How to Adjust the Lift Supports Mounting Position?

When installing the lift struts on an excellent finished surface and wanting it to slowly open, try to move it and find where it will work best. When you adjust the Top mounting point(B), you should simultaneously adjust the bottom mounting point(A).
If you feel powerful, move the upper mounting point 0.8 inches towards the hinge on the lid (0.8 inches once).
If you feel weak, move the upper mounting point 0.8 inches towards the opposite of the hinge on the lid (0.8 inches once).

  1. Michael P.

    I needed something to hold a door in my camper on which I have my TV mounted. At midpoint, the door weighed about 12 lbs. These struts hold the door well; they arrived on time; were a breeze to install (about 15 minutes); appear well made and came with strong hardware. (I had just returned another set of struts of the same rating which wouldn’t hold and with hardware that twisted when I tried to install them). So far, I am well pleased. We’ll see how they they hold up over time.

    to hold a door in my camper on which I have my TV mounted.

  2. Joe Meyer

    Direct replacement for OEM, half the cost!

  3. Sergio La Torre

    100% direct replacement for the Stabilus Lift-o-mat, You can even use the old Stabilus Lift-o-mat hardware. I am happy I saved the money instead of spending more for the Stabilus!

  4. periwinkle103

    works great. it comes with screws for wood cabinet only. Had to get some screws for our aluminium cabinet

  5. B and B Trading

    Just as advertised. Would buy again.

  6. Mike

    I use these to hold the cabinet doors open on my cargo trailer. They work well. One per door is strong enough.

    work well at a great price

  7. KBP I

    These struts work as described. Well priced. I used them to support a lid on my grandchild’s toy box that I built. Still working well after 6 months.

  8. Emily

    work for i needed

  9. Tamir Al Maskari

    The made opening and closing the hatches a pleasure

  10. Nick

    These things work great: used in a lift-up cabinet.

    Be advised that they are not soft-close (nor are they advertised as such).

  11. Tran

    Used on kitchen cabinets. Quick installation. Pay attention to the N/lbs required for your needs. Easy to make a mistake and order ones too strong or weak for your needs.

  12. raul trujillo

    Good product and good price I will recomemded.

  13. Cesar

    I use this but is to short if you need more long don’t buy it . But in general is good item for the price

  14. Mark Palcsey

    The product worked as expected.

  15. Gregory

    Solid, well made, fast shipping

  16. M. Evans

    Easy to install. Working well.

  17. Tac EMS

    seems to look and work nice , only 4 stars because one came smashed ( most likely it was damaged in shipping) so no fault of seller, but a bit of a bummer. the other one works fine and will be placed on my RV battery box lid.

  18. O’Neill Bryan

    Seems ok

  19. LB

    We only needed one, but had to order the set of four. Having said that, I love the ease of installation and how perfectly it works on my corner cupboard as I can now pull my heavy Kitchenaid mixer our very easily. They are very well made and easy to install.

  20. John

    Perfectly fine strut, just doesn’t work for what I needed it for

  21. prem mirissage

    the Gas Struts are so powerful i was using only one per the overhead cupboard doors. real good quality. easy instructions. highly recommended for DIY projects or any project need short Gas struts.

    quality 100N 10 inchGas Struts

  22. Eldora Russ

    Works great

  23. Drew Kellum

    Except for being Chinese English paperwork it works as intended.

  24. Johneliot

    The cabinet over the sink did not raise parallel to the roof and this caused me to smack my head multiple times. These were perfect to raise the door so that I no longer hit my head. I had to reposition the blocks for the bottom of the piston, but it was very simple. The job probably took 1 1/2 hours to complete.

  25. Ray

    This is the first time that I am using has struts. When I first received the struts, I can barely able to push down on the struts to closed position with my hands. Fortunately, I found using my hands to open/close struts are not a good test.

    I used them for:
    1) I mounted these gas struts on a bench seat with underneath storage. The seat weight about 20 lb and one strut was sufficient to keep bench seat open.
    2) I also mounted one of the struct on overhead storage been door that open upward. The storage bin door is made of solid wood (24″x 13″ x 0.5″). The door opens from vertical upward to ceiling. One struct was sufficient to keep cabinet in place. I may mount second one in the future on the other side of door to keep the door from wobbling.

    Overall, very good material and I expect these structs will last some time.

