Lid supports
I was looking for an inexpensive way to support my hinged lids for the boxes I build. People don't want to pay what you think your work deserves. I was using chain & odd ball screws for my lids not to fall backwards. Came across the friction lid supports from Rockler at a price I could afford & one which I think my customers could also afford. Unfortunate for me I suffered a retina detachment & things have been kinda put on hold, so I really have not had a chance to use the lid supports. Many woodworkers use this type of support already, so I'm sure they will do me just fine. I give a 5 star, cause thats how good I think they are.

Straight Lid Supports
These worked out very well. With the help of a friend, the kiosks being built were laid on their back and propped up to provide the lid opening limit needed and then the supports attached. They provide a wide range of usable opening that accommodated the need for the lid to open past center so it could not slam closed.
Cheers, Petej...

I would have liked to have had instructions about spacing for the brackets on each end to the pivot point. It took me several hours of drawing diagrams and measuring to come up with some dimensions. Then I had to adjust them when I worked up a sample. Lots of time wasted, about a whole day. Finally I got it done and it works fine. With the instructions, I would have given it a rating of 5 stars.

Used two of these on a blanket chest and they worked fine for the intended purpose. Would not recommend using on a toy box or for that matter on any chest accessible to children. They're just not sturdy enough for that kind of application. Packaging did not include any dimensional information or installation guidance but information was available on line.

what weight will this stay support?
Kenneth J on Apr 27, 2018
hi there is this lid support adjustable? I am looking for something similar for a wall mounted drawing table.
jessyru on Apr 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This product is adjustable, but is intended to control the descent of a lid, rather than support a writing or drawing surface.

A similar item, which would be better suited to your planned use, is Rockler item number 32110 or 32128. This solid brass hardware would also be more durable.
I have a dresser door (not a lid) that needs held open and I need to know if this would work for that?
danlb on Sep 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I suppose it would work ok for that purpose. You have control over the amount of friction the support has by tightening the knob.
Will I be able to open a chest lid just past vertical when installed per instructions?
Michael S on Jul 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I could open my box using this hinge, just past 90 degrees. I created a painting box from cigar boxes. For my needs, when using the box on my lap, I still had to hike the front of the box up a bit to get it to a steeper angle for painting. I am tall. If some say 5'5" or under, the hinge would have been absolutely perfect.
My parts arrived and I am preparing installation. It seems to me that the pivot on the lid bracket should rotate easily. It does not. Do I need to work it a bit or lubricate it or does it remain fixed in a single position during use?
Michael S on Jul 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The pivot point on the lid will loosen with use.
Can you use this to limit how far a cabinet door opens?
Linda G on Aug 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: If you go with the directions this allows lid to open vertically but you can adjust support so lid doesn't open as far
what is the required depth for this device?
Pat M on Jul 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The exact depth required is dependent on where the side guide is mounted. The arm requires approximately 2 inches travel space below where the side guide is mounted. Hope this helps.
