Although this is perfect for a hatch back vehicle, it does not swing enough to fully open the tailgate on a pickup truck as I had hoped.

I love how you can quickly change this rack from a 4 bike rack to a 2 bike rack by removing one bolt and then sliding the secondary rack off. I drove with 2 bikes on the rack for an 8 hr round trip after I bought it and they held very secure the entire time. I have yet to try it with 4 bikes. Ignore the reviewer who mentioned that the vertical arms that clamp the bike frame can't rotate - the manual explains how to rotate them by first pressing a button to unlock them. It's a great feature!

The bike rack works very well. The downside is it is very heavy. However once you have it installed it works extremely easy and very secure. Direct is a perfect solution if you need access to a cargo area and need to be able to leave the bikes on the rack and get them out-of-the-way. Much better than a full down option.
