Finished in statuary bronze, these steel lid supports are used to prevent toy box or chest lids from slamming down.
Rated at 40 to 45 pound·inches each, they are available only as a pair – one left and one right. For a light lid, only one would be needed; for a heavy lid, both would be used.
To determine the pound·inches required, multiply half the distance from the front to the back of the lid by its weight. For example, a 20" lid weighing 8 lb requires 80 pound·inches of support, so you would use both hinges.
Strongly recommended for children's toy boxes, these supports should be used on boxes with solid plank lids. Requires #8 screws (not included).
