What are the benefits of setting a height setting on your liftgate? 


You might be wondering why this feature was designed when a fully opened trunk is usually fine if not optimal. However, one of the benefits of a height-adjustable liftgate is that people with a limited range of motion can still manually close the trunk if they wish to. Furthermore, setting a lower height option could potentially be useful in a small space, where the door would be scratched if it opened all the way up.
