That has been my worry also, I seen some guys put the springs in pvc pipes with caps on it, I think thats the route I'm gonna take for safety.
Thanks for the webpage I will defiantly check it out.I think everyone is going in the wrong direction with this idea. Here is a simplier idea, I just don't know with size to use. (and neither do they) I got this idea after I saw one on a 6'x14' landscape trailer. Using a torsion ramp spring, no cable's or spring's are in the way. The one I'm talking about is in the middle of the page.
well not all of us lift barbie trailer gates, mine is an equipment trailer with full ramps with stiff legs that I conected in the middle for my walker to go up and down. That gate is HEAVY and im a solo so its nice to be able to lift all that weight with one hand and not have to worry about making an appt at the hospital to have another Hernia fixedI think it is kinda silly putting an assist device on trailer ramps it is such a
small job to lift a ramp
