Spring Hinge Drop

Wow, the spring loaded hinge really makes a difference on the weight of the lid. Easy up and down with one hand.[p]I notice that the rear bracket on the spring hinge travels down farther when the lid is opened verses the latched hinge. I made a make shift housing for the egg (something to set it in until table gets built - don't want anyone knocking over the ceramic egg on my concrete pad), it is 17" high - the same as the gap between shelfs on a table for a large egg. The rear spring hinge hits on the back ledge. I had to raise the egg up a couple inches to prevent this from happening.[p]Looks like consideration is needed for the hinge when building a new table. The spring hinge drops a full 1 1/2 inches when opened.[p]Here are a few pic's.[p]-Boccie

    Thanks for the detailed photos. My large Egg is already in a tile-topped table and from what your photos tell me I can't add the spring assisted device without messing up my table or raising the height of my Egg (Both No No's). Looks like I'm forever stuck with the original equipment.[p]Spring Chicken
