Poor design on 90° lock pin
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I've used the Saris Swing Away a couple of times and it is not designed for the rated 250 lb weight limit listed. The 90° locking mechanism bent the first week of use while the bikes were swung open. It was windy in Hood River and was fully loaded using the Yakima Hangover 4 with 2 All-Mountain bikes and 2 DH bikes (approximately 210 lbs) but well under the 250 lb weight limit. I went with this version instead of the Yakima since it is a little longer on the arms and swings further away from the truck to allow the tailgate to open or open the door on the FWC Hawk camper. Definitely don't recommend the Saris Swing Away since the hinge is undersized and the 90° locking mechanism is crap. Saris needs to redesign the hinge and 90° lock to be more durable similar to Yakima or 1UPs Rak Attach version. I know Saris doesn't recommend using this product with other brand racks but don't understand how this would hold up any better with their products since their racks have longer moment arms applied to the swing away portion of the adapter.

Hi there. It would be excellent to convert this to carry my spare tire. Is there a hookup so the swing away can be used to carry either a bike or a tire? Thanks!
