Why it's important to select the correct vehicle and tyre size. There are a surprising number of vehicles that cannot use traditional snowchains, the types that put chain on the inside of the wheel as well as on the tread.
This is usually because there is not enough space between the wheels and the shock absorbers; this can be a problem for ordinary SUVs and 4x4s as well as for high performance cars. You will find this important information in your car handbook - please check this before using your snowchains! Our database is intended to do the basic work for you but, with so many new vehicles and tyre sizes, it should only ever be treated as a guide.
Please also check your tyre size - if you buy incorrectly-sized chains they will be either too tight or too loose. The good news is that car handbooks usually only refer to "traditional snowchains". Ladder track chains such as the Polaire GRIP and Spikes-Spider range only put chain over the tyre tread, so are not subject to these restrictions. They are also ideal for use on rear wheel drives where there is minimal space between the top of the wheel and the wheel arch.
Atera's STRADA Sport tilting carriers are designed to take bikes up to 30kg each - which means electric bikes - yet this 3 bike version is cleverly engineered to weigh only It fits to all types of tow ball without any adjustment; you just place it on the tow ball and push down the handle - no tools are required.
It tilts away from the vehicle so you can access the car boot. A 4th bike adapter is available. Note that the maximum permitted load for the 3 bike version is 60kg. This superb rack from Atera is relatively compact and light yet the reinforced frame makes it suitable for carrying heavier and electric bikes up to 30kg. The optional drive-up rail makes the loading particularly comfortable if you have heavy bikes.
If you don't have heavy bikes we recommend the STRADA DL - it's lighter and because the bikes slide away from the tailgate you can be sure that you'll get the tailgate fully open, and you'll have much better loading space.
We reckon that Atera's new STRADA tilting carriers are the best designed and best engineered tow ball carriers on the market, bar none. The steel means the carrier reinforces where it need to be making it suitable for heavier bikes up to 30kg each yet the carrier only weighs They fit oval and other outsize frames as well as round ones, wrapping a strap right around the frame for safety and security. This looks like a simple plastic strap, but it is in fact 'sandwiched' around a spring steel core.
With swivel joints at both ends, and a slight curve in the aluminium support rod to increase the opportunities available, we haven't yet come across any combination of bike sizes and styles that can't easily be locked into place using the same key which locks the whole unit to the tow ball. It makes sense when using this carrier to place a safety strap around all the bikes and the bike holder support frame. We're therefore providing a free strap with each carrier - one strap per carrier!
As well as providing peace of mind the strap will also help to minimise vibration. Technical and miscellaneous: Weight of carrier: Longer straps are available for tyres up to 4" - listed below. The STRADA has five function rear lights so it is fitted with a 13 pin plug for 13 pin continental type electric sockets.
If you have a 7 pin socket you will need the Lighting adapter '13 pin' rack to 7 pin car listed below. If you need one of these remember to tick the box below to add this to your order. If you have a 7 pin socket the reversing light and fog light will not work. The 7 pin socket isn't wired for these functions. Note for vehicles with a rear mounted spare wheel: You may not be able to fit the STRADA onto vehicles with a rear mounted spare wheel: in our experience you almost always have to remove the spare wheel.
This could be 1 to get the bike carrier onto the vehicle the upright may hit the spare wheel , 2 to get the bikes to fit on the carrier the handlebars etc could hit the spare wheel or 3 take the carrier off the tow bar after use the handle to remove it could clash with the spare wheel. Made in Germany. We test, and often use personally, almost all the products we sell, and we stand behind our comments and recommendations unless customers convince us they need changing.
Our Customer Services and Workshop staff also have input into our recommendations. But it's because we've learned a lot over many years that customer feedback is so important. Fresh, first time out opinions are the most useful ones, and in any event we certainly don't have access to the full range of vehicles that our customers have between them.
Product feedback from existing customers helps our new customers make choices, and also helps our suppliers with their product development. We e-mail our customers a week or so after their order arrives and invite them to send in a review. Some reviews are suitable for multiple products. Where appropriate we may, for example, use the same review for a number of different roof bar products where the only difference is the length of the roof bar.
