Mainly seat suspensions, but other products also apply

If there is a Slide-function; make sure that the Slide stop-screw is all the way in (After a seat is mounted on top..).
Otherwise, there is a risk that the Swivel wire will get damaged!
Clean seat suspension base by spraying fresh water every other use, and after exposure to salt water. Leave to dry.
Don’t use high pressure cleaners, as this may remove needed, protective oil and grease on adequate places.
Make sure there is always a protective layer of marine grease on the shock absorber, the tension screw and and sliding slots. Not all parts on the shock absorber are stainless.

Every 50 boat hours;
Clean all surfaces with dilute detergent to remove sand and salt deposits. Rinse well with fresh water.
When cleaning, check so that enough protective oil and grease remains.
If the boat is used in very salty conditions, spray the shock absorber and exposed metal parts with Lanoguard Marine Spray, or equivalent.
Should spring tension/pre-load adjustment require a lot of force to turn after a while, apply generously with marine heavy duty grease along threads.

Check so that screws and nuts are properly tightened and the systems works well. Do a visual inspection of any cracks or deformation of the unit, especially around mounting points. If there is any major damage present, or nuts or bolts missing, do not use the unit. Contact your supplier.

Check for oil leakage from the shock absorber. A thin layer of the oil on the shaft is normal. If there is excessive oil or the oil has sprayed out, do not use the unit. Contact your supplier.
