    It is perfect for my needs. Installed on my 2019 Crosstrek I can open the hatch with it in place to grab something out of the back quickly, or I can swing it away so have full access to the Crosstrek rear cargo area. Installation was pretty easy. I did have to buy a big wrench to tighten the bolt that hinges to swing, but that was expected and not negative because the bolt was so big and strong to act as the hinge I understand why. I think the wrenches cost me $10 each at Home Depot. Well worth the purchase.

    The StowAway cargo carrier is awesome! Very fast shipping easy to install and operate. The swing away design is a no brainer compared to a fixed carrier. They could probably knock off about $100. But I feel it is a great buy if you need a swing away carrier.
