Review of the CE SMIth Post Style Boat Trailer Guide Ons


Today we're going to be taking a look at and installing the 40 inch CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers, part number CE27620. Guide posts make it easy to load your boat onto your trailer and back your trailer down the ramp. They provide a visual target to center the boat between during loading. They adjust out as far as 13 inches to accommodate a wide variety of boat sizes. The up-rights are made out of a 16 gauge pre-galvanized steel that can rust and corrode so it's recommended that you paint or prime them. With the PVC pipe on, the up-rights measure 40 inches. Now that we've gone over some features, I'll go ahead and show you how to get it installed.

We're here at the rear of our boat trailer and we need to loosely install our brackets. Now when putting the brackets on, you want to try to get as close to a cross member as possible, that's going to be this right here, and that's going to give us more rigidity. We've got a narrow frame here so our brackets or our U-bolts are going to install in an X fashion like this. Now if it was wide, we would just install them a normal way like this. What we're going to to do is take the lower portion of our bracket, that's this right here, and we're going to put it underneath our frame here and it's going to go, we're going to take our flat one first and go like this. So we'll do that first.

Then we'll grab our included hardware. We'll put a washer on first along with our lock-nut. Get one started there and then we'll get one started on the back. All right, now we just let them hang there a little bit. Then we'll take our other one, like I said before, and just go right over top.

Now keep in mind, everything we do here we're just going to repeat the same step on the other side. Now we can go ahead and put on our up-rights and our PVC portion. We'll take the short, which is this right here, and we're going to slide it right here. We still got it loosely installed. Now we can grab our PVC and we need to make sure that the notched portion, which is this right here, is pointing downward because it's going to fit on our up-right over this notch here. We'll slide it on and match that up.

All right. Then we can finish tightening down our up-rights. Now the last thing to do is to go ahead and put on our cap. That's going to complete our look and install of the 40 inch CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers, part number CE27620.
