Rockler Lid-Stay Torsion Hinge Provides Constant Torque for Greater Lid Support
posted on April 1, 2009 by Woodworker's Journal
Rockler’s Lid-Stay Hinge Rockler’s Lid-Stay Hinge acts as both hinge and lid support, keeping chest covers from crashing down with constant torque.

Another use of nifty technology applied to woodworking is the Rockler Lid-Stay Torsion Hinge, which employs constant torque — the same thing that keeps a laptop computer open — to the lids on the boxes and chests you make. The Lid-Stay is used as both a hinge and a lid support, keeping lids of different sizes (the Lid-Stay comes in 30, 40 and 60 inch-pound ratings) open and not crashing down on fingers. As of 2009, individual Lid-Stay Torsion Hinges cost $19.99, while two-packs of the 40 or 60 inch-pound ratings sell for $35.99.

    I have a pine lid for a toy box that is 3/4 inch x 16 inch x 32 inch that calls for 2 torsion hinges and they seem really pricey. they cost more than the hole toy box cost me. I have ordered quite a bit of material from rockler and have been real pleased but really cannot reason spending this much on these hinges. do you have any suggestions. Thanks
