Adjustable Locking Hinges provide positive locking at any 10° increment. Once locked, the hinge becomes an absolutely rigid joint, able to withstand 500 inch-lbs of torque (5:1 safety factor). Applications include adjustable fixtures, rotating fixtures, welding fixtures, trunnion mounting, adjustable handles, foldable handles, adjustable part trays, adjustable shelves, adjustable racks, adjustable and/or fold-away work surfaces, positive positioning of lighting or nozzles, and collapsible structures. Patent numbers 5,586,363 and 5,689,999. Other patents pending. Made in USA.
Inline Model: Hinge extensions line up in the same plane. Total range of movement is 220° — see Dimensions page for part numbers.
Offset Model: Hinge extensions are offset to allow full 360° rotation. Offset hinges should usually be used in pairs, to avoid off-center loading on a single hinge and ensure full strength. Make sure that rotating loads are balanced
