    Re: Boot opening - spring loaded strut

    Thanks - Gordon - a neat and simple solution - and Guy - the self locking strut is a good idea and without the complication of assessing spring strengths , lengths , fixings etc. I'll re-think this - or just keep the length of dowel I currently use !

    Tim, I think this is the thread you were thinking of HERE.

    Cheers!

    Looking at Tim's solution and assuming you have a fibreglass boot lid would an option be to attach the gas strut to the boot hinge instead? Might be a little on the diagonal so you might need a slightly longer one but this would eliminate the strain/stress issue?
