Blum® Compact Soft-Close BLUMotion Overlay Hinges for Face-Frame

Space-saving hinge perfect for face-frame cabinets.
Item #
96% of 100
Now you can have the smooth, soft-closing action of BLUMotion in a compact, space-saving hinge - ideal for face-frame cabinets or any cabinet where clearance is an issue. With Compact BLUMotion, the damping mechanism fits entirely within the hinge cup, allowing use of a smaller mounting plate. Each hinge has a switch for turning the soft-close feature off for use with small doors, and each retains the 3-way adjustability of other Blum hinges. Compact BLUmotion hinges are available in five different overlays, ranging from 3/8" to 1-3/8". Restrictor Clips (#47937) are also available below for restricting the opening angle to 86 degrees. This prevents the door from banging into adjacent cabinets or cabinet doors.

Note: #43870 is a Variable Overlay Hinge that mounts to the front of a face frame and only offers 2 way adjustment. All Non-Variable Overlay Face Frame Hinges have 3-way adjustability.

Because it’s a Blum / soft close / 1/2 overlay

My customers all love the soft close hinges and these are a plus because they also are space saving. because hinge is tight to frame on cabinet allowing more space to be used inside cupboard

I have a hinge with Numbers 30.310-11.02 on the back of a plastic insert. Are those # indicating the type of hinge I have?
Rich H on Jun 24, 2015
This produce states that "hinges are available in five different overlays, ranging from 3/8" to 1-3/8"" What does the inches refer to? I am using 3/4" think boards
Steven G on Jun 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Overlay is the amount the door covers or overlaps the front of the cabinet on the hinge side of the door when the door is closed.
I am replacing existing hinges which appear close to 5/8" overlay. Should I order 1/2" or 3/4"? What is the adjustment / tolerance?
Michael T on Dec 19, 2016
What is diameter and depth of the hinge cup for a ¾ inch Blum soft close hinge?
Bob H on Apr 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The cup hole size is 35mm and the depth of the hole is 11mm
do not know what overlay I need?
kevin l on Aug 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: For a Face Frame Cabinet, the overlay is the distance from the inside of the frame to the cabinet door edge. Just draw a line on the outside of the closed cabinet door, then measure the distance to the face frame edge; that's the overlay.
What is the measurement from edge of door to center of hole for the hinge?
GARY K on Oct 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 20.5mm from the edge of the door to the center of the hole
Will the Kreg Hinge Jig work for these hinges?
NessinU714760826 on Nov 8, 2018
Is there a guideline for determining whether I need 2 or 3 hinges for any given door? Some of my doors, i.e. pantry, are rather large, while others are just tall, and I need to know if 2 hinges will be sufficient for those doors.

Thanks in advance!

m3kan1k on Oct 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The guideline I go by is on how much weight that the hinges can handle and how stable the wood is that the door is made of. If the door is tall but not heavy but the wood is not stable i use three or four on how big the door is to keep it from boeing. The blum soft-close can handle a heavy doors and shut softly compared to other brands that i used on lighter doors that there soft close can't handle and they just slam .
My face frame side is 7/8 inch thick,will these Blum hinges fit the frame or does it have to be 3/4 inch thick?
A shopper on Apr 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: YES, they will fit. In case they're a bit tight, just mark the area where the hinge flange will go & gently file that inside edge a bit.
can this be used with 1inch thick face frame material?
robert r on Aug 14, 2016
I used the "variable overlay 43870" so the thickness of the face frame didn't matter.
How does the restrictive clips work and can it work with other brands of hinges?
Gaynelle K on Nov 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The clips work well with the Blum hinges. They do not work with other brands. Make sure to install them before mounting the door to the cabinet. The clip must be installed while the hinge is in the closed position. The instructions weren't completely clear but the curved part of the clip lies on top of the hinge arm and the larger part of it is closest to the side of the cup next to the door edge. I found a pair of needle nose pliers worked well to seat both sides of the clip where the little tabs insert into the cup to hold it in place. The clip is a must have to prevent cabinet doors from banging into each other when doors open toward each other or the door is close to a wall and the knob or door will hit the wall possibly damaging the finish of the door or the wall.
What setting do I use for a 1/2 inch overlay door with the jig it jig. 3mm,4mm,5mm,or 11mm?
Craig B on Mar 3, 2017
are screws with each hinge?
hamilton m on Dec 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: They were with the hinges I bought. The diameter of the screw heads and the finish are important.
3/8 inch overlay too much. Need about 1/4 inch overlay. Is there a better choice for a concealed soft-close hinge?
Terry S on Mar 5, 2018
I hope that my answer can help. I made all of the kitchen cabinets and a bathroom stand alone cabinet using the Blum soft-close hinges for all of my doors including glass doors. I use Mark Summerfeld's easy bore jig to drill the holes for the hinges. The hinge attachment for the cabinet frame automatically lines up for attachment. The attachment is adjustable for the proper alignment of the door. I'm not sure that Blum has a 1/4" overlay available. I haven't had the need for one as the 3/8" overlay has not been a problem and have been pleased with the results. Paul
BILL F on Jul 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Bill, I used the hinges that are surface mount (don't wrap around the face frame) because my doors were a little wider than for the standard design hinge. That being said, there would be plenty of room for your pull-out drawers.
my door is 1 1/4" bigger than my opening, which would be 5/8" overlay, would you suggest going with 3/4 or 1/2 overlay?
Del C on Mar 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: That is best answered by considering what you want your doors to look like from the outside. Specifically how much face frame you want to see between and outside the doors. These hinges work great whichever size you choose.
How do you adjust the door alignment on these hinges?
Jimmm on Nov 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Here is a link to the instructions. All have the same adjustments
are there right and left handed hinges? I have two diifferent directions on the door mounted curved part blum soft hinge
Dr Phil on Mar 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: These hinges should work in either direction. I have purchased thesee hinges for several cabinets I have built.
Do you have to use 2 soft close hinges on small cabinet doors, or can you use 1 soft close and 1 non soft close?