  26. NELSON

    Great product really easy to install!

  27. LS


  28. Bart Lindenschmidt

    Used these for overhead RV storage compartments. Easy to install, perfect functionality, great price.

  29. Dcressall

    I purchased these for a chest I was building. I went with their pound rating and wish I went with a higher pound rating. These did the job but just barely. I’m afraid over time I will be replacing these.

  30. Brian C.

    Good value for the money. Make sure you differentiate from the soft close damper. I actually wanted the soft close lid dampers, accidentally ordered these. They are a lid-stay, hold the lid open, you have to push the lid down. They worked in place of them, a little more difficult to install due to tolerances. Quality product though.

  31. T. Bier

    The struts worked as designed on a 3/4″ plywood 20″ x 36″ heavy lid. I should have bought longer struts so the lid could be supported further away from the hinged edge, but the struts help to keep it from slamming shut. Packaging was awesome. Directions were good, too. Great price!

  32. JMT

    I bought these to install on some bench style cabinet lids made of 3/4″ plywood. They’re made well and fairly easy to install. They provide the perfect amount support to keep the lids shut.

  33. Jaji

    These are easy to install. No problem holding a pretty heavy wood lid for a box (lid is 2*3 inches, 3/4 thick).

  34. JTP

    I used these for a bench seat and was very happy with the results. Good quality.

  35. ahaakonson2012

    I put these in to keep the overhead cabinets in my van open while inside. They do that perfectly and have a wonderful bonus of keeping them closed while in motion. I haven’t found the need to add additional locks, though the cabinets are upward-swinging and along the passenger wall–a location that would normally be subject to the inertia of a sharp turn, spilling out all contents.
    Would buy again!!

  36. Ashleigh Miller

    Excellent product and amazing seller communication. Would buy again!

  37. Ed R

    Work for IKEA replacement but must change mounting hardware.
    No big deal.

  38. D


  39. Blue Ridge Guy

    At first glance, these struts look a little wimpy, but they do the job. Directions are a little unclear, but don’t prevent your installation from working well. You’ll most likely will have to fine tune the dimensions in their instructions to meet your specific installation. Would buy again.

  40. Juan Fernandez

    Takes a little bit of time to install them depending on the dimensions of your lids or enclosure, but after you figure it out is very easy

  41. Ivan V.

    Very good product and easy to install

  42. Becky

    Purchased these for a custom bed storage I had made and these worked great and are as sturdy as any others I have ever used

  43. Jennifer

    It was hard to do but after searching for video on how to install this it seemed a bit easier.

  44. Cinz

    Took awhile to put it in place. Works well.

  45. Gary Wheeler

    We put these in our camper for upper cupboard doors. They work great. Took a little work to install properly but they’ve been in place at least 6 most with no problems.

  46. Jody Wilson

    Decent for the price. Will buy again if needed

  47. Mel

    Would have been helpful with some tips on how to set it up for your project.
    Other than that shipped quickly and worked great for the toy chest I built for my Grandson

  48. Josefa I rojas

    Buen producto

  49. Leslie

    Perfect for our homemade trailer cabinets. I wanted the doors to swing up and stay open, these do the trick. Installation wasn’t to tricky just a little figuring to find the right fit and location to mount them. We have been using the first set for a few months now and all have functioned well. I have purchased another set for the next set of installs.

  50. Steve

    Worked great for a project to install on custom ice-chest lid….great price… hard to find any tutorials on installing gas struts for small projects… but managed ok..

  51. Paul

    Very good for the price. My only problem is I think the screws are too small, but that seems to be the norm when you order something. I used beefier screws.

  52. Jimmy

    Two Work great on venting greenhouse (40 lb) roof

  53. Mr p

    Good product for the price

  54. M. Tawil

    I have done side by side comparison with similar much more expensive products. These work just as well, last longer and fit the existing ball sockets of the more expensive product.

  55. KCMO

    Was not sure if it’s going to work for what i intented or not but as you can see it worked and keeps my storage lid in place

    Apexstone 100 N silver gas springs have Good value for the money

  56. Dennis Littlefield

    They were fine. Just a little cheap construction.

