AKURUM As Overhead Cabinet

Hi there. I have mounted an Akurum 24" x 36" sideways so that it functions as an overhead door. The swing action seems fine, however I am struggling to find an overhead stay to keep it from falling back down (**** you gravity). Does anyone have any tips?

I've tried to upload two images to better explain...

Awesome! Found a Hafele supplier here in Calgary (Handles and More), and have placed an order.

Thanks.

FYI , I ended up using the Hafele Duo overhead stay. One per cabinet. I set up the stop for 90 degrees which worked out fantastic. Thanks for your help.
