    Default Need advice on a cycle carrier

    Has anyone got or used the below cycle carrier? I have got one on loan, but not too sure of it. I can't find a suitable point to locate the bottom securing straps for the carrier. My car is a Signum. Any info would be greatly appreciated, I have got it set up for the top and side straps but I am struggling to fit the bottom ones securely.

    I have the exact same one and use it on my Vectra. On the underside of the car, there are two holes where you can put the hooks into. Needs some protection so the straps do not rub on the bumper paintwork, but it works a treat.

    Not sure if the same holes are on the Siggy, but there must be somewhere you can hook them.

    I can't find any holes beind bumper, I think I will need to modify the straps to make them longer.

    Sorry mate, I can't remember your name as I met so many new faces at Irvine. I do not have a tow bar and I have only got the carrier on loan for a one off trip so there is no point in even thinking about fitting a towbar. If it comes to the worst I will strip the wheels off the bikes and put them inside the car if there is no alternative.
