sizing of cabinet hinges
I need to replace some self-closing kitchen cabinet hinges. On various hardware websites (e.g. Lowes), I see these hinges sized by two numbers. As in 2 3/4 x 2 1/8 inch or 2 3/4 x 1 7/8 inch.
What do those two numbers mean??? You'd think if they wanted to sell these things online, they'd tell you what the numbers meant.
I would presume that with a hinge with two holes on one side, one number is the hole spacing. On the hinges I'm trying to replace, those two holes are 2 1/8 inch apart. What's the other number? Which is which?
