Gorilla Lift - Trailer Tailgate Lift Assist
The Gorilla-Lift is a two-sided trailer tailgate lift assist. A unit attaches to each side of your trailer. It is designed to be adjustable for different sizes and weights of tailgates.
Installation is between 30 and 60 minutes. Installation information can be found in the Resources section. You can either attach it with the supplied hardware, or spot-weld the Gorilla-Lift in place.
The Gorilla-Lift works best on trailers with side rails between 10 inches and 24 inches in height and tailgates 4 to 6 feet in height. It attaches to both sides of the tailgate. This prevents the tailgate from warping off the hinges and from deteriorating prematurely from uneven stresses. It also helps to prevent the full weight of the tailgate from smashing down in the event one side were ever to fail.
The lifting system is fully enclosed inside a housing. This is a key aspect in operator safety when operating the trailer tailgate.
