Thread: Floor trap door

  1. #1

    Default Floor trap door

    I recently built a large trap door in my floor when I laid my hardwood floors. I completed it with a gas shock for assistance in lifting. Now the one thing I am having trouble with is that with the gas shock in place I need something to hold or lock it in the closed position. It pops up a few inches without. I tried installing two adjustable brass bullet catches from Rockler but it's not enough to hold it in place. I don't want anything sticking up above the floor as we still use it for floor space. Does anyone have any suggestions to point me in the right direction? Thanks in advance.
