Default Tailgate extender questions

Hello, I have a 2013 Crew cab. For about 7 weeks a year I do lawn sprinkler blowouts on the weekends. I carry 2 gas compressors, a hose reel and tool box. I used to fit it all in no problem with my 03 and a longer bed. with the shorter bed I have a few options. Mount the reel higher to clear the compressor handles, which is prob the best option but I am short...lol. Put the reel on a hitch basket, also easy and would keep the hose clear of the body.

Or, I was thinking of getting a tailgate extender and putting the reel there. Now do any of these devices lock the tailgate down? I cant imagine it would be good for the tailgate to be bouncing when I hit big bumps. is it even safe to drive around with weight on the tailgate? my reel setup isn't heavy, maybe 50 lbs or so.

that would fix the issue of the tailgate jumping up and down.
