Flawless finish, smooth but tight action.
   Nicest hinges I've ever used, February 8, 2022  By Darrin (FRAMINGHAM, MA)(Verified)
These hinges are extremely high quality. Even before I opened the envelope I could tell by the weight of the package that these were not typical hinges. The color is gorgeous and the build quality exceeded expectations. Well worth the price paid.

Great hinges in the perfect color to finish off a custom laundry rack I built for a client.
   Dependable perfection, June 16, 2021  By David (El Grove, CA)(Verified)
I’ve used these hinges on several projects and I love how every order is exactly like the past order and the quality is better than you could hope to expect. After spending dozens of hours pouring over the details of your project you want hinges that will perform perfectly and do so consistently through the years. I won’t use anything else.

Heavy brass, beautifully finished and precisely machined hinges with very tight tolerances. I can always count on Horton Brasses to provide the best quality hinges for use with fine furniture
   As good as advertized, March 1, 2021  By Robert Lane (Williamsburg, VA)
these hinges are well made and match the description and product info. I particularly like the pilot screws provided to help with set up without marring the permanent screws. They are good quality and well made.

Great hinges, well made and look great
   Excellent product. Excellent service., May 18, 2020  By John Beeler (Grants Pass, OR)
I researched many many hinge manufacturers looking for the product I needed to build my first tool cabinet - I am an amateur woodworker. When I build something I want it to look special. I want it to look classy. A few years back I harvested some Ash from my property. I finally got around to building a finger jointed cabinet. It's 34 inches wide by 42 inches high 10.5 inches deep. The side cabinets which I needed the hinges for are 7 inches deep. I am using four polished brass PB 410's to hang the the side cabinets. When I ordered the PB 409's I thought I wanted I forgot to specify bright brass and received antique brass instead. When I called the company I talked with Amy. Even and though it was my error I asked her for the bright brass and told her that the PB 409's were to small and she recommended the 10's and shipped them at no extra charge that very day. Wow, wow, wow! I have since returned the PB 409's and I am a happy camper. I will recommend this company to the world they were great. I am in the process of mortising the cabinets to accept the hinges as we speak. Thank you Amy.
   Great Hinges, May 6, 2020  By Doug (Mason, MI)
As with all HB products these are top notch hinges. Perfect fit and finish
   Great quality, April 23, 2020  By Arthur Willougby (Bluff City, TN)(Verified)
Nice to be able to find quality solid brass hinges. Also the fact that they come with the proper screws and the zinc screws to make the pilot holes is sure a plus in a world where some vendors sell hinges without screws, who doesn’t need the proper screws? These hinges are tight and look great and I expect they will last a long time. When you spend a lot of time and effort on a project the last thing you want to do is cheap out on the hardware.

Very satisfied with material and workmanship.
   The best mortise butt hinge out there, March 26, 2019  By Anonymous (Philadelphia, PA)(Verified)
No slop; fully interchangeable; just excellent hinges. A great value.
   Nice hinges even for larger tool cabinets, February 23, 2019  By Anonymous (Houston, TX)(Verified)
Really good quality hinges as usual from Horton Brass. Nothing to complain about, overall very pleased and satisfied.
   Very nice hinges for the price, July 5, 2018  By Jason Weigle (Hebron, NE)(Verified)
I used six of these hinges on the doors of my tool cabinet. I was very pleased with the consistency of the width, length, and depth of the leaves across all six hinges - it made marking and mortising simple. I will definitely use them again!
   Amazing costumer service, March 20, 2018  By Anonymous (Palmer, AK)(Verified)
I had question about the PB-409 butt hinges and received a reply within a half hour.
My package came to me well packaged and fast, only 4 days to Alaska. The hardware is of top quality and well finished. I just wish they had more complete instructions of installing the LK-6 Half Mortise Box Lock for lining up and installing the catch
   Quality and Substance, October 17, 2016  By Anonymous (Geneva, IL)
I've always liked the substance and quality of Horton Brasses, now I can stare at the beauty of the satin nickel hinges each time I open my tool Cabinet.

Nice product
   A great product, June 5, 2016  By Brett (Spanish Fork, UT)
I bought these hinges for a Shaker End-field cabinet that I made and they where perfect. There tight, consistent in thickness and they give you plenty of screw for fitting. I highly recommend them.
   Nice hinge - extremely slow shipping for the price., November 1, 2015  By Anonymous (Alexandria, VA)
I'm sure a lot goes into shipping out products and keeping the price low. I do want to comment that the ship time on these hinges is pathetic considering the price.

That said, I'll trust that the hinges are as good as the people recommend them said they are. They seem to better than others I've seen; but it's always hard to justify the price of a high end item.

Horton- bring down the price or ship your item fast!

Note from Horton Brasses-this order was placed on a Friday night and US Mail was selected as the shipping option. We packed the order Monday, but it was Columbus day and there was no mail so the order left on Tuesday.
   Perfect, October 13, 2015  By Anonymous (Sacramento, CA)
These hinges are very high quality. There is no wiggle in the barrel and I think they are worth every penny.
   Fantastic hinges, June 11, 2015  By David McGukin (Bremen, GA)
Excellent product. Outstanding service.
   Very well satisfied, December 1, 2014  By Robert H Skidmore (Louisville, KY)
I thought the quality of these hinges was excellent. Very well made and smooth. No slack at all between the pin and hinge. I really appreciated the extra steel screws to use for starting the holes. This saved having to use the brass screws and risk damaging them.
Thank you!
