TailGater, the simple, safe and easy way to transport your 20lb, 30lb and 40lb propane tanks.

No bolts, connectors or drilling required!

Easily removed after each use, rolled up and stored! 


The Original Tailgater (Made in China) is designed for pre-2012 Pickups.  $17 plus S&H


Tailgater 2 (Made in the USA) is designed for ALL model pickups and also the newer 40lb propane tanks. This model is now available...$19.95 plus S&H.


Ever wondered what would happen if you had to suddenly brake very hard to avoid a collision while transporting your propane tank in your pickup? Simply tieing the tank down with a bungee, or in some sort of base will NOT prevent the tank from flying through your back window, or worse, exploding.




So give yourself peace of mind by knowing that tank behind you is SECURE.

Built with 1200lb breaking strain webbing!

Designed and built by a full-time RV'er to solve the problem of transporting your 20lb, 30lb or 40lb tanks, whether just down the road to the propane fill station, or on the road. No more bungees, milkcrates, ropes or wires! No bolts or drilling!
Please note:

Strap worked perfectly and did a perfect job with a 30 lb. bottle. The peace of mind was worth three times the price!!

I bought this last year and have only used it a few times but it worked great. I wish it would have an option to be able to hook it to the tie down in my truck bed when the tailgate isn't convenient because of cargo. I would buy this again and recommend it to anyone who has to transport propane tanks.

Please let us know when you have one that will fit the 2014 F250 Super Duty with the built in tailgate step. You have a fantastic product here. I've been hauling LPG tanks in my truck for years, and sure could of used this back then. So please keep us up to date.... Thanks

This works fantastically! Even on a truck with a fiver tailgate. We tried it first by putting the tank in the corner where the tailgate is highest but the one strap tended to slide down so we put it at lowest (middle) section of tailgate and that tank didn't move! The directions say to make sure the short blue strap is on the tailgate side of the valve when you put it around the valve but you can't do it that way because you won't be able to ratchet the strap tight since there's not as much around the tailgate as normal. I am going to order 2 more for Christmas presents. Highly recommend.

Would this also work on the plastic V fifth wheel tail gates?

great item and idea. I'm going to get one. Already had to deal with bungee not holdding secure enough. One of those items that you won't need too often but wish you had it when you do. Priced resonably also.

Excellent item and idea will save so much worry on whether the tank is secure in transporting to home, so simple to use. Every tailgater should have one of these.

No more than 2 weeks ago I was taking my 30 lb tank to be filled. It was in Tank Foot on bottom and bungie cord on top to secure it...sure enough had to make emergency stop and it fell over...even with Tank Foot on bottom! What a great idea! I'll pass this along to my fellow camping group members. We've all had similar issues trying to transport propane tanks!

I was forced to make an emergency stop the first time I used it and it held the tank tight as it is supposed to do

We are full-timers and have spent the summer volunteering at a state park located at 10,000 foot elevation. Needless to say, we have to fill our propane tanks on a regular basis. We use the Tailgater tiedown strap to transport our tank to the propane dealer. The strap is easy to use, it securely holds the propane tank in place, and it stores conveniently.
