Rear Deck Lid Hinge Straps $28.99




Rear Deck Lid Replacement Strap Kit: 


Replace your broken rear deck lid straps!

These kits allow you to replace the rear deck lid limit straps. The hinge assemblies have to be removed to install these straps. The original rivet/fastener will need to be drilled out and the new rivet and cable installed and swegged from the back side. The new rivets are 304 stainless steel.

 There are 2 variations of rear deck lid hinges. One variation is where the lower bracket is made of thicker steel and the other variation is where the lower bracket is the same thickness as the upper bracket and has welded in reinforcements. The thicker lower bracket requires a longer rivet. The thin style has brackets that are both equal in thickness so both rivets are the same in length. The pictures below show how to tell them apart. The thick style has the small opening. The thin style has the large opening.

Be sure to order the correct kit to fit your hinges! 


Stainless Steel Hinge Rivet


                Thick Lower                                             Thin Lower




304 Stainless steel

Sold in pairs. Includes the four rivets.


*Make sure you order the correct kit to match your hinges.


Tips on how to install them:

Put a center punch mark in the center of the factory rivet Start with a small drill bit like 1/8". Drill in about 1/4". Then go to a lager drill bit. Around .180" - .190". Do not go too large as you might drill into the hinge steel. Hammer out the rivet using a small drift.

Once all the old rivets have been removed install the new cable and new rivets. This is a two person job. One person has to hold the hinge while the other hammers on the rivet with the drift. Lay the hinge on the anvil of a work bench vice. Use a large drift and hammer. Go at a slight angle and walk around the edge of the rivet util it is well peened over.








I do not offer free shipping.

Because I use postal flat rate boxes for heavy orders there is no program that can add the proper amount of shipping to every order. So all shipping is added manually by myself after you place your order. That is explained here: Shipping added later explanation 

When you place an order the shipping amount will show $0.00. Soon after you place an order you will receive an email confirmation that shows the amount of shipping that was added to your order.




Shipping:    Shipping in the USA via a small postal flat rate box for $8.50

Final shipping cost is determined by weight of the item(s) and distance from Milwaukee, WI. Shipping prices quoted are for items shipped to the Midwest area in the USA. If you are ordering a single item or multiple items the total shipping price is determined after you place the order. I try to keep my shipping prices to a minimum and use Postal Flat Rate boxes whenever I can utilize them for an order.

Shipping to areas outside of the USA: Generally I ship postal air first class mail. Shipping varies depending on what country they are going to. It ranges from $18.25 to Canada to $24 or more to Australia etc.
