The Heavy Duty Hinge Pin is used to secure female/male hinges and “T”/male hinges on floating docks. They include a galvanized castle nut instead of the stainless clip used on our standard hinge pins. Heavy-duty hinge pins are recommended for use when the docks are on rough water or in areas with a large amount of wake.
Our hinge pins feature a stainless steel bolt wrapped in a sleeve of nylon bushing material, a stainless steel clip, and stainless steel washers. Nylon bushing material reduces noise and prevents metal-on-metal damage. Replace bushing material and hinge pins as soon as they begin to show signs of wear for the longevity of your hinges. Failure to replace worn hinge pins or bushing material can result in damage or the stretching out of the holes on the male, female, and “T” hinges.
Metal Craft Docks manufactures all hinge pins in Northeast Ohio. Our hinge pins have been used in freshwater marine applications for over 40 years.
