    Install took me less than an hour for all (6) . Really makes these cabinets more usable

    How do you rate the force on the gas shocks? Too much, too little or perfect? I have been contemplating this on my 340 as these top hinged cabinet doors are such a pain. Thanks

    For $17 definitely worth a shot. I can't stand having to hold the doors up while putting things away.
