  • Thule 9403 3 Bike Tow Bar Carrier

    The Thule 9403 3 Bike Tow Bar Carrier is a handy rear mounted Cycle Carrier with a tilt function, which means you can access your boot even when the bikes are mounted - clever! This compact bike carrier comes with a tow bar coupling which allows for safe and rapid mounting, meaning no adjustment is needed, and it can carry a maximum of 3 bikes with a max load capacity of 45kg.

  • Thule 9403 3 Bike Tow Bar Carrier is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 179.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent value. I tell you what, for £150 quid I don't think you will get a better towbar mounted rack, from anywhere. The only down side I can see is that the upright, in the middle of the rack, could do with being able to be locked in place to enable a more secure bike fit. There are more than enough straps to secure two bikes and the adjustability to suit different bike sizes is very good. Do yourself a favour if you buy this by also buying the lock to secure the rack to your towbar( it's only £15 ).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong and reliable A good solid piece of equipment that easily takes three bikes. Fitting on the tow bar is quite easy to do and provides a firm base for cycles. When driving, there is slight movement of the bikes, but all are held in place by the wheel supports and the straps provided. Building it up is OK as long as you take it step by step and are methodical,

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bit of kit Excellent build quality and easy to fit to your vehicle. I would highly recommend paying Halfords to build the carrier and at £25 this service seemed like a bargain. If not, put aside 2 hours to assemble. I also purchased a rachet spanner to enable a speedy fit to my tow bar as spanner provided was cumbersome and an adapter for the light fitting as my Porsche adapter didn't fit socket provided. All in all amazing value for money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thule 3bike tow bar carrier Reserved this product online, collected in store, all good. What can I say? Does exactly what it's supposed to do. Good quality product, well made. Fits to the tow bar in seconds, 3 mountain bikes safely attached using supplied straps, I used a few cable ties as well just to stop any wobbling about. Didn't use the tilt feature so can't comment on that. Comes with light board which is great, only negative is no brake light connection just tail light and indicators, not a massive issue as you can still see brake lights on our car. Used it locally plus a 340 mile round trip, hasn't budged an inch. Very pleased, so far so good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Product The instructions were clear and I managed to put the rack together by myself. It may be easier with a second person. I would advise buying your number plate before putting it together as it saves a little bit of tinkering later on. The finished product is easy to attach to your tow bar with one simple fixing that can be tightened well with the tool that comes in the box. I have only had 2 bikes on it so far, but the straps contained in the kit keep them very secure. We have had to buy a lock to attach through the carrier and onto the car as the fixing is not lockable. Compared to other products this is very good value and THULE seem to make very good quality products. Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality basic tow bar cycle rack The rack is basic - the more expensive ones have quick attach systems and integrated locks. However it is a quality build, not too heavy (the wife can carry and put it on her car). Building was easy from the kit of parts. Fitting to the car involves a big spanner to tighten it up. and tilting is a bit manual and messy. You will need a big cable lock to lock the bikes to the tow ball. Do you need to pay the extra £100 for quick fitting, dubious integrated locks and a quick tilt mechanism? For me cheap and basic works.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Thule quality This is a very capable little bike rack. The quality of Thule products never ceases to amaze me. For the price, this is excellent. I borrowed a friends for a while and then decided to purchase my own. It's simple to use and I found it easy to put together. Do t be put off by the reviews of being difficult to put together, it even comes with all the tools you need!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy to fit and well made The bike rack is fantastic. We fitted just two bikes to it and when we arrived to do our ride we removed it from the tow bar and stowed it in the back of our Freelander. (we didn't buy the lock but may add that at a later date) Easy and safe.
