    Very solid and well built. Helps from swaying and makes it harder to steal.

    The extender allowed me to use the rack with my Ram truck. Now I can lower the tailgate when the rack is upright. Great product!

      Small piece of equipment that makes a big difference and does not create other issues.Thanks for the review.

    Solid addition to the rack but only had some ugly silver splatter painted one. Looking for alternative swing mount to buy or build.

      Hi Bryan,
      I sent you an email as well, Silver vein is our third most popular color and. Totally understand if you don’t like the color though, we have some extenders in black and will gladly do an exchange. Please reach out to us and we will make sure you are satisfied with your purchase.

    The extender for our Alta Six is the complete solution. Full rear door access for our 2019 Sprinter van. The build is durable, matching the sexy look of the entire Alta Six!

    Used this on a sprinter van so that I can have full access to the back when the rack is dropped down. Worked like a charm!

    Only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because I can’t open both doors on my 2019 low roof Ford transit . Right door opens with an inch or less of clearance but left door does not open . Website states that tow hitch should be flush with bumper but that is not possible on Ford transit unless you weld tow hitch on . The bolt on hitch does not sit flush and is recessed which is causing the issue of door not fully opening .

      Its so close, this is the first transit that has had this issue. I think with bikes on the rack will flex back further and potentially clear that door. Since the rack has not been what you expected we would give you a full refund. Please reach out to us thru email.