  57. SuePete

    see headline ! Installed these on my neighbors fifth wheel upper cabinets.they worked well, small doors,

  58. SavvyShopper

    I used this on my chicken coop egg box lid. It took about 6 minutes to install, including 5 minutes of reading directions and holding it up to see if I thought I was putting it in the right place. I was worried because I couldn’t push it closed uninstalled to see it the spacing was right. I went ahead and guessed, installed it, and it closed and opened easily. Not only will it hold the lid open while I’m gathering eggs, but I think it will serve as a small extra layer of protection for my girls from predators as you have to add slight pressure to lift the door (2 fingers, but more than a predator might do. Who knows?) Great buy. I only needed 1 of the 4 so now I’m looking for more cool things to do with the other 3.

  59. Betty Huang

    Perfect! However, the only downside is that it doesn’t close lightly. Caregul of your fingers!

  60. James E. Dietrich

    The length of the strut is about an 1/8 longer than the originals but they work. $11 is a no brainer if you have the ever failing struts on your kraftmaid cabinets.

  61. C A PRIETO

    my motor-home

  62. Surjit Chawla

    easy to install work great

  63. Tye Tash

    Are use these on the hatches of my boat, they work perfect

  64. Wildman1

    Ther just right for storage boxes in my 94 Skeeter boat. Easy install

  65. cuong v trang


  66. EW

    Work as they should, easy to instal

  67. Houston

    I purchased 4 of these and the first two worked well. The plastic or the ball receiver on the third must have been from another batch and it failed at both ends because it was very brittle. So far, the other three have been fine.

  68. edgar castillo

    Really like these. Easy to install and they work great.

  69. CJH

    Built a locking storage cabinet suspended from the ceiling in a closet. Hinged to open up, so I needed these to “hold open”. Worked fantastically! A quick check of the weight of the door (melamine/particle board) put it right in the range of these cylinders. Once the first one was mounted, the door would not stay open (expected), the second one made it work perfectly.

    Instructions are perfectly adequate, a simple diagram with the dimensions is all you need. The mounting plates and hardware are nicely made, and click onto the cylinder ends securely. A thin screwdriver opens the clip to disassemble the ball end without any fuss.

  70. FC315

    Everything went as expected

  71. Raanan Shabtai

    Very good product. Do the job.

  72. R. Orr

    I purchased these to install on an outdoor entertainment center I built for the side of our RV. It was best to have the door swing up, which required struts to hold it open. The door is made from two pieces of 1/4″ Plywood laminated together. Two of them hold up the door perfect. The struts seem to be of good quality and came with all of the necessary mounting hardware, which was a bonus. I will see how long they last, but so far, so good.

  73. BS

    worked as expected. good product

  74. RDW

    Works great!

  75. Ashley Hoopes

    Worked perfect for the Toy Box I built with a 12.5 lb Lid. Last couple of inches aren’t soft close. Need felt tabs for lid corners. When opening, once it gets to >2” it auto-opens to just under 90deg. Will save kiddos heads and the wall behind it. Also built a blanket Chest.

  76. Balaji V

    Using these for cabinets in RV. Works great!

  77. Daniel

    Used them for trunk lid, works as expected

  78. Allen Scott

    I ordered 4, but onlu needed 2. Easy enough install. I had to modify one of the brackets for my situation. They open without too much force, hold open, but will slam shut if you don’t have control. (My scenario anyway). They look great. Individually packaged. The instructions are in metric measurements, so learn to use a metric ruler or do the conversion.

  79. Tim

    Worked great for the three overhead cabinet doors in my Jayco travel trailer. We got tired of having to hold the doors up with our heads as we were either putting things into or taking things out of those cabinets.
    Installation instructions a bit fuzzy but basic mechanical knowledge will over come that.
    Great price.

  80. Build dream

    As advertised, works great

  81. nathan

    very professional packaging and the springs look and react perfectly for my needs. Solid brackets at both ends so I am not worried about them ever bending or breaking off.

  82. Albert Beever



    Installation was easy

  84. Dennis

    Good product BUT to Long

  85. KGB

    Worked very well in our Jayco

  86. AQ

    So far so good. Awesome addition to boat storage.

  87. Chris Haywood

    Great Price, Worked as it should

  88. Eric Kuehn

    Easy mounting. Quality seems high. One strut holds each RV bedroom overhead closet door up. Opens excellent. Exactly what I wanted and needed!

  89. mystry

    Flexible and strong. Very handy.

  90. David Martin

    Worked great. Installed on cabinets and holds the doors wonderfully. Bought 3 more sets for all my cabinets


    Easy to install. It works like the old in my boal for 15 years.

