Heavy DUTY deck lid Spring HELP!!!

I searched forum did not find anything, I purchased the heavy duty deck springs for my 05 coupe with a oem spoiler. I installed the heavy duty springs and put them in the most tension setting. But my wife and kids are still in danger of getting a finger, arm, leg, or head choped off!!! Anyone go a fix to this? Oh I ordered the spring set from a local honda dealer. Any ideas would help please, I dont want to be a single father and I still like my kids around

there are two settings for the springs low/high
try the original springs in "high"
or try your spoiler springs in "low"

well I was under mine and I changed the way the bars are crossed in the middle clip section. I feels a little better as far as staying up, I have no clue why are trunks are so so so heavy. Had my son hold and he was getting tired lol

how did you guys change it? i got my decklid spoiler installed by someone and they said i dont really need the new springs. but now, the trunk always falls down unless i push it up all the way. people who dont know this would just kind of flip the trunk lid up and think it will go up but it will slam back down.

i heard of people using vice grips instead of the honda tool.. which is easiest?

easiest is honda tool, but vice grips and muscles will work as perfect. i did mine by myself, always good to have another set of hands help hold the trunk up tho.

The honda tool is wayyyy easier to use than vise grips. They slide right in and out with the honda tool.

There's no doubt the Honda tool is the best way, but I was too cheap to pay $30 - $40 for what would likely be a one time use tool. Vise Grips work great if you know exactly how to do it. This old post and the link in it should explain.

Oh I agree it is fairly expensive for a one time use tool. Do what I did and just resell it for a small loss. The ease of use was worth losing a few bucks in my book.
