Compact Position Hinge for Small Assemblies

Description

RT-50 position hinge incorporates unique engineering in a compact design to hold the angle of mounted components reliably in any position in especially small assemblies.  It is ideally suited for demanding applications with limited footprints in consumer electronics, mobile devices, small appliances, and others across industries where precise position control for components is necessary and critical.

 

As a value-added option for appropriate applications, a dual-ended mounting configuration enables a single hinge to be used in place of two.  This ultimately can help reduce the amount of hardware and weight in an assembly and promote faster production with fewer parts to handle and install.

 

Hinge shaft-end attachment styles include flag, straight, and exposed knurled shaft (all available with the dual-ended mounting option).  The hinge’s symmetric design eliminates any need to specify and install separate left-side or right-side versions.  Durable zinc die-cast housings and bushings combined with hardened steel shaft and torque elements contribute to hinge longevity.
