Need help identifying hardware

Hey guys

Someone I know was asking me to build them a laundry hanger like this one:

I am looking for the type of hardware that was used in this project. Looks like some kind of lid stay that opens to about 30 degrees. I have no idea where to look or what the actual name of the hardware would be. Any ideas? Thanks

That hardware might have been made for that product. If there is enough depth you might make a lid support work or perhaps a transom adjuster.

Might be some kind of desk door hinge support, then mounted at the hight needed so it only opens to that angle.

Like this, but probably smaller by the looks of the picture you posted.

Two pieces of chain cut to the correct length would be the simplest thing. I am not writing about large link chain, just the small decorative chain that is sold by the foot in many places.

Yes, chain was my first thought too. The way it looks like in the picture, one chain may be sufficient.

Keep thy axe sharp.
