Product details

This small surface-mounted lid stay is very easy to use compared to those lid stays in recessed dishes because there is no need to cut holes on the plywood panels nor installing piano and butt hinges next to it. It is very sturdy and does the same job.

We recommend this small surface-mounted lid stay if you are building a compact flight case using 6mm plywood panels. This lid-stay is made of 1.0MM 16 gauge steel, with 8 mounting holes so it is surely heavy duty and will last for a long time.

Below is a list of matching chrome small size surface mount hardware, 6mm laminated plywood panels, and extrusions for your convenience.
