Hello,

I need to replace the hydraulic rod that is supposed to keep my main door open. Its at the bottom of the door. Does anyone know where to get it and what the part # is?

I have tried generic rods from the local stores, but the ends that attach to the ball nuts on this one are small / unique and that pressure is also relatively low, 10# I think. I have tried using the number on the rod, but I think the ends may be special / specific to this application. Thanks!

Call Challenger Door and they will send you one for about twenty bucks.

This one worked fine on mine. They are pretty standard, except for the force required. This is a 10lb one and it worked well on the door. You can get them higher force, but then the frame attachment points get stressed. Easy to install, but be careful when the clips release. The clips can fly pretty far.
