Turn Your Pickup Tailgate Into A Powered “Lift Gate”
You can save on your back with this new electronic tailgate lift that uses your existing tailgate. It’s designed to lift heavy tools and equipment while still allowing you full use of the tailgate.
  The Handy Gate Electric Tailgate Lift operates off your pickup’s standard 7-way trailer plug and is designed to easily raise loads from the ground to the pickup bed.
  The unit comes with a 10-in. deep floor extension and 2 tall lift assemblies that take the place of your tailgate’s hinge pivots, locking in place around the tailgate pins. The floor then bolts in place between the assemblies, and the tailgate is reinstalled. Once the load has been raised to bed level you can close the tailgate.
  Each lift assembly is operated by a PCB motor, with an on-off switch located at the top on one of the assemblies. Each assembly contains a screw shaft with ball bearings that roll along the threads of the shaft. The dual motors ensure that the tailgate stays level.
  According to the company, the tailgate lift can easily lift loads up to 1,000 lbs., which makes it ideal for moving generators, motorcycles, golf carts, riding mowers, appliances, etc. Also, with the bed floor extension you have an additional 10 in. of storage space.
  The unit doesn’t touch the pickup bumper or require any modifications to the pickup. It assembles in only a few min. using a socket wrench and screwdriver.
  Fits all 2009 and newer Ford, GM, Chevy and Dodge pickups.
  Sells for $2,299 plus S&H.
