Has a seatpost strap to help prevent the bikes from swinging around (but at highway speeds my two bikes still found each other). Bikes mount quickly and securely. It fits onto my jeep liberty withou the need for an extender! The gate can't open but I can still get in my glass.
The adapter that allows for mounting into a 2" hitch is aluminium and has a loose fit. Might have to replace the spaced in a few years. Sam Adams beer botttle caps cannot be opened with the beer opener! The lock kit is good to secure at the hitch but the cable will only be able to lock the bike at the end of the poles, so I use a cable lock around the main post when I haul 1 bike close to the vehicle.
Buy this rack to confidently haul your bikes and not for opening your beers.
