Pleasantly Smooth Opening
Overcome the rapid drop-slamming when opening your pick-up’s tailgate with Truckman’s two-way tailgate damper kit. The kit helps users open the tailgate with ease – especially useful with one-hand operation when loading and unloading cargo into and out of the truck’s load bed area.
The two-way damper kit also protects the tailgate’s internal components, as well as hinges and cables, from long term shock damage thanks to the reduction in speed of the opening action. The damper kit reduces the effective weight of the tailgate by over 50% – a noticeable and reassuring difference that gives peace of mind.
Much like a vehicle’s shock absorbers designed to control spring and suspension movement, the two-way damper kit acts as a shock absorber for the truck’s tailgate – ensuring that the tailgate is operated at a controlled speed, preventing shock and accidental injury to the user as well as family members, pets or children.
Assisted Tailgate Closing
Factory tested for durability, the two-way damper kit provides reliably smooth assistance when lift-closing the tailgate. The reduced effective weight of the tailgate helps prevent injury by lowering the risk of getting hands or fingers caught between the tailgate and the truck body, as well as back, wrist or shoulder strain.
The kit is a value-adding upgrade, designed to work in conjunction with your vehicle’s existing components including support cables. The two-way tailgate damper kit includes one support cable, two internal pistons and a single damper – and a comprehensive installation guide. The damper can be fitted in around 45 minutes with minimal drilling required.
