Saris Sentinel 3 Bike Rear Cycle Carrier is rated out of 5 by 36.Rated 1 out of 5 by JP71 from Cheap strap fastenings I was initially impressed with this product when I removed it from its box - it was extremely light and simple to adjust. When I came to mount the carrier on the boot, I noticed that the clips on the straps were extremely basic and did not look like they would stay tight, however I followed the instructions and the carrier did appear to be firmly fastened to the boot. I then loaded on three bicycles relatively easy and then set off. After about 500 yards, I have to go over a speed bump which I did more carefully than normal, however there was a thud from the back of the car. I immediately pulled to the side of the road and found the cycle carrier hanging off the boot, the straps having significantly loosened. The bikes were unloaded and taken home and the cycle carrier removed and later taken back to Halfords for a refund. My previous bike carrier from a different manufacturer had significantly better tightening clips than the Saris Sentinel, and in my opinion Saris has used extremely cheap parts which actually made the carrier unfit for purpose.Date published: 2016-09-05Rated 4 out of 5 by golfcab2016 from quick and easy a great bike rack for my 2014 golf cab. Staff were great despite not having knowledge of this model as it is 'online only. my car was not listed for this, but was not on the forbidden list either. it fits great I have put it on myself since, the only comment is I have to turn off the reversing sensors once bikes are loaded upDate published: 2016-05-03Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous from Proceed with caution We installed this bike rack pretty securely on the back of our Toyota Matrix. Recently, I noticed that the straps start to come loose at highway speeds - I just had to tighten them down. To really work well, this needs something more secure than the over-under strap pieces. Also, I would prefer that the plastic pieces that receive the bike frame have a much larger diameter, to accommodate different sizes of bikes.Date published: 2015-09-13Rated 3 out of 5 by mallqw from saris sentinel 3 bike carrier Real easy to fit with a sturdy feel to it used once so far don't feel confident with the standard plastic fasteners which fasten around the bike frame to hold the bikes to the rack we had to purchase extra straps.Date published: 2015-07-01Rated 5 out of 5 by LouMoo from Easy to use Having read reviews about this style of carrier I am happy to have purchased the mid-priced rack. It fit together quite simply and the instructions were clear. Some people commented about possible scratches to the car but I think this is only a risk for significant usage as the metal clips for tying onto the boot are coated. The best thing about this rack is that it fit my Golf Convertible despite most products of this type saying they're not suitable. My only problem with the rack was that the prongs for putting the bikes on are a little far apart and in this style quite high up. I couldn't lift my bikes onto it properly (as I have back trouble) as I couldn't lift it high enough at the correct angle (which the instructions don't explain), and cobbled it together but it still worked safely. My husband proved that with more power it is possible to put the bikes on much more safely as they're intended There is also no instruction for side attachments and we ended up not using them though I'm sure they're better for longer journeys than I didDate published: 2015-06-29Rated 5 out of 5 by Jimbo001 from Good value - does the job Used this for my kids 2 bikes doing 100 mile trip, very secure and easy to set up.
