I used wire ties (zip ties} to attach them to the rack. Worked out very well.

Ring,
the rack can be adjusted so that you do not have to move the support bar up and down for setups. The bunk end should slide out over top of the bar.
'course no getting around taking the bikes off.
There are pads that attach to the back wheels to protect the roof finish and assist in keeping the wheel from sliding. You also do need to use the straps on the bike to keep it from bouncing around under way.

rack

Thank you, sir, that sets my mind more at ease...
MiCamper6, I am trying to visualize the wheel/tire zip tied to the rack- how exactly do you place them? Sorry to be a pest but I really need the rack for this summer and want to get it right!

I would tie the tires to the cross bar and to either the uprights or to each other. That way each tire has at least 2 wire ties securing it.
