Video Transcript for Polar Hardware Enclosed Trailer Parts - Doors - PLR2008-AS Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Wide Bracket Strap Hinge from Polar Hardware. This is for use on trailer and truck bodies. It's made from strong, durable aluminum construction. It's going to be highly resistant to rust and corrosion. The strap, it's going to have three mount holes on it. It's going to feature a non-removable center pin for maximum security.

The hinge mounting portion's going to have three mount holes on it, as well. If we take a measurement of the over all length, measuring from very end to very end, that's going to give us a measurement of pretty close to 11 1/8". Measuring from the center of the pin to the end of the strap is going to be closer to 8" long. The strap width, that's going measure 2" wide. Then the distance between the mount holes on that portion, going on center, is going to measure about 2 7/16". All the holes on the unit are going to have a diameter of 5/16".

Mounting hardware's not included. Here at the hinge, if we take a measurement, top to bottom, we're looking at 4 1/2". If we take a measurement of the depth, measuring from this point right here, kind of this flat point, to the end, that's going to give us a measurement of 2 3/8". From the center of the pin to to the back of the hinge, the very back, we're looking at about 3 1/8". Now these mount holes right here, these are separated on center by about 3 1/4". Then a diagonal measurement between these holes, it's going to be about 2 1/8". Really nice design.

This would get mounted, and then this portion right here would get attached to the door. Then, as you swing open, you can see that it allows for full opening, really nice design of the unit. Again, it's going to feature a non-removable pin for maximum security. That's going to do it for today's look at the Wide Bracket Strap Hinge from Polar Hardware.

See what our Experts say about this Polar Hardware Trailer Door Hinges

  • Recommended Strap Hinge to Replace Continuous Hinge on Enclosed Trailer Door
    I recommend going with the Polar Wide Bracket Strap Hinge # PLR2008-AS. The strap is 8 inches long and has 3 holes to install on the door as well as 3 mounting holes on the bracket. The hinge is also made out of aluminum so it will have superior resistance to rust and corrosion than most other hinges. If you go with 3 of these along the top, midsection, and bottom of your door it will help to keep your door intact when gusts of wind comes. I have attached a review video of this hinge...

  • Is Pin of Wide Bracket Strap Hinge # PLR2008-AS Aluminum
    The pin setup of the Wide Bracket Strap Hinge # PLR2008-AS that you referenced is aluminum. All of the hinge is aluminum which prevent galvanic corrosion from dissimilar metals.

  • Recommended Strap Hinge Replacement For A Sooner Horse Trailer
    Unfortunately, we do not carry a strap hinge with those dimensions. You could use the Wide Bracket Strap Hinge - Aluminum - 8" Long # PLR2008-AS you linked to and drill new holes and fill the old ones with some non-sag sealant # # 344270341437-1. I've linked our page of strap hinges if you would like to look at some other styles or a larger size.

  • Spring Loaded License Plate Frame For Open Snowmobile Trailer Use
    The only option I can think of is to custom mount your plate with a hinge. You could use a plate holder like # LP35BB or a metal plate like # CR79150 and mount it to the bottom of your trailer with a basic hinge like # PLR2008-AS. If you mount the hinge the correct way, it would allow swinging front to back without any friction and gravity would allow the plate to hang properly for travel.
