A cable fits nicely in the shackle giving me a one key solution. I also don't mind using the Velcro strap as a backup. As a plus, my hatch clears the rack when it is folded in the fully up stowed position making access to the back really easy!! Loving it so far.

    You have great taste in cars, colors, and racks, Sir. Attachment 1156899

    This is not the same 1up. Look at the other thread for more info. 1up-usa.com and 1upusa.com are not (or are no longer) the same company. If I need anything else for my 1up rack I'll be using 1up-usa.com.

    I may purchase another add on rack sooner than I had previously planned from 1up-usa.com because who knows what could happen if a legal battle starts.

    Any Canadian owners care to comment on the shipping/duty/brokerage fees for getting one of these up to Vancouver? the web site mentions duty , but I thought NAFTA meant no duty on made in N.A products? Im pretty close to ordering one ( or the other 1upusa "mach 2" rack ) but am a little worried about being hit with a whopper of a shipping bill.
    Thanks!

    I'd go with terrible. Why, just why?

    It's either both or neither. The license plate didn't touch the wooden rail but I don't think there was more than a quarter of an inch in between.

    Yes you are going to get hit with a bill. One up will only ship with a courier so the courier charges a brokerage fee, usually $50-$70 whether there is duty or not. If they shipped usps to Canada post then there would be no charges. This goes with any online ordering that uses a courier like Fed-ex, UPS, etc.
    Even with shipping fees it is worth it. Give them a call and see if they'll send it in the mail.

    I go up to Canada (southern Ontario) quite often. For a nominal fee I can make a personal delivery. LOL

    make it out to Vancouver and we'll talk! lol

    thanks for the input guys, sounds close to what 1up said to me. Duty free, but brokerage is up to the shipper , usually around $60. ish.

    I almost never order online or internationally, and the few times I have ive be pretty blown away by the surprise fees .

    Thanks for the info!
