Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19724202C1] The hinge halves (1,2) are fixed respectively to the door and door-post, the pin (3) being held in a bearing (4) requiring no maintenance in the eye (6) of the first half so that it can turn freely but not slide, and also turning in the eye (12) of the other half when assembled. A flange (16) on the pin fits between the halves and has a cone face towards the detachable one and fitting in a mating taper bore in the latter. An externally-threaded extension (17) on the pin is shorter than the distance between two cone faces (13,21) in the bore (14) of the second half. The spigot (22) is joined to the cone-portion (19) of a nut (20) working against the cone face (21) in the bore (14), and fits in the annular space (23) between the bore (14) and the extension (17) on the pin. The external diameter of the spigot (22), which is tapped can be the same as the clear width of the cylindrical portion of the bore (14) while its length can be at least one-third of that of the bore.
