The Thule 917xtr and 916xtr T2 platform style bike hitch rack, for 1 ¼” or 2" hitches respectively, will securely carry bikes in roof top style trays that are mounted to a base platform. Carried in trays, all bikes are at the same height above the ground and contact between bikes during transit is eliminated. Bikes are supported and secured into the wheel trays by a tire hook that ratchets along a pivoting arm and locks down onto the front tire directly in front of the fork, never contacting the frame. Loading is simply a matter of placing the bike into the wheel trays, positioning the pivot arm so that the hook is above the front wheel, and ratcheting it down until snug onto the front tire. Finally, the rear wheel strap is secured and the bike is loaded. To stymie bike thieves, each arm features a retractable locking cable and the included Thule STL2 Snug-Tite receiver Lock locks the T2 itself into the receiver hitch. The Thule T2 bike rack’s tire hold design accommodates virtually all styles and sizes of bikes. The handy HitchSwitch lever enables the platform to be tilted down while the bikes are loaded for hatch door access and to be folded up and out of the way when not in use. Please note: The 917XTR T2 is not compatible with the 918XTR 2 Bike Add-On.
