Answer: 
Unkown. I would not have purchased this type of hinge if the door could open to more than 90 *; it does work perfect for 90* though.

My doorknobs are all stainless steel. Replacing all of the doorknobs to match the hinges would be expensive.

My husband has balance issues and peripheral neuropathy and while I'd like to make it easier for him to fit through our doorways with his rollator, I don't dare use these if the door opening and closing is awkward compared to 80 years of muscle memory. Thanks.

Answer: 
Hello, thank you for your question. With these hinges, when the door is opened, there will be some extra movement of the door coming out, or towards you. It is not necessarily more difficult to open the door, but there is an extra step required when closing the door. I hope this helps. You can contact our Customer Service team at 1.800.247.2343 for more information. Sincerely, HealthSmart.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works fine Does as advertised. I had to make my hinge mortises a little deeper for these hinges to make door close, asthese hinges are a little thicker. No problem, though. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works perfectly even with a door handle that sticks out. the hinges were easy to install after filling the old holes with dowels and glue to make a stable base. they open the door enough that my walker does not scratch the door frame now. I bought more for the other doors. June 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PERFECT EASY ENOUGH FOR MY DAUGHTER TO INSTALL- FUNCTIONS PERFECTLY IN WIDENING THE FRONT DOOR OF OUR HOME FOR HUSBAND's WHEELCHAIR TO ENTER AND EXIT. March 29, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by fairly good deal the hinges widen the door opening, making it easier for people in wheelchairs to enter. March 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good product The use of this hinge saved the cost of a major renovation that would have cost at least $1,000.00, and saved a great deal of work and mess. An excellent remedy for my problem. January 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very useful product Useful product to widen door opening to allow for clearance for wheelchairs or walkers. Easy to install. June 30, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by They didn't work. The hinges did not fit into the hinge pockets cut into the door jams. It would have required re-cutting of the hinge pockets on the jambs and the doors. These are tasks that are doable but would also have required that I hire a good handyman. For he doors that these would have been used on, it made more sense to simply remove the doors giving me enough space to access the rooms using a wheelchair. March 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Offset hinges These hinges are a very inexpensive way to allow for a wider doorway by pulling the door outside the frame, such as allowing a wheelchair user to clear a door that's a little too tight The only downside I could report is they come in a two pack! Never seen a door with only two hinges on it! April 7, 2015
