At the SEMA New Products Awards this morning Elongator was awarded the prize for Best New Van/Pickup/Sport-Utility Product. The Elongator is a patented tailgate with an integrated, folding extension that replaces your factory tailgate. This extension can lock in two positions. First at 180 degrees. This will extend the length of your cargo bed by two feet to help securely carry long loads. The extension can also lock at 210 degrees. This forms the basis of a loading ramp. Stored inside the Elongator are two 4-foot aluminum ramp sections that attach to the extension in multiple locations. These create two 6 foot ramps that provide easy access to the cargo bed for wheeled vehicles and equipment such as an ATV, a motorcycle, a lawn tractor or mower.
The Elongator is always there. You never have to bring an extension or a ramp. It is there when you need it and out of the way when you don't. It does not intrude into the truck bed any more than the factory gate. There is also a small storage box in the gate to stow things like tie downs, gloves and tools. And it looks great too.
