Gorilla-Lift 2-Sided Tailgate Lift Assist, Model# 40101042G
Makes life easy
I had to change the mounting bolts to shorter ones, but other than that it was easy to install, and when it used to take two people to lift the gate on my transport trailer, I can now do one handed. Well worth the money and effort to install.

Simple but effective design. They work exactly as described. Makes closing and opening the tailgate by one person possible. The only dislike is when the tailgate is down you have to watch to not trip over the cable. These do come as a pair in the box so it was a good value.

My Chiropractor thanks you!
5 Stars for the product, it was well worth the price. Now anybody can raise/lower the gate on my trailer. A flip of the foot and it is up! Same going down, just needs a little nudge. The instructions on the other hand could be written a lot better and maybe a few more pictures at key places would be helpful. I think someone who is not real handy would struggle with installation...but shouldn't be hesitant about getting the lift, it is great. Just ask the guy you were going to borrow the tools from anyway to give you a hand! :)

The lift aid works well. Getting the lift location on the tail-gate could have been explained better. Be prepared for lots of drilling.
Good luck, Ned

Why didn't I think of this. It works great. I have a Beefed up tailgate that weighs a lot and this lift has no trouble lifting it. 2 fingers really is all you need.

The Gorilla Lift was relatively easy to install. I did have a little issue with one of the upright supports on my trailer. One of the bolts in the gorilla lift frame was supposed to be installed directly over one of the vertical steel uprights. I had to change the hole location in the Gorilla Lift frame to accommodate this. That was the only issue and it was pretty easy to fix. The tailgate on my trailer is 50" high but must be fairly light in comparison to some tailgates since I had to use just one of the springs on each side of the lift. With both springs engaged on both sides, the tailgate would not go down and stay down. Once I released one of the springs on each side, it works well. I don't even have to bend over to pick it up. I just put my toe under the gate and lift it up. VERY EASY. I really like this lift. Works great and looks good on the trailer as well.

Easy to install. Instruction were start forward, simple and easy to follow. Spring tension makes raising tail gate almost effortless.

I have a 6' X 10' steel trailer with a lift gate. The gate is very heavy, and it seems the older I get, the heavier it gets... So, when I saw this " Gorilla Lift " in a Northern Tool sale paper, I had to have it. And I am SO glad I got it. I can now drop and lift the gate with one finger. NO LIE !! You just set the gate in motion buy giving it a little push or lift, and the Gorilla Lift does the rest for you. It was very easy to install. Just line it up on your trailer side rails, mark and drill 10 holes, then bolt it on. Your ready to go. I love it. Got to be one of the best things I have bought. I definitely recommend this to anyone, young or old. If you have a trailer with a lift gate, you need a Gorilla Lift. It's well worth the price.
