Strap hinges are similar to quadrant hinges but are easier to install. There are two different versions -
- The version with the stay built into the hinge is produced from solid brass and made in Spain by hand - a simply beautiful hinge that would work well in a bespoke box. The strap of the hinge measures approximately 35 x 6mm (width x length) and needs to be recessed on one side of the box with a small mortice drilled out for clearance of the integral stay.
- The V-5260 hinges have an integral stop built into the knuckle of the hinge so does not require a second cavity for the stay and is produced of steel and electro-plated brass, making it a great economical option. The strap of this hinge measures approximately 30.5 x 6mm (width x length).
