Dampers clipped right on and I was in business. The make such a difference. Everyone should install these, if cabinet doors slam.

Woodworking Experience:
These hinges are easy to install and no more banging of cabinet doors. Combine these with some nice felt or rubber pads on the non-hinge side and you've got yourself a super-quiet closing door.

Great products - Although I bought both hinges and adapters- the slow close adapters did not fit my older versions of the hinges where I needed them!

Russell E on Jun 3, 2018
The existing cabinets were high end and the existing hardware was not slow close. My friend didn't want to risk replacing the existing hidden hinges and causing any damage to the cabinet. This was the best option.

I you are tired of cabinet doors that slam shut the blumotion hinge adapter is what you need. I like the way you get a nice soft close every time.
Michael M on Apr 2, 2017
An easy add-on to clip top euro hinges. Cost competitive with all in one soft close hinges. Can be quickly removed if desired.

How do I know whether I need the regular hinge adapter or the compact hinge adapter?
Dave R on Jun 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I honestly was unaware there are two different sizes of soft closure mechanisms. I have always used this one with good results. Your only consideration might be if the size would restrict what you plan to place in the cabinet. Otherwise I would use the larger because larger hardware tends to be more durable.
can i use just one per pair of hinges to get the soft close feature?
todd m on Jan 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: One soft closure works per cabinet unless extra large door. I installed one on pantry door that had three hinges and it closes nicely.
Are these hinges spring-loaded? (To help the doors close)
Bob B on Feb 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Bob, this ‘adapter’ clips to the is not a hinge......and I believe there is a tiny pneumatic devise in them that slows the door.
Is there an instruction for installation?
Jay M on Mar 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No instructions are included in the package. You have to go online to find them.
Will this work with...Rockler Hinge and Plate for 3/8'' Lipped Face Frame Doors...item #24964?
John R on Dec 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Sorry no, this would not be compatible with 24964
How do you put on the top clip part when they pop off?
C P on Apr 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: First, you need to ensure the metal spring on the hinge side of the soft-close clip is not bent or damaged. If all looks good you install it by tipping the front plastic part - the end which contacts the door as it closes, in toward the hinge while holding the back side out just enough to catch the protruding hook on the clip in the receiving slot on the hinge body. Pushing slightly forward on the clip to depress the metal spring you checked earlier, you then push the back end of the clip onto the hinge body and let go of the clip.
Do these work with Hettich clip top hinges?
Micah P on Jan 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Sorry no, these are specific to Blum.
Will this adapt to the 155 degree Zero Protrusion hinge?
