I love these hinges. They fit easily into my existing blum hinges and work perfectly to prevent large cabinet doors from slamming shut. When installing these, make sure you hook the back end of the clip first and then push the spring back to get the other side of the clip to go in. At first I was trying to just push the entire clip in, but that wasn't proving effective.

These things are fantastic. They snap on easily, are also really easy to remove, and do just what they are supposed to. Build quality is great.

You can get away with one for small cabinet doors, but you definitely need two (one per hinge) for larger doors. I'm putting two on nearly all my doors as that gives a totally silent soft close.

Note that some sellers will try to charge you shipping per hinge, whereas some sellers (e.g. MC&S abbreviated) will not.

The BluMotion from Blum is a very neat device. I would recommend it wholely. I ordered 19 of them to mount on my standard cabinet hinges in the kitchen and bathrooms. I was fortunate that my hinges were made by Blum so the BluMotion was compatible with no problems. The product works as advertised. They recommend using two per door for many doors and three per door for others. I have used only one per door for all doors except one which closes particularly hard. They work like a charm and dampen the closing in a very controlled manner. Installation and removal is super easy, so if they break I can replace them at low cost per unit. I don't expect them to break since all the pieces look and feel like they will last. I was amazed at the ease of installation - from opening the box to completeing 19 installations took about 20 minutes total.

The suppliers (Woodworkers Hardware# exceeded expectations: the order was placed and a delivery estimate was provided. The delivery occurred 2 days before the start of the expected delivery date. It got here fast! Very happy with them. I did find a lower price #2.11 per BluMotion unit) at another online store, but Amazon got the sale because the price was competitive and the website I could actually trust :).

Negatives: it was unclear when researching the product if they would be compatible with my hinges. The hinges I have are not labeled with a product serial number. The product documentation for the BluMotion makes statements similar to "for european hinges". I still don't know what a european hinge is, but apparently mine are compatible. The additional confusion was the photos in the documentation show hinges which do not look like mine, leading to additional uncertainty.

These are very well-made and super-easy to install - literally snap into place. Just make sure you have square, not round, ports in your existing hinges. Also, if you already have self-closing drawers, the action with the door adapters is somewhat different - doors ease closed in one motion, rather than stopping an inch or two from closing, then easing in. Still significantly better than slapping shut, especially if, like me, you have glass inserts!

We found this gadget after we opted NOT to spend hundreds of dollars to upgrade our new Kitchencraft cabinets with the soft close feature. Spent $50 and installed the adapters ourselves. Exact same manufacturer of the hinges on our cabinet doors. The trick of installing is pushing the the front end slightly forward to get the back end to lock in. If it doesn't go in easily you either don't have it properly lined up or you have a defective adapter.

Easy to install, these adapters fit over the original hinge slowing closure allowing for a soft closure. Directions were good, and once I read them, I was able to install on all 30+ cabinet doors in less than an hour. They have held up well over 6 months. Doesn't work on special hinges such as corner hinges or 180 degree hinges.

This product works great. The best part is how easy they are to install. One click, and no screws to drill into your cabinet. They take about 10 seconds per hinge! Best DIY project ever! To uninstall, just pull and they come right off. Also, they seem to be really well-made and sturdy. Im guessing these will be lasting a long time.

If I have any negatives, it would be that they take up a bit more space in your cabinet. Also, on my non-Blum brand Euro hinges, there is a bit of wiggle room creating a bit of noise when the hinge closes. To solve this, I applied one of those Command stickies that come with their removable hooks between the hinge and the adapter, which solved the problem.

Even with those "negatives", I'm still giving this product five stars. Sure, installing new soft close hinges is probably a bit better, but the ease and price of these adapters is a no-brainier. I originally thought I would need to replace all of my hinges to get the soft close effect. No need with this product.

I did some recent renovations to only my island cabinets, so ended up with two different types of hinges, both "European style", the newest being Blum hinges, and not sure what the older brand is.

So comparing both hinges, here is my take on the situation:

For the Blum brand, the adapters click right on to the hinges. I found I only needed one adapter per door, and the soft close worked just fine.

For the other "unknown" European hinges I have, I used two adapters per door, as the soft close was not quite enough with just one per door.

If you're not sure the brand of your European hinge, here's what to look for: on your hinge where it screws into the cabinet, there should be a small square/ rectangle shape.
