What Is the HG-CHJ70?
The HG-CHJ70 is an adjustable butt hinge with a detent feature that holds the door or lid in certain positions, preventing it from swinging freely. The shaft is made of stainless steel for durability and smooth performance, and the brackets are polyacetal.
- Can be used for both vertical and horizontal applications
- The retaining torque measures 17.71 lbs-in (20.4 kgf⋅cm)
- The hinge comes factory set with three angles: -3°, 90°, and 177°, giving you a fully closed, halfway open, and fully open position.
However, what sets this hinge apart is that the middle (90°) position is actually adjustable and can conveniently be adjusted with a 5 mm hex key to any of three settings:
- 45° (one-quarter open)
- 90° (halfway open)
- 135° (three-quarters open).
We’ll explain how to adjust adjustable door hinges shortly.
How Do Adjustable Hinges Work?
The HG-CHJ70 is user-friendly both to install and operate.
For installation, all you need to do is screw it in place. For a better appearance, the hinge comes with these cover caps to conceal your screw mounting holes. Additionally, this new adjustable detent hinge comes in two colors: white and black.
You can install the HG-CHJ70 in any orientation:
- Front-Opening: Door opens to the left or right, or upward toward the ceiling.
- Top-Opening: Door lies flat when shut and opens upward.
For operation, simply open and close the door as desired. The hinge will click into place at each of the three positions. The detent strength is enough to hold the door but mild enough that you can still easily push or pull the door to another position.
