They certainly do do the job and have plenty of length. Although the plastic buckles seem somewhat flimsy but time will tell. As for value for money, pricey for what they are.

Very handy to have. Stop the front wheel from moving particularly if you only have the one bike on the carrier. Small enough to be tucked away indiscreetly in the car. Definitely recommend.

What is a car rack?
A car rack makes transporting your bike(s) a simple task. There are a variety of types to choose from, all of which eliminate the need to dismantle your bike and place it in the boot of your car or even worse, rely on public transport.
Who needs a car rack?
Cyclists who attend events and races will find a car rack useful, even for local events as they prevent you being worn out from riding to the start line. A car rack will let you take your bike on holiday or a weekend away and larger capacity models mean you can take the whole family’s fleet of bikes.
What are the choices?
There are four types of car rack. Boot mounted, which sits at the back of your car. Inexpensive and easy to use, but some of these prevent access to your boot while you are on the move. Roof racks are a great solution, making use of unused space. However, there are lots of fittings required to accompany them. Tow ball mounts sit on a tow ball and 4x4 mounts fit over the spare wheel on SUVs and Land Rovers.
What should I buy with it?
Remember that your bikes aren’t secure in car racks. Be sure to chain them up as much as you can, or don’t leave them unattended at the service station. If you need to add an additional bike, certain brands have rack extensions to save you buying a whole new model.
Always check the maximum load a rack will carry, so as not to damage the rack and/or your bikes. Find one that you find easy to use and look for racks that fold away flat for easy storage.
