Cabinet Butt Hinges

The plates have a series of screw holes for attaching the cabinet butt hinge to the cabinet door and frame. Standard sizes for cabinet butt hinges range from 3/4” to 3” high and open widths of 3/16” to 3” with custom sizes available upon request. Material options include brass, bronze and nickel with various finishes.
Knife Cabinet HingesKnife cabinet hinges are flat hinges that allow cabinet doors to fully open and lay flat against a neighboring cabinet. They are installed along the top of a cabinet door and are semi-concealed, with only the pin being visible when the door is open. The typical size range for knife cabinet hinges is 1/4” to 1/2” with an option for custom sizes. Material options include brass and nickel.
Loose Joint Hinges
Loose joint hinges, also called take-apart hinges or slip joint hinges, are used in removable door and lid applications. They consist of two metal plates joined by a loose center pin and allow a door to be easily removed after the hinges are installed. Types of loose joint hinges include block hinges, continuous slip hinges, flag hinges and weld-on bullet hinges. Sizes vary depending on style and material options include steel, stainless steel and aluminum.
