CE Smith Boat Trailer Parts - CE27626

Guide-on posts make it easy to load your boat onto your trailer and back your trailer down the ramp. They attach to the rear of your trailer and extend out of the water, providing visual targets to center the boat between during loading.

  • Guideposts provide a visual target on your trailer to help you load and unload your boat
    • Extend out of the water to help you center your boat while loading
    • Assist you in backing your trailer down the boat ramp

  • Quantity: 2 boat guide-ons


Note: Check with your state Department of Transportation for restrictions regarding maximum trailer width.


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 Post-Style Guide-Ons Review

Today on our trailer, we're going to be taking a look at the CE Smith Post Style Guide Ons for Boat Trailers 40" Tall in Black, part #CE27626. This is going to look like once it's installed. You can see it's a nice large piece of PVC pipe. It's going to go around some 16 gauge galvanized steel that will prevent rusting. It's going to clamp onto your trailer with a no drill design. That will extend out 13" from the outside of your trailer frame to the inside of our tubing. These are going to be great for when you're loading your boat up by yourself and you have it in the water you can actually see visually where you want to line your boat up to set it on your trailer. Let's go ahead and show you how to install them. We're going to have 2 different style U bolts.

One's going to have this little notch in it. It's going to allow us to pass over our top for our criss cross design. We'll set the flat one on our frame rail first. Then in the diagonal we're going to lay the other one with the notch in it across the top. Then, we'll take our galvanized bracket.

We're going to slide it into place depending on the width of your trailer or which side you want it to go in or out. Take our flat washer and a nylon lock nut and put them on the criss cross so it will hold it up. Once we have them loosely started, we're going to run them down until our bracket just touches the frame. We're going to want to make sure we center it up. You want to make it to where it's still going to be loose enough to slide around. We're going to take our bracket, the side with the notch is going to go up. I'm going to loosely slide it into to position.

We can take our piece of PVC that has the notch cut in it as well. We're going to line that notch up with the one on there. We'll set our distance from our trailer about an inch or so away, maybe an inch and a half. Once you have it in the position you'd like it in to your liking. When you're adjusting this you want to make sure that the widest part of your boat is going to be able to pass through these easily and not scuff it on the sides. We'll go around and run these down in a criss cross pattern. That's going to complete our install. That's going to do it for our look at and install of the CE Smith Post Style Guide Ons for Boat Trailers 40" Tall in Black, part #CE27626 on our trailer..

This was my first experience with buying from trailer and was not disappointed. I purchased a set of 40” Heavy Duty Black Post-Style Guide-Ons for my Tracker Pro-170 bass boat and item was received exactly as described on the web site and shown in the videos. The posts were incredibly easy to install (thanks to the instructions included and the web site video). Outstanding customer service and product support! The post guide-one are excellent and perform superbly in assisting trailering of my boat. 611228

I love these guide ons. They are like having a buddy along with you to help trailer your boat. They are also great for backing your boat trailer in the dark, you don't lose it due to the lights.

Review from a similar CE Smith Post-Style Guides in Boat Trailer Parts


I ordered a set of ce smith boat trailer guiding post via phone, instead of online, because I had specific questions about the product prior to purchasing. My specific questions were answered by Heidi M who was familiar with the product. She took my CC information and processed the order successfully. I received the product via USPS free shipping (purchase was more than 99$) on-time as promised. This is my first time doing business with etrailer, overall I am very satisfied with etrailer service, website and personnel. Will definitely purchase from etrailer again, based on my positive experience, will recommend etrailer for friends and others. 598154

Quick delivery on the trailer guides, easy installation on my galvanized trailer, although the product fit perfectly, I was not sure if the steel parts were galvanized so I decided to clear coat all the parts. Not a deal breaker looks good. 479446


Comments

Overall pleased but had one issue with one guide bar collapsing where it bends, after a reinforcement was added seems to be holding up. Needs to be thicker material in that area.

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

Review from a similar CE Smith Post-Style Guides in Boat Trailer Parts


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


Comments

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.

Review from a similar CE Smith Post-Style Guides in Boat Trailer Parts


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


Comments

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.

Review from a similar CE Smith Post-Style Guides in Boat Trailer Parts


The clamps are galvanized and rugged. Two bolt lengths were provided so I had a wide I-beam I wouldn't be off to the hardware store. My 3" I-beam used the shorter bolts and they included washer and nylon insert lock nuts. The 90 degree bend metal box tubes are also rugged; didn't measure the wall thickness, but its certainly stiff enough for the job. PVC pipes and caps included. Probably took me 15 minutes to install and that's because I was fussy with the gap I wanted between the PVC pipe and the rub rail on the boat. The only blemish is that the tubes have black marks on them most likely from shipping as the metal box tubes are shipped loose they can bang around and mark up the PVC pipes. The hardware is bagged so there is very little chance of coming up short on the hardware. The tubes are long, and I do mean long, but with some of the steep boat launch ramps I use having that added length is a lot better than coming up short. Overall, it's a quality item and if you want all white pipes, be prepared to clean them up when you are ready to install them. Try some naptha first and if that doesn't do it, go to a mild ScotchBrite pad. I have not yet launched or retrieved my 20' Key West with these trailer guides in place, but I expect no problems whatsoever. 268971


Comments

Been a year with a dozen launch and retrievals will never have another boat on a trailer without them. Absolutely no problems with the hardware easy to adjust even after a year in and out of salt water and the amount of flex in the tubes is just right to keep the boat aligned on the trailer without impact. Excellent.

One side of Kit non functional due to manufacturing error. PVC tube too small to fit over square metal post. The light Kit looked nice, but the wire was too short to fit down and out of the 75" tubes. Waiting to hear from Company as to what happens next. 264905

Review from a similar CE Smith Post-Style Guides in Boat Trailer Parts


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

One year later and they are still performing as they did on day one. No worries with these guides.
