Rockler Tandem Door Hinge Set

Double your door storage with these Rockler exclusive Tandem Door Hinges!

Item #
92% of 100

As woodworkers, we always like to squeeze the most out of the limited shop space we have. This proprietary hinge set helps you do just that, effectively doubling the amount of on-door real estate available for tools and supplies. Once installed the outer door is opened to reveal a second inner door, both of which can be used for storage. Use pegboard in your door panels for neatly organized, dust-free hanging storage. Mount your most used tools on the outside, and lesser used tools on the inside. You can even mount them all facing inward for a cleaner look, and open everything up when it's time to work. One pair of hinges supports an outer door measuring up to 24''W x 36''H, along with its slightly smaller inner door.


  • Made from heavy-duty 12 gauge zinc-plated steel
  • Included catch plate keeps doors in place and helps support weight when doors are closed
  • Hinges are easily reversible for left or right mounting
  • 2'' space between doors allows most pegboard accessories to be used
  • Nylon bullet-style catches mount to bottom of cabinet
  • Detailed instructions and a mounting template are included for easy building and installation

Peg board cabinet
This spring I will be making a 4x8 peg board cabinet with 2x4 peg board double doors for my wood working tools. May try a French clear version on outer door. Still working on plans. May need three hinges per door due to size.

Woodworking Experience:
Excellent design
These tandem door hinges are great. They’re solid, well designed, and best of all, they’re fun to show off.
The instructions are very thorough and include a hinge mounting template.
My only complaint is that in following the sizing guidelines, my door ended up too short for the catch to hit, so now I have to force the door in for my bypassing pegboard doors to slide in front.
These things are great. If you have a deep cabinet, but em.
These are very heavy duty. I think they’re rated for about 30 lbs, but they feel much stronger.
Will open a full 180 degrees, but mine hits my garage door.
The standoff for the inner door leaves enough room (2.5”)to hang narrow tools.

Perfect for my small homeworkshop space. I am a home machinist and diver for 24 years. Have a lot of tools and the tandem dor hingle was a perfect solution. I can store a lot of tools and gears in a organized and compact space and access everything in a fast and ease way. I´ll order more two!

Wish I found these before I built my sliding door shop cabinet. I will use these when I construct my storage cabinet for my garage in Arizona.

Woodworking Experience:
Very nice.
I made a cabinet for all my trains. I used the hinges for doors to keep all My tools and it works great. The measurements need to be exact when setting up the doors. I would recommend this to anyone.

Needed for specific project
Doc D on Dec 15, 2019
I plan on building the sanding cabinet from the plans available from Rockler. I have a small shop and the double doors look like a great way to keep my sanding disks organized and easy to reach without having them spread all over the wall on pegboard.

I watched a YouTube video that had this product used in the project. I thought the hinge was a great idea and bought it to build the same project in the YouTube video.

This would work great for a small storage cabinet I'm building.

I want to increase my workshop storage - this allows me to have shelving and double the pegboard in the same footprint.
Chad M on Jun 3, 2019
Unique design, exactly what I needed for my tool cabinet build.
Silver Eagle on May 26, 2019
When the first step in any woodworking project is to back out the cars and move things to get to the tools, it's a small shop. This will be great for space saving where needed.
Andrew Z on May 21, 2019

Only tandem hinges on the market. A bit pricey but they work well. I recommend measuring the door-side hinges and the pulls rather than using the paper ones suppiled for a more accurate layout. Highly recommend the hinges, very heavy duty. Since the hinge is 1/2" I added 1/2" window insulation on the cabinet edges to help keep out dust. Awesome product.
Bob K on Feb 10, 2016
Easy access on commonly used small tools and space saver.

I bought them to make the wall cabinet you see in your add for them. They really work great and really gives a small shop a lot more wall space.

Wayne J on Nov 25, 2019
Rockler was the only place I could find this type of hinge and it is of great quality.
Erik L on Aug 26, 2019
what are the dimensions of these hinges? I printed the template but have no guarantee what scale it is. Before designing a cabinet using these I'd also like to know the space between the leafs when closed (assuming I use the 3/4" recommended construction thickness).
A shopper on Jun 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The leaf that goes into the cabinet is 4 1/2".
The top leaf is 4" (measured from the center of the pin).
The bottom leaf is 1"
The distance between the two doors, using 3/4" frames is 2 1/4".
Hope this is useful.
Do you have PDF plans to construct a wall storage tool cabinet that uses these hinges?
George on May 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Not at this time.
Love the hinges and will order if where can get the plan for the storage unit?
Jim R on May 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The size and style of the storage unit is somewhat flexible, however detailed instructions and a mounting template are included in the package.
The product description says I need 3 hinges for a door that's taller than 36" but why is this product only sold in pairs? Hey Rockler: how about you sell them individually as an add-on to the pair, or make a kit that has 3 hinges instead of just 2? I ended up buying three pairs of the hinges, I'll use 3 of the 6 hinges on this project and then just have to hold on to the extra 3 hinges in the hopes that I can think up some project to use them in the future.
Chico on Jan 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You could have purchased 2 pair of hinges, then installed 4 hinges on the door so that it holds more weight. That would allow for 60 lbs. of weight - less than you might put in a drawer with 60 to 100 lbs. slides.
