Worked perfectly !
Exactly what I needed. These are perfect for 2 pieces that you latch together, but also separate. I used them to latch cornhole game boards together in order to carry them. Then, I unlatch & separate at the hinges shown here. Works like a charm! THANK YOU !

worked great
I built a casket and did the hardware store hinges.... oh wow ... you'd be surprised how many time you take the lids off to work on them... Took a moment to figure out how they worked .... but then the mortise is smaller, the lids just pop off, it's nice ... I've bought multiple sets as I plan to make casket building my life's work.

These hinges are EXCELLENT! In late...
These hinges are EXCELLENT! In late 2010 I searched for 3 months to find the proper hinge hardware for a Shaker inspired table I designed. The table had hidden storage under the table top. The table legs stand out 3/8" from the aprons. So, most hinged lid hardware would not work for me. These hinges allow me to move the hinge point past that 3/8". Look at the attached image of the hinge with the tape measure to see if they might work for your application. My first table had an red oak 15"x50" top. I used 4 hinges but that is likely overkill. I used 2 friction lid supports items 25635 and 25643 to hold up that top. I have also made toy chest/blanket chests with 2 of these hinges and spring loaded toy box lid supports. These hinges allow your lids to have an even overhang on the back and front, unlike the more common piano hinge. I mortise them into the aprons with a simple plywood template I created to use with a bearing guided straight bit. I don't really use the separable part of the hinge after the build leaves my shop because I use lid support hardware. The screws that come with the hinges have been suitable to all my finished work to date. They have held just fine in the red oak, hard maple and even in western pine.

Hinges are easy to install for me. But the screws need to be bigger or the holes smaller for the two hole smaller hinge piece. I have had hinges pop off but the screws were still attached to the wood. I now use other larger countersunkwood screws to hold the hinges in place. I will still continue to use these hinges though.

1. Size: 1 3/4 wide, 1 1/2 deep (closed).2. Attachment: Lip mount only, a minimum of 1 inch lip req'd. Must mortise the lip 1/16 to get lid to fit close.3. Color: might be called antique brass, mine were a lot closer to black.I purchased a set for an instrument case. They were not suitable due to the lip width requirement. Might be great for a casket where they are used only once.

cremation box hinges
first problem is there are no instructions with them. I called rockler people about this they told me they would have to research this, they could not find any instructions. I'm still waiting for a call back that was four weeks ago. When I did figure out how they worked I found that if your box and lid did not have a 1 inch thickness you had part of the hinge sticking into to the case, don't look good. I used them in making my wife's cremation box, the picture on the web site shows the full hinge sitting on wood, not the case if your box thickness is less then 1 inch.

Separable hinges for casket lids
These things are a joke! The first time my son and I put the lids on the casket, they bent. I had to get regular hinges.

I have built 2 of these before. I modified them to use as offering boxes at our church.<br />All I had to do was make a slot on the top and a padlock for security. I also built a matching<br />stand and attached them to the well. It has worked very well for several years.

These worked very well on the first casket I built, they are tricky to get everything aligned. If you are not careful they can bend under the weight and leverage of the lid.

How do I install seperable hinges part # 33575?
Deborah A on Dec 18, 2018
Can this be used on a lid that over hangs box?
Harold H on Jan 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Probably not. Separating the lid (or 2 bag boards in my case) works best at about 150-180 degrees of opening.
Is there a left and right or do you only need 1?
