Backing up to a wall works pretty good too.

Oops just reread it and you already mentioned that, sorry.

It's a great idea, and the reminder to use a spotter is priceless. But if I may be permitted to nitpick, is this really a hack?

From the looks of it, I've used the same car and same rack to transport bikes. With a long cable lock before locking the lock you can tie a hitch around the upright and the cross bar holding the bikes that makes it impossible to take the bikes off the rack. But, you still have the problem of the easily cut cable lock holding everything together. Backing up against something sturdy is a good plan.

I use a cable lock to keep my front wheel(s) from spinning around while I'm driving. I also look my cable lock through the frame and lock it to a hole I drilled in the rack itself. It's security and function in one.
