Note: This dual-arm rack reduces the need for a bike frame adapter bar (sold separately) to mount a children's, women's, or alternative frame bicycle. However, to mount certain bikes or to keep your bike level on the rack, a bike adapter bar may be required. Most step-through bikes, dual-suspension bikes, and small children's bikes will require a bike adapter bar.


Thule Archway XT spoiler-clearing arced base

The Thule Archway XT is a premium 2-bike trunk rack with long, arcing body tubes designed to clear most factory spoilers. Hold Fast cradles with road dampening technology (RDT) offer extra protection against road shock and vibrations and are suitable for carbon fiber frames. A built-in One-Key System cable lock and TrunkLocker passive security strap help protect your bikes and rack. The patented FitDial mounting system offers quick and easy setup on most vehicles, and independently adjustable dual arms let you transport a wide variety of bike sizes and frame styles.


Patented FitDial System

Thule Archway patented FitDial system

The patented FitDial system lets you easily adjust the rack body to fit the shape of your trunk. The long, arcing body tubes are designed to fit easily over most factory spoilers, so setup is a snap. Simply press the Quick-Fit levers and rotate the base until the centers of the levers line up with the correct numbers on the dials. These numbers are specified in the instructions included with the rack. Just find your vehicle, identify the correct number, and dial it up.


6-Strap Attachment System

Thule Archway XT 6-strap attachment system

While the FitDial system ensures that the body of the rack is correctly seated on your vehicle, it is the 6 nylon straps that keep the rack anchored in place. The steel hooks on these extra-long straps are nylon coated to prevent scratches on your vehicle, and the straps tighten in place with easy-to-use, backpack-style cinches.


Thule Archway XT hook and loop strap tabs

Holders with hook-and-loop tabs (similar to Velcro) are included to bind up the excess strap length when the rack is mounted.


Protective Foam Pads

Thule Archway XT paint-protecting foam pads

Oversized foam pads on the Archway XT's upper and lower bases grip your trunk or rear hatch to keep the rack firmly in place during transport. The pads are designed to provide friction without leaving scratches and scuff marks on your vehicle.


Hold Fast Anti-Sway Cradles with Road Dampening Technology (RDT)

Thule Archway XT Hold Fast RDT cradles

The Archway XT includes premium Hold Fast anti-sway cradles with road dampening technology (RDT), designed for use with carbon fiber bike frames. RDT is composed of 2 layers. The inner layers of the cradles are made of soft fingers that flex to absorb large shocks and jolts from the road. The second, upper layer is composed of thermoplastic elastomer (TPE), a durable, gel-like material with enough flex and grip to absorb road shock and reduce vibration for a smoother ride. The cradles include No-Sway cages that provide a third contact point for the bike, preventing sway and bike-to-bike contact. The cages also have TPE bumper strips that protect your bike frames from scratches.


Independently Adjustable Arms

Thule Archway XT adjustable dual arms

The Archway XT has narrowly spaced arms that make loading and unloading bikes hassle-free. These arms adjust independently of the base and each other with built-in Cinch-Levers. Just flip the lever up, rotate the arm to the desired position, then flip the lever down to lock the arm in place. This enables you to carry bikes with unique frames, and it helps to keep your bikes level on the rack.


Thule Archway XT arm-adjusting Cinch Levers

The Cinch-Levers also allow you to fold down the arms when the rack is not in use and to fold the rack flat for convenient storage.


Integrated Cable Lock and Trunk Security Strap

Thule Archway XT integrated cable lock

The Archway XT includes an integrated cable lock to secure your bikes to the rack. The cable includes a One-Key System lock cylinder that can be swapped out if you own other Thule products and want to use the same key to lock them all.


Thule Archway XT TrunkLocker security strap

A TrunkLocker trunk strap is also included for passive security. This steel-reinforced cable wraps around the rack and the anchor stores inside the trunk, securing the rack to your vehicle when the trunk lid is closed and locked.

Works great. Fits my 2016 Kia Soul perfectly. I’d highly recommend this product for anyone who wants a sturdy, dependable bike carrier. 489075


Comments

After a year on and off of my Kia, still holding up like a champ. I’d have to rank it as the best bike carrier of this type that I’ve ever owned. 5 out of 5 stars from me.

