Kuat NV22G loaded on vehicle

The Kuat NV platform-style rack lets you transport 4 bikes of almost any size, shape, or frame style. A detachable 2-bike add-on lets you easily convert the rack to a 2-bike carrier. Ratcheting wheel hooks and sliding wheel straps hold your bikes with no frame contact. The rack tilts with bikes loaded for cargo area access and it folds up for storage. The aluminum rack has an integrated work stand for on-the-go repairs, it installs without tools, and it includes locks to secure your bikes to the rack and the rack to your vehicle.


Detachable 2-Bike Add-On

Kuat NV22G 2-bike add-on

The NV 2.0 includes a detachable 2-bike add-on that lets you convert the rack from a 4-bike rack to a 2-bike rack. Simply remove 4 hex head bolts with the included Allen key and slide the extension out of the base.


Note: The Trail Doc built-in bike repair stand is shipped installed on the base rack and must be removed to use on the add-on.


Adjustable Arms with Ratcheting Wheel Hooks

Kuat NV22G ratcheeting wheel hooks

The NV has ratcheting hooks that grab your bikes firmly by the front wheels - not the frames. These hooks allow you to rapidly load and unload your bikes, and they won't scratch or scuff your bike paint. Each hook adjusts in 2-mm increments to ensure a snug fit over your wheel, and it releases with the push of a button.


The wheel hooks are mounted on arms that pivot nearly 180 degrees from left to right. This makes it easier to load when compared with a rack that has the hooks mounted on a central post. To load simply set your bike in the wheel cradles, rotate the arms up over the wheels, and press the hooks down over the wheels until snug.


Kuat NV22G sliding wheel cradles with ratcheting straps

The front wheel cradles are extra-wide to accommodate fat bike wheels.


Sliding, Ratcheting Rear-Wheel Straps

Kuat NV22G sliding wheel cradles with ratcheting straps

The NV 2.0 has ratcheting rear-wheel straps that slide along the wheel trays to accommodate bikes of different lengths. A quick-release button on each strap buckle makes it easy to free the rear wheel to remove your bikes. 2 extender straps are included for use with 2 fat bikes. Additional extender straps (APBK - sold separately) are available if you have more than 2 fat bikes.


Folding and Tilting Design

Kuat NV22G hitch tightening adjustment knob

The NV has a foot lever on the base that is easily accessible even with your bikes loaded. No more crawling through bikes or squeezing between the rack and the vehicle to hit the tilt release lever.


Kuat NV22G tilting and folding design

The rack tilts down - with or without bikes loaded - so you can access your vehicle's rear cargo area.


Kuat NV22G tilting and folding design

When the rack is unloaded you can fold it up for storage. This makes it easier to park in small lots at the trail head or in cramped parking garages, and it keeps the rack out of the way of other vehicles and riders.


Built-In Repair Stand

Kuat NV22G built-in repair stand

The Trail Doc is a handy, built-in bike repair and maintenance stand that attaches to the front of the rack. It grabs your bike by the seat post or top tube and lets you position your bike as needed for adjustments and on-the-go repairs. It attaches to the rack with 4 hex-head bolts. It can be locked into place to prevent theft and includes a cap for the housing if you prefer to use the rack without it.


Kuat NV22G adjustable built-in stand

You can reposition your bike on the Trail Doc. Easy-to-use pressure clamps let you raise or lower the stand, rotate it on its base, and rotate the clamp arm. And the TPE padding on the clamp protects your bike's frame and finish.


Tool-Free Installation with Anti-Rattle Device

Kuat NV22G anti rattle device

The knob at the front of the shank lets you quickly and easily install the rack. Just slide the shank into your hitch and turn the knob until snug. The knob deploys an anti-rattle wedge inside the shank to help take play out of the hitch connection. The locking hitch pin has an Allen tool on the end that further tightens the hand knob if you are still experiencing rattle after hand-tightening.


Complete Security for Bikes and Rack

Kuat NV22G integrated cable lock

The NV 2.0 includes integrated cable locks that lets you secure your bikes to the rack. A 1/4" thick, braided steel cable extends from each wheel tray, threads through your bike's frame, and locks back onto itself.


A locking hitch pin is also included to secure the rack to your vehicle. It's keyed alike with the cable lock so you only need 1 key for the rack.

