Really, only 3/4"
Posted November 5, 2013
I keep thinking that I can rig these to work with a thicker back panel. I tried multiple ways but still either not closing or not staying up. I'll keep trying because I bought two but I would definitely agree with everyone else in saying, if the back panel is more than 3/4" these will not work.

Bought this on recommended calculations for spring strength, and was uncertain it would work, but mounted it upside down to facilitate a flush mounted lid with hinges vertical between the surfaces and it works a treat. Weight size calculations were spot on and the lid stays just where its opened to and closes easily. Great product and good help from Rockler staff

These lid supports worked surprisingly well. The were easy to install and the lid stays put at any position. Be sure to order the correct weight size. I calculated per the on-line instructions then bought a left and right support each rated at about 1/2 the total calculated inch/lbs. Perfect! If your back wall is other than 3/4" thick, they WILL NOT WORK, on a 1" back wall, for example. I checked other brands and they all have the same limitation on back wall thickness. Rockler's more expensive than the others, but I got quick delivery and am totally satisfied with the product. Matching screws are included but are not included with some of the competitor's supports.
