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.

Supplies when I needed them.

I had the unfortunate opportunity to build a casket for a family member. I found what I needed quickly online. I was able to have next day delivery available. Everything arrived the next day in perfect shape. Thank you for being available in times of need.

I may give a higher rating once I get directions and install them. Why don't directions come with the product?

Hi Jim, how can we help you? These hinges install just like any other cabinet hinge. The base attaches to the top edge of hour casket sidewall. The stud attaches to the lid. Most casket makers do not mortise in the base, just attach on top. Then, with all bases installed, position you lid(s) so they are properly centered. Then mark the lid at the two edges of the base where the hinge stud will fit in. Then turn over the lids and attach the studs. To attach the lid to the casket, hold lid open about 100 to 105 degrees and the stud will drop into the base. Then pull the lid closed and the stud will not separate from the base.
