Ezdown, the in­ven­tor of the orig­i­nal hy­draulic tail­gate damper, has re­leased its so­lu­tion for low­er­ing and rais­ing ute tail­gates, al­low­ing you to con­trol both the open­ing of the tail­gate and of­fer­ing as­sis­tance dur­ing clo­sure. The patented Reloaded sys­tem uses a Sta­bilus hy­draulic dy­namic oil damper that slows the de­scent of the tail­gate, while a tor­sion pod builds up ten­sion dur­ing the process. This ten­sion is then re­leased on the 14-coil, highly sprung steel tor­sion rod dur­ing rais­ing and clo­sure of the tail­gate, al­low­ing you to barely use a sin­gle fin­ger to close it. This tail­gate-as­sist so­lu­tion from Ezdown is highly re­garded in the in­dus­try, with Volk­swa­gen, Toy­ota and Mazda among the many man­u­fac­tur­ers that use it. RRP: from $300 Web­site: www.ezdown.com.au
