The cutout for the hinge allows some adjustment in door position after installation. The positioning of the cutout is subjective, but tempering facilities have minimum distances from the end of the glass to the notch. It is important that the hinge is centered in the cutout for the initial installation to have maxium adjustiability.
are greased at the factory for quiet and trouble-free
operation. If there is any squeaking that occurs after
installation, put a drop of "3 in 1 Oil" (also
known as "household oil") on the white nylon
washer that the hinge body pivots on. This washer is the
component that acts as a buffer, so the body of the hinge
doesn't pivot directly on the brass center block. This
solution doesn't require the disassembly of the hinge.
Note: Do not use spray lubricant on these hinges. If the hinge has been disassembled,
upon re-assembly, use white lithium grease to lubricate the interior mechanism.
use an abrasive cleaner on the hardware. Many of
the components are coated with a clear lacquer that
will be irreparably damaged if subjected to harsh, abrasive
chemicals. Advise your customer that drying the hardware
with a clean, soft towel on a daily basis is the best
way to maintain the hardware. If mineral deposits build-up,
mix a couple of drops of a mild liquid soap (such as
Ivory or a similar product) into a cup of warm water.
Using a soft, non-abrasive cloth, clean the hardware.
Rinse thoroughly with clean, warm water and dry.
