Wouldn't it be nice if all home improvement projects were easy? When choosing new hardware for the doors around your home, one way you can make the installation process a smooth one is by selecting no-mortise hinges. These hinges do not require any cuts in the door or the door frame for them to be attached, providing a quick and easy solution for installing hinges. A non-mortise hinge is thinner than a standard hinge, which limits the gap on the doors of cabinets and other openings in your home. A hinge of this type leaves only a small space between the door and the frame, which may just be the solution you have been looking for all along. At HardwareSource, we offer a wide variety of hinges that don't require any mortise, so you can find a decorative and/or dependable solution for the doors you wish to install.
Our selection of no-mortise hinges offers a wide variety of hardware to choose from for cabinet doors, full-size doors, and so much more. No-mortise spring hinges are self-closing and come with adjustable tension. Wrap-around hinges are designed to wrap around the back of full inset doors for extra attachment strength. They are ideal for entertainment centers with articulated doors. Our wrap-around hinges come with ball tips and steeple tips, so you can add a decorative touch to your installation. We also carry double wrap hinges, which wrap around both the back of the door and the back of the face frame for extra strength. If you are restoring an old toy chest or piano bench, our no-mortise lid hinges will work wonders for the finished product. We also offer flag-style non-mortise hinges, blocking bi-fold door hinges, and non-mortise cabinet hinges for overlay doors that need to open up to 270 degrees.
No-mortise hinges come in a wide selection of base materials and finishes, so you can find the right solution for any application. Many of the hinges that we supply are made of brass or some form of steel. Solid brass is one of the most dependable and durable base materials used in the hardware industry. Best of all, brass naturally resists corrosion, which is great for applications in coastal areas and other harsh environments. Stainless steel is naturally resistant to corrosion, which means that your hinges won't rust or tarnish over time. Steel can also hold up well in highly corrosive environments and extreme temperatures. There are plenty of finishes to choose from in our non-mortise hinge selection, including bronze, chrome, copper, pewter, nickel, and more. If you have any questions about choosing non-mortise hardware, please feel free to contact us for additional information or further assistance today.

Plain Bearing: Plain bearing is the simplest type of bearing. They are a good low cost option for lightweight doors.

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.
