However, if you grabbed the handle with your right hand and still managed to open the door, window or lid, then you are face to face with a right-handed hinge. In this case, put a line through left-handed hinge. Write right-handed hinge"e.
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.
Pivot hinges are made for overlay doors which are doors that rest over the door frame. One is attached to the top and one to the bottom. Portions of each are then folded over and recessed into the door and frame resulting in a concealed hinge. If open cabinets are a pet peeve of yours then the ever popular spring-loaded or self-closing hinge is for you. Built with a small spring inside the door automatically closes after it is opened. You;ll never be annoyed by open cabinets again.
Ancient pivot hinges wore out and were subsequently reinforced with metal. Eventually they were made only of metal. As advances in metallurgy made metal stronger, they could carry heavier loads. They were also advancing by being downsized and used in homes; on doors, trunks, and boxes.
Makeup compacts open with them. Your cell phone flips open with a spring-loaded hinge. Clip earrings rely on hinges. So do eyeglasses. The laptop I am writing this on opens with two of them. Some purses have hinge clasps; others have straps attached with hinges. Toolboxes, briefcases, humidors. Kitchen tongs, can openers, coffee pots. Copiers have about a bazillion hinges; every time you open a door or flip a part up to free a paper jam, you are using a hinge or two.
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.
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.
