How to Reduce the Force on a T-Valve

Using an Allen Key, how to reduce the force on a gas spring equipped with a T-Valve

Do NOT use this method for gas springs equipped with a Schrader Valve. If you are unsure which valve you have, click here.

On this video we are using a 3mm Allen Key and a small hammer to gently tap on the key. As you can see the valve is not very deep inside and you should be able to use either sides of the Allen Key to reduce the force. If you do not have a 3mm allen key, a smaller one can also be used.

Each time you hear the gas escape, some force is reduced. 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.
