Exactly as expected by: Sarah from: Brooklyn, NY on: August 24, 2010
These hinges operate exactly how I'd hoped they would- we used them for cabinet doors we installed in the dead space above a closet and the 75 or 90 degree setting choices meant the difference between knocking the hall light fixture and not. When you pull them out of the package they seem very strong and stiff, but once you get them in place they are smooth and sturdy. So glad I went with these instead of a complicated gas hinge- they take up almost no space and were quite affordable.
Operates nicely! by: Eric from: Dallas, TX on: July 2, 2010
I bought the Swingtop II Swing-Up fitting and was a little concerned it was going to slam the door shut/open when it was operated due to the large spring. I bought both left and right side with a spring figuring I could remove one spring if it was too strong. I was happy to find out it operates just like I wanted even though I left on both springs. It didn't come with a set of instructions, but it was still the easiest hinge I've ever installed.
