Cabinet Hinge - "1" or "0" - Settings?

A quick learner from St Davids, PA says:
On the Face Frame Cabinet Compact Hinge #32-343, there appears to be the ability to select a setting, i.e., within the hinge, there's a little "switch" where you can choose an "I" or an "O" setting. Can you provide information as to the purpose/function of this feature?

Hello! That setting has to do with the soft close capability of this hinge. The "I" setting activates it while the "0" setting deactivates it. You mostly want to use the latter on small or lightweight doors.
