Answer: 
On my box the lid only goes to a little bit over 65 to open, but I don't think the hinges will hold it open more than 65 degrees.

Answer: 
Yes, but if you're using one support it's best to install it in the center of the cover or lid. Bear in mind if the lid is not heavy enough it may not stay shut due to the tension of the spring wanting to open it.

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.

Answer: 
You may need to add an additional support hinge, depending on the weight of the lid. 1 - 6 lbs. needs 1 support, 6 - 15 lbs. needs 2 supports

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?

Answer: 
Hi Nana,
These are NOT a soft close hinge, they snap closed with considerable force.
Try pneumatic closures, you can find them on line.

Rated 2.4 out of 5 by 38 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 6, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Used once and broke Installed on my daughters toy box I was building, went to open and river broke. Terrible design. July 10, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst hinges ever I've replaced hinges before with no problem but these aren't working at all. Previous reviews recommend following the directions completely but the directions are so small I needed a magnifying glass and so confusing they were impossible to follow. I installed them to the best of my ability and the only support they provide is when the back of the hinge meets the back of the chest lid. Then the lid will stay up until you bump it. There is no soft close, the lid just crashes down. Don't waste your money. May 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Antique Brass Universal Lid Support Hinge I have used these commercially for over 25 years; although there have been some design changes in the past, I have found no problem in using them at all. If installed properly(left, right, and center) they will hold a large lid at a 85 degree angle without any problems and closes the units just fine. Not sure about the 90 degree issue, but 75 degree works for me in most applications. For a larger opening, I would use a torsion hinge, but that is about six times the price. To me, form, function, and price... all around its just great! August 14, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Limited Usefullness I built a birch 3/4" plywood toy chest with double lids measuring about 12 x 24 and each weighing about 3-4 lbs.. I installed a support on a lid in the center according to instructions. It prevented the lid from free-falling alright, but when I pushed it closed it wouldn't stay closed, lifting about an inch or so. That's because the weight of the lid was not sufficient to overcome the tension of the spring pushing against the cam section that's screwed to the lid. Never had this problem with earlier supports of this design. Also, judging from how the rivets were attached at the pivots, they're likely to come out after extended usage. But they weren't throwaways after all. I have a large old wooden toy chest, 20 x 35, with a single lid. I attached a support in the center and the lid fell shut because of its weight, but when I moved it to the side and installed the other support the lid stayed in any open position and shut completely - works fine. So.. you have to judge the weight of the lid you're attaching it to for it to work properly. Given the tension of the spring, the manufacturer should specify min/max lid weights for proper operation with one support in the center and two supports at the sides. February 15, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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! January 27, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't Waste Your Time! I bought this to convert my old Hope chest into a Toy chest for my daughter and I am highly disappointed. The instructions are confusing and make this more complicated then it needs to be. Then, once I installed it, it does not provide a soft close that I wanted to protect my daughters little fingers from getting pinched nor does it provide lid support to keep the lid open when you are getting something out of it. Plus, who wants to only be able to open a chest 65 degrees? Most people would expect at least 90 degrees to get into a chest on the floor. Its just normal body mechanics. Taking these hinges back and doing some research to find a better hinge. May 24, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by junk Don't waste your money or time. I put 3 of these on 15lb. lid and wouldn't hold open or even slow down closing. Guide calls for 3 supports on a lid 15-26 lbs. since this was the low end of the scale I thought it would support easily. Set measurements precisely as to instruction from the center of the hinges failed miserably. October 13, 2015
