Hinge Accessories & Tools
Hinge accessories are products that can be used with hinges or help to install hinges. Our butt hinge marker tool works like a chisel by cutting the outline of a square butt hinge quickly and easily all in one step which saves time if you’re cutting a hinge mortise by hand, the old-fashioned way. Hinge pin door closers are used with existing hinges and are spring loaded devices that take the place of the factory hinge pin and will close the door through spring tension. If you need to adjust the fit of your door, our plastic hinge shims will do just that, by spacing the hinge away from the jamb. The age-old carpenters trick is to use cardboard as shims, which eventually deteriorates and allows play between the hinge and the jamb. Security studs for door hinges are an easy way to keep your door hinges safe from tampering. With security studs installed on your hinges, the would-be intruder will be foiled when attempting to remove the hinge pins that would normally allow the two halves of the hinge to slide apart, gaining easy access to what’s behind the door.
