What type of hinge is this?
« on: September 06, 2020, 08:34:39 pm »
Hi folks,

I found this hinge in my box of random crap, and it would have been perfect for our new brick duck house, except there's only one of them.

Can anybody tell me what this type of hinge is called, so I can see if I can find some more for sale?

Thanks!  :thumbsup:

I don't know Womble, but it looks like something off a vehicle and my guess would be a very old tailgate hinge or a van rear load door hinge? Pretty unlikely you'd find another I would think?

It's not for a heavy window is it?

If you can't get another one could you fit it in the middle of where you need it.  Looks strong enough to hold anything

I wondered about a window too - the kind which opens with a gap at the hinge end so you can get your arm round and clean the outside from the inside. Very wartime military prefab with metal windows looking.  But Chrismahon's idea is probably the right one (although who paints their vehicle with gloss white?) so a trip to the scrappy's might turn one up

I too was thinking prefab galv steel windows from the 40's? 50's? 60's??? but those I recall were actually cast as parts of the frames - they weren't bolt on. So that might indeed suggest vehicle of the era - it's not quite the same as the back door hinge of a series landrover - at least not the S2A I had - but it does remind me of them slightly.


good luck finding a match.

Well..... I spoke to my father-in-law, who was probably the original source of this particular bag of crap, and he thinks it came from some old French doors, which I think makes sense.

I've tried googling around that though, and come up with nothing. TBH the lid for the duck house isn't all that complicated, so I'll probably just get some heavy duty T-hinges.

Watch this space for more "what the hell has Womble found in his shed?" posts though. Quite often I'll see in a Haynes Manual etc, "use a spring compressor", or "with a ball joint splitter"...... then I have to search google images to discover if I've already got one lying around that the previous people left. It turns out that usually I have, and just didn't know it. I think it goes with the username!  ;D

Yes, I agree - we were both very close.  :eyelashes: :eyelashes:   I did think of really big windows, like patio door type  :thumbsup:

Tell you what, you've won a hinge.



You'll have to share it though, as I've only got one of them.

Ha!  Doganjo and I are far too old and wiley to fall for that old trick.  She can have it  :bow: and I will know my baby hinge has not been split. Now where's my halo?

Oh but I'm generous too and have no need of it - now which charity could you send it direct to on my our behalf, @Womble  :innocent: :innocent: :roflanim: :roflanim: :roflanim:

Tell you what Womble - you keep - you're bound to need such an amazing single hinge next week otherwise.  You could use it to put a small window in the duck house  ;D


I think it's called an articulating hinge, a bit late now  ::)
