CE Smith Boat Trailer Parts - CE27760

Lighted guide-on posts make it easy to load your boat onto your trailer and safer to transport it at night. They attach to the rear of your trailer and extend out of the water, providing visual targets to center the boat between during loading.


Features:

  • Guideposts assist you in centering your boat as you load it onto your trailer
    • 1-1/2" Diameter, 16-gauge, pre-galvanized steel tubes are covered with 2" PVC piping for strength and durability
    • Simple installation on your trailer's rear frame rail with included hardware
  • LED lights ease loading process and make trailer more visible at night
    • Glows amber at front, bright red at rear
    • Alerts other drivers to your position
    • Makes trailer easy to see while you are backing it up or loading your boat
    • Features 1-piece, sealed units that are shockproof and waterproof
    • Activates automatically with your trailer's tail lights
    • Longer-lasting and more energy efficient and durable than incandescent lights
  • Simple installation
    • Wires into your trailer's tail lights
    • Adjusts out to 19" from trailer
  • Made in the USA


Specs:

  • Quantity: 2 boat guide-ons
  • Application: trailer frames up to 3" wide x 4-1/4" tall
    • Extra-long U-bolt kit (CE11416; sold separately) is required for mounting on frames up to 3" wide x 5-1/4" tall
  • Height: 60"
    • May be trimmed to a minimum of 40"


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


When your boat trailer has been backed down the ramp and is partially submerged, these 60" tall guideposts that are mounted at the rear corners of the frame will stick out of the water, giving you two highly visible targets to guide your boat between for loading. The built-in LED lights on the posts stand out at night, making it easier for you to load your boat in the dark and for other drivers to see your trailer when you're on the road. The pre-galvanized steel support posts mount horizontally on top of or below your trailer's frame rail. Just slide the posts into the boat guide supports and secure the posts so that the distance between them correctly matches the width of your boat.


Pre-Galvanized Steel

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

Video Transcript for CE Smith Boat Trailer Parts - Guides - CE27760 Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at part number CE27760. This is the CE Smith Post-Style Guide Ons with LED lights for boat trailer. Once you have the PVC piping over the galvanized arms, it's going to give you a 60" height. It can be trimmed down to 40" if needed. Real quick just to give you a rundown of how I have everything laid out. We're going to have all of our mounting hardware on this side as well as one of the LED lights. I just just did not install this one because I wanted to show what it looks like without it onto the PVC tubing.

All of our hardware, we have our quick splice connectors that way we can easily tap into the wiring on our trailer. We're going to have the galvanized steel arms. These are going to be 16'gauge, pre-galvanized steel tubes, and they're going to be covered with the 2" PVC piping for strength and durability. These are going to measure 1-1/2" in diameter. Our tubing is going to measure 2" in diameter. Here on the tubing, I have 1 light already installed.

I also have the wire running out of the other end. Towards the end of the video, I'm going to connect it to our power source so you can see what it looks like when it's lit up. It's a very simple installation. It's going to install on the rear crossmember of the trailer frame with all the included hardware. This system is great. It's lighted.

They are going to be guide on posts. It's going to make it easier to load your boat onto your trailer. It's going to make it safer to transport at night. Again, they're just going to attach to the rear of your trailer. They're long enough so they're going to extend up and out of the water, which is going to provide a visual target to center the boat between during loading.

