    I'm looking for a fixture to enable a cold frame lid to be held open. I don't know what they are called and so I cant find one anywhere.

    No, the piece does not have any hinge at the end. It is a flat piece of metal with an open middle, through which the bolt slides when the lid is opened.

    you may need one centrally or one each edge because the frame wont have any strength in the joints so if you lift up one edge the other end will probably warp and twist so will need to be lifted centrally
