Garage Door Hinges
The garage door hinges are an important part of the garage door as they hold the sections together and allow them to roll around the tracks. As with any moving part on a garage door the hinges can break and wear out over time. The 14 gauge hinges that we offer are strong enough to handle the heaviest of residential garage doors. We stock the four hinges needed for any garage door up to 8' high.
The hinges are numbered from #1 to #4 and are considered the end hinges. The #1 hinge is also used in any of the center hinge positions.It is important to use the same numbered hinge for the one you are replacing. The only exception is the #1 hinge that can be used as a #1 end hinge or as a center hinge. The #1 hinge goes between the 1st section (bottom) and the 2nd section. The #2 hinge is attached between the 2nd and 3rd section while the #3 hinge is between the 3rd and 4th sections. If you have an 8' high door then you would also use the #4 hinge that attaches the 4th and 5th (top) section.