We offer our existing customers a full "Next Day if possible" spares service, and will cannibalise new stock as required to find you the parts you need. To find the spare parts you need, please see the diagram below, identify the product codes, then choose them from the list below. If you need more than 1 of any item, change the quantities in the Shopping Basket.
Deciding which bike carriers to buy is not always easy, especially as you may not have had experience of using bike carriers before. We hope that our buying guides provide useful guidance about which bike carrier 'strategy' will be most appropriate for your circumstances, as well as highlighting the best features of particular models.
We also have troubleshooting FAQs - for example, some customers struggle at first to fit four bikes onto a tow ball carrier, and wonder whether a different carrier would allow the bikes to be spaced wider apart. It won't, but we have some good tips which make bike fitting much easier. Our bike carriers Exchange Scheme covers roof mounting and tow ball mounting bike carriers only. It allows you to exchange within 90 days of invoice date. These are the rules of the bike carriers Exchange Scheme: You are allowed one exchange only.
The original equipment must be in "as new" condition, subject only to fair wear and tear. The replacement items must be different models from the originals. The replacement items must not be part of a package deal or be from our Bargains section. Roof bars are never part of the Exchange Scheme.
This is how the exchange scheme works: We charge in full for the replacement items, including the appropriate carriage charge and a charge for any packaging needed for the return of the originals. We pay the return carriage costs. When the originals arrive back here we refund you for their invoice value, but you won't get back more than the invoice value of the replacements. In other words, if the replacements are cheaper than the originals we won't be giving you "extra cash back".
Please note: we can only collect items from mainland UK. Delivery charges and arrangements: We charge a contribution towards delivery costs, depending on what you order, where you live, and how quickly you want the goods. There are different charges for any delivery including a sea crossing, and deliveries to Skye - we will contact you with a quote on receipt of order. We are very flexible with our deliveries and will aim to deliver on a day and at an address which suits you.
Goods can usually be left without signature - we prefer this with roof boxes. There's a "Special Delivery Instructions" box in the checkout area where we'll ask you to choose a typical instruction and then amend it to suit your particular requirements. No retailer or courier company can ever "guarantee" a Next Working Day delivery. All courier companies occasionally have the same transport problems as can happen to everyone else, including snow blocked roads, closed roads, traffic jams, mechanical breakdown, an inability to find the delivery address, or to gain access to it if, for example, it's in a block of flats.
We work with some of the best couriers in the business, and overall they provide an outstanding service. We take the following cards, and also PayPal. Please note that the entry on your card statement will be from "The Roof Box Company". Unusually, Thule bike carriers with 7 pin plugs also include a fog light; this works when plugged into 7 pin electrics, but it does not work when plugged into 13 pin electrics via an adapter.
If they are plugged into 7 pin electrics via an adapter then the fog light should work, but the reversing light on the bike carrier will not work.
Tow bar wiring in the digital age is much more complicated than it used to be when everything was analogue. Our experience is that if you are having lighting problems, e. We are a mail order company and do not have a showroom or shop, so please order online or by phone; thank you!

Dave B - Vehicle type: 4x4. The online tutorials are well worth watching twice in my case! Sussing out how to open up the hitch is the secret, which I did in front of the computer in the house!
The rack is a quality product that is well built, looks good, is extremely strong, durable and works well. I also like the large lighting cluster. Tilting the rack to access the car boot is straightforward too. My wife manages to lift and fit it onto the towball O. And if it was it would cost a small fortune like its competitors. Anne B - Vehicle type: Van. We needed a bike rack for 4 bikes and this one does the job perfectly.
It is a 3 bike rack but you can get an additional bike accessory which just bolts on and is very secure. The bike rack itself is easy to fit and once you have the hang of it you can attach the rack and place bikes on it within minutes. Each arm that secures the bikes has its own lock and the wheels are strapped in place using a ratchet style fitting which is so easy to use. We love this rack and we have travelled many miles with no problems at all.
