Video Transcript for Saris Bones Trunk Mount 3 Bike Rack Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Saris Bones Trunk Mounted 3 bike rack in gray, part number Sa801. This bike rack is also available in a wide variety of colors. The Saris Bones is made of 100% recyclable material that is strong, durable, and completely rust resistant. The top set of arms on this bike rack is arched, as you can see, to fit around a lot of the newer vehicles with the spoilers. The top set of feet as well as the bottom set of feet are a soft rubber that's going to protect the vehicle's finish along with the hooks as well that are coated in a nice rubber paint to also help protect your vehicle's finish. This bike rack is completely adjustable. With these grooves here, you can loosen up these black knobs and adjust the arms to accommodate almost any make and model of vehicle. It's also equipped with these nice ratcheting straps.

It provides a nice strong hold for your bike in the cradles while you are traveling down the road. Also equipped, are the anti-sway cradles. This is going to wrap around the vertical bar on your bike and help prevent it from swaying back and forth, coming into contact with your other bikes or the bike rack itself. The Saris Bones has a carrying capacity of three bicycles with a weight capacity of 35 pounds per bike. It is made in the USA and comes with a limited lifetime warranty. Now, we'll go ahead and show you how to install it. Directly out of the box, the bike rack comes ready to install on the vehicle. First, you need to begin by setting the bottom set of feet on the upper tier of the rear bumper.

We'll then need to loosen up the black knobs here at the top to adjust the arms to fit the trunk. Do this on both sides. Now, we're not going to tighten them down just because we haven't really established a set position yet. Now, we're going to raise up our cradle arms just a little bit so that the bottom feet will fit a little bit better on the top of the bumper. Now, we'll go ahead and raise up the cradle arms, which is going to allow us to position the feet a little bit better. Now they adjust the same way just by loosening up these black knobs.

We'll bring them towards the center and then kind of bring them up a little bit just to get them out of the way and then just tighten them down loosely. Now with the bottom set of feet free, we'll go ahead and place the feet onto the bumper making sure the majority of the pad is touching the vehicle. We'll go ahead and rotate these feet down, then bring it forward just to see how our placement looks on the trunk. They seem to be a little bit too far up so what we're going to do is just slide the arms out again and then readjust them. Now that we have the arms kind of in position then we'll just tighten down the black knobs to secure them in place. Now that we have the bike rack fitted to the trunk, we're ready to secure it by the clips. Now, there are three clips here on each side of the bike rack.

You'll know which clip is which because they are labeled and actually the top clip is going to be the fattest one. We'll go ahead and do that one first just to help us hold the bike rack up, then hook it in place, tighten down the strap just a little bit just to help us keep the bike rack in place. We'll then repeat the same process with the other side top strap. Now, with the top set of straps in place, we'll go ahead and secure the bottom set. Now, the bottom set of straps is going to have the skinniest of the three clips. Then simply place it into the bottom of the trunk. Now, depending on your application, you made need to open up your trunk to get the clips in place. We'll then tighten it down just a little bit. We'll then go ahead and repeat the same process for the other side. With the bottom set of straps in place, we'll then go ahead and secure the side clips. Now, when you are hooking in your side clip, you want to make sure that this clip is in contact with only metal so you don't damage your tail lights. With that strap in position, then we'll just tighten it down just a little bit and then move to the other side. Now that we have all three sets of straps in place, we'll go ahead and further tighten them down to secure the bike rack to the trunk. We're just going to do a little bit of each set at a time so that way we don't off set the bike rack from the center. Now with all of our straps tightened down and the bike rack is secured, we'll go ahead and just tie off our excess strap. Now with the cradle arms in the stored position, we'll go ahead and swing them out just like all the other arms of the bike rack. We'll loosen up the black knob and slide the arm off of these grooves. The grooves here will help keep the arm in place and the smooth spot will allow you to rotate the arms. You just need to make sure that your cradle arms are level or slightly angled up. Basically, you just don't want any of the pressure on the bikes to be downward so we'll just make sure that the arm is level. When we have the arm in the correct position, then we'll just tighten down that black knob again, which will secure it in place. Now we'll just go ahead and repeat the same process with the other arm just making sure that it matches. Now that we've gone over some of the features and shown you how to install it, we'll go ahead and show you how to load up a bike. First, we'll go ahead and undo the cradle straps. We'll push in this button here at the buckle with the Saris logo, which will free up the strap. Then just repeat the same process for the other two straps. Now that we have our cradle straps open, we'll simply place the frame of the bike into the cradles. Now, I'm going to start with the anti-sway strap here and secure it around the vertical bar of the bike. We'll just repeat the same process with the other two straps. Now with our bike all loaded up, we'll go ahead and take it out for a test drive and show you how it looks in action. That will complete today's review of the Saris Bones Trunk Mounted 3 bike rack in gray, part number Sa801. .

