Auto-Lift Tailgate™



The Auto-Lift Tailgate™ is a new type of tailgate for pickup trucks. It is an automated tailgate that slides up inside the bed to access the load without reaching over the sides or climbing up into the bed.

When finished, the tailgate is moved back to the closed position for normal operation. This tailgate eliminates the difficulties that an open tailgate present, such as reaching over the tailgate to reach and unload items, having to open the garage door to open the tailgate, or even forgetting to close the tailgate before driving off.

The Auto-Lift Tailgate™ is a new truck accessory that lifts the tailgate up and slides it into the truck bed for easy access from the rear of the bed. The one-piece tailgate slides up on a motorized chain and sprocket assembly that is located within the truck bed walls. No leaning over a tailgate, leaning over the sides, or climbing into the truck bed is required for loading and unloading cargo.

When open, the tailgate is located within the bed. No manual labor is required for lifting the tailgate to access the truck bed. The cargo is easy to reach from the opening at the back of the truck bed, especially for owners who do not have an exceptionally long reach. Truck owners who are disabled will also enjoy having a tailgate that does not need to be lowered and remains in the way while trying to load or unload cargo.

The Auto-Lift Tailgate™ is the “next big thing” in automotive innovation. It will be offered as a tailgate option to be ordered at the time of new truck purchases, and all truck owners will appreciate the convenience and efficiency of this new tailgate technology.
