The Soss router guide system saves you time and measurements. Guide can be positioned exactly to hinge locations, then locked in place.
Worked well and I installed doors on the first try. Thankyou , only thing I wished was that the units be made with a true hardwood species, like oak. And the rail system with heavier Guage materials
I bought a router template guide and it wasn't what I wanted it was made out of wood I want it the metal parrot plus you had to use their hinges I tried to get in touch with cabinetparts company but no luck I guess I'm stuck with this cheap hinge router guide!!!
this device in the big picture was really the Day saving product...Although possible I would not want to install Soss style hinges without it. This and the proper router, bit and router guide ( absolutely necessary) made the three step set up-route and install process flawless... BUY one you'll have it for life... its value cannot me measured by it's price.!!!
This little object (with the proper router base) made for the whole simplicity of the job.. while it fits only a certain recommended "Porter Cable" router... amd maybe other's with the proper router base hole size, with the combination of specified guide and router... the Soss install using this piece and the Router Guide was simple.... GET one set up your router for the specific SOSS hinge size - leave it as an install kit for yourself and you'll look and be a PRO immediately!!!
This review is about similar Soss Hinges. (UIP-RGB100)
Bought the 12 mm barrel hinges for some fly boxes. They were pretty decent, but not all of them were created equal. Some of them out of the box were quite a bit stiffer and grittier feeling. I used white lightning dry lubricant to loosen them up, seemed to work alright. I recommend investing in a good marking gauge, a quality 12 mm brad point bit and an accurate drill press. Your layout has to be spot-on with these, there's no room for error or adjustment. Over all I was pleased with the purchase, ordering from CabinetParts.com however is another issue. $14 for shipping a tiny package in snail mail is ludicrous, not to mention the tracking number I received from them was for somebody else's order. Hope this helps

Their website was excellent.
The knobs and pulls I purchased were just like described. The came on time, actually earlier than expected. Easy and beautiful!
CabinetParts.com had exactly what I wanted. They provided the required hardware with the item. No reason for me to contact customer support. Everything worked and looked as expected.
New hinges worked well, very satisfied. Question! Is there an adjustment screw for spring force? Thanks.