  92. David M

    Seem to be good quality. No issues so far. The instructions are a little confusing, and the brackets may buckle at high loads. These ones are a little too weak for my purpose, so I will be upgrading to the 250N versions. If you’re using these for anything other that a simple box lid, you may need to do some math to figure out the force you need. (Or just use trial and error like me!)

  93. pierre

    These work perfect for the intent which I bought them, the price is right.

  94. ELLe

    These are working great, feel sturdy for drop lift shelf application. Thanks to Amazon customer help! I am giving this 4 stars due to Apexstone unclear, lack of language, install directions. For a person working first time with gas struts, (& having reviewed YouTube for more info) it was unclear how to close them. I did not want to force/break them. It was also unclear how to accurately measure project object attributes based on diagrams supplied (especially to arrive at reverse application).

  95. Mark Modine

    Bought these as replacements for Stabilus Lift O Mats that began failing after three years.
    The vertical opening cabinets never worked better for 25% the price.
    Hope they last!

  96. Seamus

    Worked great for a shoe bench and a wood outdoor cooler.

  97. Andy

    Great product!

  100. Shirley E.

    They work great, it has the safety features that saves little fingers.

  101. Dave

    Just a little stronger than I would like, but work very well. Put them on my motor home storage bay doors.

    Fantastic very sturdy.

  105. Aurora

    Simple, strong durable!! An A+

  106. EM

    Works as advertised. Good packaging and instructions.

  107. Corey H.

    Idk if I read stuff wrong or what but this won’t hold a 48″ x 24″x 1″. This is made for something smaller. So I’ll make it useful.

  108. Danielle

    Worked well for our needs in an RV. We really liked how simple they were to install.

  109. Caitlin Oliveira

    Decent quality and serve their purpose. Great for vertically opening cabinets.

  110. P. R. Mayer

    worked perfect thx

  111. Xalvita

    i like this product i used in a car tool box and works prefect, with price to for 4 pcs, thanks Apexstone

  112. Grant B

    directions complicate install but product works well

  113. Roberto Angelillo

    Excellent product

  114. Lee

    I bought these to replace the lift struts on my KraftMaid cabinet lift up doors. They fit well and so far operate better than the ones that came with the cabinets, which failed after a year. Time will tell how they hold up but even if they last only six months I think they are worth it for the money.

    Works as stated.

  118. J. S. O.

    A bit challenging to install, but work flawlessly!

  119. Jaime buitrago

    Good quality

  120. Gabriel garcia

    They’re fairly priced and do their job I put them on hope chest lifting a Cedar panel that’s 42×22 inches one does the job honestly but two for ascetics

  121. Wanda M.


  122. Venky

    Follow instructions and it works very well. For US consumers, it would be really helpful to have the measurements in inches (in their install instructions)

  123. Freddie Williams Jr

    I needed something to stop a downward motion door from slamming into the one below it it was tricky but it worked. The 4 pack was an excellent price as well.

  124. rickb72

    Look great, installed easy

  125. Framauro

    Works great.

  126. Rhi

    They’re alright, but meant to buy the slow close ones instead. These will still do alright to keep a toy box lid open, but can still slam down on tiny fingers.

  127. Megan

    works fine. Good Quality. Nothing Special

  128. E. Koski

    I got these to replace all the shot struts in the Kraftmaid kitchen cabinets of the house I had just purchased. They were slightly longer than the original ones, but they work fine. The original ones by Stabilus had black rods. These, with the chrome rods, are more attractive, in my opinion. The price was much better!

  129. SomeGuy SomeWhere

    Great product

  130. Shop A Holic

    I got these to keep a window bench open for storing my child’s toys. It opens slowly and great but it slams shut really hard. My son has never squeezed his fingers thankfully but I’m constantly worried that he might. It does keep the top open well though so it’s still a good product just wished it closed a bit softer

  131. Lyn Morgan

    They are very useful. Exactly as advertised.
    Will do business again.
    Thanks very much

  132. Marcia A Petrus

    Working well. Very satisfied.

  133. s.c.

    Great quality!!! Very sturdy. Used for our old toy box so my son wouldn’t crush his tiny fingers. So far so good, it makes it harder for him to close which is great. He is able to close it but it doesn’t slam down at full weight so he hasn’t had any severely smoothed fingers. Glad we bought these!!

