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 will provide the best fitment. If greater, the large Gatekeeper (Y07411) 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.

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


  • Small Trailer to Carry 2 Kayaks and 2 Bikes with a 2017 Honda Ridgeline
  • There is a version of the Malone trailers that comes with 2 kayaks and 2 bikes. It is # MPG461KB and it is the ideal solution for you. The other option is to carry the bikes in the bed of your 2017 Honda Ridgeline and keep the kayaks on the roof. You may have already seen these but a great solution is to carry the bikes in the bed of your 2017 Honda Ridgeline and keep the kayaks on the roof by using a tailgate pad such as # Y07410. These pads actually work quite well. I was pleasantly...

  • Will the Yakima BikerBar Fit a 2019 Honda Ridgeline and another Truck Bed Bike Rack that Will Fit
  • The Yakima BikeBar # Y01143 and other similar products have traditionally not worked with the Ridgeline. I checked with Yakima and they do not currently show it as a fit. What I recommend is the GateKeeper # Y07410. This is a tailgate pad and believe it or not they work quite well. Bikes stay in place, tailgate is protected, and you could use it for other items as well so as not to damage the tailgate on your 2019 Honda Ridgeline.

  • Will the Thule GateKeeper Tailgate Pad Fit a 2004 Chevy Avalanche
  • Out of all of the tailgate pads for your 2004 Chevy Avalanche # Y07410 would be the best fit since it is more narrow than the others. But you would still have to bunch it up some since you only have 44 inches of free space. The Thule Insta-Gater # TH501 does physically fit the Avalanche. The length a bike can be though is another story. based on the available truck bed rack options a tailgate pad is your best option. Everything else requires drilling.

  • 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.

  • Tailgate Pad For 2016 Ram 1500 Limited With 50-Inch Wide tailgate
  • We have one tailgate pad that is less than 54-inches wide and would fit your 2016 Ram Dually tailgate. The pad is designed for stand-up paddleboards and is part # Y07410. This pad is 53-inches wide and 17-1/2 inches tall and is attached to the tailgate with nylon straps. If you are looking for a rack to carry a bike in your truck bed I recommend the Thule Insta-Gater Truck Bed Single Bike Rack, part # TH501. The bike carrier is held in place with two ratcheting straps that are secured...

  • Truck Bed Bike Rack Recommendation for 2015 Chevy Colorado with Tonneau and Bed Liner
  • Your best option would be a tailgate pad style bike rack like the Yakima Gatekeeper part # Y07410 which is a confirmed fit and allows you to set your bikes over the tailgate as a way to transport them. I attached a review video for this carrier for you to check out as well.

  • Truck Bed Bike Racks that Won't Interfere with Ladder Rack in a 2010 Toyota Tacoma
  • Truck bed bike racks such as # S64702 will need to rest on top of the bed sides. Otherwise they will not stay in place as you drive. What I recommend is the Yakima GateKeeper # Y07410. These tailgate pads actually work quite well and you would not have to worry about the handlebars on the bikes interfering with the ladder rack. Another option, if your truck has the factory cargo management rails in the bed, is the Velo Gripper # INRT202. This is for one bike and it mounts to the cargo...
