Need bathroom mirror sliding stay idea's

I would like to find a set of sliding stays for the bathroom mirror like the originals or if they exist some folding stays that lock open and I can unlock both stays with one hand. The spring loaded or gas struts i've seen snap shut and I would like to avoid that.

I'm thinking it would be nice if you swing the mirror up, it automatically locks open and if you lift the mirror up a little more it will unlock the stays so you can swing the mirror back down to the closed position.

Here's a picture of the stays I would like to find but the 7" length has been discontinued.

Pretty standard stuff - Home Depot or any cabinet shop should have it.


Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.

Those are similar to what is on our TT - send an e-mail to the tech people in JC - maybe they can give you the specs on what is currently in use. If it meets your needs, I'm sure they'll sell you some.
