Door hinge accessories are products that can be used with hinges or to make the process of installing hinges much easier overall. We carry an assortment of door router guides, templates, and accessories to be used with SOSS and Tectus hardware. A door router guide allows you to cut both the shallow and deep mortise required for installation, and we carry a variety of guides to suit every size SOSS or Tectus hinge in our inventory. Simply select the correct guide for the SOSS or Tectus hinge size you need to install. The template is held on the door and the jamb using nails and removable guide pins located in the deep mortise. Every router guide system includes router guides, aluminum channel rails, a connecting angle rail, guide pins, locator pins, and fasteners. We also stock extra router template guides, lock nuts, router bits, and bushings, so you will never be caught empty-handed when it's time to complete installation.
Our selection of door hinge tools includes universal milling frames and butt hinge marking tools. A universal milling frame will make the installation of Tectus hinges fast and easy from start to finish. The jig clamps to the door or frame and holds the template in perfect alignment. Our butt hinge marker tool works like a chisel by cutting the outline of a square butt hinge quickly and easily all in one step, which saves time if you're cutting a hinge mortise by hand.
Don't forget about all those odds and ends you need!

Single Acting: Single acting hinges swing in one direction. Double Acting: Double acting hinges swing in both directions.
Plain Bearing: Plain bearing is the simplest type of bearing. They are a good low cost option for lightweight doors. Ball Bearing: Ball bearing hinges have ball bearings to act as a buffer between the knuckles. They tend to be quieter and more durable than plain bearing hinges. They are recommended for heavy doors and doors fitted with closers. Roller Bearing: Roller bearings are able to support very heavy loads. Many of our heavy duty gate hinges are equipped with roller bearings.
Face Frame: Face frame cabinets have a “frame” that attaches to the front of the cabinet. The face frame gives the cabinet box extra strength while adding dimension to the door fronts. Face frame cabinets are commonly made by American cabinet manufactures. Frameless: Frameless cabinets do not have a face-frame, and instead rely on thicker side panels for strength. Frameless cabinets are very common in Europe, but have steadily been making their way into America, as they lend themselves well to contemporary and modern designs.
The center to center is the distance from the center of one screw hole to another. Most manufacturers use this measurement to identify the size of the pull.
