I don't know why PDQ left hinges off most of the locker covers. They didn't cheap-out much. But they missed this one. Every time you need just one little think, off comes the cushion, the lid must be leaned somewhere... a big pain. With a hinge, lifting the lid just a bit to snag just one thing is reasonable.
I added hinges to my under-berth lockers some time ago, and it was a big improvement. They get used a lot more.
I added these drop-in trays to the salon lockers. A big help--commonly used and small items don't disappear into dark corners.
And now I've added hinges to the salon lockers. A big help.
- I didn't bother with the corner lockers (they won't open properly because of the backrests) or the cover over the charger.
- I didn't bother with stainless hinges. I did oil them lightly (Corr-Block) and I haven't seen any signs of rust. It's a dry cabin.

Drew over at Sail Delmarva, has installed hinges on his under-seat locker covers. This is an excellent idea!
