Opening angle stops for 110°- and 107°-hinges

What opening angle stops should we use for 110°- and 107°-hinges and how are they installed?

CLIP top BLUMOTION: everything includedHave you ever fitted a kitchen or assembled a piece of furniture and found that the doors collide with an adjacent wall or cabinet? In the worst-case scenario, this even causes damage to the furniture fronts or the walls. You should use an opening angle stop to prevent this from happening.

Blum has a number of different opening angle stops on offer for this purpose. This article will explain which opening angle stop you can use for each hinge and how to assemble these.

 

There is one rule that applies to all doors that are being fitted with an opening angle stop: Always fit an opening angle stop on all hinges in the piece of furniture.

    Hello
    We just purchased a IKEA kitchen witch uses Blum hinges. Our problem is that one cabinet door is hitting a wall. These Blum hinges are 125 decrees. What retrictor clip should we be using?

      Hello Louise,
      unfortunately, we don’t have opening angle stops for our 125° hinges. The only solution is to replace these two hinges with our 110° hinge (the drilling pattern is the same). You will need 2pcs. 71B3590 and 2pcs. opening angle stops 70T3553. You can buy these two items in a specialist shop.

    Hi!
    I have a kitchen from HTH with 107 or 110 hinges, but without the integrated damper. Ours have one that you pop over the hinge after install.

    I would like to restrict some of our doors, so they don’t exceed 90 degrees (some could do 95-100).

    Which product will I need? Close by retailers had no idea what I was talking about when I mentioned angle restriction.

      Hi Glenn,

      thank you for your request. Kitchen form H.T.H. have normally 107° hinges inside. You will need the angle restriction clip 74.1103 with limits the opening angle to 86°. When you cannot find a retailer, please contact our customer service in Denmark https://www.blum.com/dk/da/04/70/20/. They will help you.

        I could find some other retailers that sell them online.
        I noticed that these are installed from the back of the hinge, so it isn’t as easy as the newer ones.

        I also noticed that it says “non-removable”?
        I have some spare hinges, and would like to test with them, maybe sand the plastic down so I get a bit closer to 90 degrees.

        How many clips are necessary per door? Only one of two hinges? I have one combined door with 5 hinges, maybe only 2 clips would be sufficient?

          Hello Glenn,
          we recommend using an opening angle stop on every hinge.
          In the second video above, you can see how you can install the clips.
          You can remove these opening angle stops, but it is not very easy. Normally you do not have to remove them after you installed your furniture.

    Hello,
    I recently had a new bathroom installed. Part of the installation was cupboards. Unfortunately the fitter omitted to allow for the door opening angle, which now continually hits the wall.
    I have seen on your website the restrictors for the 107° hinge, but try as I might I am unable to find a supplier for these items.
    Can you possibly help me please?

    Hi, I’m in Canada and am looking for a way to restrict my PAX Komplement hinges. DO you have restrictors for those? They may have 125 degree opening angles. I’m not sure as they are hitting cover panels in most places.

    I installed the 86 degree restrictors but they do not allow me to use the pull out shelves in my cabinet. Is there another type of restrictor that allows me to open the cabinets to 90 degrees as to not interfere with the pull out shelves?

    I have a pantry with roll out shelves behind two 36″ tall doors. The 86 degree restrictor clips prevent the rollouts from opening without pressing against the doors. Do you offer a restriction clip that limits a door to 90 degrees? Or can you tell me how to modify the restriction clip from 87 to 90 degrees?

      Hello Terri,
      For this application I would suggest using our CLIP top BLUMOTION 155° nil protrusion hinge. For these hinges we have a restriction clip that limits the door to 92° degree. See here.
      For the hinges you use in the moment we haven’t a restriction clip which fits to your needs. When you need more information about our nil protrusion hinges please have a look at our homepage

    I have 2 doors with Blum Blind Corner Hinge 95. These both hit other doors and can cause damage. I have been told by your Australian Distributor that you do not have restrictors for these hinges. I find that hard to contemplate as I would think you would provide this option for ALL of your hinges.
    I have fitted other restrictors to the other doors to stop at 86 Degrees and these work well. I wish you would provide the same for the Blind Corner Hinge 95. Or is there another hinge I could use to stop at 86 degrees or even 90 degrees?

      Hi Chris,
      indeed, there is no opening angle stop for your blind corner hinge.
      Still, we would like to ask for some more details about your hinge application so as to provide you with the right alternative hinge – if possible.
      I have forwarded your request to our Australian subsidiary and one of my colleagues will get in touch with you directly via e-mail.

    Hello, I have used the 74.1103 restrictor with the 107° hinge and the cabinet door is still hitting the wall next to it. Is there a restrictor that will stop the door at less than 86°? Maybe like 70° or 75° instead?

      Dear Terri,
      for undamped hinges there are no angle restrictors. However, you could replace your hinges with damped versions. Commonly, this is possible with ease because we use the same drilling positions with 99% of our hinges.
      We will forward your request to our US customer service and they will help you find an alternative solution for your specific hinges.

      Best regards from Austria

    hi,

    we have 3 horizontal cabinets that use the ikea hinge, made by blum.
    they are close to the ceiling and when we open them, they hit the ceiling quite hard. is there a restrictor we can put on them?
    we also have one for the microwave… we pull it down to open it, and also wanted to know if we could put a hinge restrictor on it. it seems to be damaging the cabinet door. is this not intended for use this way?
