Main Question or Discussion Point
I'm building a wall mounted cabinet, with a fold down door. It is for my grandson's slot car track, in his bedroom. The door is 3x7 feet and weighs approximately 40 lbs. It is mounted length wise, on the wall. I think I need tension or torsion gas springs, which pull instead of push. I don't want the door to drop down and hit him and I want it to be easy to open and close. The door will open 90 degrees and rest on the floor. I can mount the two springs, wherever needed, as I have no set point which needs to used. I have tried several gas spring manufacturers and they have not been of any help. I just need to use a stock spring and mount it accordingly, but I don't know how to figure what I need. Can anyone help me with this?
