The male hinge allows for intersecting docks to connect to each other with the use of a “T” hinge. Male hinges are naturally corrosion resistant due to their marine-grade aluminum properties. Hinges bolt to either aluminum or wood floating docks. Hinges are a great option for docks that require the ability to move with water and wave action. Female hinges, t-hinges, hinge pins and attaching hardware sold separately. Additional support or backing plates might be necessary for certain aluminum docks. Be sure to verify with your dock manufacturer.