The Thule Archway bike carrier is great. Would recommend the bike rack to anybody in the market looking for a 2 bike carrier and especially if you have a rear spoiler on your car. 150459

2017 Chevrolet Suburban

The Thule bike rack that I received it from etrailer appeared to be oxidized on the aluminum parts of the unit. When I went to tighten one of the hatch straps, the locking mechanism broke. It seemed like it was made of a poor quality "pot metal". I called Thule directly and spoke with a customer service rep. Without so much as another word he told me that he would send out a replacement unit. I received the replacement unit within 5 days. It is unwieldy to install (and for that matter, keep in place) on my 2017 Volvo XC60 and seems to come lose before too many curves and bumps in the road are passed. It may by my vehicle, but I would not trust this rack for any long distance driving/bike hauling, unless you like constantly looking in your rearview mirror to ensure that your bikes are secure! For short trips its probably OK but it is time consuming to install....so I just take my gas guzzling Suburban with its receiver hitch bike rack, bite the gas fillup bullet, and enjoy a day or hour or two of bicycling! I would not purchase this bike rack again. 439690

This is a great rack! Not perfect, but it is great. Once I figured out the configuration for my 2014 Toyota Camry, it went on quickly and held my Giant Liv Avail 2 road bike perfectly. Not much wiggle in the bike at all; the small adjustable stability arm/clamp does a great job at minimizing any sway of the bike while driving. The rack itself is light and easy to take on and off. I am leaving the rack on the car currently, as I am in the military and transport my bike back and forth to work and ride during my lunch for afternoon cardio. The only reason I didn't rate it 5 stars is because the arms that actually hold the bike, fold down when the bike isn't being carried. Although this is a great feature, getting the arms to actually fold and come back up can be a bit of a pain since you have to line up the teeth perfectly. It takes a little wiggle and jiggle to get them seated properly. If this were a little smoother, it would definitely be a 5 star rack. Maybe this will become a little smoother after a little more breaking in. I have only had it 4 days and only driven around town. I will be taking it on a 7 hour road trip in about 6 weeks and will update my review then. etrailer was awesome to do business with and the shipping was ridiculously fast! Extremely impressed with the customer service. Definitely a FIVE STAR COMPANY from my experience. Will absolutely do business with etrailer in the future. 180656

Great product. Easy to install. This rack locks to the car and it locks my bike to the rack. Now I can leave my bike on the rack without worries. 429488

This product is great!! It holds the bikes securely and moves with the car. Even after a few hours on the road it did not loosen or change with the way I installed it! It is light weight and easy to manuver and yet supports the bike completely. The videos were good to review before the first time to install it. I'm very happy with this carrier. 50527

2016 Toyota Camry

Mounted the rack on 2016 Toyota Camry and that was followed by mounting GT women bike. Realized that perhaps this wasn't a good option for type of bikes that have triangular shape bar (where horizontal bar connects to the vertical bar- picture attached). As a result there is not enough room for vertical bar to be fasten properly, bike is not stable when driving around (plastic/rubber piece on the rack that is suppose to hug the vertical bar wouldn't even get close to the bar). Had to drive back to home and now checking options to return the rack or look for some adopter that can compensate the shortcoming. 513162


Comments

We have a solution for your problem. A frame adapter bar like # 64005
Swagman Deluxe Bike Frame Adapter Bar for Women's, Children's, and Alternative Frame Bikes
$27.95
will span the distance between the seat post and handlebar gooseneck. Not only would this create a level attachment point for the bike rack and allow the bike to be carried so its level, but itll make it easier to attach the secondary anti-sway strap. Ill link you to a product video showing how the adapter works.

