Stainless Steel Lid Support

$2340 Each
Mounting Location
Inch/Pound Rating

Fasteners Not Included


  • Lid stay or support for boxes, cedar chests, blanket chests, etc. This support assists in the lifting of your lid and it will hold the lid in the "up" position.
  • 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 three different mounting styles:
    • Left Side Mount - Mounts on the underside of lid and left side panel of the box
    • Right Side Mount - Mounts on the underside of the lid and the right side panel of the box
    • Back Wall Mount - Mounts on the underside of lid and the back wall of the box
  • Available in two different weight ratings. Use the formula information below to calculate your lid "moment":
    • 26 inch/pound (in/lb) maximum lid moment.
    • 34 inch/pound (in/lb) maximum lid moment
  • 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. Normally, you would use a piano hinge or several butt hinges to hinge your lid.
  • Weight Rating Formula: Lid front to back dimension (in inches) times Lid weight (in pounds) divided by 2 equals the lid "moment".
  • Use the weight rating formula to determine your lid's "moment" and choose the lid support that most closely matches. Do no exceed the maximum rating value
  • Up to three lid supports can be used per lid. Do not mix lid supports of different weight ratings when using more than one support.
  • Instructions are not included. Please print out the PDF file from Downloads so that when your supports are delivered you will have instructions.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

The delivery time depends on how far you live from our San Diego warehouse. Generally, your order will reach you in 1 to 5 business days. Shipments do not move on weekends and holidays.

Do you ship merchandise outside the United States?

At this time, we only ship to addresses in the continental United States, Alaska, and Hawaii. For APO/FPO/DPO and Canadian orders, please email with a list of the SKU numbers and quantities you would like to purchase, along with your complete ship to address. Once we receive this information we will email you a shipping quote. Please note: Canadian shipments have a $50.00 minimum order.

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.
