Friction Stop Gas Springs

Friction Stop Gas Springs Guden Friction Stop Gas Springs are a standard gas spring but with the addition of a friction nut mechanism around the rod where it enters the tube. This specialty attribute allows for the gas spring to be positioned and held at any point in the stroke cycle. Simply tighten down the friction nut mechanism to firmly grip the rod to activate this feature. The feature can also easily be deactivated by loosening so the gas spring returns to standard action.
