Which Bike Rack Will Allow Trunk Access On My 2015 Subaru Crosstrek?

Question:

Hello Can you tell me if the Thule Helium Pro is “simple” to put together? I had my Subaru in for a hut h and rack last week and their product “specialist” could not figure out the hit h rack they sell and suggest, its also a Thule. I am looking for simple, lock on hit h and for bike, down for rear access to my Crosstrek. Thanks

Overall, theThule Helium Pro 2 Bike Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting - Aluminum # TH9042PRO is pretty easy to put together and install on your 2015 Subaru Crosstrek. I have attached a photo that shows what it looks like when it gets shipped to you; there are only a few things you have to put together. I have attached a photo from the instructions that shows the majority of what you need to do; you can also look at the product listing page and find a few short videos in the photo section that show the rubber straps being installed. Detailed installation instructions are included with the purchase.

The Thule Helium Pro 2 is a great bike rack. It can be tilted back to gain access to the trunk on your vehicle. I have attached a demonstration video which shows the trunk being opened on a Subaru Crosstrek with the bike rack installed. There are locks to secure your bike to the carrier, and secure the carrier to the hitch receiver.
