Very smooth, extremely soft closing action.

Overview

Smooth, whisper-soft closing action paired with an equally graceful appearance make the new BLUMotion hinges a standout for visual and tactile aesthetics. BLUM's engineers have managed to integrate a virtually invisible damping mechanism into the much-loved Clip Top hinge design, preserving all of the 3-way adjustability and clip-on ease of the original. No more rattling glasses and banging cabinet doors and no bulky apparatus on the outside of the hinge. In addition, each hinge has a switch for turning the soft-close feature on or off: perfect for adjusting the speed of the close. Switching off one hinge on smaller, lighter doors allows the same soft-close speed throughout your kitchen. Self-lubricating with a full 110° opening angle. Compatible with doors up to 1" thick. Inset Face Frame 110° Blum Clip-Top Hinges include sleek screw caps as well as hinge plates.

Note: Due to the new hinging action of the soft-close hinge, the original Clip Tops and Soft-Close Clip Tops may not be combined in the same door.

Shaun W from Medford, OR Posted January 5, 2012
I found these hinges to be easy to install and perform as stated. With the "soft-close" function turned on for both hinges I found the door to close almost too slow. No matter how hard you try to slam the door closed, the hinges take control of the motion and close the door, well, softly. I turned the function off on one of the hinges on each door and the motion was perfect. I liked the fact that Rockler included everything you need including screws and instructions. With the jigs from Rockler, sold separately, installation was easy. I highly recommend these hinges. I can't imagine not using this type of hinge again in the future! Thanks Rockler!

BRIAN G from Poway, CA Posted October 4, 2012
The design puts leverage against the mounting plate that causes the screws to fail. Did 3 doors and all 6 have pulled loose. It is just a bad design. Even when 1st installed you can see when you open and close the door the cabinet side bracket moves. It is simply the leverage from the 2" hinge itself applying side pressure against the mounting bracket. Bad design but now how do you possibly fix with installed done cabinets?  I have to build new doors and go overlay!

Guest from Scotts valley, CA Posted January 16, 2012
I am a builder and had these installed on my custom cabinets in my personal home. I have had nothing but problems with them. The face plate that mounts to the back of the face frame is too small and there is to much torque from the door closing and opening. Over time 2 years I have had to reinstall almost every hinge because they have ripped the screws out of the back of the face frame. This is a serious pain in the butt to fix, and I have had to end up filling the old hole with glue and wood to reinstall the screw so it bites again. They are also a nightmare to install where you have pullout hardware. If you don't install them before you do your pull out build out and install the hardware then good luck. There isn't enough room between the pull outs and the end of the hinge and its a nightmare to get screws in. I would never use these hinges again, they will cost you nothing but time and money and if you are a builder you will be going back over and over again to fix them. Currently I have about 10 more hinges to fix and I am dreading it.
