1Up bike rack and trunk clearance on Model 3?

Hi, how much clearance does the trunk have on a M3 with this bike rack? any pics? did some searching and didn't come up with much for the M3.

This looks like it tilts back to clear but curious how that works and how easy that is to adjust when there is a heavy bike on it?

Thanks in advance
I've got a 1Up and it is pretty easy to tilt with 2 road bikes on it. Super great rack. It has catches built in so when you tilt it, it will latch before hitting ground, assuming there is enough clearance. The way the rack holds the bikes, they don't move when you tilt, so it is really easy. The hardest part is reaching the latch mechanism to tilt the rack since it is below everything. I don't however, have a Tesla, but I use the rack on a pickup and a minivan and it is easy to use in either case.
