These glass door hinges are ideal for anyone looking for a discreet and hard wearing way to hinge glass doors on a display cabinet, glass-fronted bookshelf, dvd tower, etc..
Capable of a maximum opening of 180 degrees and designed for a maximum glass thickness of 6.8mm, these sprung hinges will work on inset doors, and fixings will be concealed within the cupboard and not exposed on the outside.
They come as a pair, one for the top and one for the bottom, so one pair per glass door is required.
We highly recommend using these hinges with toughened glass for extra safety
Screws will need to be purchased separately for fitting: Varianta Wood Screws

Hi, guys. My name is Darrel and I'm head of the teach team here at LocksOnline. Thanks for taking some time to tune in and have a quick look at one of our product review videos. Now, we've put these short little videos together to be able to give you, our customers the opportunity to see the products that we have to offer in hopefully a little bit more detail, in the flesh, so to speak.
Today, I want to show you a glass door cabinet hinge that we have on our website. They are sold as a set. So, you would have one that would sit at the top of the door and this one here, for example, would be at the foot of the actual door itself. Now, this plate is what you would screw into the side of the cabinet, like that. Your actual glass door then would situate inside this groove here, as you can see. It'll take up to around about 6 millimetres of glass. The exact specifications are on there.
On the back here then, you have this screw that allows you to screw that in tight and that will then compress against the glass. Now, there is a slight rubberising to this particular screw here, so it is quite delicate, but it is obviously designed to be able to hold the glass into place.
One of the other distinctive matters of this particular type, as well. I have put a bit of weight on this, but there is actually a holding part here, that when the actual door comes in, it will allow you to clip this into place. I'm trying to do it because I don't have the actual strength of the actual door, but that now is actually closed and it will hold the door in it's closed position. So, therefore then, you don't necessarily have to have a magnetic catch or anything like that to have the door in its closed position.
As I try to open this now, it will probably be quite difficult there. I've pushed up now on my hand there. That will allow you then to open the door there. So you can see, hopefully that the camera can pick up, the way the would work there.
So, the actual part here, this is a pivot there, and this would sit on that there, as you can see. This part then we would screw to the inside of the carcase or the cabinet that you plan on utilising this on. What I will quickly do though, is I'll get you some measurements on this because it may be important for you to be able to check if it will fit in your particular application there.
So, your looking at the over-all-length there is around about 62 millimetres. The distance there, if you wanted to pause that there, you can see where all the fixing centres are in regards to the measurements. There obviously, the screws, the numbers are upside down. It's more towards me than you. It will give you an idea there as where those fixing centres will be.
The actual distance from there to the fulcrum, in other words, how far that would go out to the centre off the actual fulcrum there, is your looking at around about 36 millimeters from the edge of this all the way out to the actual glass that the hinge would actually sit there, as you can see there. So there you go, guys. They're sold as a pair. One sit to sit at the top and one to sit at the bottom of the door.
