Questions & Answers
In what kind of travel/extended environment does it take place?
Ten struts are totaling a length of 10 inches. The height of the 5 inch. There are 9 5/8 inches between the pivot point and the pivot point. There is a 3 inch travel for the struts. The height of the 5 inch. Therefore it has an expanded total length of 7 inches when collapsed. I hope this is helpful to you
Do European style hinges have to be used?
In my opinion, it doesn't matter what type of hinge is used. It's just a matter of ensuring the sizes and weights of the doors are appropriate for the struts.
I am not able to move mine. The problem appears to be a common one. If you were able to manually compress them without issue, how did it go?
They tend to be hard to compress for a good reason. In light of the tip's small size, it would be excessive to move them for 25 pounds. Nevertheless, mine work perfectly when they are applied at the same time as a door shuts.
Do these work with doors that are 6 inches tall? Could you please suggest a solution if not?
The size of the door is too big for it. This small door will not be able to extend to its full extent, or even be closed completely. The force exerted by these struts is too great for such a narrow A smaller size may be better. Additionally, the legs on the attachment may be bigger than there is space for them to fit.

In short, nbsp The struts continue to work well on my chicken coop windows as of 4/9/19
My home state is Minnesota, and there is quite a bit of cold weather for There is no problem with these struts, they work fine! I bought another set of storage benches so I can use them for other things. Check out the original review below to see how we felt about these little guys. My chicken coop has them propped open to allow the windows to open. They seemed not to be strong enough at first, but once installed, they work like a charm. In the instructions, it tells you roughly how to measure and install it, but first I had to convert from millimeters to inches, so it was not as precise as I would have liked. As struts hinge on balls and sockets, the end of each is a sort of socket that pairs with a ball piece to make a ball and socket joint. In order to join the ball/socket joint, there is a small metal clip on the end of the strut socket, which I initially believed had to be removed however, I later realized that the clip can simply be installed and they can snap together or apart. I've had these for several weeks now and they keep giving me no trouble. As long as I can afford to buy more if one of them blows, I will be fine.

The quality is excellent and it all works well! In camper trailers, these are used on upswing cupboards
I love it! To get the stuff in and out, one should be able to move their hands freely. As per the instructions, install the software exactly as it is described. The system worked perfectly, no adjustment was needed. This seems to be a good quality product. My boat's hatch needs some. I am going to purchase some. It could be used for a wide range of.

Pressure that is inconsistent
They were purchased for a project that involved the removal of a There are 24 pounds of weight on the lid. We decided to test the weight lifts for quality after reading previous reviews and learning of their inconsistent quality and resistance. We tested all four in a box as they were all in one. Efforts to lift a resistance It weighs two There are 8 pounds in the bag. I believe that Lift C is Resistance 13, corresponding to Lift C. It weighs two It turned out that none of them would be a good fit for this project. The 2 pounds will not be enough to keep it up, and the others would prevent it from closing. Our family DID keep them, however. It is invaluable to know the resistance of these pipes, and the price is something that cannot be denied. purchase these, be sure to test the weight and the lifting ability of the lifts prior to attaching them. Saving a ton of time and frustration is well worth it.

For RV cabinets with overhead storage, this product is perfect
I use it for overhead cupboard doors in my RV, though there are a few limitations. A bracket at the bottom is designed to mount on the cabinet side. My cupboard has a frame around the cabinet opening, so I had to mount the lower bracket on the edge of the frame, so I only used In addition, some of my cabinet openings are only eight inches In order to position it correctly, I had to modify the enclosed directions since they were made to fit openings of 10" or more. There is no way these lifters will work in openings less than 8" high, since the ball ends of the strut mounts must be 160 cm or more apart when the door is closed (the strut is 160 mm when it is As a result I am pleased with the outcome in terms of the strength of the opening force for my lightweight cupboard doors.

You can open the lid now! Everything seems to be going well so far
It is fairly easy to install, you simply mount the circular mount about 9 3/4" from the hinge on your cabinet, and the rectangular mount about 2" from the hinge on your As far as the weight they can lift goes, they are quite substantial. However, in reality, I can probably just use one on the lid of my larger storage bench. A 3/4 inch plywood and a 1 inch by 2 inch framework make this 20" x 42" landscape. It is definitely only necessary to have one bench for a smaller space. You can open the lid a few inches, then these things take it the rest of the way and keep it locked in place. In order to close, first you have to exert a bit of pressure. Then, once you are within a few inches of closing, the pressure is completely released and it will close automatically (not a soft close). The value for the cost is good and we will keep you posted if there are.

Instructions can be found on YouTube
My camper has some overhead cabinets I used for these. I was very satisfied with the way they worked and the ease with which they were installed. It seems like the instructions they provide are rather vague (I have never installed these before), but there are plenty of video tutorials on YouTube that walk you through the installation process if you want to be certain that you know what you are.

The fridge works for the AB
Struts would hold the lid of my ARB fridge up, so I decided to add them. I liked how it turned out. It took me several measurements to get the placement right, but once I did, the strut works like a charm! I feel it is strong with the provided hardware and adequate to bear As a rule, I would advise not attaching the metal mounting pivot points to the strut until the drill locations are identified and the strut can operate at its maximum range of movement. Once the pivot is inserted into the strut, you can pry it from the strut using some force and leverage (I used a flathead). In order to make sure the lid would close, I mounted it so that I could safely close it. Since mounting the pivot took some trial and error, I mounted the top pivot first, and estimated the position of the struts closed. I only needed 1 strut to secure the lid in place. I have more than enough to go around. The other 3 are to be saved.

I find the metal retaining clips to be one of the most inconvenient parts
The actual mesh is good and sturdy, and I'm sure it will work out once it is in place. At this point, it was quite difficult to reach. The metal clips that hold it on the ball are difficult to remove. Unfortunately, it's not a great you pry it off and only get one of the clips to eject, you have to fish, wiggle, and use brute force in order to get out the other end. And then you have to figure out how to get it back on. The only way I could have gotten to it, if it was going on the wall, or if it was something that had to be accessed only from one point, is through a wall of some sort. It was the best method to remove them with a #0 small flat head screw driver, and make sure to get both ends out at the same time. When it came to putting it back on, I had to use needle nose pliers to open it up, and squeeze it back It appears to be a plastic clip, installed in these clips squeeze the ball on all four sides when they are inserted. In this case, there is just a metal clip that holds from two sides, and managing this metal clip is a nuisance. The bracket has also distorted since the bracket that holds the end of the strut has become weaker as a result of the distorted strut. My chances are slim to none of buying the ball again because of the trouble of attaching the strut to it.
