Video Transcript for Saris Trunk Bike Racks SA3035 Review

Speaker 1: Today we'll be reviewing part number SA3035. These are the Hatch Huggers from Saris for the Saris Trunk Mountain bike racks. They are going to replace the Saris Bones bike rack standard top straps for vehicles requiring a more custom. The anchor is racked by threaded through the gap between your hatchback's trunk and roof. These are made in the USA and come with a limited lifetime warranty. I did undo one of these and measured them.

We have about 74 inches of just strap not including the bumper. So, from right here all the way to the end of our strap that's rolled we have about 74 inches. That's just a little bit over six foot. In order to install these you would first need to remove the S-hook straps from the buckles that are currently on the Trunk Mountain bike rack. Then you can open your vehicle trunk or hatch and insert the end of the hatch hugger strap between the hatch and vehicle's body.

You want to make sure that there's no interference when the hatch and trunk is closed. Then you can freely close your hatch or trunk. You'll take the end of the strap and through the hatch hugger strap through the carrier buckle that are attached to your trunk mountain bike rack and you want to be sure to keep the straps in line with the rear legs. This will help prevent your carrier from shifting. Once you have all that in place you can continue mounting the carrier as instructed in your owner's manual as you are used to.

Now on the instructions that come with these hatch huggers. We have a vehicle compatibility chart. That'll show you with what vehicles these straps are compatible with and that completes today's review of the Saris Hatch Huggers for the Saris Trunk Mountain bike racks, part number SA3035. .

Very easy to use and works great. However, because of the clearance between my hatch/trunk I have to remove the huggers from the bike carrier before or after using the bike carrier. The clearance on my BMW 430i Grand Coups does not have enough room to install from the outside. 397473

So far so good but I haven't used them that much. We are using them on a Honda CRV (in combination with a bike rack we also purchased from here); it's a little awkward setting the system up but once it's in place they work great. It may be me, but we needed to use these on the bottom of the hatch not the top as indicated but we made it work. Secures nicely. We drove from New England to South Carolina without a single problem. Actually the only problem was the rear wiper on the car that apparently won't shut off and got snagged on the rack itself. Otherwise 100% happy with the product - can't fault the product for the car issues. 414740

  • Recommended Budget Bike Rack for 2015 Honda CR-V
  • I have a few different recommendations for your 2015 Honda CR-V that you will want to look at. The Saris Sentinel 3 Bike Carrier # SA1052 will fit on the trunk of your Honda so you can make sure that the space on your roof and cargo area remains free. Keep in mind you will also need to get the Hatch Huggers for Saris Trunk Mount Bike Racks # SA3035 for installation on any of the Saris brand bike racks. Since it looks like you have some varying bike frames that might not sit properly...

  • Installing the Saris Bones 2-Bike Rack on a 2016 Subaru Outback
  • For the Saris Bones 2 Bike Carrier - Adjustable Arms - Trunk Mount - Black # SA805BL to fit properly on your 2016 Subaru Outback, the bottom supports will go on the rear bumper. The side straps need to be replaced with the Hatch Huggers for Saris Trunk Mount Bike Racks # SA3035 which will simply fit in the gap and will cinch tight when the hatch is closed. I recommend the Saris Cable Lock - 8' Long # SA981 as well as the Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's, Children's,...

  • Recommended Trunk-Mount Bike Rack for 2017 BMW 430i Gran Coupe
  • The Saris Bones 2 Bike Carrier # SA805BL referenced in your question is confirmed to fit your 2017 BMW 430i Gran Coupe. For this vehicle, you will just need to add the Saris Hatch Huggers # SA3035 to replace the top hooks on the Carrier. This carrier can hold up to 2 bikes at 35 pounds each. If you plan on carrying any woman's, children's or alternative frame bikes, you may need to use an adapter bar like the Swagman # 64005. This will provide a horizontal mounting point for level transport....

  • How to Install Hatch Huggers on a Hatchback 2017 Kia Soul
  • I reached out to Saris to see how they install Hatch Huggers, part # SA3035 They recommend the following steps: 1.) Put the Hatch Huggers inside the rear door with the straps vertical. 2.) Close the rear hatch. 3.) Shimmy the straps up to the side of the hatch near the install location. 4.) Install the Saris Bones rack per normal instructions, skipping the side straps. 5.) Feed the Hatch Hugger Straps into the side quick release mechanisms.

