    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent - strong and sturdy I bought this tow bar bike rack having read the good reviews, and it has not disappointed. I paid extra for the installation so I could watch how it was done. Staff was knowledgeable and provided an efficient service, they installed the pre-ordered number plates and supplied the correct power adapter to fit my tow bar and tested the lights. You will need to practise putting on the four bikes, heaviest first, alternate the handlebar direction first to the left, then right etc. so that the chain guards aren't touching. We also bought a pack of long cable ties, securing each bicycle to the two centre frames to ensure there is no movement. The rack is rather heavy to lift, but once secured, it is strong and sturdy. With practice, it takes my husband about 10 minutes to put the rack on and load all the bikes, and much easier with two people. I didn't want one with a tilt function, so once the bicycles are loaded you can't open the car boot, but that's not a problem for us as we can fold the rear seats down to access our luggage. We stayed in the The New Forest for a week, taking the rack on and off about 5 times with no problems. It gave us the freedom to explore different cycle routes in Hampshire and Dorset without having to navigate main roads with our children.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dave The ball mounting to tow bar is a little fiddly to fit and to tighten sufficiently to stop movement but once tight works ok. Not able to tip rack to allow access to boot like some other racks but price reflects functionality I guess. Overall appearance makes it look cheap but all engineering is fit for purpose and 4 bikes are easy to mount although you do need to alternate directions to get them to fit without interference. Not sure about longevity as we have only used once so far. Storage is challenging if you don't have space, the unit is heavy and doesn't fold other than the 2 central bike supports but this is no different with premium brands used previously.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from tow-bar mounted bike rack I find the 3 bike rack excellent and am well pleased with it. The tilt mechinism is good and easy to implement. It's very solid and safe. A tad heavy maybe but that is to be expected. Just one gripe. I haven't been able to source the security lock that goes over the locking bolt. This means that I have to take it off and put it into the boot as it could easily be stolen. Any idea where I can get the security bolt? W.U. Perthshire.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Towbar fitting is ridiculous Bought this in the Galway store as it appears to be the only 4 bike towbar mounted carrier on the market. I had previously used a 3 bike Thule carrier and was amazed that the halfords one was allowed to market with the towbar fitting that it has, the Thule is a far superior product and there is not a hope that my partner could fit this bike rack on her own. No way would I have bought this if I had seen it assembled, the price of not doing your research!!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from All in all not that bad. Does the job all 4 bikes were safe and secure, but in the description of this product it said it has a tilting function to access the boot. This is just flat out untrue. Once the rack was secured to the tow bar it doesn't move at all and I had to remove the bike closest the boot to access it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic peace of kit Had mine for over a year now and have had no problems with it . I often carry 4 bikes ranging from a 29er mounting bike to a bmx and find thay fit on with minimal effort . It's a solid reliable peace of kit . I found that a socket set works better than the spanner provided and is a lot faster . Don't get me wrong it has its down sides , it has no tilt function and when u loads the bikes on and the kids bring out there helmets u can't open the boot , but pull the seat down and jobs a gooden . It is also big and heavy so bear that in mind . But all in all if u want a cheap, well built , reliable bike rack then look no further On anouther note I have always found the staff helpful and ready to answer any questions and if u have a problem talk to them thay will help u

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fiddly The wheel straps go into cam buckle clips (8 in total) that are a real fiddle especially in poor light (i.e. at the end of a ride when you're tired and cold). It's heavy. The tilt mechanism is very basic and un-sprung. One of the 'u' shaped wheel slots has to be taken off to mount and this does not come off very easily - you will need to lubricate and use a hammer. My view is but cheap - buy twice - I'm going to ebau and get a Thule.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, sturdy, and does the job Excellent product. Took me about half an hour to assemble initially. Then takes 1 minute to attach and detach from the towbar, and holds 4 bikes comfortably. Only comment, don't lose the spanner! You need a spanner to secure it on the towbar
