Customer Focus

Opening in 1990, Schutties Fasteners is a family business. Our growth is attributed to a commitment to good communication, outstanding product knowledge and great customer service.


A big part of our commitment to our customers is reliability. As a small family business it’s something we pride ourselves on and one that most of our competitors cannot match.


We associate ourselves with industry known and trusted brands such as Stabilus Gas Struts, Protex Over Center Fasteners & Australian made products where possible.

Gas Struts

Gas struts are also known as gas springs or gas filled struts.
Our Automotive struts include boot struts, bonnet struts and hatch struts.
The heavy duty gas struts can also be called gas shocks or simply a gas strut.


Great service!! Very friendly and fixed my problem so quickly!! I would highly recommend you. Thanks for the fabulous service.

Doug Power

Great work, extremely friendly company. Gave an honest quote and fitted 4 struts (small glass boot and larger boot) very efficiently and reliably. I wish I would have gone to them months ago if I’d known it was going to be such an easy, fuss-free outcome. Highly recommend them – *****5 stars

Shari4WD Mum

Your assistance in getting me those parts was excellent and the service you provided was unparalleled. I would definitely recommend you to anyone!

Shaun McCauley

Thanks for fixing the struts on our boot! We should have come to you guys earlier, we could have saved ourselves years of getting hit on the head. Best money we’ve spent in a long time. Thanks!

I’d like to send you a big thank you for your help in repairing the locks on my Trayon camper.

To say this has been a hassle to me is an understatement, after driving from locksmith to locksmith and spending a considerable amount of time I looked upon your website .

With a short conversation all my woes were solved and the offending item was on its way to me and considerably cheaper than a locksmith could repair the lock.

So may I say a big thank you, if you have any occasion that you need a referral I would be more than happy to be an advocate of your services and business.
