New from Rider Tailgate Accessories are the company’s Tailgate Cable Extension Links.
The links are designed to allow a person to lower his tailgate past 90 degrees, thereby decreasing the steepness of loading ramps and making the loading of ATVs, UTVs, motorcycles and other powersports equipment easier. The device simply attaches to the support cables on a truck’s tailgate and then to the bedside.
Depending on the make of the vehicle, the product allows the tailgate to drop from 3 inches to 5.25 inches. On most model trucks, the links allow a tailgate to be lowered significantly without any modifications. For others, the company has a relocation kit for moving the bumper to a lower position. And, the tailgate can be closed with the links in place.
