Buyers Products Tailgate - Trailer Tailgate Assist - 3375201000 Review


Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we're gonna take a look at this Buyers Products EZ Gate Tailgate Assist for landscape and open trailers. This EZ Gate Tailgate Assist will help reduce physical strain when you're lifting or lowering your heavy trailer tailgate. Basically on the inside of this tube is a spring-loaded mechanism which will mount to the trailer side-rail, and it uses these three mounting brackets when you install it. It is designed to work on most standard open trailers with either round or square tubing. I wanted to zoom in on this end to show you, here's the eye bolt, this eye bolt that's attached to the internal spring.

If I pull this out, you'll see the spring right there. That spring's on the inside of the tube. And then this eye bolt gets attached to the trailer rail. And then on the other end, let me zoom over to the other end here, right over here, you'll see there's a cable that's attached to the spring. This cable will run all the way here, and then there's a chain with an eye bolt on that.

Basically on this end, what you'll do is run this cable through this roller bracket. There's two rollers here. The cable will go through there. That's mounted at the end of your trailer rail. Once that cable's through there, then that eye bolt that's on the chain right here, this is what'll bolt to your tailgate.

Then by using the tension of the spring here on the inside, it'll reduce lifting that tailgate by about 90% when you're either raising it or lowering it. It decreases the fatigue and the chance of any injury. It'll also leave the other, since this only installs on one side of the trailer, it'll also leave the other side of the trailer open for equipment racks and other rail-mounted trailer accessories. This EZ Gate works on most open utility trailers with a side-rail height of 12 inches to 18 inches. One kit like this one here can work on gates up to 180 pounds.

The EZ Gate, it is constructed of a nice heavy-duty carbon steel. Has a nice finish of rust-inhibiting black powder coat to protect against any wear or tear. Also what's nice, where your spring is, right in here, they do have a no-rattle spring insert that gives you a lot quieter application when it's being used. When you're up raising or lowering that tailgate, you won't hear a spring rattling on the inside of the tube 'cause it has that insert around it. It does come with all the mounting hardware you need for nice, fast, and simple installation. Nice set of installation instructions. These parts are made in the USA. Last thing I wanna do is just give you some measurements. The length on this tube itself from one end all the way to the other is 71 inches long. The diameter of the tube is right at 2 1/2 inches in diameter. But that should do it for the review on the Buyers Products EZ Gate Tailgate Assist for landscape and open trailers..
