Mario gas struts failing

It you’ve used Mario recently you may have noticed that the lid has developed a tendency to fall down. It seems that the gas struts are failing and need to be replaced. Be careful when using it so you don’t get bonked in the head. If you hold it all the way up for about 20 seconds it should start to stay up on its own.

We need to look at getting some replacements in the near future, and possibly re-positioning the mounting brackets so that they work a little better.
