Truckman, the UK’s largest manufacturer of 4×4 accessories and hardtops, has come up with a new innovation, which takes the hard work out of opening and closing the tailgate of a pick-up truck.
Ideal for dog owners as well as families and commercial users, the Tailgate Pro-Lift reduces the weight of a vehicle’s tailgate by 95 percent.
Using gas struts and a specially-designed spring system for easy operation, the Pro-Lift enables the tailgate to be opened and closed with one hand, letting you lift your dog into the boot or make sure he gets in more safely.
Quick and simple to install, Pro-Lift is available for and can be fitted to all UK pick-up truck models from Fiat, Ford, Isuzu, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Toyota and Volkswagen.
Pro-Lift is also available through Isuzu dealerships, having recently secured Approved Accessory status from the pick-up truck manufacturer.
Mike Wheeler, Executive Chairman of Truckman, said: “This is a great innovation that can make a huge difference to pick-up truck owners, particularly dog owners and families who will benefit from the controlled, gentle opening of the tailgate.
“As well as significantly reducing the effort required to open and close the tailgate, through the use of gas struts and springs, Pro-Lift’s operation offers additional safety benefits protecting the operator from the weight of the tailgate.”
The Tailgate Pro-Lift retails at £198 (including VAT), and is available to order by calling Truckman on 01384 485405 or emailing them on [email protected].
