Video Transcript for Saris Sentinel Trunk Mount 2 Bike Rack Review

Speaker: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Saris Sentinel Trunk Mounted Two Bike Rack Part No. SA1051. The Sentinel has these unique cradles that can move up and down the arms to accommodate different bike widths and also can tilt to accommodate different bike styles. This can also be tilted down and wrap around the seat post to act as an anti-sway strap. The Sentinel has this nice, soft foam pads on the upper and bottom portion of the bike rack. This is going to help protect your car's finish and also help the bike rack from slipping. The clips are coated in a rubber paint which is also going to help prevent your paint from being damaged. The Saris Sentinel is made in the USA, has a weight capacity of 35 pounds per bike and comes with a limited lifetime warranty.

Now that we've gone over some of the special features we're going to show you how to install it. Before we begin our installation we'll first need to bring the bike rack out into our un-store position. We'll do this by taking the two arms and pulling it apart, with the bike rack like this we're ready to fit it to the vehicle. We'll place the bottom pad here on our license plate but depending on your application the bottom pad position will vary. Now what we're going to do is we're going to go ahead and remove these silver pins on the left and right hand side of the bike rack. This is going to allow us to adjust it to fit the size of our trunk. Then when we think we got it fit we'll go then and replace the pins to secure the arms into position. We're going to go ahead and position our clips on the upper and bottom portion of our trunk.

You can tell the upper clip from the lower clip as the upper clip is a little bit wider and it is also labeled "upper". We'll get the clip in position and then we'll just pull it snug and it's going to help us keep the bike rack in place. Then we'll just go ahead and move to the other side and repeat the same process. You don't want to fully tighten it down at this point we'll just going to snug down the straps, it's just going to help keep us the bike rack in place so that we can position the clips in the bottom part of the trunk. Now the top two straps in place we'll go ahead and position the bottom straps on the bottom part of the trunk. Now that we got all the straps in place now we can further tighten them down to secure the bike rack to the trunk.

With the bike rack secured we'll go ahead and secure the excess straps. Now that we've gone over some of the special features and shown you how to install it we'll go ahead and show you how to load up a bike. We'll first start off by undoing the cradle straps. Next we'll then simply place the bike into the frame cradles. Now with the bike in place we'll simply take the cradle straps around and secure it tightly around the frame and 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 driving down the road. That will complete today's review of the Saris Sentinel Truck Mounted Two Bike Rack Part No. SA1051.

Review from a similar Saris Sentinel in Trunk Bike Racks


This bike rack arrived in perfect condition. I fit my car perfectly. I like that it attaches in six places instead of four, as my last one did. My only concern is that the pieces that actually hold the bike on are plastic and the way they snap on are definitely not very secure. I will certainly be tying them on with something else. I haven't actually driven with the bike yet so time will tell how it travels 412442

Ask the Experts about this Saris Trunk Bike Racks

Do you have a question about this Trunk Bike Rack?


  • Saris Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Honda CRV
  • I checked with Saris and they do not list the Saris Solo part # SA102 as a fit for your 2014 Honda CRV. This is considered a trunk mounted bike rack, but like you noticed some of these styles of racks can fit on hatches or on the back of an SUV. For a similar Saris trunk rack that will fit your vehicle I would recommend the Saris Sentinel 2 bike rack part # SA1051. I attached a review video for you to check out as well. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes...

  • 2007 Audi A4 Convertible Bike Carrier Recommendations
  • For your 2007 Audi A4 convertible, there is not a trailer hitch available so we can't use a hitch mounted bike carrier option. For multiple bikes your options are very limited because it is a convertible. For a 2 bike rack, we have the Saris Sentinel 2 Bike Carrier - Fixed Arms - Trunk Mount # SA1051. For a 3 bike rack, we have the Saris Sentinel 3 Bike # SA1052. These bike racks are very basic and will require a cable lock like # CAB-10 and a bike adapter bar like # 64005 for any step...

  • Can Straps on Saris Sentinel 2 Bike Carrier be Removed
  • The straps that come on the Saris Sentinel 2 Bike Carrier # SA1051 are actually fixed to the cradles. Technically you can remove them by cutting them off if you needed to but aside from that you won't be able to remove them.

  • Trunk Bike Rack Recommendation for 2011 Honda CR-V
  • I spoke with my contact at Saris and he recommends going with the Sentinel 2 Bike Carrier, # SA1051, with Hatch Huggers, # SA3035, for your 2011 Honda CR-V. Although the Saris Bones 2 rack may fit on your CR-V, the reason it is not recommended for use on your vehicle is due the design. The two separate rubber feet, compared to the padded bar mounting style, put too much pressure on the bumper cover and could cause damage to your vehicle.

