My 16 year old steel basement entry door uses two gas springs to hold it
Time has come to replace the springs as they no longer do the job
intended. My question is are gas springs a standardized product? Namely
is a 2300-120 from one supplier a match to a 2300-120 of another?
used to repair machines that used them.
theres a wide variety of standard sizes. you might try grainger for
replace both at once otherwise the varying strength can cause things
to cock and jam

But what about fittings? Doing some Google searches I found this:
"New! The GSNI Black Nitride Shaft Gas Spring. This gas spring combines
all the proven reliability you have come to Expect from an SPD Gas Spring
along with the added feature of a nitride shaft. The GSNI Gas Spring
incorporates a strong annealed steel rod with a Nitride coating for added
corrosion resistance - especially when used with the all composite PS130
end fitting. This gas spring is ideal choice where exceptional quality
combined with an over all black appearance are important for your
application. The GSNI series gas spring comes standard with the EFPS30B1
end fitting except for the GSNI-3100 series which come standard with the
PS100 end fitting"
I can't find any references to help me determine what I have.
Another gas spring related question. I removed one of the springs today
noting the end caps are threaded ball joint connectors.
The replacement specifications note the type of ends as "plastic socket"
As in ball joint socket or something else? Can I could reuse my existing
ball joints. If the sockets themselves are different what is the
likelihood I the threads would allow reusing the original ball joint ends?
