I use this at work to keep hoods from smashing my head in. It works pretty well especially on Chrysler products. One issue it has is that the opening is only about 3/8 in diameter and I have encountered a few lifters too wide for this tool.

The Lisle Gold Lift Support Clamps work great but buy 2 if you have a heavy hood just to be safe. I refuse to pay almost $100 for hood struts for my car that just go out anyways. So this was my answer along with a hood prop will last the life of my car and then some.

I've been using one of these to secure the rear hatch of my car for a couple of years now. The original struts lost enough pressure that they were no longer able to hold the hatch open on anything but the hottest day, and they were weak enough that on most other days that the hatch would fall back down after being opened. Not fun.

I picked up one of these support clamps when the dealership quoted me over $400 to replace the struts. Unable to find replacements from any local auto store (such is life on an island) I figured I'd just use this inexpensive clamp any time I needed both hands to load or unload my car and just deal with holding the hatch open otherwise. This clamp has worked fine over the past couple of years, and saved me from handing over hundreds of dollars to the dealership.

I recently discovered that Amazon stocks 3rd party struts that fit my car:

StrongArm 4597 Liftgate Lift Support

Given these were so cheap (10% of what the dealership wanted) and had good reviews, I decided to take the gamble. I ordered a pair, and used the support clamp when installing the new parts. Even with a single strut in place, the clamp had no problem holding the weight of the hatch while I fitted the replacement.

This tool costs very little, and does precisely what it needs to for struts of this size. It's definitely a worthwhile buy for anyone with similar problems.

This is a MUCH stronger, solid component then it looks on screen. It's size and overall construction make it a top quality unit, but it's not too bulky or heavy to get in the way. It's just right for the intended purpose - to hold up weak shock absorber helper lifts.

I use mine to help hold up weak hood lifts on my '03 Dodge Ram which has a very heavy, over-sized hood. It uses two very small shock absorber helper lifts that will "barely" keep the hood lifted at its highest point. If there's any breeze or decline then the hood won't stay up without the support clamp.

The cost for this simple clamp is a lot less then a new shock absorber. I priced one for my son's jeep rear window a few years back and it was outrageously expensive. I forget the actual cost, but it was way more then we were willing to pay. He used a long stick for many years to hold it up instead.

I wish we had tripped across one of these clamps back then. Oh well, live and DISCOVER...!?!

The clamp is easy to use by a single person and comes with a bright warning ribbon which can be used to remind you that the clamp is attached - if you choose to use it.

This tool is GREAT! No more failed shock dampers to hold open my camper glass on my truck. Tired of spending $80 every other year, because the oil froze or busted the shocks back there. Just one of these are all you need, and you're set. I put mine on the top bed rail, right inside the back edge - so it's handy.

The one I got has a brass screw and an aluminum forging for the 'C' body - still works great, very high quality. Definitely worth every penny, too. Long as it doesn't get lost, or stolen, I don't see this failing. The handle is plastic, but the threading on the screw is standard, so even if the plastic handle cracked, I'd just go to ACE hardware and get another screw and handle to replace it with...no big deal. Great idea.
