Tension Gas Springs


Tension Gas Springs Also known as pull type and traction gas springs, these work opposite to extension gas springs. Similar to a screen door closer, they are used to assist in closing covers, gates, and doors. Tension springs can be configured to have ball socket end fittings with ball studs or eyelet type connections. We recommend the ball and socket connections for mounting as this allows for compensation for misalignment of the connection points. T
Tension springs do not have any control / dampening on retraction or extension speed.
