New LARGE Neat HingeBuy NOW
These large brass neat hinges are ideal for larger boxes. Not only are there six screwholes rather than the standard four for each hinge, the screw size is also a very robust no 4 instead of a no 3. The length of screw is therefore 25mm rather than 16mm or 5/8 inch. This additional length provides greater support, anchoring the hinge to the box. The hinges are 60mm long x 9.5mm wide, with a 3.85mm leaf thickness. The standard 9.5mm or 3/8“ cutter can be used to fit these mighty hinges. (NB there will be an additional postage charge to anywhere outside the UK).
