Yakima pulled out all the stops creating the KingJoe trunk rack. Available in a two- and three-bike version, it fits most vehicles. It attaches with six straps, can easily be adjusted for a perfect fit and has padded feet that stabilize the rack and protect the car. The KingJoe's oversize Quick-Trigger Hubs make installation and removal a snap. And, its integrated Switchblade cradles hold bikes safely and securely. Crafted from heavy-duty steel tubing, the KingJoe is fully assembled and ready to use right out of the box, too.
Features and Information
Includes Glass-Hatch hooks for use with cars with glass hatchbacks
Tried hard to like this bike rack however the difficulty in removing the bike from the rack finally did me in. The rubber straps holding the bike to the rack come with round grommets which are fitted over a triangular flange. Once the grommet is fitted over the flange - unless you are strong - it is nigh on impossible to remove. I needed help every time. Thankfully able to get a refund.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
