Pivot Star C-81 Adjustable Soft-Close Hinge for Standard Cabinet Doors


The award-winning Pivot Star C-81 hinge is the world’s first fully adjustable soft-close hinge. Intricate technical innovations make the Pivot Star C-81 hinge a true hero in the world of cabinetry.

Product Description

The C-81 Pivot Star is a brand new premium soft-close hinge from DTC. Winner of a 2017 iF Design Award for ground-breaking furniture hardware design. The stepless soft-close adjustment is done via cam adjustment on the hinge arm, meaning it is easily reachable after door is installed. Improved linkages inside the hinge improve the functioning so that a reduced amount of force is necessary to open the door, despite the increase in resistance during the longer soft-close stroke.
