Video Transcript for Review of UWS Truck Tool Box - Replacement Lift Cylinder - UWSLIFTCYLIND

Hello everybody. This is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today, we're gonna take a look at the replacement lift cylinder for the UWS toolboxes. Now, this is a heavy-duty gas cylinder, will serve as a replacement for your UWS toolbox lifts. This lift cylinder installs inside the toolbox to open the lid a full 90 degrees. As we mentioned, this does fit the UWS toolboxes that use the heavy-duty gas lifts.

Few dimensions on this, we're gonna give you the overall length from one end to the other. So on this one, we're gonna measure right at 11 inches. Now, the extended length, which will be measured from the center of this ball socket to the center of that ball socket is gonna be right at 10 inches. And if we would retract this, the length center to center is gonna be seven inches. Now, this lift could possibly work on other toolboxes by matching those listed dimensions to the dimensions of the cylinder that you are gonna be replacing.

And to install this cylinder, it does install or snap into a 10 millimeter size ball stud on each end. Weight capacity on this is 45 pounds and it is for a quantity of one lift cylinder. But that should do it for the review on the replacement lift cylinder for the UWS toolboxes..

Bought replacement lift cylinders for my 10+ year old UWS toolbox. Perfect fit and great quality! I work in construction so I open and close my toolbox many times daily.

Easy install!

I couldn’t find this part anywhere in the town I live in. Ordered it through etrailer and it was delivered quickly and it was what I needed




by:

The original cylinders in my Husky toolboxes I bought in 2003 were shot after about 6 years. Many times a friend of mine would hold the lid open for me and ask when I was going to replace the lift cylinders. While researching lift cylinders to help a forum member with an issue with their under bed storage compartment in their camping trailer, I came across these. Price was right, shipping was fast. It took about 10 minutes to swap them out and now my toolbox lid stays up on its own. I should have done this years ago.


Comments
Still holding the lid up after a year.

by:

Perfect fit and easy to install. All you need is flathead screwdriver to lift the locking ring, pop out both ends, and snap the new one back on. Takes less than 30 seconds.




by:

Its been a year - heavy use daily, 365 days a year - Holding up JUST FINE!!!

by:

Exact fit, easy install. If I knew replacing these cylinders was this easy and reasonably priced, I would have done it a year ago and saved myself from repeatedly getting clocked in the head by a falling toolbox lid.


Comments
Still working great, no issues at all. Thanks!

  • How to Install the Replacement Gas Lift Cylinder for UWS Toolboxes
    To remove the current gas strut on your UWS toolbox you will simply need to take a flathead screwdriver and pop the clip on either head. This will allow you to pull the strut right off. Once the strut is removed you just have to push the ends of the Replacement Lift Cylinder # UWSLIFTCYLIND onto the mounting points until they pop into place. I confirmed this with my contact at UWS.

  • How to Measure for Replacement Lift Cylinder on Tool Box
    The Replacement Lift Cylinder # UWSLIFTCYLIND referenced in your question measures 10 inches from ball socket center to ball socket center when it is compressed. You will want to measure your existing lift cylinder when it is compressed to see if it matches the dimension on this replacement unit. Also note that this particular cylinder has a 45 pound weight capacity and is designed for UWS toolboxes with heavy-duty, gas lifts. This is the only replacement toolbox lift cylinder we currently...

  • Replacement Shock Recommendation for UWS Tool Box
    Since you have a UWS tool box the only solution we have for a replacement shock/lift cylinder is the part # UWSLIFTCYLIND. We can't recommend a way to convert a DeeZee shock to fit a UWS tool box like you have.

  • What Tool Box Does Replacement Lift Cylinder # UWSLIFTCYLIND Fit
    Easiest way would be to start with the brand of tool box you have. If it's a UWS we have the part # UWSLIFTCYLIND which will fit it. But if it's a different brand we wouldn't be able to help.

  • Replacement 10-Inch Gas Strut for Lid of Husky Tool Box
    We offer a replacement heavy-duty gas strut with a 10-inch dimension between its ball/socket mounts, part # UWSLIFTCYLIND from UWS which is the item you referenced. This item has a weight capacity of 45-lbs. I could not find a cross reference for the part numbers you provided (thank you) but since the dimensions match up exactly, so long as your tool box lid does not weigh more than 45-lbs (unlikely since it is aluminum) you should be fine using this item in your Husky tool box.

  • What is the Length of UWS Replacement Toolbox Lift Cylinder # UWSLIFTCYLIND
    The UWS Replacement Toolbox Lift Cylinder # UWSLIFTCYLIND will fit all UWS brand tool boxes that use this type of heavy-duty gas lift. The length of this part, measured from the center of one ball socket to the other, is 10-inches just like your original part. The two ends of the cylinder have the same type of ball socket fitting, which is shown on the linked photo I prepared for you.

  • Compatibility of UWS Replacement Lift Cylinder # UWSLIFTCYLIND With Husky Truck Tool Box
    The UWS Replacement Lift Cylinder # UWSLIFTCYLIND is intended specifically for UWS tool boxes with heavy-duty gas lifts. It uses ball socket attachments at both ends as shown in the linked photo. I checked on the Stabilus struts and they appear to use the same type of ball socket but since dimensions were not available for me to compare to the UWS I cannot tell you for sure if the UWS part will work. Part # UWSLIFTCYLIND measures 10-inches from center of socket to center of socket.

  • Will the UWS Toolbox Lift Cylinder Lift the Lid When the Handle is Pulled
    The lift cylinders for the UWS toolboxes will lift the lid of a UWS toolbox, but you will need to assist the lift cylinder by lifting the toolbox lid a few inches before the lift cylinder opens the lid the rest of the way. It will not immediately begin to lift the lid once you pull the handle.

  • How Does UWS Replacement Lift Cylinder Install to Toolbox
    I contacted our representative and she informed me that the Replacement Lift Cylinder for UWS Toolboxes, part # UWSLIFTCYLIND, mounts to a ball stud on the toolbox. The replacement lift cylinder snaps or pops on to the ball stud and does not use a tab or clip. If you have a UWS Toolbox and need a replacement lift cylinder, it is recommended to use the UWS replacement parts. The other parts sound like different brand replacement parts.
