The Center Hung Pivot Hinge is mortised into the center of the door. Establishing a concealed pivot point which allows the door to open within the plane of the door. The door will pivot based on the location of the set pivot point installed. It is critical to remember that the hinge side of the door and/or jamb must have some type of bevel/radius prep in order for the hinge to swing clear of obstruction. See the illustration below marked "P-2" to see a few examples.

Very often we are asked to explain the difference between the Center Hung Pivot Hinge and the Offset Pivot Hinge. A lot of folks will say they want the Center Hung Pivot Hinge because of the fact that it is concealed without really understanding how this affects the swing of the door and the prep work involved. As explained above the CH Pivot Hinge opens within the plain of the door while the Offset Pivot Hinge throws the door outside of the plain.
