Easily install the carrier between your truck-bed side rails. Open the cam lever to release the telescoping arm.

You can also use the pre-drilled holes in each end pad to bolt the carrier onto your truck-bed side rails.


Locking Design

To deter theft, lock each bike to the rack with the included quick-release skewers. You can also secure the rack to your truck with the locking macro adjustment cam lever and micro adjustment knob.

Video Transcript for Swagman Patrol Truck Bed Bike Rack Review - 2018 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Ford F250 Super Duty we're going to be test fitting the Swagman Patrol 2 Bike Rack for truck beds. Part number S64701.The Swagman Patrol 2 enables you to carry up to two bikes by their fork mounts in the rear of your truck. You can carry them by the fork mounts, or you can actually have these adapted for through axle bikes as well.To switch these out from the skewer mount that you see here to the through axle mounts, you would remove the bike completely, loosen up this screw, remove the inside and replace that through axle adaptor through at that point and then retighten that screw.The adapters that come with it can fit 15 mm through axles. It can also accept 20 mm through axles with an adapter. Part number S64715, which is sold separately.This uses a telescoping end here and this is going to help it fit varying truck bed widths with this knob to tighten down on the side of it, to keep it held in place. It does come with a series of locks that are key to life to help secure this to your truck bed once it's installed as well.It also has these padded ends here, so once you place it onto the bed rails, it's not gonna scratch or scuff up your truck once it's installed.It also has this latch on the inside here.

Now when it's in the open position, that's when this telescoping portion can be shifted in or out. This does have a nice sleek design which works with most truck bed applications. And it is also is made from black anodized aluminum, which means it's rust and corrosion resistant.This bike rack is really good for people who don't already have a hitch bike rack and don't necessarily want to spend the money on it. And it's also used both with road bikes as well, keeping them safe and protected behind the cab of the truck while you travel.While the carrying capacity at this point is two bikes, you can carry up to four road bikes or three mountain bikes with an additional fork block. Part number S64703, which is sold separately.The carrying capacity for this is about 35 pounds per bike.

And the adjustable length is from 49 inches to 64 inches.What we'll first do is set our Patrol 2 into place. Make sure that it's even on both sides. Then we'll close this hatch here, so it can't telescope anymore. And then we'll take our handle here to tighten this up against our other mount here. And as we tighten it, that's gonna press this against the rail and keep it from moving around.And once we're done with that, we can take our included keys, lock that into place so that now no one can loosen this up.

And then we can find the proper spot for our fork mounts here on both sides. And then we'll tighten those down as well.So we'll take our enclosed Allen tool, tighten the special bolts on the inside, till they are tight and not gonna move. We'll repeat this process for our remaining bolts.So now we can install our skewers on both sides as well. Then we can get our bikes ready to be installed. Then we take our bike, load it into our fork mount, like so.

Then we'll tighten it up as needed. By tightening up the knob at the other end, here we go. Then we can take our keys and lock it into place and secure it down and we're ready to hit the road.First we'll take it onto our inaudible 00:03:22 Course. This will show you the side to side action, such as making turns or invasive maneuvers.Now we're at alternating speed bumps. This will show you how it looks driving on uneven pavement or pot holes.Finally, we're at the solid speed bumps, which simulates going into your driveway or parking lots.And there you have it for the Swagman Patrol 2 Bike Rack on our 2018 Ford F250 Super Duty.

2017 Toyota Tacoma

Quite pleased with nearly everything regarding this rack. Setup was super easy right out of the box, loved that I didn't need any tools. Bikes feel very secure and I haven't noticed any shifting or movement while driving around. My only complaint is that it's possible for someone to remove (or steal) the locking skewers when there's no bike attached just by unscrewing the endcap. Even if the handle is locked in place, just unscrew the endcap and you can remove the whole locking mechanism. So...works fantastic when there's a bike to be hauled, but makes me uncomfortable when I just park the truck and walk away. Works great, could just be a bit more secure. 344915

Ask the Experts about this Swagman Truck Bed Bike Racks

  • Recommended Locking Skewers for Swagman Patrol 2 Bike Rack
    Swagman does not have the replacement locking skewers for their Swagman Patrol 2 # S64701. So, I recommend the Locking Skewer for Rhino-Rack Fork Mount Bike Carriers # RBCA002 which will work with your system.

  • Truck Bed Bike Rack Recommendation for 2019 Toyota Tacoma with Bed Rail System
    For your 2019 Toyota Tacoma with a bed rail system the Swagman Patrol part # S64701 is a confirmed fit that would work well. This will attach to the bed rails and give you two fork mounts for bikes to attach to.

  • Solution for Securing Front Bike Wheels with Truck Bed Bike Rack
    The Thule Wheel-On Roof Mounted Bike Carrier # TH593 that you referenced may physically fit the crossbar for the Swagman Patrol 2 Bike Rack # S64701 but I can't recommend doing this. The Swagman Patrol isn't designed to support this type of carrier and since they haven't been tested together I can't guarantee it will keep the wheel in place during trips. The Thule Wheel-On is designed to mount to standard roof rack crossbars that can handle a lot more weight and have a more secure attachment...

  • What Type of Bike Rack to Use on Truck with Tonneau Cover
    Because your tonneau cover attaches to the bed rails by grabbing the inside of the bed rail you would want to go with the truck bed bike rack Thule part # TH501 that attaches to the floor. The Swagman part # S64701 would interfere with the tonneau since it would be putting pressure on the setup. Check out the review video I attached for this rack as well.