I was finally able to use the bike carrier. Is was fairly early to put on the vehicle. It's so much easier, than loading the bike into the trunk. The customer service is also excellent. I was notified when the product was shipped, and I also received a phone call and email, after my package arrived to make sure that there were no issues with the product. 453281

2004 Toyota Camry

This is my first modern bike rack, except for a much cruder, simpler one that I had back in the 70s. I bought the 2-bike Thule for my 2004 Toyota Camry, mostly to carry a single bike, but just in case I have an occasional guest. After reviewing the video on the etrailer web site, I took the Thule instruction manual out to the garage to follow carefully through the steps. Installation was a bit more time-consuming than I had anticipated, probably mostly because I wanted to be sure I was getting it right. I might have done better attempting the installation by following the video, as etrailer's documentation is much better than the drawings in the manual. The drawings are too close-up, and don't provide enough context (to give me a perspective of how it's supposed to look. I think (and I'm hoping) that removing and replacing the rack will get easier on subsequent tries. Now that everything is installed and double-checked, I'm confident that this will be a sturdy, reliable bike rack. I do recommend for first-timers like me that you drive around for a bit without the bike on the rack, in order to get used to seeing it in your rear-view mirror, as well as to get used to pulling into and out of parking spaces. 522148

BRILLIANT!!! This was pretty easy to install and is quite durable. The genius part about this is that they have a strap with a puck on it so you can slide that in your trunk so no one can steal your rack. They also have a lock system to put around the bike so no one can steal your bike, like if you went into a store or something. Constructed very well. I highly recommend these before any other cheap bike rack. Looks like they did think of everything. Watch the videos they provide on the web sight to give you more confidence in your installation. Might be easy, but not as simple as a cheap rack. I love it!!! 717253

I bought the Thule bike rack for my Honda Accord 1 year ago so I could haul our bikes to trails around the state. It took about 45 minutes for the initial installation since I had to get the adjustments right, but now it takes less than 5 minutes. Very easy. I was skeptical that it would securely hold our 2 bikes, but I've used it many times without any problems on 70 mph interstate, in the city, and on rural roads. Great product. 696980

My bike rack was easy to install and looks good on my car! I did install some 3M protective paint film where the rack sits on my deck lid and bumber to limit scratches on my black paint. 625614

I just took the rack out for its inaugural run and I couldn't be more pleased with how easy it is and how quietly and stably it rides. I also give kudos to etrailer because the first shipment was a faulty product and as soon as I mentioned it, a new one was on the way. Great service and great product. I would highly recommend both to friends and family. 592893

Service from your company was great. The product works but for my model vehicle the driver does have to pay attention to the straps when in motion. The straps will loosen due to the weight of the bicycles. I had 2 bicycles on the rack and I would stop every 10 miles to check. I used to bungee cords to supplement the straps by hooking the rack with the cords to the roof rack. It helped but the best rack Ive used is s a trailer rack. Thank you for the follow up. 473654

The bike rack arrived super quick and in great condition. I already put it on my car and can't wait to take my bike out. The manual it came with said what number the dial settings should be on which helped a lot. I love that the arms fold down when it's not in use! 377206

Opted for this model because the swing-away mechanism seemed the most practical. Have found it quite easy to use and very sturdy. The rubber straps were stiff and a bit unyielding at first but have softened up a bit and with a strong steady pull I can fasten them tightly around my bike frame. Four bikes fit ok on this one but it's tricky getting them arranged so their pedals and handlebars don't get in each other's way. We usually carry two bikes so place them with a space between them. All in all it was a good investment. 271156


Comments

Thanks for checking back. The rack works great for us, though sometimes wehave to do some wriggling around of the bikes to get them to fit togetherwithout potential damage from bike parts pedals, brake handles, etc.jammed into each other. One of the rubber straps broke when my son wasstretching it for a tight fit. I assume we can get extras. Im glad weopted for the slightly pricier swing-away model - so easy to use even whenloaded with bikes. We are considering the hitch lock now, as we do worryabout it being stolen from the vehicle, since we leave the rack on the carfrom spring-fall. Will want to see if we can get a cylinder that matchesthe integral lock on the rack.

