Smooth, Slow Operation. Are you tired of your Silverado’s tailgate dropping open with a loud bang? If so, Barricade has the answer in the form of their Tailgate Assist. Barricade’s Tailgate Assist uses a damping strut to slowly and smoothly open your Silverado’s tailgate when unlatched, preventing it from just dropping open. The Tailgate Assist is ideal for those times when you only have one free hand to open your tailgate.

Simple, Bolt-on Installation. Barricade designed their Tailgate Assist to be a direct bolt-on upgrade reusing existing factory mounting points. There is no drilling or modifications required for a simple straight forward install. With just a set of basic hand tools this Barricade Tailgate Assist can be installed in less than 30 minutes.

Application. The Barricade Tailgate Assist is designed to fit all 2007-2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 models. Not compatible with the 2007 Silverado 1500 Classic models.

    If you are someone that opens your tailgate a lot, at least once a day, this product isn’t for you. The nut mechanism they have to secure the plate to the tailgate was extremely loose for me, loose before I tightened it down to the specifications they have on the install sheet. And after I tightened it down and completed the install it came loose again after trying out the tailgate. It still works as intended, no more dropping the tailgate open, but the product won’t last long and for sure won’t be the product I buy to replace it.
