The Thule arrived timely and the packaging seems as modest/green in size as is possible. The manual follows the standard, picture x list of bits, followed by pictures and list of assembly instructions. On the whole it is simple to follow and the parts are well made and fit well.
The only disappointment is in the actual fitting to the car. There are specific printed details for a range of cars. This could be enhanced by an online longer list. The Thule website is conspicuous not having a forum to facilitate this.
The main niggle was that the rubber strips to cover the 4 car attachment hooks were missing from my box. On a product of this quality this was a mystery. Is it a quality control issue? Bottom line, very annoying on an otherwise splendid product and the reason for the dropped star.
So intial impressions are that I have bought the best bike rack in the world. Quick & easy to fit, quality build, but with small fixable niggles, Thule needs a web forum and to fix missing parts.
Looks very nice when attached to the car unlike many other cheaper brands. Doing 70mph- 80mph on the motorway and everything seems secure.
*** Update July 19th, 2013...due to hot summer I have been using this frequently...still happy with it and I doubt there is a better option at this price point. I want to point out tho that the 2 hooks/hinges at the top and bottom that attach the Clipon to the top and bottom of the hatch need to be attached carefully. I've noticed a few small marks from putting the frame on the back of my old 1995 VW Polo. Once you have this on the car it is rock solid but if you are installing and removing frequently care definitely needs to be taken.
It may not look it from the pictures, but bikes are extremely stable when mounted. The carrier grabs the door firmly at 4 places and the bikes are held in place by their weights pressing on toothed rubber rings on the carrier. The bikes are additionally fastened with rubber straps, and their bottoms are fastened to the bottom of the carrier with a nylon strap to prevent them from swinging when accelerating. The result is nothing short of amazing - there is no jiggling whatsoever, and trying to jiggle the bikes literally shakes the car instead.
It takes some patience to fit three bikes on the carrier, but with practice it becomes second nature. Ditto for bikes with non-standard frames, such as women bikes, mountain bikes with very small frames, or city bikes with front baskets. But after some experimenting, almost any type of bike can be mounted.
Two words of warning:
* Rear-mounted bikes will partially obscure the lights on the back and the license plate. On my car the lights were still visible, but the license plate was hard to read, especially with three mounted bikes. Depending on where you are, this might earn you a ticket from the local police.
* Despite Thule providing rubber fittings for the part of the carrier that grabs hold of the door, it is almost inevitable that some paint will be scratched with extended use. Think twice before putting this on a brand new car that you don't want scratched.
After several years of use, I moved on to a towbar-mounted carrier (as my new car has a spoiler that prevents ClipOn from attaching), but my brother is still a happy user of the ClipOn.
