Hinges work fine but
Posted February 2, 2014
I have been wood working for years now and am building cabinets for our home. I bought these hinges and the picture shows the same hinge 4 times so it is hard to tell what hinge I what. I got it figured out ok. I did not install the hinges according to the instructions. They call for all of the hinge receptacles to be drilled into door 1, I set the hinges in each door and they work fine. I was quite frustrated with the very poor instructions.

I am a user, not a carpenter so my observations are from a standpoint of someone who has to live with them. As a technology matter they may be the bees knees but I had to ask to have them taken out. You really need to pay attention to what kind of lazy susan you have inside the cabinet. These hinges are clunky and take up quite a bit of space and thus reduce the usable cabinet opening. If you only have to reach your hand in and get something small out off a lazy susan, it would be fine but if you have a carousel with recycle bins in there it makes the job difficult or impossible, especially when they are full of recycling. Also, having just two hinges between the doors leaves an unsightly gap, whereas a piano hinge looks and performs beautifully between the bifold type doors.

These are excellent hinges. The instructions on the other hand could use a big of improvement. I've never installed these before so I had to go back to the Web site a couple times to review the picture. It would have been nice to have some better instructions. Otherwise, the hinges are well made and extremely adjustable.

The hinges themselves are of excellent quality, and serve our purpose perfectly. The only issue I have is with the installation instructions, which take some concentration to figure out, but more importantly, they are just plain wrong in one important step, where they tell you to drill the four cup holes in Door 2, where they really mean for them to be drilled in Door 1 of the illustrations.Otherwise, we are very pleased.
