Stabilus Develops Tailgate Damper

GASTONIA, N.C. – Stabilus has introduced its EZDOWN drop-gate damper for controlled vehicle tailgate opening, particularly on pickups and vehicles used for brush and rescue purposes.

The drop-gate damper can be installed in minutes and offers hands-free, fluid opening of the vehicle’s tailgate along with a quick disconnect feature. The company says the damper provides precise control and a smoother opening of the tailgate rather than allowing it to quickly slam down. This control helps prevent personal injury and vehicle damage.

The EZDOWN installation kit is complete with all necessary parts and tools, including allen wrenches, cable bolt, tailgate mounting bolt and tee, and nut and cable foam. One kit is required per vehicle.

An original innovator of the first series of gas springs, Stabilus is a recognized leader and global supplier in the design and manufacturing of gas spring and damper technology.
