Get a Free Kindle of my Award-Winning Book! It's gritty and humorous; but don't take my word for it... I have several books at various stages of production (first draft, finals, with agent). It's a tough business, especially with all the brick-and-mortar stores going under.
I've also published a few books for a friend. All I can say about them is... Read the reviews on them too. Turn a normal coffee table into a tricked-out coffee table. Thick, heavy metal won't bend.
2 hinges per package - enough to do one coffee table (or whatever you want to use it for). Screws are not included (you may use bolts, machine screws, wood screws or whatever you feel necessary for your particular project). Thickness: 2.5 and 4.0mm. This is a Heavy Duty piece of hardware. Overall length and height when in folded position: 12 x 3 1/2 inches.The top raises up 8 inches and forward 5 inches. The bottom section that attaches to the side is 7 inches long and the top that attaches to the platform you'll be raising is 6 1/4 inches. The specs say it will hold between 110 and 220 lbs when opening. IMPORTANT Each Gas Hydraulic Lift has 66 lbs of force.
In other words, you need the top to be 132 lbs to hold that sucker in closed position. Or you can find a suitable clasp at a local hardware store to hold it closed.
