    E-Z Slide & BunkEnder Resources

    Learn why E-Z Slide bunk slicks are ideal for shallow ramps and low water launching, and how BunkEnders offer cost-effective protection against premature carpet wear on your trailer bunks. The following articles and video present the benefits of using our E-Z Slide bunk slicks and BunkEnders and answer questions about installation and maintenance.

    Q. What are the E-Z slides and BunkEnders made from?
    The E-Z Slides and BunkEnders are molded from a slippery plastic composite.

    Q. How far apart should I place my E-Z slides?
    The E-Z Slides should be placed approximately 12”-18" apart.

    Q. What are the weight restrictions for using the E-Z slides?
    E-Z Slides are recommended for metal boats up to 4,000 lbs. and fiberglass boats up to 1,500 lbs. At weights over 1,500 lbs. the pressure of the slides against the fiberglass hull can crack fiberglass gel coat.

    Q. Can I use E-Z Slides with a Painted Bottom Boat?
    It is not recommended. While the pads will slide fine on a painted bottom, they may abrade or scratch the bottom paint where it contacts the slides.

    Q. Can I use E-Z Slides with a riveted metal boat?
    Yes, E-Z Slides work fine with riveted metal boats up to 4000 lbs.

    Q. How do I mount the E-Z Slides and BunkEnders?
    The E-Z Slides and BunkEnders mount directly to your trailer bunks, over carpeted or bare bunks. Drill 1/8" pilot hole through one of the mounting holes and attach the pad with a stainless steel screw (supplied). Make sure other end of pad is flushed with the bunk and repeat. Do not over-tighten screw - as damage to the trailer slide may result. Be sure that the screw head is level and fully set into the screw well so that the head is below the surface of the pad. Screw heads on an improperly installed trailer slide can scratch or gouge the bottom of your boat.

    Q. What size trailer bunks will the E-Z slides fit?
    The E-Z Slides are available in sizes to fit bunks 2”, 4” and 6” wide. E-Z Slides come in three widths: 1.5", 3" and 5".

    Q. What size trailer bunks will the BunkEnders fit?
    BunkEnders are 3” wide and are for bunks 4” or 6” wide. On 6” wide bunks, mount your E-Z Slides on the inner edge of the end of the bunk where the most contact and wear occur.

    The boat must be removed from the trailer before installing. The E-Z Slides and BunkEnders may be installed over the bunk carpet or directly to the bunks. Make sure that the wood in the bunks is not rotten before installing the pads.

    Confirm that you have enough slides to adequately cover the bunks. The pads should be spaced 12” – 18” apart on the bunks.

    1. Position the first pad (EZ Slide or BunkEnder), smooth side up, at the end of the bunk with the end of the pad flush with the end of the bunk. Drill a 1/8” pilot hole through one of the mounting holes and attach the pad with a stainless screw (supplied). The screw must be tightened by hand as over-tightening may damage the pad. Before drilling the second pilot hole, be sure that the pad is resting flat against the bunk. Drill the second pilot hole and secure the pad with another screw. The screws should be seated snugly in the molded holes and the screw heads should be well below the surface of the pads (to prevent scratching of the boat hull).
    2. Position the second pad at the other end of the bunk. Secure as described in Step 1 with stainless steel screws.
    3. Evenly space the remaining E-Z Slide Pads between the ends of the bunk and secure to bunks with the remaining stainless screws. The pads should be spaced 12”-18” apart, with heavier boats requiring closer spacing.
    4. Repeat the procedure for the other bunk(s).
    5. Check all pads to ensure that they are securely fastened and the screw heads are below the surface of the pad.

    The E-Z Slides and BunkEnders will enable boats to slide on and off bunk trailers more easily and protect your bunks from wear. They are molded from a slippery plastic composite and will mount directly to existing bunks.

    The E-Z Slides and BunkEnders are not designed for use with every boat and may damage the boat’s bottom if used inappropriately.

    Please read the following usage guidelines before mounting the E-Z Slides or BunkEnders to your trailer.

    E-Z Slides and BunkEnders are recommended for the following:

    • All metal boats with an unpainted bottom
    • Fiberglass boats weighing less than 1,500 pounds (boat and motor combined weight).

    Welded metal boats with painted bottoms may experience paint wear or scuffing in those areas contacting the pads, similar to normal wear that can occur with carpeted bunks.

    Fiberglass boats weighing more than 1,500 pounds may experience surface damage to their gel coat finish in those areas coming in contact with the pads.

    Owners using the E-Z Slides and BunkEnders do so strictly at their own risk. Ironwood Pacific Outdoors, Inc. will accept no claims for any damage to these boats.

    Before launching your boat from a trailer mounted with E-Z Slide and BunkEnder Pads be sure to attach a line to the boat so that it can be controlled from the dock or shore. Do not remove the winch line until the boat is in the water. The boat must be tied down securely when transporting on a trailer mounted with E-Z Slide or BunkEnder Pads.

    The pads should be wiped clean of road grit each time before loading the boat. Inspect the pads to ensure that the pads are secure, the screws remain tight, and that no undue wear is occurring on the pads. The pads should be removed if undue wear is occurring on the pads or on the boat.

    The E-Z Slides and BunkEnders are warranted against defects in material and workmanship under normal use for a period of five years. If the product fails due to defects in material or workmanship, return the damaged item to us along with the original dated receipt. Your repaired item or replacement product will be returned to you postpaid.

    The directions say 12-18" apart... I did a combination of space lengths due to the amount of sliders I purchased to cover 8 carpeted guides on my pontoon boat trailer (max 18"). I would recommend where the bulk weight of boat comes in contact with the sliders I would put them closer together. The pontoons seem to be sitting on a lot less that I thought it would so the weight is on maybe 6 on each side (at 18" separation). Next summer I will buy a few more and space them closer together.

    These slides are great for launching your boat by yoursef or on a shallow ramp. My 18 foot pontoon slid off with ease when launching by myself..noticed the difference the very first time i used them.the quality of the hardware is good and they are easy to install.

    Received the correct number of slides ordered (20) but only received enough SS screws for 8 slides

    Ironwood Pacific Slides & Enders

    • Everything
    • Pricey but more than worth the price
    20' Pontoon Trailer w/ 16' Bunks. Dreaded taking the boat out every season. Was always very difficult, never a good time. Basically it was a nightmare. Because it was always a problem I was very skeptical of any product making things any better. Put the slides & enders on bunks (very easy) and took the boat out a few days ago. I was amazed at how much this product helped. What a breeze. I will never worry about taking the boat out again. If you have trouble loading your boat GET these. They will change your boat/trailer life. 20 stars for this product.

    Works like a charm

    • indentations for screws
    • Solid construction
    • Great customer service
    • Can buy in bulk
    I recently changed the bunk boards on my pontoon and chose not to skip the bunk carpet as I think that it is extremely over priced. I went with treated lumber and have read that treated can effect the aluminum on the pontoons if kept in contact. After a lot of research I chose Ironwood's EZ slide due to the good reviews and design of their product. I lined my trailer with slides at the distance they suggested and it works beautifully. The first time I loaded my toon I cut the engine and walked to the front of the boat to latch the winch strap and my boat slid back into the water from the weight shift. I never dreamed that they would work that good.
