Overview

Similar to hinges in laptop computers, these heavy-duty cast-zinc hinges allow virtually any size lid to open smoothly, hold its position, and then easily close - all with little effort and no additional hardware! Now available in two attractive finishes, Satin Nickel and Rustic Bronze, to complement any project - from chests, to boxes, to storage units, and more! Designed to fit 3/4" thick stock. Hinges are available in 15, 30, 40, and 60 inch-pound ratings. Screws included.

  • Support any size lid by simply adding more hinges.
  • Safe for toy box lids and perfect for cedar chests.
  • Unique torsion mechanism holds lid in any position.
  • Hinges can be installed for both overlay and flush fitting lids.
  • Torsion mechanism is tested to 25,000 cycles to assure a long working life.
  • For ultra-fast and easy installation, use our Torsion Hinge JIG IT® (sold separately).

How many hinges do you need? Use the Torsion Calculator to help determine your ideal hinge combination. For best results, choose a combination of hinges that provides as close to your lid's required support as possible. A simple formula can also be used to determine suggested hinge combinations: (Lid Depth x Lid Weight in Pounds) / 2 = Suggested Inch-Pounds of Support. As an example, if the formula returns a value of 125 inch-pounds, suggest using two 60 inch-pound hinges. If three or more hinges are required, the support capacity of the outside hinges must be the same. It is also suggested that hinge configuration is symmetrical.

Installation Instructions:

  • Step 1: Attach hinge to lid with 3/4" screws (included). For the lid to be flush with the back of the box, the top of the hinge should be 1-9/16'' from the back edge of the lid. To create an overlay, increase the 1-9/16'' dimension by the desired amount of overhang. NOTE: Our Lid-Stay Torsion Hinge JIG IT (#23625, sold separately) lets you attach the hinge to the lid in seconds, and requires no measuring. Ideal for both flush and overlay applications.
  • Step 2: With all hinges attached to the lid, position the lid on the back of the box. Complete the installation using 1'' and 3/4'' screws.

Floyd C from Harrison, AR Posted December 22, 2012
Torsion hinges worked out great, I had to route out an area for them to work, since  they are made for a 3/4"  thickness. The online calculator worked out to 95 lbs but I was able to use 2-60 lb hinges with no problem.

Tom C from Dayton, TX Posted December 17, 2012
Used two 60# hinges for my daughters blanket chest. They are the best thing going to keep the look of the chest simple and they are outstanding quality. Do order the jig for installation, I did not and it made an easy installation into a long drawn out affair. These will be the only hinges I will use in the future. Great Product !!!!

Greg B from Minneapolis, MN Posted December 13, 2012
These hinges are high quality and work just as described. I used 2 60-inch lb hinges on this 18" x 36" lid made from 6/4 Cherry, and they worked great. They are designed to be used on a 3/4" back, but with a little mortising, they can be used with thicker stock.
