Guide Your Boat Into and Out of the Water with Ease

When your boat trailer has been backed down the ramp and is partially submerged, these 40" tall guideposts that are mounted on the rear corners of the frame will stick out of the water, giving you 2 highly visible targets to guide your boat between for loading. The PVC pipes also provide a visual aid to help you back your boat trailer down the ramp when you're unloading and loading your boat.


Installation

The posts are simple to install. Slide the PVC pipes over the pre-galvanized steel support posts. Then mount the posts on the top or below the trailer frame, as close to the rear corners as possible. Adjust the posts so that the distance between each post and your boat is less than 1".


Pre-Galvanized Steel

Pre-galvanized steel parts are stamped from a sheet of steel after it has already been galvanized. The edges of pre-galvanized parts often lose their zinc coating during the stamping process. Because of the thinness of the coating (less than 1 mil) and the fact that the edges remain exposed, pre-galvanized parts can begin to oxidize and rust quickly, so it's recommended that they be primed and painted.

Video Transcript for CE Smith Boat Trailer Parts - Guides - CE27620 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look in part number CE27620. These are the CE smith Post Style Guide Ons for boat trailers. Once installed, they're going to have an overall height of forty inches off the side of your trailer. The guide posts are going to provide a visual target on your trailer to help you load and unload your boat. It will extend out of the water. They are tall enough to extend out of the water.

That's going to help you center the boat while loading. It's also going to come in handy when you're backing your trailer down the boat ramp. These right here, these are going to be the galvanized steel arms that are PVC tubing. It's going to slide over. The tubing right here, the square designed, that's going to give us an inch and a half diameter. It's going to be 16 gauge, pre-galvanized steel tubes.

Theses are going to mount directly to the trailer frame and then the PVC piping is going to measure two inches in diameter, that's designed to slide over the galvanized steel arms. Very simple installation. These are going to install on the rear crossmember of the trailer frame. It's going to come with all the necessary hardware, so everything that you see here on the table is included as well. Some end caps to over the PVC tubing. You're going to get your brackets, your U-bolts and then all the necessary lock nuts and flat washers.

Everything that you need is included to get this fully installed. This will adjust out to thirteen inches from the trailer. CE Smith is going to make this product fully in the USA. It's going to come with two boat guide ons and it is designed for trailer frames up to three inches wide by four and one quarter inches tall. Now if you have a frame on the trailer that's five and a quarter inches tall, you will need some extra long U-bolt kits.

You can find those on our website with part number CE11416 and those are going to be sold separately. The post height when it's fully installed is going to be forty inches and you want to be sure to check with your state department of transportation for restrictions regarding maximum trailer width. Really simple installation process though. The arms right here have a little notch designed on them. That's going to make sure that the PVC tubing does not rotate, so I'm going to go ahead and just show you the tubing is going to slide over the galvanized steel. It's going to come down and it's got this slot in it that's going to engage the no-rotate notch, so the piping goes on the end of that galvanized steel right there and you could place an end cap on this portion here. That's really easy to get fully installed under your trailer. Another neat feature is that you can adjust this to fit the width of your boat so the installation again is very simple and easy. The posts are going to be really easy to install. Again all you got to do is slide the PVC posts over the galvanized steel support post, making sure that the slots on the post engage the no-rotate notch. This arm down here is going to be the arm that mounts to the trailer, so you would mount the post on top or below the trailer frame. It gives you that option. Your bracket is designed to go over the galvanized steel arm and then this is going to allow you to adjust it. Once you have this attached to your trailer frame with the necessary or the included U-bolts and hardware, you want to loosely install it. That way you can slide the arm in and out and you want the arm with the PVC piping on there to sit no more than one inch away from the surface in or the side part of your boat so you can adjust the posts so that the distance between each post in your boat is going to be less than one inch. Once you have that set, all you have to do is tightened down all the hardware, install the end caps on the end of the PVC tubing and then you're going to be set and ready to go and they're going to be fully functional and ready for use. That's going to do it for our review of part number CE27620. These are the CE Smith Post Style Guide Ons for boat trailers. .

