Video Transcript for Polar Hardware Enclosed Trailer Parts - Doors - PLR4040 Review

Today we are gonna be taking a look at the T strap hinge for rear trailer doors. This strap hinge lets your rear trailer door swing open 270 degrees, so it's got nice, consistent movement. No binding. No kinking. Opens up all the way. Very easy to operate and control.

The extended length strap is going to provide more contact area with the door, offering excellent support. It's going to help keep the door in position. It's going to prevent sagging and dragging. This is a reversible design, so it allows it to be used on the left hand or right hand doors. It's gonna feature a non-removable pin for maximum security and this is a zinc-plated steel construction that provides durability and superior rust and corrosion resistance. If we take a measurement of the overall length, measuring from edge to edge, so from the back of the hinge to the outer most point of the strap we're gonna get a measurement of about 12 and three-eights of an inch long.

We're gonna take a closer look here at this bracket. The way that this would mount would be in this orientation right here. We're going to take a length measurement of the bracket basically measuring from this point here to the back side. That's gonna give us a measurement of about three and a half inches, maybe three and seven sixteenths of an inch right in that area. The height of the bracket is going to be about four and a half inches and then the depth, this is how far it sticks out from the trailer or from the mounting surface, that's gonna be pretty close to three inches, maybe three and one-sixteenth of an inch, right in that area. If we take a measurement, the distance we have from the top hole to the bottom hole going on center, these holes are gonna have a separation measurement looks to be right on three inches.

Going this direction the holes are gonna have a separation measurement from left to right of about an inch and a quarter. The actual strap measuring from the center of the hinge to the end of the strap measures about 12 and one-eighth of an inch long. The strap width, that's gonna one and three-quarters of an inch wide and it's got two mount holes on that strap. These are separated on center apart from one another by five inches and then all the mount holes on the unit will accept five sixteenth inch diameter hardware. That's gonna do it for today's look at the T strap hinge for rear trailer doors.

Ask the Experts about this Polar Hardware Trailer Door Hinges

  • Weight Capacity for Polar T-Strap Hinge # PLR4040
    According to our contact at Polar Hardware their T-strap hinges like the 12-3/8 inch # PLR4040 that you referenced don't have a specific weight capacity. Your limiting factor is really going to be the hardware that is used to mount the hinge and not the hinge itself. If you are simply replacing existing hinges on a trailer you will just want to use the same number of hinges that you currently have.

  • Do Polar T-Strap Hinges # PLR4040 Have Weight Capacities
    We've checked with Polar in the past about whether the T-strap hinges like the 12-3/8 inch # PLR4040 have weight capacities and they've stated that they do not rate them for weight as the mounting hardware would be the limiting factory. That said, as long as you are using this in a "reasonable" application you can use your best judgment whether these would be rated high enough or not.

  • Polar Hinge for 90 Degree Corner Compatibility
    The T-Strap Hinge for Side and Rear Trailer Doors - 8" Long - Steel # PLR3408 will not be ideal for a 90 degree corner as you can see the purposeful bend at the hinge on the strap end of the hinge that would limit this. A better option for that application is the T-Strap Hinge for Rear Trailer Doors - 12-3/8" Long - Steel # PLR4040, the Square Corner Hinge with Reverse Bracket - Polished Stainless Steel - 12" # PLR2212-SSP, or the Over the Seal Hinge - Narrow Bracket - Aluminum - 12" #...
