What is tailhand?

TailHand is a customizable pickup truck accessory that transforms your tailgate into a highly versatile portable workstation. It enables you to use not only TailHand accessories but your current tools like ratchet straps, clamps, power tools and more. By attaching to the tailgate of almost any mid-size or full-size pickup truck, the TailHand secures and stabilizes tools, equipment, and materials, letting you get more done, from anywhere.

Safely Secure Your Tools

TailHand uses a patented locking key system on several accessories. TailHand accessories lock your materials in place, ensuring you work safely and with precision.

Precision work, from anywhere

What can I do with my new TailHand?

Frankly, the possibilities are endless and we’re excited to see all of the creative ways our customers use their TailHand. The TailHand system provides a versatile work surface and customizable accessories that let you  work with large, unwieldy or heavy tools and materials safely and efficiently, from anywhere. For ideas on how to increase your Truckability®, check out some of our examples. 

Is TailHand compatible with my truck?

TailHand is compatible with almost all midsize and standard pickup truck tailgates. We offer two sizes in order to give you the best fit for your truck. Our easy-to-install frame provides the flexibility you need to ensure a secure installation, regardless of your midsize or standard truck make or model. Check out our exact specifications to select the TailHand that best fits your truck. 

Certain tailgate features, such as split tailgates or unfolding steps, may not be compatible with TailHand.   

Will TailHand interfere with anything in the bed of my truck?

The TailHand platform is 2.25” deep and should not interfere with factory-installed truck bed features. However, it’s always a good idea to measure your specific truck in advance to be sure the TailHand will not interfere with your unique set-up. Check out our detailed specifications

Does the TailHand Platform require installation?

Yes but we've made sure it’s fast and easy to do. Installing TailHand is a simple 2-step process: first you’ll install the frame to your tailgate and then you’ll attach the TailHand work surface to the frame. Every TailHand ships with easy-to-understand installation instructions and you can always check out our install video.

Where can I buy TailHand?

TailHand is available to buy, yet. We're working hard to make it available for you as quickly as possible.

How durable is my TailHand?

The TailHand work surface is constructed of extruded aluminum and other metal components, all manufactured in the U.S.A.. The TailHand work surface is also e-coated, which is a method of painting that uses electrical current to deposit paint on a surface. E-coating provides superior corrosion resistance, is environmentally friendly and ensures your TailHand lasts forever.

Most TailHand accessories are made from a combination of metal and highly durable injection molded glass-reinforced nylon, which can handle significant stress without bending or breaking, providing you with the reliability you need for even your toughest projects.  

How much weight can the TailHand hold? 

We have successfully stress-tested the TailHand work surface with weights of up to 500 pounds. However, pickup truck tailgates have their own weight limits. It’s important that you check your truck’s individual owners manual to be sure you protect your tailgate when increasing your Truckability®. 

Can I remove my TailHand and reinstall it on another tailgate?

Yes! It is easy to remove your TailHand and install it on another tailgate, which increases the value of your TailHand system. Whether you’d like to purchase a second frame for easy movement between multiple tailgates or simply detach your original frame and install it on an alternate tailgate, your TailHand can go with you to increase your Workability®.