  • Carrying More than 2 Bikes on a 2017 Honda HR-V
  • The trailer hitches designed for the 2017 Honda HR-V are all Class I hitches and they are not likely going to produce a Class II hitch for it. Since the hitches are Class I you will be limited to 2 bikes maximum on a Class I hitch even if the bike rack can hold more. The issue is not the amount of weight but the distance of that weight from the receiver. What I recommend is to use a trunk mount bike rack that holds 3 bikes. If the kid's bike is small enough you might be able to put it...

  • 2-Bike Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2007 Nissan Versa Hatchback
  • There are quite a few 2-bike trunk mount bike racks that will fit your 2007 Nissan Versa hatjchback. I have included a link to them for you. The Saris Bones, # SA805BL, is a popular option. It is light weight and easy to use. For it to fit you will also need Hatch Huggers # SA3035. The Hatch Huggers allow for the proper fit of the rack to the top of the hatch to avoid putting too much stress on it which can occur with the regular hooks. I have included links to videos on the rack and...

  • Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2015 GLA 250
  • We have a trunk mounted bike rack that has been confirmed to fit your 2015 Mercedes GLA that has a spoiler, but the Saris Bones that you referenced is not the correct one. Instead you would want the Hollywood Racks Over the Top part # HRF2 as it has been confirmed to fit you vehicle. I attached a review video for you to check out as well. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Swagman Easy-Out...

  • Options for Carrying Two Bikes On 2013 Honda CRV
  • If you're set on getting a trunk mount rack I recommend the Saris Bones, part # SA805BL. It's a simple design that's easier to get on the vehicle than most trunk mount racks. Fo ryour 2013 Honda CR-V you'll also need to use the Hatch Huggers, part # SA3035 on the lower hooks. With that being said a roof or hitch mount may be your best bet to carry your bikes. Both options eliminate the contact with the vehicle and give you more options of carriers to choose from. A hitch mounted...

  • Why are the Hatch Huggers Required for the Saris Bike Porter 2 Bike Rack on a 2016 Hyundai Veloster
  • The Hatch Huggers for Saris Trunk Mount Bike Racks part # SA3035 are required when using the Saris Bike Porter 2 Bike Rack part SA312B on your 2016 Hyundai Veloster because it has a glass hinge line and the hooks included with the Porter 2 could potentially cause damage to the glass. The Hatch Huggers are made of foam so you will not need to worry about damage to your glass hinge. I have attached a review video of the Hatch Huggers to give you a better ideal of how they work.

  • Does Saris Bones Trunk Rack # SA805BL Fit 2016 Honda CR-V
  • Yes, the Saris Bones 2 part # SA805BL is a confirmed fit for your 2016 Honda CR-V. You will have to use the part # SA3035 on the lower hooks inside the trunk. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Kuat Bike Frame Adapter Bar # UB01 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. I attached a review video for this product also. This will allow the bikes to be...

  • Can the Saris Bones 3 Bike Carrier Part # SA801R Handle Highway Speeds
  • Yes, the Saris Bones 3 Bike Carrier part # SA801R which is a fit for your 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon will be plenty fine traveling at highway speeds of 70 mph but I obviously cannot recommend you go over the posted speed limit. The bike rack's position on the vehicle will be in a way that does not really catch much wind resistance so speed should not be too much of a concern. Just remember to use the Hatch Huggers part # SA3035 on the two side straps.

  • Bike Rack to Fit 2016 Honda CR-V
  • Trunk mount bike racks are not considered to fit on a 2016 Honda CR-V by most bike rack manufacturers because of the automatic rear windshield wiper. Your rear wiper will turn on automatically when the front wipers are on and the car is put into reverse. Even if the rear windshield wiper is turned off. This can be an issue if you have a back rack mounted to your car. I would check with Honda to see if there is a way to turn this feature off, or how to best avoid the situation. With...

  • Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Options for a 2003 Volkswagen Beetle
  • We have trunk-mounted bike racks which will work with a 2003 Beetle, so long as it is not a convertible. The straps should be positioned according to the manufacturer, which may have specific directions for this vehicle. For example, the Saris Bones # SA805BL requires the use of Hatch Huggers for Saris Trunk Mount Bike Racks # SA3035 to replace the top hooks when used with an '03 Beetle. The Yakima HangOut # Y02637 is in a similar boat, as it requires the use of Glass Hatch Hook Adapter...

