.

You need a 24mm socket (well - only one i had was 15/16ths) or decent spanner to attach the clamp onto the tow bar. This is a bit clunky and definitely easier with two pairs of hands.

Assembly is a bit of a faff. Instructions are not bad but it takes a little while to work out what actually goes where. Took me a good hour going steady and only tightening when I was sure things were right. Even then I took the front rail back off because it would be better to have the electrics over the top of the frame rather then trailing underneath. For tools you need two x 10mm, 2x13mm and a fiddly little 6ish mm for the lights.

By far the biggest flaw though is the plastic light guard/ bumper. This is blow moulded plastic and very flimsy. It was already cracked slightly when it arrived (and there was no sign of rough handling in transit). It must have cost literally a pound to turn out in volume. In brilliant Italian design sense this is also the lowest part of the assembly at the rear - so every time the rack is off the car (which is probably going to be the majority of the time) you are going to be standing it on this flimsy frame.

Having saved money on the manufacture of this part it would have been good if there were clips to hold the number plate in place on it - but there aren't - so you have to come up with your own plan (whether that's double sided tape or drilling holes for bolts).

Overall not bad for the price for a 4 bike rack and delivered on time / well packaged / with all the assurance that Amazon has.
