To mount the bracket onto the door you will need install two rivenuts. This tool will make your life easier: Front Runner Rivnut tool / M6/M8


Where has this been all my Defender Lyfe?

Does exactly as promised - fits existing skin, strong enough to hold the weight of door and spare wheel, improves opening range and utterly fool proof to install. Second one purchased immediately!

So good and an easy installation

Fitting took about 45 minutes and was really straightforward following the instructions. Great bit of kit, no door card cutting required and no more door shutting on me.

Would highly recommend, it is night and day in comparison to the original design

A must for Defender owners

Camping, shopping, throwing stuff in the back? You need one of these... period. I was sick of the stock mechanism never being able to hold the door open, and having to constantly prop the door open with my body to get access, especially when out on a track or even a slight hill when parked. The new gas strut is absolutely awesome, and saves untold amounts of hassle. At first I thought that the gas strut was a bit strong, however, soon realised that at extreme angles the door is still firmly held open. Conveniently, the door opens by itself now as well, and is great when you have your hands full. The guys at Expedition Centre installed this for me, and I highly recommend that if you're able, you do the same as the workmanship was great, but also saves you the trouble of purchasing the tools to install.

Good product, easy installation

Generally happy with this as a replacement for the OEM door mechanism. The mount has bent slightly with use, but this doesn't appear to affect operation. Came with good instructions, those unfamiliar with rivnuts may need to do a bit of youtube research
