Please read before adjusting or mounting the gas struts.
Gas struts are filled with high pressure Nitrogen and under no circumstances should they be opened or subject to excessive heat.
- The internal pressure of a gas strut is very high and should be treated with caution.
- Using the Allen key provided undo the grub screw until gas can be heard escaping. Then re-tighten the grub screw.
- Only release the gas in one second bursts to avoid releasing too much gas.
- Repeat the process until the gas strut is behaving as desired.
- In the case of multiple gas struts adjust them in an alternating order to keep them equal.
- Fit the gas strut with the cylinder uppermost. The adjustment valve located at the uppermost end of the cylinder.
- Gas strut must be upright with the valve at the top and the rod pointing down during adjustment to avoid excessive loss of oil.
- A small mist of oil may be ejected from the valve during adjustment – this is normal.
- Avoid excessive force when adjusting the grub screw as this may damage the grub screw.
- Under no circumstances should the grub screw be removed
