I bought this rack to use with the factory rails and crossbars on a 2014 Ford Escape. If you install the rack in this configuration you will not be able to open the hatch all the way without interfering with the rack. It is about 1.5" too long.Unfortunately there is no way to adjust the install position. The mount point of the rack to the front crossbar is fixed... as are the crossbars on the Escape.One suggestion was to mount the rack backwards. I did not like the idea of the tray extending well over the sunroof opening.My solution was to elevate the rear of the rack using an old Thule loadbar.After this slight adjustment I am happy with the rack.The skewer for the fork mount was very stiff at first. Working the lock nut back and forth a few times loosened it up just fine.
