The EZDown’s quick disconnect dampers prevent a tailgate from slamming shut by absorbing the speed of descent. This makes opening and closing the tailgate not only more convenient, but safer – kids won’t get knocked out.

The system works in tandem with a vehicle’s standard cables, so a tailgate will retain its factory-rated load capacity.
