Working in construction, one of three inventors from Charlotte, N.C., had years of frustration at not being able to haul many materials in his pickup truck due to the materials’ length and weight. This finally inspired him and the co-inventors to think of an easy and reliable way to solve the problem.

The patent-pending TAILGATE EXTENDER is a full front & back collapsible ladder rack that turns the do-it-yourselfer's personal truck into a work truck and back again. It also connects to a fitting and allows you to extend the length of the load safely.

The TAILGATE EXTENDER makes hauling long materials and supplies in a pickup truck easier and safer. It helps prevent damage and the need for replacement, which saves money. It also aids in ladder support.

Ergonomic, versatile, easy to use and ideal for contractors and DIYers, the device is designed to avoid hassle and frustration, as well as promote efficiency, productivity and convenience.

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