Can you put a concealed hinge with an overlay on a door that is beveled to the inside?
Harold G on Sep 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I have never installed these on this type of door and I am assuming you cannot. These hinges where originally made to fit european style boxes without face frames to begin with, so to speak. And the demand for poker hinges brought about the different style and designs to fit face frames etc. Anyhow, I Always make a sample from scrap of wood with pocket holes when retrofitting new hinges to see how the hinge opens and closes on the frame. You can also take the door to Rockler and ask them if they kniw anything about thise hinges on hour type of door. Good luck, Juan
Can the soft close device be added to certain hinges after they are already installed?
Haroldrw on Aug 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes if you buy the same manufacturer’s soft close insert device. There are also external soft close devices available that don’t rely on any particular hinge.
Is there a way to add the soft close mechanism to existing hinges as long as the hinge is the same.....just not soft close
B B on Apr 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There is this adapter. Search rockler for blumotion hinge adapter item no. 25756

Is the term overlay referencing how far the door hangs over face frame of cabinet?
Eric P on May 6, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes. Franks answer is very complete.
can i use these with mdf door frames?
Brian M on Mar 28, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I would say yes. But you need to be very careful tightening the screws so as not to strip the holes. MDF is not as strong as hardwood.
How to adjust?
George A on Jan 1, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Its been a year since I put mine on but if I remember correctly the front screw moves the door closer and further from the frame. The screw on the inside on the frame n adjusts the door closer to or farther away from its partner door.
Planning on using these 1-1/4" overlay hinges on a cabinet against a wall. The cabinet has a 1-1/2" face frame. Is 1/4" enough room for door to open completely without hitting wall?
Jennifer B on Sep 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It should be no problem , but if you could just mock it up on a couple pieces of scrap to look like your cabinet side and that will tell you on ly take couple minutes and some scrap wood , and then you are sure they will work , hope that helps!
My kitchen was redone and Blulm hinges (soft close) were installed in all cabinets. One cabinet door suddenly became unable to open partially as set and I was not able to retrieve the contents easily. The hinges on this one cabinet were initially set to open only enough to avoid hitting the wall beside it. It was working perfectly up to recently. How do I adjust the hinges?
Carol W on Dec 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Usually there are screws in the cabinet (non door side) of the hinge that can be loosened & adjusted. Often all the hinges must be adjusted. Look for any obstruction in the door itself or even something shifting in the cabinet. The door itself will rarely expand or in the winter, contract with the seasonal humidity changes
My current hinges say "120" on the door piece What does that mean please? I'm trying to find soft close hinges to replace the old ones. What do I use?
Nina b on Oct 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hello, that is telling you the degree of your door opening.. For example, if your cabinet is next to and opens toward a refrigerator, the door will only open to 90 degree or slightly over... Your hinge will allow your door to 120 degrees... Hope that helped..
