"I was looking for a new cycle carrier which wouldn't rest on the car paintwork as my existing rack needed strapping and clips to the boot lid, occasionally scratching it.
I saw this on the internet and was intrigued as it just sits on a standard tow ball and clamps on.
Got it home, unpacked and mounted on the tow bar - its as is it was welded; there's no play, no bounce, extremely secure and strong. Would recommend to anybody with a tow bar, well away from the car and solid; The drop down facility also eases access to the boot itself - very useful."

Pros: so easy to use
"Very easy to attach to towball and surprisingly stable. Takes two bikes easily, yet to try it with three, but can't see there being a problem.
Excellent value for money. The delivery was fast too.

Pros: tiltable for boot access, quality product
Cons: optional extra bolt lock suspect ability
"I recently changed cars and unfortunately my previous bike rack no longer fitted. I considered a roof mount but decided that having to use a step ladder everytime would be fraught with various risks so decided on a towbar model. However was concerned about a solid fitting. Needn't have worried. Thule quality and design of this are superb. Follow the instructions and it is really solid. Love being able to tilt the rack so that I can access the boot, which I couldn't do on my last rack. I have only used it for 2 bikes so far, but no problems. I also purchased the optional extra fixing bolt lock, but am not confident that this would deter a determined thief as it is light weight material."
