These simple ones were called pivot hinges and consisted of a post that fits into a ring or a socket. If you put a post on the top and bottom of each door and a socket in the floor and top of the doorframe, you have a simple door that swings open both ways. Other mountings of them stop the door at a certain point. An example of an ancient pivot hinged door with a stop is a drawbridge. Two massive pivot hinges were mounted on the bottom outside corners of the castle; chains raised the bridge into a door position which was then barred from the inside to hold it in place.
Whether you are re-doing your kitchen and need all new hinges or just replacing the hinges on one cabinet you should take a moment to admire the strength they give you. Hinges are generally eight to ten times stronger than the task they are assigned. So next time you open a door or shut a cabinet think how heavy that door would be without hinges to essential move it open or closed for you. Once you do this you;ll never take hinges for granted again.
Hinges come in many various forms, depending upon their designated use. Cabinet hinges and those on a door will be the main types that the ordinary person would encounter in their normal home life, but even narrowing the uses down to these two basic functions involves many different hinge types.
