Mini Gate For Farm Pickups
A new 81/2-in. tall "mini" gate for pickups is short enough that you can load your pickup without opening the tailgate, says Midwest Contracting & Mfg., Wakeeney, Kan.
The gate offers an unobstructed view of trailers while towing or backing up and air flow isn't blocked as with a regular pickup tailgate, resulting in 3 to 5% better fuel economy, according to the manufacturer.
The "Handy Gate" is equipped with built-in pins for mounting. You drill two holes in the passenger side of the bed, just ahead of the tailgate, and one hole on the driver's side. Spring-loaded pins make it easy to mount or dismount the gate as needed.
The unit is constructed of 1 1/4-in. steel tubing and 5/16-in. hot roll round rod, and has a spring loaded "quick release latch". It weighs 33 lbs.
Sells for $89.95 plus shipping.
