The Tailwhip tailgate pad provides a quick and easy way to carry up to 4 bikes in the bed of your truck while leaving plenty of space for other cargo. Your bikes' front wheels hang over the tailgate, outside of the truck, and Velcro straps secure your bikes to integrated daisy chain tie-down points. The firm foam pad has a built-in flap for convenient access to your tailgate handle, and it installs easily with included straps.

Integrated Daisy Chain Anchor Points

A series of sewn-on loops along the top of the pad provide anchor points for your bikes. Use the included Velcro straps to secure your bikes to the daisy chain tie-down points to prevent your bikes from shifting during transport.

Easy Access to Tailgate Handle

A built-in flap lets you easily access your tailgate handle without the need to remove the pad. The flap secures with a Velcro fastener.

Heavy-Duty Construction

This pad is made of heavy-duty, waterproof ballistic tarpaulin. A high-density foam core protects your truck's tailgate as well as your bicycles from dents and dings. The fleece backing provides a soft, smooth surface that won't scratch or scuff your tailgate.

Simple Installation

Three tie-down straps wrap around your tailgate to secure the pad in place.

Versatile Pad

This pad isn't just for bikes - you can use it to carry other long loads such as a ladder, kayak, or surfboard. Use the included straps to secure your gear to the integrated tie-down points. You can also connect the straps to secure a wider load or purchase additional straps (S64765 - sold separately) to secure more gear.

Video Transcript for Swagman Truck Bed Bike Racks Review - 2018 Nissan Frontier

Speaker 1: Today in our 2018 Nissan Frontier we're going to test-fitting the Swagman Tailwhip Tailgate Pad and Bike Rack for Mid-Size Trucks. Part number S64761. It's very easy to install. We'll open it up. Just set it on top of our tailgate here. Reach in and crack it open.

Our next step is going to be taking these straps and putting them underneath a tailgate here, pulling them out to other side. Let's leave them in there for now. Then how these attach, you'll put them through the cam buckles and tie them down. You can tie up the excess if you want to. All right.

Now, we can close up our tailgate and we're ready to start receiving our bikes.This can carry up to four bikes or we can also use this for things such as surfboards, paddleboards, or some kayaks and cases. It does come with these straps here to hold our bike into place. We'll go ahead and open that up. It's just a hook and loop fastener. There we go.

Then we'll take our bike and set it into place. Sits down like so. Then we'll go through our little loop here and attach our strap. You're not limited to these straps. You can use others, too, to strap them down.

As I said earlier, you can carry up to four bikes. As far as paddleboards or surfboards, that can be either two to three depending on the size of those.It has decent coverage over our tailgate here. As it's 54 inches long by 16 inches tall by an inch thick, so there's plenty of padding to protect your tailgate once you put that on there. It does also have this flap at the front with more hook and loop straps to get to our tailgate handle if we need to. Now you're ready to go. There you have it for the Swagman Tailwhip Tailgate Pad on our 2018 Nissan Frontier.

The black strap fasteners/clamps are sewn on the inside of the bed which makes it impossible for one person to put it on and difficult for two people. It would be better if they were on the outside of the truck bed. 621708

This bike is of excellent quality. Every time I ride it I am amazed by its ride. It is excellent. 401836

2017 Honda Ridgeline

Very satisfied with this product! It is plug & play out of the box, it takes 1-2 minutes to install, and it fit my Honda tailgate like a glove. The cover is lightweight yet fully protects my trucks finish. The Swagman is an excellent value. 337650

One year later and this product continues to satisfy my needs and impress my mountain bike rider buddies! The quality of stitching and durability is well...the same as when I bought it excellent! I use this product 2-3 times every week.