The post style guide-ons are excellent quality. My trailer is a 1954 Starcraft tilt bed trailer so the fit will be different. I will use the existing roller brackets and the fenders by modifiying the guide ons by drilling mounting holes in them. They happen to fit the roller brackets exactly. You would have to have one of these trailers to really see. The delivery was quick and the follow up was excellent. 151053

They were great quality, well built, very sturdy. However they were not wide enough. I'm using them but only about an inch of the guide post touches my trailer's I-beam. I have to be careful not to bump them too hard when loading the boat or they move. Also, the U-bolts were too short for my trailer's I-beam so I had to discard them and purchase longer bolts and make some plates to go under the i-beam. Otherwise I am very pleased with them. I mainly needed them to help when backing the trailer and they work great for this. 668579


Comments

The U-bolts included are compatible with frame members up to 4-1/4 inches tall. If the frame is taller than that, up to 5-1/4 inches tall, a larger U-bolt set is available as part # CE11416

It has been a year and the guides still look great and work great. We used them a bit different. They were installed on a boat lift. When bringing in the boat they guide it in and keep it from hitting anything on the dock that might damage the boat. They also help hold it in place while the lift brings the boat up. It really works well. 273604

The boat guides appear to be exactly what I need. I did a lot of research before ordering this product and the metal brackets are even sturdier than expected. It would take a major collision to bend these one-piece brackets. 60355

Still working fine after a year. Nothing has broken, bent, or come loose. I would definitely recommend this product to my friends. As always, eTrailer was great to deal with.

Easy to install these well made guides. These keep the back of the boat from being blown sideways, and in my case, allow me to see my narrow little boat when I’m backing up, or just driving down the road. I had an extra set of trailer lights that weren’t really good enough to submerge, so after I finished installing these I attached these lights to the PVC top cap, then just ran the wires down and connected to my existing wiring. Now I can really see, and be seen. Please note that the lights in my image DO NOT come with these. 557618


Comments

My trailer has very skinny rails open on one side. If yours is this way, I advise cutting a block of pressure treated wood to just fit in the rail with a few hammer blows. Otherwise the shackles of these guides will bend the open ends inward, causing them to loosen. This isn’t a problem with this product, it’s just my cheapo trailer not being made of 4 sided box channel. Everything still looks new!

I take my 15' Klamath aluminum boat out by myself all the time. I purchased these guides to make it easier for me to get the boat centered back on my EZ Loader trailer, especially on breezy days. My trailer is a lot narrower than my pick-up, meaning I can't see anything when backing the empty trailer down the ramp. Before I would have to remove my tonneau cover before leaving home (which is difficult by myself). At the ramp I would have to put the tailgate down to see where the trailer was going. These guides stick up far enough that I can leave the tonneau cover on and avoid that whole hassle. This is an added benefit I didn't originally anticipate. Great price. Mine was delivered ahead of schedule! Install is a breeze. People at etrailer are friendly and very helpful. The web site is easy to use. Product info is complete. I didn't need it, but liked that they include specific part numbers that might be needed for different size trailer frames. Besides the product instructions, the video guides are really nice to have available. I would definitely use etrailer again and would highly recommend them. 238631

Great products....the posts, lights, and plug all were shipped quickly and easy to install. Finally have my lights up high and out of the water. I used 3 wire extension cord to run uncut lines from the lights to the plug at front of trailer. Should protect against corrosion issues. Pictures of my install are attached. Thanks 490407

This has worked out well. Lights and connections never touch the salt water. I did the same thing on the trailer for 25 center console.

My previous boat was a heavy 16-foot aluminum bass boat and it did not have trailer guides. I struggled on more than one occasion trying to trailer the boat during high winds and/or heavy current and I swore that my next boat will have these. I had to modify the way they mounted to my new trailer but I was provided with enough mounting hardware to mount them in pretty much any way that I might need. These guides work perfectly for my little 14-foot jon boat. The materials used are high quality and the finished guides are very sturdy. 256220

Received the 2 sets of guides posts in good time and in good condition. When I assembles the posts on my trailers I found it was impossible to "slide" the pvc posts over the ends of the galvanized mount posts. I tried to call customer service and was put on hold and told I was 16th in line. After a half hour of waiting I gave up. I tried calling the manufacture for help (C E Smith Company) and got a dead end in their phone system. Finally frustrated I used a heat gun to soften the ends of the round PVC tubes and then was able to force them over the square metal posts. I think the manufacture needs to have better quality control and test whether the parts fit. 430625

These guides arrived in a timely manner. Installation was simple and straightforward. The first time I put my boat on the trailer using these they proved their worth. I had to approach the trailer from an angle due to a busy ramp. I used the outside guide as a pivot and with a little forward throttle was able to line the boat up and onto the trailer with no problems. I would recommend these to anyone searching for a good setup for their boat trailer. 203920

Hi George, Thanks for your patience with this review. Finally got around to installing the guide posts today. Overall, I'm very pleased with the quality and materials used. Initially, it took a while to figure out how best to install (under versus above the rail) but once we decided, we were pleased with our decision. ( I have a Continental trailer) I would recommend this product to anyone looking for solid well made trailer guide posts. Much easier to launch and retrieve my jon boat! Thank you! 466628

