The DART Automatic Lid Opener Kit upgrades D205-541 baskets by removing the prop arm and replacing it with a sturdy stainless steel gas spring. The gas spring mounts to the end of the basket and assists in the opening and closing of the lid as well as holding it in the open position. When in the closed position, the gas spring keeps the lid down. In contrast to a prop arm, the gas spring does not require the operator to manually release a lock in order to close the basket. *Includes all required hardware to upgrade an existing lid prop arm to a gas spring. Installs on D205-541-043/-044/-045/-046 Basket. Includes 2 gas springs to install on both ends of the basket. 1 kit modifies 1 basket.
- Assists with opening and closing
