Cabinet door headache!

What goes up, must come down, including cabinet doors! I have a small problem, all my cabinet doors that open from the bottom, do not latch in the open position. Does anyone have a solution as to how to keep them in the open position?

Pneumatic door lifts are what you need.

I had to relocate and adjust most of the cabinet door latches and catches on our older Lance pickup camper to make them work. If the issue is holding up a cabinet door that hinges at the top, most of these have a small catch to do this. Sometimes the manufacturer cleverly hides them on the ceiling. Took a while for us to find one of them on our 2006 Arctic Fox pickup camper. Had to hinge the door up to the ceiling, then flip over the catch. Previous owner on our Arctic Fox added adhesive back Velcro patches and small straps to secure various doors. The Velcro works great, but tends to collect pet hair...

As AZ Bound said, pneumatic door lifts will do the trick.

Yea, they look like they may work. They cost about 2-3 dollars, not bad. I will for sure give it a try. Thanks to all for the good idea.

Are you saying that you have found struts for 2-3 dollars, if so please share your source. Thanks
