Thank you for reaching out. We do not put the specific instructions on here due to the wide variation of door sizes and customization. But for a standard 36" Flush mount door, your jamb will be 37 1/2. Your door will be 34 3/4 wide. Jamb height will be 80 7/8 and the door will be 78 1/2.

Does this hardware kit come with hardware mounting instructions?

Asked by JoshSchrank December 9, 2020

Answer

Yes there are instructions for the hardware, but they are just very generic instructions as there are so many different options for sizes that can be built. They can also be found on murphydoor.com.

Asked by MadDog April 14, 2020

The minimum depth would be the width of the hinge about 2", also depends if you want insuring or out-swing and the weight load you will put on the door. The hinge manufacturer says the door can support 300 lbs. The instructions are not good you can see them on Home Depot. Keep in mind the hinge is a vertical hinge that theoretically can rotate 360 degrees - of course the limitation are walls. It is a good product, just plan on thinking before doing. In my case turned out well.

does this kit include the door or just the hinge kit?

The hinge set as shown. I had a custom made cabinet since I wanted a half wall book case; however there are a number of doors from Murphy Door.

What is the clearance I have to have between the door and the frame?

Asked by Rob March 12, 2019
3
Answers

Good question, in my case I followed all the instructions and found the clearance is less than stated. Keep in mind you have essentially rotating furniture and it will need clearance. Also you have the door stop that required at least 1", it is the object that will keep the door closed. It is better to have a smaller doorway than having something that will not fit.

NO. Can be used for both in-swing and out-swing applications.

The bottom polystop keeps it closed, but if someone actually leaned on it, it would open. That's how it's designed. Also be aware that you need at least two inches of space between the door frame and the wall on the inswing hinge side.

There is only about 50 dollars worth of value in this $150 hinge set. The bearings are cheap, the pin that fits in the lower bearing is loose when assembled and is not centered properly, the countersunk holes are not even, the powder coat is poorly applied. I am not confident that this will hold up to long term use with a full bookcase as laid out by the Murphy Door company. I wouldn't complain near as much if it was priced appropriately, but you are paying a premium price for a non premium product.

The ad that was online stated that the lumber came with it. Before I ordered it, I chatted with a customer service person, & I asked if the lumber was included, she said yes. It didn't, to pay $162, price & tax, for a few pieces of metal was really high. I won't order that again.

Thank you for reaching out. I apologize that there was confusion on the hardware with our customer service. They must have thought that you were talking about the full doors. We apologize again for the confusion. MurphyDoor

Ball-Bearing Hardware is much better and smoother than other brands. Somewhat easy to put together for a custom made door. However, needed to fish around the internet for something that should be easily found on the company website for DIY’ers. Customer service is not good. Installed the hinge kit, and the pivot bolt on top fell apart...ball bearing fell out! Contacted multiple times via Phone and Email for replacement with ZERO Response

Response from Murphy Door ProSep 3, 2020
Thank you for the review. This is not how our products or our team is supposed to handle this. You should have received a brand new set of hardware. If you could reach out to cs.dept@murphydoor.com we will get you a new set of hardware. We are working on a instructional that we will have posted on the product page, and should have it up soon. We look forward to hearing from you soon. MurphyDoor

This was one of the most complicated things I have sever undertaken. Why, simple the instructions are all based on their Murphy Door Bookcases and not the product itself. The instructions are not for the hinges themself but for the Murphy Door product. If you are selling the hinge kit, tell the basics and stop with the pin set, and the other attributes of the product. I will say Home Depot does make an attempt to provide assistance. The place meant of the hinge is relative and not exact since it is a 360 degree hinge. Second, these hinges are simple and of great quality. So the product itself is not the problem. The problem is the instructions that are totally useless. Het back to the basics, for each element in the package explain it technically related to the purpose and not just to the door manufactured by Murphy Door. Now that I have installed the door for my purpose after having the hinges for over a year and being apprehensive about doing it from the fear of messing up. Improve the instructions, give the buyer a break.
