Replacement Trunk Lift Support Struts
Some people have complained that the Model 3 trunk is hard to close. I did some investigation and experimenting and found that the factory struts are 130 lbf and I decided that less-powerful lift support struts would help.
I initially spec'd out the identical struts with a lighter force, but custom orders were over $100 each! So I found some 100 lbf off-the-shelf struts that would fit for less than $13 each (at the time this was published).
The replacement struts are a bit smaller and have been working well for me for several months now. Check out the video below for a demonstration and buy a pair for yourself if you'd like to give them a try as well.
