We have a "Spacedeck" Swing Arm unit fitted for the TV.
The Gas Strut has failed and in checking the Spacedec Website it states that they do not keep/supply any spare parts.
Has anyone needed to replace same and can recommend a supplier?
Perth area would be handy.
Cheers
John

Hi John,
I was at our Sponsors, Sound in Motion today, Brian say's you can get it regassed cheeper than replacing it.
No idea who can do that over in WA, but try Google maybe?
Regards Peter.

Thanks Michael and Peter.
Osborne Park looks like the place to try as no real results from Yellow pages here apart from them.

My strut failed some years ago.
What I did was measure the length of ram exposed when TV at desired height, cut a piece of 12mm x 12mm alum channel to corresponding length, drop it over exposed ram and weight of TV holds it in place at desired height.
Packing up? lift TV, remove channel and fold away as usual.
Works for me.
Cheers,
Ken
