Inventor Develops Versatile Tailgate Kit for Pickups (HTM-4232)

Share Article

Pittsburgh-based InventHelp, a leading inventor service company, is submitting this client’s idea, R.H. Gate, in the hopes of a good faith review.

"I own a half-ton pickup. I always have to reach over the tailgate to either pick up or set down an object so that I can close the tailgate," said an inventor from Shepherdsville, Ky. "This is inconvenient and bothersome, which led me to develop this more versatile tailgate kit."

He developed the patent-pending R.H. GATE to allow the tailgate to be moved out of the way to load and unload items to and from the truck bed. This provides quick and easy access to the truck bed. The design ensures that the tailgate is out of the way to accommodate a slide-in camper. It eliminates the need to remove the tailgate. Furthermore, all of this saves time and effort. Additionally, the invention is adaptable for use with new and existing pickup trucks.

The original design was submitted to the Houston office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
