The Kuat Transfer 2 with integrated bike and hitch system is, by far, the best bike rack system I have ever purchased. It's easy to install and highly secure so we didn't worry about leaving our bikes on the rack overnight during a recent trip. The lock system is clever and easy to operate, also very cool design. Etrailer offered the lowest price and excellent customer service as I called with a few questions. highly recommend! 545397

This product, which is both a hitch lock and a bike lock for the Kuat Trannsfer 2 is excellent. The hitch lock mates to the OEM Kuat hitch pin, and the bike locks are a very clever design which allow you to have them permamently a part of the rack, hidden under the tube frame when not needed. The folks at ETrailer did a very good job of keeping me informed of the order status. These Kuat products are in early production and hard to obtain. ETrailer kept me up to date. 228801

Lock for hitch pin is like most all of them, very loose fitting and rattles on the receiver (annoying) prior to my creative use of some padding. The integrated bike locks are pretty useless. The locks stick out from the hook arm instead of being seated fully inside and being less obvious to a passerby. The cable is far too short to effectively lock the bike with. Couldn't fit around my frame(s) in any way. I got it around just the fork alright and with a lot of straining got it to fit around the front tire and fork for whatever security it's probably capable of. Fumbling with your key and the locking mechanism while holding the cable inside is just annoying. You will not avoid being a nice 6-8' cable to really secure bikes well. My 7' cable with 2 paddocks works well to secure both tires and frames of 2 bikes to the rack and the rack to the receiver. The locking hitch pin is some added security, but janky. The integrated bike locks are a waste of engineering thought and not worth any money. I was disappointed with shipping. Although I found this product on Etrailer.com after several other vendors indicated being out of stock with it. I ordered the lock kit only from etrailer at the same time that I ordered my rack from another vendor (offering a lower price than etrailer), both with standard shipping. The lock kit arrived a week after the rack. I was glad that I didn't order the rack from etrailer. On a good note, etrailer customer service appears to genuinely care in at least some way. I continually received emails regarding ordering and shipping status. Then received an invitation to take this survey, indicating that they want to learn how to improve with each customers input. So, maybe this is a good test for etrailer. The ball is in your court, watcha' gonna do? 239217

Pro: These locks are pretty easy to install and use. Con: The cable locks only attach to the rack with a T25 bolt which is a fairly common head. Even the multi tool I carry with me while biking has a T25 tool. Additionally, the cable itself would be easy for any truly determined thief to get through quickly. These locks will keep your bike safe from opportunistic crime but I won't be leaving my bikes outside overnight if I have the option. That policy applies to just about any bike lock on the market. Poke around on Youtube and you'll see plenty of examples why nothing is 100% secure. 898489

Very convenient and provides and added feeling of security. Love how they slide into the tire anchors. 896151



- PTSCLK12
by:

These work as expected. The only issue I have had is that in the down position, one of the locks comes out of the rack when driving down the road and ends up hanging down towards the ground by the cable. It is not long enough to touch the ground so no harm done, but does not look great. For some reason one just does not stay inserted in the the rack arm as it should. 894214



- PTSCLK12
by:

The bike locks are terrible. The 'mechanism' that attaches the lock/bike to the rack frame is a bit of a pain to install/use, and if you leave the lock installed without attaching to a bike, it flops out and drags on the ground, from first hand experience. The remaining lock that works now never sees the light of day, as it's easier to use our regular bike locks. The rack is great, the rack lock is fine; it's easy to install and remove and rotate between the up and down positions. 891857

We could not be happier with our Kuat bike platform rack and the locks that we bought to go with it. Combined, it has to be the easiest and safest way to transport our bikes I have ever seen. The quality is excellent and the ease of use of both the bike rack and the locks is perfect. I give these products our highest recommendation! 850972

I purchased the Kuat Bike Lock kit for my Kuat 1 bike carrier to help lock it down for short periods. The folks at etrailer.com sent it very quickly. Installation was a breeze. the lock kit tucks into each bikes carrier. The thickness of the cable is not the best so i would not leave a bike on their overnight in a hotel parking lot , but fine for quick times away from the car. 822216

I am very pleased with my purchase. I am also very pleased with the personal attention that my order received. I asked if breaking up my order would allow me to get my rack sooner and received a personal email and a personal email followup and a direct number to call to renew my order. I am happy with my Kuatt product and etrailer.com 820566

