Rule Joint Folding Stay Pair 5"
Sold as a pair.
Our brass rule jointed folding lid stays from England are the best choice for both chest lids and desk flap support. Correctly installed a folding stay intrudes very little into the box or desk so the chance of interference with internal structure is much less than is the case with a sliding stay. Our folding stays extent to slightly beyond 180 degrees. This attribute prevents them closing unless deliberately released at the joint and should be considered a useful feature but also a potential liability. We would not recommend these stays for use around small children, the potential for accidental release and pinched fingers is slight but it does exist. Friction stays are probably a better choice under these circumstances. For correct mounting points please see Installing Folding Lid Stays.