I love it! What an amazingly clever design. It feels solid on my Honda 2008 CRV and looks very smart. The materials are of excellent quality and well made. I feel very confident this happy purchase will carry my grandkids 3 mountain, bikes as designed safely with features easy for use. It was a breeze to attach to my vehicle and not heavy and awkward with my arthritic granny hands. Watching the video for my CRV helped install quickly. Questions with customer service were handled with courteous, friendly, helpful speed. It was a pleasure doing business with this most professional, responsive company. Sorry no photo. Will supply later if you still want? 539228

Arrived in just 2days. Product seems to be sturdy and well made. I installed onto my 14 Chrysler 200 in just a few mins. I did put tape on the hooks so it didn’t scratch my trunk . I put two bikes a full size hybrid mountain/road bike and my sons bmx bike. It worked great would recommend to any one needing a bike carrier. 560593

Purchased this Saris Bones Hitch 3 Bike Rack approximately one year ago. It continues to work perfectly for my needs (transporting one or two high-end road bikes). Bikes have been transported for thousands of miles without issue. The vertical piece on the rack can occasionally become slightly loose at the bottom, but cab easily be tightened with an appropriately sized socket and hex wrench. 565789

Holds 3 light bikes comfortably. Adjusting semi rigid straps a bit difficult for me, depending on angle. Hitch rattles some tho I imagine it needs this amount of "give." Recommded by a friend I trust. 366583

I purchased this bike rack for my wife and I. It is very well made and easy to install. I had it unpackaged and on my vehicle within 30 minutes. Ongoing removal and installation only takes me about 5 minutes. I purchased the Saris Beam Bike Frame Adapter for my wife's bike to make it easy to put her bike on the rack. I highly recommend it for transporting a woman's bike. Overall I've found this bike rack and adapter to be great products. 375956

Carrier is good buy for bikes with narrow or limited suspension space to put on bike carrier. Goes on easy with quick setup. No metal parts to touch car. Only drawbacks: 1. Antisway straps don’t cinch down enough to prevent bike sway when in motion. 2. Cinch straps are somewhat difficult to loosen when taking bike off carrier. 512539

This has turned out to be a superb product. After pulling it out of the box, I was a little concerned about how long it would take to attach to my CRV. Turns out, it didn't take long at all. I have a 2015 Honda CRV, with a spoiler, and I was able to attach it and not have a problem. I have to lift the tailgate to attach the lower clips, but it connects just fine. I'll give it a test on the road this weekend with a 3 hour drive, but I'm pretty confident it'll do the job. Very pleased with the purchase. 254736

The 2-bike SUV carrier 2 model is a sturdy, easy to use product. However, it is made for male bikes only, and using the top bar on the male bike is crucial to using this carrier. My wife's bike does not have this top rail, making it difficult to mount both bikes. This distinction was not mentioned in the advertising information 242378

THIS PRODUCT SUITS MY NEED FOR WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR. HITCH MOUNTING IS VERY LOOSE IN THE FRAME MOUNT. HAD TO MAKE SHIMS TO ADJUST FIT. TILT IS ALSO VERY POORLY MADE. MORE SHIMING INVOLVED TO SECURE BETTER. COULD USE A STRAP TO HOLD FRONT TIRE TO UPRIGHT POLE. I HAD TO USE A NUMBER OF VELCRO STRAPPING TO MAKE ALL ADJUSMENTS. BOTTOM LINE.. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.. 425960

Review from a similar Saris Bones in Trunk Bike Racks


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. 418762

Review from a similar Saris Bones in Trunk Bike Racks


This is quite a nifty rack for a quite small car (I have a Mazda3). It even folds down and fits in the small trunk of my car. Initially I was worried it would be time-consuming to take it out, set it up etc but it's pretty quick and the straps are labelled. I worry a bit if I would try to take 2 bikes on a long trip involving freeway. While it is "pretty" solid, obviously you don't want bikes coming loose at 70 mph. The other real frustration, and it's not just hypothetical, is the stupid cheapo plastic roll straps that cinch the bike tightly to the rack. They simply don't work as intended, very hard to explain, but look at the rack photo. See the circular straps. They have teeth on them and a side button that should allow you to tighten or release the teeth. But that whole apparatus is quite flimsy and the button doesn't work. Bike shop, kids, everyone notices this flaw. Otherwise, and despite the strap, I'd buy it again- it does what I need it to do. 468164

