Video Transcript for Saris Trunk Bike Racks SA3035 Review

Speaker 1: Today we'll be reviewing part number SA3035. These are the Hatch Huggers from Saris for the Saris Trunk Mountain bike racks. They are going to replace the Saris Bones bike rack standard top straps for vehicles requiring a more custom. The anchor is racked by threaded through the gap between your hatchback's trunk and roof. These are made in the USA and come with a limited lifetime warranty. I did undo one of these and measured them.

We have about 74 inches of just strap not including the bumper. So, from right here all the way to the end of our strap that's rolled we have about 74 inches. That's just a little bit over six foot. In order to install these you would first need to remove the S-hook straps from the buckles that are currently on the Trunk Mountain bike rack. Then you can open your vehicle trunk or hatch and insert the end of the hatch hugger strap between the hatch and vehicle's body.

You want to make sure that there's no interference when the hatch and trunk is closed. Then you can freely close your hatch or trunk. You'll take the end of the strap and through the hatch hugger strap through the carrier buckle that are attached to your trunk mountain bike rack and you want to be sure to keep the straps in line with the rear legs. This will help prevent your carrier from shifting. Once you have all that in place you can continue mounting the carrier as instructed in your owner's manual as you are used to.

Now on the instructions that come with these hatch huggers. We have a vehicle compatibility chart. That'll show you with what vehicles these straps are compatible with and that completes today's review of the Saris Hatch Huggers for the Saris Trunk Mountain bike racks, part number SA3035. .

My husband and I installed the bike rack yesterday and took it up to the bike trail 25 miles from home today. The hatch huggers were required for the side straps on my 2020 Honda Pilot. It required two people to hold the straps above the tail lights while the back hatch automatically closes. (One could possibly use tape to temporarily hold them in place.) The hatch huggers info says only 2 bikes with a total of 75#’s are useable with this strap. I would have appreciated knowing that info before buying the 3 bike rack. We also used bungee cords to prevent the bike tires from moving during travel. The rack & straps worked great!! The rack was in the process of being removed when I remembered to take the picture so this is not the fully attached rack shown. With the current pandemic buying a rack & hatch huggers straps from one vendor was not possible. I was very happy that Etrailer.com was able to provide the needed hatch huggers!!

I have not had a chance to try the “Hatch Huggers” on the open road, but there is no doubt in my mind that they will add stability to the Bones 2 rack mounted on my Honda HR-V. I have found that a magnet is a must in positioning the straps before closing the hatch.

This item allows me to use my saris bike rack but it takes time to loop it over the back of the car for use and then for dismounting the rack after use. I use it on a Lexus NX300.

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.

Very easy to use and works great. However, because of the clearance between my hatch/trunk I have to remove the huggers from the bike carrier before or after using the bike carrier. The clearance on my BMW 430i Grand Coups does not have enough room to install from the outside.

Ask the Experts about this Saris Accessories and Parts

  • Why Are Hatch Huggers Needed for Saris Bones on Certain Vehicles
    The Hatch Huggers # SA3035 are needed to replace both the top and side hooks of the Saris Bones # SA805BL on your Toyota Prius. They are needed at the top to protect the glass on your Prius that's above the hatch. Then for the side attachments there's simply not a lot of room on your vehicle for the standard hooks to fit so the Hatch Huggers are needed to provide an alternative connection point. I reached out to my contact at Saris regarding the 2-bike limit and he said that this has...

  • Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2015 GLA 250
    We have a trunk mounted bike rack that has been confirmed to fit your 2015 Mercedes GLA that has a spoiler, but the Saris Bones that you referenced is not the correct one. Instead you would want the Hollywood Racks Over the Top part # HRF2 as it has been confirmed to fit you vehicle. I attached a review video for you to check out as 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...

