Yes, it is designed to support the wheel and tire as you put it on. As SwissSteph said you have to remove the brake light, and disconnect it. Then you put the wire into the access hole and remove or install your tire. If you have your wiring ran a different way, then you'll have to adjust as needed to avoid pinching the wire. Since the brake light is designed to be a quick release, this is the way it should be done when installing your tire.@TeraFlex is the camera snout built to support the weight fo a wheel & tire? I would assume so, when trying to line up the lugs, etc... If so, why have the brake light wire come out on top and be vulnerable? I know my 126 pound beadlocks would cut it instantly. I have this carrier and routed my light wiring up behind the carrier and through the wheel. And when mounting, you would have to fish the wire through the hub while holding the tire... But, am I missing something???
