Thread: Canopy bounces when closing

    Canopy bounces when closing

    This is just a post for the archives as it is buried in my build thread. I had an issue with the canopy opening no problem but once it was closed about halfway it would start quickly bouncing. This isn't good for the cylinders, lines, pump or wind screen!

    Islandman gave me the solution - simply add a flow restrictor valve to the lines feeding the bottom of the cylinder. I had my doubts but once I had the valve plumbed in (the right way ) and adjusted the canopy opens and closes perfectly! A simple fix for a frustrating problem.

    For the archives, can you post a picture or a link to what you purchased? I'll need one as well.
    Thanks,

    I drove to my local Parker Store and got this: https://ph.parker.com/us/17593/en/in...valve-f-series
