I am thinking about getting the gate glide for my 2021 22SSBX to keep the bow and side gates open when docking. Wondering what other experiences are with Bennington's gate glide. Are they easy to use? Thanks!

likely... haven't contacted them yet, but figured I wanted to understand the "markup" they may be charging. My boat is coming out of the water and getting winterized and stored by the dealer in about a month, so I may just add it to the list of things to "do"...

We have them on our 2022 SX. Love them. Our friend who has the same boat in a 2019 model said he ordered them when he saw ours, from Captain’s Choice marine in Columbia SC.

Make sure that your dealer knows the Gate Glide is actually two pieces. One piece is the black, white or gray piece that mounts to the deck. The second piece mounts to the inside of the gate and engages the colored piece to lock it open. Neither myself or my dealer were aware of this last spring when I asked them to put these on my boat. It took a while but they finally got it right. I have no idea why Bennington sells only the colored piece separately instead of only as one portion of a complete set. Could they possibly wear out over time? BTW, the Gate Glides work great!
