Have you ever noticed that most houses do not have doors wide enough for your wheelchair? I have!
Now there is an easy fix for those doors that does not require you to bring in a construction team!
These amazing hinges allow the door to open up all the way, so the door does not reduce the full width of the doorway (usually adds 2 inches).
I have installed a few with the help of my dad or my wife and we had it done in about half an hour.
They are also known as: Swing Clear Hinges, Offset Hinges, Wide Throw Hinges and Swing Away Hinges.
I have found that this simple fix saves a lot of time and trouble to make my life easier and I know it could help you too if you are ever in the situation where you need an extra inch or two to get through a door!
The Swing Away Offset Door Hinges Satin Nickel add two inches to doorway openings to allow access for most wheelchairs or walkers. Offset door hinges can be easily installed as they use the same screws and holes as the existing hinge and are ideal for most bathroom doors. These cost effective swing away door hinges can be retro-fitted to handle most residential doors. Offset Door Hinges are ideal for households that use wheelchairs or walkers as well as for Assisted Living Facilities to comply with ADA regulations.
Note: At least three inches of clearance on the inside of the door between the wall and the edge of the door jam is needed in order for the hinge to work properly. Fits interior residential doors.
