What is a Strap Hinge?

A strap hinge is a type of hinge that has two long flaps which are generally triangular in shape; one strap is screwed into the surface of a moving part, such as a door or gate, and the other into the adjacent stationary surface. The long flaps of the strap hinges provide added stability for the door or gate.

Strap hinges are typically used for door hinges (such as barn doors, shed doors, and garage doors), gate hinges, and cabinet hinges, and are meant to be seen. Whether you prefer simple strap hinges that will add a little extra style to your door, or want more fancy strap hinges for your gate entrance which people will notice, HingeOutlet.com has the design for you. We carry both basic strap hinges and decorative strap hinges in a variety of sizes and finishes.

Our standard strap hinges range in size from 2 inches to 10 inches, and are available in stainless steel, zinc, and galvanized finishes. They also come in heavy duty and lighter weights, which are good for smaller applications. Our decorative strap hinges, which have more intricate designs, range in size from 4 inches to 10 inches, and are available in a black finish. All of our decorative strap hinges have the added advantage of being heavy duty in construction, so you can be confident that your barn door or garage door is secure.

To select the best strap hinges for your project, be sure to check the Safe Working Load listed under each product. This can vary from product to product, even if the length of the strap hinge is the same. The length of strap hinges is determined by measuring from the middle of the hinge to the tip of one flap.
