DIRAK has introduced a 180° lift-off hinge that incorporates D-SNAP Technology. Until now, screws were required to install a lift-off hinge, the company says. The new hinge, marketed under the SNAP-LINE brand, consists of two components, the door component and the frame component. The door component of the 180° lift-off hinge snaps into place on the door, with no need for mounting hardware.
A lift-off hinge makes it possible to remove a door from a cabinet or enclosure without disassembling the hinge. Retracting the pin halves enables the door to be removed. The SNAP-LINE 180° lift-off hinge adds an additional level of convenience to the traditional lift-off hinge, because the door part of the hinge, with pre-fitted pin-halves, snaps easily into a prepared cut-out on the door.

The lift-off door hinge is equally suitable for right-hand or left-hand applications, reducing the need to stock different part numbers for different door configurations. Door part, frame part and pin-halves are zinc die-cast with E-coated pin halves for the frame component to aid in corrosion resistance.