Video Transcript for Kuat NV 2.0 4-Bike Platform Rack Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Kuat NV 2.0 Platform Style 4 Bike Rack for 2 inch hitches, part number NV22G-NA22G. This premium style 4 bike rack from Kuat holds all 4 of our bikes with no frame contact. Here at the front we have a rubberized adjustable wheel hook that puts down pressure on our front tire into the front wheel cradle. It'll work with tire sizes from 20 inches all the way up to 29 inches. Here at the back we have a wheel strap that is adjustable along the platform, goes over our wheel and secures our rear wheel in place. It's versatile design is going to fit most bikes regardless of the size, weight, frame design, suspension or brake style. Another great feature about this bike rack is it has the ability to tilt away with all bikes loaded so we can gain easy access to our rear hatch.

When doing so it's not a bad idea to get an extra set of hands because it can get a little heavy. I have one guy at the bike and one guy working the lever in the center and we'll just drop it down. Then as you can see, we've got plenty of room to remove any cargo, gear, groceries, anything we might have with us on our trip. With all the bikes loaded up, it offers us great spacing between the bikes. It's about 11 inches from center on center of each of the cradles. I've gone ahead and removed some bikes so we can go over some additional features.

The wheel cradles are going to accommodate road bike tires, standard mountain bike tires and even phat tires up to 4 and half inches wide. Though if you wish to carry a phat tire bike, you'll need to pick up the Kuat Phat Tire adapter kit, part number ABPK. The front wheel hook will also accommodate the same tire widths. The integrated cable locks are going to add some security to our bike rack. There's one for each bike.

The hitch locks and the cable locks use the same key. The rear wheel cradle is adjustable along the platform. It'll accommodate a maximum bike wheel base spacing of 48 inches. If you wish to only carry 2 bikes on your adventure, or even just to save space, you could remove the 2 bike add on with the included hardware. When not in use, the whole bike rack folds flat and we can fold it up against our vehicle for compact storage. This will be ideal for parallel parking or pulling in your garage.

With the bike rack folded up, one last great feature is the built in bike repair stand. It lets you perform on the go maintenance to your bike with ease. It's adjustable height wise for optimal bike positioning. It'll fit a tube diameter from three-quarters to 2 and half inches. When not in use, the whole thing stows within the rack. The whole bike rack is made out of an aluminium construction with a gun metal gray powder coat finish. It has a weight capacity of 60 pounds per bike and has a limited lifetime warranty. Now as you can see, it's a sizable bike rack. To give me an idea if it's going to work out for you, I'll give you some measurements. The distance from the side of the hitch pin hole to the farthest part of the rack when folded up is about 18 and a half inches. The distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the closest part of the rack when folded up is 7 inches. Now that we've gone over the features, I'll go ahead and show you how to get it installed. Now it does weigh about 79 pounds, so if you need to get an extra set of hands to load it up on your receiver, go ahead and do so. Let's go ahead and set it in place and then we'll line up our pinholes. Then we'll take our included pin and lock, we'll put that through and clip the lock on the other side. Then we can make our way to the back and we're just going to tighten that up. What that's going to do is it's going to put pressure on the inside of the receiver to make a nice tight fit for our 4 bike rack. It does help if you pick up on the bike rack a little bit while you're tightening it up just to relieve any of that play that you might have. Once you got it tight, give it a shake, cause you can see most of that play is gone. Now in preparation for loading up our bikes, we'll need to lower it down into the platform position. We can do that by this lever here. You can use the palm of your hand or your foot, whatever is easiest. We'll push in, then lower it down until it snaps into position. Just like that. Now we can raise up our wheel hook. We'll want to bring it out, like so, and all the way out of the way. We'll also want to be sure to undo our rear wheel strap. You can press into the little gray button here and just guide it out. Now when loading up your bikes, it's always important that you load up the heaviest bike first. We'll just set the front wheel in the front wheel cradle there and then bring up the back and set it in place. Now with it in position, let's go ahead and raise up our wheel hook. This is going to end up right in front of our fork or our brakes, whatever comes first. We'll get it up about an inch away and then we'll bring it down. Once it makes contact, give it a good push and we've got it. For securing our rear wheel strap, we can adjust it along the platform to our center with the tire, go between our spokes, through the ratchet mechanism, and then pull it nice and tight. I've gone ahead and loaded up 3 more bikes. The only thing left to do is to run our cable locks. We'll just pull it out from the platform here, we'll come up, go around the rear portion of our frame, and then back through itself. Now with all the bikes locked up and secured, let's go ahead and take it out on our test course and see how it performs. Here on our test course, let's first go into our slalom. This is going to show side to side action, such as going around corners or evasive maneuvering. Then onto our alternating speed bumps. This is going to show a twisting action, such as going over potholes or uneven pavement. Then finally onto our solid speed bumps. This is going to show an up and down action, such as pulling in and out of a driveway or out of a parking lot. That's going to complete our look at the Kuat NV 2.0 Platform Style 4 Bike Rack for 2 inch hitches, part number NV22G-NA22G.

