This was the only hinge I...
This was the only hinge I could find that hides the leaf under the table - up out of the way. My leaf was 1.25 thick 9x24 inch so it may have been to heavy. Anyway it worked ok until my kid leaned on it and bent it.

We at the center have several folding dining room tables that have these hinges. We needed to replace them because the tables are fine, just the hinges are old

because I received an email stating that they are not shipping fee...however, I was charge. Please explain

I have used them before and they seem to be the sturdiest. They are not that easy to use but once the leafs are pulled up, they snap into place and do not move.

I could not find this item in any store so I went to your catalog and found the part I needed.

We have a boat table that folds down and the hinges are old and wanted to replace them. So happy that we found Rockler. Can't wait to receive the hinges and replace them.

Rocker had the hardware I needed for my project. The order was easy because they met my asking price and used my Amazon account.

What is load limit on 9" leaf with two hinges and leaf length limits?
Larry F on Jan 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The answer cannot be as specific as the question. Another solution to the problem of supporting a leaf of 9" width is probably preferable.
Using the folding hinge would make it very difficult to fold down. This hinge is much more useful on a folding that takes a square table into a round shape, the leaf being no more than 7"" wide and circular on it perimeter.
A better solution to a wide leaf is a slider that retracts into, and extends from, the main structure of the table.
How many hinges do I need for a 42" x 42" sq. table that has 4 leaves to convert it to a 6" dia. round table?
nina l on Nov 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Four. One in the center of each leaf. the balance of the hinging can be continuous "piano" hinge. The actual diameter of the table will be determined by the diagonal, corner to corner of the 42" table.
Is there a drop leaf hinge stronger so a 18 inch leaf can be accomndated?
charles r on Nov 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The usual solution to the wide leaf is a "sleeper" or in other words a wooden sliding piece that pulls out from under the top to support the leaf once it is raised into position. A typical size for that sliding piece is about 1"wide x 1 1/4" thick and in your case, about 25" long. It would pull out about 12 or 13" and have 12" left under the main top to act as a cantilever.
according to the instructions, the dado is only 1/2 inch wide, how does the dado come into play?
Al M on Apr 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The dado is just a nesting place to allow the hinge to sit flush with the underside of the table. They work great but beware as they are spring loaded and can bite you...FAST. I also threw the hardware in the miscellaneous pile as they are countersink heads and getting the leaf gapping perfect was impossible....(maybe with a hinge centering drill you could do it.....I doubt it) . I am very picky, so I bought pan head screws and washers to replace the countersinks and gained much freedom of adjustments.....Good luck

can they be used in a situation where they are in 90 degree position when open?
clint g on May 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. The rigidity is only effective when the adjoining flats are in line ( at 180 degrees).
If you want the surfaces to be in a locked position then these won't work for you.
Has anyone recessed the hinge into the bottom of the table? The hinges are a little bulky at 3/32 inch thick. Will it still work if you do recess them flush into the bottom?
