Canopy gas cylinders

New to aircraft.

The gas cylinders on my aircraft 601XLB are listed at 40 lbs.

They hold the canopy up but if I step on the wing walk to get in the canopy falls.

Is that the best the cylinders should work? Seems poor to me.

Are they not working correctly?

Can or should I get higher pressures cylinders?

Thanks for your reply.

The Zodiac 601XL-B battery removale and replacemenmt

I am buying this aircraft from an estate.

The two ways I see to change out the battery is remove the horizontal stabilizer or get a very very small person to climb into the tailcone.

Is this correct?