We love this bike rack!! Sure it is more expensive than some of the other racks, but it is worth the extra $!! etrailer offered this at a great price and delivered it quickly. 509146

It's very easy to assemble and works great the two times I've used it, over washboard roads and potholes. I ended up buying this after going back and for over a few other brands in the upper end price range. I settled on this one because my wife would be using it without me around so usability was paramount. It's easy to drop down, load everything from cruisers to kids bikes and it's stable. Win. Win. Yep, it's a few extra bucks, but the engineering, fit and finish is an upgrade to my lexus! 547550

Product is great but etrailer.com is terrible. I had previously purchased from etrailer.com and had good experiences. However, this time, my rack showed up chipped and missing parts. I called etrailer.com customer support and they said they couldn't do anything to help me and gave me Kuat's number. I called Kuat and they said the seller should have been able to handle this issue and they referred me to a local retailer that they said was more responsive and helpful than etrailer.com. I will buy a Kuat again but will never, ever buy from etrailer again and would NOT recommend them to anyone. See pics below of how rack showed up with chipped powder coating and parts missing so the 2 position extension could only be used for one bike. 399401

I needed this rack in a hurry before my trip. I called Etrailer and they had it in stock and shipped it out that day. It got here two days later just in time for my trip. What amazing customer service these guys have. The rack itself is insanely nice. It's refreshing to see a company like Kuat build something they very clearly care about. I am about to put it through it's paces on a long trip, but so far, amazing product. I put it on my 2016 Mercedes Benz Sprinter. FWIW you can open both doors with the rack installed and no bike on the first slot in the rack. If you want to run 4 bikes and open the doors you will probably need a hitch extender. I guess 8". 274508

Very pleased with the quality and construction of the Kuat bike rack. Had a little issue when installing the add on rack. One of the receiver nuts was miss aligned with the bolt but was able to get it to work. Rack is very sturdy and easy to add and remove bikes. A little on the pricey side but you get what you pay for and piece of mind knowing your bikes are safe and secure is worth the extra expense. I would definitely recommend this bike rack. 405074

Worth every penny--couldn't be happier with my decision to spend a bit more for this quality platform hitch bike rack. Assembly was a little awkward at times and a 2nd pair of hands was nice, but really not that bad. The Gunmetal Gray color choice was also a nice option that looks sharp with my charcoal MDX. I really like having the ability to easily convert to a 2 bike rack from the 4 bike rack and back. Great quality product and Karen was most helpful in assisting me with my order choice at etrailer! 580439

Fast shipment of the bike rack from etrailer.com Both boxes arrived safely and all the parts were present. This bike rack is the best I have seen for a hitch mount. Kuat has designed a superior product. I shopped and compared this to the Yakima and Thule racks of similar designs. This Kuat NV 2.0 beats them all. It fits for adjustable wheel bases with the sliding back wheel strap and adjustable front wheel slot. It also locks in wheels from 20" up to 29". The 20" requires an additional adapter sold separately. The finish and the build quality are top grade and I expect this bike rack to last many years. I am switching from a Thule 4-bike hitch rack after about 10 years with the Thule. 552645

Worth every penny. I also have a Saris Freedom 4, and after years of frustration shoehorning 4 bikes onto it I finally gave in and got the NV. It was almost fun to put all 4 bikes on and took a fraction of the time compared to the Saris. The best part is that there is enough space between each bike that they don't rub against each other. The bare aluminum spot on my son's bike from my pedal is a constant reminder that I should have ordered the NV in the first place. As a 4 bike rack, it's a bit large and also on the heavy side, but can still be moved around by one person. 294467

I just received my Kuat NV22G-NA22G E-trailer was phenomenal, Fast delivered it in about three days . The bike rack is incredibly well built (Super Strong). it took a little bit of time to assemble but nothing complicated. This is ,in my opinion, a very expensive rack but it is probably hands-down the best hitch mount bike rack on the market. I will say that I have only assembled the initial two bike rack and have not yet attached the additional two bike rack to make it a four bike rack. But it will definitely be on the heavy side when the four bike unit is complete. However it is tremendously sturdy and well-built . 289449

Shipping was v. quick. Rack takes a little while to assemble since it is heavy and is shipped in several pieces, but the rack feels well made and is extremely easy to use once it is assembled and in place on the hitch. 268186

After one year, I am very impressed. The rack is definitely extremely easy to use - takes no time to load/unload bikes and they are held securely in transit. I highly recommend!

