Product Description

Is the seat of your office chair or computer chair no longer staying at the height that you want? Does it keep dropping too low? Or do you simply want to replace the gas lift of your chair with a longer one? The good news is that you do not have to replace the entire chair if the gas lift has failed or if it is not suitable... just replace the gas lift for a fraction of the cost!

CHARG-e Gas Lifts are locking gas springs designed for variable seat height adjustment of swivel chairs, task chairs, executive chairs, operator chairs, computer chairs, draughtsman's chairs and swivel stools. The gas spring is a double cylinder system that consists of a pressure tube and a guiding tube. The tubes provide a smooth seat-height adjustment, they gently absorb the weight of the sitter, and they allow bending movements (for example when the load on the seat is not centred). The overall result is that you can work more comfortably.

This 9-inch black straight gas lift has these important measurements:
* Length of outer cylinder (body) = 235mm
* Diameter of outer cylinder = 50mm, narrowing to 40mm
* Diameter of inner cylinder = 28mm, narrowing to 26.3mm.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product 29 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase
[Bought from chellgrove] I needed a new gas lift for my office chair (Luxury Dark Brown Director Office Chair with Folding Backrest). It originally came with a 7" gas lift, which turned out to be a bit on the low side, so I always had it at the maximum height. This meant a lot of stress on the piston while reclining, and after a while it started to work loose, wobble, and then loose height while sitting. I ordered a 9" gas lift to replace it, and I'm very happy with the product I received. The fitting instructions were clear, though the old lift needed a good few whacks with a hammer to get it out, but it all worked fine out in the end. The new gas lift is a perfect fit, I've set it to extended about half way, and it feels pretty stable. Hopefully having a long gas lift set half way will last longer - than a shorter gas lift on maximum. Time will tell...

I was really impressed with this supplier. Their literature/instructions are concise but well put together. And if you were having further problems they had included a telephone number so you could speak to them.

By Henrik
I was sorry to realise that my gas lift was gone in the mail system so I only received an empty tube. However, It was replaced with no problems by a new sending and I now have received the gas lift. Thank you :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent (nearly)-instant repair 23 April 2012
Verified Purchase
My old chair had developed a defective gas strut and would gradually let down anyone who sat on it. This is an exact replacement for the old strut - fits perfectly and everything is now back to normal.

When checking your size, make sure you measure the full length of the body of the strut (the thick part) as this extends through the 5-leg chair base.

Be aware that it might need a bit of applied force to dismantle the old one. The instructions suggest removing the strut from the base by tapping with a soft mallet. You might find as I did that a firm blow or two with a club-hammer cushioned with a block of wood is needed (although this will probably depend on the weight of the person who has been using the chair). Similarly removing the chair seat from the top of the strut mught take a bit of tapping all round with a hammer both on the sides of the strut, and on the collar of the seat that fits around it.

Not a problem though. It's simple, straighforward, and takes very little time.

Quick delivery too - very satisfied.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great solution! 28 May 2012

I had an office chair for the computer at home which continually kept dropping its height whilst using it, really annoying. I had been looking to replace the chair but a decent chair is not cheap! I bought the 9" gas lift to replace the 7" so the starting height would be greater and it works very well. Easy to replace and fit the new gas lift, very satisfied with this product!

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what is says on the tin 17 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase
This was indeed a direct replacement for the gas lift in my office chair - but be under no illusions that replacing it is a simple operation. I'm fairly handy at DIY-type things and it took me about an our of bashing with a club-hammer before I was able to extract the old one. I ended-up having to unscrew the bracket from the chair. Just ask yourself if you need a new chair instead!

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressed! 4 Oct 2012
By Tony T
Verified Purchase
Ordered yesterday late morning, arrived this morning at 0845, fitted by 0900! What more can I say? Works perfectly (so far) as I'm writing this review whilst sat on it and not dropping to the floor!
The chair was perfect for our study needs and it seemed a pity to throw it out just because of the failed strut. So for less than a quarter of the price of a new chair and five minutes very simple DIY (just a small hammer)we have a perfectly working chair again!
Would definitely order from them again and will pass the knowledge to my friends.

Took about 5 minutes in all to remove old and fit new. Now I don't have to keep raising the seat up when it drops or sit on a stack of cushions.
