The Inter-Stop two-section gas spring lets users precisely position vehicle access doors and panels, providing safe and convenient to storage and service compartments.The gas springs divide the opening stroke into two distinct sections. The first extends the spring to a specific holding point. The second stroke automatically opens the door or lid to the end position, or lets an operator manually stop it in any position. Section lengths and holding points are available in a number of variations. Stabilus, 1201 Tulip Dr., Gastonia, NC 28052, (800) 247-2860,