  • Arm Measurement for Saris Sentinel 2 Bike Rack on 2006 Honda Accord 4 Door
  • The Saris Sentinel 2 Bike Carrier - Fixed Arms - Trunk Mount # SA1051 is a confirmed fit for the 2006 Honda Accord. The distance between the two arms is about 11 inches to the cradles. The bars are 13-1/4 inches on center. This is rated for 35 lbs per bike so you will need to consider the weight rating if you will be using it for this other purpose.

  • How to Stabilize Bikes on the Saris Sentinel 2 Bike Carrier Part # SA1051
  • The Anchor Straps part # SA2047 will more than likely work for you but the Saris Bike Wheel and Handlebar Stabilizer Straps part # SA3033 are actually designed specially for helping to stabilize the bikes on your Saris Sentinel 2 Bike Carrier part # SA1051 and is what I recommend you use. I have attached a review video that shows the straps in action for you.

  • 2009 Audi A4 Convertible Bike Rack Recommendation
  • The only solution I have for your 2009 Audi A4 convertible to carry bikes is to use the Saris Sentinel part # SA1051 which is a confirmed fit. None of the trailer hitches we offer will fit the convertible models. I attached a review video for the trunk rack for you to check out. 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 on your...

  • 2008 Audi A4 Cabriolet Bike Rack Recommendation
  • For 2008 Audi A4 Cabriolet (convertible), I do have a bike rack option I can recommend, but not a hitch option as none of the hitch manufacturers we carry have a fit for the convertibles. Instead you would want the Saris Sentinel part # SA1051 which is a confirmed fit.

  • Recommended Trunk Mounted Bike Rack for 2018 Subaru Impreza Hatchback
  • For your 2018 Subaru Impreza, I recommend the Yakima FullBack 2 Bike Rack # Y02634. This trunk-mounted rack is confirmed to fit your 5 door hatchback, whether or not it has the factory rear spoiler. This is a great carrier that will allow you to transport your 2 bikes as long as they are each under 35 pounds. The adjustable arms will help to keep the bikes level and the SuperCrush anti-sway cradles with ratcheting ZipStrip straps will hold the bikes securely by their frames at 3 different...

  • How Long are the Straps on the Saris Sentinel Trunk Mount Bike Rack
  • The straps on the Saris Sentinel 2 Bike Carrier # SA1051 that hold the rack to the vehicle are adjustable. They have to be in order to fit the most vehicles and to get them tight enough to secure the rack to the vehicle. Luckily Saris has done the leg work for us so the strap length is not really relevant since they have already determined which vehicles the rack will fit but they are approximately 80 inches long. If you are talking about the straps that hold the bikes to the rack then...

  • Trunk Mounted Wheelchair Rack for a 2012 Ford Mustang GT Convertible
  • A manual chair like yours technically could fit onto a trunk bike rack like the Saris Sentinel, part # SA1051, but I don't recommend that this is a direct solution. The wheel will hang slightly lower than it really should safely and potentially scrape on the ground and could damage the vehicle or the wheelchair itself. I do however recommend adding a traditional cargo carrier to the vehicle. This will provide both a stable, safe location for the wheelchair as well as expandability for...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 2016 Hyundai Sonata to Carry 2 Bikes
  • We do carry a couple of trunk mount bike racks that fit your 2016 Hyundai Sonata. The Saris Sentinel # SA1051 fits as long as you add Hatch Huggers # SA3035. Rather than a trunk mount bike rack, I recommend a trailer hitch and a hitch mount bike rack. If you do not already have a trailer hitch on your Sonata, I recommend the Draw-Tite Class I Sport Frame Receiver Hitch # 24965. This Class I hitch will provide a 1-1/4 inch receiver that will work great with Class I compatible bike...

  • Recommended Yakima Bike Rack for a 2019 Ford Escape
  • I do have a trunk bike rack that will fit your 2019 Ford Escape but unfortunately when I reached out to my contact at Yakima she said that the LittleJoe # Y02617 will not fit your vehicle. If you don't have the Titanium Escape then the closest bike rack we have to the LittleJoe, when it comes to price and functionality, is the Saris Sentinel # SA1051. Since both of those bike racks are entry-level bike racks I do recommend going with the Yakima HangOut # Y02637 instead. This comes...

  • Will a Saris Trunk Mount Bike Rack Fit a 2018 Kia Sedona
  • The Saris Bones trunk mount bike rack # SA805BL is not a fit for the 2018 Kia Sedona. But Saris does list the Sentinel # SA1051 for 2 bikes or # SA1052 for 3 bikes as a fit for your van. It is recommended to either use Hatch Huggers # SA3035 in place of the lower straps OR to close the standard hooks inside of the rear hatch when mounting the bike rack. If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar that goes straight across (like a typical men's bike would) then...

