Solved our problem of how to bring our 6 bikes along with us on long trips. Super easy to load and unload. Very happy with this purchase.


Comments
Still using and working great. My only issue is installation is a bit tricky, which does sometimes mean I dont bother to use if were not certain to need the bikes. Ultimately though its worth the effort and solved our problem.

Great material, inside smooth will not scratch the tailgate. Easy install. I ordered for full size, truck however if I had to do it again I would choose smaller width. I have rails mounted to the inside of bed for a bed cover. The gate mate really fits snug, having to slam the gate to lock. Depending style of bike the down tube may not snug tight. Yes I would buy again. Good price.

2019 Pontiac Trans Sport Van

Awesome bike transport. I did not want a truck hitch type so this was a great easy option. Took less than 5 minutes to install and the bikes were certainly secure during transport.



by:

Always impressed with etrailer. They have an abundance of knowledge and are extremely responsive. Highly recommend!



by:
2016 Toyota Tundra

Totally impressed. This thing not only protects my bike but also my truck. Set up was easy, the padding is plentiful, the mesh storage pockets are a huge plus. Really impressed with the quality. Even was able to work around my roll up Lund tonneau with no mods needed.



by:

Bit of a pain to lift bikes onto the tailgate but for someone who regularly transports 4-6 bikes from hone to the campsite, this thing is perfect. It claims you can do 8 bikes but it would be very difficult to get bike 7 and 8 into the truck.

If you need to live 6 bikes about this is the best solution I have found.



by:

This tailgate mat works great, i have no issue with bikes moving while driving. I use it for several different frame sizes from med frame road bikes to large frame fat tires and an XL 29er. It holds them all without a problem. The soft material has caused no scratching to my tailgate and those who say it will dont wash their truck. Service and delivery from etrailer was quick and competitively priced as usual. I have recommended and would buy again.



by:

The package was delivered on time and fit my Ram 3500 perfectly. The team at etrailer kept you informed every step of the process from order confirmation to shipping confirmation and delivery confirmation. You can't ask for better communication than that.



by:

As always, EXCELLENT FAST shipping from etrailer. put this on 2011 silverado, for an aventon ebike and a regular bike, works great, no issues.

Excellent experience and fast shipping. Great quality product. Very pleased

2016 Ford F-150

Overall this is a great option for a quickly installed and secure way to haul bicycles in a pick-up truck. One thing I did not consider was the fact I had a tonneau cover on my 2016 Ford F-150 from Gator. The rails for the cover overlap into the bed of the truck an inch and a half, but the Thule tailgate pad is flexible enough to work under the rails to get the tailgate closed. Installation takes 10 minutes alone and 5 with help. Great product and great support from eTrailer.com!



by:

Great product, great service. Thanks!!



by:

My husband was looking for something easier to haul the bikes around. Much easier to put on and off to take the truck thru the car wash. This way the truck is protected from getting scratched by the bikes. Thanks

Great customer service!

Review from a similar GateMate Pro in Truck Bed Bike Racks


Well, I’m not crazy about it for my application; but It would work better for full size pick up applications. It was a too wide for my Jeep Gladiator and was difficult to install, as well as use the tailgate when it was attached. I like the access flap to the gate latch. The straps tend to fall out, I’ve lost a couple already. They are also awkward to use for strapping the bike down as the Velcro hooks and nap are on opposite sides of the strap.

Review from a similar GateMate Pro in Truck Bed Bike Racks


I only gave this 3 stars because the straps that fasten the bike to the pad is to long to use on a tube for a normal road bike. The straps are 16 inches long and it wraps around my bikes twice leaving no room to fasten the strap together. I thought this seemed strange so I called etrailer customer service which gave me Thule service number and they seem to understand the issue but had the only solution of using a zip tie. It seems the straps work for a Mountain bike but not for smaller tubed bikes. Just keep this in mind when ordering. I also think you will need to secure the back of the bike if you are only hauling 1 or 2 so the not flop around.

Review from a similar GateMate Pro in Truck Bed Bike Racks


Tracking order was detailed and exacting. I've not seen that with any other company. I put the tailgate pad on my new 2021 Honda Ridgeline, then tried an electric bike on it. It works perfectly and protects both the bike and the truck tailgate. So far I'm very impressed with the product.

Review from a similar GateMate Pro in Truck Bed Bike Racks


I had spent weeks looking for the right purchase to carry bikes for my family and I. This solution is hilariously simple and perfect. I carry two full size and two kid bikes in my Honda Ridgeline. Such a convenience not messing around with a hitch rack.

  • Can Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad be Used with the Tailgate Down on a 2012 Ford F-150
    The Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad # TH824PRO will be strapped to the tailgate whether it is up or down so you could have the tailgate down with cargo in the bed while driving and it would be fine.