  134. Happy Shopper

    Put these on some kitchen cabinets and they work great to keep the door raised while accessing it.

  135. Glenda J. Phillips

    These are awesome!

  136. Scott

    Great but instructions for mounting could be better, had to adjust several times to fully close.

  137. Stewart T. Roy

    100% happy

  138. Chelsea H.

    These are great! My Husband and I are working on converting a cargo trailer to a camper. We have two cabinets that have top mount doors. For over a month we struggled to keep the doors open while we were putting things in, and taking things out. Nothing worked! Finally I decided to “bite the bullet” so to speak and ordered these to try. Wow! I’m so glad I did! These came beautifully packaged with clear directions and all the necessary hardware for install. They feel hefty too, so I feel we got our money’s worth. My Husband didn’t have any issues installing these at all. The end result was a clean install with hinges that actually do their job! Now I no longer have to hold the doors open with my head or have to have my Husband hold the door open while I get stuff out because once we open the doors with these struts on, they stay open until we physically close them. If I was to have a single negative thing to say, it’s that the directions for placement are in metric, so you have to do some configuring if you’re an American and use the Imperial System. No biggie though. The conversions and easy to do and I didn’t find this to be that big of an issue at all. I highly recommend these! I included a photo so you can see these in “action”.

  139. Dennis Rambeau

    As promised.

  140. Michael Mallory

    bought for cabinet project and worked great

  141. Arrunada

    Easy to install, goog quality! does the job.

  142. Tammy

    Works without any problems. However, the screws provided are pretty short. Which simply means if too much force it put on them, they will tear out.

  143. Cat Pap

    these work really well so far and i really get a kick when i open my kitchen cabinets

  144. love-photo

    Overall pistons are good. Doors lift nicely with them and it is a moderate pull to close them. Out of 8 pistons ordered, one is bad. Not worth sending back but would like to have a replacement for the one.

  145. Carbon12

    nice product

  146. Bob K

    These are strong struts for their size. Fit perfectly.

  147. sanctified

    good price

  148. Bro

    Work great. I hope it last

  149. Bonny B.

    Great , for the price. Used to hold up a 16x44x3/4″ plywood boat seat lid. Even with a swivel seat mounted on top one of these will hold it up but I used two for safety. They are not soft close but are soft open

  150. KLM

    Struts are great but the hardware that is supplied to mount them is soft and has bent under the pressure

  151. Larry J. Moya

    I was ready to give up on these, until I read some reviews and realized that I could use them. Just follow the instructions. 2.75 inched away from the center of the hinge, door side and 9.5 inches at the stationary side easy. I installed on my new RV since the manufacturer was too cheap in include them. They work great.

  152. Richard Miller

    Great product. Got 4 for less $ than 1 OEM strut. Just had to move one bracket about 3/8 of an inch.

  153. Sueki

    You have to have two shocks to work. Awesome, very happy!!! Enjoying my cabinets.

  154. ESRD

    very good product!!!

    Very nice struts for cabinet door applications. The lower mount works best if fastening to approx 1″ material. The removable ball joint ends are a premium design that facilitates easy installation. The metal construction and removable ends are not found on typical RV cabinet struts. These units are much better built. My doors are 14″ X 11″ and one strut has plenty of power. Very pleased with the value for the price!

  156. Bill W

    Very nice, quality product. Purchased to replace small struts on trailer cupboard door to allow it to open further.

  157. Wildlife Up Close

    These struts are good for any job needed to open and hold open a door or lid. I used one on a storage box and it works great.

  158. Terri Brelin

    They are easy to install and very strong

  159. Moti Arad

    Very good product, it holds the cabinet door very well.

  160. David

    works great put it on a old trunk so kids didn’t lose a finger

  161. Kodi Green

    Used on a toy box. Work great to keep little fingers from getting smashed.

    Very good product and very good performance!

  164. Holidayvilla

    Worked exactly as I hoped & for the price, great

  165. Kimberly

    Works great. Replaced old Stabilus spring in less than 3 minutes. The fittings matched up perfectly.

    Tout est bien, la livraison, la description, un bon prix, seul chose qui ne me plait pas: les attaches au bout des cylindres me semblent faibles.

