Video Transcript for Saris Trunk Mounted Bike Racks Cable and Loop Lock Review

Adam: What's going on, everybody. Adam here with etrailer. Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Saris cable lock wet for your trunk-mounted bike racks. If you use a trunk-mounted bike rack to get your bikes to and fro, whether it's the Saris Bones or any other of the bike racks we carry here at etrailer, it's probably best to get a cable lock. One, just because it's right on the back, they can go ahead and take your bike off real quickly. But also it is pretty easy for them to come up here with some scissors and grab this and take the whole entire bike rack with them.So, that's why I recommend getting the Saris Cable Lock Kit.

It's going to lock your bikes to your rack and lock your rack to your vehicle so you can leave it wherever you want and you don't really have to worry about it running off. Putting locks on all of your accessories is definitely something I recommend just because people have sticky fingers. You don't want them to walk away with it, and that's going to leave you high and dry without a bike or without a rack, so you can't go riding.So, let's go over the whole entire installation process. It's super, super simple just to keep all your stuff safe. First thing we want to do before we put on our bikes is, install our little keeper here.

So, go ahead and just crack open your trunk, put that in there in a nice little spot, and then we can close it. Now, since that's done, we can go ahead and get our bike.Now what we can do is take the smaller end of our cable, go through this little loop, and then we want to go around the bike rack itself, and then around every single bike that we have, if you have multiple. We're going to loop it back through, try to find a good spot to where it's going to be not dragging or anything like that. Once we get that done, you can go ahead and install our lock. All you got to do is just push it on there, locks automatically, and pick our little pad here to cover it up and we are ready to go.One thing I really like about the lock is that we have a little rubber cap, so the rubber cap is just going to keep all that moisture out of there, all the dirt and stuff, so it's not going to rust away over time.

Another thing that's nice, you get two keys. You can put one on your key fob and another one somewhere else. If you lose one, you've got another one, so that's always a plus. The cable itself is going to be about eight foot long, so it's going to be plenty to get it wrapped around, however you want, even if you have all three bikes on here.Also, it is a nice coated vinyl cable, which I like, just because it's not going to maybe start fraying over time. Usually with those bare cables it kind of cut your hands a little bit.

Not something that I like, but this is nice and smooth, so you don't have to worry about that. And it's 10 millimeters thick, so it's extra sturdy, so if someone's got this pair of scissors or something like that, they are not going to be able to get through it. Well everyone, that's just about it for our look at these Saris cable lock set for your trunk-mounted bike racks.

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 2017 BMW X3 Without Hitch
    There are a lot of great options for a bike mount for your 2017 BMW X3 that don't require the use of a trailer hitch. I recommend the Saris Bones 2 Bike Rack # SA805BL. This rear-mounted bike rack installs easily onto the rear cargo area of your vehicle and can hold up to two bikes. It features six ratcheting straps to keep the bike rack secure during transport and its padded hooks keep your vehicle's finish free from damage. Check out the video linked below for more details.

  • Best Trunk Rack and Lock for 2016 Mazda CX-5
    I recommend the Saris Bones Rack, part # SA805BL. It can carry two bikes and is very easy to install. Another plus is its 10-pound frame, making it much easier for you to handle than most other trunk racks. Yet another benefit of choosing this rack is the Anti-Sway straps; with six straps to the vehicle and two additional straps for the frame, there is very little sway during travel. I've linked a review video for this rack. For additional protection, I also recommend the Saris Protect-O-Pads,...

  • Recommended Trunk-Mounted Bike Rack for 2008 Audi A4 Cabriolet-Convertible
    The bike rack you were looking at is inactive and no longer available, but luckily there are some other trunk bike racks that fit your 2008 Audi A4 convertible. I recommend looking at the Saris Guardian 2 Bike Rack # SAR93FR which can also be found in a 3-bike version # SAR43FR. Saris does state that you should use Hatch Huggers # SA3035 on your vehicle to replace the lower hooks that come with the Saris Guardian bike racks; this way you will not risk damaging the bottom of your trunk with...

  • What Non-Hitch Mount Bike Rack Will Work with My Electra Townie Step-Thru on My 2021 BMW 3 Series
    If you are looking for a non-hitch mount option to transport your Electra Townie step-thru on your 2021 BMW 3 Series, we do have some options depending on if you have a sedan, wagon, or convertible. According to my research on your Electra Townie, they have a weight of 32 pounds. Depending on the model of Electra Townie you have, I recommend consulting your owner's manual to confirm the weight in order to make sure it falls within the range of the bike rack's maximum weight capacity.

  • Adapter for Womens Bike and Lock for Saris Bones 2-Bike Rack
    For a women's, child's or alternative frame bike there is an adapter needed for the Saris Bones 2-Bike Rack # SA805BL. What you will need is a bike frame adapter bar to give those bikes a vertical mounting point and I recommend the Hollywood Racks Bike Frame Adapter Bar # HRBA-PRO because it adjusts from 15-13/64" to 28-13/16" long which is longer than most bars. Then for locks, you can lock your bikes and rack to your vehicle with the 8' Cable Lock and lock Loop for Saris Trunk...

  • Is There a Lock for the Saris Bones EX 2 Bike Rack
    Yes, we do offer locks for the Saris Bones EX 2 Bike Rack part # SAR83FR. The 8' Cable Lock and lock Loop for Saris Trunk Mounted Bike Racks part # SAR52FR is a two in one. It locks the bikes to the rack and then the rack to the vehicle. The rack to vehicle lock is just a loop that closes in the hatch and prevents the rack from being removed even with the straps off. The bike to rack lock is a more traditional steel cable with metal lock core.
