Excellent for use in porch gliders, swings, gliding rockers and foot rests. Installing a pivot hinge simply requires boring holes in two mating sections.
These pivot hinges also feature a nylon, self-lubricated bushing and a lock nut that never lets loose.

I used a pair of these hinges on a cradle I made for my first child. It is the one featured in Jeff Miller's book titled Children's Furniture Projects. The cradle was awesome however the hinge mechanism used in the plan was only adequate. It used to creak and squeak until I used these pivot hinges. Last thing you want to hear when you are trying to quiet a sleeping baby is a creaky pivot hinge. These hinges worked awesome and it took little thought to adapt them to my project. The first two kids had to endure creaks but my last child slept in peace and quiet. happy customer.

Used the pivot hinges to restore an old glider chair. It was a snap with some minor modifications to the chair framing. Excellent product.

I use these hinges for a folding bench I make. They have proven to be a fine application. The only change I made was to use stainless steel locknuts to allow me to tension them correctly and not have the nut come loose.
"I have made several online orders from Rockler, and the customer service has been great. While I have not had an unreasonable number of complications, I have had a few. Each time the folks at Rockler were very quick to respond, easy to work with and resolved the issue in the best way imaginable. Many thanks! I will be a customer for many years to come." -