  167. tommytrek

    These struts couldn’t be easier to install, and they operate very nicely. The instructions included were somewhat lacking and poorly written, but if you have at least some basic mechanical/hardware knowledge you’ll have the information needed to get it done. A great value for the price. Durability remains to be seen, but they feel very solid lifting and supporting the 25 pound lid I used them for.

  168. Cherokee Ham

    Upgraded our tiny struts with longer struts, now the cabinet doors are fully open. Working great now after a year.

  169. Lacey

    Worked well and easy install! I would recommend using bushings on the lids as these are strong struts and can slam a little.

  170. D. L. Hill

    Holds up a toy box lid just fine.

  171. Jared MacRobb

    I mainly bought these to put one on our chicken coop nesting box lid. It was a little heavy and cumbersome to hold open with your face while trying to harvest the eggs.

    These installed in about 10 minutes and work perfectly. They work so well and I have 2 left, so I’m trying to find anywhere that I can put them!

  172. laanna b

    Used these on an old center chest with a heavy lid. They work perfectly. No more smashed fingers!!!!

  173. Steve

    Our RV used Stabilus 8851SQ 0100N 345/10 struts for two large overhead cabinet doors. After looking everywhere for the Stabilus struts I found these Apexstone 100N/22.5LBs online, pack of 4 for under $20, such a deal!!! They are not an exact fit for the Stabilus struts in that they are 5/8 inch longer. So I moved the bottom pivot point down 5/8 of an inch. They work like a charm. It is so nice to be able to use both hands inside the cabinets without balancing the cabinet door on my head.


    Meet expectations

    An inexpensive solution for overhead awning style kitchen cabinet doors! These are used for RV/Camper doors, but I used them in my kitchen for my awning style overhead cabinet doors. A perfect solution and much less expensive then other advertised “kitchen” hardware. Very easy installation and quick delivery.

  176. Renaissance Man

    Excellent replacement for bass boat doors.

  177. L. McNerney

    Works great for toy box lids. Includes the installation hardware, and other than measuring properly it could not be easier to install! Provides pretty decent lift. It wont prevent the kids from slamming the lids, but it does lessen the damage when it happens. A little felt pad on the lid can solve the rest.

  178. L

    Great quality product with clear instructions, just ended up not being the right size for my kitchen cabinets sadly because of the position of the glass shelf inside. Otherwise would have been perfect!

  179. Ben M.

    EDIT: My purchase was prior to the introduction of the “Soft Close” struts that are now available. I purchased the lid-stay struts which aren’t intended to be used for soft closing. Cheers to Apexstone for introducing the Soft Close variety.

    Original: These work great, for their intended purpose. I intended to buy a cylinder to prevent a toychest lid from smashing my daughter’s hand. These don’t work that way! (Woops) That said, these do lift lids, cabinet doors, etc. quite well! Just don’t expect them to prevent lids from closing. Check the video and you’ll know what I mean.

  180. dmenace

    Easy to install and they keep the overhead door in my rv from knocking my noggin. Good deal.


    Used these for some toy boxes I built, Wow, they are great! No smashed fingers for my grand babies!

  182. Giles

    Used them to replace cabinet lifters that came with our trailer. Worked great!

  183. macland

    would buy again —-very nice

  184. Steve Schock

    I bought these in order to replace the two short gas struts which were supplied with my 2016 Lance travel trailer. The factory units were only half the length of these and did not allow the overhead cabinet door to swing up high enough to avoid banging my head on the edge of the door. If you are over 5’6″, these are a must. The door now swings up 110 degrees and is parallel to the floor. My noggin is thankful.

  185. knightson

    Very heavy duty shocks. We used these on our camper for overhead cabinets and they work great. Because of where and how I ended up mounting these to the cabinet I used same style bracket on both ends of the shock; therefore I only had two usable shocks. However, they were such a great deal I bought another set to install on the third overhead cabinet. The instructions were written a bit funny, but with some trial and error I was able to figure out best spot to mount these. Without these shocks we did not like using the overhead cabinets and now they are the most used space in the RV.

  186. It’s Spiller Time

    Can’t complain, not strong enough for my application, but that’s due to poor calculations on my part.

  187. Karen Wilson


  188. Dima

    The same one I paid twice as much from the local RV dealer.
    For the price one I got 4.
    Thank you

  189. Koa

    This saved me quite a few dollars! I removed the cable on my Harley tourpak (razor pak) and installed one of these! It has just the right amount of power to raise the lid and not too much force when closing it.

