Thule ClipOn 9104 for 3 bikes (needs adapter 9111 and a lighting board)
Thule's 3 bike ClipOn has metal straps, and once adjusted for your vehicle is very quick and easy to clip / snap into place, and to remove. There are two versions of the ClipOn - one's mainly for hatchbacks, the other for estates.
It's a low mount carrier so will almost certainly require the use of a lighting board and a number plate as your lights and number plate are usually obscured.
Thuleís three bike ClipOn carrier has metal straps so that, once adjusted, itís very easy to put on and take off.
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. All straps are included but we have found that the bikes are usually secured most effectively with an additional long strap to hold everything tight, and are therefore providing a free strap with each carrier - one strap per carrier!
Other features include:
This isn't a high-mount carrier and the lights and number plate are usually obscured when using this rack so most cars will require a lighting board and a number plate. If you have a bike without a traditional cross bar (e.g. ladies or downhill bikes) you will probably need to use an artificial cross bar to allow them to fit to this rack.
Please note that you cannot use rear fixing carriers on cars with rear spoilers, or on vehicles where modifications to the roof or tailgate would have an effect on the fitting of the carrier. Find a different solution - either roof mounting and/or tow bar mounting.
We offer our existing customers a full "Next Day if possible" spares service, and will cannibalise new stock as required to find you the parts you need. For new customers, i.e. those who have not bought from us before, we will order the parts from Thule which usually takes 2 to 4 weeks.

Delivery charges and arrangements:
We charge a contribution towards delivery costs, depending on what you order, where you live, and how quickly you want the goods.
For most UK addresses, the charge for our two to three day service is £5.50 (£9.50 for orders including a roof box) and our charge for Next Working Day deliveries is £8.50 (£12.50 for orders involving a roof box). AutoSock, shoe chains, RUD i-Sock, and small spare parts, are charged £3.95 (Royal Mail Tracked), £4.95 (Royal Mail Express Tracked) or £5.95 (express courier, usually Next Working Day).
There are different charges for any delivery including a sea crossing, and deliveries to Skye - we will contact you with a quote on receipt of order.
Orders for Next Working Day delivery need to be received by 4.00pm.
There are no deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays, except for postable items where Royal Mail has a Saturday delivery. Next Working Day orders placed on a Friday will be delivered on the Monday, Next Working Day orders placed on a Saturday will be delivered on the Tuesday.
We are very flexible with our deliveries and will aim to deliver on a day and at an address which suits you. Goods can usually be left without signature - we prefer this with roof boxes. There's a "Special Delivery Instructions" box in the checkout area where we'll ask you to choose a typical instruction and then amend it to suit your particular requirements.
No retailer or courier company can ever "guarantee" a Next Working Day delivery. All courier companies occasionally have the same transport problems as can happen to everyone else, including snow blocked roads, closed roads, traffic jams, mechanical breakdown, an inability to find the delivery address, or to gain access to it if, for example, it's in a block of flats. We work with some of the best couriers in the business, and overall they provide an outstanding service.
We take the following cards, and also PayPal. Please note that the entry on your card statement will be from "The Roof Box Company".
If you would prefer not to pay online, or to pay by cheque, please phone us to place your order.
The bikes will almost certainly obscure the lights on the back of this vehicle so you would also need a lighting board (listed below) when using a boot mounting rack on this car. Lighting boards are not expensive but you will need to have a socket fitted for the lighting board to plug in to. If you contact your local garage or auto-electrician they will be able to quote you for a socket.
If your bikes also obscure the number plate you will also need a new number plate made up. You will need to get this done locally.
Artificial cross bars
If you have any bikes without a traditional cross bars these would require an Ďartificial cross barí to allow them to hang off the arms of these racks, these are listed below.
It's not possible to fit this rack to a car with a spoiler.
It's not possible to use this rack if your tailgate has a glass or plastic edge.
Opening the boot
It's not possible to open the boot of the car with a rear door fitting rack without first removing the bikes.
It's not possible to operate your rear wipers when using a boot mounted rack.
If your bikes are positioned in front of the parking sensors you may find they have an effect on how they work.
This rack does not come with any locks; you may find a cable lock useful as a deterrent if you are leaving the bikes unattended.