  • Saris Bones 2 vs Saris Sentinel 2 for Honda Civic 2011 or 2012
  • The Saris Bones bike rack part # SA805BL that you referenced is the top of the line trunk mounted bike rack that Saris makes. The Saris Sentinel part # SA1051 that you referenced is the economical option that Saris offers. Either would work very well and are confirmed to fit your vehicles, but the Bones offers a little more flexibility in how it can mount and is designed to fit better on vehicles with spoilers. The arms of the Bones are adjustable and can let you set them so that your...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 2019 BMW GT 330i
  • According to Saris, none of their trunk mount racks would be a fit for your vehicle. However, Yakima offers a solution, the HalfBack, part # Y02636. Because you have a brand-new vehicle, I'd personally be a little hesitant to use a trunk mount rack. Any time a piece of equipment is in direct contact with the painted surface of a vehicle, there's a slight possibility that the vehicle could be scratched. This risk can be minimized by carefully observing the installation instructions and abiding...

  • Trunk Mounted Bike Rack for 2018 Mercedes Benz SLC43 AMG
  • There may be a way for you to carry your bikes on your 2018 Mercedes Benz SLC43 AMG, but there are no hitches that fit this vehicle. Instead, your best option is a trunk-mounted rack, and the one I recommend checking out is the Saris Sentinel 2 Bike Carrier # SA1051.The reason I said there "may" be a way for you to carry your bikes is because like all trunk-mounted racks the Sentinel has a 35 lb per bike weight capacity and it is possible your bikes may weigh more. Additionally, please...

  • Economically Priced Trunk Mounted Bike Rack for a 2009 Chrysler PT Cruiser
  • Saris does list the Solo 1 part # SA102 as a fit for your 2009 Chrysler PT Cruiser, but I would not recommend that rack. Instead the Saris Sentinel part # SA1051 is a similar priced rack that would fit better. The arms of this rack adjustable to better fit the rear of your vehicle. 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 on...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 2014 VW Beetle Convertible
  • Since there are not trunk mounted bike racks that fit a 2014 Volkwagen Beetle convertible you'd have to look into a hitch mounted option. For that you'd need to start with a hitch like the Draw Tite part # 24922 which is a confirmed fit. For a bike rack I really like the Saris Freedom Superclamp part # SA4025F. This is a platform bike rack that only touches the bike at the tires and only weighs 30 lbs. The biggest drawback to platform bike racks has always been the weight of them,...

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2008 Ford Mustang GT Convertible
  • Saris does have some trunk mount bike racks that will fit your 2008 Ford Mustang GT convertible but # SA102 is not one of the models listed as a fit. I recommend the Bones, # SA805BL, which will also allow you to carry the bike(s) more level compared to the Solo which does not have independently adjustable arms. For something that will fit and that is closer in price to the Solo I recommend the Sentinel # SA1051. I have linked videos on both of these bike racks for you.

  • Economical Trunk Mount Bike Rack Options for a 2014 Ford Focus Hatchback
  • We have several different trunk mount bike racks that have been confirmed to fit your 2014 Ford Focus Hatchback including the Saris Sentinel # SA1051. I have attached a link to all of the bike racks that will work for you. The Sentinel is a great option since it's confimed to fit on your Focus and is easier to install than most trunk mount racks. It is also economically priced compared to our other hitch mount bike racks, mainly because it does not come with many of the additional features...

  • I checked with Saris and the Sentinel trunk mount bike rack # SA1051 is listed as a fit for your 2014 Chevy Cruze. I have included a link to a video review of this bike rack for you. If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar that goes straight across (like a typical men's bike would) then I recommend using bike adapter bar # 64005. This will allow you to carry those bikes more level and will provide better ground clearance. I have to use these adapters and without...

  • Recommended Trunk-Mount Bike Carrier For 2013 Toyota RAV4
  • We do carry several trunk-mount bike racks that are designed to fit your 2013 RAV4. I recommend the Thule Raceway Pro, part # TH9001PRO. This bike rack features four coated steel cables to attach to the vehicle instead of six straps you typically see with trunk mount racks. The carrier features anti-sway cradles which helps keep bikes from banging together and it securely holds the bikes at 3 points. This carrier folds flat when not in use for easy storage.

  • How to Carry Two E-Bikes with 2009 Ford Mustang
  • I can help you find a way to carry a pair of 60 lb E-Bikes with your 2009 Ford Mustang, though it will require a trailer hitch and hitch-mounted bike rack. Trunk-mounted bike racks such as the Saris Sentinel 2 Bike Carrier # SA1051 you referenced do not have the weight capacity for 60 lb bikes, they actually max out at 35 lbs. For your 2009 Mustang the Draw-Tite Sportframe Trailer Hitch # 24747 will work great as a way to carry your bike rack. Since this is a Class I hitch with a 1-1/4...
