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

Item #
98% 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.

Note: Variable Overlay Hinge #43870 does not include caps

Rockler delivered a great customer experience all around. We will definitely be back for more. Great advice from sales associates, phone help during our efforts to install the soft- clise hinges, and the product works great. Cabinets close with a mere touch, silently and gracefully! We love them.

Woodworking Experience:
Works well. Recommended
Get the drilling jig for these and they are a no brainer. Highly recommended. Soft close works fine if somewhat slowly. Switching one of the two soft close switches off didn’t work to change the speed. Only made them not close at all.

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'm replacing my cabinet hinges and I have a 1/4 " overlay if I buy the 3/8" overlay is there enough adjustment to make them work?
john n on Jan 24, 2017
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
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.
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.
Will the Kreg Hinge Jig work for these hinges?
John M on Nov 8, 2018
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
Can the soft close device be added to certain hinges after they are already installed?
Haroldrw on Aug 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: To my knowledge, the soft close part of the hinge is an integral part of it and there is not an aftermarket add-on for a retrofit for existing hinges. Soft close hinges are not that expensive so I would recommend just replacing them completely. That way you know that you are starting with a device that was designed around a specific purpose.
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

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!
Can I uses this hinge for a frameless cabinet?
Dan D on Sep 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Those hinges will only work on a face frame cabinet because the hinge attaches to the edge of the frame.
How to remove cabinet door with hinge like this for repainting?
Amanda B on Jul 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: There is one screw in each hinge that removes the hinge from the cabinet frame and then two into the door. Really simple with a screwdriver or a small impact driver. Just be somewhat careful not to get too much paint in the hole bored in the door or it could be hard to get the hinge back into the hole when re-installing.

The screw to remove from the frame is the middle one of the three you can see in the picture for this hinge. The other two are for adjusting the hinge.
We recently painted our cabinets, they had Blum hinges. We want to change them out to soft close hinges. How do we know what size to get?
Jenny S on Jun 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: If they’re Blum you may be able to get the soft close inserts that will fit in your existing hinges. That would by far be the easiest.
I have 1" overlay cabinets, is there enough adjustment in the 3/4" overlay hinges to make them work? They really should tell you how much lateral adjustment there is...
Shane P on Jun 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: You need to get the proper size hinge, the 3/4" will not have enough adjustment for you.
how many hinges are in a set, it says it comes with 1 hinges, and pictures shows 2, is it a pair of hinges or a singular hinge?
randy s on Apr 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I set = 1 pair. or 2 hinges per pack.
Can hinges be purchased in bulk?
Beverly on Jun 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: That you'd have to talk to Rockler or another supplier about. Rockler doesn't list a reduced price for large quantities.
will this work with a framed glass door?
Ed R on Jun 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I don't see why it wouldn't. You would just need to be sure your door stiles are wide and/or thick enough for the required hinge pocket to not encroach on glass, taking into account how much overlay you want, and be sure you have some meat for the hinge screws. For example for the 3/8" overlay, the hinge cup diameter plus space from the edge is 39 mm, and the cup is 11 mm deep. You would have to be sure where you mount your glass, either captured in a groove or rabbet on the back, is farther in than 39 mm. The screws on the door would be 30 mm from the edge. I would say if you are doing 2-1/4" wide or wider stiles and rails you would be OK. One possible negative is that you would be able to see the part of the hinge that screws to the inside of the face frame through the glass, depending on your viewing angle. The installation instructions for these were pretty good.
