I'm looking for recommendations for toy box safety hinges. What ones have people used that they have liked?

Dear Randall

One of the Lads here made some toy boxes, I was really impressed with the 'soft closing' stays he used, there was no little fingers getting trapped with those.

They are listed here... https://www.hafele.co.uk/en/product/blanket-box-lid-stay-mounted-to-side-panel-and-lid/0000002f00024d1800010023/#SearchParameter=&Category=b4IKAOsFs1UAAAFeR3t9OkCi&checkbox_fs_flap_type=Lid+Stays&@P.FF.followSearch=10000&PageNumber=1&OriginalPageSize=12&Position=10&OrigPos=&ProductListSize=12

Sincerely and in good faith
Martin

For a 2-year old granddaughter, I recently made a very large toy box that the lid weighed about 20-lbs. I used gas spring hinges from Amazon that work very well and wouldn't allow it to slam closed.
