    Please note - Our struts are gas loaded which is what gives the boot the ability to pop open on its own. This will cause increased stiffness upon closing the boot. This is natural and will ease off over time.

    During colder weather, the gas within the strut chamber may lose pressure causing the product to not perform to full operation.
