Cabinet Struts?

Just bought a 2018 Wolf Pup 16FQ and none of the overhead cabinets have struts to hold them up. Where is a good place to get these? Anyone have recommendations are certain brands to get?

Those look to be very strong struts. Do you have a pic of your install?

They're really not that powerful. They are specifically made for this application. I will take a few pics when I get home from work. They work perfectly.

Thank you! I purchased these exact struts for my 2017 Wolfpup, and have been holding off on installing. Looks like I may need to reinforce the cabinet frame to give more surface area to attach. Looking forward to seeing your photos.

Yeah the install was tricky. The base has 3 screw holes. I was only able to get 2 screws in because the frame is so thin. But it seemed sturdy when I did 1 door so I went and did them all. Haven't had an issue yet. I'll post pics later tonight.

I used similar ones in my wolf pack and all of the mounting screws tore out of cheap cabinet wood because the struts were too strong.

Here's a few pics of mine. I admit the wood is cheap so long term strength may be an issue. But for now Things are good. You can see holes above the mount. They were from where the original clamp was located. I had to move them to the bottom for the strut to fit. I just went slow and pre drilled all the holes in hopes of not cracking the wood. Adding a 1x3 behind might not be a bad idea. Click image for larger version
