Assembly of Rack

Begin assembly of your Alumina3 rack by removing
the main rack assembly and the 2 arms from the
box. Attach the arms to the main rack assembly
so that the yellow bails on the ends of the arms
are pointing up. Use the detent pins provided to
secure the arms in place.
1
Place the straps on the bike arms.
To convert your 2” rack to a 1.25” rack you will
need to add on the 1.25” assembly to the 2” hitch
bar. Remove the nut holder from the inside of the
2” hitch bar assembly. Slide the three-holed nut
plate inside the 2” hitch bar, aligning the holes.
Pass the three bolts through the lock washer and
1.25” hitch bar and tighten to the nut plate. Make
sure the three bolts are tightened securely and
recheck the tightness of the bolts from time to time.

Place bicycles onto the rack starting at the point
closest to the vehicle. Alternate the direction the
bikes are facing when mounted on the rack. When
not carrying bikes, remove the detent pins, lower
the arms to the vertical position and re-secure the
arms with the detent pins or remove arms and
store in a secure place.
Soft wraps can be used to prevent your bikes from
swaying during transport. After placing the first
bike on the rack, secure it to the rack uprights as
shown. Use the remaining soft wraps to secure
each additional bike to the previous bike.

tube.
To lower the rack, grasp the release lever and
