I have a bath cabinet with a set of hinges that were broken.
I went to Home Depot and a local hardware store and they don't have a
matching one, they look like hinges on this page:
but I don't know how I would get an exact replacement, is there any critical
measurements on the hinge I need to measure off?
I tried to look for a model number on the broken hinge, I don't know if it's
US or European...the only thing I see is a brand name "GELASI" and behind
the plate it says "A-A" and somewhere else a marking "165A48" but I am not
sure about the "165" part since it's so faint it could have been "16S" or
It seems unrealistic I will be able to find a match at a home center so I
may have to do it online. Any idea how I would go about finding a matching
Since the original question was asked in 2007, a mere
8 years ago, I'm going to guess the original asker has
long since gone away, whether they found them or not.
There are any number of hinge vendors on-line. Start
searching thru them for one that looks like the hinge
you need. Lee Valley is a good place to start...
It was worth a shot since I have been searching endlessly with no success. I
ended up ordering one from Rangaire (expensive) but it is not the right one. I
have sent pictures to them and they are going to have their guys attempt to
identify it. I will check out Lee Valley as well. Thanks for that suggestion.

I have the exact same cabinet door hinge as the one described above -- Gelasi
165A48, A-A. It appears to be Japanese. I have tried several online
specialists with no success. Does anyone know where to find a replacement?

I recently replaced a hinge on a bathroom mirror cabinet with "165A48" on it
with the Salice C2AFA99 hinge with B2V3H 0mm mounting plate from Salice Direct.
It took me a LONG time to find a hinge with the exact boring pattern.