I am not happy with my bike rack. It was difficult for me to put on, and even more difficult to take off and put back on when I had to wash my car. One of the handles on the rack was very hard to lock in place. I have an EX35 and I find it easier to put the back seats down and slide the bike in. I purchased the rack with the lock which can easily be cut with a wire cutter. 261113

This rack was very easy to install. The only glitch was inserting the side clips, my trunk lid has a tight space for the clips to fit. I finally figured out to insert the clip at the top corners of the trunk and slide it down to position. Once I got that worked out snugging the straps completed the install, still very easy. 257455

So...the product was as advertised, works just fine. Can be a bit of a handful to install. What is exceptional is the etrailer service. They did a great job of keeping me informed of the shipment status by phone and email (there was a delay at the manufacturer) and followed up after a year to see how things are going. Customer service is outstanding. 254284

Product does not firmly connect to car, loosened up over 6 hrs of driving on windy roads. Straps stretch and bicycle moves from position and slides off. Gave this bike rack to my son and bought a Saris tray model that attaches to a trailer hitch. Really like this new rack. 247016

1995 Saturn SL2

The Thule Archway XT 2-Bike Rack - Trunk Mount - Th9009XT arrived within a couple days of ordering and was very pleased with this excellent service. Assembly of the Thule TH9009XT to my 1995 SaturnSL2 sedan went well; rear holding brackets had to be bent some to fit into convenient slots at rear bottom of trunk (note: they could not be fastened to the bumper bottom as bumper was too pliable and there was no metal behind it). Also, perhaps if metal sleeves were around the threaded bolt of the Patented FitDial system with Quick-Fit levers it would be easier to slide the locking mechanism back and forth for raising and lowering the rack bike mounting bars. All in all I am very happy with the final results and the color even matched my car :o) I rate the service and the bike rack at 5 stars. 229294

This item arrived just in time. My husband, a courier, got a flat back tire in pouring rain and had to lock up and leave his bike far from help. We attached the Thule Archway XT onto our little Toyota Prius C, picked up the bike, got it to a shop, and had him back on the job in a matter of an hour! This item was a lifesaver! Considering I have never driven with anything attached to the back of any car, and the whole idea of it made me extremely nervous, this item's sturdiness and simplicity has allayed all my fears. And thanks, etrailer.com, for the great how-to-attach video - the paper instructions weren't all that clear, so the video was a godsend! 202197

Thank you for taking the time to leave some feedback. This carrier was designed with independently adjustable arms to better accommodate womens frames. We do also offer the 982XT Frame Adapter to make mounting of womens bikes easier to the rear mounted carriers. Thanks again!

My vehicle is a 2006 Convertible Toyota Solara. This is my first bike rack, but the instructions were fairly clear. The rack was sturdy when secured and the bike did not move much, not even when placed furthest from the vehicle. The lock only reaches the bike furthest from the vehicle and I found that odd. Since I'll be using it for a single bike, it won't make a difference for me. I was worried the rack my scratch the paint on my vehicle or dent the trunk, but neither occurred. Very pleased with this purchase. 189782

  • The Saris Solo 1 Bike Carrier - Fixed Arms - Trunk Mount # SA102 is a great option for a single bike carrier. If you are looking for a basic carrier that will be durable it is a great option. It doesn't provide the security features of other racks, but if you are just looking to get your bike to the trail, it will be a great rack for you. I don't know what rack the sr101 is so I can't compare it for you. If you are looking for more security in a trunk mounted rack, then I recommend...

  • Does Trunk Mount Bike Rack Need to be Removed for Hatch Access on a 2011 Honda Element
  • Yes, you will need to remove the Kuat Highline 2 Bike Rack # HIT2B from the trunk of your 2011 Honda Element before opening up the tailgate and upper door. This is the same case for all trunk mount bike racks on any vehicle. If you are wanting to have unrestricted access to the rear hatch area of your Honda Element without removing your bikes or bike rack then you can install a trailer hitch and use a swing-away bike rack. For this application I recommend the Draw-Tite # 75659 which...

