  • Damage caused by cycling a strut more than 5 times per minute.
  • Damage caused by over-extending or over-compressing a gas strut.
  • Gas struts must be replaced or installed as a pair to prevent voiding of the warranty - this is because the force between a pair of struts must be kept equal to prevent side loading and premature failure of the gas strut.
  • Gas struts may not perform to full operation during cold weather, this is due to temperature drops & loss of pressure within the strut chamber.  
  • Our automatic gas struts may cause the boot harder to close than factory fitted (OEM), this is due to more pressure inside the gas chambers.

    Return Procedure

    1. In the event of a product failing, your first course of action should be to contact Emerald Struts at
    2. Within 6 months of purchase date: Once the fault has been established and deemed impossible to be solved on site, Emerald Struts will arrange for collection of the item at cost to the customer. This will be refunded in full if the item is found to be faulty.

    Parts only supply:

    1. If a suspected faulty item can be repaired on site we may send out replacement parts under the terms of the warranty. To achieve this we must have photographic evidence of the faulty part / damaged area, clearly highlighting the defect or by having the part returned to us.
    2. If we are to send out a new part before we have either the faulty part or photographic evidence we will charge for the new part. When we receive the faulty part back we will test the part, if the part is found to be faulty due to a manufacturing defect we will then refund the purchase price and shipping of the replacement.
