Exact fit, easy install. If I knew replacing these cylinders was this easy and reasonably priced, I would have done it a year ago and saved myself from repeatedly getting clocked in the head by a falling toolbox lid. 140416


Still working great, no issues at all. Thanks!

Installation is a snap. No more lid slamming shut on your hands and busting your knuckles. No more propping lid open. Save money on bandaids. Thanks ETrailer. 115516


Thanks to these new closures I can take my framing square and 24 level on the job at the same time.

The lift cylinders were shipped quickly, installed easily and work great. I was real tired of being smacked in the head and having my fingers smashed by the lid. That's all over now 129584

Searching for this item, found this web page and I saw the product that I needed and ordered. I ordered two, one for each side, I get them in less than a week. It took me about a minute to instal one side, saved the other part for later instsllation. 160824


by: Jim O.12/16/2010

finding what I needed I was in search of some replacement lift cylinders for my truck box. I didn't know where to start locally for these parts so I was fortunate enough to find Etrailer who had what I needed. The order process was easy and the delivery was faster than I expected during the holiday season. The cylinders were identical to the originals so installation was a snap. Very pleased, Jim O. 4209


by: RJ08/17/2015

I called the manufacture about the lift arms I needed they wanted 10.00 more than the the ones I bought from E Trailer.I got tired of getting hit on the head .so I broke down and bought a set , my wife put them on on about 10 min. They were very helpful, So thanks again. 219922


by: peter r.06/01/2015

Easy install. Strong spring, will lift lid independantly as soon at latch is opened. Product it replaced lasted about 5 years to failure. Used as a re-placement for a Contico OEM on HUSKY brand box. Image on website is an accurate representation of shipped product. 199531


by: Ric03/15/2013

I appreciate eTrailer for taking care of me and having great service. I received the product as promised and installed them with great success with no issues. Thanks eTrailer, I would buy from you again and will recommend you anytime, Thanks again, Rick 71008

Thank you etrailer for providing accurate information on your website so as to assist with my purchase. My order arrived in a timely manner, was accurately pulled, arrived in good condition, and fits the tool box for which I applied the materials. 227938


by: Jim H.01/30/2015

the lift cylinders that you sent are 100% better than the ones that came on the box brand new. It took me about 5minutes to change out both. I am very satisfied with your product, and I am sure I will be buying from you again. Thanks/// 171896


by: Jeff * Texas04/17/2015

These struts were exactly what I needed to get my toolbox to open without a lot of heavy lifting of the lid. Everything works perfectly now. I couldn't find the struts anywhere until I can across you website. Thanks! 185980

by: Kevin M.04/09/2015

fit right in place of the old ones from another brand toolbox. 5 Lbs stiffer, they work great. Took 10 minutes to figure out how to change them, and about 2 minutes to do it. Never done it before. 184496


by: Brian R.03/04/2015

very simple to install the shocks. the shocks are a good quality and should last for years.the shocks work as intended to hold the tool box lids open instead of propping something at the edges. 176975
