Product Information & Specifications

  • Lid Stay or Support for boxes, cedar chests, blanket chests, etc.
  • This lid support assists in the lifting of your lid and it will hold the lid in the "up" position.
  • PLEASE NOTE: this lid support does not "dampen" the closing action of the lid so it is not recommended for children's toy boxes.
  • Made from stainless steel and nylon with a stainless steel spring.
  • Available in 3 different mounting styles (all models mount on inside of box)
    • Right Side Mount (mounts on underside of lid and right side panel of box)
    • Left Side Mount (mounts on underside of lid and left side panel of box)
    • Back Wall Mount (mounts on underside of lid and back wall of box)

  • Click on PDF link below for product dimensions and exact installation locations. Dimensions are in millimeters.
  • Important information about the hinge location and back wall thickness of your box. For this lid support to work correctly, the back wall of your box must be 3/4" thick and the pivot point of your hinge (where the hinge pin is) must be located on the outside back wall of the box. See PDF link for more information. Normally, you would use a piano hinge or several butt hinges to hinge your lid.
  • The formula for the weight rating is: Lid Front to back dimension (in inches) times Lid Weight in pounds divided by 2 equals the lid "moment".
  • More than one lid support can be used for heavier lids, up to 3 supports per lid. Do not mix lid supports of different weight ratings when using more than support.
  • Do the calculation using the formula and choose the lid support that most closely matches the "moment" of your lid. Do not exceed the maximum rating value.
