Swagman Fork Down Roof Bike Rack Review – 2008 Toyota RAV4 – etrailer.com


Today on our 2008 Toyota RAV4, were going
to be test fitting the Swagman Fork Down Roof-mounted bike carrier, part number S64710. Our RAV4 is fully equipped with a full factory
roof rack, so were going to mount the fork down directly to the factory crossbars. Well go ahead and set it up on top of our
roof rack. Well position the head of the carrier over
our front crossbar. Well push our u-bolts up from the bottom and
secure it at the top with a pair of wing nuts on both the driver and passenger side of the
carrier. With the head of the carrier secured, well
move back to the rear. Well push the u-bolt down to the top of our
carrier, fit a clamp around the bottom side of the crossbar and use a pair of wing nuts
again to tighten it down. With our bike rack secure, we can start loading
up a bike. We need to make sure that the wheel strap
of the back of the carrier is undone; we also need to make sure that our skewer is open. Well pick up our bike, place the rear wheel
into the wheel tray, and place the front fork down into our skewer. Well adjust the skewer and secure the bike
first upfront then well move to the rear and use the wheel strap to secure the rear wheel.
