Door Stays & Restraints
Are your cabinet doors constantly touching or bumping into each other? If so, you have come to the right place. At HardwareSource, we make it easy to find cabinet door restraints that allow your cabinet doors to open vertically while preventing the door from slamming closed. We also offer a wide variety of cabinet door restraints that prevent cabinet doors from opening past a certain angle. Our selection is stocked with an array of innovative devices made by leading brands, such as BLUM, Hettich, and Sugatsune, just to name a few. Whether you are looking for a lift-up system or a simple restraint chain, you will surely find what you need right here.
What kind of cabinet door restraint do you need?
Before diving headfirst into a kitchen cabinetry project, it is important to bear in mind all the potential issues that could arise with your installation or renovation. Not only do you need to triple-check the measurements but you must also ensure that the cabinet doors function as they are intended to once the installation is complete. Door restraints are ideal for cabinet doors that may swing open too far or are constantly bumping into nearby objects. No matter what problem you are trying to address, our hardware experts can help you find the perfect solution.
To make your vertical cabinet doors more convenient and user-friendly, BLUM offers an all-in-one and innovative solution in the AVENTOS Stay Lift System. This system allows cabinet doors to easily lift up and remain in any desired position, so you gain unhindered access to the items inside. This lift system is ideal for smaller cabinets with lift-up overlay or inset doors. AVENTOS also allows cabinet doors to softly and effortlessly close regardless of weight or how hard you slam them shut thanks to BLUMOTION. If you wish to restrict the normal opening angle from 107 to 75 degrees, restriction clips will help you keep doors from hitting any objects above or make high handles easier to reach.
Sugatsune's vertical swing lift-up mechanism is ideal for frameless cabinets with overlay doors, and we offer three different models to choose from for cabinet doors weighing 5.5 – 7.7 pounds, 7.9 – 9.9 pounds, and 10.1 – 11.4 pounds. We also supply lift-up hinges for overhead compartments in aircraft, furniture built-ins, kitchen cabinets, RVs, and more.
Whether you are looking for a soft-close solution for your vertical frameless cabinets or a flap support for your front opening cabinet doors, we have all your needs covered in one convenient place. Sugatsune's soft down support will hold your vertical cabinet door in the open position and allow it to gently close when pulled shut. Flaps are all the fashion in terms of kitchen wall units. Hettich's flap support can be used for front opening cabinets or as a lid support for boxes.
In addition to cabinet door restraints, we also offer an array of devices that may be able to help you with your home improvement project. Our friction type lid support, for example, can be used for horizontal, vertical, or drop-down lids on cabinets and chests. Each lid support is adjustable, convertible, demountable, and reversible. Our over-the-top flipper door slide will allow your cabinet door to be opened from the bottom, pivoted up, and slid back on top of the cabinet. Plus, our flipper door slide slows the speed and dampens the closing action. We also offer a 12-inch cabinet door restraint to restrict the door from opening too far or hitting other objects.
