Our Galvanized, Malleable Steel Butt Hinges are the heavy duty solution you need to hang your commercial and industrial chain link gates. These tough hinges are designed to open 90 degrees, but can be made to open a full 180 degrees with the use of an adapter. The heavy galvanized coating holds up well in all climates, protecting the underlying steel from rust and corrosion. Most gate under 8' tall will use 2 of these hinges per gate. Gates 8' - 12' tall should use at least 3 hinges.
Butt Hinges, or Box hinges as they are sometimes referred to, sit on top of your gates brace rails, and swing loosely inside the collar, making for a smooth opening and closing motion.

To install butt / box hinges, put the large end around your gate post and secure with the included bolts and nuts. Take the collar end piece off and put it around your 1 5/8" or 2" gate frame. The gates framework horizontal rails should sit on top of the hinges so that they support the weight of the gate and facilitate a smooth swinging motion, so you will probably need an extension at the bottom of your chain link gate's vertical rail. The bottom hinge will sit just above the ground and the gate will slide along the circumference of the collar. If you find that the collar is cutting into your framework, then you can use a hinge bearing plug to sit between the hinge and the gate.