The Saris Bones 2 Bike Carrier is a great product. It took some maneuvering to get the right hold on my 2002 E39 BMW, but it sits and rides well. The product is well designed and should hold up for a long time. My only concern was the feet might rub on the paint, but the rubber endings do a good job of preventing that. I tie the excess ribbon from the straps to additionally secure the bike's wheels and pedals, but I'm also going to get some Velcro straps to keep them from flapping at high speeds. Great Product. 196400

Once I watched the Setup Video provided by etrailer.com I was confident in my purchase. Upon receiving my bike rack I spent a few minutes reading the manual and then went out to my garage to install it. It took minutes. After reading the manual I realized that I would require "straps" to keep the front tire in place during transportation. Overall I am happy with my purchase and quick delivery. 145103

It took a little while to get the arms where they needed to be and straps for the first time to make sure it was secure. But now that we have it set we just put it on tighten the straps and off we go! It's amazing and sturdy a little pricey but it's worth the money, I don't feel like our 2 bikes will fall off. I love It! Just make sure u get a bar adjuster for women's bikes or kids. Etrailer is the way to go, free shipping and it was here in 3 days! 398506

The item was shipped within minutes after the order was placed online. (Thanks etrailer.) When the bike carrier arrived and I took it out of the box, admittedly I was a little intimidated by all the straps, etc. But after looking it over and reading the instructions, it was a snap to assemble, mostly because of the large and clear-to-understand images. The Saris Bones 2 bike rack with optional hatch hugger straps fits my 2016 Honda CR-V snugly and exactly as advertised. I'm very satisfied and ready to ride. 235601

Review from a similar Saris Bones in Trunk Bike Racks


I like the bike rack; but the rack seems to be made more for bikes with cross bars; my wife's bike does not have one and its a challenge loading her bike securely to the straps on the rack. I also wish there was a quick disconnect of the rack from the hitch. The rack comes with a threaded bolt, nut and cotter pin. I also purchased the security lock that locks onto the threaded bolt. However I don't keep my rack on the car all the time. When I reach my destination by car I take the rack off and lock it into my trunk. Threading and unthreading the bolt is time consuming; A quick discount to and from the hitch would be ideal for those times I lock the rack in my trunk; which is most of the time. 268259


Comments

I still feel the same about what I wrote a year ago. The only difference is I dont take the rack off my car as much. I like the rack overall. The difficulty of loading my wifes bike with no cross bar is still a challenge.

Thanks for the follow up. For easier loading of your wife's bike I recommend using an adapter bar like part # SA3040. This adapter will allow you to load her bike easily and safely.

Used the Saris today for the first time. My previous carrier was a Yakama that slips into the trailer hitch. The Saris is a big improvement in my opinion. I hauled my one to the American River bike trail. There was. O swaying or movement when turning or going over speed bumps. The bike is easy to fasten to and remove from the rack. Once the bike is removed, I loosened the top and side straps and it was easy to remove and reattach. I recommend this carrier over any other carriers I have used. 369536

We use the SA801 rack on our 2016 Honda CRV. It fits well, stays secure and is relatively easy to install. The straps that hold the bikes onto the rack are a different story. They are hard to insert into the buckles due to the stiffness of the strap and buckle. We basically gave up using them and went to bungees. Perhaps we are missing something here. I would still buy another one and recommend it to others, but the tie-downs could be re-thought. Pete & Karen Brown 453918

Review from a similar Saris Bones in Trunk Bike Racks


This is the first bike rack I have ever owned. The rack will be used primarily for me to transport my bike to training rides and triathlons. Occasionally, we will transport 1-3 additional bikes if my husband or sons want to go on a ride. In the past, I had to remove my front wheel in order to fit my bike inside my 2013 Toyota Highlander, and we weren't getting more than one bike in there. I went with the Saris based on the recommendation of a triathlon coach/mountain biker. My husband and I mounted the rack onto the car without difficulty. It is easy enough to get on or off by myself, which is useful since we will not be leaving on the car permanently. Thankfully, with it mounted, and the arms folded down, my 2013 Highlander fits into the garage with no problem. One useful feature that I discovered is the ability to position the arms closer together for my shorter bike. I attached photos of the arms attached all the way wide, or a little narrower. I noticed just a minor amount of movement of the rack while I drove, but it was mostly while I went through a construction zone that has a lot of bumps. Even then, it didn't seem unstable. Additionally, I used a small bungee cord to strap the front tire to the cross bar of the bike, to reduce the movement of that tire. I would recommend the Saris Bones Hitch without reservation. 466438

