Entry door scissor replacement


Recommended Posts

Somewhere, on some forum there was at least one thread about replacing the entry door scissor hinge with a piston product.  I've searched several forums including this one and can't find it. Can anyone steer me to the thread or possibly a file on the subject?

Thanks,

Open the link below and it will have everything you need to know. I have done it to 2 different diplomats and works great.

Thanks a bunch. My only fear is getting it positioned correctly. I can picture a bunch of holes in the door and/or frame.

BTW, Lippert apparently is offering their friction door hinges for the aftermarket (I may have read that on this forum). Nothing much on their website about it. I’ve got a request in to them for more information.

I did this to my Camelot.  I was concerned about the placement of the ball joints so I got some Gorilla double stick tape and put them where I thought they should go and then fitted the ram, then changed the placement until everything lined up and the door opened and closed correctly.  Then screwed it all in place.  Very nice addition.
