What kind of hinge needed for kitchen cabinet?


Hi Everyone

I need your assistance - what is the name of the hinge that I need for a kitchen cabinet where the door will hinge from the top and open up? I need it to stay open when it is opened? And where can I buy it?

Thanks for your help.

you will need to order online. Stores do not carry these items. This site and some like it is where all DIY cabinet makers and woodworkers get their supplies. They are very reliable. You get the shipments very quickly.

Rockler is great!

If you can get to a Rockler store with a hinge as a sample, they can match just about everthing from the cataloges they have there. There are many different dimensions for reveals and set-backs. This insures a confident match. If it is not in stock, they can get it and possibly send it to you.

I have about 12 doors with 30 year old hinges, so I bought a couple extra since I may them again.

Believe it or not, a marine supply and restoration store/catalog may have this also. Last thing we needed on a sailboat, in most cases, was door swinging left/right and clipping us in the forehead so when I restored a couple of old cuties, I made the switch. The gas/hydraulic cylinder hinges kept everything up and out of the way, in the worst of weather, or the most tense of races until we were ready to close them.

Had these hideous left/right swinging doors in my tiny galley kitchen the first NYC apartment. Always seemed to be open with a corner right at my eye level. Lucky I did not lose an eye! Wish those doors had opened up and had a positive hinge system with built in latch mechansism like you have in mind.

You would need a hinge and a lid support. The least expensive way to do this is to use a butt (leaf) style hinge or a piano hinge, or a euro hinge that is free swinging. I've used the adjustable gas/air type spring supports, and found the mechanical types are more reliable.

For a lid support THIS HARDWARE lets the lid to lift up and lock. Lift again, and it returns down.
