The trunk bike rack mounts to the rear hatch or trunk of a SUV or van to transport bicycles without using the vehicle hitch. There are 2 models of the trunk bike rack available: the BC-6315-2Q that holds 1-2 bikes and has a weight capacity of 70 lbs or the BC-6315-3Q that carries 1-3 bikes and has a capacity of 100 lbs. A vehicle rest support and tire well platform are each designed to pivot 360° enabling the bike racks to mount to a variety of trunk and hatch shapes while maintaining stability. Key benefits to these trunk bike racks include dual sliding tire wells that extend outward for optimal bicycle support, dual adjustable length bike frame clamps that also lock to deter theft, and an integrated 6-point tie-down system with 4-1/2 ft. long hatch / trunk straps. Trunk mounted bike racks are great for simultaneous towing because the rack holds the bikes high enough to clear the hitch. The BC-6315-2Q and BC-6315-3Q bike racks are made with a heavy duty steel tube framework with a black powder coat finish. Includes all necessary hardware for installation.
We have used our Apex three bike trunk rack four times now on our 2013 Subaru Forester. Each time we traveled over 800 miles at freeway speeds up to 85 mph through heat, cold, hail, and pouring rain. the rack has never caused a single problem. We have had the rack loaded with three bikes and have had no loss in tension from the strap buckles. The rack is easily adjustable to keep the rack centered on the car and to keep all the bikes centered. There has been no damage at all to the rear bumper or hatch. The upper clips fit onto the ONE roof rack rails and give an added measure of security. In seconds I can loosen the straps and lift the entire rack off the rear of the car, bikes and all, with only one assistant. It can just as easily be put back on. I was skeptical about a trunk type rack but now I'm sold! Thanks for a well designed, manufactured, and packaged product.
At first, I wasnt sure because you do have to lift the bike up high to place in the wheel platforms. But I love it!! Once I became use to it and bungied the front tire, it was easy to do. Rack is a bit heavy but very sturdy and bike is totally secure on it.
The carrier-BC-6315 2Q is well made and easy to assemble. Attached to Toyota Highlander without a problem. The tie down system is secure and the sliding tire wells accommodate both our bikes witch are different sizes. Have not had any problems yet when driving-mainly just city driving.
I am overall very happy with this rack so far. The tubing is very heavy duty and feels as if it should hold up well. Assembly was easy and it seems to have a well engineered point s of hold down.
One reason I selected this brand was a comment of it being heavy. True it is strong, thick steel tubing, not at all light weight, as you often expect from overseas. Assembly was easy and with a helper to assist with lifting it onto the back of our Toyota sienna van, it surely is stable. Accommodates our bikes very well, three bikes required some maneuvering but it is very possible. Overall satisfied with this model (BC-6315-3Q).
I bought this as a Mothers Day gift for myself from my four child so that we could all go bike riding together.One of the best family time investment I've made. I was able to build it myself with out and probems, easy to read instructions. It was also very easy to attach it to my van. While driving with 3 bikes on the bike rack I felt safe that it was not going to fall off. It attaches to the van very tightly. Because I bought this bike rack me and my family where able to spend good quality time together on Mothers Day.
The unit installed easy enough and performed as would be expected. What was a nice surprise is that the unit was able to support my over sized 29 inch cruiser even with the erratic curves of the frame.
