Ordered the Sportgate end of Jan 2019 and finally installed it at the end of March.  The instructions are in color and are very good.  I have two things I'd like to identify though.
  • On the Product Components list (page 3), item #5 is four 16 x 0.75 Allen head bolts.  These bolts are not shown anywhere else in the instructions.  I overlooked installing them and just recently saw the empty bolt holes.  After looking it over, I cannot tell what they are used for.
  • Concerning the cutting of the third brake light wiring (page 4, step 1, subsection D), I did not cut the wire at this time.  I was installing a third brake light ring and wanted to see how much wiring I would need to reach the ring's connector.  A suggestion is to annotate in the instructions the need to not cut the wire too short or to cut it later when/if installing a third brake light.  
Other than those two issues, I really love the Sportgate.  It is very stout and my spare tire (37") does not move or rattle at all.