Order came in ahead of schedule. The hardware is made to fit a wide variety of trailer frames and fit mine just fine. I used a deep socket on my impact drill that made instal a breeze. I had both installed in about 15 minutes. They are very sturdy and look good on my new trailer. The boat will load straight and the stern will not float side to side during retrieval. These were also a necessity for me because I could not see my trailer when it was empty. I now have a guide while backing. I would recommend this product and order from etrailer again in the future. 289040

Purchased a set of guides for my boat. I installed the first one with no issues at all. After installing the bracket to my trailer on the second guide I was ready to install the PVC tube. Unfortunately, the inside diameter of the tube was too small to fit over the outside diameter of the bracket. I continued to work it and eventually got about an inch or so of the tube over the bracket. Couldn't push the rest of it down because the fit was so tight. I wound up breaking off a piece of the PVC tube. I called and spoke with a customer service rep [at CE Smith] and found out that they have had issues with some tubes. He was able to order me another one at no charge and said it would arrive by a certain day and it did. He also told me that they would ensure that the new tube would fit over the bracket before they shipped it. After receiving the new one I installed it with no problem just like the first one. Great customer service! 145163

Good solid product, and quite easy to install. I painted the bars with a primer / paint spray prior to installing. I recently bought a new truck and the site lines were not as good as my old SUV. With these posts installed, I can now see the trailer again while backing down the ramp. This was primary reason for my purchase, so problem solved. etrailer was great to work with! Fair price and quick shipping. 430649

Fast shipping, etrailer makes it easy start to finish CE smith product is what it is wherever you get it. I painted my mounting hardware black to match the trailer. Looks good and seems strong enough. Will order stuff from etrailer again for sure. 729583

Worked ok.. but installation tedious. Extremely long bolts...long slow process to tighten. My trailer is small and has C chanel frame with lights wiring running along the inside. Unable to install according to instructions. Had to adapt some to avoid damage to wiring. Guides are solid and tight after some creative engineering! We'll see how they hold up to salt water use. 729306

This will be part one of a review covering the installation on my boat trailer. I have not had a chance to use the product yet, but once I do, I’ll come back and update this review. Installation was seamless.....the hardest part was starting the first locknut on the bracket for each side, just needing a third hand would have helped. Getting everything installed snug, but not tight allows for a final measurement for the distance from the rail edge to the PVC guide pole. Once you have your gap, tighten everything down and the installation is complete. 729131

Great price and quick delivery. Everything as advertised. The only additional comment I would make is that I wish is that the manufacturer would offer stainless steel or aluminum parts and stainless steel hardware. In Florida and other coastal states, trailers don’t last very long and having an aluminum trailer with steel parts is like having a Mercedes with rusted fenders 728640

I'd been putting off adding boat guides to my sail boat (16ft LOA) because I thought I'd have to fabricate it. But for about $60 these are just great. They got delivered quickly and when promised, all the components were included, and it only took two tools to install them--a ratchet socket and a closed-end wrench. They seem very sturdy, but I have not had a chance to use them yet. 721313

All of the products were exactly as I expected and fit my boat nicely. I would order again from etrailer. 696933



- CE27620
by:

The v-stop, crank and steps are first class, well made and fit perfectly, with good instructions and easy installation. But the boat guides by Smith were not so good. The metal was galvanized and had a lot of sharp edges. I cleaned up the sharp edges (remember, kids play areound the boat and trailer) and the metal looked cheap that way, so I painted everything. I suggest that you contact Smith and tell them to add "break all edges" to their manufacturing process, as well as at least add a coat of primer ot the metal. Overall, I rate the products with 4 stars and the service at etrailer as AWESOME! 693392

I have a 2007 Bentley 244 pontoon boat. Pontoons are difficult to load and even more so it there is current and or wind blowing. I installed this produce on my center console years ago and thought that it would work just as well on the pontoon. I love it and has made loading effortless. In your ad I didn't see any pontoons nor have seen any installed so I thought that I would take the time to help others with a great solution to easy loading. You do need to get 2 sets instead of just 1. I did have to mount them as far out as possible and my advise to etrailer is to add 6 inches to the L bracket that bolts to the trailer for pontoons for added width. I hope to see this on your site and that it help others with EZ loading. Thank you 691203

These square tubes are separate from the 60-inch PVC pipes that are included in the kit. From the middle of the bend to the end of the horizontal tube the measure is 21-inches. We also offer a similar kit with 40-inch PVC pipes, part # CE27620, and a 60-inch kit # CE27760 that includes LED lights that mount on top of the pipes. A...

  • Fit of CE Smith Post Guide-Ons on a 1986 Champion Bass Boat Trailer
  • The guide posts will fit, as long as your frame members aren't wider than 3-3/4 inches wide and 4-1/4 inches tall. They are adjustable up to 13-inches from the outside edge of the trailer frame. (See picture to the right). The guide posts extend out of the water to provide a visual target when loading your boat onto the trailer. You will mount the posts on the top or below the trailer frame. I attached a installation link for you as well.

