Great value

" I've only just fitted these hinges so I've no idea about reliability but I suspect they'll be fine. They weren't quite a direct swap for the originals but I didn't really expect them to be. The originals had a metal locating 'V' at the top, these have a plastic 'V' which being thicker meant the window sits lower in the frame. Re-drilling the window was all that was needed for a perfect fit "

Minor adjustment to install
7 Oct 2013
By charlie13

" As per previous review the 13.5mm dimension refers to overall stack height of the hinge. The actual width of the bars is something like 16mm but can't remember exactly and I didn't write it down when I measured them before install. The design of the bar that mounted into the groove on the opening window meant the mechanism rubbed against the frame as it moved, so i had to shim it out slightly but other than that they were a doddle to fit on to a small upper window. The hole positions were different from the original hinges, but as these were all fitted with self-tapping / self-drilling screws this wasn't an issue. "

Its a Friction Hinge
13 Mar 2013
By Expandyman

" This hinge was the same size as the pair I was replacing. 262 x 13.5 deep in some aluminium frames. The only difference being the hole positions were all different requiring the frames to be drilled.. There was a very brief sheet with mounting instructions provided, which could ideally a little more comprehensive. Anyway after sucessfully fitting, the window opened and closed just as a window should. Just ordered two more sets. I will come back in 10 years and write up about their reliability. "

beware the size

By anotherdiyer

" These are fine, BUT note that the 13.5mm dimension is NOT the width of the hinge - so it's not suitable for the older-style 'slim' window tracks. Screwfix are aware of this (Sept 2012) and I hope they make it clear on the website/catalogue. "

Not Good

" I would not recommend this because I'm having to return it, the screw holes were all in the wrong place, and to make it fit I would have had to drill within 1mm of another hole. "

Useless Item
1 Nov 2012
By Sugref
, Milton Keynes
" I bought this to replace a worn existing hinge pair. I had to return twice to Screwfix, because for the original order and the first replacement, one hinge was manufactured the wrong way round.
On trying to fit them I then discovered that the end section is much fatter than the existing, therefore no use "
