When you need to keep boxes open while you store or remove items, you need an effective solution that will keep the lid stable until you're ready to close it. The right part for the job is called a lid support, designed to install on the interior of the box. They're useful for almost any type of box, from large to small.

Lid supports are easy to install and inexpensive to buy in bulk, so people from professional contractors to homeowners can benefit from them. The curved design makes them suitable for shallow boxes and the brass make ensures that they'll last rust-free. Depending on the size of the lid, you may only need to install one right-hand 7-inch curved friction lid support. You can adjust the friction to better balance the lid's weight. Because these supports are handed, the right-hand 7-inch curved friction lid support must be placed on that side. If the lid is relatively heavy or large, you'll also need to install a left-hand lid support. While the maximum opening angle is usually 70 degrees, you can control this by where you place the supports. Philips flat head screws are used to fasten the support in place, and these can be found here as well to fully complete your order. You can also add left-hand lid supports just in case your lids turn out to be too heavy.

Lid supports can make a world of difference for the boxes you own or those you're building for new homes or properties. If you have any questions about our right-hand 7-inch curved friction lid support or would like to learn more about our selection of lid supports, please feel free to contact us for additional information.

How long does it take to get my hardware once it's been ordered?

I have a hinge that I am trying to replace but I need help identifying it. Can you help?

Yes! Please click here to visit our Hinge Finder page.

Some of your hinges are sold by the each and some sell by the pair. What is the difference?

When the unit of measure says “pair” that means two hinges. Usually you need one pair of hinges per door. When the unit of measure says “each” that means one hinge. You would usually order 2 “each” hinges per door.

I want to replace my hinges. How do I make sure the screw holes on the new hinge match the screw holes on the old hinge so I do not have to redrill the holes?

Unfortunately, hinge manufacturers have never standardized the location of their screw hole patterns. Every manufacturer puts their screw holes in a slightly different place. This means that when you replace hinges you will almost certainly have to do some filling and redrilling. The exception to this is Architectural door hinges which are built to a standardized template for each size hinge.
