Love it; its slightly bigger than one I bought from you about 5-6 yrs.ago but basically the same.I like the top end being attached to the SIDE of the top lid rather than the top of the lid itself.

Nice little lid supports for my hand tool box
I build a simpler version of the Fine Woodworking Essential tool chest and needed to keep the lid from flopping over. At first I only used a pair of Brusso hinges (which are great), but after I forgot to hold the lip at the top one time, I had to repair the lid and install a pair of these hinges. The lid stays in just about every position without falling down. They will not hold a heavy lid but mine is 5/16 cherry with 1/2 inch thick frame.

Very stiff upon receipt but works free with several extensions/contractions (maybe a little lubricant). Thereafter works great.

what are the overall dimensions?how thick is the lid support?
Mike C on Dec 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: On mine the legs are approximately 3" long including the hinge. The hinge is about 1" wide. The material is about 1/16 thick, and you'll need to allow 1/2" of space to allow for the offset and the hinge thickness. Double check the provided mounting dimensions before you drill any holes. The directions allow for the lid to go back around 180 degrees, so if want 95 to 100 degrees like I did you'll need different dimensions.
I have a paint box with a support hinge that allows me to raise the lid to 90 degrees. I would like to have a hinge that will allow me to open the box lid to 120 - 160 degrees. Will this hinge work? Thanks.
George on Aug 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I believe it will allow the lid to open further than 90 degrees and probably to 120 - 160 degrees. The hinge has two pivot points. Depending upon how close or how far from the lids hinge you make these pivot points, you dictate how much the lid will open. The further from the hinge, the less it can open. The closer to the hinge, the more it will open. The length of the hinge when extended and distance of the pivot points from the edge of the lid and box, will set the limits on the degrees open you can achieve.
I'm thinking about using these supports on 12" x 16" toy boxes. Lid weights will be 1 - 2 lbs. Will they keep the lids from slamming on a child's fingers?
Kevin H on Dec 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I think I would use the soft close hinge if it's for the lid not shutting so fast. I have the kind of lid support that you've mentioned, but I've use them on wooden boxes only. They worked good as for as opening easily and shutting easily.

Please help me. I made embellished this beautiful cigar box and I'm proud of it. The lid is too heavy and it tips over. I have bought two other types of lid support hinge but they did not work; either the hinge was too big or the lid is not wide enough, the arm bumps against the area where the screws are located. My box is 6 1/8 inch and lid width is 3/4 inch. It does have this lip that goes beyond the main box area, which is 1/2 inch. Will this hinge work on my box?
WhimsyCrafter on Dec 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hello.
I don't use chest hinge because they are too intrusive and interfere on small boxes.
On my jewelry and humidor boxes I use quadrant hinges. they are strong and nonintrusive.
How much weight can it support?
George T on Jan 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have used these to support the lids on several machinist tool chests. Those lids weigh about three pounds each.
I have 3/4"clearence in the lid as well as the inside top of the box. will this clear both in a fully closed position?
Barney B on Jan 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes. The hinge portion of the lid support is 1 inch wide.
