We proudly offer a broad selection of miniature spring door hinges to suit a wide range of applications. Miniature hinges are commonly used for crafts and woodworking projects or wherever a standard size spring hinge simply won't suffice. Our small spring hinge collection features an array of finishes to choose from, so you can complement any existing hardware or dress up your handcrafted masterpiece with a stylish material.

The traditional spring hinge, otherwise known as a spring-loaded hinge, is a hinge that's fitted with a spring in order to automatically close the door from the open position. Mini spring hinges are a fraction of the size of a traditional spring hinge, making them an attractive choice for furniture makers and craft enthusiasts. They are great for use on leightweight cabinet or furniture doors where self-closing functionality is desired.
Every small spring hinge that we supply is a single-acting spring hinge, which is particularly well suited to doors that swing in only one direction. These hinges are made of high-grade stainless steel, which is an alloy made up of mostly iron as well as chromium and nickel. With the addition of chromium, stainless steel is more resistant to rust and corrosion than traditional steel. Our selection includes polished chrome/stainless steel options as well as satin nickel/stainless steel options, so you can find the perfect solution to serve as the finishing touch for your project.
There are several ways you can use our opening and closing hinges to advance your project. When installed as a full mortise butt hinge, the 1-9/16" closing spring hinge will open the door, but it will close the door when installed as a full surface hinge. When installed as a full mortise butt hinge, the 1-9/16" opening spring hinge will close the door, but it will open the door when installed as a full surface hinge.