Review from a similar Tailwhip in Truck Bed Bike Racks

Product was delivered sooner than expected and is of good quality. Fits 2016 Tundra perfectly. Placement took less than 5 mins, and removal takes about 10 seconds. Mine came with a click strap on the flap where the handle/camera are, which is used to fold flap back over tailgate leaving the camera available for use but securing the flap on backside of tailgate. The video does not show that but to me is a great feature. 680728

Review from a similar Tailwhip in Truck Bed Bike Racks

Well made ,simple to use and not over engineered. Perfect fit. Allows me to carry my two mountain bikes along with kayaks during our camping trips. 549040

It’s been through several rain storms and I’s holding up great. Works as advertised. Love Swagman products. Not over engineered just works.

Review from a similar Tailwhip in Truck Bed Bike Racks

This product fits over the tailgate of our full size pick up. We bought this product because we wanted to take our bikes with us on our camping trips. We had a receiver bike rack but needed some way to carry our bikes securely while pulling our travel trailer. We also wanted to be able to carry our grandkids bikes. We have secured at least 5 bikes with the Swagman Tailwhip Tailgate Pad and Bike Rack. The only problem we had was that the velcro tie downs didn't fasten as tight as we would have liked. We have used additional bungie cords to keep the bikes in place. That is the reason this review did not get a 5 star. We are very happy with this product. 485956

This product has held up well. We still recommend it.

Product fits as described. Fast shipping. Works great. Great first time experience with etrailer. 310419

We love this product and use it often. My only frustration is that I have trouble feeding the straps up through the tailgate. You need a second person or someone with long arms to do it easily.

Ask the Experts about this Swagman Truck Bed Bike Racks

  • Is There a Way to Lock a Bike to Truck with Tailgate Pad Bike Rack
    With a tailgate bike rack like the Swagman Tailwhip part # S64761 you really only could lock it with a cable lock like the part # e98891 ran through the frame of the bikes and then through the safety chain loops of the hitch.

  • Load Assisted Kayak Carriers for 2019 Honda Pilot for 2 Kayaks
    The Thule Hullavator Kayak Carriers # TH898 weigh 40-lbs each by themselves so the two empty carriers alone will consume half of the Pilot's rated 165-lb roof capacity. While there are some lightweight kayaks out there most weigh 40-lbs or more apiece. Apart from the weight concern there is the matter of space; each Hullavator requires 38-inches of space on the crossbars so the Pilot would have to be fitted with very long bars. Even the longest aftermarket roof rack bars made for your...

  • Truck Bed Bike Rack for 2015 Toyota Tacoma for Carrying 4 Bikes
    The only solution we offer for a truck bed bike rack for your 2015 Toyota Tacoma that has cargo management rails for carrying up to 4 bikes is the Swagman Tailwhip part # S64761 which is a confirmed fit. The # UG2500-4 is not a confirmed fit so I cannot recommend it.

  • Recommendation for Carrying Bikes in Bed of 2017 Honda Ridgeline without Drilling Into Truck Bed
    I have a solution to carry your bikes in the bed of your 2017 Honda Ridgeline that will not require bolting to the truck bed, but the Thule Insta-Gater # TH501 is not confirmed or guaranteed to work in your truck bed. The best solution I have for you is the Swagman Tailwhip Tailgate Pad and Bike Rack # S64761. This tailgate pad allows you to carry your bikes over the tailgate of your truck, does not require any drilling, and will not require the bike's front wheel to be removed. The...

  • How to Carry 2 Kayaks on a 2015 Toyota Tacoma
    There are several different ways you can carry 2 kayaks with your 2015 Toyota Tacoma. First, you could put them in the bed of the truck and use a tailgate pad such as # S64761 to protect both the truck and the kayaks and to secure the kayaks to the tailgate and pad. Another option is to utilize your trailer hitch (as long as it is a 2 inch hitch) and half of a roof rack. It sounds a little strange but if you put one crossbar on the roof and then used the Yakima LongArm, # Y01149-1150,...

  • Truck Bed Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2017 Honda Ridgeline and Bike with Fenders
    The Thule Insta-Gater # TH501 could be used on a bike with a fender provided that it does not clamp down on the fender and not because it could lead to corrosion but because the fender is not a secure place to ratchet down the hook. The truck bed rack options are limited for the 2017 Honda Ridgeline but the Tailwhip # S64761 is a great option. I know you mentioned not wanting something like this but they are actually more versatile than you might think. It protects the truck and securely...

