See pictures. You’ll need to pre drill the holes. I used 7/64 bit. That’s it. Happy Camping!

Our brand-new RV has eleven horizontal hinged overhead doors. My spouse recently injured her shoulder and can''t raise one hand to hold the door open and use the other hand to take-out/put-in things in these cabinets. Like others, I could see installation without guidance would be tricky. After watching poor videos and reading others'' incomplete descriptions, I''m going to try to do a better job.

1) Cut a perfectly rectangular piece of 1/4" plywood 3.5"X5.5".
2) Open the cabinet door - it would help if you had a second person.
3) Center the long edge of the jig on the cabinet frame - meaning literally the edge should be just far enough inside the depth of the frame to be at its center.
4) Slide the jig up the frame to the point where the door is open perpendicular to the cabinet and resting on the short side of the jig.
5) Mark the frame at the lower corner of the jig - this will be 5.5" below the open door, again, centered in the depth of the frame. This is where the screw for the round pivot of the support will be placed.
6) For the first door only, remove the jig and drill a hole in the frame at your mark - use a bit just smaller than the shaft of the screw (not the total width of the screw or it won''t hold). Make it almost as deep as the part of the screw that sticks out from the pivot point.
7) Screw the pivot point in place - not loose, but not so tight that the pivot cannot swivel.
8) Make sure the door end of the support has the rounded side pointed toward the interior of the door and not toward the edge of the door. Make sure door remains perpendicular to the frame and maneuver the support on the swivel until the door end of the support is flush to the door. Mark the two screw holes.
9) Sorry, now remove that pivot screw and the support. Put the jig back in place with the corner at the pivot screw hole and the other end flush with the perpendicular door. Mark the jig with the position of the screw holes and the distance away from your jig for the marks of the soon to be two more screw holes in the door.
10) Drill the two screw holes - remember, these holes are more shallow than the pivot screw hole.
11) Now install your H277 support with all three screws and test your door.

With the rest of your doors, you should be able to quickly mark the position for all three screw holes with the jig, drill, screw and on to the next door.

Even though these didn''t come with instructions, they were pretty easy and painless to install. This is an upgrade that must be made to any overhead storage in your RV. It makes accessing any cabinet with doors that lift up to open. No more using one hand to hold the door open and the other to grab your stuff. I mounted my first set in the cabinets over the bed that will help out tremendously. I will be placing another order soon for the other cabinet doors that lift up in my trailer. I would have given 5 Stars, but since there was no instructions I deducted a star. I even went to RV Designers website hoping for an instruction manual or installation video and there was nothing.

Would love better installation instructions. Here''s what I did in our RV: Screwed the door side of the unit on first- approximately 1.5" from the hinged side of the door. Held the door open to precisely where I wanted it to stop ( just shy of the RV ceiling) then screwed the bottom clip into the cabinet frame. Worked like a charm. Once these are installed, your door will NOT open any further than where you had it when you screwed this to the cabinet frame. Be sure you like where it''s at, because that''s all you are going to get. A big plus is now the doors don''t hit the ceiling - ever. And yes, the door fully closes. I only needed one per door ( approx 6x13" doors with glass) - two would be way too much force. These are an excellent update to those overhead vertical doors. Makes loading and unloading easier, and now we don''t need to hold the door open with one hand and grab stuff with the other. One handed operation - very convenient when cooking. These are plastic bodied, steel shaft, plastic hardware and spring operated. They appear durable, but should we have troubles, I''ll update this review.

I have a cabinet maker of 40 years I''ve been doing high and Architectural Millwork for 25 of those years. I know the cabinet doors overlay at the top and on the sides at various dimensions. So I understand a specific instruction would not apply to all cases. However there has to be a formula based on the opening height and how much the door overlays the top rail of the cabinet. So on my mind instructions providing that formula would be helpful even to me as a cabinetmaker with 40 years experience was installed all kinds of weird Hardware there''s always been instructions with a base Point reference point yada yada yada. It won''t be the first time I''ve had to figure this kind of thing out so once I do I will provide the formula so future purchasers of this product can I install it just once instead of hit and miss which is probably what I''m going to have to do if I can''t figure out the geometry on paper. So at this point having not installed the hardware I''m going to give it a one cuz I don''t know how it''s going to perform once I have it installed test it out perhaps I will review it with a higher number

I bought these for my upper travel trailer cabinet door since it''s such a pain to hold the door up while loading stuff over your head into the cabinet. They were quick and easy to install and two are more than strong enough to hold up the wide door. In fact, you have to be careful opening it - only going about halfway and letting the struts do the rest. My wife pulled further and actually pulled the strut apart. Not a big deal, you can just reinsert it. Also be cautious closing the door because the struts make it easy to slam closed. This is good though because it means the struts have more than enough strength to keep the door closed even during bumpy highway driving. My only concern is longevity given that the whole product is plastic and the ease with which you can pull the strut apart.

Used this on a RV overhead cabinet door. Came with no instructions so I searched on line and found a diagram showing that the pivot screw should be installed 5.5" below the rail (top) of the cabinet face frame. The "L" bracket in my case was .5" down the the top of the door. This position had the door on a downward slant but fine for my purposes. The box had a cancer warning making me think this was a gas or oil strut but its not. The strut is spring loaded. My guess is that the cancer warning is for the plastic packaging. Only one strut was needed for my door. The color is a bark bronze.

The door support is very good. I gave it three stars due to the fact there were no instructions. Installation is not as straight forward as you may think, unless you are a cabinet maker. First, RV have composite "wood". Not as strong as wood. Second, I would recommend drilling a pilot hole for the bottom end and long screw. I did not and managed to split the composite wood frame! (not happy!). Lastly, view a youtube video showing the "installation" of this product. He used one support per cabinet door. I would not recommend doing this as I think you need both supports to prevent splitting of the frame. The struts could handle the door, but would one strut overtime weaken the cabinet frame? I think so.

First of all, the included screws were awful. The heads stripped when trying to install them. Had to use my own Robertson (square) head screws. Finally got it installed on my RV kitchen cupboard door . It''s a small door and should only require one support. It did not hold the door open and when closed the plastic shaft just ended up bending like a piece of licorice. Bought the all metal version and it worked fine (still had to use my own screws).
