Yakima Gatekeeper Medium Size Diagram

Note: For determining the proper fit on older full-size trucks, measure the tailgate from the top, inner edge to the bottom of the outer panel. If the measurement is less than 27" the medium Gatekeeper (Y07410) will provide the best fitment. If greater, the large Gatekeeper will better suit your application.

Video Transcript for Yakima GateKeeper Tailgate Pad and Bike Carrier Review

Hey guys, it's Randy here at etrailer again. Today, we're taking a look at Yakima's Gatekeeper. This is designed to be a tailgate style six bike rack or tailgate pad. They've designed them to work on full size trucks like what we have here today, so this one's going to be 62 inches wide, but they also make them for the midsize and compact truck, that one's going to be 53 inches wide.Now, tailgate pads like this, we see used a lot in your mountain bike competitions and things like that, getting the bikes from the bottom of the hill up to the top. You can get a lot of them tucked in here, and since we're not keeping the whole bike in the bed of the truck it saves us some room for some of the other stuff we'll need. These are also going to come in really handy for transporting longer items, whether that's going to be ladders, lumber, pipes, things like that.

With these nicer trucks, they usually have nice bed rails around them and not too many people want to tear them up anymore. By putting this on there and then allowing those items to rest down on it gives us a lot of protection.Now, the full size truck version is going to have six sit tight cradles. The compact or midsize truck, it's going to have five. These are designed so we can open them up and get that front tube of our bike laid in there and get it cinched down. You can see there's a lot of padding here, so even rougher roads, we're not going to have to worry about stress and strain on our frames, and it's a soft material both here on the top and on the bottom, so when we're transporting our bikes, whether it's carbon fiber, painted, something like that, we're not going to have to worry about any scratches or damage.Now, you can see to hold it in place it's pretty straightforward.

We're using three straps. These are going to come in between the tailgate and bed of our truck. They go into the keeper there, and then they get cinched down. This one really holds on the truck really well. There's no shifting, no movement with it really at all.Now, this is a nice, thick pad.

I'd say it's at least 3/4 of an inch thick to give us really good padding so we don't have to worry about damage on our tailgate, and this is a very durable nylon. It's got just a little bit of a texture to it there, it feels nice and thick, it feels sturdy. You can see all of our seams, they're stitched up really well, so I don't think this material, we're going to have to worry about too much with UV fade, it's going to stand up to the elements really well, offer some moisture resistance there so it's not soaking in. Then on the bottom side, we'll take a better look at it here in a minute when we show you how to install, but you can see it offers that felt material there. That's going to, up against the paint of that truck's going to protect it really well, won't have to worry about it.Now, to give you an idea of the overall size the full size is going to be 62 inches full width, and the flap on the back is going to be 20 inches.

The thickness side to side, that's going to be seven. When we go to the compact truck model, our width is going to be 53 inches, the height here at the back 17-1/2, and width is going to be a total of five.Now, something else I really like about the Gatekeeper that we don't always see on tailgate style bike racks like this is this really large opening back here. This is just a flap, you can pull this up, set it over, but that's going to give us good access into the handle for our tailgate release, but also for backup cameras if we need to see where we're going while we're backing up, you can open that up and that's going to give us full visibility. A lot of the other ones, they're going to be much smaller than this, so trucks that have handles that are down further, kind of limits your access to.Now, the Gatekeeper also gets really good reviews from our customers. It's like Sue said, "We ordered for a family vacation where we pull a travel trailer with our pickup and needed a place for all the bikes. It works really well and kept all bikes stable with no damage over a very long trip. Great product." Or Shawn said, "Great bike carrier. We carry four bikes and this keeps them secure, even on dirty and bumpy roads. Takes a few minutes to get it on the tailgate correctly, but once on, it works great."Now, when we compare the gatekeeper to other tailgate pad style bike racks like this, I see a few things that stand out to me. One is the width of the strap that actually secures it to the tailgate. This is a really nice wide strap. Generally, those are going to be a little bit thinner. I also like the way the cradles are contoured and designed to hold a bike frame. Most of the other ones we're going to see are just going to be a pad there, no real indention there for that to hang onto.I also really like how big the opening is here to get to our tailgate release and also so we have plenty of vision out of our backup camera. Now, there are other truck bed style bike racks out there. Typically, those are going to be like, a fork mount style bike rack. We can mount them to the side of the truck or into the bed of the truck. The thing I like about this one over that type is that this doesn't require us to remove the front wheel, it doesn't require us to do anything other than just throw them in, strap them down, and get back up the hill.Then, to begin the installation of course we'll want to open up our Gatekeeper here. You can see we've got the nice felt side, this is going to go down towards the paint just to keep our vehicle's paint protected. Going to set this right up and over. Now we'll just open up our access door there, it's going to allow us to slightly open our tailgate, and we're going to pass that strap in and underneath our tailgate so it comes up here in our bed. Once that's fed through, we get access to our clip here. We're going to feed it through the middle and we're going to bring it down the side closest to that rounded tab. That'll give us the bite that we need. All right, get that started and centered, then we'll do our other two.Once we have each of those three straps started, snugged up a little bit, we just want to make sure that we've got it in the position that we want. Then we'll begin to cinch those down the rest of the way. Once we have those straps cinched down, you'll see everything's locked in place really well. There's no sliding, there's no movement, so we won't have to worry about the keeper moving as we're heading down the road.Now, to get the keeper ready to load up our bikes, we want to open up the straps, just like that. We're going to lay that front tube right in there, that'll allow us to secure it. Once that's laid in place there, just bring our strap back over and we can use the hook and loop to get everything secured. Now, our keepers here are soft and they're not going to damage paint or carbon fiber frames, both the upper and lower have padding to it. You can see right down there, even if we are going over some rougher terrain or something like that, it's going to help to really absorb that shock well for us.That's going to complete our look at the Yakima line of Gatekeeper tailgate pads and bike carrier.

