Specialty Lift-Off Hinges
When it comes to making doors easy to remove, there are only a handful of hardware options for you to choose from. Lift-off hinges, also known as detachable or take-apart hinges, can be taken apart easily so you can remove doors in the event of painting, renovating, or transporting wide furniture. Lift-off door hinges provide a great solution for a wide variety of openings, including cabinet doors and lids. These hinges are comprised of two leaves: a male leaf and a female leaf. The male leaf features an attached pin and is mounted to the stationary surface while the female leaf is mounted to the door, allowing it to be lifted off the male leaf without having to remove them both. HardwareSource offers a wide range of hinge sizes to match any squared or cornered requirements you may have.
Lift-off hinges are commonly used in residential construction projects but they might also be required in administrative or commercial applications. Some states and localities have strict building codes that require the use of lift-off door hinges in different types of facilities, such as public restrooms. We carry an array of take-apart hinges made by Sugatsune, one of the top hardware manufacturers trusted by architects, builders, and designers alike. Sugatsune's quick release hinge features a hinge pin release mechanism that allows doors or lids to be easily removed. Plus, the hinge pin is spring-loaded, so that it may keep the door or lid safely locked when not in use. Most of the lift-off hardware we supply is handed, so you will need to take note of what your specific application requires.
We also offer free-swinging hinges and lift-off door hinges with bent leaves, so they can be mounted around the sides of a door or frame. If you would like to add a decorative element to your cabinets or an antique piece of lidded furniture, our finial-tipped take-apart hinges might just be the best solution for your project. Our selection of lift-off hinges features a wide variety of base materials to choose from, so you can match any existing door hardware in your home or find the sturdiest solution for your business. In addition to brass and steel base materials, we also offer an assortment of finishes that will give any installation an attractive finishing touch. Our selection includes tones of brass, bronze, chrome, nickel, and zinc.
