Yes 3 our of 5
I have used these on five wooden toy boxes. First three worked fine. These last two are not. Which is a problem with kids and the lid slamming down on them or not. Spring in the two that don't work seems to be the issue. The weight of the tops are the same. May just add extra hinge and see if that works.

    Center console lid did not stay open on new couch. Cup holders did hold coffee cup because of handle. Installed this hinge in a few minutes and it works great. Now I can put things in the console and the lid stays open. Thinking of advising the store about this quick fix.

      works great.
      gave 4 stars only for the directions being confusing. used these to build 2 oak chests and they hold the heavy lids up no problem. all the bad reviewers must be attaching them wrong

        they work kinda work
        I ordered some great Rockwell hinges that can support open a good amount of weight to keep my sons toy box open while he plays but they didn't do the job I needed a little extra support to keep the lid open the lid is oak 4 feet by 2 feet by 3/4. I used 2 of these hinges I put 1 in each corner to help hold the lid up they worked out. Kind of a pain to figure out what way you want to hook them up but once you figure that out they work.

          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.

            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!

            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!

            not food at all
            The hinge sucks and wouldnt work at all. The hinge would bend and wouldnt let the lid open all the way or close

              Worked great for a small desk repair. This is very universal so it will work left, center or right side.
