  • Patent number: 6353967
    Abstract: A door hinge which stops the swing-open motion of a door before it can strike an adjacent wall located at ninety degrees to the closed door. By stopping the motion of the door at ninety degrees, the protruding hardware of the door will not penetrate or otherwise damage the adjacent wall. Frequent repairs are therefore avoided. The door hinge is adaptable to various residential and commercial applications.
