These simple little steel hinges are designed to provide a pivot-style hinge setup for glass doors.
Typically seen on glass cabinets such as bookshelves, dvd enclosures and display cases with glass doors, these are becoming increasingly popular due to their simplicity and long-lasting performance.
Suitable for glass panels up to 5mm thick, these hinges clamp the glass firmly making sure to eliminate any movement or slipping of the glass panel.
The maximum opening angle you could acheive with these is 110 degrees, giving you slightly more than the typical 90 degree opening.
Since these are designed to be fitted to the top and bottom of the side you wish to pivot, you will need two hinges (1 pair) per glass door.
They come with a plastic press-fit bush for inside the hole in your cabinet to allow these to pivot freely and smoothly with minimal friction whilst preventing damage to the timber of your cabinet.

Hey, guys. My name is Darrel and I'm head of the tech team here at LocksOnline. Thanks for taking some time to tune in and have a look at one of our product review videos. Now we're putting these short little videos together to allow you, our customers, the opportunity to see the products we have to offer in perhaps a little bit more detail than what an image and bit of descriptive text may offer you.
Today I want to talk to you about some glass hinges, smaller cabinet glass hinges that we have on our website. I have the black version here, but they also come in a chrome version as well. Now the idea is quite simple. You would put this into your cabinet. This is the ferrule that would actually hold the hinge in there, so you would put that into the actual cabinet itself, you would put one in the bottom, they come as a pair, and then you would also put one at the top as well and then you would slide the glass into there, and then you would basically just screw that up with this plate in behind so the screws don't actually touch directly, and that allows you then to clamp it all together and you have yourself a glass cabinet door.
You can imagine your DVD player or your stereo, et cetera, and you got a set of doors on it. Or perhaps a glass cabinet, where you've got some trinkets inside, and you want to be able to have a set of hinges for that. That is what they are really designed for. To give you some idea as to the maximum thickness of the glass that you can have . . . I'll screw this one up, since this one is already out. I have managed to pop out there is flush there, and then mount that in there like that. That now is the distance there you can actually mount the glass into. If I pop that in there like that, the maximum I'm getting there is just short of 7 millimetres, so I'm guessing 5 or 6 millimetres is about as much as you would want to be able to pop this into before you start struggling with the screws. The screws I have there are about as far as they will go.
There you go, guys. There isn't really much we can talk about with them. They are very, very formal application like that. That's the idea and that's the next pivot there, etc., obviously that would be on the inside. You would not necessarily see those. Those would be on the inside of the door.
So, there you go. If you need a bit more information on this product or any of the other products that we have on our website, by all means, pop us over an email, use the live chat that we have. Also, just give us a call. Either way, we would love to hear from you, and more importantly, we would love to see you as a customer. From me Darrell and all of us here on the team, thanks for taking the time to tune in. We'll catch you real soon. Bye-bye.
