A few of the men in my congregation make faith chests to give to babies when they are baptized. We make them mostly of plywood and band the edges with oak veneer. We like these hinges because they screw into the face of the box as well as the end grain on the side of the box. We feel this is far more secure. After trying several other types of hinges we have been using these exclusively for over five years.

Worked perfectly for the project I was using it for.

I am very pleased with these hinges, easy to mount and alignment is a snap. I will be using these hinges on all my display cases, both the side opening & the top opening where I plan to use the torsion type.

We have an antique trunk we use as a coffee table/toybox. The old hinges finally rusted and broke apart....because of the odd way the lid fit together regular hinges would not work on this trunk. Started searching the internet and after a few failed hinges we found Rockler. These flange hinges fit our antique trunk like a glove....we are so happy we can hide our son's toys again!

I installed 3 of the hinges on a chest I am making for my daughter-in-law along with the soft down lid closer. They all work really well and were easy to install. I was unable to find the type hinge I needed locally and ordered them through the internet. I find that if I need an unusual or special hasrdware part I can usually find it through Rockler. Keep up the good work.

I used these hinges on a blanket chest that gets a lot of use. The only problem was when it was overloaded the hinges were stressed to the breaking point. No fault of the hinges. Excellent choice for this type of application.

I installed these hinges on a toy box I made for my new grandaughter and coupled with two of the "back mount" lid supports, everything works great.
