Hoppy Tailgate EasyLift Review
Today we are going to show you part number 74211 from Hoppy. This is Hoppys Tailgate EasyLift. What this is, is a device that actually takes the weight off the tailgate and makes it easier to lift up and down. In most cases it will take up to 80 percent of the weight of the tailgate off your hands. It is actually pretty easy to install. As soon as you open it up you can see the instructions on what to do to install it. Basically you only have to drill two holes. One gets drilled into the tailgate itself and the other gets drilled into the truck bed itself. Most of the time on a tailgate you take two arms and you have got to really kind of push and shove it up in there. With the EasyLift it actually does not require that much effort at all. You can do it easily one-handed while probably carrying something in that arm, too. And also, when you let it down, it does not really flop down all that hard it actually has a controlled descent. And again, it just makes it smooth going up into the bed when you close it. And there you have it for part number 74211 from Hoppy, the Tailgate EasyLift.
