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 75-inch-tall guideposts that are mounted on the rear corners of the frame will stick out of the water, giving you two highly visible targets to guide your boat between for loading. The PVC posts 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 posts over the galvanized steel support posts. Then use the included U-bolt hardware to 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 inch.


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 mm) 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.

The box arrived torn up, but everything seemed to be in it. The installation was straightforward, I was worried about the strength of the materials, for heavy duty seemed very lightweight. My fears realized, floating the pontoon off the trailer with a 9 mph side wind did irreparable damage to the guides (engine wasn't used). Very disappointed with the construction and at a high price. This was just junky design and material, an expensive lesson.

I put these on my boat trailer a year ago and love them. I was skeptical about how they'd hold up being bumped as I load/unload the boat, but they've been super tough. For what it's worth, the boat is 29.5" and 7,000 pounds.


Comments
These are still holding up well. If you do happen to bump them a little to hard, they can easily be pushed into their original position with no issues to longevity.

21 ft fishing barge single axle trailer. Works great.easy install. All part arrived fast. Fit as expected. Aids in loading the pontoon. I added reflectors for night operations to see post with my pontoon spot light. Recommend MFG add to product. Would refer to anyone.

Just installed the trailer guides. My galvanized trailer has an odd slant vs a horizontal frame member in the back so i honked down on the U bolts as hard as i could. Its firm and secure but i may cut, drill, thriugh bolt the uprights to my trailer frame, the skirt around the step. If anyone is wondering, the galvanized tubing is top notch material. Durable for sure.

I purchased post style trailer guides for my pontoon boat. Easily installed great directions. This will make it easy to keep my pontoon boat on the trailer straight while loading.

Product was easy to install. Arrived as described and on time. Washers were missing, but I managed to install using other washers. Will be used to assist our boat loading onto the trailer.

I was hoping these Guides would help make sure the trailer was lined up with the ramp. They severed that purpose on our triple axle trailer. The side effect is the angle post had to come out so wide that is caused additional width and challenges in towing in narrow roadways.

Knowledgeable sales and tech support, fast shipment, and easy to install. Wide enough and tall enough to use on my 24' Suntracker Party Barge on the original Trailstar trailer.

Extremely fast shipping, great price, and the 75 inch posts will significantly improve getting our pontoon boat back on it's trailer

The mounting hardware for the trailer guides does not match my trailer frame very well and would always bend over if only slightly rubbing against the guides while loading on the trailer. I had to construct some blocks to mount next to the trailer frame to keep the mounting brackets from twisting over. The first season of owning the guides did not work very well at all. After installing my mods, the second season seems to be working better and the guides are more rigid and durable.

Love my guide posts for my trailer. I have a 24' Sea Ray and these guide post made it possible to launch and retrieve the boat by myself with assurance that the boat is sitting on the trailer correctly. As an added bonus they are visible to me as I am backing up the empty trailer when it would normally go out of sight with steep launch ramps. Making retrieving the boat so easy.

etrailer has done it again. I was searching all of the boat online sites and could not find what I need. I did not think of checking etrailer. I found exactly what I needed. It is almost impossible to see my tri-toon trailer in the water. Not a problem now. These things are very sturdy.



- CE27636
by:

Good, heavy duty product. I recently put some on my 17.5 foot boat trailer, and now my cabin cruiser trailer. They are very helpful to keep the boat in place when launching, also very helpful to get the boats perfectly centered on the trailers when pulling out the lake. Very much worth it,

  • Can CE Smith 75 inch Tall Guide Ons be Used with 26-1/2 foot Cruiser
    I am pretty sure you are asking about the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers - 75" Tall # CE27636 which are 75 inch tall guide posts and not 75 inch tall guy clothes. The brackets are made of galvanized steel and were designed for heavier boats so it would work great for you although it doesn't have a length or weight capacity limit. We don't have a way to determine if these are exact same as what you have on your Chapparal.

  • How to Install 75 inch CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons to 2x6 Boxed Trailer Frame
    For the 75" tall CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers # CE27636 to fit your 2" x 6" boxed frame you'll need to visit your local hardware store for U-Bolts that are 7/16" diameter and 6-1/2" long while using the CE Smith Frame Straps # CE20016GA as CE Smith doesn't have any U-Bolts solutions long enough for your application. We have reached out to CE Smith in the past and this is the solution that they presented to us for 2" x 6" boxed trailer frames.

  • Can the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons That Install Outside of Frame Be Used On Pontoon Trailer
    The CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers part # CE27636 which install outside of the frame can be used on a pontoon boat trailer but you don't see this much because the floats are really large and usually stick out further. Therefore, you need to be sure the 19" of adjustment outside the frame will work with your boat/trailer combo. These will be the tallest available at 75".

Therefore, you could purchase the 75" long white poles with part # CE27636 and spay paint them black or you could just purchase the 60" long black ones with part # CE27646. Is is also important to note that the u-bolts that come with the black posts are a bit shorter than the u-bolts included with the white posts so if your...

  • How to Gauge Height of Guide-Ons for Boat Trailer
    When installing guide-ons on your boat trailer, like part # CE27636, you want to make sure that they extend high enough that they are easily visible when you are loading your boat. If you feel comfortable loading your boat with the guide-ons being barely visible, then you will not need ones that are very tall. The CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons # CE27636 that I referenced are 75 inches tall.

  • CE Smith Boat Guide-Ons Recommendation for a Trailer with 3x5-1/2 inch Frame
    I have a solution for you, but the U-bolts included with the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers # CE27636 are only good for trailer frames that are up to 5-1/2 inches. You would also need the CE Smith Extra Long U-Bolt Kit part # CE11416 as this will work on frames up to 6 inches so it would work well for you.

  • Can Guideposts on CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons be Cut Down to Size
    The upright steel portion of the guideposts on the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers # CE27636 is only around 39 inches. The remaining height consists of just the outer layer PVC pipe that slides over the steel posts. With this in mind, you should be able to easily cut down the height on these guide-ons and just replace the top cap once the desired height is reached. Just keep in mind that doing this will void the warranty of the product.

  • Which Is The Right Guide Post Size For My 170 Bayliner?
    It depends on how tall your boat is. You want the posts to sit up above where the top sides of your boat are. You can see in the video I've included. So I recommend getting the 60" # CE27640 or the 75" # CE27636 guide ons.

The U-bolt that attaches the brackets to the trailer frame support the weight of the boat. There should be a bracket attached to each cross member of the trailer frame.
