Note: This dual-arm rack reduces the need for a bike frame adapter bar (sold separately) to mount a children's, women's, or alternative frame bicycle. However, to mount certain bikes or to keep your bike level on the rack, a bike adapter bar may be required. Most step-through bikes, dual-suspension bikes, and small children's bikes will require a bike adapter bar.


Thule Gateway XT's spoiler-clearing arced arms

The Thule Gateway XT is a sturdy, 2-bike trunk rack with long, arcing body tubes designed to clear most factory spoilers. Hold Fast cradles with anti-sway cages keep your bikes stable on the rack and help to prevent bike-to-bike contact. The patented FitDial mounting system offers quick and easy setup on most Mercury Mountaineers, and the independently adjustable dual arms let you transport a wide variety of bike sizes and frame styles.


Patented FitDial System

Thule Gateway XT's FitDial System

The patented FitDial system lets you easily adjust the rack body to fit the shape of your trunk. The long, arcing body tubes are designed to fit easily over most factory spoilers, so setup is a snap. Simply press the Quick-Fit levers and rotate the base until the centers of the levers line up with the correct numbers on the dials. These numbers are specified in the instructions included with the rack. Just find your Mercury Mountaineer, identify the correct number, and dial it up.


6-Strap Attachment System

Thule Gateway XT's 6-way nylon security straps

While the FitDial system ensures that the body of the rack is correctly seated on your Mercury Mountaineer, it is the 6 nylon straps that keep the rack anchored in place. The steel hooks on these extra-long straps are nylon coated to prevent scratches on your Mercury Mountaineer, and the straps tighten in place with easy-to-use, backpack-style cinches.


Thule Gateway XT's hook-and-loop strap tabs

Holders with hook-and-loop tabs (similar to Velcro) are included to bind up the excess strap length when the rack is mounted. Simply wrap the holders around the straps to help protect your Mercury Mountaineer from flapping straps.


Molded Foam Pads

Thule Gateway XT's paint-protecting foam pads

Foam pads on the Gateway XT's upper and lower bases grip your trunk or rear hatch to keep the rack firmly in place during transport. The pads are designed to provide friction without leaving scratches and scuff marks on your Mercury Mountaineer.


Hold Fast Cradles with Anti-Sway Cages

Thule Gateway XT's Hold Fast cradles

The Gateway XT has Hold Fast cradles that grip your bike frame at 3 different points - 2 on the top tube and 1 on the seat tube. Built-in anti-sway cages provide bike frame support and help prevent bike-to-bike and bike-to-car contact. The cradles are made of thermoplastic elastomer (TPE), a stretchy, gel-like substance that absorbs road shock and minimizes vibration. Molded grooves in the cradles accommodate brake cables. Reinforced TPE straps keep your bike frames snug in the cradles and cages.


Independently Adjustable Arms

Thule Gateway XT's Cinch Lever adjustment

The Gateway XT has narrowly spaced arms that make loading and unloading bikes hassle free. These arms are independently adjustable with the built-in Cinch-Levers. Just flip the lever up, rotate the arm to the desired position, then flip the lever down to lock the arm in place. This enables you to carry bikes with unique frames, and it helps to keep your bikes level on the rack.


Thule Gateway XT's fold-down arms

The Cinch-Levers also allow you to fold down the arms when the rack is not in use and to fold the rack flat for convenient storage.


Security for Bikes and Rack

To lock your bikes to the rack, you can add a Thule cable lock (TH538XT - sold separately). This cable lock features a One-Key System lock cylinder that can be swapped out to make all your Thule products keyed alike. A passive security trunk strap (TH533 - sold separately) is also available to lock your bike rack to your trunk. This strap is threaded through the frame of the rack and around your trunk lid, securing the rack to your Mercury Mountaineer when the trunk is closed and locked.

Video Transcript for Thule Trunk Bike Racks Review - 2015 Toyota RAV4

Today on our 2015 Toyota Rav 4 we're going test fit of the Thule Gateway XT 2 bike rack part number th9006xt. See we already have our bike already on the rack show you a few features first. All right how the bike is held down we have three straps, two up top, strapped to the side is our anti sway strap. When we want to take it off take off the two off top, the one off the side next. If you want to load it you do the opposite way. We're going to leave the back on to show you a few features here.

