Title: Activation component testing apparatus

Abstract

An activation component testing apparatus comprising an outer sleeve, an inner sleeve, a plunger, a number of bearings, and a compression spring. The outer sleeve forms an interior chamber having opposing first and second openings. The plunger, bearings, inner sleeve, and compression spring are disposed in the central cavity. The plunger includes a number of bearing recesses that engage the bearings such that the plunger is configured to transfer a compressive force applied to the activation component through the inner sleeve and compression spring to a load cell via the bearings when the plunger is in an extended position and urge the bearings out of engagement with the bearing recesses when the plunger is in a maximum force position such that the plunger cannot transfer additional compressive force to the load cell when the plunger is moved beyond the maximum force position.
