Since it's introduction in 2011, smartHinge has become many boxmakers' hinge of choice. Beautifully made and finished in solid brass, the smartHinge stops the lid securely at 93°, but it's not a quadrant hinge - so no fussy excavation under the hinge flaps. And the smartHinge is not 'L' shaped and has a traditional round knuckle - so it's incredibly easy to install: one pass for each leaf using an 8mm cutter in a table-mounted router, screw in place - job done!
Feedback from users regularly includes phrases like 'ingenious simplicity', 'quality is exceptional', 'extremely elegant', 'wow!', 'deliciously simple', 'installed like a dream', 'just fantastic', 'beautifully made and designed', 'so easy to fit' and so on.
smartHinge is now being made in UK and the polished brass version is available again from www.smartBoxmaker.com, a brand new site offering a range of carefully selected specialist tools, hardware and materials for the smart boxmaker. smartHinge will also soon be available in stainless steel and gold-plated versions and smartLock, a lock matching smartHinge in quality, look and ease of fitting, will be also be available soon in the same finishes.
Price: Â£32.50 a pair
