Gas Stay Upgrade
Mounting your Roof Top Tent or Bikes to your Hard Lid?
With the additional weight, opening the lid will be difficult with the standard gas stays which are calibrated to provide an easy lift/close experience with no additional weight.
The Gas Stay Upgrade kit offers four various pressures suited to different weight ranges:
Please note these are only compatible with the Standard Load-Lid (not to suit Sports Bar)
Part#LLGS-UPGRADE-15KG - (0-15kg, 1 Bike) $165.00 + GST per pair
*This option is recommended for ladder rack, crossbars and/or bike carriers by themselves.
Part#LLGS-UPGRADE-30KG - (15-30kg, 2 Bikes) $175.00 + GST per pair
Part#LLGS-UPGRADE-45KG - (30-45kg, 3 Bikes) $185.00 + GST per pair
Part#LLGS-UPGRADE-70KG - (45-70kg, 4 Bikes or Roof Top Tent, includes upgraded mounting frame) $220.00 + GST
If you are retrofitting a 70kg rated Gas Stay Upgrade the kit comes with an upgraded mounting frame which is designed to support the additional weight and associated force. This is a DYI install, but will require the lid to be removed and re-fitted to install.
