We purchased this rack for use on a Chevy Tracker ; Jeep Liberty. We wanted something that would be able to slip on/off without alot of tools and be able to be mounted on either SUV that we own without alot of hassle.
Both spare tires have covers and we wanted something that did not require mounting to one of the bolts holding on the spare tire.
This rack has been used several times in the last month and works great.
Another review on here stated they received the rack with just plain arms for sitting the bike on. Ours did come with the plastic cradles and rubber straps shown in the present picture of the rack and which are the newer model. (part SR1-SA2)
The rack has remained tight on the spare tire ever since the original mounting. The only cons we noticed and this was mentioned on another review was that we did notice a small amount of rust after only a few days on the tightening bolts threads. Other than this, the rack has performed as expected and we would recommend this rack for anyone who has multiple vehicles with outside spare tires and might want to change the rack to the either vehicle without alot of hassle.
I just purchased the SR1, as advertised here on Amazon and on Hollywoodracks.com. However, it is NOT the one in the photos on either site. The one in the photos has, I discovered, support arms that are new for 2007. Their part number is SR1-SA2 and they have the cradle and rubber straps to set the bike frame in. The prior support arms simply have a dip in the arm where you set the frame, so you have to figure out some other way to keep the bike from bouncing off the support arms. That part number is SR1-SA.
Apparently Hollywood Racks did not think to distinguish the new from the old model because they are both SR1. So, be careful what you buy because I'm not sure there is a way to tell which you are getting unless you open the box, since the model number is the same for both. (Looks like a convenient "mistake" that allows Hollywood to unload older merchandise on consumers!)
As to how the bike rack works -- not sure I'm going to even keep it, so can't say yet.
