After reading tons of reviews and doing research on the best bike racks I thought I was going to be disappointed by getting what may be considered a budget rack. However, the fourtimer is super solid construction and high quality. It comes with a hitch lock which is a big plus. Many of the other brands don't, or the ones that do cost twice as much. It take one bolt to convert from four to two, or two to four bikes so it is easy to downsize the rack if you don't need all four slots all of the time. There is a bit of play where the hitch mounted part of the rack connects to the hinging part of the rack, whereas other higher prices options have a more stable overall feel, but I am ok with it. It is minimal and I don't anticipate it being a problem. Out of the box it took about 15 minutes to install: putting in the hitch, putting on the hitch lock, connecting the first two bike holders , then connecting the other two bike holders. There are a total of five bolts required for the install and is totally doable with one person. I wouldn't hesitate recommending this to someone who doesn't want to spend $1K on a bike rack.
