The Sugatsune Aileron Lid-Lift System combines a raft of cutting edge features into one simple, easily adjustable system. You get lift assistance when opening the lid, an adjustable lid stay that frees up your hands as you search for items in the chest, quiet soft-close action and 3-way adjustable concealed hinges. With the lid up and out of your way, you'll enjoy an unobstructed view and easy access to the contents of the chest. The lid stay attaches to the hinge arm for a clean look, and the soft-close damper is adjustable with a simple 5-way selector switch. If you have a chest, trunk or lidded bench, this system will help keep fingers out of harm's way.

Features:

  • Lift-assist function allows for easy opening of chest lids
  • Lid stay function keeps lid open so you can use both hands to retrieve the items you need
  • Soft-close function lowers lid gently to the closed position
  • Includes everything you need: concealed hinges, lid stay arm, mounting plates and screws
  • Closing speed of lid is adjustable

Note: See the ''Specifications'' section for a guide on selecting the proper lift tension.

Which lift tension should I choose?
To select the correct lift tension for your chest lid, calculate your ''Max. Door Moment'' using the formula and example below.

Max. Door Moment = Lid weight (in kg; be sure to include handle weight) x 9.80665 x Distance from hinge pivot to lid's center of gravity/balance point (in meters).

Example:

  • Lid weight plus handle weight = 4.5 kg (9.92 lbs)
  • Distance from hinge pivot to lid's center of gravity/balance point = 0.18m (~7'')
  • 4.5 x 9.80665 x 0.18 = 7.943, this is your ''Max. Door Moment''
  • Using the guide below, a Max. Door Moment of 7.943 requires one High-Tension lift

Selection Guide using Max. Door Moment (using 1 lift):

  • 4.0 to 6.0 — Medium Tension (Type M)
  • 6.0 to 8.0 — High Tension (Type H)
