Need help with my roof rack fork mount
I just installed a Thule roof rack on my Altima and it seems secure. What I'm having trouble with is the fork mount tray I got from a friend of a friend.
The tray is a Thule model 525 or 529. It's probably pushing 10 years old but seems to be in good shape. I have it attached to the rack no problem, but I'm trying to figure out how to tighten the skewer. I haven't actually tried it with a bike yet because I'm afraid, lol. Does that make a difference?
Basically, it has the skewer and a "handle" type thing at the end, like a quick release, that I've put a Thule lock thru to attach it to the fork block. It seems that I should just put the fork in there, turn this handle until tight, then lock it to the block, but it doesn't seem to work that simply.
Does anyone else have this tray or can someone help me out?
Thanks in advance.
