I have used this a few times. Easy to use and sturdy. Please note that the bar that is used to secure the 4th bike was lost on our first trip.
But, we found that a cheap D-lock and/or chain lock was a perfect (and possibly better) alternative. Heavy, so collection only from Battersea SW11. I should stress that I got someone else to do this so please do check for yourself.The rack itself is fully assembled. The rack then slots into the plate. That plate is secured to the towbar with two M16 bolts.
You may have these bolts already fitted to your towbar. If they are not, they are available at Screwfix.
