Default Cabinet Hinge

1997 face frame hinge. I have a few small doors above the driver's area that are hinged horizontally (they open upward). When I open these doors, they stay open (no pistons). I have similar doors above the bed area on each side. They look the same but don't stay open. I'd like to get hinges for these similar to the ones in the front driver's area, but can't seem to find a spring hinge tensioned to stay open at ~90.

Does anyone know a source for these?

thanks.glenn

Thanks Mike. But my clothing storage area above the beds has doors that are about 20" wide and only 4" high. I'm afraid that the type of hinge you linked would work but be in the way of taking clothes in and out. My hinges look just like the hinges you see on face-frame kitchen cabinetry but seem to be sprung to hold the door open.

Do your existing hinges have any markings that would indicate brand/model? How far do they hold the doors open? Here is something that may work.

on our old rocknroll tour buses, cabinet doors were held by these


the phillips at the bottom is used to tension the guide to hold door in position


they work well

You might try Winnebago for hinges as my large cabinet door stay open without any obstruction.
