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.


  • SecureHook holds the bike by grabbing the wheel - no frame contact is made
  • Easy loading and unloading by raising and lowering the ratcheting arm over the wheel
  • Fits 20" to 29" wheel diameter and up to 5" wide tires
  • Locks the bike to the bike rack using a cable lock and Thule's One-Key lock cylinder (sold separately)