  190. Brent Anderson

    Works great

  191. Steven g cole

    Works great

  192. Alfredo Vivado

    They seem sturdy and solid, have not used them yet as my project was postponed.

  193. Fredster

    Replaced the ones on my motorhome cabinets which were no longer holding the doors open.

  194. Peter T. Sadow

    These are super quality items. They were a little more than I needed for my cabinets, but certainly worked. I think they will last forever. They could support a fairly heavy door.

  195. jeff2413

    Bought these as an alternative to the overpriced Rockler brand (that are probably made in the same factory). I’ve used these a few times on a particular style locker mudroom system we offer to our clients. They work great. Last application was on flat panel 5 piece doors that were 24 x 16 x3/4. Not sure about the door weight but maybe a couple pounds. They worked perfectly. Will order again for sure.

  196. Bahama Mama

    They work great, they are affordable and easy to install.

  197. Ed Wood

    These work well for the toy box that my grandkids need to use. The instructions are not that great and in metric but I find anymore that lots of stuff I deal with have metric measurements. I originally went to buy another more expensive product, but settled on these. I am pleased and I would buy them again.

  198. min ho ,kim

    very good very fast thank you

  199. Craig Rilee

    I only needed 1 to hold up the vertical opening cabinets in my trailer. The screws supplied are very weak. Use a manual screw driver to set the screws.

  200. Michael Sabino

    Used these for a woodworking project. Needed hardware that assisted opening a lid and retarding closing. This worked great.

  201. BenMD

    I saw a couple of reviews that questioned the quality of these, but the ones I received were very nice (and I’m super picky about cheapness). Easy to install, work great, even look nice. I used them for an overhead cabinet in an Airstream trailer (hinged at top). Great price, too.

  202. Steven R. Akers

    Got these for our overhead cabinets in the RV. The doors open upwards and would not stay open unless ypu hold it, Problem solved. I only used one per door ane it worked great.

  203. ham

    I use these to support my crawl space doors.
    They work as expected.

  204. Gerry Costerisan

    Good deal for the money

  205. Terrence E. Gillis

    A tremendous value.
    I really was surprised at how well they worked for the price we paid.
    They look good and work good.

  206. Ron

    Good Product! Came One day later than Promised

  207. James & Erin G

    Too hard to close, otherwise very well made and as advertised.

  208. Lisa K.

    Product works as described, although they seem a little heavier than 20 lbs. I haven’t tested them, just keep in mind these are very capable, heavy duty lift springs. The directions, as noted by others, are a joke. Be prepared to test, check, and play with the placement to get these to work right.

  209. Matthew W

    Work great. Just not that great of build quality. But hey, they work great and were offered at a really great price. I mounted differently than instructed, as I was installing in custom cabinets, and they still perform well.

  210. Derrick LA

    Exactly what I expected thank you


    Good product for the price.

  212. John L. Rose

    Read a lot of bad reviews about this product, but I found it to be superb. They are so robust, I use them on my manufacturing floor to replace the ones that have worn out on my machines.

  213. Sweety

    The Apexstone door lifts did exactly what I expected them to do and they did the job well.

  214. wilfredo montano

    Great deal! easy to install and they work well on my homemade cabinets…

  215. Gene Costello

    Worked fine.

  216. ccs

    Excellent. Ten minutes to replace the old failed lifts.

  217. danimal83

    These were perfect for what i needed. I used them horizontally for a storage cabinet (the doors open outward). I got the brackets that help change how they’re mounted. Extremely pleased with these.

  218. Bruno

    Excellent product that fits perfectly for what I needed.

  219. Austin

    I’m not sure if these will work for my need, but not by any fault of the springs. They’re just much stronger than I expected. Though it doesn’t have it in the description (from what I could see), these exert 100N of force.

  220. G. Bacon

    Purchased these to use two of them on a very heavy oak top to a sideboard I made and was very surprised to find out that they were strong enough that I only need one. We can now lift the sideboard top up and it stays in place until you pull it down!

  221. Karla Rodriguez

    Perfect replacement for my old hinges, I order only 4 to try them and now ill order 8 more for the rest of the cabinets

  222. Jomy V. Muttathil

    Great quality at a good price. really lifts and holds a good amount of weight. Will probably buy more for future projects.
