A double action hinge is really no different that a regular one. Simply place where desired, mortise them in and install. If it is confusing, look at it as if it was only opening one way at a time. One direction it uses the outside part of the hinge and for the other direction it uses the inside part. As long as you install each hinge on the same edge or in the same direction they work the same as a regular hinge. You are limited as to the thickness of the door you are using and there can not be any door stop as the door must swing both ways.
