What the heck is that????
The problem with using pvc pipe to house the garage door springs in that they can break quite easily if you drop something on them especially if it is colder outside. If you do make something up try to use 2" diameter fence post pipe or something similar.
No offense but, it would have to be pretty cold for that to happen. My trailer is safely tucked away for the winter. I only use the tubes to keep from pinching anyones fingers. The spring is SECURED, believe me. I've used it for several years now and it's been ok.
looks like suspension system not a gate assist
looks interesting no cables to trip over-Do you have more info and better pics -
Could you post a picture of the mounting set-up for the leaf spring assist where it is attached to the gate?
The leaf spring route would definetely be the safest and cleanest way to go. I think that pic was a series of pics on the site from another user. I believe that was one taken on his side ramp of his trailer. I think with a search you might be able to find some more pics of that setup.
I agree, the Leaf Spring looks like the best way to go. What comapny manufactures those? We need more pics of how the Leaf Spring is mounted to the trailer.
I have personally never seen any manufacturer produce that kind of lift. I believe the pic is from someone who made it themselves. I am sure you could pick up an old leaf spring from a salvage yard. All ya need is a welder and some other stuff. I bet you could make one of those for less than $25.
A member, Yankee Clipper owns that trailer. I haven't heard from him in a while. It's patented by Tesh & Sons, they manufacture all kinds of trailers in Welcome NC. Here's some more pics.
Here's a picture of his whole trailer, it's really sweet!
