Offset pivots provide better weight distribution and can accommodate taller doors. A 3/4″ Offset is when a pivot point is located 3/4″ from the heel edge of the door and 3/4″ from face of door. While a 1-1/2″Offset is when a pivot point located 3/4″ from the heel edge of the door and 1-1/2″ from face of door. Extended offsets should be used when there is cladding on the face of door or trim on the frame. Offset Pivots Include, 117, 117 1/4. 147, L147, and the 195.

Rixson 180 is the standard full mortise top pivot for most offset pivot sets and floor closers (Also comes in H180 for Heavy Duty). The L180 is the standard top pivot for L147, L117 pivots and L27 floor closers. The 380 is for flush door and frame application only.
