    SINGLE UNIT $149.95 S&H Free

    TWIN PACK $199.95 S&H Free

    I would buy the twin pack, use one and sell the other for $100 on craigslist.

      or just go buy two garage door springs and 2 solid eye bolts, washers and lock nuts and make the same exact thing for $30.00.

      the guy sells what you need and the idea is nothing new, so he did not come up with the idea and for 200.00 bucks, please, i'll just go to the hardware store and solve that problem for a fraction.

      products like that for that cost just goes to show there is one born every minute, suckers that is.

                    heres what i got on my trailer. . . . they work great and are out of the way. . they mount on the rails of your trailer. . . and you can literary lift up the rear gate with 2 fingers. . . my 2 year old can lift my gate and my rear gate is 7ft wide by like 5ft tall

                    they cost about $200 bucks but well worth the money. . .

                    i think making a home made one will just look cheap on your trailer. . or if you run a winch or cable down the trailer to pull it up. . that's going to take a lot of time opening and closing your gate. . TIME IS MONEY. . BUY A KIT IT WILL PAY OFF IN THE END!!!

                      Spring Assist Gate Lift

                      I spent many hours searching for some way to solve the same problem with that heavy gate and finally went with the Elegator Spring. This is the best investment I have made since starting. I have attached a link to a couple photos with it on my trailer so you can see how simple it is to install. It is easy to install and just about any 7 or 8 year old can operate the gate now. I no longer even bend over to close it since I can hook my toe under it and flip it up. I purchased two sets and I only need one.
                      The link to the pictures are here
