If you load heavy objects in and out of your pickup truck bed with the tailgate folded down, you’ve probably noticed that sliding things over the bed is easy, but getting objects over the cavities and indentations on the inside of your tailgate panel itself is a huge struggle. The Tailgate Protector by Access® offers you the solution you’ve been waiting for. A smooth and flat stainless steel panel mounts to the inside of your tailgate to completely revise the landscape of your truck’s loading area. 18 gauge construction of the highest grade stainless steel ensures the Tailgate Protector will continue to look good and remain free from corrosion as long as you own your vehicle. Since the Tailgate Protector offers a smooth, even surface that you won’t find anywhere else on your truck, it provides a great usable working surface in a spot that’s easiest to access.
The Tailgate Protector installs easily after drilling eight 3/8ths-inch holes in your tailgate panel. Stainless steel self-drilling screws are included for locking the stainless steel protector plate in place. Once installed, you’ll save yourself a world of back strain by not having to pull upwards on things to slide them into the bed area. You’ll also safeguard your truck’s tailgate from scrapes, dents, and rust which can devalue your vehicle greatly. And if you need to retrieve things from your bed when a tonneau cover is in place, you can slide them all the way out easily without having to roll up or lift the cover. Before mounting the Tailgate Protector, Access® recommends inspecting your truck’s tailgate area for hidden components such as electrical wiring so they can be relocated if necessary to avoid damage while drilling. Access® is so confident of their product’s strength and durability that they back it with a lifetime warranty.143.27Brand: Access Part Number: 27040169 UPC: 834532005383 This part is compatible with 7 vehicle(s)
