There is actually a bracket that bolts around the hitch with u bolts and has a plate that pushes up or down, can't remember, to take all of the slack out of the up and down as well as side to side movement. Bought at some RV store. Used to carry my Honda generators and was concerned with the movement. Fixed it right up.

I see in Cajun Po-Boy's pictures (thanks for the pictures) that there is one pin and one bolt. Is this the way it came from the factory? Mine has two pins on each side. No bolts. Maybe that's the problem with the excessive play.

Can you take pictures of your setup? And/or video of the movement that you're seeing?

Cajunpoboys uses the bolts for the pivot points and the pins to lock. The rubber pads (I have those) help to take the minimal slack out of the setup. Click image for larger version

ID:	47339. The rubber pads contact the bumper and prestress the rack just a bit and seems to take the slack out. All I have for pics right now but can get more detailed this wknd if needed.

When you carry bikes on this cargo rack, what so you personally use to keep your bikes tied down securely? Your bike wheels fit in those slats well? Suggestions? Thanks! I ordered the cargo rack for hauling my bikes on the Columbus 320RS but haven't taken delivery yet.

Here's a pic of how we secure our bikes. Our Sabre is a 2012 so our bike rack is a little different than the newer models. Instead of trays to set the bike tire in, ours had slots the wheels fit into. We had to make some mods to get the wheels to fit properly. We also added several eye bolts to the frame of the rack. We bought some handlebar straps from a motorcycle shop and use those along with ratchet straps to secure the bikes to the rack. Takes about 10 minutes to get them set, but they don't move during travel.
