Swagman Upright Roof Mounted Bike Rack Review – 2013 GMC Terrain – etrailer.com


Today, on our 2013 GMC Terrain, we’re
going to be test fitting the Swagman Upright Roof Bike Rack, part number S64720. With our Thule Rapid Crossroads Roof Rack
system already installed on the Terrain, we’ll begin our test fit by placing our rack directly
onto our load bars. Here at the front, we’ll bring one of
the U-bolts around the underside of our load bar, through the head of the carrier, and
we’ll hold them in place with two wing nuts. We’ll complete this same process for the
other side on the front of the rack and then well tighten down all four wing nuts
to secure our rack in place. With the front secure, we’ll move to the
rear. Here at the rear, we’re going to bring
one of the U-bolts down through the rack, being sure that it comes out on both sides
of our load bar. We’ll then place on the rubber coated
metal plate and hold it in place with two wing nuts. We’ll now tighten them down and with both
of these secure our rack is firmly secured to our vehicle.
