Gas strut for boat hatch in different shapes and sizes

Thanks to our wide range of gas springs, there is a suitable gas spring for every boat and for every hatch. The type of gas spring you need often depends on which hatch or box you want to use on the boat. The gas springs, also called extenders, can be placed on a deck hatch as well as on a cabin flap for easy opening and closing. The gas springs have a damping effect so that the hatches do not close in one fell swoop. This will minimize damages to your boat. Also, your fingers cannot get in between them and won’t be injured.