Right here we have the two foam padding's so you won't, it won't scratch your vehicle or hurt your windows, also down here we have the same. We have these hook straps that hook up to the top here, they're actually metal with a rubber coating so that it doesn't scratch your vehicle at any time. Also on the side here we have our two side hooks, then we have two hooks that hook up to the bottom of the door, our hatch there as you can see. Now with this particular bike rack, Thule has a fit kit, the fit kit on here is number 8, right here on the side here it'll show you the dial, has numbers from one through 11 the kit for this particular vehicle is 8. How we set that what we do is press in, go to 8 but you want to do that before you put this on the vehicle. Now lets go ahead and take our bike off, I've already said a few things, set this to the side.

Always want to replace your straps so they don't get lost or damaged so let's go ahead and do that. You have your two hooks up here, you have your tighteners and looseners, if you press this button, this lever it actually, you can loosen up the top but to tighten it just pretty much pull until it's tightened. Like I said you have the two on the side the same way, this tightens here and also the bottom, and if you have extra straps so if you want to tie down your bike you have no problem with tying it down. That will be it on for our look on the Thule Gateway XT 2 bike rack part number th9006xt on today's 2015 Toyota Rav 4. Here it is on our test course, first is the slotum area which simulates side to side action like turning the corners or evasive maneuvers. Next are the alternate speed bumps which show you the twisting action like hitting a pot hole, road debris or hitting a curb.

Finally we've got the solid speed bumps which show the up and down action to simulate a parking garage or coming out of your driveway.

Volvo Cross Country

Used this bike rack to drive cross country twice this year. After the first 2 days one of the foam pieces on the bottom support ripped in half, so I duct taped it and it still works, although I shouldn't have had to do that. It also make a dent in my trunk, right under the license plate; although, to be fair, that was during the second road trip after driving through a snow storm in the Rocky Mountains. I think the wind was pressing the bike rack down and that's what ended up denting the car. I also had the issue of the cradles sliding out of place, so that the bikes would end up not being parallel with the trunk, and because of this the bike came OUT of the saddle a couple of times. My saving grace was having used my U-LOCK to lock the bikes together, so the outermost bike that came out of the saddle was locked to the inner bike and thus didn't fly off completely on the highway. It was actually quite a terrifying experience. Overall, I think this is a great bike rack for day trips and easy to use once you get the swing of things. I would not recommend this for anyone driving further than a few hours away. 300505

Heavy-duty construction and well thought out. I use the bike rack on my 2010 Chevy Malibu to carry two mountain bikes. To make sure I don't scratch the trunk paint surface a friend recommended I place micro-fiber clothes under the contact points. Works great. No worries about stability when traveling down the road. Good investment. 251995

2013 Ford Mustang

Today I installed the Gateway XT 2 Bike Carrier - Trunk Mount and used the Thule Bike Adapter Bar - Womens & Alt. Frame Bikes to hang two bikes on the back of my 2013 Mustang, 2 dr, with factory spoiler. I read the instructions over breakfast. It seemed pretty simple, and it was. Of course, being the first time installing the carrier it was a little slow as I figured out what went where but referring back to the instructions made the install go smoothly. A couple points of note: 1) Not too comfortable that the strap clips won't scratch the paint. They're coated but not padded. I'll probably glue a thin rubber padding to the inside of the top and bottom clips. The side clips just barely slide on and there is no room for any additional padding. 2) Discovered that I needed to secure the inside pedal upward to ensure it did not bang against the bumper. I used a mini-bungee cord but weaving the supplied tie down strap might do the trick. Not sure (yet) which is fastest/easiest method. Definitely need the tie down strap to keep the front wheel of the inside bike from beating against the car. 3) Although the Adapter Bar does hold my wife's bike level, the bar at its shortest position is a few inches too long leaving gaps at the front and back. There did not appear to be a way to lock the bar length and only the ripple straps to keep the bar from vibrating looser. Hopefully not a problem on long drives or bumpy roads. I'm attaching a couple photos from the install process that you are free to use. Sincerely, JP Hanover, PA 407343

The bike rake does fit my car though my 2015 Prius has a spoiler on the back of the car and I had to change the manufacture suggestion setting of 7 to and 8 to get it off the spoiler. All in all I'm very happy I found etrailer they were very helpful and got me my order on time. thanks from Canton, CT. 275037

2014 Ford Taurus

I just used the Thule Gateway XT 2 trunk mount bike rack along with a Swagman DLX bike adapter bar on my 2014 Taurus to transport my son's mountain bike over 900 miles from KY to FL. It preformed excellently and was very stable. It was a little tight because of the bikes frame, so to be safe I used the outside mount on the rack to carry the bike so it would not hit the bumper. I also recommend tying (in my case, bungie cord) the bike to the Thule frame so it cannot rock into the car's trunk or bumper, especially at highway speeds. But with a few simple precautions, even long distance transportation was a breeze! 221775

