When I look inside, I can see what is keeping it from sliding in, sorry it's blurry, see the little thing sticking out on the right hand side?
Is that sticking-out-thing normal?
Must be normal, but I don't know why it's there since the front end is closed anyway. I ran into the same thing with my Yakima rack. I ground a small circular notch on the end of the rack tube where that "tab" is. Since I had a die-grinder it only took a minute to fix.
