Worth it

Bill, Smithville, MO Posted November 9, 2014
I built a rather large toy chest (34"l x 22"w x 27"h) in the shape of a barn. The gambrel roof style I chose presented several challenges not the least being how to provide an opening lid. I settled on a 3 piece roof with the center piece being fixed, a piano hinge for the normal opening "lid" side and the other side simply fastened in place on the inside. I built the roof using 1/2" pine material to keep the weight down. The "lid" weighed 4# and measured 15" x 34". I used the Soft Down Lid Support to dampen the downward movement. It works perfectly. Highly recommended if you follow the recommedations for size and weight.

Worked just the I wanted it.

Based on the specifications for this product, I bought two 2 of them for the toy box that I built for my great-grandson. I weighed the lid to make sure that I was getting the correct unit, but I only needed to install one support. It works well. As others have stated, the instructions that come with the support leave a bit to be desired...they are in metric and very small printing. I just converted all the dimensions to english. I never bothered to look on Rockler's site for their instructions so I don't know how well they are, but a dimension to the center of the mounting bracket would have been handy, along with the dimensions to the holes. Since I have a CAD program, I simply made my own template.
