Specialty Butler Tray Table Hinges
Whether you have been building something extraordinary or are simply running short on furniture hinges, you can find everything you need right here for a fair price. Butler trays reached the height of popularity during the 18th century, but they continue to be made today. These detachable trays are often deep, with folding sides that rest on an X-shaped support. Depending on how you use your butler tray table, you may need to replace your butler table hinges to ensure stability for years to come. If you are looking for something as specific as a butler tray hinge, you have come to the right place. At HardwareSource, we pride ourselves in providing an unparalleled customer service, an unforgettable shopping experience, and the widest selection of hinges you will find anywhere online.
A traditional butler hinge is specially designed for folding tables that require additional stability. Hinges of this type allow tray tops to fold out up to a 90-degree angle, and they snap flat in the locked position to remain hidden from view. Many of the butler tray hinges we supply are faithfully reproduced from old-fashioned hinges that were used on antiques and high-end pieces of furniture. These specialty hinges are also well-suited to folding card tables, picnic tables, wooden ironing boards, and other furnishings. We offer antiqued, polished, and satin brass as well as stainless steel hardware to suit any need or requirement. In any finish, brass hinges are rich with golden undertones that work exceptionally well with ornate furnishings and warm hues. Stainless steel hinges provide a clean and contemporary look as well as excellent resistance to corrosion and rust, so you won't have to worry about depreciation when it comes to your work.
Quick Tip: Before you decide on the type of hinge you are going to get, you will need to determine what size hinge you need. Measure the existing hinge from top to bottom and then from side to side. Does the hinge have squared or radius corners? A 1/4-inch radius will match the curvature of a dime and a 5/8-inch radius will match the curvature of a nickel. Make sure you are ordering the correct thickness by measuring the thickest point of the existing hinge in its flat position.
You can narrow your search from the start by selecting any desired hinge attributes in our Shopping Options column. Our butler hinge collection encompasses a wide variety of sizes, ranging from 2 to 3 1/4 inches. Some of the hinges in this selection fold back a full 180 degrees onto the table and mortise flush into the surface of the table.
Of the 4,000+ hinges we supply, butler table hinges are somewhat of a specialty. Every product we supply is in stock and ready for immediate delivery to your doorstep. We make it as easy as possible to order online as well as by phone, fax, or mail. We would be glad to help you find the perfect hinge for your project.