I have a 2013 Nissan Maxima w a spoiler. Fit very well. Easy to install, very sturdy with the 6 straps. Great for local trips. I did take it from Pgh to NC w 2 bikes. No problems, still pretty solid for a trunk mounted rack. Only negatives; metal strap clips may touch the spoiler & scratch the paint. I wrapped & taped them w bubble rap. No way to lock the rack to the car. I usually remove it & put it in the trunk for local rides. For a long trip I ran a steel cable From the spare tire mount in the trunk & secured it to a cable bike lock going through the hollow tube of the rack & the bike frames. Need 6 to 8 feet of cable w the ends crimped. It's a great rack but due to the cost I'd be very disappointed if it was stolen w or w/out the bikes. 297060

Love it! Was simple to install. Only two critcizizuims I have: 1. The low hook have too sharp of an angle and I need to spring them wider so as to be able to properly insert them. Someone in engineering got carried away. 2. There would be a significant impact to the user friendliness of the rack if more attention were focused on management of the excess strapping left over after tightening down the rack. It's just just clumsy and unsightly to have to tie it off! Aside from these minor issues everything else about the rack is superb and I would highly recommend it! 258515

Fits well on my 2019 Toyota Camry Hybrid. Nice, well protected strap clamps for my mountain bike. I really like the two additional stabilizing clamps for the bike to prevent swaying.

Beats an $800 hitch. Sturdy and easy to assemble after you have fit it to your car the first time. Fits a 2016 Honda CR-V perfectly. It's true that you won't be able to use your rear wiper, but I don't usually cycle in the rain anyhow. The available online videos are the best way to do your initial fitting. 538799

I’m very pleased. The rack is very well made and exactly what I needed for my Volvo XC 90. Also liked that it was easy to set up. I’m 72 and like “easy”! 495890

  • Recommended Trunk Mount Bike Rack that Won't Scratch or Dent 2015 Mercedes-Benz 300C
  • Let me begin by saying that anytime you have a piece of equipment strapped to the painted finish of a vehicle, the potential for scratches or dents exists, no getting around it. This being said, the risks can be minimized by putting as little weight as possible on the racks and by observing the racks weight capacity, by installing the rack exactly as described in the instructions, and by keeping the surfaces where the rack and vehicle touch absolutely clean. A good coat of quality car...

  • Recommended Bike Rack for 2015 Audi A3 Convertible
  • I have just the trunk mounted bike rack for your 2015 Audi A3 convertible. Check out the Saris Bones. This rack is available in a 2-bike version, # SA805BL, and a 3-bike version, # SA801BL. There are also several different colors available that can be seen on the fit guide page that I linked for you. At this time these are the only trunk mount bike racks listed as a fit for your vehicle. If you will be carrying any women's, children's or alternative frame bikes that lack the traditional...

  • Mounting Saris Bones 3 Bike Carrier Trunk Mount to 2016 Mazda CX-5
  • I spoke with my contact at Saris and he confirmed that for your 2016 Mazda CX-5, the proper mounting location of the lower feet on the Saris Bones 3 Bike Carrier # SA801BL is in the rear license plate well. I have attached an image with a different model Bones Bike Carrier on a CX-5, but the fitment is the same.

  • 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...

  • Methods to Avoid Trunk-Mount Bike Carrier from Damaging Paint Finish on Vehicle
  • Any trunk-mount bike carrier will rest on part of the vehicle, primarily the bumper cover which supports most of the loaded rack's weight. Most trunk racks install in a similar manner, also using 4 to 6 straps to grip the outside edges of the hatch, which help distribute the total weight across more surface area and stabilize the rack when you are in motion. Since the Saris Bones 3 # SA801BL is among the lightest available racks it is a good choice for your 2014 Juke. The clips that...

  • Recommended Bike Rack For 2017 Honda Civic Coupe
  • We only have one bike rack that will fit your 2017 Honda Civic Coupe EX-T. It is the Saris Bones and is available in 2 bike like the # SA805BL or 3 bike like # SA801BL. It is a very simple design and yet the beauty is in its simplicity. It is injection-molded plastic so it is durable and rustproof. It has rubber feet and vinyl coated hooks so it won't scratch your car's finish. It also separated the bikes on different levels. It is available in different colors too (black, gray, yellow,...

  • Difference Between The Thule Archway XT And The Saris Bones Bike Rack
  • Both the Thule Archway XT 3-Bike Rack part # TH9010XT and the Saris Bones 3 Bike Carrier part # SA801BL are great trunk mounted bike rack options for your 2016 Volvo XC70. However, each of these have a few key differences and similarities. Both bike racks have a 6 point mounting system in addition to an individual bike weight capacity of 35 lbs. I recommend the Thule Archway as this bike rack comes with cable locks to deter theft of your bikes while installed on the rack as opposed...

