One of our favorite products in our store is the Gorilla Lift. It is a tailgate lift assist for your utility trailer and it has been on the market for 5 years improving the lives of trailer owners. Its a fully enclosed lifting system that will take off 100% of the weight of most tailgates. Here is Gorilla-Lift’s (cheesy, yet informative) video of their product:
4 Reasons to Install a Gorilla-Lift
1. Adjustable for varying sized tailgates: It’s designed to not let heavy tailgates fall to the ground and to keep lighter tailgates from popping up off the ground. When it is installed properly, it’s meant to give the tailgate a floating effect when going up and down. It works on tailgates 4-6 feet tall.
2. Attaches to both sides of the tailgate: This is helpful for a few reasons. It will keep the pressure even on both sides to prevent the hinges from deteriorating in an untimely manner. It will also stop the tailgate from warping. And it acts as a secondary support; in the rare event that one side would fail, it will keep the tailgate from smashing to the ground. Overall, the thorough system should allow your trailer’s tailgate a longer life.
3. Prevents injury: Most utility trailers have pretty heavy tailgates. My guess is that there have been quite a few broken toes and worker’s compensation claims thanks to tailgates being dropped. This can also be beneficial if you have little hands that like to help you often. It’s one less “accident waiting to happen.”
4. Easy install: The Gorilla Lift comes with the hardware to attatch it, however you can also choose to spot-weld it to your utility trailer. But at Grandville Trailer, we can make it even easier for you. Come to our store where we have these in stock and we will be happy to install it for you. The lift does work best on utility trailers with side rails 10-24 inches high.
