"Putting hinges on things always annoyed the heck out of me until I used these. Simple to use as you don't have to drill the main body of them them in to the cabinet. The movement is similar to other kitchen cabinet hinges so the movement of the door allows a snug fit between wall and door. Overall an excellent buy and there isn't a DIYed cabinet in my house that doesn't use them!"
"Once you have figured out how to mount them, they work reasonably well. Why is not possible to include a simple guide to show which way round they are supposed to be mounted plus and the the distance from the edge of the carrier & the door?"
"These are what you need for kitchen cabinets if you don't have or want the special tool for cutting in sprung hinges, or if you've made a cabinet of material like plywood or blockboard or even ordinary timber. The price is very reasonable and the product works well, so long as you know how to make it work. But there's not a scrap of information on how to do that. Initially I wasn't sure even which side went on the door. Then I didn't have a clue how far into the door to attach the hinge. I had to mount the hinges on scrap wood to experiment - a process that took about half an hour. Then it was easy. If Screwfix are going to sell these to DIYers, they seriously need to include a brief set of instructions. Otherwise "Easy Mount" is not quite how I'd decribe them."
"Snappy if you're using them on a small door as I was. I had to remove the spring units- which just push out- and then they were fine. I didn't need them to self close/open I wanted them to stay where I opened them to- which they do, now."
"No instructions as to how to fit. No fixing screws. Screw holes not countersunk and too small to allow decent sized screws. After I figured out how to fit and the measurements required, I was still left with slightly out of line doors (row of 4 cupboards) and these hinges offer no up/down adjustment at all, and only minimal left/right.
The reason I bought these was because my carcasses were half the width of my doors and to fit standard hinges would have required cutting the fitting holes unfortably close to the edge of the doors. As it is, these hinges didn't solve the problem and I had to double up the carcasses to get the doors to clear each other when opening. I still had to leave a larger gap between the doors than I would have liked, or required with standard fitting hinges.
I think these are the worst hinges I have ever had the displeasure of using and will be replacing them with standard hinges in the near future.
They may be ok for one standalone cupboard, but avoid if you have 2 cupboards up against each other. One final note - I simply could not get 18mm thick doors to clear each other with these. They were ok up to 15 mm, although still very difficult to use."
