Saris Bones Solo - How did you improvise an anti-sway?

The Saris Bones Solo doesn't come with an anti-sway tie down.

When mounted on a hatchback, and depending on the angle, the bike can be awfully close to the trunk door or even resting on it.

If you have ever faced a similar situation, how did you improvise your own anti-sway for this arrangement?

6 strap hooks, 2 go on the side of the hatchback or trunk lid, 2 to the top , 2 to the bottom.

If not there .. add them.. check back where you Bought the rack for hands- on Help.

nylon webbing is commonly available (fabric stores, on a reel) ,

the Bike shop should be able to order more hooks from Saris For you..

Or trade up for the 2 bike one..
