Before this rack my only experience was with the Saris Bones trunk racks. The Yakima Quick Back is much easier to install and includes many convenient additions. The labeled straps make installation simple, and if you're installing on a glass trunk or hatch Yakima has included interchangeable straps for you. There are clamps to hold the excess rope so that it isn't flying around as you drive. Also the anti-theft cable is a good idea. I doubt that it would stop anyone who is very determined to steal the rack, but it will definitely help keep honest people honest. It works well on my 2003 Camry and easily goes over the spoiler. The only problem that I've had with it is that the sides of my trunk are angled inward and if I don't tighten the side straps extremely tight they slide downward and become loose. Because of all of the other positives of the rack I overlook this and use it as an excuse to get the straps extra tight. But it is something you should consider before buying it for yourself.
