It does what you think it does. Since the tailgate is so light, it does take a little longer than expected for the tailgate to fully lower.

I was very pleased with this product. It greatly helps with letting my tailgate down without just dropping it. I have a step installed onto my tailgate that makes it a little heavier than normal and this keeps me from having to deal with that extra weight. Now if I could find one to help close it LOL.
