Do you have an gas lift stool that just isn't working correctly?

It may be going down by itself or it may be going up by itself. Don't worry you don't have a ghost problem and you wont need to call the ghost busters. It will more than likely be your gas strut needs replacing.

These bar stool gas struts are a class 4 gas strut. They are suited to a round chrome or stainless steel base with a 49mm hole. If you are wanting to replace your gas strut but don't know where to start don't worry we will give you easy  instructions to help you replace your gas strut and if along the way you get lost or confused you are able to give us a call and we will be more than happy to talk you through the process.


These are sold as complete units (as pictured) we WILL NOT sell just the gas cartridge, if the cartridge is what you need you will need to buy the complete unit and pull it apart yourself.

This is a heavy duty gas strut (class 4 meaning it will support up to 180kg)

Please note: Just because the strut will take a lot of weight the rest of the stool may not be able to.

Made in China

Suitable for a round chrome or stainless steel base with a 49mm hole.

Can be used in a commercial or residential use

To replace a broken gas strut in your bar stool follow the below steps. or go to:

1: Turn the stool on it side on a flat surface ( we recommend the floor).

2: You will see a clip on the bottom of the stool (metal black clip)

3: Remove the clip (please see photos) .

4: Once the clip has been removed the gas strut will pull apart into two pieces. One will be attached to the seat and the other to the round base.

5: Once the gas strut has been pulled apart you will need to remove the strut from the seat. While the stool is on the floor, using a pair of vice grips grip around the bottom of the gas strut  ( This will be the black skinny metal bit of the gas strut)

6: Twist the old gas strut out of the seat mechanism. You may need some leverage to help twist the strut out we use a metal pole and place it over the end of the vice grips. Depending on the age of the chair you may need to use some WD40 to help release some of the tension.

7: To remove the base from the gas strut. Place the base upside down (the gas strut facing the floor) on a hard surface, we use a bench that is the same height as a kitchen bench. We recommend using a 1-3/16 socket bit to help bang the old gas strut out. Place the socket on the gas strut end and hit the socket set with a hammer. If you find that it is hard to get out spray some WD40 into the gap where the strut and the base meet and let it sit for an hour or so and try banging it out again.

8: Once you have the old gas strut out place the new gas strut into the base.

9: Place the seat back onto the gas strut. You will need to sit on the seat to ensure that the seat locks into place. Once this is all done your bar stool is ready to use.

If you have any questions through this process you are more than welcome to contact us on (07) 5479 5502 and we will be more than happy to walk you through step by step to ensure you get it right the first time.

Works as expected

I needed a longer gas lift for my chair as I have a high desktop. This works a treat.

I swapped out the original lift and installed this one in about 30 minutes. It was a bit fiddly but I am not a great tradie.

Gas strut replacements

Order was received in an acceptable time considering the current climate.
Found the replacement gas struts very easy to fit and all work very well. If I had known that it was going to be this easy then I would have done it a long time ago.
