Door hinges - different lengths

Does anyone know if someone sells a door hinge that is longer on one side than the other??

I am looking for one that is standard length on the door jamb but is a few inches longer on the door side....

Longer in which dimension? Why do you need an asymmetric hinge? Strap hinges like used on gates and shed doors are commonly available with one long leg



If you want one longer along the height of the door I have never seen one though I have made them by welding tabs onto a standard hinge. If your screw holes are stripped you can glue wood pegs into the stripped holes or drill new holes in the hinge so the screws go into fresh wood in the door.

Yes - longer height on one side - not width... welding sounds like a hassle.

Those are no mortice hinges...doubt thats what he's looking for. I have seen some with a longer leg on the door...but for the life of me couldn't tell you where. Seems they were on an old house with big heavy solid wood doors.

Think I will be getting some welded up. Was just surprised something like this is not around.
