Hydraulic Liftgate Cylinders

Cylinder Barrel: The body of the cylinder that holds the internal components.

Piston: Located inside the cylinder, the piston moves back and forth, converting hydraulic pressure into mechanical force to assist in lifting.

Piston Rod: The piston rod extends from the piston, passes through the cylinder head, and attaches to the hatch or tailgate to provide lifting action.

Seals: High-quality seals are essential to prevent fluid leakage and maintain pressure within the cylinder.

End Caps: These are located at each end of the cylinder and are used to seal the cylinder.

Mounting Brackets: Used to securely fasten the cylinder to the hatch or tailgate of the vehicle and to the body of the vehicle.

Hydraulic Ports: Allow hydraulic fluid to flow in and out of the cylinder, which is critical to the operation of the cylinder.


The hatch tailgate hydraulic liftgate cylinders help to raise and lower the tailgate in a controlled manner. The hydraulics provide a smooth transition and reduce the force required to operate a heavy tailgate. This feature is especially beneficial for larger vehicles such as SUVs and trucks.

These hydraulic cylinders can operate within a specific pressure range without undue force or damage to the vehicle structure. The pressure range is carefully calibrated to the weight and size of the tailgate. Cylinders are usually made of high-grade materials that are characterized by strength, durability, corrosion resistance and abrasion resistance. This ensures long-lasting performance even under frequent use and varying weather conditions.


Enhanced Safety: By controlling the tailgate’s motion, these cylinders prevent it from slamming shut, reducing the risk of injury.

Improved Longevity of Vehicle Parts: The controlled movement minimizes wear and tear on the vehicle’s hinges and tailgate supports.

Compact Design: They fit seamlessly into the vehicle’s design without taking up excess space or altering the vehicle’s aesthetic.

Precision Control: Offer smooth and precise control over the tailgate’s movement, enhancing the overall functionality.


Personal Vehicles: Commonly used in SUVs and pickup trucks for easy access to the cargo area.

Commercial Vehicles: Essential in delivery trucks and vans where frequent access to the cargo space is required.

Utility and Emergency Vehicles: Utilized in vehicles that need quick and safe access to equipment stored in the rear.

Recreational Vehicles: Implemented in RVs and campers for easy access to storage spaces.
