Hey guys

Treated myself to the expensive but very nice VW bike rack for the Transporter/Caravelle tailgate.

But... I cannot for the life of me work out how to secure and lock the 4th bike?! I fear I'm being hugely thick.

I have the removable arm, for securing it to the 2nd bike, but it has no lockable handwheel. That means bike 4 is totally stealable. The manual says the outermost bike is to be locked?

What am I doing wrong?

Any tips appreciated!

Thanks

Adam

You're not seeing things - the 4th one isn't lockable. We always used to use two bike locks and put them through all four bikes.

I use a motorcycle mini u disk lock with a cable through the frames whilst travelling. If I'm stopping and leaving the van, ie at the services, then I have a proper m/c chain and lock or 2 long d locks through each other.
I've just bought a towbar carrier, with similar set up, and will always be using the cable whilst travelling. There's a clip on youtube with a cyclist following a car and he's trying to undo the carrier each time the car stops. They'll try anything!
