LIFT-O-MAT Gas Spring with Telescope Tube

For Extra Opening Angle

During repair work, it is an advantage if the hood can be opened wider than usual. To achieve a larger opening angle, the pressure tube of this LIFT-O-MAT version is equipped with an additional plastic tube that can be extended like a telescope.


Stabilus offers the LIFT-O-MAT with telescope tube in versions with and without pressure tube lock. In engine hoods, the end position lock provides extra safety because it will hold the hood safely in position during work performed. However, no lock will be necessary if only a larger return stroke is required. If the telescope tube is unlocked, the flap can be opened by hand until the mechanism catches in the end position, where it will hold the lid safely open. For closing, the telescope tube must be unlocked again, after passing the return stroke, the hood can be closed safely and dampened.
