DIY dog door hinge

non-mortise hinge close up I first started using plain old hinges for the new plastic lattice dog doors.

These non-mortise hinges allow for a full swing in both directions. I'm not sure Lucy would notice, but the exit swing with a regular hinge stops sooner than the entrance side. This could be a factor with bigger dogs, but Lucy just scoots down to get through.

Where did you buy that hinge or what is it officially called?

Anonymous --- These are called non-mortise hinges. We got ours at the local hardware store, but you can find them on Amazon.
