Yellow Zinc-Plated Drop Leaf Hinges
The hinges were just what I needed and came with the exact screws that almost impossible to find at the big box stores. The hinges were easy to install and work perfectly.
I would recommend these hinges to anyone who is looking for hinges for a straight edge fit on a drop leaf.

Perfect Hinges
I used these hinges on a maple drop leaf table I was building and they were excellent. They were very strong and when the leaf is up it was sturdy and you could hardly see the seam!,,,Thank you Rockler!!

The hinges were excellent. Seated well, worked smoothly. Included screws were convenient. The shaped edge version requires that you rout a groove for the hinge barrel. It would have been helpful if sizes and instructions for this were included with the product. Nonetheless, an excellent product.

Robert C on Aug 24, 2015
I am building sewing tables that have a drop leaf at the back. Pull the table away from the wall and raise the leaf. This provides ample room for longer fabrics, and prohibits anyone from setting items on the back of the sewing table. This particular hinge us specifically to hold a drop leaf.
Paula W on Jul 16, 2015
Normally, I would just use one of the hinges I have in my hardware drawers, but this one appears to be exactly what I need for a successful job completion.

I intend to use these hinges on a drop leaf butcher block countertop with the leaf being 56 inches long. Is two hinges enough or should I install four?
Larry W on Jun 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: How wide and thick is this leaf? A typical butcher block counter top of 1 1/2" thickness and of any significant width is possibly beyond the capabilities of any number of these hinges. At minimum I would consider five hinges (about 11" apart) with extra long screws into both sides of the hinge.
What is the difference in length the long side vs the short side not the overall length, but the length of each side as the pivot point being the center?
Andrew S on May 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Long side goes on leaf so screws are beyond any curved edge.
With the straight edge hinge, is there a gap when the leaf is up? Or is it flush with the table? I really don't want a gap so I may need to purchase the other hinge.
Laura W on Mar 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No there should not be a gap with these hinges. You can also use a drop leaf edge to have a better joint when up.
Could I please ask what is the thickness of the material the hinge is made of?

I presume that the material is steel (with zink on surface)?
Jens Egil on Nov 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 3/32 and steel
