Replacing Gas Springs On VacuSeal 4468H


Grumbler in Training
Does anyone have specific instructions on how to replace the gas springs on the VacuSeal 4468H? I've purchased new ones, but can not find instructions on what areas should be disassembled in order to have access to the existing springs and replace them. Thanks.

In the members list of the Grumble you can locate Larry Peterson. His website the Paper Framer has the manuals in PDF format. There was a link in his signature line but I am not sure if it is still live in the Grumble's new software.

Unfortunately, the manual for the 4468 doesn't have help on replacing the gas struts.

Where did you buy the gas springs? I need to replace mine but don't know where to buy it.

Sometimes you'll have local industrial stores that can help. The shock may not look the exact same or be the exact same size, but still be functional for your application. Gas shocks at my local industrial store has them for between $5-50 per shock, depending on size.

Hope this helps!