This lock kit works really well for my Kuat Transfer 2 bike rack. The kit is easy to install and it offers just enough deterrence that a potential thief will move on to something easier. As always, thanks to etrailer.co! 815992

  • Recommended Hitch Lock For Kuat Transfer Bike Rack
    For your Kuat Transfer bike rack, I recommend the Cable Locks and Hitch Lock for Kuat Transfer 2 Bike Rack # PTSCLK12 or the Cable Locks and Hitch Lock for Kuat Transfer 3 Bike Rack # PTSCLK13. This will give you the bike locks and the lock compatible with your bike rack's current threaded hitch pin.

  • Lock Kit Recommendation for a Kuat Transfer Bike Rack
    Yes, the lock kit part # PTSCLK12 will replace the end caps of your Kuat Transfer part # TS02G and will give it a cable lock that will slide into the tube of the rack when not in use. I attached a picture of the lock kit for you to check out as well.

  • Does Kuat Transfer Hitch Lock and Cable Lock Kit # PTSCLK12 Come with Same Kuat Lock Core HLT-014
    Yes, the lock core that comes with the Cable Locks and Hitch Lock for Kuat Transfer 2 Bike Rack # PTSCLK12 is the same lock core that comes with the # HLT. If you have a Kuat Transfer # TS02G this kit will allow you to lock the rack to the hitch and the bikes to the rack.

  • How is Kuat Cable Lock Secured in Place on Transfer 2-Bike Rack
    As you referenced in your question, the cable locks from the Kuat Lock Kit # PTSCLK12 are designed to install inside the wheel hook arms on the Kuat Transfer 2-Bike Rack # TS02G. The black cap that you are referring to that actually attaches to the top of the arm will be secured in place by a security bolt with a unique center post. This means that the bolt can only be tightened or removed using the specialized security tool included with the kit. Unless a nearby thief has this same exact...

    The Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch Receiver # 24866 referenced in your question is confirmed to fit your 2013 VW Jetta SportWagen TDI diesel model. I actually called my contact at Draw-Tite to verify this. This Class I hitch is custom fit for the vehicle, which means it will use existing holes in its frame for a no-drill installation. It will provide you with a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening and a tongue weight capacity of 200 pounds. I have attached an installation video on your 2013...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch For 2016 Honda Pilot
    The trailer hitch I recommend for your 2016 Pilot is the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch, part # 75225. This is a Class lll hitch and it has a 2-inch receiver opening. When you are considering any accessory to put in the hitch you will want to be aware of the clearance at the back of the vehicle. I have attached a link to an installation video for this hitch on a 2016 Pilot you can check out. The distance form the center of the hitch pin hole to the back of the rear bumper is 3-inches....

  • Hitch or Trunk Mount Bike Rack for 2019 Honda CR-V
    In general I always recommend a hitch-mounted bike rack over a trunk-mount option but for your 2019 Honda CR-V the reasoning is even stronger. This is because the 2019 CR-V comes equipped from the factory with a feature that automatically activates the rear wipers when the vehicle is put in reverse during inclement weather. This essentially means that a trunk-mounted rack couldn't be mounted to the vehicle when it's raining unless you knew for certain you would only need to drive forward....

  • Bike Rack for a Specialized Low Entry Roll Bike on a 2014 Mazda CX-5
    For your Specialized Low Entry Roll bike, your best option will be a wheel mounted carrier, as this avoids having to work with the frame entirely. If you're looking to carry just your bike, and don't plan on ever carrying any others, Thule's T1 Platform, part # TH9041 will be a great option for you. This is a one bike, wheel mount platform rack that includes integrated bike and rack locks, and has a wide range of compatibility with hitch types. If you do want to carry two bikes,...

  • Best Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack for a 2020 Tesla 3
    In order to use a hitch mounted bike rack on a 2020 Tesla 3 you'll need a trailer hitch to start and for this I recommend the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver part # C45FR which is a great bolt-on option. The Curt hitch has a hidden design so it won't stand out on the back of the vehicle and it has the larger receiver tube opening so you will have a much wider variety of hitch mounted accessories to choose from such as bike racks or cargo carriers. For a bike rack, I really like the Kuat...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for Backup Camera Use on a 2019 Toyota Highlander
    The best folding bike rack that will obstruct the backup camera on your 2019 Toyota Highlander the least is the Kuat Transfer. This comes in Gray # TS02G and Black # TS02B and has been test fit on a 2016 Highlander (see attached video) which is the same generation as your 2019. The biggest difference between this and a Thule hanging rack is that it is a wheel mount bike rack. The great thing about wheel mount bike racks is that it can accommodate any bike frame style as long as you don't...