  • Option For Carrying Kayak Or Surfboard In Truck Bed
    I see you got the RockyMounts LoBall Bike Rack for Truck Bed # RKY1097. We do not have a kayak or surfboard carrier that mounts in the truck bed like the RockyMounts. If you are not installing a roof rack to carry the kayak or surfboard we do have a way to carry them in the bed of your truck. We carry tailgate pads like part # SR26457 for full-size and part # S64761 for mid-size trucks. These are pads that are attached to the tailgate and you then carry the board or kayak as shown in...

Part # S64760 is for full-size pickups and measures 61-inches wide x 20-1/2-inches tall while part # S64761 is intended for mid-size trucks and measures 54-inches wide x 16-inches tall. Both install using the three included tie down straps and either one will be compatible with the Ram Box feature on your pickup.

  • Tailgate Pad for Use with DeeZee Truck Bed Mat DZ86965 on 2017 Nissan Frontier
    Thank you for your many purchases from etrailer, including that for the Dee Zee Custom-Fit Truck Bed Mat # DZ86965 which is a confirmed fit for your 2017 Nissan Frontier with 6-foot bed. Dee Zee does not offer a matching rubber tailgate pad like the bed mat but there are products offered that can provide such protection. Other kits for your truck such as the Bedrug custom liner kit # BRN05KCK includes a tailgate pad, but this product uses different construction - carpet-like material...

  • Will the Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad and Bike Rack Really Fit a 2019 Honda Ridgeline
    Yes, I can confirm the Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad and Bike Rack part # TH823PRO is a fit for a 2019 Honda Ridgeline. In fact, we even tested the older Thule GateMate Tailgate Pad and Bike Rack on this model which was the same size and I have attached that video for you. I would be a bit caution of looking for measurements online as you never really know where they are taken. That said, I appreciate you doing your own research but there is no need to worry about this one as the Thule...

  • Truck Bed Bike Racks for a Toyota Tacoma with Soft Tri-Fold Tonneau Cover
    To avoid having to remove the Tonneau cover from your Toyota Tacoma you could use a tail gate pad carrier such as # S64761. With it the front bike wheels will hang over the tail gate and the bikes secure to the pad. The pad protects the tail gate. For a single bike you can use the Insta-Gator # TH501 which holds the front wheel of the bike and the whole bike will stay in the truck bed. Either of these options will work without you having to modify or remove the Tonneau cover. I have...

  • Truck Bed Bike Rack for a 2014 Nissan Frontier with Utili-Track System
    We have several bike rack options for the bed of a 2014 Nissan Frontier with the Utili-Track system which I have linked for you. But to avoid having to drill or take wheels off I recommend one of the tailgate pads such as # S64761. They actually work quite well, are easy to load, and can be used to protect the tailgate from other things like lumber. We have bed tie downs but none specifically for the Utili-Track system.

  • 2016 Chevy Colorado 4 Bike Rack Recommendation
    For carrying up to 4 bikes in the bed of your 2016 Chevy Colorado the Topline bike rack part # UG2500-4 would be an excellent rack that has been confirmed as a fit. This rack will stand the bikes up in the bed of the truck like what you will see in the review video I attached for the rack. The other option is a tailgate pad rack like the Swagman part # S64761 that will allow you to set the bikes over the tailgate. If it were me I would go with the Topline though since it clamps securely...

  • Can DeeZee Ladder Rack & Swagman Patrol or Similar Rack Fit at Same Time on 2017 Chevy Colorado
    If you are talking about a bed-mount bike rack like the Patrol # S64701 then you would want to remove it prior to installing the DeeZee ladder rack # DZ951551. Otherwise it can affect the alignment of the ladder rack and the 2 parts have not been tested together so how each would perform is unknown. I recommend using a tail gate pad such as the Tailwhip # S64761. This will allow you to safely transport the bikes while protecting the truck and the ladder rack and Tailwhip will not interfere...
