armature not attached

Reviewer: from CA US

I haven't used these in an application yet, but it should be noted that the armature (the actuating pin of the solenoid) is not retained within the solenoid body. In other words, if there is no power to the device, the pin can fall out the back. If you plan to mount the solenoid vertically (with the pointy end facing upwards), you will need to have something behind the solenoid to keep the armature from falling out.

Doesn't have spring return

Reviewer: from Near Sacramento, CA

The solenoid does not have a spring to return it to a retracted position when power to the solenoid is cut. Like the other reviewer mentioned, it does not have a back to keep the pin in when turned upside down (so that the pin pushes up when power is applied). I mounted the solenoid upside down (making sure the rod didn't fall out the back) and the solenoid would not always retract with the force of gravity after I triggered it. I was able to drive it with 5V and 9V and it has nice holding force.

Wimpy little solenoid

Reviewer: from Midwest USA

Very limited push power. Maybe 1/8 inch of stroke is usable for any kind of push. Will push very lightly on 2 D batts, stronger on a 9 volt batt and a bit more on a 12v SLA. Still wimply and no way to hold in the piston from falling out.
