How do you stop the thule bike rack swinging on the tow bar and crashing into the car?

I bought the Thule 972 bike carrier. When I attach it to the tow bar it swings on the ball of the tow bar, no matter how hard I tighten it. How can I prevent this so the bike wheels don't crash into the car?

SOURCE: How do I mount my Thule Adventurer to my new 2013 Outback?

Have to fabricate another frame to adapt the two.

I would say stainless steel or if you use aluminum
then have it anadized to prevent corrosion

I you don't weld or want to spend any money-- your done.

I have a kia sportage 2008 i need to remove the thule rail bars and clamps and as they were fitted by halfords i have no clue as to how to do it as i do not see anywere to loosen them. maxine


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

This carrier just grips the side of the roof to the inner part of the frame. You may need to rotate the valve counter clockwise to loosen them. This rotating knobs are used to secure the carrier without screwing.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Bike rack for 940 wagon


The mount on the rain gutters...Thule, Yakima, etc. Get locking feet...worth the extra money.

I think you can also get some for hanging off the tailgate...check with the companies online or in a local dealer.

Thule box


like ANY roof rack cargo, it will be cumbersome. is it safe? it depends if you installed it properly and how fast you drive. i carried a pw50 (standing up)on top of my wifes rx300 from illinois to california...it didnt budge or made severe noises.
