Thule Insta-Gater Pro Truck Tailgate Mount

Add Protect+ Powered by Extend™

Why We Like the Insta-Gater Pro Truck Tailgate Mount

When you need a tailgate mount that can handle fat bikes and 29ers, the Insta-Gater Pro Truck Tailgate Mount is the way to go. It's sturdy, with clearance for larger tires. Its ratcheting arm secures everything at the wheel to limit the risk of frame damage on our rides, and it mounts easily with no drilling necessary. Thule's One-Key system allows for a bike-to-mount lock that increases safety measures.

  • A tailgate mount that isn't afraid of fat bikes and 29ers
  • Clearance for fat tires and wagon wheels covers a quiver
  • Ratcheting arm secures at wheel to limit risk of frame damage
  • Mounts easily with no drilling or bolt installation
  • Bike-to-mount lock included with Thule's One-Key system
  • Thule recommends for all pickup tailgates

Nice rack

I've put it through the wringer
True to size

I've got one that's maybe 10 years old now. Still works great.

Gator bike rack

I've used it several times
True to size

My husband loves this bike rack- easy to use, very secure, light weight-and portable. It fits in the tailgate perfectly and there is room fir a second rack to put another standing bike next to it. The only problem was one of the security straps that ratchet down broke after just 2 months of using it. I hope we can get a replacement. I plan to order a rack for my mountain bike too if we can resolve this issue.

Insta-gator bike rack

True to size

I bought this for my husband as a surprise gift and it was even better than I expected! Easy to install and use. I plan to buy a second one for my bike.


Will this work in a short-bed truck without having to turn the front wheel? I have a Toyota Tacoma and may want more than one of these.
