Hinges are surprisingly strong. They can generally do eight to ten times the work they are assigned. So the door hinge puts the power of the Roman goddess Cardea into your hands. And the best way to see the biggest variety of door hinges is to shop online. Don;t drag yourself all over the city looking for that perfect hinge to complete your kitchen makeover. Instead browse the selection online and compare and buy hinges from the comfort of your living room.
Squeaks happen. They"re natural, but that doesn"t mean you have to live with them. When you first hear the squeaky door hinge, you need to decide what is causing it. Maybe it really does need some grease. Squirt a little WD40 in there and see if that solves the problem. If not, maybe one of the screws has come a little loose. Grab a screw driver and tighten them up to see if that makes a difference. Only tighten them as far as they need to go, don"t keep twisting thinking you"ll make it stop squeaking if you tighten the screw enough, that"s only going to hurt your cabinet surface. If these solutions don"t work, it"s time to go on a hunt for replacement hinges.
One of the most common types of hinge is the butt hinge. It consists of two flaps with screw holes held together by a pin or rod. It is most often used on doors and cabinets. Another common type of hinge is the t-strap hinge. This hinge is shaped like the letter T with the horizontal part attaching to the frame and the vertical part attaching to the door. This type of hinge is usually seen on garage doors and box or chest lids and can be decorative. It ranges in styles from colonial to art deco and beyond.
Over a glass of wine with friends, an architect friend of mine and I started talking about hinges. And yes, I know you are thinking what an exciting conversation that must have been. But when you think about it, hinges are everywhere and affect all aspects of our lives. In fact, you probably have at least five hinged items on your person or in your purse/attaché/backpack/briefcase. You might have less, but I think you;ll be surprised as you read on.
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 don;t drag yourself all over town instead shop from the comfort of your own home with the click of a button.
You are now ahead of the hinge game. If you want to learn even more about these items, you can use Internet search engines to dig up fascinating and little known facts on hinges. An example of such facts concerns the butt hinge. Not only does the butt hinge exist (really), but it is also available in two different varieties, the fixed pin version and the loose pin version. Beware of the trap that is so innocently being sprung before you. The fixed pin butt hinge means that you cannot remove the pin. The loose pin butt hinge means that you can remove the pin.
Most people only think about hinges when they are staring at a pesky, painted-over door hinge, trying to remove the pin so they can move a new piece of furniture into the room. But even then, the most attention the hinge probably gets is a few choice curse words. How poor we treat the hinge, especially since some historians consider it an invention on par with the wheel. The simple hinge has simply changed our lives.
