Hi, please see image. Is there a way to remedy this? You'll see the lid stopping short of closing and the type of hinges on the back. Also, the lid stays open but too short of all the way back so that's an issue as well.

Thanks!

There is a tension adjustment screw at the base of the hinge that may help.

I've had the same problem with some Weber Knapp hinges before. They look about the same as those. They have a screw/spring tensioner under the bottom of them. Alas, I never figured out how to make it better. Too loose and the door flopped. Once I got it tight enough for the lid to stay up, it wouldn't close all the way.
