Now available: polished brass, stainless steel and gold-plated. I’m hoping to offer the range as I originally intended it – smartHinge and matching smartLock in all finishes – very soon.
important note: all hinges may be fitted using either 8mm or 5/16″ router cutters.
And why is smartHinge so good? …
