I’ve been using the 38N and the older version with the separate mounting plate for years without issues. But like anything if they are abused they are going to fail. I think the biggest risk with these is that they only open 105 deg. If someone over opens a door you risk damaging the hinge, splitting the FF or pulling out the screws. The soft close feature is nice.
