The 0mm crank hinge is the general use hinge and is used for most cabinet door applications with an overlay of 3/8" to 3/4". This hinge may be marked with "Made in Slovenia" and the number 1458 on the back side of the large "cup" of the hinge.
Do I need Press-on or Screw-on hinges?
Standard hinge installation screws work well in solid wood stock and plywood, but screws lose strength in medium density fiberboard (MDF) or particleboard. If your cabinet doors or cases are made from these materials, you may want to choose hinges that include barbed plastic inserts that fit in predrilled holes. Tightening the installation screw pushes each dowel against the wall of the hole for a firm grip.

|Note: The press-on type hinge was developed for the manufacturers as a way to automatically align hinges and place them on the cabinet door in the proper location by just "pressing" them into the holes. The dowels in that case are already mounted. If you are replacing this type of hinge, you can get either type of hinge and either use the new dowels (which are already attached to the hinge) or you can use the screw-on and just use the screws already in your doweled door.|
