The Thule 501501 Insta-Gater Pro gives you the ability to carry a single bike by either the front or rear wheel in the bed of your truck. The 501501 Insta-Gator Pro uses ratcheting plastic anchors between the truck's bed and tailgate to secure itself in place which means no drilling or bolting required.
No Frame Contact
A large ratcheting hook clamps around the back of the bike's tire, snugging this arm up to the tire then holds it in place inside the cradle.
Carries a wide variety of bikes with ease
The 501501 Pro uses a locking, ratcheting arm that hugs the front wheel into an over-sized wheel hoop to happily accommodate 20" to 29" wheels with anything from skinny roadie tires to fat bike tires, and everything in between.
