The Solution

  1. Aligning the body of the stay with the edge of the cabinet panel allowed for quick and easy installation of the stay. This significantly reduced the time needed to determine the stay position during the furniture design phase.

Easy installation just by aligning it with the edge.

Mounting conventional stays was difficult as it required precise measurements of the distance between the door, bottom panel, and stay. If these stays were not installed accurately, the screw holes had to be filled. Additionally, the positioning of the hinges varied slightly depending on the type of hinge used in conjunction with the stay. These detailed measurements during the product design stage were time-consuming and inefficient.

In contrast, the Compact Soft Down Stay CSD-10-TV model, which was used in a case study, was easy to install. All that was required was to align the main unit with the edge of the wood panel and fix it in place (*). This eliminated the troublesome positioning adjustments during the design phase and simplified the installation process. During installation, no position marking was required, allowing for quick and error-free installation.
*This is the case when the door and cabinet base plate are flat when the door flap is fully opened.
The mounting plate on the door is also easy to install on both the cabinet and door side, as the mounting position can be found by simply placing the template provided.

Easy installation even for upper kitchen cabinets!
Soft-close, lift-assist, and free-stop motions in one stay.

The LAPCON STAY SLS-ELAN model utilized in this study provides a user-friendly experience. It allows for effortless opening and prevents the door from falling down when released. The stay also enables a slow and quiet closing. Moreover, it is evaluated for its capacity to reduce installation time due to its easy mounting process - simply align the body of the stay with the edge of the cabinet panel and secure it in place.
