How do I adjust hinges?


How do I adjust the range of motion for the attached hinge? It opens too far and hits my wall constantly. How/can I adjust the hinge so it has more limited range? Thanks!

The adjustments on that hinge aren't for limiting the swing, the adjustments are for position of the door on the cabinet.

The hinges are sold with different degrees of opening - 105, 110, 120, etc. I don't have any idea of what those are.

But, you could change em out for new ones if you can figure out what the offset is.

Great information. What do you call these types of hinges?

European style hinges.
If there hitting the wall then someone messed up and did not add a spacer between the wall and the cabinet.
Cabinets are never mounted tight to a wall.

You're going to want a range of opening as close to 90 as possible.

That looks like a Blum compact, which I think 107 degrees is as close as you'll find to 90.

They do have a mini that goes down to 95 degrees... but I don't know that it'd swap out.

Page 56 of that brochure gives you all the ranges, too

you need a blum hinge restrictor clip order under 5 dollars unless you have to switch hinge out if they do not have one for the hinge you have

I'm having difficulty finding the exact kind of restrictor clip for my use. The video shows a soft close hinge. My hinges are not soft close. I'm not for sure of the manufacturer of my hinge to be able to source the exact restrictor that I need. Any ideas? I have contacted a few local wood working stores that are local to me and they have not heard of anything that restricts the door opening. Thanks!