Ask the Experts about this Yakima Truck Bed Bike Racks

Do you have a question about this Truck Bed Bike Rack?


  • Truck Bed Bike Rack for 2013 Ford F-150
  • An E-bike is not meant to be used with a fork-mounted bike rack. There may be a way for you to fit them in your truck bed though if you let me know what year your F-150 is.

  • Truck Bed Bike Rack for a 2015 Toyota Tundra with a BAKFlip Tonneau Cover
  • The mounting rails for your BAKFlip Tonneau cover would be in the way so you would not be able to use the Swagman rack # S64702. What I recommend is a tailgate pad such as the Yakima GateKeeper # Y07411. This will not only hold the bikes but also protect the tailgate plus it can be used to secure other items you may need to carry. the pad is not difficult to install or remove so when you are done biking and want to close the Tonneau cover you can do so with relative ease. I have linked...

  • No Drill Truck Bed Ladder Rack Recommendation for 2019 Toyota Tundra with Tonneau
  • The best solution for your 2019 Toyota Tundra that does not require drilling and is compatible with your tonneau is the Yakima GateKeeper part # Y07411 which fits over the rear tailgate and easily allows bikes to be loaded onto it and secured. Check out the review video I attached. None of the bed rail style of bike racks will fit with the tonneau cover rails which is why I recommended against that route.

  • Can Yakima Biker Bar Install in Truck Bed with Tonneau Cover Installed
  • Thank you for the picture of your tonneau cover rails. Since they go above the top of the bed rails you would need to remove them to install the Yakima BikerBar Truck Bed Mounted 2 Bike Carrier # Y01143. An easy option to get around leaving the rails installed would be a tailgate mounted bike rack like the Yakima GateKeeper part # Y07411. I attached a review video for this bike rack for you to check out as well.

  • Will the Yakima GateKeeper Fit a 2018 Ford F-150
  • The Yakima GateKeeper Tailgate Pad part # Y07411 is a confirmed fit for your 2018 Ford F-150. I was able to confirm this with the manufacturer. The best feature about the GateKeeper is its large tailgate handle opening. The reason for this is because most of the newer trucks have a backup camera built into the tagtele handle and they are all in a different spot so the GateKeeper will allow for the use of nearly all backup camera systems without any restrictions. It also has a nice felt...

  • Truck Bed Bike Rack Recommendation for 2019 Toyota Tundra with Tonneau Cover
  • Since your truck has a tonneau cover your best option for a bike rack would be a tailgate pad style bike rack like the Yakima GateKeeper part # Y07411 which is a confirmed fit. Basically this slips over the tailgate and would allow you to carry up to 6 bikes. Check out the review video link I attached for this rack as well for more info.

  • Tailgate Pad and Bike Rack For 2019 Ram 1500 With RamBox
  • There are tailgate bike rack pads that are compatible with the 2019 Ram 1500 with RamBox but the Yakima Tailgate Pad part # Y07411 is not a fit because of the way it attaches. I recommend the Thule 53" GateMate Pro part # TH823PRO for the 2019 1500 with RamBox. Thule has confirmed their tailgate pad to fit with the RamBox.

  • Tailgate Pad Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2019 Ram 1500
  • For your 2019 Ram 1500, I recommend the Softride Shuttle Pad Tailgate Bike Carrier for Full-Size Pickup Trucks # SR26457. This pad has the integrated bike straps to secure the bikes so they remain secured to the pad which is attached to the tailgate. It also has the nice gate latch cover to further protect the tailgate. This is compatible if you have the RamBox or not. If you do not have the RamBox, the most popular option is the Yakima GateKeeper Tailgate Pad and Bike Carrier for...

  • Recommended Tailgate Pad and Bike Rack for a 2018 Ford F-150 with Backup Camera
  • I do have an option for your 2018 Ford F-150 but the Thule GateMate Pro Tailgate Pad and Bike Rack part TH824PRO would not be the best choice for you due to the size of the tailgate handle opening. Instead, I recommend the Yakima GateKeeper Tailgate Pad and Bike Carrier part # Y07411 which has a very large tailgate handle opening as you can see in the attached photo and will allow you to still use your handle and backup camera without any interference. The integrated tailgate step you have...

  • Tailgate Pad Recommendation For 2016 Colorado Pickup Truck
  • The best way to choose a tailgate pad is to take a quick measurement of the width of your tailgate. If your tailgate width is 60 inches or less, I recommend part # Y07410 since it is 53 inches wide. If your tailgate is wider than 61 inches then go with part # Y07411. I have attached a link to a product review video you can check out. You will need to roll the Tonneau cover back or remove it to place the soft pad on the tailgate.

  • Will 62 Inch Wide Yakima GateKeeper Work on 2018 Silverado 60-1/2 Inch Wide Tailgate
  • The Yakima GateKeeper is only 1-1/2 inches wider than the tailgate, which is only 3/4 of an inch on each end. Overlapping by such a tiny amount won't cause any harm whatsoever. The # Y07411 GateKeeper will work perfectly on your truck. If you use the provided link, you can see a product demonstration featuring the GateKeeper.
