After 10 years of service my UFS truck box lid fell from vertical open position and the corner hit my head so after bleeding stopped I realized the gas shocks had finally failed. These are exact replacements in fit and function so hopefully I’ll get 10 more years of service. Thanks for good service and product. 595673

The struts are exactly what I needed. The quality appears to be outstanding. I am excited about finding your site as I probably will be needing additional parts for my aging tool box .

  • 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. The problem may be how the lift cylinder attaches. The cargo box you have may be a different style or made by a different manufacturer.

  • Replacement Lift Cylinder for an Unknown Brand of Toolbox
    The only toolbox lift cylinder we have is # UWSLIFTCYLIND so you will need to go by the dimensions and how it mounts to determine if it will fit your toolbox.

The cylinder measures 7 inches in length when fully retracted, and 11 inches long when fully extended.

  • How to Install the Replacement Gas Lift Cylinder for UWS Toolboxes
    To remove the current gas strut on your UWS toolbox you will simply need to take a flathead screwdriver and pop the clip on either head. This will allow you to pull the strut right off.

  • Replacement 10-Inch Gas Strut for Lid of Husky Tool Box
    We offer a replacement heavy-duty gas strut with a 10-inch dimension between its ball/socket mounts, part # UWSLIFTCYLIND from UWS which is the item you referenced. This item has a weight capacity of 45-lbs. I could not find a cross reference for the part numbers you provided (thank you) but since the dimensions match up exactly, so long as your tool box lid does not weigh more than 45-lbs (unlikely since it is aluminum) you should be fine using this item in your Husky tool box.

  • How Does UWS Replacement Lift Cylinder Install to Toolbox
    I contacted our representative 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.

  • What Tool Box Does Replacement Lift Cylinder # UWSLIFTCYLIND Fit

  • How to Measure for Replacement Lift Cylinder on Tool Box
    The Replacement Lift Cylinder # UWSLIFTCYLIND referenced in your question measures 10 inches from ball socket center to ball socket center when it is compressed. You will want to measure your existing lift cylinder when it is compressed to see if it matches the dimension on this replacement unit.

  • 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.

  • Replacement Strut/Lift Cylinder for a UWS Toolbox

  • 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.

  • Replacement Struts for Payload Plus Truck Bed Toolbox
    I may have a solution for you, but since we do not carry the Payload Plus brand of truck mounted toolboxes, we won't have anything that will mount directly to the existing mounting hardware on your box. You can use the top bracket # UWS-TCA and bottom bracket # UWS-BCA to install new mounting points on your existing toolbox and then connect those to the # UWSLIFTCYLIND to give yourself gas powered struts for your toolbox. These struts have a compressed length of 7" and extended length...
