Post by Rcnewcomb »

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/bla ... istSize=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.
