I bought the door button with the spring, too. Can't use it because it won't apply enough pressure. I'm looking at the door button from the link the OP posted and that looks like it might work.
Our lid is attached with a piano hinge and opens with the assistance of a gas spring. The gas spring is there because the lid is made of butcher block and weighs 20lbs. Having that lid come down on your fingers would be .... unpleasant.
