Installing a Bike Rack

Hitch Bike Racks & Roof Bike Racks Explained

Lock it down! No matter if your new bike rack is a hitch mount or roof mount, always get a lock for your rack. The boldest bicycle bandits and parking lot purloiners are not easily discouraged, and simply locking your gear to an unlocked rack is an invitation to take everything—rack and all.

It Depends on Your Vehicle Model

Trunk mount racks will traditionally have foot pads that get positioned against the bottom of your trunk and securing straps that clip into place above the trunk lid. Once the rack is positioned properly, the securing straps are then tightened to ensure no slack is present. Before loading a bike, it’s not a bad idea to apply downward pressure with your hands to ensure the rack is sturdy and ready to load.

I'm on off-road enthusiast behind the wheel of a perpetual project 4x4 Tacoma. I like to play in the rocks, but won't shy away from fast runs through the desert. My passion came from my dad whose had me in and around cars for as long as I can remember.
