You would think that finding the right strut, prop, lift, etc would be a simple search....no. It was a horrendous search to figure out the best one to use. They want you to have all kinds of information. Like: what does the hatch weigh, what amount of force is needed, what is the angle of lift etc. All kinds of numbers that just confused the heck outta me!
We finally took a chance on this one.
Here's the numbers that were most important to us:
We needed to know that when the hatch door is shut-what size is the space where the strut will be (fully depressed size). So the opening of our "hole" (where the strut would go) is the "strut depressed size" We left about 6" to give us room for error. [This is called the "compressed length" that a strut would need to be-this one is 11.8in (300mm)]
What size is longest that we could use when the hatch door is open? We mounted the fat part to the hatch door and the skinny rod part to the frame of our hole. When the rod is fully extended, it's length is 19.7in (500mm). Again we left a little room for error.
Now, we didn't weigh the door, but I guess it's about 50lbs. I have no ideal what the pounds of force needed to open & hold it open is.We didn't want one not strong enough to open and that would wear out too quickly or one that would sling the heck out of the door either. This one has a force of 100 Lbs. We just guessed here, but it worked perfectly.
This comes in a pack of two. (I figured that's great, in case we needed an extra or screwed one up.)
We used only one of them on the hatch door and it works perfectly. You barely push (or pull) on it then the strut does the rest of the work and lifts it open, then holds it open until you push (or pull) it shut (which doesn't take a lot of pressure either). We now have a back up on for when this one wears out. It has been used a lot and so far so good!
When you mount it-it needs to be in the fully open mode and straight up and down (meaning the brackets need to be exactly across from each other. We mounted the top of the strut on the door and lined up where it would land on the bottom frame of the floor opening. Once mounted, it will depress easily. (But you cannot depress these by hand-we tried.)
We used JR Products BR-1020 10mm Flat Gas Spring Mounting Brackets (2 of them) to mount it. They have all kinds of brackets-some with edges, etc. This one is flat and enabled up to place it perfectly where we needed it. http://smile.amazon.com/JR-Products-BR-1020-Mounting-Bracket/dp/B000BRF38Q?ie=UTF8&redirect=true&ref_=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_6
In the picture you can see the gas prop installed on our hatch door. We used regular sturdy hinges that we mounted on top of the hatch, but you could use piano hinges also. We cut out a hole to make it easier to grab and for my son (it's in his loft bedroom) to have a "lookout" to see who's wanting in. You could also easily just do an inset pull if you wanted.
I hope this review helps someone avoid all the aggravation we had trying to figure it out!
I have had so many people ask questions about these struts. All I can say is they work well for the application that I used them for. I don't know if they will work on your car or any car, I don't know if they will keep the back door of your SUV up or for that matter the door to your chicken coop. I don't know if they will help your car go down the road without bouncing either. If you think they might work you should try them out and see if they do. That is what I did when I thought they might work for the platform bed and then they did!
