Whether you refer to them as trailer door slider plates, trailer floor gap covers, trailer transition flaps, door flaps, or ramp threshold covers, one of the most fundamental enclosed cargo trailer accessories is trailer door slider plates. Slider plates are essential for trailer safety, trailer floor protection, trailer appearance enhancement, and for ease of loading and unloading your trailer.
Raise your hand if you’ve tried to roll one of those heavy tool boxes with small wheels up the ramp and onto your trailer floor. You know what happens…you forget that you need to lift the tool box over the gap when you get to the top of the ramp where the trailer door meets the trailer floor. And when you forget, you jam the tool box wheels into the gap and you bust off one of the wheels or you put a big ding in your trailer floor or the worst is when you get the tool box wheel stuck between the trailer floor frame and the fold down door frame…that really stinks.
Another common issue, for trailers that don’t have gap covers at the threshold where the trailer door meets the trailer door, is that the gap is a troublesome spot where many ankles get turned. It is so easy to be walking backwards while trying to guide your motorcycle or lawnmower up the ramp that you don’t pay attention to where you set down your foot and the next thing you know you are falling over in pain since your ankle turned. You think your ankle hurts until you watch your pride and joy roadster roll down the ramp and crash into a wall. Now you know what pain is.

We recently posted a blog article about a local landscape professional who seriously outfitted his lawn care equipment hauling enclosed trailer and is reaping the rewards every time he drops his trailer door at the next job site. He claims one of the most useful trailer accessories he installed is the trailer door slider plates. The trailer door gap covers really help him load his smaller push mower with the small wheels.
