Designed to assist with closing the tailgate.
The strap is fixed at a convenient point on the inside of the tailgate. It is used to pull down the tailgate to a height where it can be reached and then stores away neatly using a magnet before closing.
The force of the boot closing will release the strap from the magnet so it can be reached when boot is next opened.
The height and weight of the tailgates can vary significantly between vehicle models therefore we recommend you check that you can operate the tailgate on any new vehicle you are looking to buy before ordering.
Many vehicles can now be ordered with the option of an electric tailgate. If you have difficulties in opening or closing the tailgate on a vehicle, we would recommend you look into the option of ordering a vehicle with an electric tailgate.
