Butt hinges can use either a central pin or a ball joint to move. They’re meant to be simple, but their simple design also makes them a relatively reliable option for those looking for an easy installation for their project and a hinge that can last for years to come.
One of the most common door hinges is the butt hinge. Butt hinges are composed of two identical leaves – one that’s attached to the moving component and the other on the fixed component. They’re attached by a curled barrel, also known as the knuckle, which allows the door to open. Butt hinges do require you to cut a mortise to let the doors close properly.
Pin - The rod that holds the leaves together, inside the knuckle.
Knuckle - The hollow—typically circular—portion creating the joint of the hinge through which the pin is set. The knuckles of either leaf typically alternate and interlock with the pin passing through all of them. (aka. loop, joint, node or curl).
Leaf - The portions (typically two) that extend laterally from the knuckle and typically revolve around the pin.