  • Recommended Lockable Truck Bed Bike Rack for 2017 Toyota Tacoma with Cargo Management Rails
    Your best bet for a lockable bike rack that is compatible with the Cargo Management Rails on your new 2017 Toyota Tacoma is the Inno Velo C-Channel-Mount Gripper Bike Rack # INRT202. This carrier offers no-drill installation and includes D-rings that provide anchor points for a cable lock or tie-down points for cargo straps. You can use our cable lock # e98891 to secure the bike and rack.

  • Is the Swagman Patrol 2 Bike Rack S64701 Lockable
    Yes, the Swagman Patrol 2 Bike Rack # S64701 that you referenced has locks built into the skewers of the rack so that you can lock bikes to it. If you were to use the 20 mm adapter part # S64715 it would also still be able to lock.

    We do offer both truck bed bike racks and tonneau covers for your 2015 GMC Sierra 1500. Certain combinations of bike racks and covers will not be compatible with each other but certainly there will be combinations of a tonneau and a truck-bed rack that will work well together. If you have a hitch on your Sierra this can give you both high bike carrying capacity via a hitch-mount rack AND avoid any interference with a fully-closed tonneau cover.

    We have several excellent truck bed bike racks that will fit your 2016 Toyota Tacoma and that will work with road or mountain bikes.

  • Truck Bed Bike Rack for a 2017 Ram 1500 with Ram Boxes
    Yes, there are truck bed bike racks you can use in your 2017 Ram 1500 with Ram Boxes. Most of them require drilling though. To avoid that I recommend the Thule Insta-Gater # TH501. It holds 1 bike but you will not have to remove the front wheel or drill to install it. I have included a link to a video review for you.

  • Recommended Truck Bed Bike Rack With Front Wheel Carrying Security
    There are not any specific wheel carriers for the Swagman Patrol 2 Bike Rack for Truck Beds - Fork Mount, # S64701. I reached out to my contact at Swagman and he said that they didn't design it to work this way, but most users will mount the rack 6-8 inches back from the front of the cab and will put their wheel in that space. Using the rack in this way actually locks your front wheel from being removed until you remove the bike itself, so there is even a built in security to using it...

  • Hard Tonneau Cover Bike Rack for 2019 Ram 2500 Short Bed
    For your hard tonneau cover, I recommend using the Saris Traps Fork-Block 3 Bike Rack - SIngle Track - 47" Long # SATRK14-BLK3. This will give you the ability to carry up to 3 bikes and will allow you to remove the bike mount for a less intrusive height difference if you have a folding cover. You can also use the wheel holder # SAWHL1 on this track if desired. If your hard cover isn't folding, then you may want the Yakima Locking BlockHead Single Bike Truck Bed Mounted Rack - Bolt-on...

  • Swagman Truck Bed Bike Rack Recommendation that Fits 15 mm Thru Axles
    There are several truck bed bike racks available that are confirmed to fit 15 mm axles, but the Swagman # S64702 that you referenced is not one of them, nor is there a way to make it work. Closest solution would be the Swagman Patrol part # S64701 which is a fit for 15 mm thru axles.

    The Swagman Patrol 2 Bike Rack # S64701 has an adjustable length from 49 inches to 64 inches so it will fit a 50 inch width. You would not be able to open the Ram Boxes if using this type of truck bed bike rack. And if you made it too tight it could damage the hinges on the Ram Boxes so if you choose this type of rack be very careful. Another option that you might want to consider is a tailgate pad such as the GateMate Pro # TH823PRO. These types of carriers actually work quite well...

    The Swagman Patrol trunk mount bike rack, part # S64701 already comes with a locking skewer. To accommodate your Boost Axles, you'll need the # S64719 adapter. All you'll need to do is to replace the existing 15mm adapter with the # S64719 adapter and you'll be good to go.

  • Carrying a Mountain Bike with a 15-mm Thru-Axle Using a Swagman Truck Bed Carrier
    The Swagman Pick-Up Truck-Bed-Mounted Bike Carrier # S64702 does only include 9-mm skewers. You can add the Swagman Spire # S64706 which will adapt the 15-mm thru-axle fork on your bike to fit the pickup carrier. The Spire isn't quite as convenient as using the Swagman Patrol # S64701 but it is more economical.

For a similar truck bed bike rack I recommend taking a look at the Swagman Patrol # S64701 instead. This rack is compatible with 9-mm quick-release skewers and 15-mm thru-axle forks.

  • How to Lock Bikes for Security When Using the Swagman Pick-Up 2 Bike Carrier # S64702
    The Swagman Pick-Up Truck-Bed-Mounted 2 Bike Carrier # S64702 comes with an integrated lock for the rack itself. If you would like to lock your bikes as well you will need to add a cable lock like part # e98891. You can also add some extra security to the adjustment lever by installing a padlock like part # 131D. If you would rather have a truck bed bike rack that has integrated locks for both the rack and your bikes then the Swagman Patrol # S64701 is what you are looking for. This...

    The two Swagman bike racks you mentioned are very similar. For the money I would have to recommend the # S64702 since will basically do all the same things as the other rack at a fraction of the price. As long as you have 9 mm axles this would be the way to go. The biggest advantage to the part # S64701 is that it can fit 9mm, 15 mm, and thru-axle bikes so it does offer a bit more flexibility. Since you said you have a lefty bike you would need a different rack than those two. You...

If you want to avoid having to take off the front tires to mount the bikes I recommend a tailgate pad such as the Tailwhip, # S64760.
