Flap Hinge Antique Copper
Also known as a Drop Flap Hinge
This is a must have hinge for the construction of drop-front panels and anywhere a flush mount hinge is needed to stop at 180 degrees so surfaces are flush with each other
Closed position is 90 degrees
Mount this hinge by boring a 1-3/16" hole 1/2" deep using a Fostener bit or a router. Bore a 1-3/16" x 1/8" place for the flap side.
This hinge is most commonly seen on computer desks with a drop-down drawer front where the keyboard drawer pulls out

PLEASE NOTE: This hinge is designed to fit in a fostener drilled flat bottom recess 1-3/16" Diameter for a tight fit in 3/4" wood thickness. A longer screw will not work unless your wood is thicker. If you will notice, the screws go in at an angle and not straight through. The design behind this is that when the hinge is slipped into the recess(which must be a pretty tight fit) then the screws go in at an angle and hold it in place by a wedging effect. This allows it to be secured and still remain usable in a 3/4" board. It is difficult to install so we do mention that it " is not an an amateur job"