  • Will Fulton Boat Trailer Guide-Ons Work for a Single Axle Escort Trailer
  • The Fulton boat guides # FGB1500100 should work for you because there is some degree of adjustability in and out along the horizontal parts of the PVC pipes. From the closest part of the bowed upright to the end of the PVC tube the measurement is 15 inches. From the same spot to the inside of the closest U-Bolt the measurement is 13 inches, when mounted on a 2 inch square tube frame. Your frame size will dictate this measurement. Thirteen inches is fairly common. The CE Smith guide...

  • Availability of Vertical Posts for Rear Corners of PWC Trailer
  • I'd recommend something like the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons, part # CE27620. The posts easily mount to the trailer using the included u-bolts. A lighted post system like # CE27740 is also available. It'd make your jet ski easier to load in low light situations, as well as making your trailer more visible when towing at night.

  • Replacement U-Bolts for Fulton Boat Trailer Guide-Ons
  • We have u-bolt kit # CE11416 from CE Smith that could work for you though it is a replacement for CE Smith Guide-Ons like # CE27620 which a little different than the Fulton model. The Fulton model has top and bottom brackets whereas the CE Smith guide-ons do not so the u-bolts might not be long enough depending on the height of your frame. It would probably be better to go with replacement hardware kit # CE11452-A.

  • Will Boat Guide-Ons Work With CE Smith Boat Trailer

These are basic guide-ons that attach to the frame with U-bolts so they are very simple to install and will have you out on the water in no time without having to remove the tail lights. I have added links to a couple video reviews for you to check out.

  • Mounting Boat Trailer Guide-Ons to Triton Boat Trailer With Fender Step Extends to Rear of Trailer
  • It sounds like you'll need to do some fab work in order to get the guide-ons to work. I believe your best bet would be to eliminate the u-bolts and have the brackets welded to the top or the underside of the frame member. If the fender step doesn't extend more than 13 inches from the side of the frame member, you can mount to the underside of the frame and the upright portion of the guide-on will clear the step. Otherwise, you'd need to attach to the top of the frame member.

  • Recommended CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons For Boat Trailer
  • The guide-ons you choose for your boat and trailer really depends on the height of your boat. For a low-profile boat like a fishing boat or a Jon boat I recommend using the 40-inch tall guides, part # CE27620. If you have a taller boat like a cabin cruiser or a deep V hull boat I recommend the 60-in guides, part # CE27640.

  • Will CE Smith Light Mounting Brackets CE27650A Fit on CE Smith Post Guides # CE27620
  • Yes, the CE Smith Light Mounting Brackets for Post # CE27650A will fit on the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons # CE27620. The metal has a bit of a give to it so it would easily fit around a 2-3/8 inch pipe, but it was designed to fit the CE Smith Guide Ons like the # CE27620 that you mentioned.

  • Could CE Smith Guide Ons Install on Boat Trailer with Fenders that Extend to Back of Trailer
  • It sounds like you'll need to do some fab work in order to get the guide-ons to work. I believe your best bet would be to eliminate the u-bolts and have the brackets welded to the top or the underside of the frame member.

  • Boat Guide-Ons for a Boston Whaler Classic Montauk and Trailrite Boat Trailer
  • No customers have said specifically they were using CE Smith guide-ons # CE27620 for a Whaler Classic Montauk. The overall height from the top of the pipes all the way down to where the metal support arm starts to turn towards the trailer is 46-1/2 inches. There is a 50 inch tall model from Fulton, # FGB1500100. And The 60 inch one, # CE27640, could work if you trimmed some length from the PVC pipes.

  • Will CE Smith Post Style Guide-Ons Work with a Tahoe Q5 and Trailer
  • I think what you are going to have to do, since that step extends so far back on the trailer and the frame has an angle to it, is bolt the bracket to the top of the step rather than clamp it to the frame. So basically the post will be sandwiched between the bracket and the step.

  • Boat Trailer Guide On Recommendation for a Deep V Lund Boat Trailer
  • It sounds like the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons # CE27620 aren't wide or tall enough for your boat trailer. Since I can't recommend you bend the brackets a better option would be the # CE27635 which is similar but can adjust out an additional 6 inches on either side and will be 35 inches taller.

  • Will the Post Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers Provide a Secure Support Guide for my Pontoon Boat
  • I spoke with my contact at CE Smith and she said that the 13 inch measurement is from the outside edge of the trailer frame. If your 2008 Sun Tracker Fishing Barge extends 11 inches past the outside edge of the trailer's frame on each side, the Post Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers, # CE27620, will still have enough extension to provide a secure support for the guides.
