  • Guideposts provide a visual target on your trailer to help you load and unload your boat
    • Extend out of the water to help you center your boat while loading
    • Assist you in backing your trailer down the boat ramp

  • Quantity: 2 boat guide-ons


Note: Check with your state Department of Transportation for restrictions regarding maximum trailer width.


Guide Your Boat Into and Out of the Water with Ease

When your boat trailer has been backed down the ramp and is partially submerged, these 60" 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 pipes also provide a visual aid to help you back your boat trailer down the ramp when you're unloading and loading your boat.


Installation

The posts are simple to install. Slide the PVC pipes over the pre-galvanized steel support posts. Then mount the posts on the top 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".


Pre-Galvanized Steel

Pre-galvanized steel parts are stamped from a sheet of steel after it has already been galvanized. The edges of pre-galvanized parts often lose their zinc coating during the stamping process. Because of the thinness of the coating (less than 1 mil) and the fact that the edges remain exposed, pre-galvanized parts can begin to oxidize and rust quickly, so it's recommended that they be primed and painted.

Video Transcript for CE Smith Boat Trailer Post-Style Guide-Ons Review

Today, on our boat trailer, we'll be taking a look at installing the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers - 60" Tall in black, part number CE27646. Here's what it looks like once it's installed. You can see it's going to give us 60 inches of height to help guide on our lower boat trailers and some of our larger boats. It's going to be PVC on the top half here, and down here we're going to have 16 gauge galvanized steel with galvanized hardware. It's going to be a clamp on design with no drilling required, and it's going to fully adjustable. You can come out 13 inches from the side of your trailer to the end of our guide post, or we can move it in, depending on the roof of your trailer and your boat. Now let's go ahead and show you how to install them.

Now to begin our install, we're going to have two U-bolts. You're going to have one that's going to have a flat area across the top that's going to lay on our frame rail, and the one with the notch in it is going to go over top the other U-bolt forming our criss cross design. Start by placing our flat U-bolt in first, followed by the one with the groove in it. Then we'll take our galvanized plate, we're going to line it up with our U-bolts and we'll slip it up. Then we can take one of our flat washers and our nylon lock nut.

One thing you want to keep in mind is, when you're positioning this, you want to have it back as far as possible to the end of the trailer for your best results. Lightly snug these up. You want it to still be able to move around a little bit, so we can slide in our guide post. We're going to take our guide post and slide into position. Now we're going to make sure that we have the taller part going up with the notch, as the notch is going to line up with our PVC pipe at the bottom, keeping it from turning. We're going to slide it down from the top, and we're going to line up our notch with that tab on our bracket. We're going to take our guide post and we're going to bring it in.

You want about an inch to maybe inch and a half area between here and the widest part of your boat. If your boat gets wider in the middle, you want to make sure you measure for the width of that, so when it passes through our guide post, not going to cause any damage to the boat. We're going to want to tighten these in a criss cross pattern. Once we have them snug, we'll be ready to hit the lake. That's going to do it for our look at and install of the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailer - 60" Tall in black, part number CE 27646, on our boat trailer.

Solid product. Right out of the box you can tell this product is built to last. The metal is heavy gauge and the PVC coverings are well cut to fit. It went on perfectly and it’s not going anywhere. My only suggestion would be to add a couple self tapping screws and pre-drilled holes to secure the PVC to the uprights to prevent theft. I did this myself without a problem. 660804

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

Solid and sturdy once mounted. Easy installation and instructions were easy to follow. I recommend the 60” poles because you can cut them down if they’re too tall. I have a 21’ yamaha AR210. 523836

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.

The U-bolts were a inch and a half too short. I had to have some made to make it work. I've got a wide boat, 9'3", and the uprights are about as far out as I'm comfortable with. Overall, not a bad deal. 382980

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

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

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

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

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


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.

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

It has been a year and the guides still look great and work great. We used them a bit different. They were installed on a boat lift. When bringing in the boat they guide it in and keep it from hitting anything on the dock that might damage the boat. They also help hold it in place while the lift brings the boat up. It really works well. 273604

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

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.

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

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

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


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

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

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.

Is is also important to note that the u-bolts that come with the black posts are a bit shorter than the u-bolts included with the white posts so if your...

  • How To Install Rollers On a Pontoon Boat
  • It sounds like you are trying to bring the boat down closer to the trailer frame. I have personally not seen many setups that involve using keel rollers like the CE Smith Deep V Keel Roller Assembly part # CE10455G with a pontoon boat but if you have an idea in mind we do have these in various sizes. That said, I think the best option we can offer you to add a roller would be with the Dutton-Lainson Boat Trailer Deluxe Roller Bunks part # DL21741 and the CE Smith Bolster Bracket for Pontoon...

  • Available Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers
  • There is no one set correct length of guide-ons for a particular boat since the length you need can vary depending on the pitch of the boat ramp and how much of the trailer ends up submerged. The design of the trailer itself also matters since this affects where they can mount.

You can see all guide-ons we offer...

  • Can Post Style Guide Ons Be Used on the Front of a Boat Trailer
  • Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers, like # CE27646 are designed to help you load your boat onto your trailer. Because the rear of the trailer is backed into the water, it makes it really hard to see if you're loading it straight onto the trailer. The top portion of the Guide-Ons that is above the water give you a visual reference, making it easier to line up your boat with your trailer. That being said, if you would like to add a second set to the front of your trailer, there is...

  • Recommended Boat Guide-Ons For 24-Ft Pontoon Boat
  • I recommend 60-inch Black guide-ons like the CE Smith, part # CE27646. I recommend going with the 60-inch because you can always cut the upright PVC to a shorter length if you wish. If you decide on 50-inch, you can check out part # FGB1500100, which is only available in White.
