I got some questions for those that have built ramp gate assists. I basically want to model mine after the EZ Gate design. They use a piece with pulleys on the top rail to guide the cable through. I wonder if using a forged eye bolt would work?. In other words something that is smooth with no edges for the cable to rub on as it's being guided. I even wonder if the pulleys are actually turning with all that weight/pressure from the cable on the EZ Gates anyway? Also any tips as to what I can use to elevate the protective pipe up from the trailers rail? EZ Gates design shows it up about an inch or so. I suppose a bunch of washers would work, but I was looking for something cleaner looking. Last thing, how do you go about using a safety cable inside the spring? I'm guessing it has to be as long as the spring is when fully stretched (when ramp is down)? How do I attach the cable? I know, it's alot of questions. I just want it be safe and work smoothly. Otherwise I'm better off buying an EZ Gate. Thanks.
