    While installing this, the expansion bolt did not work the way is was suppose too. I measured the bolt very carefully and when tightening it according to the directions, the bolt worked it's way back out of the expansion screen. Now the screen was impossible to remove amd was not quit as tight as it should be. Had to drill and tap for another bolt in front of the point where the cylinder snapped on. Now it works fine and hope it holds well enough to work properly as time passes.
    Works but has issues

    This is really a great product. It makes opening the tailgate a lot easier for me as I'm in a wheel chair and the gate in hard to handle alone. It Is A # 1 Deal.
