Hatch Gas Shocks pulling out?


Recommended Posts

Ok, things are not going so well. Getting ready for the OT and went to clean out the rigging box and release well. Still waiting on the switch from Blue Seas. Opened the rigging box and found the end of the gas shock laying in the bottom with the screws pulled out at the hatch. This is the third time. Once MBC fixed it with larger screws, once the dealer with larger screws yet and once I fixed it by moving the bracket down 1/4 of an inch. Decided to let it go and went to the release well and couldn't open it. Pulled the hinges and the hatch to find the gas shock mounting pulled out of the hatch and jammed the latch. I am getting ready to thru bolt these things unless someone has a better idea. Any thoughts are appreciated.
