Stabilus gas springs allow easy and convenient opening and smooth, silent closing of the hood without effort. Awkward hood props and dirty hands will be a thing of the past.


A hood with gas spring assist can be opened with one hand. When open, the hood will stay securely and reliably in position and cannot slam shut, as used to be the case with improperly latched props. Due to its space-saving installation on the side, the engine compartment will remain easily accessible. Stabilus gas springs are easy to mount and absolutely maintenance-free.
