Can 40" Tall Guide-Ons be Bolted to Trailer Frame for Extra Height


Hello I have a trailer with 24 inch horizontal guides which are about 12 inch to 15 inch high. But I would like to add some height to the trailer on each side for easier loading in the current. Can I add these in conjunction with my factory 24 inch long horizontal guides? I am assuming your guides on could be bolted the frame for extra height? I am trying to design a higher slot or funnel if you will. As the factory 15 inch height of the guides as when in the water are not high enough and the boat goes over the top of those guides and the boat sits at a 45 angle. Looking to improve a better hole shot when loading in the current. I could send an image if you would like to further explain. Thanks

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.

Attached are some review videos that you can check out, as well as our selection of guide-ons that you can filter through.
