Hello, I have looked high and low online for this lid stay and would love to have your help. The guy in the video calls it a slide hinge but it also seems like it could be a lid stay which is what it is being used for. It has a thumb turn tension/friction adjustment. The goal is to have a lid that can be stopped at various angles for watercolor painting.

Can anyone help please?

thanks in advance!

thank you.

I think you are correct that the ratchet bracket would work. I was hoping to find something that would look more attractive mounted to the exterior of the box to match the brass and leather finishes planned for the design. I think I may just have to adjust the interior design to mount the ratchet bracket to the interior of the sides. The stepped locking mechanism of the ratchet would probably be more stable than the friction turn anyway.
