Hinged bookcase doors are our most popular secret doors!

A long-lasting, secure and secret hinged bookcase involves much more than slapping hinges on a standard bookcase door.

The technology behind our patented hinged bookcase doors has been developed over 14 years of being in business.

Not All Bookcase Doors Are The Same

We consistently get frantic calls from people who either had their contractor build them a door or they purchased a hinged bookcase from a budget secret door manufacturer online. Very often the client is disappointed when they first see that their secret bookcase is not as impressive as they imagined, with the issues only getting worse as they door begins being used.


Their large investment to build their door turns out to have been wasteful. Often, these issues stem from the inadequate hinges often used for secret doors.

Often times a builder or budget manufacturer will use piano hinges or basic 2-point hinges. With such rudimentary hardware, warping and damage are inevitable.
