About Tail Gate Struts
A tailgate damper is a pair of strong cords that hold the tailgate in place when the tailgate is lowered. The tail gate dampers have piston-like hinges that hold the lid on both sides. These hinges make the work of lifting the lid easier.
The hinges are made of either gas or fluid springs. The spring ought to have a perfect sized cylinder and piston. An accurate amount of gas pressure is crucial. The gas/liquid springs and the gas and/or liquid inside the cylinder should work very smoothly and slowly. The valves and the piston should also work effectively.
