Rear mounting bike carriers

These are the bike carriers that are fixed onto the back of a vehicle. Although they are often sold as "universal" carriers they should be considered to be "car specific" which means that they should only be used if they have been specifically approved for use on a particular vehicle. The list below will allow you to find out about the products in detail, but to order you will need to choose your vehicle from our database. If a particular carrier is not listed it is probably not approved for your vehicle.

These carriers should not be used on vehicles with rear spoilers unless it's a small boot spoiler on a saloon car which does not touch the fixing straps. Great care is always required when using these carriers - they can be dangerous if fitted incorrectly, quite apart from likely tailgate damage.

None of the rear mount carriers we sell has straps which pass over the bumper and therefore prevent the tailgate being lifted when the bike carrier is fitted - this is a common and exasperating feature of many carriers of this type! If an additional light board is required we will tell you; the socket for this is usually wired into the rear light circuit - this is usually a job for a local garage or auto electrician.

If in doubt about which one to buy we recommend a Saris Bones.

"Enjoy your Bike" magazine Best Buy Award and, much more importantly, the Auto Express Best Buy award for rear door fitting carriers. Some cars require a lighting unit, and some require the use of a special window adapter where there is no metal at the top of the tailgate - the database will tell you whether these are required, and list the lighting board options.

3 bikes - Thule ClipOn 9103

Thule's 3 bike ClipOn carrier was modified in 2006; the previous version was an Auto Express Best Buy award winner. It has metal straps, and once adjusted for your vehicle is very quick and easy to clip / snap into place, and to remove. It's a low mount carrier so will almost certainly require the use of a lighting board. There are two versions of the ClipOn - one's mainly for hatchbacks, the other for estates.

:Thule ClipOn High 2 bike carrier no. 9105(car-specific)
2 bikes - Thule ClipOn High 9105

Thule's silver coloured 2 bike ClipOn High carrier 9105 is a flexible and quickly mounted wheel support rack - the bikes don't block the rear lamps or the registration plate. The very simple mounting is made possible with the help of the patented 'snap on' fitting system. It takes a bit of adjustment first time out, but fitting and removal is then a doddle compared to other rear mounted systems.
