Make Toy Boxes Safe for Kids! Now there is an easy to install shelf and lid support that adjusts to suit a wide variety of installation requirements. This easy to install support can be mounted in either a right or left hand configuration, so that just one lid support is suitable for virtually any conceivable woodworking project, and it handles lids or shelves up to 20 pounds in either a “lift-up” (toy box) or “drop-down” (writing desk) mode. Braking tension adjusts with a 4mm hex key. The stop can be set to either 75 or 90 degrees of travel. Mounting holes are compatible with the 32mm system. Installs with user supplied #6 screws. Made in Taiwan.

Comments about Shelf and Lid Support:
Used this product for the lid on a blanket storage box. It is reversible, but when used this way, one side needs to be offset to clear the bulk of the pivot mechanism. Also, the lower mounting brackets gave me trouble sticking up too far. Looking back on it, maybe I should have mounted them upside down.Also, no instructions included- I had to print them from the web site. All in all, they worked out OK.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Professional
As in other reviews I have read on this product I concur- although it is a nice design idea letting for multiple build layouts, the friction disc mechanisms are very poorly designed and/or constructed. By the time you tighten the mechanism enough to support the lid, the closing function is all but impossible to operate- and from personal experience this products specs should be altered, because one support does NOT hold 20 lbs.. I had a 17.5 lb. lid with two supports, and it still did not function. Fix the product and it would be the ultimate in lid supports, till then, unfortunately, they are junk.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I prefer these for my grandchildren's toybox lids. Adjusted for slow closing and not hurting little fingers. These went on toybox #6.
