Telescopic Stay

Introducing the cam-stay, a user-friendly telescopic stay that unlocks a world of versatile positioning options. Designed for a multitude of applications where precise weight support is necessary at various angles, this solution offers unbeatable ease of use. It presents a cost-effective alternative to gas struts for situations requiring positional control, especially when dealing with lighter loads.

What does the telescopic multi-positional cam-stay do?

The cam-stay is a manually operated telescopic multi-positional stay designed to support up to 135kg. With fixed holding positions it provides quick and steady positioning for your project. 

It is a great, cost-effective alternative to a gas strut where positional control is required and the mass of the item being held is low. Ideally suited for a wide range of applications where a weight must be held or supported at various angles.

How does the telescopic multi-positional cam-stay work?

To achieve precise positioning, all you need to do is extend the arm of the cam-stay until it securely locks into the desired position. This ensures a stable and reliable hold, allowing you to trust in the performance of our product.

Closing the cam-stay differs slightly depending on the model you choose. For the basic models, simply fully extend the stay before smoothly returning it to the closed position. This ensures a secure closure and guarantees stability throughout your application.

On the other hand, if you opt for the reversible model, the process is even more convenient. Once you’ve extended the arm to your desired position, there’s no need for full extension before closing. Instead, simply extend the stay slightly out of its current holding position and confidently close it. This feature grants you flexibility while maintaining the same level of dependable performance.

Basic – To operate the basic stay, all need to slightly extend the arm from its closed state until it locates into the required holding position. To close the unit, fully extend the stay before returning it to the closed position. The basic type is available with 5 or 10 holding positions. 

Reversible – To operate the reversible stay, extend the arm from its closed position until it locates into the desired holding position. The reversible version can be closed between any holding positions, it does not need to be fully extended before closing. To close the stay, simply extend it slightly out of its current holding position and close. The Reversible type is available with 6 holding positions.
