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

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

Bought replacement lift cylinders for my 10+ year old UWS toolbox. Perfect fit and great quality! I work in construction so I open and close my toolbox many times daily. After a year and hundreds of uses, cylinders still work like new! Expect to get another 10 years no problem. Will definitely buy from etrailer.com again! 244228

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

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

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

  • Availability of Replacement Lift Cylinder for UWS Single Lid Tool Box

  • How Does UWS Replacement Lift Cylinder Install to Toolbox
  • I contacted our representative at Thule and she informed me that the Replacement Lift Cylinder for UWS Toolboxes, part # UWSLIFTCYLIND, mounts to a ball stud on the toolbox. The replacement lift cylinder snaps or pops on to the ball stud and does not use a tab or clip. If you have a UWS Toolbox and need a replacement lift cylinder, it is recommended to use the UWS replacement parts. The other parts sound like different brand replacement parts.

  • Compatibility of UWS Replacement Lift Cylinder # UWSLIFTCYLIND With Husky Truck Tool Box
  • The UWS Replacement Lift Cylinder # UWSLIFTCYLIND is intended specifically for UWS tool boxes with heavy-duty gas lifts. It uses ball socket attachments at both ends as shown in the linked photo. I checked on the Stabilus struts and they appear to use the same type of ball socket but since dimensions were not available for me to compare to the UWS I cannot tell you for sure if the UWS part will work. Part # UWSLIFTCYLIND measures 10-inches from center of socket to center of socket.

  • Availability of Gas Strut Measuring 10-1/2 Inches Extended and 7-1/4 Inches Compressed
  • The Replacement Lift Cylinder, # UWSLIFTCYLIND, may work for you. This gas strut measures 10 inches from ball socket to ball socket and is 6-1/2 inch when compressed. I am not able to locate a part with the Lift-O-Mat number that you provided. If you would like to send me an email with the name of your cargo box, I will be happy to try and locate the exact replacement for you.

  • Will the UWS Toolbox Lift Cylinder Lift the Lid When the Handle is Pulled
