An unwieldy tail gate is nobody’s friend!

Juggling the groceries with the kids running around also presents risk and the need to open/ close a 4WD tail gate safely and easily is a huge plus. The Aeroklas Tailgate Assist addresses the issues by damping the majority of the tailgate weight through its uniquely designed torsion bar and gas strut system.

Comprising of two major components, the torsion bar mechanism has been designed to absorb the weight of the tailgate when closing, while the gas strut dampens the opening function. Both of these components will significantly reduce the ‘felt’ weight of open and closing your vehicle’s tailgate by up to 70%. Each Tailgate Assist product is made to be vehicle specific with no drilling required.
