Can the bike rack be locked on to the hitch...

Can the bike rack be locked on to the hitch so the whole thing cannot be stolen. I know the bike can be locked on the rack but it doesn't do much good if the whole thing can be taken.

Gail, you will want to buy a receiver lock. They go through the hitch and lock so they cannot be removed. These can be purchased about anywhere.

The problem with this rack is that even though the bottom piece can be locked to the hitch, the bottom is connected to the long bar piece by a standard bolt that can be removed with an allen key and a wrench. Your hitch receiver will be secure, meanwhile the rest of your rack and your bikes can be stolen quite easily.
