This boat trailer replacement PVC guide on pole is manufactured out of 2 inch schedule 40 PVC. The outside diameter of the PVC guide pole measures 2 3/8 inches and stands 48 inches tall. This listing includes the Top Cap with the PVC post. The 2 inch Schedule 40 PVC is very common on Boat Trailer Guide Poles. Typically these slide over 1 1/2 inch Square Galvanized Tubing or Aluminum Tubing. On most of the Galvanized or Aluminum Guides there is a stop piece that prevents the PVC from sliding all the way down. If you are planning on mounting Trailer Lights, like Boat Trailer Pipe Lights, it is recommended to secure the pvc to the guide pole using a set screw, or through bolt. Securing the PVC prevents is from spinning and damaging the lights.
