          Stop the slam with this soft close adapter that quietly and smoothly closes cabinet doors. It can be adjusted by the turn of a screw to the desired closing speed and is the perfect retrofit solution. This damper is easy to mount in the upper corner of your cabinet.

          We had new cabinets installed about 4 years ago and at the time soft close hinges weren't available on the cabinets we ordered. I installed these on all 18 cabinets and they work really well on all but the heavier doors. We have a door with a spice rack on it and the weight still makes it bang a little. I tried installing 2 as suggested in the instructions and it really didn't help much. Overall very pleased with this very cost effective solution. Ordering new hinges from the manufacture was over $20 per cabinet.

          would these soft close door dampers work for the lid of a chest if several were used?

          Answer: 
          In my opinion not very well if there is any weight to the lid at all. They are plastic and appear to me to be best designed to fit on a cabinet frame.
