TrailSeal Tailgate Gasket- A Tight Tailgate Seal - 834532001583

Average Customer Rating:  4.4 out of 5 stars   (153 Customer Reviews)


I ordered the TrailSeal Tailgate Gasket for my 2022 Ford F-150 Platinum which has a power tailgate. The install took about 15 minutes and appears that it will do a good job of sealing out dust and snow. The kit had good instructions and contained more than enough material. After installation the tailgate closed and locked with a push of the button. When installing make sure you have everything lined up the way you want as the adhesive will not let you reposition the gasket.



Still staying in place, does a good job of keeping dust and snow out


I used this to seal around my Ridgeline dual action tailgate. I already had installed a backflip hard folding cover. The seal works great. I now get a very small amount of water in the bed in a hard rain



Great. The only water comes via the folding cover. The seal around the tailgate seals against water and importantly, dust really well.

@Jay Glad to hear your tailgate seal is working well for you!


I made the right choice. Took my time, watched a video,cleaned surfaces. All gaps on tailgate sealed.



The seal is still in great shape. Virtually no dust entry. Had to apply added adhesion on a 2 in long spot at the end of a bottom run. No biggy. The rubber is good and has the same flex for sealing. Glad I did not rush the installation because it pays off. Used some excess seal to use on my camper top back window. I would definitely use this rubber seal again if needed or on another pickup.


I've had this installed for about a year (this is the second winter). It was obviously very easy to install and the adhesive is holding up well.
It has performed well in direct heat from the sun and in cold conditions with ice freezing all around the tailgate.
The seal has easily remained in place on the flat surfaces. It has stayed in place surprisingly well on uneven surfaces and areas where I was not able to get a perfect install. It's best to not rush the install. Plan where the seal needs to go and clean the surface thoroughly.
After one year, it's safe to say that this tailgate seal is easily worth the money.


I give an average simply because the fit of the tailgate on my Ranger is not good. Gaps are just to big. There are areas that the gasket just is not thick/deep enough to make a perfect seal. It did make a positive difference, still lets some water in.


Blocks about 80% of the dust. It is difficult to get a complete seal because of curves & gaps in the tailgate area (Toyota Tacoma 2018)



The seal is stable after a year with no problems. Keeps about 90 of the dust out. Tacoma 2018 4x4 long bed with diamondback cover.


This product is working as advertised. I have driven through a lot of snow this winter. I have not had any snow in my truck bed. It was easy to put in and it looks great as well.


The seal works in most areas of the tailgate. However, it does not seal near the top of the tailgate. My truck is a 2012 Chevy and has a curved area near the top where the tailgate latches. So, there still is a gap where the seal does not mesh up with the closed tailgate. Wish the material were made model specific. I am going to monitor how much dust will enter the box.

Ben C.


Same for my 2011 F150, doesnt seal the top on either side of the tailgate.


Nice product quality but it didn't seal the dust as I hoped.



Same answer. Doesnt seal at tailgate bottom.


Product was delivered in a timely manner. Cleaned all contact spots with alcohol before installation. This was on a 2018 Ford F150. Installation took about 20 minutes. Seemed to stick very well. As with most all pickup beds, to get a tight fit I had to double up the product near the top corners of the tailgate. Will have to see how that sticks moving forward. Not sure why no one makes a tailgate seal that is model specific. I know I would personally pay more for such a product. That being said, this is the best product I could find and I am very pleased with it.

Gregory Z.


Still staying on. I would be willing to pay a bit more though for a seal that was custom made to fit my truck. The bottom and about 2/3s of the way up the sides fits very well. The remaining one third still had large gaps. Doubled and tripled the tape up and it is much better. Custom fit would be really nice. From reading reviews this is a issue with many models of trucks.


Great product. Easy to apply and keeps the snow and dust out. Your results depend on you installing it in the correct place. Don't expect the instructions to tell you precisely where, as truck tailgate designs vary. Do it right, and it works.

Working as designed after 2 years installed


It got a little pushed out of alignment when I closed the tailgate, but still seems to be doing well


This is the fourth truck that I have installed the tailgate sealer on. I have tried different products, but etrailer’s product seems to do the best job. The adhesive used on their product is superior ... it doesn’t slip out of place after extended opening and closing. Their product seems to be of a heavier rubber material and so far much more durable. While I haven’t abused it over an extended period of time, to date, I’m extremely satisfied with etrailer’s tailgate sealing product.


Hello George,

Thank you for
taking the time to contact me. The TailSeal is still firmly attached. I followed the installation instructions to the letter and it has not failed. My only disappointment is it does not keep all dust from entering the bed.

I rarely go on gravel but it is occasionally necessary in Iowa. Dust comes into the bed about a foot from the tail gate. I did not expect the product to correct Ram's design flaw but hoped for an improvement. It improved but didn't eliminate the flaw. Still, given the price, I would purchase again. I'll just not set an uncovered cake within a foot or two of the gate. I don't like crunchy cake. Also, I don't use my truck for business. I'm a gentleman pickup owner, whatever that is.

