Alacoque. Door Hinges. September 14th , 2017.

Door hinges are one of the most vital parts of home architecture, yet they have been taken for granted by us. If it werent for hinges, then opening your doors, cabinets and car doors would become a hassle. Door hinges may have been invisible to you throughout your lifetime but after reading this article, you might want to give them some serious thought. Without door hinges, a mere act of going to the bathroom would require so much effort, that you want to go to open the door well in advance, as opening and closing of the door would be a painstaking task.

There are several types of door hinge available. The most common is the butt hinge. This consists of two flaps with screw holes attached by a pin or a rod. To take the door down all you would have to do is remove the pins. You can choose to add finials or balls to the pins for a decorative touch. Garage doors are usually attached with T-hinges. Shaped like the letter T the horizontal part is attached to the door frame while the vertical part is attached to the door. These hinges can be plain or ornamental and lift up rather than out. If you have folding doors you might use a Soss hinge. Named for its inventor this door hinge is recessed into the door edges so when the door is folded it is completely concealed. It must be installed exactly or it will not work.

While wood doors are generally able to be held with two hinges (unless they are very heavy wood or oversized door), if you have a steel door you need to make sure the hinges are strong enough to hold it. This means you may once again want to go with three door hinges, instead of the traditional two, for the extra stability they will afford. If you hear a squeaking door sometimes its not that it needs oil its that its too heavy for the two hinges its being held by and needs a third one.

Today the best place to shop for hinges is not the local blacksmith or even the hardware store. It is online. Only by shopping online will you be able to see the vast selection of cabinet door hinges available as well as be able to compare prices, styles and finishes. So dont drag yourself all over town instead shop from the comfort of your own home with the click of a button. But hinges are one of the most common types of cabinet door hinges available. They consist of two leaves or flaps with screw holes that are held together by a pin. The flaps are recessed into the door and frame so when the cabinet is closed all that is visible is the hinge. The pin can be outfitted with balls or finials for a decorative touch.

Another related lefty-righty question is: Does it really matter if you mix up right- and left-hanging cabinet door hinges? Not usually. Most door and cabinet door hinges can masquerade as each other if you rotate them 180°. The pins will drop in the same way and everything. In rare cases, the pin only goes in one way, the cabinet door hinges plate is shaped or decorated to only look right on its right (or left!) side. If in doubt, ask a contractor or cabinetmaker. Tip: If you are going to take your old doors or cabinet doors off, refinish them, and put them back on, I suggest labeling each of the cabinet door hinges as you take them off. In your kitchen for example, the top left-hanging hinge on the first cabinet on the east side of your kitchen could be marked: TLE1. That way everything will line up exactly as it did before you took them down.
