Hardware can add a decorative touch to some projects, but unique applications may call for a concealed solution that doesn't stick out like a sore thumb. Does that sound like a solution that your project needs? That's where we can help. At HardwareSource, we offer a great selection of hidden hinges for cabinets, doors, and more. Hidden door hinges, also known as concealed hinges or invisible hinges, are aptly named because once installed and the door is in the closed position, you can't see them. We offer a variety of concealed door hinges made by brands trusted throughout the hardware industry, such as SOSS, Sugatsune, and Tectus, just to name a few.
Hidden Hinges – Sold Individually and in Pairs!
When you need a stylish, viable solution for the cabinet doors in your bathroom, closet, kitchen, or office, hidden cabinet hinges offer a multitude of benefits over traditional hinges. Not only are hidden door hinges easy to install but they are also easy to adjust and particularly good at hiding minor imperfections in the construction.
Joe Soss invented the SOSS hidden hinge over a century ago, when the idea struck him after he stumbled over a protruding cargo hold hinge on a ship. 100 years later, SOSS hidden cabinet door hinges are still in demand. We supply light-duty, medium-duty, and heavy-duty concealed door hinges in a wide variety of finishes, including polished or satin stainless steel as well as black, satin brass, and satin chrome. We also carry SOSS spring closer hinges with adjustable closure rate which are ideal for most types of doors that are 1-3/4″ thick. In addition to SOSS invisible hinges, we also offer heavy-duty concealed hinges made by Sugatsune that have successfully passed 300,000 open/close test cycles.
Another iconic name in the world of hidden hinges for cabinet doors is Simonswerk, the manufacturer of Tectus hinges. These hinges are easily adjustable in three directions, cast in aluminum alloy, and come with a black plate that is made of powder-coated steel. Three-dimensional adjustability makes these hidden hinges much more flexible. We also carry an assortment of optional accessories, including router templates, universal milling frames, router template guides, and router bits.
We have been a family owned and operated hardware company since 1892 and take tremendous pride in offering the largest selection of hinges.

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.