  • Recommend 3-Bike Trunk-Mount Rack Options For 2008 Mazda 3 Sedan
  • I do have a solution for you to carry 3 bikes on your 2008 Mazda 3 Sedan, but since there are only Class I hitch receivers available for your vehicle, you would be limited to using a 2-bike hitch rack with a Class I hitch. As you noted, Class I hitches are limited to carrying 2 bikes due to the stresses applied on a hitch from a loaded bike rack. What you can do is use a trunk mounted 3 bike rack like the Saris Bones 3 Bike Rack, part # SA801BL. This trunk mounted bike rack will only...

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack Options for a 2018 Toyota Camry
  • I do have options for you but Thule has not confirmed any of their trunk mount bike racks to work on a 2018 Toyota Camry yet. If you would like to wait for the release of Thule bike racks confirmed to fit the 2018 models then you are more than welcome to do so but as the 2017 and 2018 model years are so different I would not be able to speculate fitment. With that being said the Saris Bones 3 Bike Carrier is an excellent option for your vehicle. It can carry up to 3 bikes weighing up...

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2015 Audi A7
  • The Saris Bones bike racks have been confirmed to fit your 2015 Audi A7. At this time these are the only trunk mount bike racks listed as a fit for this vehicle. I have attached a link to our fit guide page that shows all of the trunk mount bike racks that fit your vehicle. The Saris Bones is available in a 2-bike version, # SA805BL, and a 3-bike version, # SA801BL.

  • 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.

  • Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for 2014 Honda CR-V
  • For your 2014 Honda CR-V we have great trunk mounted bike rack options, but the Yakima KingJoe 3 is not confirmed as a fit for this vehicle. I would recommend the Saris Bones part # SA801BL which is a confirmed fit and would be a great option for carrying 3 bikes. It has all of the nicer features the more expensive racks have at a much better price. Check out the review video I attached that shows the rack installed on a similar 2015 CR-V. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative...

  • How to Make Sure that the Feet of the Saris Bones 3 # SA801BL Sit Properly on a 2018 Toyota Camry
  • When installing the Saris Bones 3 # SA801BL on your 2018 Toyota Camry the best way to tighten down the straps is to alternate a little at a time with each set of straps. If you initially really tightened down the bottom straps then that would explain why your top straps were not as secure. You also need to make sure that the feet are oriented properly. You can put your heavier bike in the spot nearest your car and the lighter bike at the spot furthest away, but bike manufacturers...

  • Compatibility of Saris Bones 3 Trunk-Mount Bike Rack SA801 on 2015 Kia Rio
  • The Saris Bones 3 trunk-mount bike rack # SA801BL is a confirmed fit on both the sedan and hatchback versions of the 2016 Kia Rio. You are 100-percent correct about using the Hatch Huggers # SA3035 in place of the rack's side straps. I confirmed this requirement with Saris. They are sold as a set of two.

  • How to Carry Bikes on a 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid
  • I am happy to report that Draw-Tite trailer hitch # 24972 is a confirmed fit for your 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid! I have included a link to the installation details for you as well. Since hitch # 24972 is a Class I, 1-1/4 inch hitch you will be able to carry a maximum of 2 bikes using a Class 1 compatible bike rack. One of the most popular compatible racks for Accord owners is the Kuat Transfer # TS02B. This is a platform style rack that has a U-shaped frame which makes loading and unloading...

  • 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...

  • Does Hollywood Racks Over the Top and Saris Bones 3 Fit 2018 Honda CR-V
  • None of the trunk mounted bike racks we offer can be used and allow the rear windshield wiper to still function. The Saris Bones 3 # SA801BL and the Hollywood Racks Over the Top part # HRF2-3 are a fit for your 2018 Honda CR-V and would work well aside from the rear windshield wiper. 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...

  • Will the Saris Bones 3 Bike Carrier Fit Both A 2017 BMW X1 and a 2016 Lexus ES300H
  • The Saris Bones 3 Bike, # SA801BL, is confirmed to fit the 2016 Lexus ES 300h. However, this bike rack will not fit the 2017 BMW X1. For this vehicle, I recommend the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 3 Bike Rack, # HRF2-3. This rack is confirmed to fit your 2017 BMW X1. The Over-the-Top bike rack will give you a 3 bike carrying capacity like the Saris Bones bike rack. The Hollywood Racks includes anti-sway cradles to prevent bike-to-bike sway and adjustable cam buckle straps to secure the...