  • Will Using the Thule GateMate Pro Truck Bed Bike Carrier Block a Backup Camera
    If the backup camera is housed in the tailgate handle then you would have to hold open the flap on the Thule GateMate Pro # TH824PROso it isn't blocking the camera's view. You could tuck it under a strap above it temporarily as needed. We have a lot of truck bed bike rack options, see link. If you can tell me the year, make, and model of the truck and how many bikes you want to carry I can make some specific recommendations.

  • Will Thule Gate Mate Work with Townie Cruiser Bike
    Yes, the Thule Gate Mate Tailgate Pad Bike Rack part # TH824PRO would work just fine with a Townie Cruiser bike. I attached an install video that shows the rack installed on a Ram truck for you to check out as well.

  • Truck Bed Roof Rack Recommendation for 2019 Ram 3500 with Ram Boxes
    For your 2019 Ram 3500 that has the Ram Boxes you'd want the Thule Gate Mate part # TH824PRO which fits over the rear tailgate and gives you a place to mount a couple bikes. The other styles of bike racks that would clamp to a bed rail cannot be used with your truck due to the Ram Boxes.

  • Will the Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad Work On a 2019 Ram 1500
    I have a few options for you to carry bikes in the bed of your 2019 Ram 1500 (All Models). The best option for you would be dependent on how many bikes you need to haul. If you need to haul multiple bikes then the Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad part # TH824PRO is your best option. There won't be any issue using the Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad on a 2019 Ram 1500 with curved tailgate. There is also a cutout for models with the tailgate backup camera and padding to protect both your bikes...

  • Will the Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad Work With a Truck Bed Cover
    The Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad part # TH824PRO is an excellent option for a 2002 Toyota Tundra. In regards to compatibility with a truck bed cover, you'd need to have the cover folded up or rolled back when using the tailgate pad. The cover would not be able to folded/rolled shut with the tailgate pad in place. That said, you could easily store the tailgate pad in the truck bed while not in use.

  • Will the Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad Fit a 2019 GMC Sierra 1500
    Yes, the Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad part # TH824PRO which is an excellent option to carry bikes inside a truck bed without worrying about them flopping around damaging both the truck and bikes will fit a 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 (All Models) just fine. The Thule GateMate Pro is super easy to install and it folds up nicely for storage. It's also very universal so you can bring it with you on your new truck when the time comes.

  • Can Thule GateMate Fit 2021 Ram 1500 with Access Vanish Tonneau
    There would be enough clearance for the Thule GateMate part # TH824PRO to fit on your 2021 Ram 1500 with the Access Vanish tonneau you have to not interfere with the rail kit.

  • Can Thule GateMate Pro be Used to Carry Fat Tire e-Bikes
    The Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad # TH824PRO will fit your 2016 Toyota Tundra and really just adds some padding to your tailgate and a way to keep your bikes from bouncing around your truck bed. Basically as long as your e-Bikes can fit over your tailgate this pad will work for you! The only place where the bikes are secured at is along the top of the tailgate where the frame of the bike will be making contact (see attached photo). The hook and loop fasteners and be moved along the width...

  • Can Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Bike Rack Be used with 75 lb E-Bikes with Fat Tires
    The Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad for Full-Size Trucks # TH824PRO that you referenced does not have a weight capacity or a tire width limit so it would easily work great with a 75 lb e-bike with 4-inch wide fat tires.

  • How Tight Should Straps of Thule GateMate Pro be On Tailgate
    Thule does not specify a tightness for the straps of the Thule GateMate Pro # TH823PRO on trucks like your 2019 Honda Ridgeline as that's hard to do given the nature of the strap setup but what you'll want to do is tighten them snugly by hand using your best judgment. There are two sizes for this rack though and you should make sure you don't have the larger # TH824PRO which wouldn't fit your tailgate well and might be why you'd have issues tightening it down. I attached a review video...

  • Thule Truck Bed Tailgate Pad and Bike Rack That Fits 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
    We do have a Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad and Bike Rack that fits a 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500, though it is a different one than you mentioned. The correct fit for a 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 is the Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad and Bike Rack # TH824PRO. I have added some photos showing this on a '19 Silverado 1500 as well as a link to a video review showing it in use on this same truck.

  • Recommended Tailgate Bike Pad for 2019 Ram 1500
    The Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad for Full-Size Trucks part # TH824PRO is what I recommend for a 2019 Ram 1500. It can hold up to 8 bikes, it has a cutout for the handle and or backup camera, and the protective pads underneath will ensure there are no scratches to the paint. In regards to the tonneau cover, there should be no issues with it rolled up/retracted.

