Product Reviews:
Review Star RatingsGreat hinge application for a bench
by: Brian Scott   ✔Verified Buyer      from: Pompano Beach,, Fl      on: November 24, 2021
 Much better approach to hinging a bench seat compared to a piano hinge and the spring-loaded hinges are a nice assist for opening and closing. Measurements in the installation diagrams are accurate for the hole drilling. If you're using MDF for the top, these special varianta screws would appear to be best choose and they don't come with this hinge order so add them in on your order with the appropriate length of screw for the thickness of your top. All and all very pleased.

 I used this for a window in my greenhouse and works great


Review Star RatingsWorking hinge, no blue spring
by: Tom o   ✔Verified Buyer      from: Tillamook, Or      on: March 9, 2021
 Spring is the same color as the hinge. Was planning on the blue spring for finished look. I had trouble finding a hinge that would work on storage bench lid with no reveal up against the wall, this is the hinge for the job. Took a second to orientate it with no information in the packaging but referencing the description on the web page got me straightened out.


Review Star RatingsPerfect bench hinge
by: Gabe   ✔Verified Buyer      from: Seattle, WA      on: February 22, 2021
 Used these for an L shaped walnut bench I built. Had pretty tight reveals and the angle of these hinges was perfect to open the lids against the wall without touching it and let it sit in the open position. The springs are pretty easy to remove, which is necessary for installation, and in my case I didn't end up using the springs at all because my bench tops weren't that heavy.


Review Star RatingsNo instructions
by: James Mooney   ✔Verified Buyer      from: Bangor, Ma      on: January 21, 2021
 Works excellent, but zero instructions


Review Star RatingsPerfect hinge and lid support!
by: Medina   ✔Verified Buyer      from: League City, TX      on: August 6, 2020
 I needed a hinges and lid support for a storage bench that was going against a wall. This worked perfectly! The lid weighs about 17 lbs, so I opted to get the larger 12kg hinges. When the hinges arrived and I tried to move it by hand, I was worried that the spring was TOO strong and there would be closing/opening issues. But when I installed the pair... they worked like a charm! The dimension drawing was a little work to figure out but a quick little mock-up with scrap wood and TA-DA!!! GREAT BUY!

Review Star Ratingsexcellent
by: David E Rickels   ✔Verified Buyer      from: WICHITA, Ka      on: June 3, 2020
 I've used this hinge on toy boxes and on a 5'X 3' storage box on my son's deck. It worked well. The last order, I planed to sue them on the top's of storage compartments on my boat. They didn't work. Not the hinge fault. One of the hinges had to be at an angle to the other. This forced them to bind when closing and the lid not close. MY Bad. If you keep them parallel the work great.


Review Star RatingsGreat hinge for a bench
by: CA   ✔Verified Buyer      from: Pittsburgh, PA      on: May 28, 2020
 Excellent hinges. They work great for our camper that has a custom bench seat. Holds the lid up perfectly so I can get supplies out without hitting my head on the seat part. Very easy to install even without instructions. I used the hinge detail on this website for the hinges. Measured and made a couple reference lines and screw them in with some flat gear wood screws. I'm going to buy another set of hinges for another bench seat.


Review Star RatingsGreat for my workbench top
by: James Lester   ✔Verified Buyer      from: Stevensville, MT      on: April 9, 2020
 Was concerned about the weight of butcher block bench top, but it does exactly what I hoped...provided a smooth assist and allows access to items and storage under the top. Thank you!


Review Star Ratingsworks great
by: Austin   ✔Verified Buyer      from: Van Nuys, CA      on: February 24, 2020
 I was building a bench, where the lid/seat was against the wall, so I couldn't do a hinge all the way against the back. So, I was worried because almost everything I was finding was more of a soft-close support than a hinge itself, except for these. They work perfectly, completely supporting the lid while also providing the function of a hinge. Plus they look great!


Review Star RatingsWorks very well overall
by: Miles   ✔Verified Buyer      from: Salem, OR      on: January 15, 2020
 I was glad to find these hinges to use on a built-in bench - they're much nicer than other options as they are completely concealed. I got the ones for a 12kg lid and the 16.5" x 48" x .75" ash bench top is barely heavy enough to keep it down. I'm hopeful that with a little time it will work perfectly. I am a little disappointed in how far out the bring the lid as it makes the access into the bench a little small. And I think the installation diagram could be a little more clear. But I would still purchase these hinges again if the need arises.


Review Star RatingsGreat alternative to a piano hinge
by: James Kusz   ✔Verified Buyer      from: BERKELEY, CA      on: January 14, 2020
 Although there were no instructions, I did with an effort install the hinges and bench seat. Once you work through the installation, it is easy to use and will be my top choice in the future for this type of application. I think they should have a video of the installation to help other cabinetmakers. First install the hinge as described and do a test seat to get a sense of what is necessary.


Review Star RatingsSolid product part2
by: Jason Ryan   ✔Verified Buyer      from: Omaha, NE      on: December 20, 2019
 No issues product works as expected. Solid design. It would be nice if it came with some directions. It was a little work to figure out where to mount the hinge. Pretty much the same review as the 8kg spring.

Review Star Ratings2nd pair
by: Dan O   ✔Verified Buyer      from: Granby , CO      on: January 22, 2019
 I have used these before and are perfect for that built in bench seat.


Review Star RatingsNice hing
by: Mike   ✔Verified Buyer      from: Spokane, WA      on: May 29, 2018
 Supports well, if you have a bench not square, your lower edge corners will stop the bench from opening fully.

Ask a questionIs it common for these hinges to become loose after continued use? We built a bench with a lid to store shoes in our mudroom so it gets used daily. We are noticing that there is now considerable play in the hinges and the lid does not close all the way now. It sticks up about 1/4 inch..   - Asked about product HA-643.01.525
 AnswerThe max weight per pair for this fitting is 26 pounds. If you are using a panel that exceeds the max and is used as frequently as every day, this can cause the hinge to not function properly.
