This review is from: Dee Zee DZ43200 Tailgate Assist (Automotive) Would get 5 stars except for the poor instructions. Great product, good price. Here is how to install…. Read step one of the instructions and make the head of the allen screw 3/4″ from the nut….then insert the gold colored end into the correct tailgate hole as far as it will go…NOW….DO NOT DO WHAT THE INSTRUCTIONS SAY….INSTEAD….hold the allen screw in place with the correct fitting wrench, THEN TURN THE HEX SCREW NEXT TO THE WASHER (tighten it, towards the tailgate)..DONT TURN THE ALLEN HEAD. Keep turning until it fits tight (even tho they say ‘9’ turns and no more….mine took 12). Tug on the bolt and if the washer against the tailgate is firmly in place and doesnt have any slack, LOOSEN THE NUT AND REMOVE THE ALLEN SCREW. There you have it. The rest is a piece of cake if you follow the directions. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (9) Reply 13 of 13 people found the following review helpful now my 2013 F150 tailgate is complete., December 5, 2012 By Amazon Customer – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Dee Zee DZ43200 Tailgate Assist (Automotive) the tailgate does weigh a ton. I have installed a master lock and this both from Amazon. The directions were not that good. I used the comments from a few other users to get it installed correctly. After the install it worked like the ads. Nice. Again 5 star product with a 3 start install guide. Also the Nut-insert thing could be improved. Overall if you have a newer truck that has back up camera, man step, etc. you need this. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 12 of 13 people found the following review helpful Works great once you modify it., August 9, 2014 By B. Johnson – This review is from: Dee Zee DZ43200 Tailgate Assist (Automotive) Shipped fast, works great after modifying it. Do not use the supplied nut-sert. Search online for instructions and use a nut and lock-washer on the back of the stud on the tailgate. It will never work loose this way. Also stack three washers under the stud to offset it and keep from pinching the tailgate cable. Oh ya, the supplied hex wrench is garbage. It was cast wrong and wouldn’t even work. Once done, it works great, no more accidentally slamming the tailgate open. Can’t beat the price. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (4) Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
