The perfect solution to the struggle of lowering and raising a ute’s heavy tailgate, Tailgate Assist safely controls the opening speed and reduces the effort required to close while enabling simple, one-handed operation.
Manufactured in Australia, Tailgate Assist incorporates two types of struts co-developed with world-leading gas strut manufacturer, Stabilis.
The passenger side damping strut helps to slowly lower the tailgate which, once opened, can be let go and continue to lower unassisted in a controlled manner. On the driver’s side of the tailgate, a gas-assisted traction strut helps to close the tailgate; making lifting easy and achievable with a simple one-handed motion.
Each kit comes with vehicle-specific hardware including mounting brackets and replacement tailgate cables and guide brackets where required.
