Perfect fit for my 2004 Ford Escape. Quick and easy to install too. I did it on my lunch hour at work with plenty of time to spare.I was a bit nervous since the first use was for a 700 miles trip, but it worked perfectly to hold my Trek Hybrid bike (with disc brakes) safely up on the roof. Could not tell, from within the car, that the bike was up there (no wind noise, vibration, etc).Getting the bike up on the roof is less funny (the Escape is pretty tall) but it's not related to the product.Very happy with my purchase, and awesome experience with backcountry.com so far.Highly recommended.
Fits well on factory racks
It fits very well on my 2009 Impreza factory rack. Very little wiggle, and more solid than the upright fork systems that I'm just not a big fan of.Easy to use, and lockable.The only thing I'm not a big fan of is the rear sliding tray moves too easily (as in it slides back and forth when driving without a bike) and would be easy to steal, if anyone was so inclined.
