The gate on my trailer is 6' wide by 5' tall. Making it larger and heavier than most trailer gates. I honestly had my doubts that this product would be strong enough. Boy was I wrong!!!!! It functions beautifully and makes my gate light as a feather . It opens and closes with literally no effort at all. Also, installation was a breeze...Few tools are needed, an all you need is the ability to read the instructions. It was so easy that I didn't need the instructions. Just looking at the parts and it was abundantly clear how to install it. Thanks RACKEM for making such a wonderful product ! ITS MADE MY JOB AS A MOWING CONTRACTOR A LOT LESS STRENUES ON ME...

Compact, well made and effective trailer gate assist. The other available trailer gate assist was just too long for my application, a 16' aluminum double axle trailer with removable fenders. Although I had to add blocking to achieve the required height since my side rails were lower than called for, and a different eye bolt to attach the chain to (instead of the angle plate that comes with it), the results are worth the trouble. In addition, I added a turnbuckle to eliminate the slack in the chain connection to the eye bolt via the quick link, facilitate removal if needed and to provide some additional or finer preload adjustment. As others have commented, the paper labels come off too easily, so you have to remember the product name and source when others ask about it.

This thing is awesome! Made my 200 pound gate more than easy to lift. Only takes 2 bolts to attach to the rail. Takes less than 10 min to install with proper tools. Watched a online video of the gorilla lift and the spring was very noisy. This one is very quiet. Highly recommend this gate lift. Also only need to install on one side of trailer unlike the gorilla lift.

I am a trailer dealer and have installed many of these. Don't think twice, buy it !!! They work great, only 4 holes to drill, the chain drive with the sprockets beat the cable and nylon rollers of the competition. Not to mention the 10 holes needed to be drilled on the competition's lift assist. If you are mounting on a trailer with angle iron rails everything you need is in the box. If you are mounting on one with square tube rails you will have to buy 2 longer bolts and if on one with pipe rails you will need to buy 2 muffler clamps and 2 longer bolts. IT IS WORTH THE MONEY, BUY IT !!!

It works well, but installation was a little more difficult than I expected. Since my trailer sides are higher than 12 inches I had to make special brackets to mount at 12 inches. I can raise and lower the gate with two fingers. This is a big improvement over both arms and about all I can lift. I would like to see more vides of different install options. Still I like this product and can recommends it, but a few more videos would be nice.

The Double Barrel Trailer Gate Assist was everything that I had hoped it would be. Easy & quick to install & greatly reduced the effort needed to lift the trailer tail gate. I would recommend it to anyone needing trailer tail gate assistance equipment.

This tail gate lift is amazing. Not only can my husband can handle it with his bad back, but I can put the tailgate up and down by myself. Takes me 3 fingers but to be fair with the arthritis I have in my hands that's super.
