A pin staked into position by small dents made in a consistent pattern on the bottoms of the knuckles. Fabricated on line for no additional charge. Standard on S & S 400 series. Recommended for high security applications in which customers want to avoid easy removal of pins.
Various types of bending may be required to fit a hinge into the space allotted for it. All bending is done in our Value Added Department. Variations include:
Pushing one or both leaves toward or beyond the center of the pin.
One leaf swaged the full diameter of pin. Leaves are parallel in the closed position.
One leaf swaged one half of pin diameter.
Half Swaging of Both Leaves
Both leaves swaged one half of pin diameter, with minimum clearance between hinge leaves when parallel.
One leaf swaged to simulate reverse assembly. Leaves do not close to a parallel position.
Pushing one or both leaves away from the center of the pin.
All bending of the leaves other than swaging or offsetting.
