By rear-mounting this lid support and placing it at least 6" from the edge of the lid, you'll get added safety and smooth lift-up action. For use on boxes and chests with 3/4" backs. Most lids require only one support, but two can increase the weight capacity. Zinc mounting brackets; black nylon body with steel springs. Installation instructions included.


Note: It is important to follow the mounting instructions closely. By varying the mounting location of the brackets, you change the weight capacity of the support. There are five different weight ranges. Use the formula in the instructions to determine the proper mounting location for your application.

Great product but did not come with any installation notes and I had to go to the website to get them. Nothing big just a small detail.

Too much force
The spring tension was too great even at the lowest setting. The lid of my 2 ft. X 3 ft. box would not stay closed and spring open with enough force that it would break your teeth if you were in the way.

This worked on my project, but not as well as I would have liked. It was difficult to position properly. It either wouldn't allow the lid to open fully, of close fully. Some fault could be attributed to the project's design.

Very cheap support. The entire tube that contains the spring is plastic. Not adjustable. I would not recommend purchasing.

Did not have good performance by this one, specs say it will handle 9#'s. I had trouble with under 9 pounds and the plastic was week. Ended up buying a steel version from Rockler to replace this one. Appears to be for very light loads period.

Building a toy box and need lift assists to avoid smashed fingers

They hold the blanket chest lid open 85-degrees. Very nice for maximum access to a chest close to the floor. On that blanket chest, two of the supports hold the chest lid at intermediate positions as well, so the lid does not slam.

Purchased 2 Easy-Lift Lid Supports for a lid that uses Soss concealed hinges. Looking at installation instructions, the mounting locations are for piano-style hinges that open from back - so picture shows lid is offset 3/4" behind back of box, but Soss hinge puts lid 3/4" in front of back of box. Can you tell me if this should work and whether mounting location changes? (If not sure what I mean, I can send a picture). Thanks

What's the length of the support?
Ed C on Jun 20, 2015
Is there a left hand and a right hand hinge? my lid is heavy and I need to know if the one shown "fits all" Do I need two hinges. lid weighs 45lb...what degree does it allow the lid to open.. ?? I prefer about 60 degrees..
johnnyflyrod on Feb 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You don't need a left hand and right hand hinge. They work for both. Placement of the hinge is critical so read the instructions concerning the weight of the top. I just completed two blanket chests using these as the supports. My top was 22 inches across the top but did not weigh anything near 45 pounds. Mine was more like 15 pounds. So, depending on the width of the door I'm not sure two of these will suffice. They will open about 75 degrees. You may want to add the gas spring lift to handle the weight. I have used these on other designs of blanket chests and they work fine. They handle more weight too.
