Sierra Pacific Engineering and Products' lift-off hinges, otherwise known as “take-apart hinges” or “slip-joint hinges,” are useful in any situation where a lid or door will be opened frequently. For example, shipping crates and cases may need lids that are easily removed and replaced. Lift-off hinges also allow a door to be removed, repainted and replaced, without the use of tools.
Our industrial quality lift-off hinges come in different styles, leaf widths, lengths, thicknesses, orientations and pin lengths to fit any application. Some lift-off hinges, called loose-joint hinges, are double wrapped, with a loose pin fitting into two separate, but identical, leaves. Others, called flag-joint hinges, come in male and female versions, with the male leaf assembly containing a staked pin, and the female leaf having a receptacle for the pin. These may be purchased separately or as a set.
A lift-off hinge can have a left-hand, right-hand, or reversible orientation, for use on doors that open either left or right. These come with or without drill holes (for mitered hinges).
SPEP also carries barrel hinges with or without brackets, and with optional grease fittings and washers. We supply replacement washers and hinge pins, which come in standard diameters, as needed.
SPEP offers lift-off hinges in a number of materials, including aluminum, steel, ABS plastic, die-cast zinc, and solid brass. Our long-lasting stainless steel lift-off hinges are able to resist staining and corrosion from the elements, with minimal maintenance.
We stock our hinges in a number of finishes including mill, passivated, zinc plated, black matte powder coating, chrome, and clear coating, in order to coordinate with your product’s look and feel.
At SPEP, we design and manufacture our products using an ISO 9001 certified process and rigorous testing to make sure that each lift-off hinge is of the highest quality. Contact a SPEP representative to place a custom order.