I only used it once as it scratched the paint on my car. Im going to see about putting a trailer hitch on my car to enable use of an upright rack. Frankly Im sorry I bought it.
David - 04/19/2019

Let me begin by saying that anytime you have a piece of equipment strapped to the painted finish of a vehicle, the potential for scratches or dents exists, no getting around it. This being said, the risks can be minimized by putting as little weight as possible on the racks and by observing the rack's weight capacity, by installing the rack exactly as described in the instructions, and by keeping the surfaces where the rack and vehicle touch absolutely clean. A good coat of quality car wax where the surfaces meet would add extra protection. I typically tell people that if they have a newer vehicle and are concerned about scratching the finish, a hitch and hitch mounted bike rack is without a doubt the way to go.

I have a 2015 Dodge Dart. It was easy to install and it holds my GT mountain bike and my wife's Nishki Mountain bike. It held the bike's firmly and to my delight, it did not allow my car to get scratched while driving. The only reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5, I wish the straps were retractable. It comes with ties but it doesn't look good. I know Thule makes one but it was more than I wanted to spend. 280885

  • Recommended Trunk Mounted Bike Rack for 2019 Subaru Crosstrek
    Thule currently doesn't have any trunk mounted bike racks compatible with 2018 and 2019 models of Subaru Crosstrek so I don't recommend # TH9006XT. They determined a fit issue. My recommendation for a similar rack that is a confirmed fit is the Yakima HangOut 2 Bike Rack - Trunk Mount - Adjustable Arms # Y02637. This is a great option if you won't have a spoiler. If you will have a spoiler then I instead recommend the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 Bike Carrier for Vehicles w/ Spoilers...

  • Comparing Thule Gateway and Thule Passage Trunk Mount Bike Racks for 2012 Chevrolet Traverse
    Both the Thule Gateway # TH9006XT and the Thule Passage # TH910XT are high quality bike racks that will fit your 2012 Chevy Traverse. The main difference between these racks is that the arms on the Gateway rack are able to be adjusted independently. Both racks have arms that fold down for storage, but the Gateway's arms adjust to allow you to carry some alternative frame bikes without an adapter bar. However, some alternative, children's, and women's style frames may still require an adapter...

  • Choosing Between Saris Bones # SA805 and Thule Gateway # TH9006XT on 2014 Chevy Malibu
    If I personally had to choose between the two, I'd go with the Thule # TH9006XT Gateway. I actually prefer the looks of the # SA805BL Saris Bones, but I don't care for the way that the weight of the bikes and the rack rest on feet that small. Spreading the weight over a larger area like the Archway does lessens the chances that the vehicle will be damaged, and makes the whole unit more stable. Both rack manufacturer offers a limited lifetime warranty, so you really can't go wrong either...

  • Easy to Use Trunk Mount Bike Carrier for a 2005 Toyota Prius
    We have numerous trunk mount bike carriers that will fit your 2005 Toyota Prius, see link to the right. But for a rack that is the easiest to install/remove and use I recommend the Thule Raceway # TH9001PRO. This rack uses just 4 retractable cables instead of 6 straps like other racks so it is very easy to install and remove. Also, it folds relatively flat so it is easy to store. The rack also features locks to lock the rack to the vehicle and a cable lock to lock the bike in the last...

  • Will Thule Gateway 2 Bike Carrier # TH9006 Fit My 2011 Toyota Prius
    I checked with Thule and the Thule Gateway 2 Bike Carrier # TH9006XT will indeed work on your 2011 Toyota Prius. The top portion of the rack will actually go over the spoiler and it will not interfere with the installation. I attached a review video for this product for you to check out. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes you may be interested in purchasing a Thule Bike Adapter Bar # TH982XT

    Both the Thule Passage 2 Bike Carrier, part # TH910XT, and the Thule Gateway 2, part # TH9006XT, will fit your 2002 Ford Escape. I have linked an installation video for each of these carriers. I have also provided a link to our product page showing all brands and models of 2-bike carriers that can fit your Escape.

  • Will Trunk Bike Rack Work on 2015 Nissan Versa Note without Damaging it
    The Thule part # TH9006XT is a confirmed fit for your 2015 Nissan Versa Note. The key to using trunk racks like this is to keep the vehicle you install the rack on as clean as possible and to not overload the rack. If you keep the rack and the vehicle clean there won't be any scratches, and if you don't overload the rack there wouldn't be any dents. It also helps to put down a fresh coat of wax on the vehicle's paint as well. It's also really important to remove the rack when not in...

