Trailer Guide Poles

Any recommendations for clamp on guide poles? For making getting RIB onto trailer easier in "spirited" conditions...

Seem to be few and far between in UK as per google search.

I have sbs ones I used on the hard boat. They worked very well but quite a bit of force occurred at times, as a result I never fitted them to my rib trailer and they now live in the garden

A local fabricator made mine on my old sib, after I measured and gave him dimensions. £70 including galvanising. Bought some 'U' bolts, pipe insulation, and gaffer tape, and jobs a good un...!
