Create a hidden sanctuary in your home with a flush-mount Hidden Door Kit. The kit contains everything you need to successfully conceal a doorway behind a bookshelf, providing discreet access to the most sacred areas of your home. Whether you want to build your own super hero hideout or just conceal the entrance to your panic room, the heavy-duty hinges will provide the perfect mounting surface for a hidden doorway.
The hinges used in the Hidden Door Kit are designed to work with in-swing or out-swing doors, making them useful for a variety of applications. They can support up to 250 pounds, which is sufficient for most light-duty bookshelves and their contents. The kits come with instructions for constructing a lightweight bookshelf, and each part of the installation process is carefully outlined for the best results. Each unit comes with two door hinges, which is enough hardware to hold one bookshelf door. The hinges may be painted to match the space, though this is not necessary.
All hardware, directions and other materials are made in the U.S.A. for superior quality. The door kit is priced economically, allowing homeowners to install a hidden doorway for under $150. The kit is best suited for individuals with an intermediate to advanced knowledge of carpentry. A plastic wedge for creating a friction catch is included, but door locks are sold separately. The hinges are backed by a limited lifetime warranty through the manufacturer.
