Dan for the win! Does it have the torque to latch at the bottom? What about releasing the latch?

Working on it...
I'm working on a way for it to automatically release the lock ones you push the button to open the window. I'm also working on a way for it to automatically lock ones you close the window all the way.

I just decided to do this this morning so bare with me while I get all the small issues figured out.

As of right now, the linear actuator (the one that used to control my roof lights) can be controlled to open and close to any position. For some reason the preprogrammed settings are not working but that has been an issue from the start, need to look at better control units...

Sounds like a tone of torque. Probably strong enough to wheel a little with it from slamming around a bunch?

I initially bought this actuator to 'fold' up and down four 7" HIDs (which can be seen on my roof rack in my Avatar). As always, things change and we decided to take the lights off the rack and I've been looking for something to use the actuator for...

This actuator can move 100lbs and has a static capacity of 500lbs, so yea, no issues while wheeling.
