I was working on some bifold closet doors. The doors were somewhat heavy and had a reoccurring alignment problem.The center of the doors had three 3"X 1 1/2"hinges. I noticed that the hinges were wearing and slipping down from the load. I ordered a full length piano hinge to solve this problem

Can you cut these hinges to a short length?
A shopper on Apr 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Rockler does not offer any cutting services, however end user can cut this to any length needed using a metal cutting blade.
Do these brass finish hinges come with brass finish screw? if not, which screws do you have to fit?
A shopper on Apr 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: These hinges come with the proper screws
i plan a 6 foot tall workshop cabinate on casters -- sized 2' x 2' square made with 3/4 inch birch plywood and 4 shelves inside. Thinking about using the hinge vertically on door. the dor will have NO shelves just the weight of the plywood door panel. Will the weight of a 6' tall x 2' wide door of 3/4 inch birch plywood be adequately supported by the 1 1/2 inch piano hinge? Will 4 feet length be adequate or should i install full 6 foot length hinge? thanks
William S on Feb 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Do the entire length of the door. It will look so much better and you'll be proud of it, especially when another woodpecker looks over your cabinet.
Can the hinges be cut? ie: buy a long one and cut smaller ones to save $.
gary l on Oct 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, these can be cut and shortened. You need to do some other work to them after they are cut, They are best cut at a slot in the knuckle. I use a small belt sander to smooth the cut and round off the sharp points and remove any burrs. A file will also do the job. I shorten the pin by knocking it out a bit and cutting it with a pair or cutting pliers. Tuck the shortened pin back into the knuckle then lightly crimp the ends with a small hammer. Do a quick sanding or filing to remove any burs you created in the process. Close the hinge and spray a light coat of spray paint to the cut surface to keep it from rusting. Open the hinge and wipe away any excess paint that runs to the inside. When smoothing the ends try to keep them square so they will mortise well. It is a good way to save money on hinges.
Do the piano hinges need to mortised in or surface mounted?
Gary F on Nov 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: mortised would be better. If you don't mortise, then then when closed the door will sit with a gap equal to the thickness of the two sides of the hinge.
Is the 1.5" width the width when the hinge is flat & unfolded or is it 1.5" wide when folded up?
Twylia S on Aug 13, 2015
I need a strong hing to mount up and down not horizontal. It is to be used in a pantry for swinging out and will have can goods on each shelve. I think the shelves are about 12 or 14 inches wide and have 5 shelves so one door of shelves would have about 20 pounds total thinking one shelve holds 4 cans 16 oz ea times 5. So could these hinges support that weight?
Joyce H on May 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I used them for a cedar chest top and the were mounted horizontal. The top weighs at least 20 pounds but it is horizontal and shows absolutely no stress. I would not be afraid to mount them vertically as long as the wood would support the weight. I believe the hinge quality would handle it.
I have a beech chest 14.5" deep x 33.5" wide with a 20 lb. iid. Will these hinges support that much weight?
Ben W on May 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The metal is a very thin gauge and the hinge is quite narrow. I was not able to use it for my purpose because it did not seem to lack the strength I needed and because of the narrowness the screws were very close to the edges of the wood.
I'm planning a built-in cabinet with two doors, one atop the other, each approximately 4' x 3'. Will I be able to cut the hinges down to exact size with a hacksaw?
Jim K on Mar 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I ordered a 3' brass finished piano hinge and needed to cut about 1/8" off to make it fit for my project. The cut was successful. It left about 3/16" of the hinge pin and rolled part of the hinge.
Norm D on March 14, 2018
I need a piano hinge that’s 25” long and they run from 36-72 long. How do I get a smaller one?.
Michael M on Nov 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hack Saw to the size you want. Use a file to take off the sharp edges. Make sure to put the screws in a small ziplock bag and tape to the remaining hinge so you know where they are when you need them.
Are these piano hinges suitable for cabinets or just doors? I see that you can cut it and finish the ends, but are there other problems with using this hinge on a cabinet door?
Rachel T on Sep 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: When you Google "cabinet door hinges", most of the hinges shown don't look like piano hinges. I guess you could use them for a cabinet door but I don't think I would. Also, I was surprised that the one side of the hinge doesn't open all the way flush with the other side of the hinge in both directions - this made it a little difficult to decide how to mount it on the chest I made. I recommend going to a hardware store and playing with a piano hinge to see how it works before buying one.
I need to hinge a portion of an old oak interior door (probably 1896) since I've replaced the old wall tank toilet with one that sticks out further into the small toilet room (and no, a round bowl toilet wouldn't have helped the situation). Now the bathroom door can't shut inward. I can't do a pocket door, don't want to reverse the hinges for an outside swing, so I thought I could just make a hinged cutaway for a portion of the bottom of the 5 panel door so that it would clear the new toilet and be able to swing back for a full shut of the door. Will a piano hinge support that bottom portion of the door and if so, do I need to inset the hinge or just screw it to the top of the door panels? What size/heft of a piano hinge do I need, or should I just hinge on the one or two cross pieces of the door instead?
Jessie T on Aug 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Piano hinges come in 36" and 48" lengths. I assume you don't need a hinge that long. Also, I'm not sure how you plan to use a piano hinge on a 5-panel door where the thickness of the door changes. I would use regular hinges on two of the cross pieces..
Using on a 43" long lid, does hinge have to be full width?
Dave W on May 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It would not need to be. You could consider using a 36" length.
