Swagman Fork Down Roof Bike Rack Review – 2012 Honda Civic – etrailer.com


Today on our 2012 Honda Civic, well be test
fitting the Swagman Forkdown roof mounted bike carrier, part number S64710. To mount our carrier up on our vehicle, well
set it in place on top of our load bars. At the head of the bike carrier well feed
our U-bolts up from the bottom, below our crossbar, and through the plate at the head
of the bike rack. Then well use the wing nuts to tighten them
down. At the rear, well fit the U-bolt through the
top of the bike rack, around our rear load bar. Well fit the clamp from the bottom side, and
tighten it down again with wing nuts. With that done, our roof racks secured to
our vehicle and were ready to load it up. We need to make sure that our skewer at the
front of the bike carrier is open. We also want to make sure that the wheel strap
at the rear of the carrier is also undone. Well pick up our bike, sit the rear wheel
into the tray, and drop the front fork down into our skewer. Well secure the bike first to the skewer,
then move back and use the strap to secure the wheel.
