           Locking Accessory

As one customers told us, "my bike's worth more than my car so this lock better work!"  An exaggeration perhaps, but we understand.  The Security Kit consists of two long-shanked padlocks (same keys) and a heavy duty vinyl coated straight steel cable.  The first lock goes through a hole in the  Pea Shooter (receiver) Pipe and the Leg of the Rack, locking the Rack to the car.  The cable goes through the bikes' frames and one or both wheels of each bike.  The cable padlocks to both ends of the cable and a hole through the Leg, locking the bikes to the Rack.

         A Customer Writes to Say Thanks
From San Diego: "I recently ordered, received and installed your bike rack for my 2002 Boxster S and I am SO appreciative of the quality of the design and ease of installation.  Everything fit perfectly, went together easily and the sturdiness of the unit is superb.  Even without the Porsche factory bike rack to compare against (with its terrible reputation for noise and time-consuming installation and the inability to raise or lower the roof once installed), your bike rack is a winner.  Easy to load up bikes, secure at speed, no noise…I am a grateful and very satisfied customer. Mike S."
