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.

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


Comments
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" !

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.

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.

Work great. My ramp is on an angle and it was always hard to get pontoon on correctly. My boat is heavy but these work perfectly.

Heavy duty and easy to put on.

Makes getting my boat back on the trailer way easier. Keeps it centered while I pull the truck up. Still in good shape after a years use.

Sturdy, and well finished. Just enough flex, but still rigid enough to do keep the boat in position.

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


The specification for this model states it can only reach 13 inches out from the frame but I needed 14 inches for my pontoon. However from the product photos I could see that the vertical arm is longer than the cross arm so I thought I could mount it “upside down” and get the reach I need. Because it is a bargain I took a chance and ordered it. As shown in the photos it worked perfectly. I not only got the extra reach (width) but it also lowered the top of the PVC pipe so it clears my deck which I also wanted. Now I can simply pull the back of the pontoon over until it hits the bumper and it will be centered perfectly. To temporarily provide the visibility needed to back into deep water I simply slide a 5 foot section of half inch PVC pipe inside as shown. It is an excellent product, very heavy duty and I highly recommend it.

Still working great.

I installed one set and it has really helped the tritoon align when loading at the rear of the trailer. I put a guide on each side of the middle toon. Love it !

Still loving the guides, big help with loading.

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


These are very helpful getting our pontoon onto the bunk trailer because needing a deeper ramp, the rear inside load guides are often too deep, so these posts help me guide it straight onto the trailer with ease. The first time we used them there was a little wind, so i just pinned the front of the pontoon on the inside of one of them and slowly worked my way between them both, and in no time i was lined up and ready to pull all the way onto the trailer. installation took about 25 minutes, some minor adjustments once i got them secured. i have them about 1.5" from the deck of the pontoon, this allows a little wiggle room, but also forces me to be in the right spot. Such an easy install, just a ratchet and a single deep-socket was all i needed.

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


Took a while to get them through no fault of etrailer as they were down to 1 light in stock and everything seems to take longer to get it. Install went great, installed the lights on the back of the posts for better visibility and they look awesome.

Easy and solid install within 30 minutes. Photos show item in black, but that’s because I painted them to match the trailer.


Comments
It’s been great! After a little adjustment of their positions, loading and unloading has been a breeze. And as any boater can tell ya, loading a trailer can be tricky if it doesn’t line up.

Ask the Experts about this CE Smith Boat Trailer Parts

  • Possible Guide Upgrade for CE Smith 65" Guide Ons To Prevent Bending
    The guide 65” poles/markers on the CE Smith # CE27637 Guide Ons are only meant as markers to show you where the trailer is. While they can endure some pressure in relation to a straight on approach, off angle pressure which can occur with water currents, high wind, and off angle approaches, can cause damage to the guide poles and/or brackets. The leverage exerted by the long poles can cause the poles or brackets to bend. In a way this is good as that much leverage would otherwise bend...

  • Dimensions of Tubing Used in CE Smith CE27637 Post-Style Trailer Guide-Ons
    The galvanized tubing used on the CE Smith # CE27637 guide ons is 1-1/2 by 1-1/2 inches. I've linked to a product demonstration video that you might find helpful.

  • Dimensions and Steel Gauge of Upright Posts of CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons CE27637
    I checked with my contact at CE Smith about the posts of the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons # CE27637 that you referenced and they informed me that the metal uprights of this are 11 gauge steel, the upright is a 90 degree tube, 41-1/2 inches long (top to the bend), bottom bend of tube is 21”.

  • Guide Posts That Match The Angle Of The Sides Of My Boat
    I would not recommend bending the brackets on the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons # CE27637. These are really designed more as a visual reference for loading your boat. The Ark Ezi-Guides Self-Aligning Boat Trailer Loading System # AR74FR are more of the type of guides that you are looking for. These rubber rollers will help to center your boat on your trailer and roll smoothly into place. These can be used with the CE Smith Posts to load your boat onto the trailer.

  • Can the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers Be Installed Outside the Fenders
    The CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers part # CE27637 can be installed so that the posts sit outside the fenders on the trailer. That said, this may or may not put the trailer under a different classification therefore lighting changes could be needed. I recommend measuring the trailer with the posts installed and then checking with local state regulations to ensure you remain legal.

  • Available Guide-On Heights for Boat Trailer
    They sure do. They're available in several different lengths shorter than the 75 inch high # CE27636 guide-ons that you'd looked at. Here are the un-lighted versions: • 65 inches tall, part # CE27637 • 60 inches tall, part # CE27640 • 40 inches tall, part # CE27620 If you'd prefer lighted guide-ons, those are available as well in certain heights: • 60 inches tall, part # CE27760 • 40 inches tall, part # CE27740

  • Can 40" Tall Guide-Ons be Bolted to Trailer Frame for Extra Height
    The 40" Tall CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons # CE27620 come with mounting hardware that bolts around your trailer frame, but since these won't have anything to do with the structural integrity of your trailer you can really mount them however you see fit. Since you mentioned wanting more height and increased visibility for guide-ons then you might be interested in the 40" Tall CE Smith Guide-Ons # CE27740 which come with LED lights, or the 65" Tall CE Smith Guide-Ons # CE27637.
