    1upUSA rack sit even on your hitch?

    I finally got a chance to put my rack on my hitch today. I noticed that one of the trays sits a tad lower than the other one. My bumper is straight, so it's not a crooked bumper. Maybe I'm just being a little picky, but this bothers me.

    I want to return it for an exchange, but this is actually an exchange rack because the first one had a defective locking lever (blue) and it rattled. But that rack at least sat even on my hitch, whether it was folded up or down. So I know it's not my hitch or car making the rack look uneven.

    Need feedback from you guys. Is this normal?

    1st pic. This is the first rack, but the blue lever was rubbing the tray when locking it in place. Plus it was very tight. Returned for anonter rack. As you can see, it sits pretty even on the hitch.

    2nd and 3rd pics. Here is the second rack folded up and down. Notice that the driver-side tray is lower.

    This really irks me.

    You can move the tray if youd like. Now I have a question for you: why did you block your tag? Ive always wondered why people do that. I mean, you drive around with it all day long, right? Why block it in a photograph? Im genuinely curious.

    you mean adjust the wheel trays? I tried that, but I think the unevenness is something that I really can't fix.

    I dunno, everyone does it! I got nothing to hide

    There's been at least one other post asking this question, so you're not the only one. Mine also tilts a bit. I assume it has to do with tolerances of how the ball-thingey interacts with the internal corner of the hitch tube.
    whatever...
