Mount-n-lock 4" bumper support.

After seeing the thread about a member that had his 4" bumper break at the bumper welds I was checking out the Mount-n-lock website. Anyone have any good reviews on the Mount-n-lock 4" bumper supports. Suppose to keep this from happening and allow up to 400 Lbs after using them. Just looking for anyone that has positive or negative review that's actually used them.

What are you planning to mount to the bumper? Watch the tongue weight.

I have a three wheel bicycle that I haul now on the bumper with no problem and I feel I know better but because the Warranty just ran out I didn't want to mess with anything until it ran out so not to affect the warranty. I was thinking about carrying my beach cart on a hitch above the bicycle with two empty coolers. On my previous 5er I had a hitch welded to the frame and that's how I carried my stuff but with no more weight than I would be carrying, 125Lbs max I thought this might be all I would need.

So I decided to give the Mount-n-lock system a try. Ordered today and will get it in 4-7 days and then will install on my 4" bumper. I will give an update when I get it mounted.

PapaT, just wondering if you installed this bike mount? Can you give me your opinion and maybe the link.. I'm in the beginning stage to add something to carry the 2 bicycles. Was leaning towards the rear bumper,

I did very impressed with the results. Also got the lock-n-ride 2” receiver. Fairly easy to install and I can tell it beefs it up.

Did you relocate your spare? If not you should. That’s a very large dynamic load that most don’t consider first.

My spare is underneath on the front of my 5er so it wasn’t an issue.
