Casket Hinges, Separable Hinges for Lids

Separable hinges are commonly used on caskets for easy removal of the casket lid during finishing and upholstery after woodworking is completed. At a minimum, use four hinges per casket for a standard half couch (two piece lid) or full couch (one piece lid). Some craftsmen use six hinges for added security and for hardwood caskets. Hinges sold by each and include black #6 by 3/4 inch screws. Hinges sold in bulk (pack of 100) DO NOT include screws. 

Installation Tips for Casket Hinges...

Edge vs. Flat Mount Styles

There are two styles of hinge escutcheon or base:  edge mount style and flat mount style. An edge mount means the hinge escutcheon--the part that attaches to the casket box--is designed to fit over the edge of a standard 3/4-inch thick piece of board wood. If the top edge of your casket box wall is thicker, then you need the flat mount style of hinge.

What's Included

  • Hinge escutcheon/base (1)
  • Hinge stud (1)

Order 4-6 Hinges for EACH Casket

Bulk Pack of 100

Bulk packs include base and stud for 100 hinges. At 4 hinges per casket, this is enough hinges for 25 caskets. Screws not included in bulk packs.

To Fix or Allow Removal of Lid

Hinges work well to use three for the toe pincher. If the lid fits flush in the back, the hinges open and close properly. Lid is able to be quickly removed without disturbing the hinges.

Hinge review

While I like the design of this hinge they do have a problem. The two slotted holes in the female leaf have not been countersunk correctly and will not let the screws fully seat. This results in the screws being proud of the leaf which in turn marks the surface of the lid when closed. It took considerable time to correct this problem
