The Trail Gator lets your child experience riding a bike with an adult in safety. Once assembled, no tools are required to fit or remove and you have full steering and speed control. Children love being in tow with an adult and can choose to either pedal or coast along. With a high strength steel frame the trail gator is extremely robust and will stabilise your child's handlebars for improved balance. A telescopic folding system means that it's easy to store and transport when not in use.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 123 reviewers.Rated 5 out of 5 by Wilspin Good value Easy to set up in around 30 minutes and once done, bike can be connected/disconnected in seconds. Nice and stable for both the bike towing and the bike being towed. 17 August 2016Rated 5 out of 5 by Amdsm One of the best things I've ever bought As above, this is a great product. Yes you have to spend some time at the start tightening the bracket on the child's bike but once this work is done the enjoyment and satisfaction are endless. This means my daughter, who had been using this product since she was three, can have the independence to ride alone but can be attached to my bike when she is tired or for longer distances. Although some parts feel of slightly poor quality, I've used this product for over a year and it is still working as well as day one. You also get loads of amazed looks from people as you pass. I can't praise this product highly enough. It is brilliant. 03 August 2016Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer 4 year old daughter loves using this. Daughter (nearly 4 years now) rides unassisted but 1 mile is about her limit so short family rides were not possible. This device allows her to have a tow (e.g. uphill) and also ride solo for stretches when she want's to. We managed about 8 miles on tow on the first outing before she began to tire - she loves it. I was worried about it not holding her upright, or wobbling, or her leaning back uncomfortably, but the bike was stable, her position was fine and she was comfortable. You do have to torque the headset bracket up a lot on the childs bike though which may cause damage but felt sacrifice was worth it and didn't find a better option. There were no instructions in the box (I was probably just unfortunate) but I found the official PDF manual online which was ok. The telescopic bar itself is robust (quite heavy) but some of the accompanying components are poor, e.g. one quick release handle just bent as the metal is so soft so I have had to be careful with it. Another quick release has rusted after one day of rain. Spent more on a low range torque wrench (as required for installation) than on the product itself. In the end I couldn't seem to torque the headset bracket up to the required value as the bracket just kept bending and I feared squishing the alloy headset of the childs bike. For the price of a couple of a couple of days trailer hire, we can use this over and over - overall we are pleased we bought it for its versatility. 21 July 2016Rated 4 out of 5 by Benno1 Good stuff A little tricky to set up initially but once set up its great fun and has quick release, my four year old loves it 17 July 2016Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Trail Gator Much cheaper than alternatives, extremely easy to fit and a great success with grandchildren. I've seen a few comments on this option but by following the instructions and making sure that all fittings are tightened properly it really does work well and can be removed/refitted in seconds without any tools. Recommended. 11 July 2016Rated 5 out of 5 by SaJaHo Such a life saver We enjoy our bike rides and our 3 year old daughter was out growing her bike seat. She can ride her own bike but it can be slow and exhausting. She has to pedal 6 times before we do one. We discovered this and haven't looked back. She loves being on the back of Daddy's bike and 'helps' him ride along. Sometimes you can see her bike tilting (mainly because shes tilting it) - we found if we ensure her bike is straight when tightening the bolts it stopped it. My husband fixed it on by himself in around 30 mins- he said it was awkward to do. Definitely would reccommend :D 20 June 2016Rated 4 out of 5 by Bevets Great piece of kit Great piece of kit and has given much enjoyment. 1) fiddly to fit and set up. 2) the lever on the M6 quick release on the child end was has holes in it, these weakened it so I had to replace this. 12 June 2016Rated 5 out of 5 by Kerry42 Great product - does what it says Initially sceptical given other reviews, but wanted something to go out on today (had wanted to get a tag-along style, but let down by another seller). Given other reviews said instructions not clear or a bit fiddly I paid for Halfords to fit in store on buying - turned out to be an excellent choice. Although they hadn't fitted one before they grappled with this leaving us with a superb fit to both my bike and my daughter's. Travelled a 6 mile round trip on its first outing, including long slow hills and a bit of a bumpy road, and it was a breeze compared to the double tag-along I'd used before on the same route with the same child (other daughter not big enough to cope on the double). Price-matched, so good price paid! 04 June 2016
