Another homebuilt cause im a cheap ass lol I use this when i need to keep a lift gate open.and remove the strut to access for drilling, Sectioning and welding. I basicly took an old striker and welded two studs on it. one straight out and one angled , so that i had options depending on how the latch was placed on a gate. Thel lower part is an old latch with a stud also welded onto it. The stud is so i can slide it into my adjustable rod.. Which happens to be an OLD camera stand, i just removed the legs and other fittings. i picked up the camera stand for 2 dollars at a yard sale .
