      Measure measure

      Looked great, but didn’t fit my truck. The Large pad is too wide for my older slightly narrower tailgate (2011 GMC Sierra 2500). Ended up exchanging it for the medium which is way too small for a full size truck. If you’ve got a slightly older truck be sure to measure.

      This thing is awesome!!!!

      The new gatekeeper is a MAJOR improvement over the previous version. Yakima took customer feedback and responded by fixing every issue. I drive an F150 and installation is super easy, and the gatekeeper fits nearly perfect. The new hook strap system is very secure and easy to operate. The flap now snaps in place instead of just relying on velcro, and it comes with a metal reinforced loop on the inside to run a lock through which means i feel better about leaving the pad installed knowing it won't be stolen. Kudos Yakima!!!! 👏
