Rising Butt Hinges Self-Colour 70 x 73mm
Good but beware....
Good quality and value hinges.
Just be careful about choosing left or right handed. I thought quite reasonably that right handed hinges would be the ones that you use when you want them on the right-hand side of the door as you look at it. I was wrong! Right handed refers to the post being on the right as you look at an open hinge - i.e. for use on the left hand side of the door. Srewfix - how about making this clear in the product description?

Good sturdy hinge
needed a pair of rising butts for my Mother, she'd just had a new carpet laid and the door was now far too tight. Nice sturdy steel hinge, easy to fit, just had to enlarge and deepen rebate on both door & frame, then screw them on with the screws supplied. Mother's now happy as she can open & shut the door once more.

Bought for Drama Group
We are putting on the farce 'Noises Off' by Michael Frayn where we have to turn the set total around between act 1 and act 2 then back again between act 2 and act 3. With me so far?
The doors therefore still have to work properly but open the same way in act 1 and 3 and the opposite way in act 2. Still with me?
We have put left and right rising hinges on either side of each door frame (there are 6 doors) so that all we need to do is lift them off one side and replace them the other side. Very clever. Applause. Take a bow and soak in the adulation.
See you on the night.
