Stabilus Invents the EZDown, Providing the First-Ever Affordable “Hands-Free” Truck Tailgate Lowering Device

Stabilus Invents the EZDown, Providing the First-Ever Affordable "Hands-Free" Truck Tailgate Lowering Device

Gastonia, NC (PRWEB) June 30, 2006

New, from Stabilus, Inc., one of the World's leading automotive industry gas spring manufacturers, comes the EZDown "Hands-Free" Tailgate Damper which costs less than a typical bedcap or cargo organizer.

EZDown was invented to provide greater ease and convenience in lowering pickup truck tailgates with a simple and affordable solution. The Problem: According to industry sales statistics, 85% of the pickup truck market is comprised of large pickups, and 70% of all pickup truck owners range from age 40 on up (with backs, knees, hips and shoulders that are less capable than they once were.) Additionally, truck beds continue to increase storage volume by raising wall height, so tailgates are used for loading now more than ever, and older owners are faced with the chore of handling them (35-40 lbs. bare, and 65-70 lbs for those with liner applied.)

Stabilus' EDZown kit equips pickup truck tailgates with soft-release, hands-free lowering, and using it couldn't be easier! Simply pull your tailgate release and the EZDown damper does the rest, making your loading job quick and easy. When closing the tailgate, EZDown helps ease the effort by counterbalancing the lifting load. Easy-to-follow instructions and basic tools add up to a quick 5-minute installation, and it's even simpler to remove for tailgate storage or transfer to a new truck at trade-in time.

Whether for easier truck bed access or for family and job-site convenience, the EZDown is a must have upgrade for your major model pickup. The current product scope covers late model Ford F150, GMC Sierra, Chevy Silverado and Dodge Ram trucks. During the course of the next year, Stabilus' goal is to develop additional kits that will work with a majority of the 40 million trucks registered and on the road in the U.S. today.
