Your bike rack looks like it is for a 1 1/4" receiver. Your Acadia most likely has a 2" receiver. They do make 2" to 1 1/4" adapters.

yeah make sure its not a 1 1/4 male end.
Even a 2 incher male end- will have a little wiggle in it.

On my bike rack- it has a threaded bolt that I use a wrench to tighten (within the male end of the rack there is 'nut' that the bolt threads into). then I put a lock on the end (made for this bolt) so they cant steal the bikes/rack.
some racks come with a bolt, with indentation to put the cotter pin through it.
or you buy the lock that goes in the end of the bolt

the bolt is used to tighten the bike rack against the hitch. gets rid of the wiggle.
