Customer Reviews

This door switching kit helped us swap our freezer door to open away from a heat source and keep the contents inside at temp. It was easy to swap out with the instructions.


just by having this small mechanism made it easier for us to change one of our freezers/refrigerators to a side-by-side for low cost, well worth it!!

These are heavy and easy to use to replace the as shipped hinges to the opposite hand. It was a pretty easy change but did require a little help to hold the door a couple of time.


This was very convenient. Inexpensive & it was really easy to install. Would recommend this to everyone that needs to change the way their door opens

Worked great to switch the direction of our fridge door opening, remedying the fact that it stuck me in a corner every time I opened it! Lol!

from La Petite Kitchen on

Easy to install and switch door around to open from other side. Without this we probably wouldn't be able to use the fridge as efficiently because of its location.

bought an avantco freezer and needed to switch door swing. Perfect fit and real easy to install. Thanks again webstaurant for making it so easy to purchase and customize products.

We ordered the Avantco CFD-1FF freezer which came as a right handed opener. We needed to convert it to a left-handed open so we tried to order the parts needed according to the user manual of the freezer but it wasn't an item on Webstaurantstore. I then chatted with a lovely Webstaurantstore employee who helped point me to the correct product. My father easily switched the door to a left-open once we received this kit. Now we have the perfect freezer for our line.


These hinges were a life savers for us. They are Very durable and are really easy to install. They are are true bargsin at this price

Knowing we were going to have to switch the door swing on our new line freezer, we ordered these with it. Very easy to install and the door looks/works like a factory fit.
