No quality control. Hinges fall apart. They do not close the door. Hinge angles are different from hinge to hinge causing variation in the gap between the door and the jam.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kazoo Works very well!
The installation went well, with some help from a friend. I did not want to undo the spring and then take the time to re-set it, sticking a wedge in the hinge to hold it open worked just as well.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jsoard Directions are useless
Construction and quality are both good and it works... that's the good news. I can understand the negative comments in other reviews but not a deal breaker. The not so good news is a list of warnings -
1) Don't even LOOK at the instructions. They are useless. You're better off going straight to YouTube and seeing one of these puppies in action
2) Plan for a 3/8" clearance for the hinge. I am working with a 32" door opening and a 31 3/4" door so there is a plane in my future.
3) I used three hinges and one of them has a broken spring. I can return it and HomeDepot is very understanding about such things, but it's annoying and time consuming. One out of three is not a good fail rate.

Just purchased and opened/read instructions. Now on web site for better instructions and there is no further help. After reading reviews, I will be returning to Home Depot for refund.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Robbie Dutch Door
I cut a louvered solid core door in half above the knob hole to use the bottom half as a dutch door between kitchen and dining room. Specs show max 30" door/18 lbs. They aren't kidding. The spring wouldn't even lift the 18 lb, 32" half door off the floor. Adding a third hinge below the top hinge did the trick. They seem to work great now. I plan to replace the jamb-side screws though, they are not long enough. As others have noted, the end caps do fall off too easily (quality ding). They also seem a little pricy, especially considering that I needed three of them to hang half a door. Spent more on the hinges that I did on the door. We'll have to wait and see how long the springs last.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wally Good purchase with one annoying sound
Have installed two doors, each using 2 of these double action spring door hinges. Only one of the four hinges has a "squeak" that I cannot find or know where to apply lubricant.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jim56 Poor description and specs
Home Depot needs to put an accurate description on this product, this is a special hinge and really needs to have accurate dimensions, specs.
Specifically the maximum weight of the door that can be used and also the maximum thickness of the door, which is critical for this type of hinge.