The LED lights ease the loading process quite a bit. It's going to make the trailer more visible in low-light settings or even at night. It goes amber at the front and red at the rear. It's going alert other drivers to your position. It's going to make the trailer easy to see while you're backing it up or loading your boat. It's going to feature a 1-piece sealed unit. These are shockproof and waterproof. It's going to activate automatically with your trailer's taillights, but they do not replace your trailer's taillights. Keep that in mind. LEDs are going to be longer lasting and more energy efficient when compared to incandescent lights or incandescent bulbs. Everything is a really simple installation. The lights are going to wire into your trailer's taillights, and then once you have the arms installed on the brackets, this can be mounted above or below your trailer frame, but the neat thing about this bracket design is it actually allows you, once you have it loosely installed on your trailer frame, you can slide your arm in and out that way it will accommodate whatever size boat that you're carrying. Once you have these installed, you want to install them as far back on the trailer as possible. You also want to install them to where the PVC piping is as close to the side or the surface of the boat as possible. Usually, you want to make sure that's at least within 1" of the surface of the boat. CE Smith is going to make this product fully in the USA. All of the hardware that you need for a complete installation is included as well as installation instructions. With this kit, you're going to get 2 boat guide ons. It's designed for trailer frames up to 3" wide x 4.25" tall. Now, an extra-long U-bolt kit is required for mounting on frames up to 3" wide x 5.25" tall. That's available and sold separately with part number CE11416. Again with the PVC piping the length that it is and the arms, once installed it's going to give you a 60" height, but it may be trimmed to a minimum of 40" if needed. You also want to check with your state department of transportation for restrictions regarding maximum trailer width, but the last thing I want to show you is what the light looks like when it's hooked up to our power source. I'm simply just going to go ahead and connect it, and then, we'll also be able to turn off our overhead light so you can get a better look at how the lights actually look. You can see there, it's going to glow amber on one side and red on the other. It's a nice LED system. It provides consistent bright light and all the diodes are functioning perfectly. It's got a nice clear lens on it. Again, that entire end cap unit is going to be waterproof and molded as well as shock resistant. That's going to do it for today's look at part number CE27760. This is the CE Smith Post-Style Guide Ons with the LED lights. .

Shipped quicker than expected. Super easy install and they look great. I also did run the wires through the metal bracket instead of the zip strip method, looks so much cleaner. 419634

Product is of good quality. IMO, running the wires outside the galvanized arms results in unprofessional look. It's a bit tricky, but running the wires inside the arms and drilling a small exit hole in the short section is much neater. The wires on my Karavan trailer were easily accessible under the at the cross bar (covered by a rubber cap); that's where I tapped into the brown wire. To protect the trailer finish from the U-bolts, I wrapped a piece of indoor-outdoor carpet around the frame and bolted the guides over the carpet. I'll try to get a photo of my install. 138642

Still great one yr later. I used rubber gromets where wires come through brackets

I have not put the product on yet. My brother has and they worked great on the Niagara River with the very strong current. The river was high and without the guides it would have been a struggle to have loaded our 21 foot boat. We just got the bow in the guides and then we could use the motor to help push the boat onto the trailer and keep the stern pushed up river. That is why I bought a pair for my 25 foot hardtop. 509223

I had purchased the Fulton boat guides earlier from another firm but had to return them because the U-bolts wouldn't work on my boat trailer (Not enough clearance between the u-bolt end and the bottom of my boat and I couldn't find replacements. I have a 16' Smokercraft Osprey with a bunk type EZ-Load Trailer. I opted to buy the CE Smith 60" guide posts with lights from etrailer.com. It turned out to be a very good decision. Easy install, they fit and work great and they arrived sooner than promised. Thanks etrailer.com! 183506

Service: I ordered on a Sunday night. Received three emails that very evening. One from Customer Service, then George and finally one from Joseph confirming shipment. On Thursday the day of delivery, I received two emails informing me the item was due to be delivered that day and that it had been delivered to my door. Last, I received an email from Debie on Friday confirming receipt. WOW talk about customer service. You people are first class! I’ve been in customer service for the past 20 years and it doesn’t get much better than that. Product: Sturdy well-built product that provides a great look to my new 21ft Sea Hunt and Venture trailer. Can't wait to test it out when the weather warms up. Tip: Instead of running the light wires between the tubing and PVC guides you can start at the short end of the galvanized tubing with a finish nail and thin string. Drop the nail through until it comes out the top (long part) of the galvanized tube. Attach the string to the ground eyelet and second wire with masking tape and pull the wiring through while sliding the PVC guides over the tube as you pull. Gave it a great finished look (will only work if you position the U-bolts far back on the trailer as close as possible to the trailer lights). Extremely pleased with the service and product - I will be back for my other trailer needs! Thanks etrailer.com 121327

