JR Products RV Door Parts - Gas Shock - 372-5150-60 Review


Hello everybody, this is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a look at this JR Products 15 inch long gas shock. Now this is a nice, quick and easy replacement for any worn or broken gas shock you may have. This will replace a gas shock on multiple applications, like an RV or trailer door, storage compartment doors, truck bed covers, or even fold down camper beds. It is designed with a nice high quality black nitride shaft and includes plastic ends with the locking clips to secure it to the mounting ball. Now the connection type on this as a 10 millimeter ball socket.

And this does install easily in minutes, there's no special tools required. Want to zoom in just to show you here's one of the ends on it, you can see it's a 10 millimeter ball socket. Now, when you do go actually on the, when you go to remove your old one, what you'll want to do as you'll see this clip on here and there's one on the other side. You'll get a small flat tip screwdriver and push it up underneath that clip and pry that clip up to unlock it. You don't have to pop the clip off, just pry it up enough to where it unlocks it.

And then you can remove the old shock from there. And then when you go to put the new one on just so same way go ahead and pry that clip up, put it over the ball, push it down, and then push the clip down to secure it. Very easy installation. Now when you do install this, you do want the inner rod portion facing down. And it is also recommended to replace these in pairs.

The extended length on this one we said is 15 inches and that's measured from the center of this small socket to the center of this one. So there's your 15 inch extended length. The compressed length, if we completely compressed, it would be 8.91 inches. And the output for some, this shock is 60 pounds. But that should do it for the review on this JR Products 15 inch long gas shock..
