As many know, the Sportworks hitch racks are among the best. Then they sold to Thule, and were the same great racks. NOW, Thule has run out of their stock of them, and are coming out with their own "new" version of the Transport racks. I talked to one of the reps on the phone yesterday, and she said they changed a few little things, one of which is the locking mechanism. I think they added a Cable lock option too. Lets hope that they don't screw this one up too bad!
