Hi, guys. My name's Darrel and I'm head of the tech team here at LocksOnline. Many thanks for taking time to tune in and have a quick look at one of our product review videos. Now, we're putting these short little videos together to give you, the customer, the opportunity to see the product in detail, in focus, in my hand and therefore that'll hopefully provide you with a little bit more information than what a bit of descriptive text and maybe an image may have to offer.
What I want to talk to you today about is this particular range of box hinges that we have. They're spring-assisted box hinges. They're designed to sit on a big box, etc. and you want to be able to lift the lid up and down. These will assist to lift the lid up and down to suit your particular application. They come in two different sizes. This is the 12 kilo holding force or lifting force hinge and they come as a pair, one for the left-hand and one for the right-hand.
Now, to give you some sort of idea of the operation, I'm not in a position to force against this spring here. I've tried it and it's a pretty formidable spring. What I can do is if I push it past its fulcrum, it allows me to quickly pop that off there like that. Now it gives me the opportunity to explain to you its operation.
Effectively, that would be the hinge in its closed position like that. The idea is that when you actually operate it like that, as you can imagine that this is your lid, this will now open up like that, and allow you then to get into whatever you want on the inside. If I reverse it there like that, that's how it actually works there like that. It allows you to open up the lid as you can see there. If you can imagine the lid is here and as I open that up there like that, it then lifts itself up slightly off the base and at the same time then spring then that you have there assists you in being able to lift it up.
When you go to push it down, it forces against the spring. It stretches the spring out and therefore then allows you to give a little more relaxed control over a lid that can be quite heavy. There are two different sizes. This is the 12 kilo version. When it comes to fixings, you've got two fixings here. This doesn't come with fixings so if you're looking to get some fixings, either screw fixings or some nuts and bolts through the actual product or the box that you plan on using. And of course then, it's got these key hole adjusters here to allow you to move the lid backwards and forwards slightly. It gives you a little bit of degree of control to be able to eventually then find the right position for you to make sure it's set correctly.
What I'll do is I'll give you a couple of measurements on this now just to give you some sort of overall idea. If I was to measure the overall length of the whole unit, give or take a couple of metres, that's 190mm there overall. The actual fixing plate here is 100mm by 50mm, just yeah, 50mm. Those fixing centres there are 65mm and the size of that hole there, you're going to be looking at getting somewhere in the region of about a 7 mil or a 6 mil bolt through there no problem at all.
This particular part of the fixing plate here, the overall length of that is 85mm and the width of that is 20mm. The centres there, I'll go from centre there to centre there, just to give you customers an idea of what sort of degree of movement we have there, you'll be looking at about 63mm there. I don't know if you can zoom in there and maybe you can see the ruler yourself there just to give yourselves a little bit more of an idea. Once you've got your fixing then you can put a small screw in there and that stops it then moving should it need to do so.
Of course, once it's sitting and it's all situated nice and tidy, etc., obviously, you pop the spring back in there like that and then everything then will be back the way it is. British strength on that spring, you might say.
