Will this make the support soft close?

I have a very old toy box that MY father made when he was in high school. I want to refinish it as a toy box for my grandson. It measures 38"x 18" in, I believe., some sort of pine. The lid is also about 1" thick. Will these hinges make it a soft-close so that his fingers don't get crushed?
Asked by: Nana
It does not auto close. It stays in any position I pull it to. It does not close hard.

is there a stronger spring setting part number ?

i have it mounted correctly , it works but lid still needs a little more resistance to keep lid from closing. I have corner post / legs inside ... so I cannot attain that 1-1/4" inch distance from the centerline of the hinge for a right or left mount.
Asked by: eldon
no, look for another support these won't work if you have 1 1/4"

Far from an average DIY guy, tried 3 positions, after opening and closing rivet broke, replaced, then other hinge bent. Maybe these are good for a jewelry box but nothing over 2 pounds. Did I say JUNK!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replaced lid support This hinge fits perfectly to replace non working center mounted hinge on an existing chest. I followed a reviewer who suggested to read the directions before mounting these hinges. You can see they came out perfectly and held the lid in approximately 65 degree. I used a separate driver and drill with 3/32 bit and mounted this by myself without any assistance in about 20 minutes. I now use one left and one right hinge from previously two center hinges. Old screws are used. The instructions give the distance you need to drill the first hole on the chest side. After that, everything is very easy. Having a drill and a driver separately make this job a breeze. You drill the pilot hole using 3/32 drill and immediately attach the screw using the driver. Bottom line: Read and follow the instructions. You will be happy. Check out picture I uploaded.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from These do work well when done right My toy chest was on the line in size, so I bought two, installed one in the center, regretted it and installed two on the outside filling the holes I made in the center. I used the "center" technique for both of them, though which was better. It all worked quite well and I learned a few things that may be useful for you: 1. Use somebody, or some clamps to keep the angle set while you mark and install the pieces. The angle is the most crucial feature. The other measurements are secondary to this. In my case I couldn't measure the other dimensions well since my lid was not simple, but had some features that made it stick out around the body of the chest. 2. Make other measurements from the center of the hinge where it pivots, not the edge of the box. When you use the center technique, you don't need to worry about distance from the back, only distance from the top. As you can see from my picture I would be wrong to measure from the top edge to the bottom of the hinge, instead I also have to include how far the hinge is from top of the box. 3. With just the distance from the top and the angle set, position the top of the hinge in it's relaxed position as out of the packaging. Don't try to stretch or compress it into place. Keep the hinge as straight and square as reasonable. The rest of the measurements don't matter. I only rate this 4 stars since I think it could have been higher in quality, but I think the value is excellent. Good luck!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Barely makes a difference This hinge is pretty and looks like it might work, but finding weight specifications for it is impossible. I installed it on my chest and it made no perceptible difference.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from doesn't go 90 degrees The hinge seems to do what it advertises, but i needed it for a lid that, at a minimum, had to go 90 degrees, and this hinge wouldn't do it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great - If installed Properly After reading the wide spread of reviews - I decided to try these hinges; for I couldn't find something similar that was any better. After rereading the positive & negative reviews and studying the instructions on the back of the packet - I installed the hinges. They work great! Installation Tips: 1. You have to measure from the pivot point of your main hinge. If your hinge is on the outside of the box, you have to factor in the width of your material for your hinge placement. I made my toy box with a top face plate with the main hinge inside of the box. I simply measured from the pivot point as instructed. 2. I recommend that you secure the bottom of the hinge first. Then have someone hold the lid at the appropriate angle to mark the location and secure the top portion of the hinge in place. 3. My lid is made of 3/4 pine and is 20x39 inches. I purchased three hinges (left-right&center) after installing the left and right hinges and testing the safety of the lid closure - it worked so well that I returned the center hinge for it is not needed. Additionally I was concerned that the center hinge would be in the way. 4. Drill shallow pilot holes in the center of your hinge screw hole openings. Use a drill bit no more than half the diameter of the screws. The pilot hole should help the screws not drift out of position. 5. The screws provided are 3/4 inch in length; again my lid is 3/4 inch in depth. I slowly installed the screws about 2/3 the way - then backed the screws out and cut off the last 2-3 screw threads to ensure that the point of the screws did not puncture the top of the lid. I doubled checked everything and the hinges work extremely well. I hope that you find these tips helpful. Good Luck
