bench seat lid supports?

I built these bench seats with lids that open with a piano hinge. The pivot point is at the top of the 3/4"plywood lid. Every lid stay diagram I find shows the pivot point at the bottom of the lid thus I can't figure out which lid support to use or how to install the Home Depot lid supports that I did buy. Can anyone help me?

Did you get something to work?

I have a project with the same issue you described, pivot point is on the top of the lid rather than the bottom. Did you find something that worked?
