Gas struts
« on: January 14, 2019, 09:18:56 AM »
Has anyone used gas struts to hold their control box door open? I know most have the door going side to side but in my build I have it opening upward. With the weight of the PSUs on the lid, I was thinking about using some gas struts to hold the door open (up) when I am in the box while mounted on my wall. Thanks.

As another option is it possible with your enclosure to modify it to open fully up over center.  Basically, rolling it back till the back of the door rests on the top of the enclosure?
