Works. – I got one of these today. It took 30 minutes to install in the bed of my truck. Works just like it should. Easy in and out. Lock works. It is only strong enough to keep honest people from stealing it. If you rocked it hard enough you could destroy it or rip the bike out of it. I work with metal. Its aluminum and its nice…but they aren’t bulletproof. I would imagine there are bad ones, parts cut or bent just enough out of tolerance to make it useless. Mine works great though. Holds a big aluminum Giant Yukon in the back of my truck even with the way I drive.
BIKE FORK – I purchased the small one as I use it for my Nissan Frontier(TITAN ALSO WORKS) bed rail system. I purchased it without knowing it would fit and luckily it is the perfect fork mount to attach to my trucks bed rail system.It doesn’t have a lock but if you don’t plan in leaving your bike in the car, truck, etc it’s just perfect. Good construction and appearance.
MATERIALS NEEDED FOR NISSAN FRONTIER
1. (2)1/4 – 2 1/2” long screws
2. (2)1/4 nuts
3. (64) 1/4 washer, 32 on each screw
Works as intended – I bought a couple and they work great. They really
make transporting my bikes an easy task.
sturdy and versitile, – I bought this and the equivalent Thule mount for my truck. Other than having to fiddle with the mounting for my F150 to be without drilling into the rail system this was super easy to install. Does not appear to be as robust as the Thule but does the job. The Thule can be used as an additional anchor point for bungee cords in the bed though, which is a small plus for the Thule.
