I have 8 of these in my RV cabinets and I really like them. Once you get used to opening and closing them, they are really convenient.

Great hinges.
After building custom cabinets for the kitchen I tried these hinges for the very top cabinets. They worked great and were easy to install.

Woodworking Experience:
Amazing piece of hardware
As stated, this is quite the hinge. It is a bit fidgety to properly line up, at least it was for me, but they work very well as long as you remember to treat them right, mostly by lifting the lid enough to release the catches before trying to close them

Woodworking Experience:
Useful, but awkward
This hinge works fine for cabinet doors as shown in the catalog. However, its operation is not intuitive, and people attempting to close the cabinet without knowing how the hinges work will tend to push down rather than lift and drop. This can lead to bent hinges or other damage - ask me how I know.

Woodworking Experience:
Not up to Rockler standards.
Was a little disappointed compared to most Rockler products. The hinges take up a LOT of space inside the cabinet. Also the latching mechanism is a little iffy. Sometimes it catches; sometimes it doesn’t. You have to fiddle with it each time it opens

Don H on Mar 1, 2019
I have 4 cabinets in my 5th Wheel Toy Hauler... They are over head bins where the current factory installed hinges do not keep the cabinet door up when opened which is extremely inconvenient... I purchased there singles to correct the issue.
DENNIS P. on Feb 12, 2019
Because the people who installed our cabinets didn't think to use lid-stay hinges on our overhead bin. And I didn't know enough to suggest it.

How much weight can this hinge support?
John G on Jun 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: they could not support a 3/8 x 22" x 42" door. They actually failed, bent
how to do you adjust these? Have in my RV on five doors. After about a year, two of the doors do not close all the way, stopping about 1/4 before closing.
Steve B on Jan 9, 2018
How much weight can each hinge support? I am considering using them for a 12x21.5 3/4 in think mdf "door."
joseph t on Jan 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I believe they hold at least 10 to 12 lbs. of weight. My doors are solid maple wood. Hope that helps.
Does the 66621overhead bin hinge allow the door to slam shut or is it a soft close?
paul b on Apr 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Definitely not soft close, but there is no spring-load closure either. My application uses a cabinet latch, and I still need to press to latch the door closed.
Do you have a hinge for the same application (overhead door) that works on a face frame with inset doors?
Brian M on Mar 19, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure why Rockler wants me to try to answer this question. Mine are used on a fully overlapping door on a face frame cabinet, but I have the feeling I could adapt them to inset doors. Might take a spacer of some kind. I just haven't tried it. It's a very interesting hinge, and I love it in the application I'm using it for. But I would think Rockler would be in a better position to actually answer your question than I am.
Is there installation instructions, that I can view prior to purchase?
Tim R on Oct 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Tim - I think this is the installation document you are looking for...
What size and length of screw is provided?
Tim R on Oct 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Dear Tim. Sorry I can not help you but it should be in the description of the hinges. Good luck. Mary
