    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.

    About us

    About us

    Emerald Struts was founded in 2019 with a simple yet innovative mission: to revolutionise the way you open your car boot.
    We recognised the frustration many drivers face when dealing with cumbersome boot struts that require technical know-how or lengthy installations.

    Our solution? Automatic boot struts that are not only easy to install but also deliver unparalleled convenience.



    Emerald Struts are an aftermarket automotive accessory designed for the trunk or boot of a car. These struts are typically used to upgrade the functionality of a car's trunk, allowing it to open automatically with the press of a button or when activated by your OEM remote control.


    The primary function of automatic boot struts is to enable the trunk of the vehicle to open automatically. This is particularly useful when your hands are full, and you can't manually open the trunk.


    These struts are often designed to be easy to install, allowing car owners to retrofit their vehicles with this feature without extensive modifications. They require zero skills or experience and take less than 10 minutes. No drilling or cutting required. If you sell your car, you can remove these and sell them to a 3rd party. What's not to love about that?


    Emerald Struts are different to normal tailgate struts, they are spring loaded struts designed to open your boot from your key fob without lifting it manually.


    The struts internal force do not exceed the threshold of the brackets or boot lock mechanism. There is no evidence to suggest Emerald Struts can cause damage to the car or boot lock if installed correctly. We advise to check your brackets and bolts prior to installing, if they have become weak or perished over sometime, we advise to purchase replacements before installing our product.


    Due to the nature of the product being spring loaded, the struts are more powerful than OEM struts, we advise to check any boot, brackets, bolts and lock mechanism every 30 days to ensure there has not been any movement. We also advise to ensure that you clean them frequently and to ensure no dirt/rust build up occurs as this can affect the performance of your struts. We also advise to spray the stroke bar regularly with WD40 or any other similar lubricant to ensure they remain smooth as new.
