Door Hinges. Wednesday , September 20th , 2017 - 07:08:13 AM
Another related lefty-righty question is: Does it really matter if you mix up right- and left-hanging cabinet door hinges? Not usually. Most door and cabinet door hinges can masquerade as each other if you rotate them 180°. The pins will drop in the same way and everything. In rare cases, the pin only goes in one way, the cabinet door hinges plate is shaped or decorated to only look right on its right (or left!) side. If in doubt, ask a contractor or cabinetmaker. Tip: If you are going to take your old doors or cabinet doors off, refinish them, and put them back on, I suggest labeling each of the cabinet door hinges as you take them off. In your kitchen for example, the top left-hanging hinge on the first cabinet on the east side of your kitchen could be marked: TLE1. That way everything will line up exactly as it did before you took them down.
Pivot hinges are made for overlay doors which are doors that rest over the door frame. One is attached to the top and one to the bottom. Portions of each are then folded over and recessed into the door and frame resulting in a concealed hinge. If open cabinets are a pet peeve of yours then the ever popular spring-loaded or self-closing hinge is for you. Built with a small spring inside the door automatically closes after it is opened. Youll never be annoyed by open cabinets again.
Thank goodness that the hinge came to be. Some even say it is the second most important invention after the wheel. Today there are a wide variety of door hinges available. The best way to browse this large selection is to shop online. Dont waste time dragging yourself to hardware store after hardware store only to find they dont have enough or any of the kind you need. Youll find the best selection and the best prices online. Amongst all the different door hinges out there one of the most common types is the butt hinge. It is two leaves with screw holes held together by a pin or a rod. Both leaves are recessed, one end into the door and the other into the frame. When the door is closed all you see is the pin. With this type of door hinge it is easy to take the door down because all you have to do is remove the pin.
