Weld broke, bikes fell offReview by Christina

I had the rockymounts split rail 2 bike rack with a single add-on for a total of 3 bikes. I love the concept of this design, but it needs modifications. I would NOT recommend this hitch rack due to safety concerns. With a little redesign, this could be a great rack.

It was installed on my 2015 CRV with a Draw-Tite class III hitch receiver. The bikes we carry are: Men’s Commencal mountain bike (size medium, 30 lbs), Women’s Specialized Jynx Elite mountain bike (size small, 25 pounds), and a Boy’s Trek bike (24” kids, 20 pounds).

Bikes are very easy to put on and take off.
Bikes are very secure on the rack.
Integrated lock.
Easy to fold up and down by myself.
Nice look on the car (not an eyesore).

The wedge did not fit into my hitch receiver and so there was more rattle/movement than there should have been.
I had to continually tighten the knob to keep it secure.
THE WELD BROKE (connecting the platform to the tube that goes into the hitch) and the bikes fell off while I was driving. I have photos. Thankfully it happen when I was driving slow in a smooth flat parking lot with nobody behind me. If this had happened on a road or the highway, my bikes would have been destroyed and I would have caused major accidents behind me (with serious injury/death to others). Me and my kids were left stranded 3 hours from home (our first trip away from home with the rack!). The only way to get home with our bikes was to go to a local bike shop and buy a Thule rack at a much higher cost and have the guys there help me get it put together and on my car.

Rockymounts needs to get rid of the weld and instead use bolts to connect them like other reputable manufacturers. My new Thule rack is connected with bolts and feels much more secure.

I was offered a replacement Rockymounts rack, but I declined. I am seeking a refund instead. I would not put anyone else on the road in jeopardy by putting another one of these racks on my car. It isn’t worth the risk. (Posted on 4/3/2017)