Well built and easy to install...I had to adjust the angle of the vertical bar to conform to the boat. This was accomplished by use of a steel shim at the trailer frame bracket....no problem. 156483

Order the lighted guides in the 60" model. Shipping was quick and order was correct. It comes with all the mounting hardware and very simple to follow instructions. Took my boat to the lake and the boat Ramp I had to use had a 10 mph cross wind. These guides were awesome aiding in keeping the boat aligned with the trailer while reloading. Money well spent. 375584

PVC POLES CAME DIRTY, HAD BLACK GREASE SPOTS ON THEM, WILL NEED TO FIND A CLEANER TO WIPE THEM CLEAN. WOULD SEND PICTURES BUT I DON'T HAVE A CAMERA. HAD TO PURCHASE THE LONGER HORSESHOE BOLT PACKAGE, SELLER SHOULD COME UP WITH A PLAN TO REPLACE THE SMALL SET AND MAYBE CHARGE THE CUSTOMER THE PRICE DIFFERENCE FOR THE LONG SET. WILL LET YOU KNOW HOW THE INSTALL WENT WHEN COMPLETED. 472139

I am sure this is a fly by night company when the first email I received was telling me that it could be up to seven days before they knew a shipping date. Sure enough they were right. Ten days after ordering I received the order and with the wrong guide on and no paper work at all. If this is the only company you can order from then order, but other wise go some where else. 399236

Easy to install. My trailer does not have anywhere at the end to mount them so they are mounted in front of the axle. It does help with being able to see the trailer for backing. I have a rather tall F 350 with a toolbox and could not see the trailer out the back window at all. 571624

Great product. Not only does the guides make driving your boat onto the trailer much easier, they also keep your boat on the trailer if a wake hits. Just last week a wake hit while loading, my boat stayed on trailer while boat on the other side lifted off trailer and caused damage to keel's jell coat. Plus, the added light when trailing helps with night visibility. Wouldn't own a trailer without them. Also easy to install. 430522

Installed this product one year ago and it remains a superb addition and application to my boat and trailer. It has held-up extremely well as it is used repeatedly. It makes loading the boat in high wind and strong water current conditions a snap. The instructions and video were very helpful while simplifying the installation process. I own three fishing boats and etrailer.com remains my "go to" company for all my boating trailer needs. I can't say enough how much I appreciate their helpful staff members in assisting my needs. 339589

Product mounted easily. I choose to put a piece of heavy rubber tread between the mounting plate and my frame in order to the reduce rubbing and rusting risk. That being said, they greatly assist launching and recovery of my 18 foot Alumacraft. I can finally see the end of the trailer below the waterline and they give me something to grab on to in order to center the trailer on the bunks before pulling out. Nice product ! 288557

Thank you for reaching back out to me as a customer and valuing my opinion. I would have to say that the product was exactly what I expected and it installed easily and has maintained its appearance very well over the past year. It still functions exactly as its supposed to and has been of great benefit to me while trailering my boat.

I bought these Guid-ons because when my boat was off the trailer the trailer was hard to see behind my pickup when backing. These were the cure for that and made lining the boat with the trailer when loading at the ramp easier when the rear of the trailer was submerged. My trailer has some flat plate welded to the frame from the fender to the rear of the trailer for a step that complicated installing the Guid-ons at rear of the trailer. I ended up drilling two holes on each side of the trailer in this flat plate for the Guide-ons "U" mounting bolts to go through. After drilling the two holes in the plate the provided hardware and instructions worked fine. It took me about an hour to install them and hook up the new marker lights. 265783

Do you have a question about this Boat Trailer Part?


  • Installing CE Smith Lighted Guide Posts
  • I'd agree with you. What you describe is exactly how I would install it. You'll want to use a grommet on the hole you drill in the galvanized arm to protect the wires from rubbing against the metal. You will also probably have a heckuva time getting paint to stick to anything that's been galvanized, you might find that you'll have to sand off the galvanized coating first, then paint.

