A Lid Lift Assist is available for smaller Studio Electric and Glass Kilns - 18" wide or smaller and Medallion models when placing your order. Models 20" and wider are equipped with a Lid Lift Assist. The Lid Lift makes even the heaviest kiln lid easy to open.
Olympic's Lid Lift Assist is designed so that there isn't any stress on the kiln lid or body with the lid arm, which runs across the top of the kiln. The back brace attaches to the kiln stand as a single unit.
