Taylor Made Products has introduced replacement gas shocks for hatches, doors and covers. Similar to the expanding rods used in the automotive industry, these replacement shocks have a gas cylinder and piston assembly that allows the rod to expand as doors or hatches open, and collapse as they close. The gas cylinders of shocks installed on new boats typically have a life of about five years. After that, there is no more "spring" left in the rod and boatowners are forced to manually lift and prop open covers. Taylor Made's new line of gas shocks are intended to replace the installed rods once the viability of the gas cylinders on the original shocks have expired.

Taylor Made's replacement shocks are available in standard black and stainless steel. The standard black shocks incorporate a tough annealed steel rod with a protective coating for added corrosion resistance. Ideal for a high-salinity marine environment, the stainless steel shocks are constructed from 316 stainless steel and have been specially treated to protect against rust and corrosion.

Taylor Made Products, a member of the Taylor Made Group, is one of the largest and most innovative suppliers of marine aftermarket products, including buoys, fenders, boat covers, bimini tops, dock products, flags, pennants and hardware.
