An Innovation for pickup truck owners who need more space!
Popular with users who frequently have to transport their off-road motorcycles on the truck-bed, we wanted to stop their fuel cans, helmets and other accessories falling off the back of their trucks on their way to the dirt track. By adding a Stainless steel and Acetyl frame that fits around the tailgate and is almost the same height as the sides of the load- bin or bed, it provides a barrier to prevent your load from falling off the open tailgate.
Not your regular bed-extender
The problem users face with regular bed-extenders is that the frame is mostly rigid and when not in use they take up unnecessary space inside the truck-bed. The result is that the device is left at home until needed again. Unfortunately as the name suggests a pickup truck is meant to do just that; Pick up things, and the user often finds themselves miles from home and have to pick up a large load that requires a bed-extender and do not have it with them.
How the RIGXtender is different
The new innovative RIGXtender, overcomes these limitations by utilising a unique design, designed by EZRig in partnership with Industrial Specalised Applications a clever addition, that allows the RIGXtender to "fold" inwards into the truck-bed or outward onto the tailgate.
It means that when not in use, the RIGXtender can be tucked behind the closed tailgate taking up virtually no space inside the truck-bed or even better, against the front of the Bin behind the rear window ensuring that it is always on hand when you need it.
Unlike traditional "one-trick-pony" bed-extenders however, the RIGXtender can do so much more than just extend into the tailgate.
Even more features
The RIGXtender also features a unique horizontal top bar that is designed to carry a load in order to allow longer objects like tubing, pipes, timber, lumber etc to be secured and safely transported. Even better, this horizontal bar can be height adjusted vertically in 4 positions and can be used as a "reverse-loading" carry rack extending up to the edge of the tailgate. This allows objects that are longer than the total length of the pick-up-bed and tailgate to be transported as raising the top bar and by implication the one end of the load, the amount of overhang off the rear of the vehicle is greatly reduced.
(Please refer to your local legislation regarding the distance and circumstances applicable to extended loads.)
Made of stainless steel
The entire RIGXtender is manufactured by EZDown Manufacturing and its made from extremely tough, polished stainless steel and tube-end covers made from Acetyl. Not your Cheap Aluminum and plastic designed extender. The design of the RIGXtender and in particular the attachment brackets to the truck-bed allow the load to be equally spread between the Pick-up bed and the tailgate as opposed to just on the tailgate. Therefore giving you piece of mind of loading capabilities.
(Maximum recommended static load on the EZXtender is 50kg or 100 pounds)
