One of our most popular hinge, these non-mortise cabinet hinges are available in 7 finishes. Here it is featured with a minaret (or sometimes called finial) tip. We designed this hinge because our customers asked for an outstanding non-mortise hinge again and again. We believe this is the best non-mortised hinge on the market today.

Made from extruded brass, each is machined to precision tolerances. The hinge leaves measure 1-1/2" wide when open by 2-1/2" tall. Perfect for 3/4" thick wood.

Please note: You must put a back bevel in your cabinet doors when using ANY non mortise hinge. 2-3 degrees is plenty.

Do you want to use these hinges in a production environment? Feel free to make jigs and fixtures. Every hinge is exactly the same, and extremely precise. In fact, you can use the same jigs and fixtures for both NM-3, NM-5, and NM-7 non-mortised hinges.

Each non-mortise hinge is supplied with matching brass screws in a matching finish. They are also supplied with a second set of zinc-plated steel pilot screws for installation. Phillips or Slotted screws are available per your request.

   Solid construction, March 18, 2021  By Anonymous (Lafayette, IN)
I needed antique brass hinges and knobs for a corner cabinet in tiger maple. The hardware was very well made with tight tolerances and a nice finish. I appreciated having steel screws to set the hinges first, to lessen any chance of stripping or breaking the brass screws.
   NM-5 Hinge, May 20, 2020  By Ronald Aument (East Petersburg, PA)
The quality, fit and finish on these hinges are hard to beat. I use them for inset kitchen cabinet doors. I especially like the uniformity which allow the use of the same jig for installation time and time again. The close production tolerance prevents the doors from sagging.

   Beautiful fit and finish, March 21, 2017  By Anonymous (Chester, CT)(Verified)
These hinges are a dream to work with. Installation is a breeze with 2 shop made jigs and the 2 way adjustment slots allow for fine tuning. Once installed, there is zero slop in the hinge so the reveals stay true. Highly recommend for any type of cabinetry.

I used these on a Shaker Wall Clock and the recipients were delighted. I use the Horton name as a selling point. The products are exceptional, the service is superb and the Horton name is an assurance of attention to detail!
   Very High Quality, September 24, 2015  By Doug Turner (Rex, GA)
Another reviewer knocked off a star for the fact that they are made in China. And while I'd prefer that they were made in the US, they are flawless hinges. Zero slop, always the same.
   Very nice for my nightstands, March 30, 2015  By D. L. Allen, Cabinetmaker (Mount Vernon, OH)
I would give these hinges 5 stars if they weren't made in China(due to their lax quality control). However, these hinges are very well made and solid. Their action is very niceno slop. The finish, done by Horton, is excellent. I make custom furniture to ship all over the country and can't have any hardware failures. I trust Horton and have used their harware for years. And they're great to work with.
