They say they are to be only used with unsprung hinges. so which hinges?

I hate the hafele website. :x

What size doors and how many? If the doors aren't too big, then I'd be happy to let you have some of these catches and hinges for the cost of the postage. You would need to order some of the locking part - the round bit that goes into the door. Let me know if you are interested.

I've used these catches on a couple af cabinets recently, they drill into the carcase and look a lot neater than the ones in your link.

Thanks for pointing in the right direction Jon. I've used those middle latches before on loft hatches, proper pants.

They look smart Jason! how many did you use on a door?

I've only got one door at 350x510mm. That's really generous Steve, I'll happily take up your offer thanks mate.

I just used one per door think they were about 800 high and definatly 500mm wide, Mirrors on the front too. Not the best pic but there are 3 doors above the basin, cabinet set flush into boxing. You can either push to open or just give the edge of the door a gentil pull and they will open.
