Good looking, smooth-turning hinges with removable pins We had the opportunity to install these satin nickel Everbilt Smooth Action Operation hinges (1002 316 485) “side by side” with a set of Everbilt Ball Bearing hinges (1002 316 516) on adjacent doors. Both doors were light weight, interior, wood 6-panel. Both hinges perfectly replaced the old 3 ½” tall, ⅝” radius brass hinges. Both designs have removable pins which are easy to tap out and pop the door off without unscrewing the hinges from the door or frame. Both 3-packs included 1 extra screw - a nice touch if you lose one! Both hinges worked perfectly on the doors with no discernable difference in operation, swinging freely, with no squeaks or creaks. There are a few differences, some of which can be seen in the side-by-side pics. The Smooth Action hinges are less expensive. The Smooth Action hinges have some resistance when just holding them in your hand, but felt the same once installed. The Smooth Action hinges lack the “security tab” of the Ball Bearing hinge (see pics), but this only matters for exterior doors. And, of course, the Smooth Action hinges do not have ball bearings, which are supposed to last longer without binding or squeaking. In summary: If you have a lightweight door where security isn’t an issue, the Smooth Action hinges will be just fine and save a couple of dollars per set, which will really add up if you’re updating a whole house! But if you have a heavy door or an exterior door with the pin exposed, the Ball Bearing hinges are worth the extra couple of bucks. Regardless they’re both good looking with quality feel and operation. I intend to get more to finish replacing the remaining old, brass hinges in the house. Note: We received this item free from Home Depot’s “Seeds” program. Home Depot only asked that we provide an honest review.

Pros Durable, Easy to Install, Nice Design, Sturdy, Stylish, nice finish, removable pin

Good looking, smooth-turning hinges with removable, but STIFF pins I’ve had good luck with Everbilt hinges and got this set of satin nickel Everbilt Smooth Action Operation hinges (1002 316 505). These are sold one hinge per package, so you’ll need three packages for a door. I installed these on a light weight, interior, wood 6-panel powder room door. They perfectly replaced the old 3 ½” tall, ⅝” radius brass hinges and swing smoothly. The only problem I experienced was with the removable hinge pins. After installing the hinges I attempted to tap out the pin with a hammer and nail through the hole in the bottom. I’ve done this successfully with many other hinges, but could not get the pin to budge, and bent two nails trying! I contacted Home Depot / Everbilt customer support and got a quick response explaining that because the hinges contain a heavy grease the pin may be difficult to remove. They provided a video demonstrating the same hammer and nail technique I used, but with the hinge NOT installed, and resting on a wood block. I confirmed this worked, but it defeats the purpose of easily removing a door by pulling the pins! The pin was a *little* easier to remove after this. They’re fine for a powder room or closet, where you’re not likely to need to remove the door. But if you’re installing on laundry room or bedroom door, where you might need to remove it to fit appliances or furniture, then I recommend splurging a couple more dollars and get Everbilt’s Ball Bearing hinges (1002 316 516) - the pins are MUCH easier to remove, probably because they have ball bearings instead of grease. Note: We received this item free from Home Depot’s “Seeds” program. Home Depot only asked that we provide an honest review.

Do not buy these unless you like to put WAY more effort into replacing hinges than you planned. Removing the bottom cap and the pin is ridiculous. Should be able to remove the pin with some ease, but no, let's make it more difficult than it needs to be. They look nice though!

  • Double pin nonsense
  • August 10, 2019

The upper/lower pin is nonsense and nearly impossible to take out. I don't know what was wrong with the basic design but I don't recommend this, I returned two sets shortly after buying them.

These hinges are strong, stylish and functional. They have a deep satin nickel finish that has held up well in the bathroom environment. The action is very smooth and the non-removable pins don't work themselves up as removable pins frequently do. The 5/8" radius rounded corners make routing out the mortises easy if you are using a standard routing template.

Solid construction and quiet operation. Pin does not appear to be removable and no instructions on how to do so, if possible.
