Review of the Swagman Fork Down Roof Bike Rack on a 2011 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen


Today on our 2011 Volkswagen Jetta Sportwagen, we'll be test fitting the Swagman Fork Down roof-mounted bike rack, part number S64710. With the Thule AeroBlade edge roof rack system assembled to our vehicle, we'll begin our test fit by placing the Swagman Fork Down directly onto our load bars. Here at the front, we'll want to take our U bolts, bring them around the underside of our load bar, and back up through the platform. Once we have it in place, we can secure it there and tighten it down with the wing nuts. We'll do this for both sides of the front platform. We'll move to the rear and take our U bolt and drop it through the top of the carrier, making sure it goes around our load bar, and then we can feed it through our bracket and tighten in place with our wing nuts.

Once we have everything tight, our Swagman Fork Down should be secure to our roof rack. We can go ahead and undo the rear wheel strap and make sure the skewer at the front is loose. We'll grab our bike, place it onto our rack, and secure it first by tightening the skewer. Then we'll move to the rear and tighten down our wheel strap. Now that our bike's all loaded up, we're ready to go.

That completes today's test fit of the Swagman Fork Down, part number S64710, on our 2011 Volkswagen Jetta Sportwagen.
