Gas strut range extension from Blue Print

Towards the end of 2011, Blue Print introduced a short range of gas struts as a result of the feedback it received on high failure applications. Now, this range has been expanded to nearly 170 references which cover 600 popular UK and Ireland applications.

Gas struts are used for boot lids, glass openings and some vehicle’s bonnets. Gas struts often experience daily, repetitive use, over time they lose their effectiveness, meaning they are not able to hold the boot or bonnet fully open, finally resulting in total failure.

Check the struts on every vehicle every time and always replace them in pairs – they are an easy fix that creates additional revenue and satisfied customers.