  • Bike Carrier Options for 2019 Honda Civic Si Coupe with Spoiler
  • The Hollywood Racks # HRF2-3 trunk-mount bike rack is not a fit for your 2019 Honda Civic Si Coupe although it does work well with many other vehicles that have a spoiler. I checked the latest 2019 rack fit data from Hollywood Racks, Yakima and Thule to find you a solution and currently (June 2019) the only trunk-mount option is from Thule and only for a 2-bike carrier, their Archway # TH9009XT. My Thule contact advised that this rack will work only with factory-installed spoilers;...

  • Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2016 BMW X5
  • Yes, the Thule Archway part # TH9009XT has been confirmed as a fit for your 2016 BMW X5 whether it is an M model or not so it would work 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 Women's and Alternative Frame Bike Adapter # 64005 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...

  • Recommended Trunk Mount Bike Rack For 2015 Honda Civic Sedan Si
  • The trunk mount bike rack I recommend for your 2015 Civic Sedan Si is the Thule Archway XT, part # TH9009XT. This bike rack features the Hold Fast cradles and an integrated locking cable to secure the bikes to the rack. This has a capacity of 70 lbs for 2 bikes. If you are planning on carrying bikes with alternative frames like kids bikes or women's bikes I recommend using an adapter bar like part # 64005. This attaches between the seat post and the handlebar stem and allows the...

  • Recommended Bike Rack for Step-Thru Electric Bike on 2013 Chevy Volt
  • None of the trunk-mounted bike racks that fit your 2013 Chevy Volt will allow you to open the trunk with the rack on. Each would also require you to use an adapter bar - which attaches to the rack - for a bike with a step-thru frame. Additionally, trunk-mounted racks are not a good option for electric bikes because they do not have the weight capacity necessary to support an electric bike. That said, there is a way for you to avoid using an adapter bar and have access to your Volt's...

  • Best Trunk Mount Bike Racks For a 2004 Infiniti G35 Coupe
  • For your G35 Coupe, I recommend looking at the Thule Archway XT 2-Bike Rack, # TH9009XT. Thule is a leader in the bike rack industry, so you will not be sacrificing quality with this bike rack. Both bike racks have folding, narrow arms for easy loading, anti-sway cradles to keep the bike from moving and quick FitDial systems for easy mounting. The Archway XT also includes locks to secure the bike rack and bikes while you are away. If you will be carrying any women's, children's, or...

  • Recommended Trunk-Mounted Bike Carrier For 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • If a thief really wants to take the bikes or rack they will figure a way to get them, but we do have a couple bike racks that make it much harder. The Thule Passage 2 Bike Carrier, part # TH910XT is a nice bike carrier but it does not have locks, so it is really tough to find a way to lock the rack and bikes. I do have another solution for you. I recommend the Thule Archway, part # TH9009XT. This bike carrier features an integrated locking cable to secure the bike to the carrier....

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver for a 2014 Mazda 3 Hatchback with LED Taillights
  • The trailer hitch I recommend is the Draw-Tite part # 24914. This is a Class-l hitch and has a 1-1/4 inch receiver opening. Unfortunately, none of the hitches we currently offer will be concealed as you will be able to see the cross tube and receiver opening. Since you don't want to see a hitch when not in use, another option I recommend is the Thule Archway XT # TH9009XT trunk mount bike rack. It's a 2-bike trunk rack with a maximum weight capacity of 70 pounds. It also has a integrated...

  • Recommended Trunk-Mounted Bike Rack for 2009 Infiniti G37 Coupe
  • I do have a great option for you, however the Thule Raceway PRO 2-Bike Rack # TH9001PRO referenced in your question is not confirmed to fit your 2009 Infiniti G37 Coupe. For your Coupe model, I instead recommend looking at the Thule Archway X2 2-Bike Rack # TH9009XT. This is an excellent, 2-bike carrier that is confirmed to work well on your vehicle. It features long, arcing body tubes that will avoid contact with the vehicle and Hold Fast anti-sway cradles with road dampening technology...

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for 2015 Toyota Venza
  • For your 2015 Toyota Venza, the Thule Raceway PRO 2-Bike Rack # TH9001PRO that you referenced is a great choice. This rack features Thule's Hold Fast anti-sway cradles with no-sway cages to prevent bike-to-bike and bike-to-vehicle contact. The cradles also feature pads to help dampen road shock on the bike and minimize vibration. Additionally, the Raceway PRO features an integrated cable lock to secure your bikes to the rack and locking covers to keep the bike secured to the trunk. Your...

  • Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Options for 2008 Ford Fusion w/ OEM Spoiler
  • If you click the provided link, you can see the trunk mounted bike rack options for your 2008 Ford Fusion. Yakima and Thule do test fits on vehicles with OEM spoilers, so anything offered by either of those companies would work. Though it's a bit pricey, I really like the Thule Raceway, part # TH9001PRO. The rack is designed so that the weight of the rack and bikes is spread out over a large portion of the trunk lid and the bumper, which lessens the chance of anything being damaged....

  • Recommended Trunk Mount Bike Rack for 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT Sport Hatchback
  • For your 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT Sport Hatchback, I recommend the Thule Gateway XT 2-Bike Rack # TH9006XT. I checked with Thule and was able to confirm that this will fit and work great on your GT (hatchback) model Elantra. This is a really nice, 2-bike trunk rack that features long, arching body tubes designed specifically for vehicles like yours and Hold Fast cradles that will hold the bikes at 3 different points. The carrier can secure two bikes of up to 35 pounds each. I recommend...

  • Recommended 2-Bike Rack on a 2016 Subaru Impreza 5-Door Hatchback
  • We do have trunk mount bike racks that will fit your 2016 Subaru Impreza 5-Door, as long a you don't have a spoiler. I recommend the Thule Archway XT # TH9009XT which has no-sway cages to prevent the bikes from coming into contact with each other or your Impreza as well as road dampening technology, holding the bikes at 3 points. It includes both a locking cable to lock the bikes to the rack, and a trunklocker strap so the carrier is secure to your car. If you're carrying any women's...

  • Why is Thule Archway 3-Bike Trunk Rack TH9009XT Not Recommended for 2017 Honda Civic
  • The fit of specific bike racks on a vehicle is determined by the rack maker based on evaluation and testing of the vehicle. In the case of Thule, they confirmed that their 2-bike Archway XT rack # TH9009XT is a fit for the Civic sedan but that the higher weight of the larger 3-bike version would be too much for the car's thin sheet metal. There could be a risk of denting or dimpling the metal. That said, the 3-bike rack will mount properly on the car. Thule happens to be very cautious about...

  • Differences Between the Thule Archway, Gateway and Passage
  • The best of the three you mentioned is the Thule Archway XT part # TH9009XT. This rack has an integrated cable lock and upgraded frame cradles. Aside from that it is the exact same as the # TH9006XT. The big advantage the two mentioned racks have over the # TH910XT is the adjustable arms. This rack has a fixed position for the arms of the rack so the bikes might be carried at a sharp angle. The other two racks allow you to adjust the angle of the arms so that the bikes can be carried...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 2015 Nissan Murano That Does Not Require a Trailer Hitch
  • If you need to transport only 2 bikes on your 2015 Nissan Murano then you have several trunk-mount rack options from Thule, all of which can be seen on the included link. Two of these 2-bike racks include locks to both secure the rack to your Murano and your loaded bikes to the rack. These carriers are the Archway XT # TH9009XT and the outstanding Raceway 2 # TH9001PRO, which is among the most user-friendly trunk racks on the market. The Raceway 2 uses vinyl-coated steel cables to...

  • Will Thule Passage 2 Bike Carrier # TH910XT Fit 2015 Mazda CX-5
  • Yes, the Thule Passage 2 Bike Carrier, # TH910XT, will fit the 2015 Mazda CX-5 and just happens to be one of our most popular picks for the CX-5. The Passage is a great economical rack that is loaded with some great features like the patented fit dial adjustment system, cushioned anti-sway cradles, and dual arm support for added stability. As for being the best, in my opinion it's "sibling" the Raceway PRO, # TH9001PRO takes that title. This rack isn't quite as economical but it has...

