"I purchased these hinges together with door handles for my doors upstairs. The hinges are the ultimate in chrome. They look good, perform excellently and I'm going to do the same downstairs. Brilliant!"

Review 2 for Double Phosphor Bronze Washered Hinge Polished Chrome 76 x 51mm Pack of 2
"I bought these hinges to replace some rubbish plastic ones fitted to some domestic "veneered" doors. I always use washered or ball bearing hinges now, so these seemed OK. The problems sarted as soon as I opened the package. Problem one was fact that that the hinges were so tight that it needed a screwdriver just to open them up. Problem two was the inline screw holes which from past experience usually split the wood, which they did, despite using a hinge sinker and pilot holes. Problem three was the supplied screws. One look told me not to use them - Philips heads and threads more like self-tappers. I ran a Pozidrive screw though first before fitting the chrome plated screws, but sure enough, one of these weak, over-long screws sheared off, leaving no alternative but to skew in a non-matching Pozi screw. Philips screws are popular in China, so I can only think that this where they came from. Despite all that, they look reasonably well, but don't think that this is some easy replacement job."

Review 7 for Double Phosphor Bronze Washered Hinge Polished Chrome 76 x 51mm Pack of 2
"These hinges are very good quality and are consistent in specification and are easy to install.
The one big problem that lets them down is the supplied screws. They are soft and break easily, especially in hardwood, even drilling a good size pilot hole will not stop them from breaking and the phillips head turning out.
Spoilt the ship for a pen'th of tar come to mind."
