The thing I don t like about the Blum compact hinge is the door gap. Door gap mean that the hinge side of the door wont lay real close to the face frame. There will be a fairly good gap. To me it s objectionable. Your mileage may vary.

Like Rich says, I believe with proper instillation the should last fine.

I believe that the 38N type hinge screws into the edge of the face frame, not the face. I don’t have a good graphic, and could be wrong, but I’m looking at the Grass America compacts on some cabinets in my house and that’s how they are mounted.
