Ok, probably a classic mistake. Corner cabinet with pull out, door opens toward the stove on second wall, door touches the unforseen warming drawer handle. Using full overlay logica salice hinges. I tried the restriction clip 87 degrees still does not keep it from hitting the handle. The door needs to stop in that sweet area of not hitting the handle yet allowing the corner hardware to come out. the area is there but I can't figure out the best way to keep the door there, do I now need to do some sort of chain,rope,wire fish hole thingy? or is there some official hardware that I dont know about?? Thanks everyone.
Possible to use a lid stay? Might have to fiddle with the placement to hit the sweet spot.
Oh yeah! That could work pretty well. I'll check it out. thanks.
You could shim the hinge plate with a tapered shim, effectively changing the opening angle.
Call your saline rep. That's what they are for. I just recently saw some cup hinge shims for the first time. Perhaps there is such a shim for your specific angle.
I tried a lid stay side ways on a mock up in the shop and works great for stopping the door in the sweet spot but has trouble closing due to the soft close with out the verticle force. Maybe I need to bust it open and take out what ever damping system is in there. Or try and find a "free swinging" lid stay.
I tried the guys at the tech department and said they had nothing to help with.
Maybe I should invent an adjustable opening hinge and make my millions.
Any other thoughts out there??
I bend the loop that attaches to the door as necessary for the application. I leave the screw that attaches the cabinet loop loose, so that the cable can move around when the door closes thereby eliminating any binding. They work fine with Salice soft close hinges.
I hope this helps.
I might have to go with that Hafele wire, atleast it does not look that bad. Any problems with the screw pulling out over time, that would be a worry of mine.
I really can't believe no one has come up with an adjustable opening hinge even if it cost $40 a pair, right now I would be those no question.
This is not exactly high tech. Take a clear bumper that you normally use to soften the noise of the door and put it between the arm of the hinge and the spring. The hinge then will not be able to open as far. Probably will have to play with the thickness of the bumper to get the desired opening angle. Best to put on both hinges. Depending on size of bumpers, you may need to use 2 on each hinge.
I once worked for a very frugal shop owner doing installs. On every job there was a requirement that no door could hit a wall or adjacent cabinet or..any appliance . The way we solved that was to take a length of small dia. Coated cable wire ,we used black. Make two loops, length varied, and attach the cable as a crash chain of sorts to the door and carcass at a aprox 30 or so degrees off the hinge side. It will stop the door bumping the stove . Good luck
Marks suggestion worked out perfect. The rubber bumper idea I thought was going to work, but there was still too much play and it still hit. The Hafele wire is not that ugly either.
