NB: Hinges are sold in pairs — a pair being two complete units, enough to hang a door. Confusion arises as we sell hinges as loose-part hinges resulting
in a pair consisting of four separate pieces! Lift-off hinges are handed and the illustration above will help you choose the correct hand. The diagram
assumes the hinges are fixed into edge of door and the side of the reveal — not flat across the face.

Pin Hinges [Loose-part backflap]
Triple E Pin Hinge Winner of
the ABTT Product of the Year. Well,
1984 was a while back now but the
Triple E Hinge remains as popular as
ever. It was specially designed for
the theatre market and resolves
many familiar problems for the
theatre carpenter. It has a sturdy
pin that forms a better fit and can be ‘knocked’ in or out. Offset fixing
holes help to prevent timber splitting, and a centrally located square
hole, to take the head of a 6 mm coach bolt, allows immense strength
for fixing. Notched sides allow for fixing near awkward timber joins.
Each hinge comes complete with a pin. Pins are also sold separately.
but only in 13⁄4” size. Steel, self-coloured.

pieces of scenery which will remain
together permanently, such as flats

fixing between two items that are

position through 270º to its fully open position making them suitable
for folding-gate rostra.

Lift Off Butt Hinges Allows
your doors to be removed from the door
frame for use either when travelling or
for changing doors in a scene change.
Please ensure correct handing when
ordering. The top of page 225 has all
the information. A useful tip is to saw 10
mm off the pin on the lower hinge of a
door. You can then locate the top hinge pin first, then concentrate on
the lower hinge. It is much easier. Steel, self-coloured.

Rising Butt Hinges Designed to
raise a door as it opens, the rising butt
ensures that your doors do not catch
on the carpet or on uneven flooring.
Please ensure correct handing when
ordering. The top of page 225 has all the
information. These hinges tend to selfclose the door as the weight of the door
bears down on the bevel. They won’t
necessarily close the door the whole way but most people notice the
door is moving and shut it behind them rather than leaving it open.
