Hinge mechanisms that facilitates access to internal components associated with a cabinet, e.g., a fiber optic cabinet, are provided. The hinge mechanisms are adapted for use with a telecommunication cabinet that is of low profile design, e.g., 1U or 2U height. The hinge mechanisms accommodate a combination of motions, e.g., a sliding motion and a hinging motion, whereby the limited space associated with a low profile cabinet is overcome and access to internal componentry, e.g., patch panels, is facilitated. A pair of hinge mechanisms are provided with a door. The hinge mechanisms mount outward of the cabinet so as to permit the door to be pivoted downward without engagement between with another cabinet or other structure positioned therebelow. A U-shaped member may be mounted to the door and sliding pins to translate motion from the hinge mechanisms to the door.
