    What is a Door or Lid Assist?

They are not only practical; they provide a layer of safety as well. Assists also offer strength, but also allow doors to open and close smoothly. So what is a lid or door assist, and how are they most commonly used?

    Selecting the Right Hardware.

    There a few different things to consider for purchasing the right door or lid assist for your IMG_2365desired application. For starters, consider the strength needed for your project. If this is for small cabinetry, you will not need something as strong as say for a heavy-duty industrial application. This is just one comparison, but there are many different applications. In addition to strength or size, you can also consider finish and material. For something that you need to be durable to withstand lots of usage like for emergency vehicles, you need something that is made for strength and durability.
