The special function OverloadProtection OP for the lockable gas struts HY3 and HY4 is used for the safe adjustment of the application in the extension direction without release. Thus, for example, massage couches, armrests and footrests can be adjusted comfortably and intuitively with one hand.
Upon exceeding a defined force in the extension direction, a valve opens and an adjustment in the extension direction is possible without using the release lever. Until this limited force is reached, the gas strut locks on extension as well as on compression load according to the selected types HY3 or HY4.
- Adjustment in extension direction without using the release lever
- Infinitely lockable
- Intuitive adjustment
- Long lifetime
- Installation independent on position in case of HY3
- Enables use with one hand
