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
, Huddersfield
"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
, surrey
"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

"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
, 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"
