Guden Dual Purpose Latch Hinges
RONKONKOMA, NY -- H. A. Guden Co., Inc. now offers an expanded line of latch hinges with spring-loaded chamfered pins. Doors mounted with them can be easily secured in place and removed. For applications where there is limited room for swing they are a useful alternative to slip joint hinges, which usually require a 90° arc to clear the door from the cabinet frame. Guden's latch hinges also serve a dual purpose, as they function equally as well as spring-loaded lid or door latches.
Four standard sizes are offered, ranging from 7/8" to 2-3/4" long, in thicknesses of .040", .050" and .062". Latch hinges are available in stainless or zinc-plated steel, with or without holes, left and right handed.
For heavier doors and lids, heavy-duty latch hinges are offered in .125" and .187" thicknesses, in stainless or zinc-plated steel, and lengths of 2" and 3". Guden's heavy-duty latch hinges are also offered with an optional pin hold back feature to lock the pin during assembly and removal. They can be punched for screw, bolt or rivet installation, or manufactured to completely custom specifications.
