These hinges are a concealed up-and-out (or down and out depending on orientation) style hinge, allowing for flush sitting doors to be opened with a bit of a swing operation to avoid chafing, scuffing or jamming.
These have adjustment points too, allowing for a 3mm alteration in three directions.
The cup size is the standard 35mm, and are suitable for panels with a 45 degree mitred angle, a minimum thickness of 16mm and a maximum thickness of 22mm.
Because these hinges aren't sprung or restricted, you'll need to get yourself a flap stay or lid stay / restrictor arm to hold them in whatever open position you may require. You will also require screw fixings, which can be purchased from the Fixing Materials section further down this page if you don't have some already.

Hi, 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 quick look at one of our product review videos. Now, I'm putting these short little videos together to be able to give you, our customers, the opportunity to see the products that we have to offer and hopefully in a bit more detail, in the flesh, so to speak.
So today I want to show you a flap hinge that we have on our website. It's a flap hinge called mitred and this is the actual hinge here. Now, it's the type of hinge that has some unique properties in regards to how it works and how it operates. The idea is that it will actually throw away the actual door as and when it opens.
So if you were to look at that particular elevation and imagine that this is, say, situated in the carcase, let's assume that that's in the carcass and this is the door and the door's going to operate in this particular angle here. So as I open that up there, as you can see, the actual hinge is actually throwing away the door until it comes right up into it's ninety-degree position there like that. So that's the basic operation of the actual hinge there. So it's quite unique in respects to that, as you can see there.
So these particular type of hinges also, if I was to allow you to zoom in, if you could zoom in there, you can see that we have degrees of adjustment. There's a couple of mil adjustment on either side up and down and in and out on either side. So if you're slightly out on your measurements in regards to drilling your holes, then at least then you have the ability to fine-tune the actual hinge to make sure that it works as sweet as a nut, so to speak. So that's the idea of those particular measurements there.
So what I'll do very, very quickly, is I'll give you some sort of idea of the overall measurements of this. There is actually a data table on our site giving all the specific measurements, but very very quickly I'll get some overall measurements here. So the actual size of the hinge there is 20 millimetres and the actual size there is 65 millimetres. Those fixing centres there, just in case you were thinking of wanting to replace this there, is around about 52 millimetres fixing centres there. Now, the actual depth in which you have to put these into there is . . . we'll get in there roundabout 12 or 13 millimetres there in regards to the depth of the actual cutout that would be required to get these to work.
So, there you go, guys. Mitred is one of the products that we have available on our website. Sold as single units, so you may need a few depending on the particular application. So there you go.
If you need a bit more information on this or an of the products that we have, pop us over an email, or use the live chat. It's totally free. You can speak to me or any of the guys. Also, pick up the phone and give us a call. Either way, we'd love to here from you, and more importantly, we'd love to see you as one of our customers. So from me, Darrel, and all of us at the team, thanks for taking the time to tune in and we hope to catch up with you real soon. Take care now. Bye-bye.
