CE Smith Boat Trailer Parts - CE27638

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.

Great products....the posts, lights, and plug all were shipped quickly and easy to install. Finally have my lights up high and out of the water. I used 3 wire extension cord to run uncut lines from the lights to the plug at front of trailer. Should protect against corrosion issues. Pictures of my install are attached. Thanks 490407


Comments

This has worked out well. Lights and connections never touch the salt water. I did the same thing on the trailer for 25 center console.

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.

Quick delivery on the trailer guides, easy installation on my galvanized trailer, although the product fit perfectly, I was not sure if the steel parts were galvanized so I decided to clear coat all the parts. Not a deal breaker looks good. 479446


Comments

Overall pleased but had one issue with one guide bar collapsing where it bends, after a reinforcement was added seems to be holding up. Needs to be thicker material in that area.

I ordered a set of ce smith boat trailer guiding post via phone, instead of online, because I had specific questions about the product prior to purchasing. My specific questions were answered by Heidi M who was familiar with the product. She took my CC information and processed the order successfully. I received the product via USPS free shipping (purchase was more than 99$) on-time as promised. This is my first time doing business with etrailer, overall I am very satisfied with etrailer service, website and personnel. Will definitely purchase from etrailer again, based on my positive experience, will recommend etrailer for friends and others. 598154

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

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

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

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. 462114

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

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

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

Called etrailer to inquire about 60" lighted guide ons. that I had seen for less money on another site. The good news was that etrailer would price match, the bad news was that they were out of stock, but they did have the 75" guide ons in stock, so I ordered them. When they arrived I was disappointed to discover that they were not the lighted guide ons. The item that did arrive seems to be quality & well constructed. Since I didn't have the time to wait for the back ordered item, I didn't have the time to return the unlighted guide ons. 394953

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

I take my 15' Klamath aluminum boat out by myself all the time. I purchased these guides to make it easier for me to get the boat centered back on my EZ Loader trailer, especially on breezy days. My trailer is a lot narrower than my pick-up, meaning I can't see anything when backing the empty trailer down the ramp. Before I would have to remove my tonneau cover before leaving home (which is difficult by myself). At the ramp I would have to put the tailgate down to see where the trailer was going. These guides stick up far enough that I can leave the tonneau cover on and avoid that whole hassle. This is an added benefit I didn't originally anticipate. Great price. Mine was delivered ahead of schedule! Install is a breeze. People at etrailer are friendly and very helpful. The web site is easy to use. Product info is complete. I didn't need it, but liked that they include specific part numbers that might be needed for different size trailer frames. Besides the product instructions, the video guides are really nice to have available. I would definitely use etrailer again and would highly recommend them. 238631

Bought two sets for my pontoon/trailer. Work well. I did put longer PVC on the rear post so I could see them on approach. Strong enough to hold in wind. I did make the mistake of driving up on one and bent it over. Was unable to "bend" it back, just went by a muffler shop and they were able to fix my error. Would buy again and suggest where there is low wind and no current. For stronger, I would go with full length system to insure no "misses". Good product....good value. 360494

Running into issues with the install. Unfortunately your customer service tech was not too helpful, courteous but not very helpful. I have a Triton trailer, tandem axle, sidesteps in front & behind wheel fender. Doesn't appear to be a good place for the install unless half way up the boat. Any recommendations on the install? Previous customers with Triton trailers? I don't prefer "cutting" a hole or notch into my fender as the tech recommended. Thanks for your response. 463367


Comments

Anthony,Thank you for your review.I have contacted CE smith and the only way to install these guide-ons on your Triton is to drill two holes through the rear step so the mounting bracket can sit on top of the step and the u-bolts will go around the frame. It cant go under the step because it is too wide and the post would be too far from the boat. I hope this helps.

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 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 Guide-ons were a breeze to install and definitely help when the water is choppy and I am trying to pull the boat out of the lake! At some point, I may add the lighted caps, but for now these are great!! Just make sure to mount them on the trailer at a location that is wider than the widest point on the boat hull. My boat has somewhat of an hourglass shape that narrows towards the stern side. I mounted the guide-ons based on the stern width and just so happened to have the "duh" moment when standing back and admiring the new lights that I also purchased from etrailer... Adjusted them so that the ENTIRE boat would fit between them (HAHA) and the work great!.. Glad I caught it before trying to launch.... that would have been interesting... Easy to mount (and later adjust). etrailer has been a pleasure to do business with!! 273043

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

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

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.
