The problem with this advert is that different sellers seem to be selling different combinations of the mounts (the bit that goes on the inside of the cabinet) and the hinges (the arm that attaches to the door in the 35mm hole).
The photos for example shows door hinges with the holes centered and offset. The mounts also come in different versions which might use thin self tapping screws or the thicker euro screws for pre-drilled holes.
If you are replacing existing hinges you should not have to drill or fill in holes *if* you get the correct combination of mount and hinges to match your existing ones. The problem is the lack of details in this advert and sellers not knowing what combinations they are selling.
On to the hinges themselves.
The dampening mechanism is hidden in the hinge body which looks tidy. However I think the dampening action starts far too early. When you close a door it starts to dampen at about 45 degrees or half way in. Hence the door takes a long time to close.... it is kind of overly dramatic if you know what I mean.
When you open a door with these hinges there seems to be more resistance and the door springs/ bounces open which I think over time might weaken the hinges, mounts or screw holes.
The quality of the hinges are okay but I had a few where the U pins where not pressed into the hinges properly making the whole hinge less rigid.
Personally I will not get these HAFELE hinges again. I will stick with BLUM hinges which I think are better in terms of quality and dampening action.
The design makes fitting and adjusting about as easy as it could get. Firstly the two parts can be fixed to the frame and door respectively. Then the door part simply clips and latches onto the frame part for an almost instant and secure attachment.
There are then two screw heads visible for door alignment. One screw moves the hinge away/towards the frame and the other screw moves the hinge away/towards the back of the cabinet - this allows both axes to be independently adjusted without the need to undo or move the fixings. If up/down adjustment is needed, then this is done by releasing the frame fixing slightly and pushing up/down as needed, then re-tightening (like all these type of hinges do). This sounds more complicated when trying to explain it in writing, but in practice it really is straightforward.
In my case I've used them to replace old hinges and found that one type were an exact replacement with all screw holes exactly aligned, whereas another type needed the two small door fixing holes to be drilled about 3mm away from the old holes. This was easily accomplished by plugging the old holes with some wood (matchstick!) and drilling new pilot holes. One minor point to mention is that the door fixing holes, on the hinges I received, were not as shown in the main photo - they were about 3mm more towards the edge of the door. Had they been as shown in the main photo, then my set of doors that needed pilot holes wouldn't have and the others would! As different manufacturers appear to have no standard for the location of these fixing screws, then it'll be a matter of luck if they match or not those to be replaced.Read more ›
I must say also that cabinetsforbathrooms gave me excellent service when I mistakenly ordered the 'inset' version (stay away from those unless you know you really need them!).
