Rhode Gear Super Shuttle 3

Does anybody know where I can get a manual on this carrier? I have checked their website and it says it is under constrution. I was given the rack but with no instructions so I would like to get some so I put it on right and don't loose my bikes. It looks like it is a very good car rack.

Thanks for any help you might have.

It doesn't look like you're getting much help here. If you really want the manual you could go to the nearest shop that sells the rack and see if they can get you one.

I've used a supershuttle before and it's pretty easy. There's a couple of quick release type things that lock the frame peices together. Open those up and rotate the frame members until they are at a good angle to contact your trunklid, then close the quick releases. There should be several pair of straps that secure the rack to your trunk. Hook the clips on the edge of the trunklid and tighten the straps down. Try to hook a pair on the front, a pair on the sides and a pair on the rear of the trunklid. That's pretty much all there is to it. make sure your bike tires aren't near the exhaust pipe or you could melt them.

thbirks,

Thanks for the info. The concern I have is not how to install it but if it compatible with my vehicle. I have a 2000 Blazer and when I adjust it the top part is on the glass which I don't think is cool so I thought if I could get a manual to make sure it would avoid a disaster.

Other than you no I haven't been getting much help. There a 1,000,000 comedians out of work and these guys are trying to be funny. Go figure...

Thanks for your help...
