Closing aids are an increase in comfort for the vehicle and can be retrofitted for both the doors and the tailgate of a vehicle if not already installed at the factory. However, the retrofitting depends on the vehicle type and is not possible at a general rate. Corresponding parts for retrofitting for different vehicle types are available on the Internet. The technical structure of such retrofit devices is discussed in more detail below.
Closing aid - how is it structured?
The closing aids are technically effective devices that are composed of several components. There is a control unit that is essential for using the closing aid. There is also a locking plate, a holder and a cable set. The cable set should of course be suitable for the respective vehicle and ideally preconfigured. The closing aid should increase the ease of use noticeably. Variants for the doors and for the tailgate are available in stores. However, "almost" only in the form of series parts. Before buying, you should therefore determine the exact area of application where the closing aid will be used, and check whether the car is suitable for it. If you want to do the installation yourself, you should pay attention to a complete package that is suitable for retrofitting the vehicle. When installing yourself, you have to pay attention to various installation difficulties and the installation time. Manufacturers or distributors of closing aids for doors and tailgates indicate the estimated installation time and also the compatibility. The installation time can easily be 4 hours or more. It should be ensured that detailed and understandable installation instructions are enclosed with the delivery.
What are the advantages of closing aid?
A pulling aid for doors, for sliding doors at Trangsporter or for the tailgate enhances the car. With older car models, the ease of use can be significantly increased. Slightly falling into the lock ensures that the door closes automatically. The closing aids work electrically. With such help, the tailgate and doors no longer have to be closed with difficulty. It is enough to put the doors and tailgate lightly on the frame. The closing aid takes care of the rest electrically and closes the doors and tailgate. At the same time, the help can also ensure that the car is completely locked. This is particularly practical with the trunk.
suitable car model and device compatibility
The closing aids for the doors of a car are available for many, including older, car models. It is important to pay attention to the product attributes. The product descriptions indicate for which car models and for which equipment variants the respective closing aid is suitable. It is also important for the tailgate closing aid how the tailgate opens. Variants with a tailgate that opens at the top may require different device models than transporter variants with rear doors. And there can also be significant differences between a station wagon and a sedan. However, all of this is usually stated in the product description. For example, an item can also be suitable for vans, multivans and other types of cars. If you want to retrofit a closing aid for the doors of the vehicle and have sliding side doors, for example, you should also pay attention to the product suitability. When retrofitting a closing aid for the doors of a car or for the tailgate, no coding is usually necessary after the installation work has been completed. In the following video there is a "manual" variant for a transporter. This is also a good alternative to being able to close the door comfortably.
The completely self-sufficient locking system is almost always installed without interfering with the existing on-board electronics and usually includes a set for 4 doors including cable set and installation instructions. Another system often has to be ordered for the tailgate.
