Guide Your Boat Into and Out of the Water

When your boat trailer has been backed down the ramp and is partially submerged, these 65" 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 posts also provide a visual aid to help you back your boat trailer down the ramp when you're unloading your boat.


Galvanized Steel Guide-On Mounted with Ubolts

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 top of 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.

Galvanized Steel

Galvanized steel parts are hot-dipped in zinc after being stamped. This creates a coating that is typically 3 mil to 5 mil thick. This thick, all-around coating allows galvanized steel products to provide years of use without rusting or corroding.

Great product. Exactly as described and prompt delivery. Installed them, but have not had a chance to use them in loading boat as yet. Only negative was packaging. White plastic poles need to be protected from rolling around and getting scratched up against metal brackets. I had to sand both plastic poles to remove rough edges and scratches caused by shipping. The sanding removes the original glossy smooth finish on poles.

It is disappointing that it arrived and the poles needed to be smoothed out. I will have our customer service team reach out to you.



Guide-Ons work great. An absolute MUST if you need to launch and recover boat solo. I added pads to the poles and tightened up clearance to boat which really helped in alignment.


Product arrived in a timely manner and Korren was very easy to deal with and answered the questions I had about the product.


I purchased the HD 65" tall guide posts for my shorelandr boat trailer.
Everything in this kit was excellent.
The galvanized finish was very thick in all over.
I purchased the taller set so that I could cut the posts to custom match the height I wanted.
The PVC posts are the heavy wall thickness tubing.
The u-bolts are excellent strength and assembled without any problems.
I have used this setup for over a year now and I would never be without it.
Loading my boat in high wind conditions is straight and controlled positioning onto the trailer bunks.
I highly recommend this product.


Looks good but on delivery, box was busted open, parts where loose and plastic bag was ripped open with nuts and washers are missing plus 2 u-bolts have damaged threads.

I need 2 U-bolts and nuts washers to go with them, see list below,
1-Part# u-bolt straight (15260G)
1-Part# u-bolt formed (15261G)
4-Part# hex nuts (10830G)
4-part# lock washers (10970G)
4-part# washers (10960G)

I am sorry that the box had broken open before delivery. Customer Service will be in contact so we can have the missing hardware sent out for you.


Excellent product. Quality galvanized metal and PVC. About 30 minutes to install both sides. Very easy to adjust to the desired position. E-Trailer’s customer service is unmatched; I returned a product earlier this week that did not fit, and replaced it with these post guide-ons. Delivery in 48 hours all the way down to S. Georgia. Have not used the product yet, but am confident they will serve their purpose for years to come. If not, I’ll update my comments.



After a year of use my initial review remains unchanged. If you are on the fence as to whether this product is worth the price, my suggestions is to go for it. Be sure of the size and fitment of course, but worth the every penny.


Very easy to assemble on trailer will be trying it out this weekend I’m sure it will work great as I have read allot of reviews and everyone seems to rate them highly.

It’s working great, especially on windy days.


These trailer guides were the easiest after market accessories to install. The quality is excellent and the simplicity to install amazing.



These guides have proven to be very helpful!! The large pontoon boat I purchased was challenging when trying to load it on the trailer- especially when my wife had the duty to get it on straight. Now it has made the loading of the boat extreme easier and a whole lot less frustrating and has helped our marriage They work great !!!!


After watching the video, I decided to try this product. My order was immediately processed and shipped. When examining the parts, I was impressed by the weight of the 12 guage steel bars and PVC covers. There are different ways to install but I chose not to cover the outer frame. I loosely installed the hardware and the carefully slid the posts in to my liking. My wife launches and loads the boat while I do the trailer thing. We cannot believe the difference ! The poles provide a great picture site and easily guides the boat's inner rails and on to the trailer. What we both will say, "Why didn't we use these years ago" !


It works but falls apart and has to be repaired constantly…. I have a yamaha ar240…. Maybe its too small of a guard

There is one taller set that is part # CE27636. It is 75 inches tall.


I just completed installation on my boat trailer. It took little time and is solid as a rock. I can't wait to load my boat without missing the bunks. This product came with all needed parts and as described.


Installed easy! Instructions are great!


Arrived quickly and as described. Assembled quickly and easily. I would highly recommend these trailer guides and this company.


Excellent product! Well designed, very sturdy and easy to install. Works great on my pontoon trailer.


Great product. Easy assembly except one bolt hole had some excess galvanizing that wouldn’t allow the bolt to push through, but the bolt screwed right in with a wrench.


Our family bought a 24 foot boat and have to trailer it and launch every time we use it. Before we purchased the guidons we would have trouble Centering the boat on the trailer. 15 minute install on the trailer, all the difference in the world. Well spent money!


Delivered quickly, Excellent quality, Guide post video helped with measurements. I followed the instructions and boat went on easy and straight. Also makes a happy wife who was nervous to trailer boat!
Wheels and brackets are of good quality. Thank You.


The guide poles are a great addition to my trailer.
They are very well constructed, heavy duty to stand up to the task of centering my Tritoon. Highly recommended.


The guide-ons were made of good quality, but were not helpful in my case on a pontoon trailer. The side curtain panels that go around the boat kept me from seeing the guide-ons at the time when I needed to, even if I stood up at the drivers seat, I could not see them. After hitting them several times, in the blind, I ended up taking them off, and going back to trying to learn to use the bunk boards again.


Box had minor shipping damage. No separation of contents and galvanized steel brackets jumped around in box. All parts accounted for.


The quality is top notch. Very strong materials. Mounting was a breeze. I did not have a chancee to actually use it at the lake due winter here in PA.


It has met my expectations as far as quality. I have installed it on my trailer but haven't had the opportunity to allow it to guide my boat from the water onto the trailer.


Box was open on arrival. All parts seem to be here.


outstanding service. corrected my order on a Monday and received product on a Wednesday. Great service


Perfect fit, great quality product, delivered fast, and a excellent replacement for the original guides that went missing.


I was surprised to see the actual steel post only about 40 inches and not 65 like advertised. The PVC pipe is 65 inches.
