Need some help with installation with these lid supports from Lee Valley

The install info shows a different orientation than the picture.

So now I’m confused, any one use these before?

Yep, the one in your hand is the left and the one mounted is a right.

I use the Rockler safety hinges (over and over).

David, thanks for the Rockler mention, I found install instructions there.

Waho, I used the Rockler instructions and mounted the lid supports today without a hitch.

Thanks for your reply’s everyone.

I know you have your answer already but if this kind of question crops up again it may be worth giving Lee Valley a call. I’ve found them to be extremely helpful.

Mark, I did contact Lee Valley and they provided the install pic (2nd pic) which will not allow the lid to open fully. While at the woodworking show in Fredericksburg, Va recently I passed the info along to the Lee Valley folks.
