Ebay springs to raise hatch

Anybody try these yet?

Springs that push the hatch open when the latch is released.

ebay link

I'd try it but I have soft touch so I'm afraid it'll kill the expensive moving latch.

What a great find! I've always wished my hatch would open all the way like newer more modern cars, might have to try these, wish they had black springs, not crazy about that blue color.
