The Hinge Connector Kit enables two floating docks to connect end-to-end. Because of the hinge, dock connections are flexible with water movement. Male and female hinges lock together with the use of hinge pins. Hinge pins feature a stainless steel bolt wrapped in a sleeve of nylon bushing material. A stainless steel clip and stainless steel washer secure the bolt in place.
Nylon bushing material reduces noise and prevents metal-on-metal damage. We recommend replacing bushing material and hinge pins as soon as they begin to show signs of wear.
Failure to replace worn hinge pins or bushing material can result in damage including the stretching out of the holes on the male and/or female hinges.
M.C. Docks manufactures both hinges right here in the USA. Metal Craft Docks has been using these hinges in marine applications for over 40 years!
Hinges install easily on docks made of a variety of materials. Attaching hinges to your dock will require fasteners with a 5/16″ diameter. We recommend installing with stainless steel fasteners.
