Thule Insta-Gater Truck Bike Rack
The Thule Insta-Gater holds your bike without drilling, bolting, or wheel removal. The Insta-Gater is a great system that works with all kinds of bike frames and handles wheels from 20" to 29" and up to 3" wide.
To install, simply open the tailgate, set the Insta-Gater anchor in the gap, and it's locked in place when you close the tailgate.
Oversize/overweight charge applies to this item.

This works very well, quick and easy. It inspired me to install a lock on my tailgate and install some "stops" (stainless bolts and nuts) through the upper tail of the Thule's mounting straps. This keeps the honest people from snatching the whole unit (tailgate locked) and from separating the straps from the Thule (the "stops') and swiping the unit sans mounting straps. My bike is longer than the bed of my truck so I just kick the bike's rear more towards the centerline, mount the front, and then pull the rear wheel back snug against the front of the bed, that stabilizes things even more. And you don't have to remove the front wheel. If you have friends, get two Gaters. Still with me? …and don't let anyone drop the tailgate when the bikes are mounted… just sayin' …another good reason for a tailgate lock.