Review from a similar Kuat NV 2.0 in Hitch Bike Racks


We've had every imaginable kind of bike rack for our family over the years. Roof mounted, hitch mounted, hatch mounted, spare tire mounted, etc. This is one of the best designed and executed rear receiver mount racks. It fits on our pick up truck and has a knob that lets you take up the clearance in the receiver so the rack doesn't rock as the truck bounces. This reduces the swaying that can be imparted to the rear of the vehicle and eliminates the noise caused by any tolerance in the fit. The locks for each bike are too short to grab the front wheel, but let you get the bike frame and the rear wheel. the hitch includes a locking hitch pin for the receiver. Very nicely made. The "pivot" is great and better made than any of our previous pivoting bike racks. Nicely over-engineered. 529240

Review from a similar Kuat NV 2.0 in Hitch Bike Racks


Well, well, made! It is heavy and I'd certainly like to see it become lighter. Rear wheel tie down strap could use a slot on the back to slip the strap into while loading/unloading to keep it out of the way. Some other racks have this. I'd like to see the add-on bike clamp have a securing key to keep from having it stolen or having to remove to keep safe and be longer if possible. I truly think it is great though. 511064

Cant say enough about it. Been a year now and it still works and looks like new. Yes I take good care of my things but it has been a great product to have. Very well made.

Review from a similar Kuat NV 2.0 in Hitch Bike Racks


Kuat had to replace all my locks twice... if Kuat made their design so locks were not in line with muffler I think there would have been less issues with cable locks... also wish kuat could design a softer hitch for the front wheel to rest in so there is no chance of paint on the fork of bike getting scratched or damaged... always have to carry an old towel as a barrier 610167

Review from a similar Kuat NV 2.0 in Hitch Bike Racks


This thing is built like a tank. The ball bearing system to tighten the rack inside the hitch receiver works very well. The rack does not move. The packaging is impeccable with no shipping scratches. the rack goes together easily and tight. there are no gaps or misfit parts. There is no wiggle at all when moving the rack between the up, down, or suv access points. This is a well thought out design and worth the money. I have two Fuji Nevada 29ers 1.1. The wheels are 29, or 700, and they have regular width mountain bike tires. The bikes fit on the racks perfectly and nothing touches the bikes that is not supposed to. E-trailer got my business because they were the best price and they ship extremely fast. 584631

Review from a similar Kuat NV 2.0 in Hitch Bike Racks


The process has been very easy. From order to on time delivery to assembly. This rack arrived today, I set a half hour aside for assembly. You will need nothing for this easy job. The Allen wrench is included with the rack. Follow the directions and you'll be very happy. As you can see in the two photos, the bikes are on the rack with ease. I have not driven yet, but shook the bikes by hand and rocked them around pretty good. Very little movement, very solid. The rack is a bit more expensive than others, but with its good looks, the ease of operation, and solid construction, I couldn't be happier. Linc 378847

Rack arrived today. I will not lie, it is heavy and therefore cumbersome to assemble. Despite that, I was able to assemble and install it in just under one hour. I did this on my own, another person would have cut this time in half. The rack checks all the boxes of wants and needs. That same weight noted before makes it rock solid. The anti-rattle feature to tighten the hitch is wonderful. Handle/pedal to change from upright position to bike holding rack to tilt away from my Subaru 2010 Forester was incredibly simple and smooth. I was all set to buy the Thule T2 Pro XT 2 and a friend told me about this Kuat NV 2.0. I am so happy. I knew it was more expensive, but free shipping and price was discounted at checkout when I purchased it from etrailer.com. Great surprise. This rack is well thought out, has superb quality features, and I am convinced that I made the best choice. All things aside, it also really looks nice. 498287

One-year later and still just as satisfied and just as impressed. Need a bike rack, this is the one you need. I am particular and particularly impressed.

