The floating dock hinge pin hardware secures female and male hinges. Hinge pins also secure “T” and male hinges together on floating dock sections. Hinge pins include a nylon bushing which reduce wear on the pin. Without the bushing material, the holes in hinges stretch or become too large from the constant movement of metal on metal. Nylon bushing material also helps to reduce noise as the hinges work together to adjust for fluctuating water levels and wake movement.
Hinge Pins and bushing material should be checked regularly for wear especially in areas with heavy wave and/or wake movement. Replacing worn or damaged bushings and pins will increase the life span of your female/male and “T”/male hinges. Use this floating dock hinge pin with Metal Craft female, male and t-hinges sold separately.
