4" x 4" Mortise Spring Hinge with 5/8" Radius Corners - Single Hinge
Good product, slightly thicker than standard hinge
These matched the pre-cut mortised shape of my original hinges perfectly. However these hinges are a few millimeters thicker than the hinges I had, so after fitting them on my door the door would rub against the jam or not close at all. The fix to this was fairly easy, I just notched out the mortise a little more allowing the door to close without rubbing. I have tall metal external doors with 4 hinges, so I went with 3 spring hinges on each door, leaving the top original hinge. They worked perfectly for our application (doors closing automatically to prevent indoor cats getting out). Once installed, it is very easy to adjust the tension on the hinges to get whatever level of resistance you like. Overall very happy with the product and Build.com, I would have given 5 stars if it wasn't for the fact I had to get out the hammer and chisel.

These spring hinges are effective. The hole pattern is what I need to replace existing hinges with and is not common. Two hinges are required to be truly effective. Beware: the hex hole is easily stripped by the Allen wrench. Hold it squarely, securely, and proceed with caution.

Spring loaded hinges
The new hinges I purchased replaced builder grade hinges on the man door into my garage. The new hinges were much easier to "load" than the originals and seem to be performing well!
