locking gas spring

Locking gas springs allow the user to lock the unit in any position during operation of the gas spring. This is achieved by depressing a control pin, inside the shaft, that actuates a valve inside the assembly.  When the control pin is depressed, the valve inside of the tube allows gas on the flexible gas spring and oil in the rigid gas springs to flow through the valve. When the control pin is released, the valve closes and prevents the flow of gas or oil locking the shaft in place. Locking gas springs can be manufactured with several different functions that are explained below.
1.Rigid in tension: Rigid when rod is being pulled, high resistance to rod being pushed
2.Flexible: Good resistance to rod being pushed of pulled
3.Rigid in compression: High resistance to rod being pulled, rigid when rod is being pushed
