    Bike carrier towbar towball mount. Mounting question.

    Hey so my friend and I got this carrier for free but it wasnít mounted and the previous owner didnít remember how it was going. Based on the attached picture, can you tell me if thatís how it going or itís meant to be going with the towbar tongue inside like drawn?

    My guess is that it needs to be like you drew it or else the bike rack will rotate around the ball's spindle when you drive bumpy roads.

    Yeah makes sense. Even though itís pretty tight. Used my impact wrench at work and tighten it to around 180nm

    Actually Iíve found out that it wonít fit inside as itís shape doesnít allow it to slide in. So thatís the only way to go.