Product was out of stock. We got a call from etrailer to let us know how long it would be out of stock and if we wanted to wait or do something else. We decided to wait and glad we did. Product came in earlier than expected. Happy with the bike rack exactly as described. 201090

Best Bike Rack. I am very glad that I got to find what I needed; thanks to the product reviews on YouTube. It is not only strong, it also looks very nice. The bike is well secure and very easy to mount and dismount. To assemble the rack, just follow the instructions shown on youTube. It is that easy. etrailer.com was my best choice to buy. The service is outstanding. I highly recommend this product. Not only looks great, it also looks nice on any SUV. 416914

Clear and simple assembly instructions. Packaged very well to protect all painted surfaces. It’s a very well built and sturdy rack. I really like that each front tire tray is adjustable up or down. Kuat pulled out all the stops on this rack, Excellently done! I also like the integrated bike locks and the anti-sway feature, very cool! I believe this rack will allow my son and I to travel further safely and explore more on our mountain bikes and bring us closer together. 542508

I tried to pick the best bike hitch rack on the market and I think I succeeded with the Kuat NV 2.0. Took about 20 minutes to unbox and assemble, quite simple and included all the tools necessary. Rack is VERY stout but along with the stiffness goes a significant amount of weight. The most pleasant surprise was the significant savings that showed up in my cart when I went to purchase, did not show on the discounted price on the main product page. Bought my trailer hitch from them too because they had the lowest delivered price. etrailer will be my 1st "go-to" from now on, customer for life! 479474

Paired this rack with a Curt C11111 for my 2012 Infiniti M37 Sedan. Easy to assemble/install, custom fit and look. The rack makes it extremely easy to load either MTB or road bikes. My wife loves the fact she can load the bikes without my assistance! 171138

Review from a similar Kuat NV 2.0 in Hitch Bike Racks


Fantastic bike rack!! After getting fed up with loading my bike up repeatedly in the back of my 2003 GMC Sierra pickup (with a hard top cover) I decided to purchase this kuat rack. I wish I would’ve sooner. Assembly was easy and straight forward however I would use a magnetic parts bowl if I had it to do over. Kuat doesn’t included any extra nuts so I had to contact them to get another after I dropped and lost one (they were very polite and shipped one right away.) As far as function goes this rack is really easy to use. Just slide it into the receiver and put the lock pin it. Just like in the video you then tighten the knob at the back to secure the hitch so there is no movement. Load your bikes up and secure them and you’re ready to go. I did utilize the retractable cable locks after my ride when stopping to eat and they are very easy to use. No worries at all about a stolen bike. And the tilting feature is great too. It does allows you to access your truck bed with the tailgate down just as in the video. As an added bonus this rack fits perfect in my standard size truck bed even with the hard top cover closed (my truck is too long to fit in the garage with the rack folded up installed in the hitch.) Michael H. was outstanding providing schematic drawings with the dimensions so I would know this before my purchase (they’re on the Q&A page.) The free shipping was very fast so that made the purchase even better. I will definitely be a repeat customer as eTrailer is the one of the best companies out there with great customer service and timely communication. Great job!! 486543

Review from a similar Kuat NV 2.0 in Hitch Bike Racks


I did a lot of research on tray racks and had narrowed it down to Thule, 1up, and Kuat. Then I started looking at what other riders were using. I didn’t see any 1ups where I ride, but I did see a lot of Thules and Kuats. Thule owners are happy with their racks but Kuat owners are FANATICS! Nearly every Kuat owner was a “brand ambassador.” So far this rack had really lived up to the hype....I guess I am now a Kuat brand ambassador too! (Assembly tip: assemble upside down and use foam or pillows to prop up center piece as you align the arms.) 544574

eTrailer had a misunderstanding of their inventory and I needed this for a biking trip on Memorial Day. They made it right by paying for expedited shipping and received a hitch and this bike rack on Friday in time for the weekend. Installation was easy, just make sure (for this hitch and setup) that you have a 17/32" drill bit. We didn't have one so I picked up a 9/16" (18/32") and that did the job. The video that shows fishing the fish through the holes in the chassis and pulling the bolts and plates through really works as advertised, I was impressed. Mind you, this was all for the 2" hitch, but The bike rack itself is easy put bikes on and off, and comes with a locking mechanism which is handy. If I were going to be parked somewhere I doubted the security for more than just an hour or so, I might consider one more bike lock strung around the bike(s) just for ease of mine. The locking hitch pin is a nice piece of mind too. The ability for this rack to tilt both vertically to reduce your vehicle's profile as well as backwards even with the bike on (for easy access to the hatch), is extremely handy. Cannot recommend this enough! 257731

