Not sure of the exact model, but mine has the folding arms that are up high, for hanging road bikes. There is a locking cable inside each arm, and they are pulled out and the ends locked together. Well, when I pulled the cables out one day, rusty water belched out and stained my clothes. The major part that goes into the receiver also collects and holds water. Yes, I leave, or did leave, my rack on, not all of the time, but much of the time. Here in upper coastal Texas, rain can be not just a daily thing, but there can be morning showers followed by afternoon thundershowers for days at a time. My Yakima SpareRoc does OK in the rain. I could, I guess, just not use the Thule rack on rainy days, but that means rarely using it for months at a time.
Have Colt, will travel...
