Give your board the plush-and-padded transportation treatment.

Toss the Thule Tailgate Pad over the 'gate of your short bed truck and get your six-foot (plus!) board down to the water without dinging it into oblivion. A sewn-in strap system slides easily around the bottom of your tailgate so you can secure this pad quickly without messing around for an hour in the garage. UV-resistant fabrics mean that even if you live somewhere that's sunny 366 days of the year, the pad won't fade out and turn brittle.

Perfect for what I needed!

    This works perfectly to hold my 11 ft paddleboard in the back of my truck. Easy to install and uninstall as needed. Fits fine over a 2010 F-150 tailgate. Completely happy with my purchase!

    Unanswered Question

    Is there a product that does not move around even if I tightened the straps to the tail gate? I live on a volcanic Island where the roads are dirt, my last purchase sure caused scratches to my tailgate.

    Can you use it for mountain bikes?

    Can you use it for mountain bikes?


    Yes, it can be used for the mountain bike. I would still recommend a towel over it if the bike is not strapped down since the pad is not very large.