  • Comparison Between Thule Archway # TH9009XT and Gateway # TH9006XT For a 2011 Ford Fusion
  • The primary difference between the Thule Archway # TH9009XT and the Thule Gateway # TH9006XT is the fact that the Archway offers upgraded Hold-Fast cradles with road dampening technology (better shock absorbing padding) and an integrated cable lock to secure the bikes to the rack, while the Gateway offers the Thule standard Hold Fast cradles and no cable lock. I've confirmed that the two bike versions of both racks are compatible with your Fusion, but Thule doesn't recommend the 3 bike...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation For a 2011 Ford Fusion that Does Not Use the Rear Bumper For Support
  • Since you are concerned about the finish on your 2011 Ford Fusion I would recommend a trailer hitch and hitch mounted bike rack for carrying your bikes. The Draw-Tite Class I Sport Frame Receiver Hitch would be a great choice and installs easily with no modifications to your vehicle. We have an installation video for this hitch, see link, and it is the hitch most of our customers who own the 2011 Ford Fusion select. Next you will need a bike rack. It is not recommended to carry more...

  • Lockable Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendations for 2015 Honda Civic
  • The easiest to use trunk mounted bike rack that incorporates a cable lock and would lock to the vehicle would bed the Thule Raceway, part # TH9001PRO. The rack uses 4 lockable retractable cables to attach to the vehicle, as opposed to the difficult to use 6 straps and buckles that other racks use. If you don't mind using a strap rack, the Thule Archway, part # TH9009XT includes Thule's TrunkLocker strap (reinforced strap) to secure the rack to the vehicle and features a built-in cable...

  • How To Carry 2 Bikes On 2019 Honda Civic Si With Spoiler and Center Exhaust
  • As long as your 2019 Civic Si is a Sedan and not a Coupe or Hatchback the Thule Archway XT 2-Bike Rack part # TH9009XT will work to carry two bikes on your Civic with the spoiler as long as the spoiler is factory. It will not fit with spoilers that are after market. I have attached a video for your reference. However, the rack may cause bumper deformity if left on the trunk for too long. The best option is to add a roof rack to your 2019 Honda Civic Si so you won't have to worry about...

  • Comparison Between Thule # TH910XT Passage and # TH9009XT Trunk Mount Bike Racks
  • There are three upgrades you'll find on the Thule # TH9009XT Archway that you won't find on the # TH910XT Passage. The Archway provides upgraded cradles that are padded a bit heavier for better protection for your bike. The Archway also includes an integrated cable lock and a TrunkLocker strap that you can shut in the hatch that secures the rack to the vehicle. These two features would help deter theft. These features explain the price differential, but it'll be up to you to decide...

  • Installing Trunk Mount Bike Rack Top Straps on a 2016 Acura MDX
  • The rubber you are describing sounds like weather stripping which is present on all vehicles with a rear hatch. Sometimes it is more visible than other times. It is compressible meaning that the hook end of a trunk mount bike rack strap can still fit in and grip the metal of the hatch. But it still possible that there isn't space and you will have to work the hooks in from the corners. If you were to use the Thule Archway # TH9009XT on your 2016 Acura MDX it would mean that the top straps...

  • Will Using a Trunk Mount Bike Rack Scratch or Damage Paint on a 2008 Ford Escape
  • Anything that makes contact with the vehicle has the potential to mar or scratch the paint. You would need to make sure that the vehicle and rack are clean where they come into contact with each other. Also, a coat of wax in those areas on the vehicle will also help add some protection. The straps are long enough to secure the rack to the vehicle. You will not need extra straps. The Thule Passage # TH910XT does not come with any locks. The Archway, # TH9009XT, has a cable lock in the...

There's an integrated cable lock that uses Thule's One-Key System so the core can be changed out to match other Thule products and there's a TrunkLocker strap that fits into the Jeep's hatch. The cable lock secures the bikes to the rack while the strap secures the rack to the Jeep. I've linked videos on...

  • Trailer Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2012 Lexus RX 450 H

However, you will need to consult the lease agreement and the dealership from which the vehicle was leased to determine if you can install a hitch. If you can install a trailer hitch, I recommend the Draw-Tite hitch # 75676. There is no drilling to install the hitch but you would need to trim or remove a rubber air deflector/fascia to install...