  • Wile Thule TH824PRO GateMate PRO Affect Turning Radius While Towing a Trailer
    If you check out the video I've linked for you, you can see that when the bikes install, the front bike wheels are carried at an angle, so that the front bike wheels aren't taking up very much room at all between the tailgate and where the trailer would sit. The tires wouldn't extend past the rear surface of the tailgate by more than a foot, which would in no way impede your trailer turning radius. You'll see what I mean when you view the video. The Thule GateMate PRO is a pretty innovative...

  • Can I Use the Thule GateMate Pro on a Bike With a Large Frame Diameter
    Typically you would need to remove the battery pack from an e-bike to carry it in your 2021 Ford F-150 using the Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad for Full-Size Trucks - Up to 8 Bikes - 60" Wide # TH824PRO. The great thing about the GateMate is that the hook and loop straps are 16 inches long overall and would allow you to carry thicker frame bikes; they can also be slid up and down to allow some flexibility in where you can put the straps on the bike. The straps on the GateMate Pro would...

  • Truck Bed Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2012 Ford F-150 with Tonneau Cover
    Most truck tonneau covers have rails that will interfere with an item like the Swagman truck bed bike rack # S64702. The L-shaped brackets on either end need to set directly against the bed rails. If anything is in the way you will not be able to use this particular bike rack. But not to worry, there are other options. Another option is the Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad and Bike Rack, # TH824PRO . Bascially it is a mat that goes over the tailgate to protect it and you can attach bikes...

  • Truck Bed Bike Rack for a 2013 Ram 1500 with Tonneau Cover
    The Topline truck bed bike rack # UG2500 is not likely to fit on a 2013 Ram 1500 with a tonneau cover because the clamps would not be able to fit around the rails for the cover. We do have numerous other options that you could use. The Thule GateMate Pro # TH824PRO is one option. The front wheels of the bikes will rest over the tailgate. The truck is protected by the Gate Mate and the bikes will secure to it. I have linked a video showing the Gate Mate on a 2013 Ram for you.

  • Tailgate Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2014 Ram 1500
    I spoke with my contact at Thule and she said that you could definitely install more than 2 bikes on the Thule Gate Mate Tailgate Pad # TH824PRO, the only issue will be the weight of the bikes on the tailgate which would be the same for this rack or the Softride Shuttle Pad Tailgate Bike Carrier # SR26457 that you also referenced. Since the Thule rack has been tested and fits the tailgate of your 2014 Ram 2500 without any issues this would be the tailgate pad I would recommend for you....

  • Tailgate Pad Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2015 Ram 1500
    Personally I like the Softride Shuttle Pad # SR26457 more than the Thule Gate Mate part # TH824PRO because it has the loops that allow a bike to easily be secured to the pad. Thule doesn't have the straps to secure the bikes to the pad, and most likely they wouldn't be necessary. But for added peace of mind I prefer the Softride. I attached review videos for both racks for you to check out.

  • Will Inno Truck Bed Bike Carrier Fit 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 with Roll-Up Tonneau Cover
    The Inno Velo Gripper part # INRT201 installs where the tonneau cover rails are installed so it will not fit with the rails. You could still carry bikes in the bed of your Silverado using the Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad for Full-Size Trucks - Up to 8 Bikes - 60" Wide Item # TH824PRO.

  • Tailgate Pad Recommendation for 2019 Ram 1500 to Carry Stand Up Paddleboard
    We do! I recommend checking out the Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad for Full-Size Trucks # TH824PRO which is 60" wide. This should fit most of the width of your tailgate and while it's typically used for bikes, it can be used for other applications like your paddleboard as well. You'll just need to find a way to secure the paddleboard to the tailgate pad. Attached is a review video for you to check out.

  • How Far Out Does the Malone Axis Truck Bed and Roof Load Extender # MPG907 Extend
    On the Malone Axis Truck Bed and Roof Load Extender # MPG907 the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole to the furthest edge on the carrier is 53 inches. So to the nearest part of the up right it will be approximately 51 inches. By my calculations your 10 foot, 5 inch kayaks will overhang the bed by 41 inches. That means if you were to slide the kayaks all the way in the upright on this carrier would still be about 10 inches away. All of the similar extenders are a bit too long...

    We do have an option for you.

The reason for this is that the only way to use a hitch mounted kayak carrier and a hitch mounted bike rack at the same time you will need to use a dual hitch adapter which will...

  • Which Tailgate Pad Bike Rack Fits a 2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac
    The Softride Tailgate Pad, # SR26461, for mid size trucks is probably going to be the best option. It measures 54 inches long so compare that to the tailgate on your 2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac to determine fit. The model for a full size truck, # SR26457, is 61 inches long. Thule also has a similar product, # TH823PRO for a 54 inch or # TH824PRO for a 62 inch. All of these items work in basically the same way. They fit over the tailgate, have a flap for the tailgate handle. They strap...
