Shiffler Premium Desk Lift Lid Support - Right and Left Hand


Non-binding nylon bearing provides quiet, smooth operation. Minimal friction ensures maximum hinge life. Used in conjunction with a hinge, these supports keep the lid from slamming shut. Self-balancing feature holds in any position up to 85 degrees.  Current design has elbow joint closest to the flat bracket, mounted to the underside of the desk top.  The opposite end features a two ear "U" bracket for mounting to the side of the desk book box.  Recommended to be replaced in pairs for best performance.  Save $ when you buy the pair.
