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.

Product is not as pictured. It's a bent tube, not corner brackets as indicated. I really needed corner brackets to make it work for my application. Unfortunately my teenage son was very helpful and installed it before I got home so I'm stuck with it as is. It will most likely fail for my application.

Teenage sons can be helpful on occasion. I would like to help as well. Would you be able to send a picture of what you received?

Thank you for your email. Please find a picture of the unit attached.

It was as I suspected in that we had old and new stock together. We do have a set with the square brackets that we can send. Do you want a replacement sent out? We would also send you a label via email to have the old style returned.

Thomas

Im sorry Ive been out of cell coverage for a few days. It would be great if you could send the one with the brackets. I will remove the others and return them when I get the other brackets. I really appreciate your help on this. Thanks again



by:

This is the best money I have spent on our boat in a long time. I have a heavy 24' aluminum fishing boat that is not easy to get on the trailer and line up correctly. Now it is a breeze to line up in any current or wind situation and it sits on the trailer perfectly. I am recommending these to all my boating friends.



by:

Installation was very easy. After fine tuning the guides are a great help when trailering, especially a pontoon.



by:

Excellent set of guide ons for our boat. Customer service is great to work with too.

Robert

Working great. Easy loading on the River. It’s always moving for sure.



by:

They survived last boating season and show no signs of slowing down. Great goal posts to guide me in to the additional roller guides further up on the pontoon trailer.



by:

Was easy to install. And worth the money just to be able to see where the trailer is when backing without the boat on it. Works great for getting boat on the trailer when trailer is under water.



by:

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.



by:

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.



by:

The posts make it easier to trsiler the boat. They have taken a beating and still standing.



by:

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.



by:

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.



by:

My guide ons showed right on time . I installed them in under 30 minutes. Really easy instructions. super strong . I got the 75” ones because of the launch we go off of is really steep at low tide .



by:

Seems to be a sturdy product. The PVC tubes were not clean. It appears the galvanized coating on the metal parts transferred to the white PVC tubes. Does not look very good. But the product should perform as advertised.



by:

Excellent! Ordered Monday, got then on Wednesday with free shipping!! Easy install, literally 15 minutes and done!! This will make it easier to load the boat and back the trailer!!



by:

Excellent product and fits well as am using on my Sunstream Floatlift boat lift. There should have at least been some packing material to avoid damage and majour scratching to the PVC extenders by the L shaped metal standards......



by:

They bend too easily. You barely hilt them with your boat and they bend.



by:

Super easy to install. We have had them for over a year and we love them. Very stable and secure. We originally bought them for our pontoon boat and when we traded it for a fishing boat we wanted to keep our load guides. My husband was able to easily modify them by cutting them shorter and putting the cap back on. It’s so nice to load the boat and know it is sitting perfectly on the trailer. Can’t say enough good things about the product!



by:

Great product, easy installation, quick delivery



by:

Fast shipping, great service.



by:

Easy application 30 minute install would recommend



by:

product as advertised. excellent customer service/quick delivery. however.....MEASURE your trailer beam support where you are going to attatch....I have a twin axle trailer for a 26 foot deck boat. the frame beams are 8 inches (3" by 8"). That said, the u-bolts were not long enough. I contacted the company and the longest ubolts available from them were 6 inches. the ones included in the product are less than that. I had to special order 4 flat u-bolts from another company at the cost of $xx. (3" by 8 1/4" by 3/8" u-bolts). they have not yet arrived so I am hoping this will solve the problem. I suggest company add longer u-bolts to the options.



by:

I own a 24' Montery M45 OB and my trailer came without guides. Upon loading my boat while in the water the rear would sway and of delay my loading. After visiting etrailer.com and learning about the CE Smith Guides I purchased these. Perfect !
Easy to install and my boat loads perfectly each time. The 75" was the right choice too.



by:

The Box arrived damaged and stained the product inside was okay with the exception of the PVC pipe. It is scratched and scored deep into the pipe. It has black marks on it as if it has been used already. Take note that the 75" height is not all metal it is only 40" of metal up the side the rest is PVC that slides over the top so you have 35" of PVC and 40" of metal. I sent these concerns to customer service the minute I opened the package and nobody responded back just a link for this feedback so this is what you get. We will see how it holds up on the water and on the road doesn't look like it can take more than a couple hits kind of expensive for a piece of metal and PVC pipe. Tried to upload photos can't even do that it won't let me. I will say that installation was a breeze I had it done in about 20 minutes so there is one positive which is also why I bought it.

Thank you for the review and bringing this to our attention. Our customer service team should be reaching out to you in the near future.



by:

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.



by:

Brackets were not big enough for my trailer (not wide enough) no where did I see an option for bracket size when ordering that I recall

Etrailer Expert

It is listed on the product page that the brackets would fit frames that are 3 inches wide and 5.25 inches tall. We do have a set of u bolts that will fit with a 6 inch tall frame part # CE11416.

  • Dimensions of the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers # CE27636
    The CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers # CE27636 that you referenced has a height of 75 inches and sticks out up to 19 inches from the trailer frame it is attached to.

  • How Tall are the Metal Upright Supports in CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers
    The metal uprights in the CE Smith Guide-on set # CE27636 are 39 inches tall. The PVC pipe is 62-1/2 inches tall. There is about 27 inches of the metal upright inside of the PVC pipe when it is assembled.

  • Will the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers Work with Pontoon Boat Wider Than 19"
    In regards to the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers part # CE27636, if you need to extend the uprights more than 19" from outside of the frame you'd have to replace the horizontal bar stock with a longer option. It's removable so that shouldn't be too much of an issue so then you'd just need to take the bar stock to a local supply store and match it up with one that has a length that would work for your trailer. Please keep in mind, this isn't recommend by the manufacturer...

  • 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.

  • Dimensions of Metal Uprights of the CE Smith Guide-on set # CE27636

  • 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.

  • How To Choose Correct Height CE Smith Post-Style Guide-On's for Boat Trailers
    There are a few factors that go into selecting the correct height of boat guide-on. It varies by setup but if you don't know what height you need you can simply go with an option longer than you'll need and then trim as you see fit. The CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers part # CE27636 is the tallest option at 75" and can easily be cut to fit you exact height requirement. You really won't know how tall you need until you launch the boat with the guide-on's in place. It comes...

  • 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".

  • Recommended Trailer Guide-Ons for Classic Sailboat
    You are correct in stating that the guideposts on the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers - 60" Tall # CE27640 will only adjust out to 13 inches from your trailer. The mounting brackets used will not be able to provide any additional length. If you need a bit more room and are okay with taller guideposts, I recommend the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons - 75" Tall # CE27636. These are quite a bit taller at 75 inches, but they are able to adjust out to 19 inches from your trailer,...

  • Choosing Boat Guide-Ons for 2010 Monterey 260 SCR's Boat Trailer
    When choosing boat guide-ons, the height of the post is personal preference. Guide-ons come in a variety of heights to accommodate different boats styles and preferences of different people. Since you have a Monterey 260SCR, the 75 inch tall, CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons that you looked at would work well in proportion with the size of the boat. If your boat trailer has an I-beam trailer frame, you will want part # CE27635. These posts will attach the to trailer frame with I-beam clamps...

  • 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.

  • 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 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.
