It would be tough to use any mechanical solution on the engine lid. If you did, someone would have to grab the lid when you pulled the release, unless you have arms like a great ape The gas shocks will pop the lid off the latch so you can walk around and lift.
I replaced all my shocks from stuff in Pelicans's stock (I think it was the heavy-duty shock) 6 years ago and they are still working well.
