Hood Lift Support by Stabilus®. 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.

In automotive applications, most gas springs are specially matched and selected for each vehicle model. The function of the gas spring and the comfort of the application are determined by many characteristics, which can be accurately defined prior to series introduction. Naturally, Stabilus application engineers are ready to support and consult, drawing on their many years of experience, their combined know-how, and customized samples. For gas springs to open an application easily and to close it safely, their extension force must be matched accurately. For example, if the force of the gas spring is too low, the hand force required by the user becomes uncomfortably high and may not hold the application in the open position. The extension force depends directly on the weight of the hood, the center of gravity points, as well as the link points of the gas spring.
