The Most Common Door Hinge: Hinge Outlet’s Butt Hinge

The door hinge most commonly used in homes and businesses is called a butt hinge. The reason the butt hinge is used so often is that it is designed to support a lot of weight and comes in a wide variety of styles, sizes, and finishes.

A butt hinge is constructed with two rectangular leaves that have screw holes. The leaves are connected by a pin or metal rod. Remove the pin, and the leaves will separate – something you would do if you were removing a door. The butt hinge leaves are mortised, or recessed: one into the edge of the door; the other in the jamb or door framework. When the door is closed, the leaves of the hinge meet, or “butt” together, with only the pin showing.

Most butt hinge pins are removable, but some are built to be non-removable for security purposes. carries a variety of Butt Hinges including plain bearing butt hinges, ball bearing butt hinges, and spring butt hinges. Our butt hinges are available with both removable and non-removable pins.

Butt hinges are often used in woodworking projects, like cabinetry, because they are strong hinges, and easy to attach.

Because butt hinges are the backbone of the door, they are in constant use. Durability and longevity are critical considerations when it comes to the quality of butt hinge you’d like to purchase.
