Opening your Classic Wet Well Mounted Pump Station hood just got easier with the Hood Lift Assist by Smith & Loveless. Specially designed for the insulated and non-insulated single piece S&L above grade pump station hood - the Hood Lift Assist kit can also be installed on Dakota, USEMCO and HFE hoods! The Hood Lift Assist Kit features two (2) Gas Shock Pivot Assemblies that extend the hood opening to an amazing 85 degrees* in most installations. Without this patented Gas Shock Pivot Assembly, you get only a 45 degree opening. * In a limited number of installations, the bracket will prevent the hood from opening the full 85 degrees.
