CE Smith Boat Trailer Parts - CE27637

Galvanized steel guide-on posts keep your trailer in view when reversing down a boat ramp. Posts also provide markers on your trailer so you keep your boat centered when loading or unloading it. Ideal for saltwater use.


Features:

  • Guideposts provide a visual indicator on your trailer to help you load and unload your boat
    • Extends out of the water to help you center your boat while loading
    • Keeps your trailer in sight when backing it down a boat ramp
  • 12-Gauge, galvanized steel posts are strong and corrosion resistant
  • White PVC pipes slide over steel posts so you can see your submerged trailer
  • Simple installation on rear crossmember of trailer frame with included U-bolt hardware - no drilling required
    • Posts can be adjusted up to 19" away from your trailer
  • Made in the USA


Specs:

  • Application: trailer frames up to 4" wide x 5-1/4" tall
  • Overall height: 65"
  • PVC pipe diameter: 2-3/8"
  • Quantity: 2 boat guide-ons


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.


Installation

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.

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

Easy install. Product is as advertised and I am completely satisfied. I did ad longer uprights then the 4ft ones in the kit but the reason was the boat launch I use required it to keep my tail lights well out of the saltwater and above the gunnels of the boat when loading /unloading. 554336

Received the product shortly after placing my order. Instructions for installation were perfect as well as the online video. It only took me 30 minutes to install the boat guide-ons. All I needed was a ratchet. They look great! I already used them to hook up my boat to my truck and I lined up perfectly on my first try. I can't wait to see how they perform when getting my boat from the water back on my trailer. That used to be a struggle especially when there was a current. Again a great product. 551060

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

My wife and I received our item very quickly. The product is very high quality and we have installed it on our boat. The operation was very simple. Very helpful in launching boat. The guides enable you to ascertain at all times where the vessel is relative to the dock ..... especially necessary on inclined launching ramps which we have here on Lake Erie where we live. Would highly recommend the company and the product. 409189

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


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

Great product. I bought two sets. Shipment was extremely fastttttt.

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


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

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


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. 287946

Guide-ons that we needed for our boat lift. Boat lift manufacturer only offered a flimsy set. These are solid and wil hold up to many summers of boating fun. I had to order the extra long u-bolt kit because frame was over 5 inches tall. Make sure you measure your frame--u-bolt kit that comes in the box only fits 4 1/4 inch frame. 219054

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


I just put these on my boat trailer this past Saturday and haven't had my boat out to test them yet but from what I can tell so far, these are going to be pretty awesome. I've always avoided going to the lake if there is any kind of wind because it is no fun trying to trailer my boat with the wind blowing. These are very rigid and were the perfect height for my Stingray boat on my Phoenix trailer. I ordered these one day, they were shipped the same day and I received them the next day! I have to admit though, the place where they were shipped from is only about 70-75 miles from my house. Take some advice - I tried painting these to match my trailer and the 3 coats of self etching primer and 3 coats of paint did not stick to the galvenized steel even after proper preparation and drying time, so don't bother (unless I just did it all wrong). I shouldn't have even wasted my time and money on primer and paint. I AM, however, glad I ordered and installed these! 395867

I previously had custom boat guides on my trailer, but decided to try a commercially made product. Etrailer shipped right away and I received it in a few days. Instructions are straight forward, and it's not hard to setup. I also opted for the Lighting kit for additional lighting at night. The only thing I with CE Smith would add is the ability to adjust the angle of the bracket for boats that are V hulled for a better fit. 209355

The ordering was easy and quick. It arrived on schedule and it was easy to install. I did not use the product for a pontoon boat. I used it on my 22 foot off shore fishing boat trailer to act as a guide on the rear of the trailer when loading my boat. I did not use the tubing over the bracket. I installed rollers on the inside and mounted my trailer lights near the top of the brackets to keep them out of the water when loading and unloading the boat. It looks perfect and I know it will work well for my needs. 153606

The package arrived with the outer box torn in one area but the inner box & items were not damaged. The hardware that came with the guides just didn't fit my trailer, but I was able to use the existing u-bolts that were still in pretty good shape to attach the new guide poles that replaced rusted out, 6 year old OEM guides on my trailer. Installation was easy, about an hour 146567

I painted these first and then put the pvc tubes on and then installed them on the trailer. My family has loaded the pontoon boat on the trailer twice now with no problems. Before these it would take three or more chances; should have gotten them sooner. They are heavier and better made than I was expecting. Worth every penny. 141260

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

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


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

Boat guide arrived on time and all parts required in package. Ranger boat trailer has a fender well that goes to back of trailer so your support folks advised that I install on top of C frame. All went well but the Ranger is wide so the guide insert at the frame is 1.5 inches short of going to the end of the bracket. Guide is really sturdy and should work fine. Only other choice would be to use 5" U bolts and move the mounting bracket forward and inch. I have not been able to find 5" brackets in hardware stores or on line.....do you know where they are available? Guide looks great and look forward to trying it out at the lake. 522911

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
