Hi,
I've just had a unit fitted from B&Q and I used the 110 degree soft close hinge as below

http://www.diy.com/departments/cooke-le ... 263_BQ.prd

My unit is next to a wall so could really do with stopping at 90 degree, but B&Q don't see 90 degree, is there any way I can stop them opening so far and bashing the wall?

Many Thanks

Steve

Put a stay on or just be careful when you open the door.
I'm pretty sure you get 90 degree hinges from B&Q tho.

The only 90 degree hinge I know is the lay on type concealed hinge see http://www.manddonline.co.uk/index.php? ... ts_id=3168
Fitting a pair of these would do what you want but it would leave the door hinge mortices exposed. You can buy push in plastic covers but this might be tricky to match up your door colour.

Thanks, I can't see anything on B&Q web page but I'll email them, but they don't try too hard to answer people ::b

What do mean by a stay? And how to fit

That hinge looks more like 180 degree opening in the link picture?

te amazon ones you linked not designed to fit at 90degree closed so wont fit,
if you look at the data image it shows the fixing plate screwed on the back of the panel next to it

I know absolutely nothing about hinges as such but I happen to be browsing for something else and came across this; http://www.toolstation.com/shop/Ironmon ... ung/p13965

I don't know if it is any good for what you want but I thought I would pass it on anyway

Good luck
Mike

Please be careful, most hinges described as 90 degree are actually 105/110 degree and this is just a description, Hettich do some 105 degree soft close that you can also attach a limiter to.
