Video Transcript for Polar Hardware Enclosed Trailer Parts - Doors - PLR2512-AS Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the over the seal hinge from Polar Hardware. This hinge is designed to bridge door moldings or door seals. It's going to give about a two and three quarter inch clearance, we can tell that by taking a measurement from this area down here, to where the strap lays flat on the surface, so if we do that measurement you can see that that's where we're going to get about the two and three quarter clearance from. This is made from and aluminum construction, the narrow bracket is designed for where spacing is limited. Mounting hardware is not included so that does need to be provided separately. Here at the hinge it's going to feature a non-removable pin for maximum security. Now if we take a measurement of the strap length, measuring from the hinge to the end of the strap, we can see that that's gong to give us a measurement of right around twelve inches so the strap length is twelve inches.

The strap width, that's gong to give us a measurement of two inches. Then you can see right here on the strap we're going to have three mount holes. Those mount holes are going to give us a diameter of five sixteenths of an inch. The distance that we have on center between each mount hole, so from this one to this one, three and one eighth and then from this one we're also looking at three and one eighths so from the center of this hole to the center of this hole we're looking at about seven and one quarter inches. Taking a look here at the hinge, this is going to give us a height, measuring from edge to edge of about four and a half inches. The mount hole separation, center on center, that's going to be three and one quarter inches.

The hole diameter for the hinge portion is going to be three eighths if an inch. If we take a look at the hinge width, a couple of measurements I want to give you real quick. From the outer edge to this point right here, that's going to give us a measurement of about two and one eighths of an inch. Now if we just measure the flat portion right here, that's gong to give us a hinge width of about an inch and a quarter. Last measurement that I want to go over with you real quick is simply the overall length, so measuring edge to edge, this is going to give us an overall length measurement of right around fourteen inches long. That's gong to do it for today's look at the over the seal hinge from Polar Hardware..

Thanks for your help. I bought a new toy. It fits in my little enclosed trailer. But the only way that I can get me out is to climb through the back window of the ROV. So I'm working on installing a new door on the left side. That way I can get in and out with the ROV inside. I'll install the hinges on the left side. I had to order the door latch from another site. I had a trailer vendor build me a new door. Thanks again for your help. I'll be sure to buy more items from you in the future. 462006

Worked great. Lightweight aluminum but seems strong enough. 400812

hinge to replace broken side door piano hinge. There are no instructions as to how to install the hinge so it is trial and error of drilling to many holes. There are no solid areas on the door to mount the hinge. this is not the fault of the hinge but the trailer manufacturer. 383918

in the course of rebuilding the rear swing door on my wells cargo enclosed 5x8 trailer,i decided to switch from the banjo hinge system to these strap hinges figering they will do a much better job of handling the weight. the company handled my order fast and efficently without any hassles. they arrived within a few days and look to be very well built and quite sturdy and more than adequite as i hoped they would be.pleasure to deal with and highly recommend this company ! 365926

  • Can I Reverse the Direction My Hinge is Mounted on My RV Door
    I think I found a solution to your question. We carry the Square Corner Hinge with Reverse Bracket, # PLR2212-AS, that will replace your old hing on your RV. This hinge has the same dimensions as the part that you referenced, but the hinge bracket is made exactly like the one on your current hinge.

  • What Type of Hardware Should be Used to Install Over the Seal Hinge # PLR2512-AS
    The type of hardware you use to mount Over the Seal Hinge # PLR2512-AS depends on the surface material it will be mounted to. If the material is wood you would use wood screws. If it is metal then ideally you would want machine screws that are the same metal as the surface. This is to avoid galvanic corrosion. Some surfaces may be metal or fiberglass but beneath that skin be made of wood or some other material. You would want to use hardware that is right for the material beneath the...

  • Difference Between Strap Hinge 2512 and Over-the-Seal Hinge PLR2512-AS
    In the case of hinge # PLR2512-AS, which is an over the seal hinge, and a strap hinge # 2512, there isn't a difference. A hinge that is designed with that raised section near that actual hinge part can be considered an over the seal hinge because it reaches over a seal or molding. It just so happens that many hinges described as strap hinges have the same design. I have linked videos on both hinges for you.

  • 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" #...
