I leave one star off, because I had to go digging around for the instructions, as they were not included. I found them on the sugatsune website after searching for the model number. The instructions are just a series of dimensional drawings telling you where to place the stay for various kinds of hinge arrangements. While minimalist, they are effective, and I installed the hinge properly with no trouble.

The stay itself is reasonably well made, and can be installed either left or right side. It can be used for swinging box lids (like a toybox or cedar chest) or for cabinet doors that swing up to open (and down to close). In both scenarios it provides soft-close as the lid or door swings down to its closed position. It also provides a "detent lock" in the open position.

The product description calls it a 90 degree hinge, but the instructions include measurements for 80, 90 or 100 degree operation.

I found even just one quite adequate for slam-control on a wooden cedar chest with a 17" lid (although it has a second conventional brass stay on the other side.). The directions say you should always put it in pairs, but I like the fact that the conventional stay is a firm "lock open", and does not let the box close until you bump the joint where it hinges. So, I'm keeping one of each. This stay provides the anti-slam dampening, and automatically locks when you open the lid. The other needs to be manually locked and unlocked, but provides rigid no-close locking.

For those looking for the directions:

The site is a tad flaky, but you can also find it on other sites if you web search for:

Tried these as a replacement for the cheap, defective Ferrari hinges that came with IKEA's horizontal cabinets. Instructions were a bit hard to decipher, but once I figured it out, they went in pretty slick. When using two on a heavier door, be extra careful with measurements. So far so good, but how they stand up to the wear and tear in a kitchen is yet to be seen.

Maybe others think you should normally have to go to a company's website or watch a youtube to install something simple like this, but I'm old-fashioned and think some clear instructions would be sufficient. Yes, we followed the instructions. After all this was the very last item in a full kitchen with cabinets we installed ourselves and including an outside venting range hood. We assumed that because an 8 inch door was listed on the weight chart that the arm would clear the bottom of a cabinet with an 8 inch door. We were wrong. Of course, the engineering plans for 6 types of door configurations without a clear simple drawing of what each one actually looked like didn't help. And the idea that measurements can be precise to one half a millimeter in wood is nuts. There is a reason Apple and Ikea do well. They are USER-FRIENDLY. I can't recommend this company until they figure out they should be concerned with their customers first. The product isn't the problem. The company's lack of concern for the end user is.

Installed in a heavy wooden toy box to keep the lid from smashing little fingers. Works exactly as it should. I installed two for safety sake. Took a little figuring out to install them in the right position. I initially installed them backwards and was very frustrated with the results. Then I carefully looked at the included diagram and the picture here on amazon and realized I needed to flip it. Works great!

As mentioned by others, this is a good product but installation is tricky. I had a not-so-regular chest door, but thought it corresponded to Fig 3 (inset Single Knuckle). After installing according to the given dimensions (yes, these do look weirdly precise, but I suspect they were translated from metric values, then translated back, instead of using the rounded values like 108/33/57/63/77mm) it opened too far. From that experience and its correction, I suggest trying the following.

Position the mounting plate where instructions suggest it should go, securing it with only the top screw (drill 3/32nd pilot hole). Place the main body and attached arm onto the mounting plate and test if the open angle is correct, move mounting plate slightly slightly if not. When correct (instructions suggest a 105 degree angle, drill pilots for the other 3 holes and secure the plate. Then, with the arm connected you can mark the position on the lid for the 'arm fixing plate', drill and screw. I was installing in LH mode, and instructions did not seem to say that you need to rotate the piece that slots into the 'arm fixing plate' by 180 degrees.

I hope this helps someone: it worked for me.

I built some mudroom cubbies with a lidded storage bench for my kids' shoes and of course the lid (like a toy box lid) would slam on little fingers. I tried to find a cheaper solution, but settled on this. I wasn't sure how to figure out the weight of my lid because it was already attached so I figured I'd start with one and buy another one if needed for the other side. I do need another one and I don't even think my lid is that heavy. It keeps the lid open and slowed it's fall slightly, but I wouldn't say it's a soft close just yet. I still haven't ordered another though, because I just think they are overpriced for what they are.
