    • Bikes' front wheels sit over tailgate, outside of truck bed, to conserve bed space
    • Great for hauling other long loads such as lumber, ladders, surfboards, and kayaks
  • Integrated daisy chain provides tie-down points on the pad
  • 5 Velcro straps secure bikes to daisy chain and prevent shifting during transport
  • Large, built-in flap lets you access your tailgate handle without removing the pad
  • Easy installation with 3 tie-down straps
  • Waterproof ballistic tarpaulin construction ensures durability
    • Fleece lining prevents scuffs and scrapes on tailgate

  • Dimensions: 54" wide x 16" tall x 1" thick
  • Limited lifetime warranty

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 Tailwhip Tailgate Pad Review

Today we'll be taking a look at Swagman Tailwhip Tailgate Pad. Part number s64761. The Swagman Tailwhip Tailgate Pad is a safe and easy solution for transporting your gear without damaging your tailgate. It features a high density foam padding with a fleece lining so it's going to protect and provide good cushion for your tailgate. It has integrated anchor points with reinforced stitching along the top portion of our pad, and includes 5 hook and loop fasteners to secure our gear. It's made out of waterproof ballistic construction to ensure durability, and offers a limited lifetime warranty. And with nothing loaded up we still have full access to our tailgate latch, and drop. It's going to fit your compact and mid-size pick-up trucks, but it's also available for your full-size pick-up trucks. And that's going to be part number s64670. Now let me go over some of the features to go ahead an show you how to get it installed. So we need to make sure to find our logo, it's going to be on the front and that's going to be face out on our tailgate. So let's open it up, we'll find the top portion of our straps here, it's going to lay on top of our tailgate, get that in position. Now to bring our straps through, we'll need to pop open our tailgate a little bit. So we can undo our hook and loop flap, grab the handle, and we'll just kind of lower that out slightly.

We'll grab our first strap, we're going to run that underneath and into the bed of our pickup. Let's go ahead and do that for all the straps here first, and then we can tighten them down. All right now at the point with our straps run through, we can go ahead and close it up. We'll grab our first strap, we're going to start with our middle one here and once we get this tightened down it's going to kind of hold it in place so we can finish the other two. So we'll bring it up, we'll make sure there are no kinks or any twist in it, we'll run it up through our cinch, and then back down through. Really then tighten it all the way up just yet, let's go ahead and do our other two. All right now that we got those all the way run through, we can go ahead and fine tune it a little bit. So we'll adjust it, make sure all of our loops are on top of our tailgate like this and then we can tighten them down. Now once we got it nice and tight, we can just bundle up the access on the inside. Now with our Swagman Tailgate Pad in place, I got a bike and a stand up paddle board with me here today, I'll go ahead and load those up, so we can bring our bike up and over, we'll have our wheel turned sideways in the front and it's going to sit just like that.

And then for our stand up paddle board, scoot it in like that and then we got it. Now with everything all loaded up we can use our hook and loop straps to secure it. Now if you're securing anything large like the stand up paddle board here today you will need to provide a larger strap to secure it. And that's going to complete our look for the Swagman Tailwhip Tailgate Pad. Part number s64761.

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.

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

Review from a similar Swagman 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.

Review from a similar Swagman Tailwhip in Truck Bed Bike Racks

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.

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

  • 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 31-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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Compatibility of Pickup Truck Tailgate Pad Bike Carriers with 2016 Ram 1500 with Rambox

Both install using the three included tie down straps and either one will be compatible with the Ram Box feature on your pickup.

  • Is There a Way to Lock a Bike to Truck with Tailgate Pad Bike Rack

  • 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.

  • 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.

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...

  • 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...

  • 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...
