Connecting Parts

Connecting parts
Gas springs can only move weights safely if they are attached properly. We have a range of different connection and attachment parts available. The one you choose will depend on where you want to install your gas springs and their position. We provide the following fixing elements:


Eyes are the most commonly used connection parts. They are known for being extremely stable. They come in a range of sizes, thicknesses and diameters. This makes eyes extremely versatile.


Hinged joints are particularly useful if you have to attach a gas spring at an angle rather than directly between the two pivot points. Hinged joints compensate for the angle and let you install gas springs without having to tilt them.


Clevises are extremely stable fasteners and therefore commonly used when the gas springs are subjected to considerable force. However, they are also used is situations where there is limited space available to install gas springs.


Bearing shoes are often used to fit gas springs directly between the two pivot points when they are in line with each other. They are commonly used with eyes.


Brackets are ideal when attaching gas springs to pivot points which aren't in line with each other. They are perfect for compensating for the angle between them. This fitting can be used with any connector except eyes.


Fixing brackets are used to install gas springs on the face, i.e. not at an angle. They are commonly used with eyes.

A locking support is attached with an eye to the piston rod of a gas spring. When the gas spring is pushed our, the locking support folds out against the piston rod. This prevents the piston rod from being retracted, making your gas springs even safer.


The protective tube covers the piston rod, protecting it from damage and dirt.
