Smart Door – Door Hold Open System for the Jeep JK
Why the Smart Door? The Doors are Heavy & Won’t Stay Open…
There are several reasons why the Smart Door was created. The new Jeep® Wrangler JK comes standard with power locks and windows, making the doors extremely heavy like a regular car door. The traditional fabric factory door straps no longer serve a purpose or a function, other than housing the electrical connections. The new Jeep Wrangler JK needed a new part designed that would hold the door open and also keep it from slamming shut, but still allow the doors to be easily removed. Star Fabricating took on this complicated challenge, spending over 2 years of building and testing prototypes, learning exactly what the part needed to become. Star Fabricating looked at the problem as if we were the original vehicle manufacture. The parts needed to have the same look and integrity as if it came standard on the vehicle. After several prototypes and literally hundreds of hours, Star Fabricating found that the part needed to be installed inside the door as an internal working part, and not installed externally. This eliminates all pinch points and the possibility for injury. They also knew that ONE part was needed for all four doors. Using Wave Spring Technology, Star was able to reduce the overall size of the part, making it possible to function properly inside the door. With a strong internal steel skeleton, their Thermoplastic Arm has 2 detent stopping positions, along with an innovative design that will allow the part to be easily installed without having to remove the doors. This also allows the door to open an additional 2 inches, making your entry and exit much easier. Simply remove 2 fasteners and your doors come off. Star’s Patent Pending design allows for no comparison…there is only one Smart Door.
