How can you tell a CLIP top BLUMOTION 110° hinge apart from the 107° Version?
It is often difficult for fitters on-site to tell if a CLIP top BLUMOTION 110° hinge or CLIP top BLUMOTION 107° hinge is installed in a piece of furniture. However, it is important to know this information, especially when it comes to selecting the right opening angle stop. The two simple steps below will help you to differentiate between the hinges.
Step 1: Have you actually installed a CLIP top BLUMOTION hinge?
Unlike our CLIP top hinges, CLIP top BLUMOTION hinges have integrated dampening. If the hinge has a ‘BLUMOTION bracket’ and a deactivation switch as shown in the graphic, it is definitely a CLIP top BLUMOTION hinge.
Step 2: How can you then tell the hinge with a 107° opening angle apart from the hinge with a 110° opening angle?
Take a closer look at the following two parts of the hinge:
- Deactivation switch: There is a protrusion on the boss of the 110° hinge near the deactivation switch, whilst the boss of the 107° hinge is completely smooth.
- BLUMOTION bracket: The BLUMOTION bracket lies almost horizontally in the boss of the 110° hinge, whereas it is roughly vertical in the boss of the 107° hinge. Please note: The BLUMOTION function must be activated in order for this to be seen.
