Today we are going to show you part number S64720 from Swagman. This is the Swagman upright roof rack. This will fit a variety of different types of roof racks that are on the market. We have one installed on a Thule roof rack and we will show you how it works. The bicycle rack will attach to the roof rack, like so, with basically a U bolt and a clamp and a couple of tension knobs. Then also on the front of the rack, with the pivot point it also clamps into place around the roof rack. It has 2 knobs on top and there is a set of 4 upfront here. Next we will show you the clamp that actually does the work on the bike itself. This clamp right here has nice rubber padding on both sides of the knob. And basically you just use this knob to screw them together and that clamps into place on your bicycle. And also, there is a built in lock here. So when you tighten it down to leave your bike on the roof rack you can simply lock it and then the handle free wheels so it will not go anywhere and you can not take it off.
We will go ahead and put a bicycle on here and show you how it works. Simply fit the wheels into the track, you do not have to worry about taking off the front wheel with this model. You can roll the bike back and forth as you need to get the jaws into place. Once you have it into place you can simply go ahead and clamp it down. Next we need to do our wheel straps, just a little buckle basically. Pull it as tight as you can. There is one for each wheel. Alright, the bike is installed and it is ready to go down the road. And there you have it for part number S64720 from Swagman, their upright roof rack.
