I am planning on using Blum 110 degree self closing clip top hinges for some shop cabinets I’m building but I’m not sure the best type of hinge plate to use. I know I need the 0mm plate and I want a screw on version but there are still the one piece, two piece, and cam adjust plates.

Is one better than the other in terms of ease of install and durability?

Thanks

why 2 piece? i use 1 piece, seems easier than a 2 piece

I like the 2 piece because it has the third hole for mounting. Plus you don’t have to loosen and re tighten the mounting screws over and over when adjusting.
I don’t like how the one piece just looks like a stamped out plate, although i’m sure it’s strong enough.

As far as ease, no different.

I like the plate AG posted, but I don’t like drilling my screws so close to the edge, (since most of my cabinets are of the european style) although the 6600 has the screws a little farther in. Plus for an inset door there just kinda weird. (and you have to knock the tits off)

How does the adjustment work on the two piece? Is it also a cam?
