Review of the Swagman Fork Down Roof Bike Rack on a 2014 Ford Escape

Today on our 2014 Ford Escape we'll be test fitting the Swagman Fork Down Roof Mounted Bike Rack, Part #S64710. With the Thule Rapid Reverse Roof Rack system on our vehicle, we'll begin our test fit by placing our bike rack directly onto our load bars. Here at the front platform we'll take a u-bolt and bring it around on the underside of our front load bar. We'll fit the bolts up through the front platform and we'll secure it by tightening down two wing nuts. We're going to move to the other side of our front platform and repeat this process. Here at the rear we'll drop our u-bolt through the top of our bike rack making sure that we have a bolt on each side of our rear load bar. Then we'll install our black metal clamp making sure that the bolts go through our clamp. And we'll secure it by installing two wing nuts. With the front and rear secure, we can go ahead and undo the rear wheel strap and make sure our skewer at the front is loose. We'll grab our bike and place it onto our bike rack dropping our front forks down onto our skewer. We'll secure the bike first by tightening our skewer, and then move to the rear and tighten with the wheel strap. With our bike all loaded up, that'll complete today's test fit of the Swagman Fork Down Roof Mounted Bike Rack, Part #S64710 on our 2014 Ford Escape. .
