Aluminum guide-on posts keep your trailer in view when reversing down a boat ramp. Posts also provide markers so you keep your boat centered when loading or unloading it. Install posts on your trailer's I-beams. Great 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
  • Aluminum posts are lightweight and rustproof
  • White PVC pipes slide over aluminum posts so you can see your submerged trailer
  • Stainless steel hardware secures posts directly to your trailer's I-beam
    • Posts can be adjusted up to 19" away from your trailer
    • Drilling is required
  • Made in the USA


Specs:

  • Application: I-beam trailer frames
  • 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

Aluminum Guide-On Mounted with Ubolts

To install the guide-ons, slide the PVC posts over the aluminum support posts. After drilling 4 holes into your trailer's I-beam, use the included 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.


Rustproof Aluminum Construction

Aluminum offers excellent, long-term defense against rust and corrosion, making it great for saltwater applications. It is naturally rustproof, unlike steel, which must be treated with a rust-resistant coating that can break down over time.

One of two PVC pipes would not slip over the aluminum guide. It required a rubber mallet and a substantial amount of silicone spray to pound and ease it down even after filing the aluminum guide corners and top. 732629

I love the rail holders and the guide post both. I had to put wood guide rods from one side to the other in the post to hold them straight but once I done that and got them tight they are wonderful. I love them and appreciate you following up. Only thing better would be if you included tubing in the package to use for that purpose instead of the wooden rods I had to use.

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


These work really well. Extremely easy to install, probably 15-20 min total and all you need is a 9/16" deep-socket/ratchet. I put these on a galvanized trailer for my Yamaha boat and they look like they came on the trailer from the factory. The 5' height was perfect for the Yamaha, which sits quite high in the water. Gettting the boat onto the trailer was typically a challenge, but with these it just guided right on, first try! 561820

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


I am very pleased with this product. These guides are really nice, well made, went on easy, and saved a ton of time. I used a slightly longer PVC pipe on the rear guides to help see them when the trailer was submerged. They're now 28" vs 22". Probably not necessary but I tend to overdo things. etrailer is now saved on my favorites for future needs. 486120

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


My trailer and boat disappeared behind my truck while towing it. These guide-ons will not only assist me in loading from the water, but combined with the light mounting brackets, I now have a visual in my rear mirrors while I'm driving. Installation was a breeze! I invested in an electrician's snake, that aided tremendously in passing the wires down the PVC posts and staying out of the angled tubes. 639823

Great product. I bought two sets. Shipment was extremely fastttttt. I glued the PVC cap on and ran a stainless steel self tapper on the inside of the PVC so they don't blow off when trailering unloaded even though Anna @etrailer said they SHOULD NOT...........I don't like the word SHOULD!!! 521853

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


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

Very happy with guide on post! The brackets fit my huge 7.5 x 4.5 I beams on my trailer! This trailer hauls a 2001 Sea Ray 280 Sundancer that is 31.9 ft long and 9.5 feet wide. This kit works perfect and came with all the hardware I needed! 668308

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


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

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


The clamps are galvanized and rugged. Two bolt lengths were provided so I had a wide I-beam I wouldn't be off to the hardware store. My 3" I-beam used the shorter bolts and they included washer and nylon insert lock nuts. The 90 degree bend metal box tubes are also rugged; didn't measure the wall thickness, but its certainly stiff enough for the job. PVC pipes and caps included. Probably took me 15 minutes to install and that's because I was fussy with the gap I wanted between the PVC pipe and the rub rail on the boat. The only blemish is that the tubes have black marks on them most likely from shipping as the metal box tubes are shipped loose they can bang around and mark up the PVC pipes. The hardware is bagged so there is very little chance of coming up short on the hardware. The tubes are long, and I do mean long, but with some of the steep boat launch ramps I use having that added length is a lot better than coming up short. Overall, it's a quality item and if you want all white pipes, be prepared to clean them up when you are ready to install them. Try some naptha first and if that doesn't do it, go to a mild ScotchBrite pad. I have not yet launched or retrieved my 20' Key West with these trailer guides in place, but I expect no problems whatsoever. 268971


Comments
Been a year with a dozen launch and retrievals will never have another boat on a trailer without them. Absolutely no problems with the hardware easy to adjust even after a year in and out of salt water and the amount of flex in the tubes is just right to keep the boat aligned on the trailer without impact. Excellent.

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

I am very pleased. The guides arrived very quickly -like two days -and were easy to install. I have ordered everything for my used trailer including spare tire, trailer hitch receiver and the ball mount. The ball mount gave me an 8in rise which is what I needed for my Toyota Tacoma. Etrailer follows up and does a great job. 602792

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


Haven't tried these out yet but did get them installed. The PVC tube was extremely hard to get on. I had to beat it with a hammer and piece of wood and the slit didn't line up properly so that was a bummer. No way to take it off it's so tight. It actually cut into the PVC on the 4 corners so it will have to be cut off if ever taken off. That is disappointing. We will see how it works when I go to the lake but I'm assuming it will work as it should. 357915


Comments
They work but mine hit a tree branch and bend them down, I can bend them back up but they just seem to move around a lot. Not real solid but I still like them.

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


They were great quality, well built, very sturdy. However they were not wide enough. I'm using them but only about an inch of the guide post touches my trailer's I-beam. I have to be careful not to bump them too hard when loading the boat or they move. Also, the U-bolts were too short for my trailer's I-beam so I had to discard them and purchase longer bolts and make some plates to go under the i-beam. Otherwise I am very pleased with them. I mainly needed them to help when backing the trailer and they work great for this. 668579


Comments
The U-bolts included are compatible with frame members up to 4-1/4 inches tall. If the frame is taller than that, up to 5-1/4 inches tall, a larger U-bolt set is available as part # CE11416
