Ordering was easy and was delivered promptly. I haven’t installed the hardware yet, but I’m concerned that it is a little lightweight for such heavy lids. We’ll see!

Hi Jack, on hardwood heavy lids, we recommend using 3 hinges per each half lid. For pine, rest assured the hinges are solid. Same design has been in use for more than 100 years.
