Surface mounted 120 degree door hinge with secured hinge pin from FDB Panel Fittings

Our new 4-124 120° concealed hinge is designed for surface mounted doors on specialist enclosures and cabinets where it enables easy door removal/re-fitting without loss of the securely retained hinge pin.

Service, maintenance or repair of equipment may be carried out with peace of mind knowing that the hinge pin is held in place with a cleverly designed clip in POM plastic. This mechanism also ensures that the pin does not shake free when subject to vibration during transport for example or onsite during installation.

The 4-124 is available for weld-on or screw-on fitment (zinc plated steel with M6 screws) in either LH or RH configurations.
