The Thule Archway has many great features.The Thule Archway has a special patented fit dial system that is designed to fit a wide variety of vehicles.It has a quick clenching system here with these gray levers on the left and right hand side of the carrier.This will allow you to quickly and conveniently bring the cradle arms out for bike loading and swing them back in for compact storage.To lock them in place, tighten this down and pull it in and as you can see here, this will clench the two pieces together.The cradle arms on the Thule Archway also move independently.This makes it easier to carry oddly-shaped frames and womens bike frames, which means even though the bike has a slanted frame, you will not need to use an adapter bar. The cradles on the Thule Archway feature RDT technology, which is Road Dampening Technology. What this does is it helps to reduce vibrations while you're traveling down the road, helping to protect your bike frame.As you can see here, on the underside of the cradle it's nice and soft for your bike frame. These grooves, here on the inside of the cradles, help to protect your brake lines from being damaged.The Thule Archway comes with an integrated cable lock, lock cords and keys that secure your bike to your bike rack. The lock cords can be swapped out to make all your Thule accessories keyed alike.What you will do, swing the cable lock out, bring it around your bike and hook it back into the top, like so. Not only does the Thule Archway have a built-in cable lock to secure your bike to the rack, but it also comes with its unique passive security strap to secure the bike rack to the vehicle. So what you would do is you would wrap this end around the top of the bike rack, feed this end through here and this end would dangle on the inside of your rear hatch.This would clinch against the rail.This would prevent them from taking it off.To help protect your vehicle's finish, there are foam pads on the bottom and the top part of the bike rack and all of the hooks are coated in a rubber paint.Its sturdy steel construction is durable and rust resistant.It has a carrying capacity of three bikes with a weight capacity of 105 pounds and comes with a limited lifetime warranty.

To begin our installation, we'll first need to refer to the Thule Fit Guide or the included instructions to determine what number our fit dial should be at.Now the vehicle that we're using for today's demonstration requires fit dial number 11.We'll push in this gray lever on both sides of the carrier and swing them out until it rests on our number. You'll hear the lever click in place when you know it has been engaged correctly. Now with our fit dial set, we'll go ahead and place the bike rack up onto the vehicles rear hatch.The bike rack in position, we'll go ahead and take the top straps and hook it to the top part of the hatch. Now with our first hook in place, I'm going to tighten up this strap just a little bit.
