Blum Face Mount Compact Hinge with Blumotion
- Compact One Piece European hinge with built-in Blumotion.
- This hinge is special in that the mounting plate side of the hinge mounts on the face of the cabinet face frame instead of the edge of the cabinet face frame. (See the support information below for an installation image).
- This hinge works for doors which have an overlay of 1-3/8" or greater.
- Blumotion is Blum's soft-closing mechanism which allows the cabinet door to close softly without banging.
- This hinge features:
- an overload safety feature (protects the soft close mechanism if the door is slammed).
- deactivation switch (for small or light doors, one of the hinge may be deactivated for less dampening action)
- When changing hinges on your cabinet door, it is necessary to change out all of the hinges so that you do not have different types of hinges on the same door. Mixing non-Blumotion hinges on your door will cause the door to bind as they have different pivot points and articulation.
- The cup depth required for this hinge is a minimum of 7/16".
- Hinge is 6-way adjustable after installation.
- Hinge comes with dowels and screws for the door side of the hinge. Dowels may be discarded if not needed.
- Optional Items:
- Screws for the cabinet side are not included but are offered for purchase during checkout.
- Order 2 each of our SKU 652360 for each hinge ordered.
- A Restriction Clip is available for this item. The restriction clip (our SKU 268765) stops the door from opening wider than 86 degrees. This is valuable if the fully open door hits another cabinet, glass door, TV screen, etc. The restriction clip is offered for purchase during checkout.
