Re: Gas struts for windscreens

Sv Garulfo


We got ours from alrose UK. We chose slightly different dimensions because they were off the shelf ones, thus better lead time and price. 

Happy with the results; hopefully they’ll last 10 years (wishful thinking).

product code : 08S18S0100024500
Description: GS8 18 P 100 (Stroke) 283 (Centre to Centre) V AS1900/AS1900 150N
Stainless Steel Polished Compression Gas Spring with Eye Joints

About £55 each

Hope that helps

Hi paul I bought mine from Defender Marine 
If you want to replace them because they’re stuck and closed soap them in a bottle of Coca-Cola for 24 hours then hold them and hit the moving in on top with a hammer and it should come free after a couple of hard blows

Hi all,


I would greatly appreciate if someone could tell me where in the USA I can order replacement gas struts for the Amel 54 windscreens. I was about to go with a company called Ace Controls but it turned out there is an 8 week lead time for the stainless version.
