First of all, it has to be bolted to your hitch. You can't use a standard hitch pin to mount it to your vehicle, which would make installing and removing it much easier. They claim the bolt will keep it from wobbling. Yeah right! Maybe it doesn't wobble much at the hitch, but the rest of it wobbles like crazy. The bike can be moved a good 4 inches in all directions. I just drove around the block and my bike looked like a bobble head doll bouncing around back there. The first time I put my bike on it, I stripped the locking mechanism on one of the telescoping arms because it's just cheap plastic. Also, the first time I folded it up, I snapped off one of the clamps on the vertical arm that attaches to the bike frame. Cheap hardware. I wouldn't trust the straps that come with this thing to hold my bike while cruising down the freeway. Will definitely need to supplement them with something more substantial. Do yourself a favor and buy something else.
