Brilliant. Thanks a ton for the schematic and part number.

So much happier that this stays up by itself now. Click image for larger version

Gas struts installed on cabinet door above fridge

Originally Posted by BobAndStella View Post
I really wanted to do this; but discovered that the height of this cabinet on our 2017 FBT FC is only 8 1/4Ē. So it wonít work. Still looking for a similar solution.

We also have a smaller cabinet in our 2017 FC25 FBQ - the struts will work they just have to be attached a little further back into the cabinet. You can see from my picture the first location closer to the front of the cabinet; the piston closed on itself when attached there and would not allow the door to swing shut. The further back location for the base works perfectly.

Came across a video on general installation of struts recommending the piston extend from the bottom so that there is a little dampening effect as the door swings upwards. Attached at the door and then used a block of wood against the extended piston to find the sweet spot where the piston will compress but still allow the door to close fully. This door is so light that only on piston is needed from what I can tell.

Now need advice on how to plug the holes from the mistaken first location. Or just keep our barware up there and you canít see it . . .

The previous owner of my 25FB added the strut and I like it!

I understand that AS now installs gas struts on bathroom cabinets.
My 2016 28 RBQ does not have them. Does any
Have the spec for the strut AS uses on newer models
Of the 28RBQ?
