Gas lift on your chair keep sinking? Read on to find out how to replace an office chair gas lift today.
Our gas lifts/gas struts come as a complete sealed unit and replace the old unit in total
At the base the gas lift fits into the centre hole of the 5 star base of the chair and wedges itself in place; there is no screw or clips. At the tip the gas lift fits into the centre hole of the lever mechanism which is bolted to the underside of the seat base.
How to remove a gas lift from office chair
Old office chair gas cylinder stuck?
Although only wedged in place the old gas lift can become quite stuck over time. Although the mechanism on the underside of the seat should lift off the gas lift relatively easily, they can get stuck with time.
If it is ‘stuck’ you will need to persevere as it will eventually ‘wedge’ free. Usually, it is freeing the 5 star base that causes most problems. Try using some lubricant such as WD40 or washing up liquid and then, from beneath, tap the underside of the old gas lift with a soft mallet (so as not to damage the 5 star base) until ‘pops out’.
How to fit your new office chair gas lift

Elev8 is a new range of sit to stand desks that allows individuals to electronically adjust their desk from a sit to stand position. The new office functionality has becoming increasing popular and is proving to be a fantastic benefit to offices worldwide.
The biggest reasons to look at Sit-Stand desk solutions:
Assisting an active lifestyle – bringing many health benefits
The flexibility of being able to work sitting or standing increases staff productivity
Major international research has produced evidence that sitting for more than 4 hours a day leads to:
Disruption in blood sugar levels
An Increase in Insulin
Increased Blood Pressure levels
Enzymes responsible for burning harmful blood fats shutting down
Leg muscles switching off
The result leading to an increased risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer, weight gain and back ache. Having the ability to alternate between sitting and standing during the working day can dramatically improve your health and wellbeing. * Data source: www.getbritainstanding.org
When it comes to buying office furniture online, we believe there isn’t really a ‘right’ time. But there are always those warning signs that come into play a little before hand. If you have noticed staff are losing energy / morale, or see a lack of energy from visitors when they walk through the door, chances are you need to look at overall office setting.
Sometimes this can be down just to the decor or needing a fresh lick of paint (perhaps a team project!) However from our own experience, we find it usually comes down to the office furniture, office space and planning. If you are looking at ways to maximise space and have a cramped office environment – give our Office Storage Solutions Guide a quick read
If you have the space, look to use high office cabinets and filing systems in one corner or section of a room. This will install a community approach to a staffing environment. Allowing for practiciality and also team building, removing that feel of isolation.
Consider each member of your team individually, particularly if you have a small team. E.g. If you have a sales team that are on the go or a web developer, will the desking set-up and office chair provided be best for their productivity? Ergonomic Sit to Stand Desking caters for long hours, but also allows staff to have true flexibility when it comes to standing or sitting and their posture. The right office desk set-up can increase staff moral, boost productivity and overall team happiness.
When it comes to office storage furniture, there are alot of options. Some may assist in opening an office space up, others may help space save. Whether you are looking to renovate a home office, or you’re looking to freshen up a working office, there are many options that can sometimes be forgotten about.
Many times an office refresh assists in boosting staff morale and productivity, as well as creating a feeling of real office ‘revival’.
To de-clutter your office and increase productivity there are ways of adding storage into any room of any size as we explain below. It is important to note that to de-clutter, you’re best to use what we call – ‘hidden’ filing systems. Using storage solutions such as lockable shelved cupboards can enhance the look of the room, whilst providing an organised solution to paper build up.
These are not only practical, but extremely convential and come in a range of sizes in height. The white office cupboards really add a very sharp clean contemporary feel to any office environment and create space. Whereas the wooden finishes such as maple and beech add a great twist to a classic contemporary finish. These are popular because they tend to work with a wider colour scheme and really add a vibrant warmth. We also have these available in steel metal which are again high quality and very durable.
Why we love them?
As well as their practicality, they tend to hide the filing rather than leave on display and are very spacious and lock also. So promote security, a clean aesthetic and nice finish.
Office Storage Furniture – Shelves and Combination Units
If you prefer to display office materials and work in a fast paced charismatic office, our office bookshelves are fantasic for the extra storage. They are slighly thinner in regards to depth allowing the to really work with the space. If you like the idea of displaying some materials and still having some office privacy check our our office combination units.
Why we love them?
They are great for adding charisma and professionalism to an office feel. These shelving units are high quality, practical and allow you to add warmth to an office design. We also have matching desks and pedestals to work with the final look.
Office Storage Furniture – Filing Cabinets and Space Saving Office Pedestals
Whether you purchase office pedestals to go underneath office desks (check our our workbundle desk and draws options) or you look towards having separate filing cabinets. They are both very useful when it comes to secure lockable storage. Space save with office pedestals – our ultimate space saving solution. Or dispay office cabinets on one side of the office to break up a desking space and promote their use for team operations to help with office productivity. Regardless, whether the file storage is under the desk or standalone, these can make a great impact to any space and really help organise an office.
Why we love them?
They are stylish and slick, durable and have a high quality finish. The locking mechanism assists with office security. Therefore making them incredibly great at space-saving and allowing you to create a true free-flow environment.
