How to Reduce Side Release Valve on a Gas Spring

IGS Gas spring equipped with a Side Release Valve (SRV)

How to reduce the force on a gas spring equipped with a Side Release Valve.

On this video we are reducing the force of 2 small size 6 gas springs with a 100mm stroke. When used on larger gas springs, the force goes down in much smaller steps.

The tool used to actuate the grub screw is a standard 2mm Allen Key.

On small gas springs with a small gas chamber the force goes down quickly so you should go slowly and make as many trials as necessary. It took more than 5 minutes to reduce the force from exactly 150 newtons down to 108 newtons in each gas spring.

This is work in progress, we will update this video as soon as we can find better actors!