  • Trunk Mount Bike Recommendations on 2015 Chevrolet Trax
    To carry y our son's mountain bike on your 2015 Chevrolet Trax there are a few racks that come to mind. The Thule Gateway XT # TH9006XT is a great option with its anti-sway cages and Hold Fast cradles. It also uses Thule's FitDial system to make it easier to install. Another option is the Yakima HalfBack 2 # Y02636. This rack only uses 4 straps to connect to your Trax which can be easier to install. It also has anti-sway cradles and secures the bike using ZipStrip straps that make...

  • Hitch and Bike Rack Recommendation for 2018 Chevy Traverse
    I checked with Thule and they do not recommend trunk racks for the redesigned 2018 Chevy Traverse. Instead you'd have to go with a hitch like the Draw Tite part # 76184 so that you can install a hitch bike rack. I really like the Saris Freedom Superclamp part # SA4025F. This is a lightweight platform rack (which is normally an unheard of combo). That means it'll be easy to install and remove from your vehicle since it's light, but also it'll be very easy to load bikes on since it's a...

  • Will Thule Gateway Trunk Mount Bike Rack Fit 2009 Toyota Prius
    The Thule Gateway Trunk Mount Bike Rack will work great on your 2009 Prius. This bike rack has the patented FitDial system that makes sure you get a nice secure fit on the back of your vehicle. This bike rack uses 6 nylon straps to anchor it to your Prius. The bike carrier has a weight capacity of 35 lbs per bike. I have attached a link to an installation video of this bike rack on a Prius you can check out. When carrying bikes with alternative frames like kids bikes or women's bikes...

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendations for a Volkswagen New Beetle
    As long as your Volkswagen is a New Beetle, the Thule 2 bike trunk mount racks will work great for you. The Gateway is a very nice rack and we have a video review of this rack for you to see. My personal favorite trunk mount bike rack would be the Thule Raceway 2 Bike Rack, # TH9001PRO, which is much easier to install and remove after the initial installation. This rack features ratcheting cables that are much easier to work with than the web straps, like those on the Gateway rack. We...

  • FitDial Setting for Thule Gateway Trunk Mount Bike Carrier on a 2014 Toyota RAV4
    For some reason, the old instructions were included with the Thule Gateway bike carrier # TH9006XT. For your 2014 Toyota RAV4 the FitDial setting you will need is 11. It is 11 for all of the Thule trunk mount carriers for the 2014 RAV4.

  • Recommended Trunk Mounted Bike Rack for 2014 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class
    I do have a solution for you, however the Thule Gateway XT 2-Bike Rack # TH9006XT referenced in your question is not confirmed to fit your 2014 Mercedes-Benz GLK-Class. This is simply because Thule has not been able to confirm that the trunk rack will safely work with the particular design and factory rear spoiler at the top of the hatch on your vehicle. There is not a Thule trunk mounted bike rack available that is designed to fit your vehicle. For your new bike, I recommend looking...

  • Does the Thule Gateway XT 2-Bike Rack # TH9006XT Come with Locks
    The Thule Gateway XT 2-Bike Rack, # TH9006XT, does not come equipped with a way to lock the bikes to the carrier or the carrier to the vehicle. These products are sold separately. For this we offer the Thule Cable Lock, # TH538XT, to lock your bikes to the carrier and the Thule Passive Security Strap, # TH533, to secure the carrier to the vehicle. Simply loop the cable around your carrier and close the puck end in your locked trunk or rear hatch so your carrier cannot be removed.

  • Trunk Mounted Bike Rack Recommendation for 2013 Mercedes C300
    The trunk mount bike rack option that best meets the criteria you mentioned would be the Thule Raceway, part # TH9001PRO. The rack attaches to the vehicle using 4 retractable cables, instead of the 6 straps and buckle arrangement used by other racks. This makes the Raceway very easy to use and allows the rack to be installed or removed in seconds. The feet of the rack that will touch the vehicle are very wide, to spread out the weight of the rack and the bikes over as large an area as...

  • Trunk Mount Bike Carrier for 2004 Acura TL with Spoiler and 2012 Lexus IS 250
    For a trunk mount bike carrier that will hold 2 bikes and fit both your 2004 Acura TL with spoiler and 2012 Lexus IS 250 I recommend the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top rack # HRF2. Since the TL has the spoiler the only trunk mount carrier that is going to for sure reach over the spoiler on the TL is the HRF2. It was specifically designed for this purpose. I have linked a video review of this carrier for you. If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar that goes straight...
