C.E. Smith LED Lighted Post Guide-Ons
I bought this product because my rear window is narrow and with a suspension lift it makes it hard to see the boat or especially the trailer when backing up. I bought the 60 inch version and it works perfectly. It makes backing up a breeze. The lights are a nice feature when it's dark. They're not too bright which is nice. The metal posts inside the PVC tubes seems a little flimsy but it works for now. we'll see how long it lasts. Overall, I'm pleased with the purchase.

I wish I would have bought these years ago. This is a must have for any boat, any size, look, etc. I put them on my Tracker Panfish 16 and they work great. They help tremendously when loading the boat in wavy or windy conditions. or when you are using a ramp that requires you to back further down to load the boat, these keep your boat lined straight and center. They are flexible and will take a lot of pressure if you hit one.
These are an easy install. The electrical side of is is easy, you just take the adapter provided and clamp two wires together and its done.
I would buy another set tomorrow if something happened to mine.
The only negative I have to say is, I wish they would have wired the lights to also work with your brakes and not just running.

Completely rewired my boat trailer with new LED Submersible trailer lights, all new wiring and these new LED post guide-ons. Spent the most of my time trying to troubleshoot why one of the post LEDs would not work. After redoing the ground and soldering the all wiring and double checking everything; I came to the conclusion that the one post LED assy was defective. Now I have to figure out how to get it replaced!

Just what I needed
I bought these because I literally could not see my bass boat trailer at all when the boat was not on it. they were easy to install, had all necessary hardware and no instructions were needed. I really like the LED lights on the ends. they make the trailer more visible at night and day. the front 1/2 is amber and the rear is red! now I can back my trailer with much more confidence. A little pricey but still worth it.