  • Dimensions of Steel Tubing in CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons Kit # CE27640
  • I took a walk to our warehouse so that I could measure the dimensions of the L-shaped square steel tubes in the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons Kit # CE27640. These square tubes are separate from the 60-inch PVC pipes that are included in the kit. From the middle of the bend to the end of the horizontal tube the measure is 21-inches. We also offer a similar kit with 40-inch PVC pipes, part # CE27620, and a 60-inch kit # CE27760 that includes LED lights that mount on top of the pipes. A...

  • Recommended Guide Ons for 19 Foot Sea Ray Open Bow Boat and Trailer
  • For a boat that size I would go with the 60 inch guide-ons, part # CE27760. These guide-ons should work well with your 19 Foot Sea Ray Open Bow Boat and Trailer. The uprights of this product angle out slightly which may match up with the angle of your hull, but that is not necessary for these to work properly. These will fit trailer frames up to 3" wide x 4-1/4" tall. You can see a product description video for the Guide-Ons by clicking the provided link.

The similar white # CE27640 with the 60 inch height will give you close to that angle but not quite as precise angling out a little more. We also have a lighted option in the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons with LED Lights for Boat Trailers - 60" Tall - 1 Pair # CE27760 if you have a desire for a more clear visual guide at dusk or dawn.

The caps are PVC. This kit is designed to work with models CE27620, 27625, CE27640, 27645, CE27670, CE27740, and CE27760.

  • Boat Guide-On Recommendations for a 2017 Robalo Walk Around
  • Given the size of your 2017 Robalo Walk Around boat I recommend going with tall guide-ons such as the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers - 75" Tall - I-Beam Clamps - 1 Pair Item # CE27635 if the trailer has an I-beam frame. If the trailer does not have an I-beam frame then a 60 inch set with lights on top, # CE27760, is a great option as well. Based on the boat I would not go under 60 inches. I have linked a video of the lighted guides for you.

  • Is There a Padded Cover Available for CE Smith 60 inch Post Guide Ons
  • The tallest padded cover we offer for CE Smith guide ons is 48 inches like the part # CE27901. The good news is that they may be shorter than the part # CE27760 but you could still use them. You'd just have to position the pads where they'd be needed on the posts.

  • The CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons with LED Lights for Boat Trailers, # CE27760, are designed to be mounted to your boat trailer's side frame rails, not the cross member. The included mounting hardware accommodates trailer frames up to 3 inches wide and 4-1/4 inches tall. I spoke with my contact at CE Smith and for smaller trailer frames you will just want to use a treated piece of lumber or another piece of metal to take up the additional space in the u-bolts.

  • Compatibility of CE Smith Guide-On Covers on a 40 Inch Post
  • I can help you figure out which Guide-On Covers are right for you. Both camouflage covers fit on 2 inch Schedule 40 PVC post-style guide-ons, with or without LED lights, with a maximum outer diameter of post: 2-3/8 inches. It would just depend on how much of your post you would like to cover. I recommend the 36 inch Camo Guide-On Covers # CE27902 for your 40 inch CE Smith Posts # CE27740 instead, because these are designed to be open-ended to allow the LED lights to show. The...

  • How to Help with Loading Boat on Trailer at Night

These guide-ons will provide visual targets to center the boat during loading. They are 60" tall but can be trimmed and will fit pretty much any boat trailer with frame rails up to 3" wide x 4-1/4" tall. If your frame rail exceeds this measurement then you can use part # CE11416...

  • Will CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons With LED Lights For Boat Trailers Designed For Saltwater Use
  • I called my contact at CE Smith and asked them about the Post-Style Guide-Ons with LED Lights for Boat Trailers, part # CE27760. They told me the lights are submersible and no worries there. The posts are PVC so that is not a problem either. The L-bracket that the PVC uprights are attached to are galvanized and over time they will be affected by salt water. Rinsing them off will help delay the effects of salt water. You can also paint them before installing that would help a lot.

  • Since your boat trailer has a frame that is too large for the included hardware of the CE Smith Guide Ons part # CE27760 to fit your only option would be to have the brackets welded to the trailer frame.