  • Locking Hitch Pin for Kuat Transfer 2 Bike Rack
    There is a solution for you, but the HitchMate Threaded Lock # HE6001 will not work with your Kuat Transfer 2 # TS02G. You'd want the Cable Locks and Hitch Lock for Kuat Transfer 2 Bike Rack # PTSCLK12, which includes a hitch lock that attaches to your existing threaded hitch pin. The kit also includes a pair of cable locks to secure your bikes. I've added a link to a video review of this lock set for you to check out as well.

  • Kuat Transfer 1 Compared To Thule T1 Bike Rack On 2018 Mazda CX-5 Carrying Carbon Fiber Bikes
    Both racks are a great choice and will fit the hitch but the Kuat Transfer part # TS01B is your best option because it weighs about 3 lbs less than the Thule T1 1-Bike Platform Rack part # TH9041 which isn't much but makes it a bit easier to take in and out of the hitch. The rack weighs about 26 lbs. It also tilts-away with the bike still attached for easy rear cargo access compared to the Thule that does not tilt-away at all. The Kuat does not come with the locks you will need part # PTSCLK12...

  • Troubleshooting Kuat Transfer Bike Rack that Moves in the Hitch
    If you check out the test course video I attached for the Kuat Transfer part # TS02G that shows how stable it is on the road you'll see that the rack is supposed to be pretty stable once the hitch pin is tightened. What is most likely going on is that the hitch pin may not be tight enough to remove all of the movement. The easiest way to fix this is to tighten the hitch pin while you move the rack around in the hitch. This is the easiest way to get all of the movement out of the...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack for 2020 Mazda 3 Hatchback
    Absolutely! Starting with the trailer hitch for your 2020 Mazda 3 Hatchback, the Draw-Tite Class I Sport Frame # 24984 will work perfectly. This will line right up to existing holes in the frame rails for a simple bolt-on (no-drill) installation and features a 200 pound tongue weight capacity. I have attached the written installation manual below that you can look through as well. All the necessary hardware is included. Then for a Class I rated bike rack I highly recommend the...

It will use existing holes in the vehicle's frame for a no-drill installation and will work perfectly for hitch-mounted accessories like a bike rack or cargo carrier.

    You've narrowed it down to two extremely good racks. You are right about how the distance of the bikes on the rack interacts with their stability.

  • Comparing the Kuat Transfer 2 and RockyMounts MonoRail 2 Bike Racks
    I am personally a big fan of the Kuat Transfer 2 Bike Platform Rack part # TS02B for a few reasons. The first being that the center portion is open so you can walk right up inside of the rack and place your bikes in the cradles whereas for the RockyMounts MonoRail 2 Bike Platform Rack part # RKY10003 you will have to stop at some point and lift the bike up and over the center section. The other reason I prefer the Kuat Transfer 2 is because it just has a more aesthetically pleasing look...

    Because of the Subaru OEM hitch's shorter overall length and position near the internal mechanics of the car, there's only a few fits that work. Specifically, you're looking for racks that only have 1-1/2 inches from the end of their shank to the hitch pin hole. I went out to our warehouse and measured a Kuat Transfer's shank, part # TS02G and it does have a 1-1/2 inch distance from its shank to the center of the hitch pin hole, giving it a good chance of fitting the Subaru hitch correctly....

  • Recommended Bike Rack for Trek Verve 3 with Step-Through Frame for a 2004 Volvo S40
    Both the Swagman G10 # S64682 and the Swagman Chinook # S64683 are great bike racks that can be adjusted to hold kid's bikes so I don't think that the hook being able to come down far enough will be an issue. My only concern is that the 3rd point of contact will be lower so I am not sure how secure a bike with a low step-through frame will do. To ensure that your wife's bike will remain secure in the bike rack there are 2 options. You could either use an Adapter Bar # 64005 which...
