Thule ClipOn 9104 car rack

Our review

Exceptionally well-designed rack with snappy fitting and secure mounting
Skip to view product specifications

Rubber-coated metal straps clamp onto the top and bottom of your car’s tailgate, and the ClipOn rack is so stable there’s no need for side straps. 


With the clear instructions, assembly took about 30 minutes, and the quick-release levers allow removal and fitting in seconds, with the rack folding for storage.

Soft, grippy rubber cradles hold top or seat tubes, and an adjustable fender keeps the bikes away from the car. The rack carries up to 45kg and has a five-year guarantee. 


Our only concern was whether very small frames will fit over the arms. Depending on the shape of your car, you may need to buy a separate lighting board.
