Ever had your hands full when you were lowering your tailgate? Does your wife complain about lowering the tailgate because it’s so heavy? Or maybe someone who’s a little older keeps dropping the tailgate because they can’t control the weight. The Stabilus EZ Down looks like a very neat solution.
The EZ Down installs in about 4 or 5 minutes and no special tools are needed. It’s essentially a gas shock absorber that connects on the side of the tailgate and you can simply open the tailgate and let go because the EZ Down does the rest, gently lowering it until it’s fully down. Very simple, very neat.
They have details on their website and a video that shows the short and simple installation process.
