Continuous Hinges with ETP Prep

Every week I am having a nightmare order. What is it? Full mortise continuous hinges prepared for electric power transfer.

Some hinge companies have a form to fill out to show where, exactly, you want the prep to be. Other hinge companies leave you more on your own. Typically what happens is that the order is held up at the factory because of the absence of some detail.

When ordering full mortise continuous hinges prepared for EPT, always remember to tell your vendor, in addition to the usual details of finish and height, the distance between the top of the hinge and the centerline of the prep, the handing, and whose EPT you will be using. That will save us all a lot of trouble.
