    These are really good and sturdy and you can't beat the price. I installed them, then re-installed them 4 or 5 times to get the proper distance from the boat. I have a Monster Tower on my Sea Doo Challenger Jet Boat so those brackets stick out and cause a little problem when loading the boat but it still is great. I have to leave a little more distance for the brackets but they easily adjust. One day was really windy and rocky and I walked the boat right into the guides and onto the trailer even though the water was super choppy. I watched another guy with a Jet Boat crack his fender that day because he drove it right onto the fender and he did not have any guides! It has paid for itself over and over now. These look nice too and if the PVC gets banged up after a while, you can just replace the PVC. Best purchase I have made yet!

    I was sent a product that was missing parts, the post were damaged and the box looked like it had been taped up more then once. When I called it in I was sent another different part on the same order? Then I had two parts to return.
    I finally got a good set of guide on post.But it was a hassle to get.I don't agree with the pop up for contributions - If you want to support this group do it on your own.Folks were good to deal with in service.

        If you have any trouble getting your boat on the trailer straight and in the middle, buy this and you never will again. Great for windy days, or when a jerk ignores the no wake zone right as you are getting on the trailer.(Happened this past weekend!)

            Easy to install and just what I needed for my boat. Makes it easy to load the boat no matter the tides/wind or boat ramp elevations. Also helps when backing the boat and makes all very visable. Thanks again Overtons for a great product and fair rates.

                    A:

                    Yes,however you may want to do a little adjusting by trying it on top or bottom of the trailer rail. I found I get a better height and fit by going on top instead of following instructions. I went to my locate hardware store and got reflectors and put on the plastic poles to help with visability and my old eye sight!
