"Standard" Hinges

Below are our most commonly made hinges and pintles that you may order by simply clicking on the features you want.  These are not "in stock" - they are still hand made after you place your order, so please allow 4 to 6 weeks for delivery.  

If you don't see what you are looking for on this page, please contact us with sketches, photos, or ideas for custom hinges.

Close-up of the rat tail hinge pintle.  This pintle features a lag screw thread on the main body. The tail extends from the pin to help prevent rotation.

A screw in pintle is the same, only without the rat tail.

A drive pintle uses a spike instead of a screw for use in heavy timber.

 

Pintle style "A" for mounting inside the jamb. This type of pintle uses flat head screws and does not show. Left or right hand specific.

 

Pintle style "B" surface mounts for doors that lie in the same plane as the mounting surface.  This is exposed during use so we recommend our forged head lag screws shown below.  Left or right hand specific.

 

Pintle style "C" surface mounts for doors that lie in the same plane as the mounting surface.  This is exposed during use so we recommend our forged head lag screws shown below.

 

Pintle style "C" from the top. Notice that this type of pintle requires an offset in your hinge strap. Not left or right hand specific.

Forged fasteners are included with your hinges
