Default Hinge for overhead kitchen cupboard

Hi folks!

Our long narrow overhead cupboards were installed without hinges that hold the door open (where you lift the door and the hinge clicks and the door stays open, but if you lift the door again the hinge releases and the door can be closed).

The glass doors are quite heavy (well, to me anyway), and I'd like to put in stay-open hinges. I think there must be a special name for them.

Can anyone tell me what they're called, and/or where I might be able to buy them?

Thanks very much!

Are the doors all glass? Or is there a wooden frame round the glass? If the latter, it should be easy to find what you want. You can keep the hinges and fit a "stay"

Lots of places will sell them on-line, one that comes to mind is Woodfit.

This is just one type, there are others.........

Thank you!

The doors are glass in a metal frame, but at least now I know what I should be looking for, I'm sure I'll find something that will fit.

Much appreciated!
