My friend bought a pair of this guides and I seen how they assist getting his pontoon on the trailer even with winds and white caps. So I had to get a pair because for those who own pontoons know it can be a bear to load a pontoon on the trailer during these times. The only problem I've had it getting damaged items everytime I got a set delivered (3). The way these guides are placed in the box without protecting the plastic covers casue them to be scratched up upon delivery. The edge of the base of the guides move loosily in the box, rubbing against the plactic guides. After getting the product three times, I finally called the manufacture to complain about the packaging. They told me the packaging wasn't an issue and the way I mounted the guides were the problem, at that time the guides were not mounted to the trailer. The manufacture agreed to send me a set of plastic guides to replace the damage ones. And speaking to my friend, he told me his was damaged upon getting them in and after getting two sets he decided to just keep them because he wanted the extra assistance the guides provide loading his pontoon. The bottom line is, I beleive this item is a great product to add to any trailer to assist guiding the pontoon onto the trialer and prevent damage to the trailer and boat. I highly recommend this added feature. I just wish the manufacture would take some added time to protect their product from damage. Overton's sell quality items and this doesn't hold to Overton's standards.

                My trailer frame is 2"X3" your specs say the U bolts are 1/2 X 3". On the reviews there are many complaints that the U bolts are too short. Are longer U bolts available? Or have the short bolts been replaced with longer ones?

                  Hello Pawpaw,

                  The U-bolts are long enough for the Guide-Ons to fit a 2" x 3" cross member. But we do offer U-bolts that are 2-1/8" x 4" (Item # 31968).

                  Thank you,
                  Steve

                  We would not recommend these for a tri-toon pontoon boat. The black pvc that protects the pontoons from the guide is only covering three sides of the guide so there is the potential that your center pontoon will make contact with the metal on the inside of the guide. We would recommend item 74124. Thanks

                  Yes. In most cases pontoon boaters will use a set in the front and rear to help guide the boat on the trailer and to help keep it from crossing up.