I have a great rack! (actually my wife does) I have 5 or 6 friends that use this rack and grew weary of throwing my bike on top of the Outback. Additionally my wife has become interested in venturing off on her own and cannot put a bike on top her outback. etrailer shipped promptly, and the product arrived in good shape, note: there were a few spots where the parts had jostled around in the box slightly and you could see some marring of the surface. This polished right out with a microfiber towel and mothers. There are a few minor nicks (I mean really minor) on the rack;but, they were there before being put in the factory packaging. Not enough to whine about just know the finish is great just not perfect. Speaking of the finish the color matches my Outback perfectly, it actually looks like an OEM Subaru thing. Fit is good using the Hidden/Drawtite hitch clearing the hatch while tilted back easily even with 800mm bars. The locking Hitch pin that comes with the rack is 1/2" diameter instead of the normal 5/8", fortunately the hitch mentioned above has a smaller 1/2" about 12mm aft of the 5/8" hole. The hole in the rack is 5/8" but do to the snugging system on the Küat the mismatch I'd of no consequence. Assembly is easy and someone with good mechanical aptitude should be able to do it in less than 10, an extra set of hands would be nice but aren't required. I built mine on an elevated bench and it was quick and super easy, admittedly I used power tools because I have them. I'm looking forward to the convenience of a tray. 440137

Comments

After a year I still love my Kuat. It has made a bunch of trips to Vermont from here in Connecticut without a problems or hiccups. I have had quite a few comments on it, folks thought it looked unique and very secure. I really appreciate the integrated locking cable, it gives me piece of mind that my bikes are safe. My only problem was with the locking pin for the work stand which broke shortly after I got it. The folks from Kuat quickly sent me a replacement though, the gentleman I talked to was very helpful. All in all, this rack is well worth the price in my opinion.

Have used it on a 2015 Audi Q5 with an aftermarket Curt 2" hitch. LOVE it! We were looking for the longest tongue that we could find so that when stored upright, it wouldn't hit the bumper. With the advice of the etrailer phone rep...we got 4 place model which is what we ended up with..(we got the add-on) Avid mountain bikers that love this setup. The model is very solid with 4 bikes! Also like how you can adjust the front wheel cradle so that the bars won't rub on other bars/seats. Heavy when you lower the rack "loaded" to open hatchback, but that's what you'll deal with when going with a setup that doesn't touch the frame which is what we want and need. Much nicer than the Thule/Yakima options that other friends have. A lot better looking too!! It does slightly block the tail lights so added some reflectors for those "distracted drivers" ;-) Highly recommend and feel price is worth it. 515474

Wow!!! What an upgrade from my Thule 4 bike hanging carrier! The Thule was fine for hauling the family's bikes around town but I needed a platform to safely transport my Tri bike to events. I couldn't be happier with Kuat and this NV 2.0 carrier. Amazing etrailer customer service with Cathy T and absolutely the best price! Super fast free shipping too. I ordered Wednesday afternoon and she arrived ahead of schedule on Saturday. (That's right, this rack is so sweet I gendered it.) Easy to follow instructions, sweet looks and a secure platform leaves me with absolutely ZERO buyers remorse. I began my search for a platform carrier at the cheap end of the scale. After a quick study I became convinced that Kuat was my best option. And etrailer made it possible for me to stretch my budget into a FIVE STAR Kuat rack! Special Thanks to Cathy T for helping with a billing issue that required a few calls! 377838

Assembly was not as difficult as I expected. After watching some videos, the instructions do make sense. I also used the box with some of the foam packing to support the frame because, as suggested, it easier to put together"upside down". Once it's together it seems very solid and well made. Installing on my 2017 Hyundai Tucson Eco was simple and easy to do. Putting the bike on the rack was even easier and will make impromptu bike rides no problem when I'm by myself. In the pictures the bike was on the outside rack because I was demonstrating it to my friend who thankfully assisted me with the hitch installation. 386032

I can't recommend this carrier enough. I had a less expensive hanging-hitch bike rack that gave me no end of frustration. Getting children's bikes with their smaller frames onto a hanging-hitch bike rack is strenuous and frustrating enough that I felt like I'd been in a wrestling match by the time I'd finished. This Kuat is so easy - it's built like a tank, and you just place the bikes on it and secure them with the arms and the straps. I'm still contemplating getting the 2 bike extension for 4 bikes total - right now I'm putting my daughter's bike in the back of my van. 558012

For example, the 1-1/4-inch hitches like Curt # C12140 usually have a tongue weight (TW) rating of no more than 350-lbs, but the 2-inch Class III hitches like Draw-Tite # 75234 and Curt # C13234 have TW ratings that are roughly...
