Even with routine care and maintenance, no door or gate is safe from the ravages of time. After years of not only being exposed to the elements but also opened and closed repeatedly, it may come as no surprise that it's finally time to replace the gate hardware of your home. At HardwareSource, we offer a distinctive solution in the form of T-hinges. A T-hinge, otherwise known as a strap hinge, is aptly named for the shape it makes with a narrow mounting surface and sleek design. Many of the tee hinges in this selection are made purely for decorative purposes and designed to hold no more than 100 pounds. If you are looking for a sturdy solution that will last you for many years, look no further than our heavy-duty T-strap hinges. We keep our inventory stocked with items made of only the highest quality materials.
We offer a variety of base materials and finishes to choose from!
Whether you are retrofitting an old gate or you simply want to give the exterior of your home an update, there are plenty of options to choose from in our selection of T-hinges. Any strap hinge that features a non-handed design or comes with a reversible hinge pin is perfect for either left-hand or right-hand applications. Some hinges come with a removable hinge pin for easy installation and removal. Having a non-removable hinge pin will make your gate even more secure. Other tee hinges come fully equipped with special bearings to increase the life expectancy of your hardware.
As an alternative to standard butt hinges for gates, T-strap hinges give you a decorative option that is sure to never go out of style. We offer a wide variety of base materials to choose from, including brass, bronze, stainless steel, and steel. Solid brass is remarkably durable and it even produces a subtle grain pattern that allows for better adhesion when it comes to finishes. We currently carry polished brass and polished chrome. Solid bronze is beloved and commonly used in coastal areas and harsh environments, because it does not deteriorate. Plus, bronze has a living finish, which means that any bronze strap hinge you choose will age gracefully and develop a pleasing patina over time. There are a wide range of benefits of choosing steel or stainless steel for any exterior update. Due to its impressive strength, low cost, and versatility, steel has become one of the most commonly used metals in the world.
We proudly offer a large assortment of T-hinges, including heavy-duty strap hinges, ornamental tee hinges, self-closing hinges, and so much more. Please feel free to contact us with any questions by calling, emailing, or sending us a note.

Plain Bearing: Plain bearing is the simplest type of bearing. They are a good low cost option for lightweight doors.

They are recommended for heavy doors and doors fitted with closers. Roller Bearing: Roller bearings are able to support very heavy loads. Many of our heavy duty gate hinges are equipped with roller bearings.
Face Frame: Face frame cabinets have a “frame” that attaches to the front of the cabinet. The face frame gives the cabinet box extra strength while adding dimension to the door fronts. Face frame cabinets are commonly made by American cabinet manufactures. Frameless: Frameless cabinets do not have a face-frame, and instead rely on thicker side panels for strength. Frameless cabinets are very common in Europe, but have steadily been making their way into America, as they lend themselves well to contemporary and modern designs.
