Also known as hook and band and hook and ride hinges, the cranked band and gudgeon hinges are a two part hinge comprising of the hinge plate or hook which fits to the gate post or frame and a band or strap that fits to the gates/doors.

The hook simply sits within the end of the strap hinge.

The hook and band hinges are quite simple to fit, afixing to the gates with a combination of screws and one bolt.

Main downside to the cranked band and gudgeon hinges is that you cannot adjust them easily after hanging your gates and your gates can be lifted off their hinges, unless the top hinge pin is fitted upside down. Consider adjustable hinges if opting for a DIY install especially on gates as you’ll make your task a lot easier!

What size cranked band & gudgeon gate hinge do I need?

Length of band and gudgeon hinges are determined by width of each gate and not weight (no gate hinges are tested for weight).
For normal domestic use choose a hinge that is 1/3rd the width of each gate (i.e. 900mm/36″ wide gate then choose a  hinges at least 300mm / 12 inch long)
For heavy duty domestic use or industrial use then choose a hinge half the width of each gate (i.e. 1200mm/4ft wide gate then choose a hinge at least 600mm / 24 inch long).

If unsure then go for the next size hinge up.
