If you've recently purchased a tailgate Bicycle Rack you may wish to install our aftermarket 1130N uprated tailgate struts to cope with the extra load.
These tailgate struts look and feel just like the ones fit to your van from the factory, but with 1130N of resistance, these make light work of lifting a tailgate when fitted with a bicycle rack.
Fitting is a very straight forward procedure and no special tools are required.
Supplied as a pair, these tailgate struts will completely replace your factory fit ones. However, you may want to hold on to your originals if you ever decide to remove the bicycle rack.
We advise against using these struts when your bicycle rack is not fitted as the increased resistance of the struts means the tailgate opens with significant force. This results in the tailgate being much harder to close over the standard units.
