The EZ Gate was developed in 1995 to help increase efficiency and decrease back injuries in the lawn care business. After seeing the positive results, Ballard Inc. spent the next few years working on marketing and production strategies for the EZ Gate. In the Fall of 1999, the EZ Gate entered the Lawn & Landscape products marketplace. The response was greater than expected. EZ Gates are now being shipped to every state.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do I need two of these like some other brands? One on each side?
A: No, the Ez Gate is designed with a special heavy duty spring so only one unit is needed keeping the other side of the trailer open for racks and / or side loading. The other units on the market use much lighter springs and cable reducing overall lifting power and longevity.
Q: What if I have split gates?
A: We recommend pinning or bolting them back together and using one Ez Gate.
Q: Will it work on my dove tail truck or trailer?
A: Yes, we have kits for both units available on our site.
Q: Why does it cost more than another similar product on the market also labeled as Ez Gate?
A: Our unit is the original of this design and we use a stainless steel housing, aluminum pulley assembly and a much heavier aircraft cable. Not painted steel. No rusting, better looking, stronger spring, longer lasting. Fact.
Q: Will this work on trailers with round side rails?
A: Yes, each kit comes with the hardware for both flat side-rails and tubular.
