Review

I’ve designed and built lots of toy boxes and blanket chests over the years, and I’ve never found lid hinges that work as well as Rockler’s Lid-Stay Torsion Hinges.
Based on the concept of laptop computer hinges, these Lid-Stays hold a lid in place at any angle, preventing it from dropping onto the chest. That’s especially valuable when children reach into a toy box to retrieve toys. But these hinges aren’t universal for all projects: Heavier lids will require specific hinges based on its size and weight. Fortunately, Rockler has a torsion calculator on its Web site to help you find the right hinges, available in three sizes and two colors (bronze and silver). —Tested by Kevin Boyle
