If you want guaranteed "not falling off" security you're better off going for a tow ball mounted one. Get a removable towbar & you don't affect the appearance when you're not using it

Yeah that would be the ideal, but the cost rules it out at the moment. It will only have very occasional use, like maybe twice a year, so couldn't justify spending that much anyway, the rest of the time it's easy to put up to 3 bikes inside the car. And i will obviousely test out whatever carrier i get before driving anywhere. The trip i want it for, they are all sub 30lb bikes apart from mine at 32 (i think) and i will use extra straps.

I've followed loads of carriers with straps flaying around in the wind... remember even decent carriers will fail if they're put on by a dumpty :lol: :lol:
