What is a Gas spring?
A Gas spring is a cylinder that contains a piston, piston rod, nitrogen and a seal with a small amount of oil to prevent gas from escaping. Lockable Gas Springs contain a valve or pin that keeps the spring in a certain position. The pressure can absorb a lot of force and this creates a springy effect in the Gas spring. There are two types of gas springs on the market. Gas spring and gas extension spring. A gas compression spring stretches and thus exerts pressure. This spring is therefore also widely used in the tailgate of cars. Without a Gas spring, a tailgate would be very difficult to open, let alone close again. A gas rack spring works in exactly the opposite way. It retracts and thus provides sufficient tractive force. You can attach this spring to an automatic closing door, for example.
Useful details of a Gas spring Trailer:
To pick the right replacement Gas spring Trailer, it is useful to find out the following data on your current Gas spring:

- Thread size: M8 or M10 thread at the end of the Gas spring
- Length / Stroke (mm) : The length of the Gas Spring without the threaded ends in millimetres
How to mount a Gas spring?
Mount the spring so that most of the time the thinner side faces down, this ensures that the seal stays better lubricated. This will also extend the life of your Gas spring. In addition, you should always mount a Gas spring in an extended position. Do not try to manually depress the Gas spring, as this increases the risk of the rod bending. Mount your Gas spring so that it is loaded lengthwise. In addition, we recommend mounting the spring with a ball joint at one end to partially absorb any incorrect load.
Gas spring service life
If you mount a Gas spring correctly, it can last for years. A normal Gas spring can be used in different temperatures without any problems, this can handle -10 to 50 degrees Celsius. However, if it exceeds 50 degrees Celsius, it can become dangerous. In addition, too high a temperature can be detrimental to the life of the spring. Unfortunately, it is also not possible to refill a Gas spring yourself, should it be empty. This is because it is very dangerous and should therefore never be opened.
