A Back-Mounted, Balance Adjustable Lid Stay

Control top-opening lids with the S-ATJ01S spring loaded, balance adjustable lid stay!

Top-opening lids can be inconvenient to use: They can be heavy or awkward to open and must be manually held open in any position other than fully open to keep from slamming shut.

Lid stays are the proper control hardware you need to manage top-opening lids in any setting, especially in businesses and other settings where people are busy and efficiency is essential. That’s where our S-ATJ01S Balance Adjustable Lid Stay comes into play.

Why You Need the S-ATJS Lid Stay

From our S-ATJ Series of spring-loaded lid stays, the S-ATJ01S offers convenience and control over top-opening lids, with the following high-performance features:

  • The spring-loaded lift-assist mechanism makes opening top-mounted lids a breeze. The lift support will also hold the door open at any position you want, between 10° and 80°.
  • The spring tension in the S-ATJ01S is adjustable so that you can correct for the lid’s balance and shape.
  • The balance adjustment mechanism on this adjustable lid stay is an alternative to traditional torque-adjustable lid stays, offering better responsiveness, especially for unusual lid shapes.
  • The balance adjustment is very user-friendly: All you need is a Phillips screwdriver, and the balance adjustment screw is easy to reach and easy to turn.

Note: The S-ATJ Series is not compatible with concealed hinges.

High-End Hardware for High-Use Applications

The S-ATJ01S adjustable lid stay has the following specifications:

  • Heavy-Duty: The S-ATJ01S supports torque loads of 78 lbs-in (90 kgf-cm). For a heavier-duty option choose the S-ATJ02S instead, which can handle up to 104 lbs-in (120 kgf-cm).
  • Back-Mounted: The S-ATJ01S mounts to the back panel of the lid’s underlying container. For stays that mount to the container side panels instead, try the S-ATJ line, available as either the S-ATJ01 or the heavier-duty S-ATJ02.
  • Non-Dampable: The S-ATJS line is not compatible with our optional add-on damper, the S-ATD-30, which provides soft-close functionality, making the lid as easy to close as it is to open. For a dampable back-mounted version, try the S-ATJD line, available either as the S-ATJD01 or the S-ATJ02D.
  • 430 Stainless Steel: The S-ATJD01 is constructed with high-quality grade 430 stainless steel, giving it both durability and elegance for the end user. This is a great long-term value proposition!
  • Can Be Used in Multiples: The S-ATJD01 can be used individually or in multiples as needed.
