Tesla Shelf Lift

Tesla trunk shelf lift retrofit for Model S

Unfortunately, Tesla supplies a trunk shelf without lift function with its Model S. This means that when opening the trunk, the shelf has to be folded up manually each time and then folded down again manually before closing it, otherwise the view through the rear window is impaired. Fortunately, there are enough third-party manufacturers that offer different constructions to install an automatic lift in the form of a thread or string.

This versions of a lift are also available in Europe:
