Without gas strut locking pins, installation of gas strut is incomplete.
Further, these locking pins are designed to be fitted to the gas strut rod thread.
Gas Strut comes with an in-built spring function, gas strut locking pins automatically folded in behind at the end once the gas spring is extended.
Without manual depression, gas strut can’t return back to its original state.
This is a safety lock, therefore install it for the controlled lifting, adjusting and pushing rigid locking.