  • Trunk Bike Rack Recommendation for 2011 Honda CR-V
  • I spoke with my contact at Saris and he recommends going with the Sentinel 2 Bike Carrier, # SA1051, with Hatch Huggers, # SA3035, for your 2011 Honda CR-V. Although the Saris Bones 2 rack may fit on your CR-V, the reason it is not recommended for use on your vehicle is due the design. The two separate rubber feet, compared to the padded bar mounting style, put too much pressure on the bumper cover and could cause damage to your vehicle.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 2016 Hyundai Sonata to Carry 2 Bikes
  • We do carry a couple of trunk mount bike racks that fit your 2016 Hyundai Sonata. The Saris Sentinel # SA1051 fits as long as you add Hatch Huggers # SA3035. Rather than a trunk mount bike rack, I recommend a trailer hitch and a hitch mount bike rack. If you do not already have a trailer hitch on your Sonata, I recommend the Draw-Tite Class I Sport Frame Receiver Hitch # 24965. This Class I hitch will provide a 1-1/4 inch receiver that will work great with Class I compatible bike...

  • Are Bike Adapter Bars Needed for Womens and Kids Bikes on the Yakima HalfBack Bike Rack
  • With any 2-arm bike rack, including the HalfBack # Y02635, there is always the possibility that you would need to use a bike adapter bar, such as # 64005. There are just so many different kinds of bikes out there that it is very difficult to say for sure either way. Bike racks with the arms spaced close together are less likely to need an adapter bar though. On the HalfBack the arms are 12 inches apart, outside to outside. If there is enough free space on the underside of the top frame...

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack that is Easy to Load for a 2012 Nissan Versa Hatchback
  • It will be easiest to mount your 2 bikes on a trunk mount bike rack that holds 3 bikes because there is more space. But as far as having to lift up the bikes to load them I would not say that any one trunk mount option is going to be easier than the others. This is because the arms on all of them will be at approximately the same height once mounted on your 2012 Nissan Versa hatchback. I recommend the Saris Bones bike rack, part # SA801BL, because it's light weight, durable, and holds...

  • Will the Saris Bones 3-Bike Rack Fit a 2017 Mazda 3 Hatchback with Spoiler
  • Yes, the Saris Bones bike rack # SA801BL will fit your 2017 Mazda 3 hatchback with the spoiler but you will need to add and use Hatch Huggers # SA3035 in place of the side straps. Also the use of the Hatch Huggers reduces the bike rack capacity to 2 bikes. What I recommend for 3 bikes is the Yakima HalfBack # Y02635. I have included a link to a video review of this rack for you. It costs a little more but in my opinion it is a better rack compared to the Bones.

  • Comparing Installation of Saris Bones 3 To Yakima and Thule Trunk Mounted Rack on 2008 Lexus IS 250
  • I can help answer the questions you have about the Saris Bones 3 # SA801BL. You are correct that the plastic ratcheting cradles will make attaching the bike to the rack easier than the rubber straps. Typically the rubber will stretch easier in warmer climates and loosen up after repeated use. You are also correct that because they are plastic they have a higher chance of breaking especially in colder weather conditions. We haven't heard of any cases of the buckle breaking or coming...

They stated that the fit of the upper hooks on some vehicles can be more difficult to use than others. In order to help you with installation/removal and to keep you from fighting with the hooks, they recommend that you swap them out for the Hatch Huggers for Saris Trunk Mount Bike Racks part # SA3035.

  • Why Are Hatch Huggers Needed for Saris Bones on Certain Vehicles
  • The Hatch Huggers # SA3035 are needed to replace both the top and side hooks of the Saris Bones # SA805BL on your Toyota Prius. They are needed at the top to protect the glass on your Prius that's above the hatch. Then for the side attachments there's simply not a lot of room on your vehicle for the standard hooks to fit so the Hatch Huggers are needed to provide an alternative connection point. I reached out to my contact at Saris regarding the 2-bike limit and he said that this has...

  • The Hatch Huggers for Saris Trunk Mount Bike Racks part # SA3035 that you referenced are an alternative for the metal coated hooks that are included with most Saris trunk mount bike racks. They are used when the hooks would be attached to a glass or plastic surface to prevent damaged. The problem you have with your 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA-250 is that the straps would create too much downward pressure on the spoiler which would in turn cause damage. Therefore, the Hatch Huggers nor will any...