Again, I do truly appreciate customer service and etrailer is a fine example of it.


A year now post installation of the Tailgate Gasket and the gate seal has done the job I had hoped. Adhesive has withstood a cold winter and hot summer without de laminating or pulling lose it closed what was in some places a half inch gap. My shell enclosed truck bed stays dry in the most extreme rain conditions and dust/debris accumulation reduced to nearly nothing. An inexpensive fix to a annoying problem. Highly recommended.


Purchased the tailgate seal for my 2014 Ford F-150. The seal needs to be thicker, or have an option to purchase a thicker seal, as I still get a lot of dust in the bed and the one I received doesn’t near seal the gap. I have a lid on my truck to protect from weather, but dust from backroads is still an issue.


I bought my Flip Top truck bed cover from you and have been absolutely satisfied with the product. It was easy to install and is easy to use. I've had numerous people comment about how good it looks and how easy it is to use. Thanks for your service and attention to quality. In the future, if I need another product for my truck, you will be the first stop for finding that a product.


This is the widest one I could find. I was able to work with my dealership's auto body group to seal my 2019 Ford Ranger tailgate gap.

Has held up with no problems. Dont know why Ford didnt Ford the tailgate properly OEM?


We bought this product for our other truck which had a tonneau cover on it. Once we installed the TrailSeal tailgate gasket, we had no more dust or dirt in the bed of the truck. It makes it really nice when you travel, to not get items in the back dirty. We had told others about this product - it's just amazing!


Quality product. I have opened the tailgate hundreds of times in the last year and the seal looks new. Coupled with the Lomax tonneau cover, the truck bed stays clean and dry.


This tailgate seal kit works very well with keeping the dust out. Take a little care installing it and you will be happy!

Tip, cut a short piece and use it to test for a proper seal before permanent installation.


Installed parts a year ago and all is still well good quality parts here


Overall the product works and is nice. But it doesn't seal the upper sides of my tailgate at all-a 2006 Toyota Tundra. The top 3-4 inches of bed curve, so there is nowhere to put the seal. I wish they made a part to compensate for this-as I doubt my truck is the only one made like this.


The package arrived open box. Have not installed but shipping was not good being so damaged. Thankfully this product not damaged but something more sensitive would have been.

Sorry about the box damage. I am glad that your item was not harmed.


It never did seal well. After driving on dirt and dusty roads I still get a lot of dust inside the bed. I have a 2011 Silverado with a Back Flip bed cover.
Thanks for your follow-up.

  • Recommended Tailgate Gasket For A 2022 Ram 1500
    Tailgate seals are all cut to fit so you can really pick whatever you want, but out of the available options we carry the TrailSeal Tailgate Gasket # 834532001583 you were looking at has the best reviews. Each one of these seals just uses some double-sided 3M tape so prepping the truck bed for installation is going to be a must if you want it to last. You'll want to clean the areas you plan on installing it on with some rubbing alcohol so that there's no dust or debris that could prevent...

  • Can Tailgate Seal be Installed in Cold Weather
    While you can install the TrailSeal Tailgate Gasket- A Tight Tailgate Seal # 834532001583 in colder weather the ideal temperature range to apply 3M tape is in the neighborhood of 60 or 70 degrees. Installing it in colder weather may lead to a weaker bond so if possible I recommend holding off until the temperature rises to install the seal.

  • What Tailgate Seal do You Recommend for My 2022 Honda Ridgeline?
    I have an answer for you. Without knowing the exact dimensions of the gaps on the vertical and horizontal portion of your 2022 Honda Ridgeline's tailgate, I cannot confirm for sure what tailgate seal will allow full functionality. That is because tailgate seals are designed as universal fitments. However, the best route is to measure the width/height of your gaps on your vertical and horizontal openings that give you the most protection without interfering with the tailgate mechanisms...

  • Should I Install a Tailgate Seal with my Lomax Tri-Fold Cover on a 2021 Ford F-250
    I recommend using the TrailSeal Tailgate Gasket # 834532001583 and I do recommend using it on the bottom of the tailgate as well as the sides. Even though it might hold water in, it's going to prevent a lot more water from entering through that gap, which will act a bit like a vacuum sucking up water off the bumper and other spots at the rear of your 2021 F-250. I spoke with my tech and installation contact over at Agri-cover, who make the Lomax line of covers and they strongly recommend...

  • What Do You Recommend to Close the Gap between the Tailgate and the Truck Bed of my 2021 Ford Ranger
    If you are looking for protection from rocks between your bed liner and where the tailgate begins, there needs to be a balance between functionality and protection. The reason why something like a bed cover like the Access Custom Truck Bed Mat - Snap-In Bed Floor Cover # A67SJ is because the cover does not extend over to the tailgate; it simply ends at the rear of your bed without covering the gap. Also, any bed floor cover that covers the gap will impact the functionality of the rear tailgate...
