3 Questions asked about Bench Seat Hinge
Q Nicole Rayl • 05/07/2018, 12:51:38 PM My apologies for my ignorance on this. In trying to make a functional window seat, what additional hardware (besides screws) should we purchase along with your bench seat hinges? I assume we need an additional different type of hinge at the middle/back of the lid. Thanks so much!
A 05/07/2018, 2:03:25 PM Hi Nicole! The Bench Seat Hinge would generally be all you need to install as they are sold as a pair and function as both the hinge and support. As long as your bench lid is between 17 - 26 lbs, this should be able to work just fine.
Q Mike Aubuchon • 07/18/2018, 10:04:22 PM I have a bench that is mounted against the wall. And since this hinge moves forward about 4 inches when opening it appears to be the perfect choice. only problem is it states wait range is 17-26 pounds. My lid weighs 35 pounds. My question is can I still use this hinge and how will it affect operation? Or can I use an additional gas operated mechanisms with it?
A 07/19/2018, 10:40:01 AM Hi Mike! With a heavier lid than recommended it wouldn't be able to bring down the lid nicely. You could try using a pneumatic or gas strut, but with the pivot of the lid and how it moves forward 4 inches it may just be tricky for a mounting location on the strut.
