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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  • 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.

  • Lift Cylinder Recommendation For Truck Toolbox On 2007 GMC
  • The dimensions of the Replacement Lift Cylinder for UWS toolboxes, part # UWSLIFTCYLIND sound like they are the same as the lifts on your GM Cargo management system.

  • If you have a UWS toolbox then strut # UWSLIFTCYLIND is the correct one since it is the only model they have. This unit measures 10 inches from the center of the ball socket on one end to the center of the ball socket on the other end. The overall length is 11 inches when fully extended.

  • Will the UWS Toolbox Lift Cylinder Lift the Lid When the Handle is Pulled
  • The lift cylinders for the UWS toolboxes will lift the lid of a UWS toolbox, but you will need to assist the lift cylinder by lifting the toolbox lid a few inches before the lift cylinder opens the lid the rest of the way. It will not immediately begin to lift the lid once you pull the handle.
