I'm trying to install a gas shock for my live well lid. I've been able to get it to work pretty good, but I want it to be able to open by itself, with out bending over to give it's starting boost. The turn latch would keep it closed when not in use. Has anyone tried this? I would think its only a mater of proper mounting. Two suppliers helped in picking the length and force of the shock, but they quit communicating with me about the mounting.
