The basic, standard residential door hinge is what as known as a plain bearing hinge. It is
simply 2 halves of metal with a pin that joins the halves. It is catigorized by the
type of metal it is made from (steel, stainless steel, or brass), the size of the hinge,
and the style of corner the hinge has.
There are 3 styles of hinge corners: Square, 1/4 Inch Radius (round corners), and 5/8 Inch Radius (round corners)
To determine if you have a 1/4" or 5/8" radius hinge, measure from the beginning
of the curve to where the corner of the hinge would be if it were a square corner.
