Swagman Tailwhip on truck

The Tailwhip padded tailgate bike rack is a quick and easy alternative to fork blocks. It saves you from having to remove the front wheels on your bikes and from drilling into your truck bed. And if you normally use a hitch rack, but will be using your hitch to tow, this rack lets you bring up to 4 bikes as well. Hook-and-loop straps secure your bikes to the rack and the center flap provides access to your tailgate handle.

Anchor Points

Swagman Tailwhip anchor points

A series of sewn-on loops along the top of the rack provide anchor points for your bikes. Use the included hook-and-loop straps to secure your bikes to the tie-down points to prevent your bikes from shifting during transport. Additional straps (sold separately) are available if you lose one.

Easy Access to Tailgate Handle

Swagman Tailwhip tailgate handle

The center flap lets you access your tailgate handle without having to remove the pad so you can lower your tailgate. The flap secures with a hook-and-loop fastener.

Heavy-Duty Construction

Swagman Tailwhip construction

The rack is made of heavy-duty, ballistic tarpaulin. A high-density foam core protects your tailgate and your bikes from dents and dings. The fleece lining provides a soft, smooth surface that won't scratch or scuff your tailgate.

Simple Installation

Swagman Tailwhip installed on truck

To install the rack just slide it over your tailgate and use the 3 integrated tie-down straps wrap to secure it in place.

Once again, etrailer delivers. Great product, and they always makes sure they fit!

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.



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.


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.


Easy to install and works well for our 2 bikes. Not sure I would recommend any tweaks to change its function.

2017 Honda Ridgeline

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




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.


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.


Quality product and fast shipping! Great first experience with etrailer. Excited to test the product out!


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


Love this product, the only inconvenient is I cannot close my truck bed covers when installed.


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.


This is a great product and really easy to use. I love they my bikes don’t take up the entire bed and that they don’t stick out 6 feet past my bumper.

  • 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.

  • Can Multiple Hitch Adapters Be Used Together To Haul A Bike Rack And Flat Tow A Car
    It's never recommended to use multiple adapters at the same time so I can't recommend using an extension on top of the Gen-Y stacked receiver that you have pictured, or even using the stacked receiver in that high/low adapter that you have pictured. If there isn't enough clearance for you to connect to the stacked receiver with your tow bar and still have the bike rack in place then you'll need to either use the bike rack on the back of your Colorado or use a Tailgate Pad like # S64761....

    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.

  • 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...

  • Truck Bed Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2017 Honda Ridgeline and Bike with Fenders
    The Thule Insta-Gater Pro # TH93VR 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...

    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 # TH93VR 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...

  • Recommended Tailgate Pad For a 2021 Ram 2500 with RamBox
    There are a number of tailgate pads that are confirmed to fit your 2021 Ram 2500 with RamBox, including the Swagman Tailwhip Tailgate Pad # S64761 you were looking at. The Swagman Tailwhip Tailgate Pad # S64761 is 54" wide and can accommodate up to 4 bikes, but it was designed for mid-size trucks. This will still work for your Ram, as it only slightly impacts the use. It does not extend quite as far down the tailgate, which could cause some more tire rub on the tailgate. Personally I...

  • 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-Gater Pro # TH93VR 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...

  • Option For Carrying Kayak Or Surfboard In Truck Bed

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 the...

  • How To Transport 4 Bikes On A 2011 Ram 1500 When Pulling A Trailer
    The Stromberg Carlson Bike Bunk Trailer-Mounted Bike Rack Carrier for A-Frame Trailers # CC-275 having a weight capacity of 100lbs is a bit light for a 4 bike carrier. You could use Yakima RidgeBack 4 Bike Rack - 1-1/4" and 2" Hitches - Tilting # Y02458. This carrier weighs about 35lbs; if your bikes weight no more than 16lbs a piece then this is recommended.

    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...

  • Bike Rack Options for Chevy Colorado with Tonneau Cover
    I do have an option for you but the Inno Velo Gripper Bike Rack for Truck Beds part # INRT201 won't work with a tonneau cover and there is not a version of this that will. The best option we have for trucks with a tonneau cover is the Thule Insta-Gater Pro Truck Bed Bike Rack part # TH93VR which attaches to the tailgate. If you need a more cost effective option, the Swagman Tailwhip Tailgate Pad part # S64761 works great as well and it also attaches to the tailgate.

You can also go with someting like the Swagman Tailwhip Tailgate Pad for Mid-Size Trucks - Up to 4 Bikes - 54" Wide, part # S64761. This will allow you to carry four bikes by hanging over your tailgate on this padded carrier. Each bike will be held by a strap on your downtube.

    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.

  • 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 28.5-inches of space on the crossbars so the Pilot would have to be fitted with at least 57 inch long bars. The Hullavator also requires 4-8 inches of crossbar...

  • 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,...
