The Thule Gate Mate TailGate Pad delivers ultimate protection for both your pickup truck and the bicycles loaded up on it. This slick alternative to pickup truck bike racks serves as a superb solution for those that want to just get the bicycles in the back of the pickup truck as fast as they can and go! Allows for carrying multiple bicycles and also serves as great protection for other gear loads hauled in the pickup truckbed.
Loaded with premium features, the Thule Gate Mate TailGate Pad for bikes is constructed of ultra durable, heavy duty vinyl with foam padding that fully protects all bicycles as well as the pickup truck tailgate. Gate Mate is secured in place on the tail gate using the integrated sturdy straps. The clever Handle Hood feature allows for easy access to the tailgate handle without having to remove the Gate Mate, while the integrated Knock-Block located at each end of the bike pad ensures the bicycles never slide off the edge of the tailgate. Even includes built-in strap anchors that provide secure tie-down points to fully stabilize and secure in place all the bikes or any other loads you want to haul in the pickup truck bed using the Thule GateMate Tail Gate Pad.
