Review of the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top Trunk Bike Racks on a 2016 Ford Expedition

Today on our 2016 Ford Expedition we're doing a test fit of the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 Bike Carrier, trunk mount, part number is HRF2. Now we have a bike on our rack and we have our rack hooked to our vehicle. I'm just going to show you a few features. Now how we have our bike connected to our bike rack itself, we have a total of three straps, two up top and then one on the side. The one on the side we call an anti-sway strap. That's going to keep the bike from swaying so it won't damage your car or your other bike. So go ahead and take the two off the top first.

Then we're going to take off the one on the side, remove our bike, set it off to the side, and then it's always a good idea to replace your straps so you don't lose them or damage them. Now let's take one measurement just to show you overall distance, and I'm looking right at 26 and a half inches. Now the cradle arms do come down so what we want to do is, these two knobs here, you're going to have to unloosen them with a knob there. I'm going to go down, you can go down or go up. You see that has the teeth so it's pretty much keeping it locked in, just need to get it to where you need it to go. There we go.

So we're going to tighten it all back up. Now we're going to take one more measurement. So now, distance we're looking at twelve and a half inches. Now how we have it connected to our vehicle itself, we have a total of six individual straps with a hook on it with a rubber coating so it doesn't damage your vehicle. So you have the two up top, you're going to have two to the side here and there, and then we're going to have two underneath. Now each one of them has its own Cam Lever, it's going to tighten it and loosen it.

You have a Cam Lever here, you have one there, and you have one down there and on the other side it's actually the same. Now you have the pads that are going to protect your window and your vehicle. You have two up here, we have two underneath the Ford sign, and we have two underneath our door handle here. Now the one thing that I have to always say, you can't use your rear wiper when you have your bike rack on. That's going to complete our look at the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2-Bike Carrier, trunk mount, part number HRF2 on today's 2016 Ford Expedition. Here it is on our test course. First is the inaudible 00:02:59 area, which simulates side to side action like turning the corners or evasion maneuvers.

Next are the alternate speed bumps which show you the twisting action like hitting a pot hole, road debris, or hitting a curb. Finally we are at the solid speed bumps which show you up and down action to simulate a parking garage or coming out of your driveway. .
