    Hi,

    I have been looking to replace the aluminium around my LPG Locker door.

    Has anyone used/sourced the aluminium hinge material at the top please?

    Photo attached.It has flats on each piece to attach to the top of the door and the RV the same as a normal hinge.

    I could replace the whole lot but cannot find a similar door shape.:Sad:

    Try your local caravan repair shop. All euro caravan windows are fitted the same way.

    Hiya Brian.

    I must admit that had crossed my mind.

    Would have to be stainless though.

    Any ideas on suppliers?

    Many Thanks.:thumb:

    Hi
    if piano hinge would do the job, we use alli hinge, where are you? we could send a bit if the size is OK and you can't find what you want.

    my first look is www.rswww.com

    38 hits from "piano hinge".

    I'm sure Mr Google would prove many more - oh, not many, only 430,000 hits.

    Why Stainless ? I'd have thought ali on ali less corrosive.