  • Best Trunk Mounted Bike Rack for a 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA-250
    The Hatch Huggers for Saris Trunk Mount Bike Racks part # SA3035 that you referenced are an alternative for the metal coated hooks that are included with most Saris trunk mount bike racks. They are used when the hooks would be attached to a glass or plastic surface to prevent damaged. The problem you have with your 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA-250 is that the straps would create too much downward pressure on the spoiler which would in turn cause damage. Therefore, the Hatch Huggers nor will any...

  • How to Install Hatch Huggers on a Hatchback 2017 Kia Soul
    I reached out to Saris to see how they install Hatch Huggers, part # SA3035 They recommend the following steps: 1.) Put the Hatch Huggers inside the rear door with the straps vertical. 2.) Close the rear hatch. 3.) Shimmy the straps up to the side of the hatch near the install location. 4.) Install the Saris Bones rack per normal instructions, skipping the side straps. 5.) Feed the Hatch Hugger Straps into the side quick release mechanisms.

  • Are Hatch Huggers Needed to Install Saris Porter Trunk Rack on 2016 Hyundai Veloster
    We checked with Saris and the Hatch Huggers part # SA3035 are required when attaching the Saris Porter 2 bike rack # SA312B to your 2016 Hyundai Veloster. We try to make tech tips like this easy to see and find but we can certainly understand how it would be possible to miss that requirement. I attached a picture that shows where we list that requirement. This picture came from the fitguide page for the trunk racks for the 2016 Veloster. It's hard to put flags in our system in place...

  • Why are the Hatch Huggers Required for the Saris Bike Porter 2 Bike Rack on a 2016 Hyundai Veloster
    The Hatch Huggers for Saris Trunk Mount Bike Racks part # SA3035 are required when using the Saris Bike Porter 2 Bike Rack part SA312B on your 2016 Hyundai Veloster because it has a glass hinge line and the hooks included with the Porter 2 could potentially cause damage to the glass. The Hatch Huggers are made of foam so you will not need to worry about damage to your glass hinge. I have attached a review video of the Hatch Huggers to give you a better ideal of how they work.

    The only trunk mount rack that we can safely recommend will fit your 2013 Toyota Sienna is the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 Bike Carrier # HRF2. This is the only rack that was adequately tested on your vehicle and was determined to fit your vehicle. I would not recommend you use a Saris Bones 3 part # SA801 as Saris does not recommend it.

  • Can Rear Hatch on 2014 Honda CR-V Be Opened with Saris Bones Bike Rack Attached
    The Saris Bones 2 Bike Carrier # SA805BL that you referenced is a really nice carrier that's confirmed to fit your 2014 Honda CR-V, however even with the bikes unloaded you won't be able to open the rear hatch without completely removing the rack. This is because the upper straps are going to clip around the top seam where the roof meets the hatch, and opening the rear will cause this connection to loosen up and reduce the tension on the carrier, likely causing it to move around and possibly...

  • What 3-Bike Trunk Rack Will Fit a 2020 Subaru Forester?
    The Forester went through a generation change after 2018, so Thule has not yet confirmed a fit for their trunk bike racks yet on the new generation. I have two other options I can recommend for you. The first is the Saris Bones EX 3 # SA803. I'm a big fan of their arched design that allows it to fit on a larger variety of vehicles. For your trunk, you'd need to use the # SA3035 hatch straps instead of the included side hooks. My second recommendation is the Yakima HalfBack 3 Bike...

There is only one option for trunk mounted bike racks for your 200t and that is the Saris Bones EX 3 # SA803 . Saris is the pioneer of trunk mounted bike racks in this country and they make some of the most high quality trunk mounted racks on the market- the Bones EX 3 is no exception.

    The Saris Bones 2 Bike Carrier part # SA805BL is a better choice for your 2017 Toyota Highlander than the Yakima HangOut 2 Bike Rack part # Y02637 because the straps that are used to secure the bikes are easier to use (ease of use), the Hatch Huggers have less potential to cause damage to the vehicle (peace of mind), and the three independent points of contact will be more stable (stability).

    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.
