T-118 is a small, nickel plated lid stay. Stays are used to keep your trunk's lid from opening too far and damaging the wall behind. This stay is appropriate for small to medium size trunks. Depending on the size and weight of your lid, you may want to use a hinge on each size. These hinges can be mounted on either the left or right side of your trunk lid. This stay measures 4 1/4" when open and is 3/4" at it's widest.
